Trump Campaign Exposes Hypocrite CNN Reporter Who Complained President Took Mask Off
Kaitlan Collins gets torched on Twitter for hypocrisy
CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins complained President Donald Trump took his mask off upon returning to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday, only for her past actions to be exposed by the Trump campaign.
“Yeah and let us remind viewers now that the president is on steroids and a drug that fewer than 10 people outside of clinical trials have gotten inside the United States to deal with coronavirus,” Collins said.
“He had a level of treatment and a level of care that most Americans would not get. That’s understandable; he is the president of, the United States, obviously, everyone expects that.”
“But what the president is portraying by taking his mask off when he gets back to the Truman balcony to give this grand return to the White House, is that everything is fine and, as he said, don’t let coronavirus control your life,” Collins added.
“But that is very much still a president who has coronavirus,” Collins claimed.
“Despite the lights and the flags and the staged entrance that the president wants to create, he still has coronavirus, and he is only a few days into the diagnosis," she said.
"And Erin today his doctor didn’t reveal a lot of information as he hasn’t for the past two days, but he did still say that he will not breathe a sigh of relief until Monday. That’s a full week from today.”
Collins tweeted with a video clip with the caption:
“Only days into his diagnosis, the first thing President Trump does when he gets back to the White House is take his mask off.”

But the Trump campaign responded by digging out a video clip from earlier this year where she promptly took off her mask inside the White House press briefing room, an enclosed indoor space where other people were present.
It was apparent that Collins thought the cameras had stopped rolling at the end of the news conference.
The campaign tweeted:
“CNN reporters like Kaitlin Collins obsess over masks when the cameras are on, but when they think they’re off, off comes their masks!”

Collins also faced backlash on Twitter, here are a few responses:
Actress Kirstie Alley tweeted:
"What would you like him to do? Start crying like a little bitch so you can report that he’s ...crying like a little bitch? He could have a hazmat suit on, and you would report ... he’s a fucking lunatic in a hazmat suit. You hate him. Just report that."

Political commentator and author Dan Bongino tweeted:
"Is Kaitlyn literally shaking?? She trails only Acosta in the Desperation Olympics."
Trump released a video statement upon returning to the White House, encouraging people not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives.
“I just left Walter Reed Medical Center, and it’s really something very special—the doctors, the nurses, the first responders—and I learned so much about coronavirus,” Trump said.
“And one thing that’s for certain, don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re gonna beat it. We have the best medical equipment; we have the best medicines—all developed recently—and you’re gonna beat it.”
“We’re the greatest country in the world,” Trump continued.
“We’re going back, we’re going back to work, we’re gonna 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 and maybe I’m immune, I don’t know.”
“But don’t let it dominate your lives,” Trump concluded.
“Get out there, be careful. We have the best medicines in the world, and it all happened very shortly, and they’re all getting approved, and the vaccines are coming momentarily. Thank you very much—and Walter Reed, what a group of people. Thank you very much.”
