CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins was raked over the coals after posting a smug attempt to criticize President Trump.
Collins set off a wave of backlash on social media where she was called out for hypocrisy, arrogance and generally proving, once again, how base and petty the liberal media can be. The CNN reporter posted a selfie photo of herself wearing a protective face mask, and backed by others in the “crew” at the White House seeking accolades for just doing their jobs.
“The crew that got President Trump to answer his first questions in over three weeks,” Collins wrote in the caption with her photo shared on Twitter on Thanksgiving evening.
“Proud to be part of it. Happy Thanksgiving!” she added in the tweet which apparently referred to the Q&A reporters had with the president Thursday after he spoke with U.S. military leaders overseas.

If Collins thought “the crew” would be praised for their heroic reporting, she was greatly mistaken.
“So brave. Just like Normandy,” conservative commentator and writer Jeremy Frankel tweeted.
“Narcissism to a T, as exhibited by our esteemed White House press corps,” Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck wrote on Twitter.
I see a bunch of smug, self-important pricks whom the majority of America can’t stand.

“From an optics perspective in terms of an argument around objectivity, this wasn’t a good idea,” The Hill columnist Joe Concha tweeted.
They literally think they are heroes.

“Sadly, this is the highlight of her journalism career,” author and radio host Todd Starnes tweeted.
“Also the crew that let Joe Biden not answer a single difficult question the entire campaign. You have nothing to be proud of, Kaitlan. You’re not a journalist, you’re an activist,” Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis wrote.
Many Twitter users wondered if Democrat Joe Biden would continue to get a pass from the same liberal media.
“Where is the photo of the crew that can get Joe Biden to answer one?” Spectator’s Stephen Miller asked.
“Too bad the Biden press pool hardly ever does this…,” former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer noted.
Obama went 6 months without holding a presser in the midst of the financial crisis and pushing through single biggest bill in American history (Obamacare) in mid-2009 to early 2010.
Trump gave daily 3-hour stream of consciousness press conferences at the height of COVID. 😑 https://t.co/3qLuDLWiSy

Same crowd that isn’t going to ask Biden a serious question for the next 4 years #bravefirefighters

And if Collins didn’t get enough heat for the arrogance of the group of reporters, the fact that they were crowded together for a photo while their Democrat leaders were screeching about social distancing and cancelling Thanksgiving Day travel made the post even more worthy of the mockery.
This Thanksgiving celebration is banned in multiple states by edict of their governors.

Trump advocate and retired U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, Jessie Jane Duff, gave Collins one more brutal trip to the woodshed.
Watch how in 2016 @kaitlancollins actually reported on Democrats' political corruption & influence.
But since 2016, we never hear a peep on Democrats corruption from her.
Laughable Ms. Collins became outraged when called an activist by the White House Press Secretary last week. https://t.co/SFvEW9l4mZ

The outrage at CNN when she was called an activist was ridiculous. All her coworkers rushed to her defense on Twitter and attacked Kayleigh for stating what we all see.
The “reporters” at CNN do not hide that they despise this President yet try appear offended when called out.🙄
