11 days ago   |   By Mediaite

ABC News' Jon Karl directly confronted President Donald Trump over the Bob Woodward tape by asking him, “Why did you lie to the American people and why should we trust what you have to say now?”
“Such a terrible question,” Trump said, before reiterating that he didn't want to spread panic. “Your question, the way you phrased that is such a disgrace. It's a disgrace to ABC television network, it's a disgrace to your employer.”
Karl spoke Sunday with CNN's Brian Stelter , who opened by asking about his pretty blunt question.
“I've resisted using that word for five years of covering Donald...

The most serious revelation from Woodward's book so far is President Donald Trump on tape being candid about wanting to downplay the coronavirus early on, saying it's worst than the flu weeks before making very different comments publicly.
In a preview released Sunday morning, Scott Pelley asked Woodward, “Did the president ever disclose to you why he wasn't telling the public what the stakes where with the coronavirus?”
Woodward reviewed that discussion he had with the president...
