    "friendly question" You know how I know you didn't bother to watch the lead up video?

    Kind of like all the uninformed masses that are just spoon fed the short version and never see the truth.

    I disagree.

    So a reporter trying to bait a POTUS is new?

    The question, and even the buildup, invited a, "I would comfort them by telling them we're doing everything we can and we'll all get through this together." Literally, the exact words he's been saying over and over. Then, the only soundbite would be The Talking Points.

    Smile while responding, then backchannel that that reporter (NBC?) won't get called on anymore. Done.

    The problem is not the reporter. The problem is not the process. The problem is that Trump takes things personally.

    It was a fair question.

    While I agree with you on how _I_ would have handled it...

    Was it a _fair_ question depends a lot on your definiton of "fair". If it was a "fair" question, then why the need to "never call on the reporter anymore?" . So I think we can agree that it WAS a loaded question at minimum.

    Now as for how to handle that, a Reagan would have done as you suggested above. He had TONS of liberal detractors who were constantly up his keister with similar questions. He parried them with a smile and with skill. Trump has an ego and is much more combative in his approach. I think it's also fair to say that media are much more rabid in their approach to him.

    Obviously, you don't understand the roles in the video.

    "Loaded" questions are fair questions for a reporter in the WH press pool asking questions directly to the POTUS. They come with the job.

    Part of the reason to backchannel that the reporter will be frozen out is that's how the game is played. It doesn't meant the reporter ACTUALLY won't get called on. It sends a message to the editor to back the **** off with the grandstanding. That's an optional step.

    Another route is to thank the reporter afterwards for contributing to his next campaign video. That treatment is probably worth a million bucks from sympathetic donors. "See how bad I get treated....." waahmbulance

    Remember the "Covington Kids" and how the media and other libtards were ready to lynch them because they only saw an edited version of what really happened?

    When you mention a 'single' question two times, it indicates that you only saw one of the questions which means you only saw the edited version of what really happened.

    First, you used quotes (those little "" things) which suggest I actual wrote "single." I did not. At least, it doesn't look like I did. If I did - feel free to actually quote me. The fact that you "quote" me incorrectly indicates you don't actually read what I write, which means many things.

    Second, I did refer to the question as a singular question. There was a single question that broke Trump's resolve to stay on-message. (Not that it takes much to break his resolve.) That question was not difficult. It was not tricky. It was exactly the kind of question he should want.

    If he was focused on leading the country, it whatever else the reporter said wouldn't have mattered. Instead, he gets caught up in ego and insult.
