Trump Calls Reporter Cutie Pie – Jonathan Karl Trump
On Friday, March 27, 2020 during the White House press conference regarding the Coronavirus response president Trump told Karl to not “be a cutie pie.”
This was after Karl asked Trump what he could do to assure “these states, these hospitals, that everybody who needs a ventilator will get a ventilator.”
The president responded, “So here is what I will tell you. I think we are in really good shape. This is a pandemic the likes of which nobody has seen before. I think we are in great shape. I think the number one we have distributed–a ventilator is a big deal. We have distributed vast numbers of ventilators and we are prepared to do vast numbers. I think we are in great shape. I hope that is the case. I hope that we are going to have left over so that we can help other people, other countries.”
Karl added; “But everybody who needs one will be able to get a ventilator?”
The president responded by telling him not to be a cute pie; “Look, look, don’t be a cutie pie, okay? Everyone who needs one–nobody has ever done what we have done, nobody has done anything like we have been able to do and everything I took over was a mess. It was a broken country in so many ways, in so many ways other than this. We had a bad testing system. We had a bad stockpile system, we had nothing in the stockpile system so I wouldn’t tell me what you are telling–you know like being a wise guy. Go ahead.”

One of the things I enjoyed most about writing my book (out in five days!) was compiling the photo section. Today Axios published this vintage photo from my book (taken in 1994 by Francis Specker) next to a photo taken this week by Doug Mills. When the first picture was taken, I could never have imagined the second photo could have been possible 26 years later. The book, in part, is the incredible story of how that happened.
