(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor admitted that the mainstream press works together in their effort to oppose President Donald Trump.

“We know that covering President Trump sometimes is like a team sport,” she told MSNBC. “We have to have each other’s back in the press corps. So I appreciate that.”

Alcindor had a brief altercation with the president during a Sunday press briefing, after she asked a “negative” and “threatening” question that attempted to pin responsibility on Trump for the initial lag in Wuhan virus testing.

“Why don’t you act a little more positive?” Trump responded. “It’s always get ya, get ya, get ya. You know what? That’s why nobody trusts the media anymore. Look, let me tell you something. Be nice. Don’t be threatening.”

Within moments of the exchange, dozens of leftists and mainstream journalists rallied behind Alcindor:


The Washington Post even published an opinion column claiming Alcindor has been “abused” on national television—managing, in the process, to deploy the gender and race cards without evidence.

“Though Trump is a blabbermouth, he managed to bundle a sexist and racist jab in the span of five words,” wrote Post columnist Erik Wemple.

“‘Be nice. Don’t be threatening’—those admonitions play off expectations of how women should behave toward men and stereotypes of black people, respectively,” Wemple claimed.

Alcindor similarly suggested she had been the victim of veiled racism and sexism:

In her follow-up interview with MSNBC, Alcindor claimed she was just trying to “hold [Trump] accountable” and thanked the other members of the press who “had my back.”
