Fox News reports former National Security Adviser Susan Rice suggested Monday that President Trump’s recent confrontation with a black female reporter displayed his dislike for strong women in general and black women in particular.
During Sunday’s White House coronavirus task force briefing, the president told PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor to “be nice” and to not be “threatening” in response to a question about Trump’s claim that state governors were requesting supplies to fight the coronavirus pandemic that they didn’t actually need.
“You go, girl,” Rice tweeted at Alcindor. “Pathetic when insecure men can’t stomach strong black women.”

“I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job” Alcindor tweeted Sunday. “My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.”
Per TCO, Rice was referring to President Trump’s explosive exchange with PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor.
Alcindor claimed Trump said that equipment governors are requesting they don’t actually need. Trump denied he said that then said “Why don’t you act a little more positive…it’s always getcha getcha…that’s why nobody trusts the media anymore.”
