CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang, on Friday, confronted President Donald Trump regarding his outlandish claims about the outcome of the presidential election.
In most cases, the noteworthy actions typically occur at the end of the White House press briefings when reporters have the opportunity to confront members of the Trump administration on their shortcomings. Friday was no different as Trump and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany faced heightened criticism while abruptly exiting the White House press room.
Before Trump exited, Jiang asked if the president was “being a sore loser” since President-elect Joe Biden was declared the winner. “Mr. President, are you being a sore loser?” Jiang shouted before adding, “Are you being a sore loser?”
Although Trump did not answer Jiang directly, he has repeatedly reacted to the election outcome in true Trump fashion as he has claimed he won the election.
Jiang’s remarks came as the state of Georgia certified the results of its voter recount in which Biden was declared the winner of the state. Despite repeated efforts put forth by the Trump campaign’s legal team, they have not managed to provide substantial evidence to prove widespread voter fraud in any state.
Although its been two weeks since Biden was declared the President-elect of the United States, Trump and his administration are still refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. In fact, many of his supporters still believe he will be inaugurated for a second term on January 20, 2021. Trump’s delusional outlook on the weeks to come have raised questions about his ability to see the election outcome objectively. However, his actions are the reason Jiang posed the question she did.
Here was what the White House Briefing Room sounded like as President Trump and other administration officials left without taking questions.

Bootlicker’ Marco Rubio smacked down for attacking Biden’s cabinet picks as ‘caretakers of America’s decline’
'So much racism'
Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio suggested he will vote against all of the cabinet picks President-elect Joe Biden announced on Monday. The Florida Republican, an expected 2024 presidential hopeful, appeared especially disturbed by the educational backgrounds, and some are saying the racial and ethnic backgrounds, of Biden's diverse and experienced team.
"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline," Rubio tweeted (lack of proper spacing and punctuation are original to his tweet.) "I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the 'normal' that left us dependent on China"
Fox News pundit gets shut down for saying she’s ‘not impressed’ by diversity in Biden’s cabinet
Fox News contributor Richard Fowler shut down conservative pundit Rachel Campos-Duffy on Tuesday after she said that Americans are "not impressed" by the diversity in President-elect Joe Biden's incoming administration.
"You can have a problem with the ideology of many of these individuals that Joe Biden has selected," Fowler explained during a segment on Fox News. "But you cannot question their qualifications and their abilities to do this job."
"Let's just think about this for a minute," he continued. "No matter what party you're in, you have to acknowledge that the Biden campaign and the Biden transition team is really looking forward facing. For the first time in American history, we'll have a woman vice president, we'll have a woman running national intelligence, we'll have an African-American woman at the U.N., we'll have a Latino man running Homeland Security. This is what America looks like."
