BIAS: NBC News Reporter Gets Cute With Question to President Trump

178

Apparently following the “Jim Acosta Playbook” in her search for greater visibility, NBC News correspondent Ali Vitali decided to get cute with her opinionated question over in Seoul, South Korea on Tuesday. Smack dab in the middle of a press conference that was supposed to be focused on President Trump’s Asian trip, foreign policy, and the tensions with North Korea, Vitali thought it would be a wonderful time to play “gotcha” with Trump on the subject of gun control.

“You’ve been talking about putting extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States, but I wonder if you’d consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun?” she asked, apropos of nothing.

Now, clearly Vitali was trying to link the question to Sunday’s tragic shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, which makes her question all the more embarrassing. After all, we learned quickly that shooter Devin Kelley should not have passed his background check and wouldn’t have if the Air Force bureaucracy had done its job. So, indeed, there are no additional laws that would have prevented the massacre in Texas, short of banning assault rifles. Even then, there’s nothing to say that Kelley wouldn’t have simply chosen another means to his destructive ends.

But what really bugs us about Vitali’s question is not that it’s yet another bit of nonsense about gun control, it’s the way it was phrased. This is not a question constructed to demonstrate intellectual curiosity or journalistic integrity. This is a question designed to get Vitali some airtime and perhaps inspire some lame thoughtpiece in the Washington Post. It’s a question designed to get a “Hell yeah!” from liberal haters who think it is the height of cleverness to turn Trump’s “extreme vetting” language back on him in this way. It’s a question designed, in short, to get half a million views on YouTube. And that really says more about the state of the media these days than the liberal bias that infects everything in their reporting.

Truthfully, this question deserved a classic Trump Eye Roll and a “Next?” but the president actually gave a pretty decent answer to Vitali nonetheless.

“If you did what you’re suggesting there would have been no difference three days ago, and you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun in his truck and shoot him, and hit him and neutralize him,” Trump said. “Instead of having 26 dead, he would’ve had hundreds more dead.”

Very possible.

But in the end, Vitali didn’t want to hear Trump’s common-sense answer to her buffoonish question – she just wanted to get her dig in at the president, Republicans, the NRA, and, perhaps, Islamophobia. She, like so many of her colleagues, is an activist masquerading as a journalist. But hey, we’re sure she’ll have her own talk show soon enough.

    Her question was how can we save American lives because we are at war with our selves and we need commonsense gun control. People who are on the government’s terrorist watch list should NOT BE ALLOWED to purchase guns, American voters support for universal background checks ranges from 88 percent to 93 percent in national polls.

    WE NEED TO KEEP GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF THE MENTALLY DISTURBED AND TERRORISTS TO SAVE AMERICA LIVES.

    Gun deaths
    The estimated total number of firearms-related deaths from 1968-2016 is 1.58 million. The official number for 1968-2015 is 1.55 million, and we have assumed the number of deaths in 2016 as being the mid-point between the two previous years (2014 and 2015).
    • 1968 to 1991: 764,124
    • 1992 to 1998: 249,017
    • 1999 to 2015: 533,879
    • 2016 (estimated as mid-point between 2014 and 2015): 34,923
    • 1968 to 2015: 1,547,020
    • 1968 to 2016 (estimated): 1,581,943

    • imbog

      And knives and large rocks

      • Lori

        And masks and bicycle locks !

    • Robert Uda

      Unfortunately, those who did the killing are mostly liberal democrats. That’s the solution! Ban all liberals and democrats from owning firearms. Problem solved!

      • mas_smarba

        Evidence please for “those who did the killing are mostly liberal Democrats”?

        • Karen Nicholas

          Research…AGAIN. Instead of asking for someone to do your homework FOR you..it’s EASY. The gentleman is CORRECT..in the time it took you to type that response you could have those FACTS right in front of you From Oswald, to Lanza, to the latest wacko in the Texas church shooting…ALL registered Democrats.

          • Mark Plenn

            Right on Karen, you’re my kind of Lady!

      • Mark Plenn

        I agree, they want it give it to them, and only them; oh, and don’t let them have armed security!

        • Robert Uda

          Take their armed security away, and you’ll have a real problem on your hands. They are just double-standard folks.

