CNN’s Jake Tapper really wanted California Governor Gavin Newsom to trash President Trump on Wednesday during his interview on the Coronavirus pandemic.
But Newsom praised President Trump’s swift action and willingness to help the governor.
In fact, Newsom said every time he has called Trump, he’s gotten on the line very quickly.
Jake Tapper trashed Trump in his question to Newsom in an effort to make the President look like a tyrant.
To Tapper’s disappointment, Newsom didn’t bite.
“Let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that he hasn’t been responsive to our needs, he has,” Newsom said.
“The fact is every time I’ve called the President he’s quickly gotten on the line,” he added.
The look of disappointment on Jake Tapper’s face said it all.
Great to hear! CA’s Gov Newsom about @realDonaldTrump
“Let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that he hasn’t been responsive to our needs, he has."
