What is wrong with Rubio?

Rubio's terrible smear

Oliver Darcy emails: Marco Rubio on Sunday claimed, without providing any evidence, that some journalists "can’t contain their glee & delight" reporting that the United States now has more coronavirus cases than China. The appalling suggestion was immediately met with forceful pushback from reporters who took offense.

"Senator, either you have no clue what you're talking about or you're being a jerk. I have friends in this industry who have the virus," shot back the Daily Beast's Sam Stein. "We have to make exceptionally challenging calls about sending reporters into hot spots or places where they could get it. Do better." ABC's Jon Karl replied with a simple question: "Who are you talking about, Senator Rubio? Who feels 'glee & delight' when more people are sick? Who?

Not Rubio, but another example of Trump becoming pissy when a reporter asked him about statements he made (up) just days ago:

Quote

Trump called on PBS NewsHour reporter Yamiche Alcindor.

“Mr. President, I have two questions,” she said. “The first is you’ve said repeatedly that you think that some of the equipment that governors are requesting they don’t actually need. You said New York might not need 30,000 …”

Trump didn’t let her finish.

I didn’t say that,” he said.

Yeah, he did.

Quote

“You said it on Sean Hannity’s Fox News,” Alcindor responded, accurately.

“Come on, come on. Why don’t you people — why don’t you act in a little more positive? It’s always ‘get ya, get ya, get ya.’ And you know what? That’s why nobody trusts the media anymore.”

Waaaahhhhh! A reporter asked me about BS I personally spread to my base on Fox News. Waaahhhh!

Quote

... a few minutes later, in a display of professional support, CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond handed the microphone back to the NewsHour journalist so she could ask Trump which public health experts supported his claims that more people would die from the economic impact of social distancing than from coronavirus infections. Trump didn’t give any names.

oh snap smiley

From Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry:"
"We got the bubble-headed bleach-blonde who comes on at five
She can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye
It's interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry"

Yes, sensationalist news broadcasters do sometimes seem to get joy out of bad news that gets them ratings, but I've not myself seen any indication of that with COVID-19.

In the immortal words of Cliff Steele, he's an "arrogant @#$%& knuckle".