    • Frank Taylor

      This guy would not have passed our current background check for guy buyers if the air force had not failed to report his discharge. We have a constitutional right to own guns. I do not , but i support others rights who do. No currently proposed law would have stopped this. This guy had very serious mental issues and would have found other ways to carry out his plan if guns were not available to him. There are bad democrats and bad Republicans and this had nothing to do with politics only a mental issue and domestic problem with ex-in laws.

      • Deborah Pratt

        It’s been said before and bears repeating–Gun laws that forbid ‘honest’ citizens from bearing arms, does nothing to curb the ‘black market’ of smuggled arms coming over the borders. Just as prohibition did nothing to curb the sale of liquor!! Obviously, those involved in our law enforcement need to be more responsible in their jobs, as well. Records need to be kept and the ‘vetting’ performed as required. Nothing is 100% but it certainly can help bring the numbers down. We have the laws–they need to be enforced. The ‘records’ need to be kept up to date!!

        • Mark Plenn

          How many Judges do not include the mandatory 5 year added penalty for having a firearm when committing a crime?

      • Mark Plenn

        It seams that only the Dummicrats are pushing more gun control.

    • BH

      The problem with banning the no fly list is that there are a lot of people on that list that should not be on it. There are better ways to catch the bad ones.

    • Ralph Eye

      does that 1.5 million killed since 1968 include members of the armed forces. if not, then Chicago is worse off than we thought.

      • Deborah Pratt

        Chicago is worse off than anyone ‘thinks’!! Not enough is being reported on how ‘bad off’ Chicago is! After all, isn’t what Melania is wearing today much more important??

    • Karen Nicholas

      You can get put on that “list” without “due process”, unbeknownst to you or anyone else. Try getting OFF it if you by chance find out your’e ON it…it’s a nightmare! Trey Gowdy SHREDDED that arguement long ago…live. Research it. No..your RIGHTS, not ANY of them, can be infringed without DUE PROCESS!

      • Mark Plenn

        Then put honest people in office so that every honest citizen gets DUE PROCESS! That will eliminate almost half the Democrats in office!

    • Mark Plenn

      In regulated (GUN CONTROL) areas the violent and firearms crimes are at a higher rate than in the RIGHT TO CARRY AREAS asshole. So take your reasonable gun law ass out and read some real numbers POSER!

  • Richard Alex

    Ban the bi**h, from future another press conference.

      • boone1

        Well liberals are dumb asses to start off with and this POS proved that right off the bat.

        • The Redhawk

          SPOT ON! these Idiots give credibility to the HOLE under Their DONKEY’s TAIL

      • Mark Plenn

        Cute wording, but better to spank some sense into the hussie!

        • The Redhawk

          Why not just let them BITCH slap each other around….. They have the World Laughing at them

      • Mark Plenn

        so true!

        • The Redhawk

          YES… Give them the FREEDOM to continue to prove what “STUOID” is all about for the World to SEE !!

  • mas_smarba

    It was a perfectly legitimate question. You are just exposing your extremism and bias by complaining about it.

    AAFCPS /Sam Abrams – Rochester NY

    • smiley522

      Wasn’t the time are the place!

      • Robert Uda

        What kind of sentence is that? Please clarify.

        • smiley522

          He was on his Asian trip to talk about foreign policy and the tensions over N. Korea! She should have been asking questions that pertained to that! The wrong time because it was like she was trying to embarrass the President in front of a foreign Government!

          • Robert Uda

            Is that what you meant by writing, “Wasn’t the time are the place!”? Somehow, I didn’t get from that short sentence the same meaning as your three-sentence paragraph. Now, I agree with what you said. Your short sentence just did not convey that to me the first time around.

    • Robert Uda

      Who set you up as the standard setter for determining what is a perfectly legitimate question and not a perfectly legitimate question? Who set you up as the decider as to what is extremism and bias? You are no different than everyone else. So, just shut up and go away.

      • mas_smarba

        Dear Robert Uda — I think I am a little different from most people, I am exceptionally well educated. For instance I can easily read French, Spanish, Italian, Latin and both Ancient and Modern Greek. I can manage German too with my little dictionary at hand – part of the reference library of 1000+ books I keep at home. I am well traveled too, have lived in London, NYC, New Mexico, New England, California, Greece. And I have authored well-reviewed books . QED?

