Soledad O’Brien teaches reporters a lesson in how journalists should handle Trump

Veteran journalist Soledad O’Brien spoke up on Friday after a reporter made a rookie error at the White House by asking President Donald Trump two questions instead of asking just one to get a straight answer.

Trump is a known liar who often gets away with lying because reporters aren’t asking the right questions or they are asking them in the wrong way.

For instance, Trump has recently been attacking former Vice-President Joe Biden, accusing him of sexual assault even though Trump has been accused of that very crime by over 20 women.

Biden allegedly made women uncomfortable by touching them during public events, which they claim is inappropriate although none of the accusers said anything at the time while he was in office. However, the touches did not rise to the level of sexual assault.

While answering questions on the White House lawn on Friday, one reporter asked Trump a dual question and basically gave him the option to pick which question he wanted to answer.

“What exactly is offensive about Joe Biden’s behavior, and are you the right messenger for that?” the reporter asked.

“Yeah, I think I’m a very good messenger,” Trump replied.

Here’s the video via Twitter.

Do you see how easily Trump was able to evade the first part of the reporter’s question?

Soledad O’Brien sure did, which is why she took it upon herself to give a quick pro-tip to reporters.

Indeed, all Trump did is brag about himself by claiming to be a “good messenger” and he totally ignored the first question, which was far more important.

O’Brien would go on to advise reporters on how to ask Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) a question about his tax returns, which he has yet to release.

Clearly, journalists could learn a thing or two from O’Brien, who has been honing her craft for decades. Perhaps she should be a White House reporter so we can finally get some straight answers from Trump from a person who has no fear asking the tough questions.
