Reporter's Stupid Question Gets Stern Rebuke From President Trump

President Donald Trump humiliated CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid on Tuesday afternoon after she asked him a pathetic question about why his administration is supposedly not doing enough to get Americans back to work.

During a Q&A following a meeting between President Trump and his cabinet, Reid asked him, "Mr. President, why haven't you announced a plan to get 36 million unemployed Americans back to work? You're overseeing historic economic despair. What's the plan? Where's the plan?"

So there you have it. Not only is the coronavirus his fault, but now the unemployment rate and "historic economic despair" are also on President Trump. Apparently Paula hasn't been paying attention to the numerous times the president has called for the country to be reopened or to his announcement of the Opening Up America Again guidelines.

Having none of it, the president hit back, "Oh, I think we've announced a plan. We’re opening up our country, just a rude person you are. We're opening up our country. We're opening it up very fast. The plan is that each state is opening and it is opening up very effectively and you - when you see the numbers I think, even you will be impressed which is pretty hard to impress you."

President Trump then tried to move on to the next question, but Reid interjected with an attempt at a follow-up, saying, "A lot of these jobs are not coming back."

But the president shot her down: "That’s enough for you."
