Politico Chief Washington correspondent moron Ryan Lizza caught some intense backlash on Monday for questioning whether President Trump believed that the defeat of the Confederacy in the Civil War was a “good thing.”
This was one of those knucklehead setup questions that the journalist could brag about when the White House press corps is hanging out after hours drinking their cosmopolitans and frozen daiquiris. Yeah, he really got Trump with that one.
Conservatives despised President Obama, but if he walked into the room, I would have stood up, out of respect for the office of the president. Fake News reporters do not respect the office of the president. It doesn’t matter that it’s Trump and they hate his guts. Asking an absurd question like that shows Lizza has no respect for the office of the president. He’s not a real journalist. He is an activist posing as one.
During the White House press briefing on Monday, Lizza asked Kayleigh McEnany, the White House Press Secretary, about the president’s stance on the removal of monuments to the Confederacy. The issue of toppling statues has become part of the national debate over racism following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody last month, but asking if the president believes the south should have won the Civil War just makes Lizza a jerk.
Does Lizza side with vandals who have defaced and toppled public property? Does he think if they don’t like some other asinine story he covers they have the right to chop down a tree outside his house? Or does he just want to become the next Jim Acosta, with everyone in the press pool hating him?
The question was designed to pile on to the Trump’s a racist narrative, and Lizza is despicable for asking it.
Trump has openly argued against the toppling of such statues as part of preserving the nation’s historical past and culture.
“I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is … so a couple of questions,” Lizza began. “One, does he believe- does President Trump believe — that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War? And then two, does he believe in following NASCAR’s example in banning the Confederate flag from his own events?”
McEnany immediately told this creep that his first question was “absolutely absurd,” and emphasized that the president is “proud of the United States of America.” She then mentioned recent polling that reveals a majority of Americans oppose the removal of Confederate statues.
Twitter users were quick to criticize such a question.
Eric Trump reacted to Lissa’s question:
“What an absolutely disgusting question by @RyanLizza of @Politico”