        I eagerly await your response. Sam Abrams Rochester NY mas.smarba@gmail.com

        • Robert Uda

          I won’t say anything to that except that if one is as educated and smart as you say you are, you would not need to run off all that you did. It would be obvious in what you wrote. Sorry, I don’t see it. By having all that behind your name, are you saying that gives you the right to set yourself up as the standard setter? Give us a break! You sound like Obama–one who knows all, sees all, and has the right to lecture all.

          • mas_smarba

            Dear Robert Uda—– We all, as citizens in a republic have both the right and the duty to inform our- selves and to form and express opinions on matters of public interest. In that respect, I am certainly no different from my fellow Americans. I do think that he opinions of those of us who are better educated should and do carry more weight in the minds of far-minded observers. – Sam Abrams, Rochester NY –

          • Robert Uda

            You are certainly entitled to your own opinions, which is fine. I was just concerned about you setting yourself up as the “Dear Abby” of the LinkedIn World. It’s that elitist, holier-than-thou approach to writing that strikes me the wrong way. Now that I understand where you are coming from, press on, my friend. Damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead!

          • Robert Uda

            What do you mean by “I do think that he opinions of those of us….” Are you referring to “he opinions” vs. “she opinions,” which would be a gender difference regarding opinions? Furthermore, what do you mean by “far-minded observers”? Is that opposed to “near-minded observers”? Why not “fair-minded observers”? That would make more sense to me.

        • Robert Uda

          If I remember correctly, NYC is within New England. What say you?

          • mas_smarba

            No , NYC is not in New England, which consists of the states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts Connecticut and Rhode Island. Sam mas.smarba@gmail.com

          • Robert Uda

            New England consists of six states. You missed one, which is Maine. New England is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Canada, and the State of New York. You live in Rochester, New York, so you should know the six states of New England. We lived in Enfield, Connecticut, one of the six New England states, for about 18 months.

          • mas_smarba

            sorry I missed Maine. /sam

        • erleebird

          I think we’ve all heard the expression, “Educated Idiots!”

          • Frank Taylor

            We only have his comment to back up his strong educational background, not to mention has nothing to do with the inappropriate question asked by bimbo.

        • Roy Ota

          You forgot about COMMON SENSE…without it, all your knowledge is wasted!!!!

        • Karen

          Yet your a troll?

        • Frank Taylor

          good background, but has nothing to do with whether the question was appropriate under the circumstances. It had nothing to do with the trip or the purpose of the trip. It was an intended gotcha question to goad Trump, but failed in its objective. Back in the states, a slightly different version of question might be appropriate. all other questions were confined to topics at hand as they should have been.

    • Robert Uda

      AAFCPS = As Any Fool Can Plainly See

      If one is a fool, one usually cannot plainly see things. If he could, he wouldn’t be a fool. QED

      • mas_smarba

        The point is that there are some things which are so glaringly obvious that even a fool can
        easily see them. Got it? /Sam

        • Robert Uda

          No, real fools cannot discriminate the difference. You like gold? I have some for you, free. It’s called fools gold.

    • mas_smarba,
      I can agree with what you are saying because the person does not understand the issue with background checks. Background checks do not always work and based on what we know at present, is not likely to be solved anytime soon. That is also true of vetting. Therefore,vetting proposed foreigners is not the equivalent of stopping firearms from getting into wrong hands. Background checks work only when the person who seeks weapons for the purpose of mass killings has a prior history of violence or mental incapacity to use as firearm for an illegal purpose. The comparison is not apples to apples but apples to oranges.

    • Firewagon

      Conflating vetting immigrants/refugees/illegals commensurate with our 2nd Amendment “rights” or even to verifying a persons “suitability” to purchase a firearm is, as Mr. Spock might opine, ILLOGICAL! But, these wags are anything but “logical.” In this latest whack’s case, extreme vetting, a.k.a. background check, FAILED. Grab a clue, you unconscious flack, there are NO 100% guarantees of any SAFETY this side of paradise!

