This is the Trump we all know and love, isn’t it?
ABC’s Jon Karl got into a bit of a spat in the Oval Office today. Karl asked Trump if he would “just sign” something already to open the government so government workers can get their paychecks. Screw the wall.
Trump turned the tables on him.
“Is that what you would do, Jon?” he asked.
“Jon, do you think I should just sign?” he continued. “If you would do that, you should never be in this position. Because you’d never get anything done.”

When I asked the President if he would sign spending bills unrelated to the border wall, he repeatedly demanded to know if that is what I would do. It may be tempting to answer such a question, but that is not my job. pic.twitter.com/8HxsSep5eV

Perhaps I’m in the minority, but I like how Trump handled that. Reporters constantly try to tell Trump how to do his job, so bam! There’s your chance, Jon. Tell him what to do, since that’s basically what you already do anyway. Wanna be a know-it-all? GO FOR IT JON.
