Journalist feels raging backlash from all over after criticizing Trump’s USA hat worn at presser

They just don’t get it, and at this rate they never will …

A few hours before CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter got bashed for claiming the media’s incessant attacks on President Donald Trump are rooted in them merely trying to hold him “accountable,” one of his peers in the mainstream press accidentally proved just how full of Schiff this excuse happens to be.

As the president addressed the coronavirus crisis during a White House briefing Saturday afternoon, Los Angeles Times White House reporter Chris Megerian took to Twitter to hold the president accountable for … wait for it … the hat he was wearing.

No joke.



The tweet wound up attracting over 20,000 replies, most of them scathing rebukes of his attempt to hold the president accountable for a hat.

Quite a few critics also called attention to the rank (and never-ending) hypocrisy of the media, which only years earlier had celebrated any and all gear related to then-President Barack Hussein Obama, even going so far as to advertise some items.

Again, no joke!

Now check out the raging backlash below:

The irony is that Megerian had joined Stelter in defending the media from the criticism of Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who’d pleaded with reporters during the White House briefing to tone down their #OrangeManBad narrative and focus instead on educating the public about the coronavirus.

“We really need you all to lean into and prioritize the health and safety of the American people. No more bickering, no more partisanship, no more criticism or finger-pointing. There’ll be plenty of time for that,” he’d said.

“But we all need to hit the reset button and lean into moving forward the health and safety of the American people as their top priority. More stories on how people can protect themselves, more people on — or how people can get the resources that they need that we’ve unleashed from the federal government and state and local governments. Less stories looking at what happened in the past. Again, there’ll be time for that.”

In response, both Megerian and Stelter pounced:

Come again?

Once again Megerian got hit with backlash — lots of it too.
