The current president of the United States has probably the thinnest skin of any president in the history of the nation, and he is not afraid to put his insecurities right out on front-street, essentially making a fool of himself every single time he goes on camera or the internet.
Today is no different either, as Trump attacked veteran journalist and mortal enemy Jim Acosta, who works for CNN. It happened at Friday’s coronavirus briefing. Check out the awkward incident:

According to CNN:
President Donald Trump said Friday his administration was now recommending Americans wear “non-medical cloth” face coverings, a reversal of previous guidance that suggested masks were unnecessary for people who weren’t sick.Trump said the recommendations, which came after a week of heated deliberations inside the White House, were voluntary and that he would not partake.“I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,” he said, going on to suggest it was hard to envision such a thing in the Oval Office: “Wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens — I just don’t see it.”