    • Frank Taylor

      nothing wrong with question. It clearly however had nothing to do with the current trip or issues that led to this 11 day trip. She could have waited until her return to this country to ask the question. It was the singular question off topic and was a gotcha attempt that backfired on her. she showed her true anti-Trump colors.

  • Robert Uda

    Why do they let reporters like this one go on the trip? She should be banned from following the POTUS.

    • FloridaBoyee

      Let the BI*** fly home on her on DIME!!

  • Bryce Wells Sr

    President Trump Until The Fake News Media Quits Lying about You Take No Questions From them That Have No Desire for any Answer They Just want to Take Whatever You Say and Twist it by Lying! Enough is Enough America!

    • Disgruntled

      Wouldn’t it have been more interesting if Trump had responded with ” before I ansewer your question would you please tell me is this question relative to our discussion of international issues or is this an attempt to promote your ability to probe my opinion on an unrelated issue for your personal opportunity to show support of a political opinion on gun control”.

      • Linda

        Very eloquently stated ; – )

        • Firewagon

          However, cudda been much shorter. Such as when “Candidate Trump” simply told Ramos, “Shut up, sit down, you haven’t been called on!” My fav, however, wudda been just: “Next Question!”

          • Linda

            LoL right!

      • Patriot47

        “Next question” would have said the same thing.

      • irene

        VERY CLASSY ANSWER!!! LOVE IT!!!!

      • Kathryn Jordan

        Couldn’t have agreed with you more. If more presidents had done that, it would have caught on. Then again, maybe it would not have. But I love your classy answer.

      • tes d’aless

        I was thinking that myself – Trump has to be ready for smart a s s lunatics’ questions!

        • Mark Plenn

          The President tried to give the tart a chance to ask a real question, but as liberasses always do she acted stupid!

          • Brady

            Not an act on her part.

          • crazyfreddie

            VERY TRUE

          • Mark Plenn

            Brady your right, but I sure that she was planted by the Clinton/Obama Cartel!

      • Mark Plenn

        That question would be to much for snowflake, she’d cry sexual harassment because the President used his power to subdue her!

      • Brady

        No he should not even look at her or any agency who would hire a fool.

      • Mark Plenn

        The slut doesn’t deserve the time of day from this POTUS!

    Mr Uda – sorry for the typo. Of course I meant “fair minded”” Sam Abrams

  • Stephen Griffith

    Just Med Mad Media reporter not doing anything meaningful! They want to be part of the News instead of reporting the News so sad!

    • Deborah Pratt

      I’m of the ‘older’ generation and I’m seeing a disturbing trend among the ‘young’!! What ‘is it’ that they have such a desperate ‘need’ to be publicly ‘noticed’? Is it a lack of ‘self esteem’? They ‘need’ other people to tell them they are ‘worth’ something–‘anything’? I watch these crowds and if there is a ‘camera’ in the area–they start acting ridiculous!! Like a ‘9-year old’ showing off!! OK–we expect a 9-year old to act like that! It’s a ‘phase’ they go through while growing up! So–what happened here? Did they all get ‘stuck’ at age 9?? Just wondering. I’m really concerned about our ‘younger generation’, since they are now old enough to ‘take over’ and run our country!! No ‘self respect’, no ‘respect’ for anyone else either! Scary!!

      • Mark Plenn

        that’s why after a mass killing gets all that air some other crackpot tries to get noticed, by trying to out do the last crackpot; the liberal press is as guilty as the murderers!

    • Mark Plenn

      She should go back to Journalism 101, the 5 double uu, who, what, why, when and where? THat is news, not don’t you think da da da?

  • Donald Kilb

    Maybe she can have a talk show in South Chicago with all the other thugs and phony journalists that support them and obozo

    • Deborah Pratt

      Keeping in mind that S. Chicago now hosts large numbers of illegal Muslims and are allowing more and more ‘NO GO’ zones to exist!! Naturally they don’t want Pres Trump to continue in office!! Once he blocks their ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ from joining them–he’ll go after ‘them’!!

      • Donald Kilb

        The quicker the better!

