Yahoo News reporter Hunter Walker was mocked after trolling President Trump as he boarded Marine One after being treated at the Walter Reed Military Hospital. Trump appears to be doing well after testing positive for COVID. Trump’s rapid recovery caused many on the left to have Twitter meltdowns.
Walker bragged on Twitter: “I asked President Trump how many of his staffers are sick and whether he is ‘a superspreader.’ He ignored me and simply said, ‘Thank you very much, everybody.'”
The White House had alerted the press pool before President Trump left the hospital that he would not take any questions.
Nevertheless, Walker shouted a question at Trump in an apparent bid to score Twitter brownie points.

Do you think you might be a #SuperSpreader, Mr. President?”

Many reacted to Walker’s insult masquerading as a question by slamming him as desperate and thirsty.
“Journalism today is yelling a question at the President, getting ignored, and then tweeting about it as if you’ve accomplished something. Every last one of them fighting for Twitter retweets over an unanswered, ridiculous question.”
“I asked whether you’re a super-duper communist douchebag, and you ignored me. But everyone else was like, “thank you very much for pointing it out.”

This is not the first time that Hunter Walker has humiliated himself while trying to dunk on Trump.
In April, Walker apologized to Trump after being scolded for reporting fake news about the coronavirus during an Oval Office press briefing.
Walker falsely claimed: “Overall, South Korea has done five times more tests than the U.S. per capita. Why is that?”
Trump retorted: “I don’t think that’s true.”
Walker insisted: “That is true.”
Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, corrected Walker’s fake news.
Dr. Birx replied: “South Korea’s testing was 11 per 100,000 [citizens]. And we are at 17 per 100,000.”
President Trump remarked: “Are you going to apologize, Yahoo? That’s why you’re Yahoo and nobody knows who the hell you are. You ought to get your facts right.”

Walker later apologized on Twitter for spreading lies, writing: “In the Oval Office, I asked about test rates and infection rates compared to South Korea. President Trump and Dr. Birx said I was wrong that they’ve done more tests per capita. We have passed South Korea in the number of tests conducted per capita. I misread the mobile version of this chart and am sorry about that, President Trump.”
Walker then deleted the apology after being mocked for his failed attempt to attack Trump.
Meanwhile, President Trump ignited a torrent of left-wing meltdowns with his apparent speedy recovery.
While Trump will be repeatedly tested to ensure that he has beaten the virus, his robust, healthy appearance fueled anger on the Left.
As BizPac Review reported, many leftists gleefully wished death on the President when he announced he had tested positive.
After returning to the White House last night, President Trump posted a video urging Americans to take proper precautions against COVID. However, he underscored that they should not live in fear:
“One thing that’s for certain, don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it. We have the best medical equipment. We have the best medicines all developed recently, and you’re going to beat it.
I didn’t feel so good [last week]. And two days ago [I checked into the hospital]. I could have left two days ago. Two days ago, I felt great. Better than I have in a long time…better than 20 years ago. Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t let that happen.”
President Trump continued: “We have the greatest country in the world. We’re going back. We’re going back to work. We’re going to be out front. As your leader, I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it, but I had to do it. I stood out front. I led. Nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did. And I know there’s a risk. There’s a danger. But that’s okay, and now I’m better. Maybe I’m immune. I don’t know.”
He underscored: “But don’t let [fear and hysteria] dominate your lives. Get out there. Be careful. We have the best medicines in the world. The vaccines are coming momentarily. Thank you very much.”
