An ABC News reporter went berserk in an Oval Office press conference this afternoon asking President Donald J. Trump for a comment about late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
“Mr. President, any thoughts on John McCain?” asked Jon Karl several times at press conference about NAFTA and America’s new trade deal with Mexico.
Taking a page out of the playbook of CNN’s Jim Acosta, Karl annoyingly repeated forms of the same question 10 times. ABC proudly displayed Karl’s embarrassing theatrics on its Twitter account.
“Why won’t you say anything about John McCain?”
@jonkarl asked Pres. Trump ten times today to comment on Senator John McCain, who passed away this weekend at age 81. The president did not respond,” ABC’s Tweet said, with an accompanying video.

But Trump has already made public comments about the death of the turncoat Senator from Arizona. He Tweeted his condolences within an hour of McCain’s death.
“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!” Trump said on Saturday.
My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!

Trump and McCain shared a history of bad blood, with Trump criticizing McCain’s POW status in the Vietnam war, and McCain subsequently casting the deciding vote to keep Obamacare in place, though he railed against Obamacare publicly.
Once again, Trump refused to cave to the mainstream press which is only pretending to like McCain in order to score political points against Trump. The same people hated McCain when he ran for president in 2008.
Just another day for the enemies of the American people.
