Andrew Pollack, father of Parkland victim Meadow Pollack defended President Trump after his contentious exchange with NBC reporter Peter Alexander.

Pollack tweeted “NBC reporter  @PeterAlexander got exactly what he deserved A Presidential Beat Down Maybe next time this fool shouldn’t try to be the next Jim Acosta!”

Journalists should never become the news. And yet, here we are. Peter Alexander is the top trending topic because he wouldn’t stop asking Trump dumb questions.

Meanwhile, other reporters rushed to defend Jackson on Twitter, including April Ryan.

Jackson spoke out on NBC after being berated by President Trump as a “terrible reporter.”

Peter Jackson:

I was trying to provide the president an opportunity to reassure the millions of Americans, members of my own family … and plenty of people sitting at home right now – this was his opportunity to do that, to provide a sort of positive or uplifting message.

Moments earlier, Alexander was ripped by Trump for suggesting he was giving Americans “false sense of hope” to Americans and to “put a positive spin on things.”

Peter Alexander:

Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things may be giving Americans a false sense of hope and misrepresenting preparedness right now?

President Trump:

No I don’ think so….Such a lovely question. Look, i agree with the doctor with what he said. it may work and it may not work. I feel good about it. that’s all it is, just a feeling….it’s been out there for over 20 years…. I sure the hell think we ought to give it a try. 

Peter Alexander:

What do you see Americans who are watching you right now that are scared though I guess. Nearly 200 dead. 14,000 who are sick. Millions as you witnessed who are scared right now. What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?

President Trump:

I say that you are a terrible reporter. I think that’s a very nasty question, and I think it’s a very bad signal that you’re putting out to the American people.
