While President Donald Trump was in Poland strengthening ties between the two nations and vowing to stand up to Russian thuggery, he held a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
During the press conference, Trump called on NBC White House correspondent Hallie Jackson (why he would do that to himself remains a mystery). After asking Trump about Russian hacking into the 2016 election, she continued to pester him with questions.
“Will you once and for all, yes or no, definitively say that Russia interfered in the 2016 election?” Jackson asked Trump.
“Well I think it was Russia, and I think it could have been other people in other countries,” Trump responded.
Trump then noted that President Barack Obama did nothing to stop Russia when it became clear the country was interfering. Rather than accept Trump’s answer, Jackson continued to fire off questions at him — despite the fact that officials had been clear that each reporter was only allowed to ask two.
When Jackson kept on talking after being told that she was finished, Polish authorities quickly shut her down with three words.
“You must go,” they said.
“Dear lady, two questions. Two questions. Dear lady. Thank you very much, thank you very much, you must go. You must go. Dear lady, thank you very much,” said an unidentified voice.
After that exchange, the press conference was ended. Trump and Duda shook hands again and left the room.
You can watch the back and forth here:
Press conferences that are held with foreign leaders aren’t meant to drag on for hours so that the media can bombard the leaders with questions. They are a formality to show the unity between two nations.
Jackson was so intent on trying to ambush Trump with her questions to make a name for herself that all she did was end up getting slammed by Polish authorities and looking very foolish.
Maybe before the next press conference Jackson should go back to school and learn how to count, since clearly she’s forgotten how many “two” is.
