We all know the media is biased against President Trump. We’ve gone from liberal media bias to outright opposition media. With the Supreme Court nomination fight over Judge Brett Kavanaugh, some of the clashes between the president and press have been tense. For CBS News White House Correspondent Weijia Jiang, she decided to make herself the story when she confronted the president over his defense of his nominee concerning his allegations of sexual misconduct. She weaponized her pregnancy announcement to take a swipe at Trump:
“Personal news: She made a very public debut during this presser, so it’s a good time to share my husband and I are thrilled to meet our baby girl in January! Can’t wait to teach her when a man orders you to “sit down” because he doesn’t like what you’re saying, do anything but,” she wrote on Twitter.
Trump had told her to sit down at a United Nations presser when she tried to ask him about whether his past allegations were an influence in this nomination fight (via The Hill):

CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang on Monday announced via Twitter that she is pregnant, and in doing so took an apparent jab at President Trump.
Trump told Jiang to "sit down" after she repeatedly tried to ask him about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Jiang asked if the sexual allegations against the president have influenced his opinions of the accusations against Kavanaugh.
She remained standing until Trump eventually answered her question.
"It does impact my opinion because I've had a lot of false charges made against me," Trump said. "I'm a very famous person, unfortunately. I've been a famous person for a long time."

“Apparent” of course this was a jab at Trump. This president has been fighting these folks since day one of his presidency, and despite their hostility, will hold press conference and will take their questions, whilst delivering counterpunches of his own. Despite his divergence on GOP orthodoxy concerning policy, like tariffs, he fights back. After years of GOP taking the so-called high road, it was time to get into the gutter with the Democrats and deliver punishment of our own. Only Trump was able to do it. Also, we’re using pregnancy announcements to bash the president? They’re just throwing anything they can find aren’t they folks. Sad!