  • Firewagon

    The obvious “Extreme Vetting” NEED, in America, is to prevent the Vitali’s, and their coterie of the world, from having ANY ability to get anywhere near a microphone, or on ANY news outlet! Anyone “brain dead” enough to believe anything these people spew have their own need, the need to have their DEPORTATION papers delivered and executed immediately….

  • Firewagon

    “Instead of having 26 dead, he would’ve had hundreds more dead.” AND, I don’t know what TX law says about going armed in church, but people should think about how much “safer” they are when their legislators legislate them out of the right to defend themselves by decreeing some area/venue a “Gun Free Zone.” They ARE NOT preventing the “killers” from coming in, however, they MAY be preventing the “anti-killers” from BEING there. Knowing somebody, or people, like this was in my congregation/gathering/building would tend to relieve much of that “sheep in the pen for slaughter” feeling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qX9xzKTY9M – A little ‘practice’ in our back yard!

    • SNUFFER

      • Firewagon

        Do we know how many rds the “anti-killer” fogged off? Two hits, one in abdomen, one in leg, maybe the “triple tap” had a miss? Maybe bring more gun? Hated phrase, bottom line remains that when a “friendly gun” arrived, the killing, other than the whack ended!!

      Those lying politicials, who whine about guns being the poroblem, have their personal body guards, who are fully armed. Only a fool would accept their premise of throwing away gun rights to encourage criminals to do the same. There are times for less physical actions to control criminals. However, when we are attacked with firearms, our best and only effective response is firearms; RETURN FIRE.

    • Mark Plenn

      If you believe that I’ve got a Bridge in Brooklyn to sell you!

  • Ali Vitali… another non person liberal fake news expert with more lip than brain. Someone fetch the Rottweilers.

  • kassa1

    She just wanted to be a bigger prostitute is Acosta who is nothing but a loser to start with. The cops, and our military and the conservative people should run these two people out of this country into Venezuela where they belong maybe they might learn a lesson with them alligator mouth’s overriding there hummingbird ass’s!

  • Gammi2Anna

    NBC=No-Body-Cares to listen to any of the MSM trolls anymore. They are blindly lead by the Liberal, Biased and in many cases, Criminal politicians that use the Media idiots to make false accusations and spread unsubstantiated information. Politicians are too cowardly to do the dirty work on their own and would never want to risk losing their cushy “career” as a politician. I remember the day when we all sat around the TV or Radio to hear the news, good or bad without the personal opinion of the reporters who believe we need them to tell us what we should think and how we should respond. It is now a sad time in this country when we cannot trust the Media to just tell us the truth and the facts, leaving it up to us to decide what we believe and how we should/could react. It is for this reason that we no longer watch the MSM Lickspittle, Inept, Antagonistic, Renegades (LIARS) or support the advertisers of their programs. We are also doing the same with the NFL. It was beginning to get somewhat difficult to find products that were not affiliated with the MSM and NFL, but the results have been felt and will continue to affect the advertising dollars that these traitors of America and our Constitution have used. Their only job is to be truthful and to honor what we love most, the USA. It has been a pleasure to watch as President Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, General John Kelly and all the others on his staff that leave the Media trolls squirming like worms on a hot rock when they try to high-jack the conversation with their controversial and biased agenda to embarrass and undermine the POTUS. Can anyone ever remember this type of behavior used while we suffered through the eight years of Obama, the worse President in the history of America?

    • Jim Hays

      Good reply. I have always switched between the NFL and NASCAR on Sundays trying to keep up with both. But no more! NASCAR only now. At the playing of the national anthem. At NASCAR everyone stands, no exceptions. Most with hand over heart, maybe singing along. Sometimes a flyover by he US air force falcon s. Full respect for our flag and country. All this and a good race too. Politics seemingly were left at home by everyone!

      • Gammi2Anna

        Thanks. We now do the same thing. We were watching college football on Saturdays, but now some of the teams and coaches are getting involved with following the NFL show of disrespect so we are eliminating them as well. My husband seldom had the opportunity to watch football due to having a job that kept him on the road traveling. After he almost died from a serious illness, his now forced retirement gave him the opportunity to watch the games. Since I have to be around most of the time, I too began to love watching the games. It has been difficult to give up this past-time, but disrespecting America, our Flag/National Anthem, Military and Law Enforcement is never excusable and will never be tolerated by the majority of Americans. I actually used money I saved up to do repairs in the kitchen, but I used it to fix up a “Man Cave’ for my husband to enjoy the games and NASCAR. Now we go down to the “cave” to watch NASCAR and Blue Bloods re-runs. Oddly, the hubby has now become a fan of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ so we are staying entertained without the NFL Lickspittles. It is good to hear how their ratings are dropping every weekend and that some advertisers are backing out as well. God Bless America!

