Of course not. Softball city. And after 8 years of playing softball with Hillary and Barack Obama, the press in the Washington Post staff is so out of practice in asking tough questions that when it finally has a target to hit approved by Jeff Bezos, the reporters cannot pull it off. They choke. They go full douche.
This happened on Friday. The big nontroversy that day was Trump in 1991 pretended to be his own spokesman named John Miller,
From the Washington Post:
Washington Post reporters who were 44 minutes into a phone interview with Trump about his finances asked him a question about Miller: “Did you ever employ someone named John Miller as a spokesperson?”
The phone went silent, then dead. When the reporters called back and reached Trump’s secretary, she said, “I heard you got disconnected. He can’t take the call now. I don’t know what happened.”44 minutes.
Let's put that in perspective. A television interview of 44 minutes uninterrupted would take about an hour to air, what with intros and all.
What douche nozzles.
Yes, they may have asked the question hoping he would hang up. But it is rather childish.
