> Acosta: “Is there any fairness to the criticism” .... blah, blah, blah. I guess that’s a new way to say “ some critics say”.
> Trump should not answer any questions that are just trying to gotcha. He should just move on to the next person. Acosta doesn’t like the way Trump is answering it so he interrupts Trump. I DESPISE Acosta.
I did not hear every word of the exchange closely, but it sounded to me that Acosta was trying to modulate his question and that Trump was trying to modulate his response.
Y’all may notice that Alcindor was sitting in the back row and most of the time she seemed to be both attentive and relatively quiet (at least to the small degree that I could determine). I think Trump’s complaints about the MSM reporters have been having a somewhat net positive effect on the overall tone of the briefings. Many if not all reporters now seem to be more respectful of Trump and the team. I could be wrong and anyways this is just subjective.
Did Alcindor ask a question during this briefing? I could not tell. I did not personally see her ask a question, nor try to ask a question. IMHO in the past she almost always tried to ask a snarky question.
