Liberal reporter high-fived for verbal fight with Trump

Trump press conferencePresident Donald Trump is accustomed to tussling with the combative press corps, and seems to relish the fight, but recently he just ignored a reporter’s jab at a White House press conference.

 “After three and a half years, do you regret at all all the lying you've done to the American people?” asked Huffington Post reporter S.V. Date.

If the President was surprised by the question, he didn’t let on.

“That who has done?” Trump asked.

“You have done,” the reporter replied.

But the President ignored the question and moved on to the next reporter.

Dan Gainor of Media Research Center says he wouldn't have been so calm.

“I give Donald Trump credit,” Gainor says, “because he didn't even respond -- didn't address that. I would have been tempted to ask him, Does your mother regret having given birth to you? Do you regret being an idiot?”

Date, a veteran reporter, later commented on social media that he has wanted to ask Trump that question for five years.

Gainor suspects that Date’s confrontation with President Trump earned the reporter lots of high-fives from his Trump-hating colleagues. In fact, the reporter’s Twitter page was quickly filled with new followers and lots of praise.

“They hate Donald Trump more than they hate Hitler. That's just a reality,” Gainor warns. “They hate conservatives. And here's the other reality that people don't talk about: Inside the Beltway, they all hate all of us.”
