PBS Reporter Tangles With Trump – Gets Backlash

Taxpayer-funded PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor, who recently said there was “no evidence” for President Trump’s claim that anarchists were involved in the violent riots that took place across the nation (despite massive evidence to the contrary) is in hot water again.

This time for ignoring the economic significance of Friday’s surprisingly good job numbers and instead focusing on only a racial aspect that fits her radical socialist narrative.

As we have asked before in this space, who is paying for her to spread bigotry, ignorance, and to lie about the president? You are.

During the Friday press conference, Alcindor attempted to ask the president questions as he was signing a bill that lifted Paycheck Protection Program restrictions. “Mr. President, why don’t you have a plan to address systemic racism?” Alcindor asked.

Her question had nothing to do with the subject at hand and her premise, that there is systemic racism in America, is a false one.

Trump justifiably ignored her bait but spoke to the larger issue: “By the way, what’s happened to our country — and what you now see is the greatest thing that could happen for race relations, for the African-American community, for the Asian-American, for Hispanic-American community, for women, for everything.” Then Alcindor went back to her script.

“What is your plan,” she said as she interrupted the president.

“And our country is so strong, that’s what my plan is,” the president said, referencing her question. “We have the strongest economy in the world…we had the strongest economy anywhere in the world and now we’re gonna have an economy that’s even stronger.”

Alcindor responded, “Black unemployment went up .1 percent… How is that a victory?”

“You are something,” Trump shot back. And there, right there, is the crux of her racism. To Alcindor and those like her, America as a whole does not matter. What matters are their own narrow parochial interests. Not to mention .1% could be merely a statistical anomaly.

If we turned this around and we heard a reporter obsessing on unemployment numbers for America’s white population, eyebrows would be raised and the scent of bigotry would pervade the air. But a PBS reporter can do the same thing and certain quarters will praise her.

This showcases the racism that runs through the heart of the Left.

Non-delusional members of the press were not kind to Alcindor: “I can’t speak for everyone, but I think most people are happy because the prediction was 20% unemployment and we actually got a small reduction, to 13.3% from 14.7%, along with 2.5m new jobs, and because this is much, much better than the alternative,” said National Review editor Charles C.W. Cooke.

A side note: National Review may be regaining its bearings after a medium term anti-Trump crusade. It would be a welcome comeback for what used to be the best conservative journal in the world.

“No. It wasn’t, [a crucial question]” The Post Millenial staff writer Chad Felix tweeted to Alcindor. “It was intentionally obtuse designed to validate your pet narrative, and apparent sole purpose as a ‘journalist.’

You know very well that this kind of micro-breakdown is meaningless and only serves to perpetuate hatred. You *want* to find something. Always.” We can expect more racist idiocy from Yamiche Alcindor. It is her stock-in-trade as a reporter.

  • Trump says to her "You're really something"...[that we couldn't fit through the door if we tried.] I am so tired of her stupid questions aimed at disarming the POTUS with her singular interests.

  • I thought I saw Alcindor breaking into a Golden Corral in D.C. She attacked the buffet and then complained of racism because the buffet ran out of cornbread.

  • Any white reporter demonstrating the colossal ignorance this particular black woman
    reporter does (and many other black "activists" as well) would be laughed at and
    then ignored as completely irrelevant, but because everyone is walking on proverbial
    eggs when dealing with black reporters, etc., ignorant radicals actually keep their
    jobs at taxpayers' expense. This obsession with race that continues to cover up
    real issues has become totally insane. One brutal cop (who should have been
    ousted from the police force years ago after multiple complaints about his
    violent nature) kills a black thug, while said thug is in the act of looting and
    being a "protester," and immediately all police officers are accused of being
    brutal. The vast majority of police officers are courageous and show incredible
    patience in dealing with the criminal element. Minneapolis' decision to oust
    an entire police force is beyond insane, and plain stupid. Clearly, the inmates
    are running the asylum in this case.

  • MLK must be turning over in his grave, seeing violent groups like Black
    Lives Matter claiming to represent all black people in their lawless way
    of "protesting." These riots have nothing to do with racial injustice and everything to do with common thugs stealing and destroying to get
    anything they can lay hands on for "free."
