Liberal reporters have their panties in a bunch because President Trump has been giving a significant share of presser questions to conservative news outlets.
Apparently, they think that they, and only they, can ask the “tough questions” that presidents should answer.
Never mind that the questions the “not real news” reporters have asked are excellent.
Also never mind that, for eight long years, these same “real news” reporters have been slobbering all over their BFF Barack who was, you know, the president at the time.
Peter Hasson, Reporter and Associate Editor at the “not real news” Daily Caller, compiled a list of 13 “hard-hitting” questions that these “real” reporters asked back when the president preferred them to conservative reporters.