        • Mark Plenn

          Keep boycotting the NFL!

  • Patti Luis

    Make her look and sound just ads stupid as she is little child not developed normal

  • Jmanjo

    Liberals have no couthe and surely no brains.

  • The Redhawk

    Apparently Vitali must have got a call from BSNBC HQ on which DUMBASSED QUESTION was her “DUTY” to ask to Prove that PRESSTITUTES can be Dumber than Dirt….Texas was an ISSUE of the AF Screwing up , may be she could have asked a question about TRUCKS being banned in NYC??? Or may be about the Chicago hourly shoot outs to show one SPECK of Intelligence???

  • Dan

    Sounds like a candidate for a spot on the classless harpy run view.

  • Robert Zraick

    Who can ban her? If it comes from the WH, the cries of censorship will be deafening. The only way to ban her is to have we the people ban NBC by not watching it.

    • Mark Plenn

      So, Obama wouldn’t answer questions he didn’t like, so why not keep lunk heads off Presidential flights!

  • W. Coyote

    Ali Vitali asks a very pertinent question here. After all, here is what Trump had to say about the shooting—

    “Mental health is your problem here… this was a very deranged individual, a lot of problems over a long period of time. We have a lot of mental health problems in our country…”
    The NRA has prevented any effort to do research into gun violence and the connection to mental health. The people who do “background checks” are understaffed and underfunded. Since 9/11, we have seen more deaths from homegrown mass killers than from Islamic terrorists.
    Of course Trump simply skirted the question. Keep up the good work Ali Vitali.

    • Mark Plenn

      THE PRESIDENT SAID WHAT, YOU ARE A LYING LIBERAL SON OF A PIG! You call yourself W. Coyote but you are not a fox you are a lousy LYER!

      • W. Coyote

        Mark- Good afternoon and thank you for your reply. Yes, I gave you an exact quote from Donald Trump. Of course, in February, he rolled back an effort made during the Obama Administration intended to make it harder for mentally ill people to buy firearms.
        Now, you make a big deal out of calling me a liar. If you can prove to me anything I said was a lie, I would sure like to see it.

  • Juan Carcao

    She needs to do some extreme vetting research on the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution…..didn’t someone mention there was an idiot missing from a village??

  • Jim Hays

    Best just to answer her questions with a straight forward answer as Trump did, with HIS opinion.

  • NovelDog

    Ban not only the woman, but ban the news organization for one month so they realize what their reporters do is a reflection on them and their irrelevant questions have consequences that they may not want to deal with.

    • Mark Plenn

      Y E S YES YES YES !!!!!!!

  • mojo

    As long as we conservatives sit back not expressing ourselves as strong as the liberal idiots we can expect no change in the corrupt media.
    Until conservatives demand a media that gives us equal coverage we will never get our platform to all the people giving them the real story, not fake news.

    • CBUJAN

      Watch Hannity and Laura Ingram they do a excellent job at bashing the lying media.

      • Mark Plenn

        Three time a winner!

    • Mark Plenn

      TRUE AGAIN!

  • CBUJAN

    She, like so many of her colleagues, is a lying asshole masquerading as a journalist.

    • Mark Plenn

      SO TRUE!

  • Kathryn Jordan

    Don’t know what to say about this person except she sure didn’t want to ask a question that was relavent to the topic of what President Trump was more than likely talking about. If he wasn’t talking about what had happened in Texas, why bring up gun control? That was an inappropriate question at that time.

  • Buck Stearns

    Without her talking points, she’s just another cute but clueless millennial.

  • There is a big difference between vetting foreigners and background checks. Vetting improves the odds that a dangerous person does not make it to the US. Background checks do not work.

