Trump did take questions on Friday in a session that included some tense exchanges with the media. When PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor asked about the White House shutting down its pandemic office in 2018, Trump slammed it as a “nasty question.”
In another instance, Kristen Welker of NBC News asked if Trump, who repeatedly has tried to downplay the pandemic, took responsibility for the delays in testing patients.
“I don’t take responsibility at all,” he said.
“I feel rage,” he told Esquire in 2017. “I feel fury. It’s unbelievable.”
Evans said he wasn’t concerned if his views alienated some of his fans.
“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets,” he told the magazine. “But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up.”
And if that meant some of those tickets didn’t get sold?
“I’m okay with that,” Evans said.
