President Trump Takes Down Acosta After Silly Question About ‘Happy Talk’

CNN’s Jim Acosta argued with President Trump after the network’s reporter questioned whether the White House daily coronavirus task force briefings had become “happy talk” sessions designed to paint a “rosy picture” of what’s happening amid the pandemic.

“These people have done an incredible job,” Trump said, pointing to others who were on the stage. “This is not happy talk. Maybe it’s happy talk for you. It’s not happy talk for me. We are talking about death.”

“Thousands of people have died,” he added. “These are the saddest news conferences that I’ve ever had. I don’t like doing them. You know why? Because I’m talking about death.”

“That’s not a fair question,” Trump said toward the end of the exchange. “When you ask a question like that it’s very insulting to a lot of great people.”