  • rjdmanfredi

    Dr Seuss , ‘Say what you want . Those that matter don’t mind ; and those that mind , don’t matter.” I believe an opponent has got the best of you when you hare smoking mad , and have lost your temper to boot . I had to rewrite this about three or four times . Clean language , no evil wishes , the best course – let me take a blood pressure pill , and a stiff drink -is to let her rot in anonymity , preferably in the back of the room where she will neither be seen ,nor heard .

  • Pattie Kelly

    Common Sense here media use a little common sense. You will never be able to trip our President up in any question you ask him. Because first and foremost your questions stink. And require common sense which the lame strain media lacks.

  • Kenneth Dauksas

    maybe she was trying for a dumb award and she is a play reporter no brains

  • Alan404

    Seems like the woman opened her mouth, then fell into the hole her action created.

  • Patricia T.

    The Air Force, under President Obama, failed to enter him into the federal gun control database. Had they done so, Sunday’s tragedy wouldn’t have happened. Ptesident Trump had NOTHING to do with this.

    • Mark Plenn

      Obama was crimes best lawyer, he made it easy to slip between the cracks.

      • Patricia T.

        I agree.

  • Real Racer

    A Biased Dem-Lib-Socialist-Left Wing Anti-American pretending she is a real Journalist—-Just a “Fake News” Airhead Minion !

  • tes d’aless

    another airhead who wants her 15 mins of fame! Let me put it to you this way dopey – extreme vetting means to NOT ALLOW those people into this country who would do us harm! No one not the President not the Pope could do extreme vetting for guns – it would be impossible! Why you ask! bc guns are already out there, among those who LIVE here and the illegals who have come thru, thanks to obozo! Your song should be ‘IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN’

  • Mark Plenn

    The little hussie should be taken across a knee and spanked. Just another anti-gun bitch with a big mouth!

  • Brady

    again without anything concerning the reason for the trip. this person choose to try make our President look bad . Whitch it would take more then a back up to do that. This person should not be let any where near the WH or any good news source.

  • My country

    The so called press is and has always been one thing America can do without .If you know your history and there’s not many left that does .Then you know that the NYT’s was the instigator of the civil war .Just like the medias turned the thinking of American people against the people of Waco .Just like they are controlling what people must think and do today ! .As long as I can remember the so called news has destroyed decent people .Judge Roy Moore is one .Mainly because he serves God first and not man .The so called journalists are nothing but the devils advocates who never tell the truth or even gives UN – biased opinions . People can do without their lies and have managed a long time before the wicked took control to know what was going on. As in the history of any country people didn’t pop out of the ground to create a nation .They came from somewhere else .And people like this female have influenced the minds of those who are willing to go down with the destruction of our country . She simply showed that she couldn’t control herself and behaved like a spoiled child . There is no justification for any person claiming to report any kind of news .We must learn to think for ourselves and stop being lazy and taking every word of people like this females opinions for the gospel facts .

  • Randi Amundsen

    This is what the colleges turn out to day a bunch of idiot that has no idea what it mean to have respect for anyone nor do these so called reporters have any common sense

  • vinny

    If his criminal record was posted when that NIGGER was in their he wouldn’t of been able to purchase any arms.

  • Phoenix

    How in the world, can WE, American’s, STOP this insane hate against our President? All, because “their gal’, who promised them FREE EVERYTHING, did NOT win! WHERE did all these younger “people”, (I think), EVER believe, they could scoot, the rest of their lives, on her “tit”?

  • krishna shrivastava

    Is it Ali Vitali’s journalistic training or upbringing that resulted in her mental lapse in knowing that there is an appropriate place and time for everything. At least, when abroad, the PRESS (both Main Stream Media and others) should have the decency to respect the Office of the President of the United States and play a supporting role. IS THAT ASKING TP MUCH FROM YOU MORONS. Adversarial role should only be played at home, although if the PRESS is biased it loses its credibility as also that of the Press Person, if there is any credibility left. GROW UP or go and CRY ON YOUR MOMMY’s SHOULDER.

  • General Patton

    Ali will be doing Little League Baseball in the spring——–libtard

  • Richard Schmidt

    Another illustration of the hostility of the media. A pervasively hostile attitude which has succeeded only in decreasing respect for national news agencies.
