I just happened to tune in on the Trumper’s speech this morning when he mentioned “the Chinese virus.” A reporter called him out on his use of “Chinese” as being racist. He denied that it was a racist remark. I detest watching him during his press conferences, especially when he is not speaking, but has to step back and give the podium to one of his advisers. He looks like a bratty kid with shifty eyes, who wants to be the center of attention. He was starting to get rattled by some of the questions and wanted to stomp off the stage. Some of his advisers stepped in to respond, and I’m sure he didn’t like that.
