Donald Trump referred to journalists reporting on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic as "dumb bastards" during a campaign rally in Arizona on Monday.
"They're getting tired of the pandemic, aren't they? Getting tired of the pandemic. You turn on CNN, that's all they cover," said Trump, pointing to the press at the back of the crowd. "You know why? They're trying to talk everybody out of voting. People aren't buying it, CNN, you dumb bastards. They're not buying it."
