Trump Blasts Reporters For ‘Smiling’ And Asking Biden ‘Easy’ Questions ‘Meant For a Child’

President Donald Trump on Friday slammed the media for what he described as easy questions given to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, saying that the questions were “meant for a child” and complaining that “anyone can answer them.”

Trump’s rant came during a press briefing Friday evening after being asked about a report in The Atlantic about the president making disparaging remarks about fallen U.S. service members in France in 2018.

The president blasted the Atlantic as a “second-rate magazine” and went on to criticize reporters who asked Biden questions following an event in Wilmington, Delaware, earlier Friday afternoon.

“I watched the interview with sleepy Joe Biden and … you didn’t ask questions like that,” Trump said. “They were like, meant for a child. Those questions were meant for a child. Smiles on faces of reporters — not like you and you,” the president said, looking at reporters in the briefing room. “They were smiles on the reporters. What do you think? Take a look at those questions that they asked him. They were not meant for a grown up, they were meant for a child.”

“I look at that and I think it’s a disgrace,” Trump continued, referencing the report in the Atlantic. “And then I watch Biden getting asked questions that are really meant for a child to answer, anybody could answer. and I look at the level of question that you people ask. I mean honestly, it’s disgraceful.”

Trump has long attacked the media as “unfair and in cahoots” with the Democratic party. On Friday, he suggested that the piece in the Atlantic was a “hoax” and published deliberately to hurt his reelection chances.
