CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins is already two years into covering the Biden Administration and had previously covered the Trump Administration. So naturally, she knows the differences and similarities between the two men and their cabinet. 

During her appearance on CNN+’s “The Interview Club,” Collins was asked the difference between covering former President Donald Trump’s White House and President Joe Biden. 

Collins began her response by first noting how both men are very different, but despite the differences, some similarities are that both men very busy. 

“They’re very different because, of course, the two presidents are very different, and that is something I think either of them would tell you. What I would say that’s not that different is it’s still incredibly busy. It may not be as quite as busy during the Biden administration as it was during Trump,” Collins said, per Mediaite.

Furthermore, she went into detail on one of the major changes when it came to covering Trump was that the former president had the correspondents on their toes due to his Twitter feed, so the story of the day would frequently change even on a single day. 

It’s just a different kind of busy because, with Trump, you would wake up at six a.m., and you would think the news story was going to be one thing, one day,” Collins said. 

“And of course, through his Twitter feed, it would often change and adjust multiple times during a day, and you would think you’re talking about one thing. And by the time Wolf was on air that night, you were talking about something totally different.”

Billionaire Elon Musk issued pink slips at Twitter last week which prompted thousands of resignations at the platform.  

On Sunday, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle, one of Musk’s sharpest critics, tweeted that she doesn’t believe Musk is trying to ruin the company. 

“I don’t buy the argument that @elonmusk is trying to tank twitter,” she said. “No one knows how it will turn out…but clearly, he’s putting in A LOT of hours wrestling with this beast.” 

In July, The Hill reported that Ruhle branded Musk a “bully” after he posted a meme making fun of Hunter Biden. 

“Imagine the positive impact you could have on the world if you used the extraordinary amount of influence and power you have to spread decency, kindness and positivity?” Ruhle said.
“Imagine if MSNBC did that,” Musk responded. 

Twitter users responded to Ruhle Sunday by sharing some thoughts of whether they feel Musk is trying to “tank” the company. 

If Twitter doesn’t make enough revenue to cover debt payments, how many shares of Telsa will Elon have to sell to cover the payments?” One user said. 

“He’s clearly trying to tank it! He or someone who pays him sees it as a place where the truth gets out, people have some power, and liberals work together. He bought it to take a wrecking ball to it, nothing he’s done looks otherwise,” posted another user.

Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall appeared at the 4th annual Patriot Awards last week to accept an award for his courage and commitment to newsgathering. 

In March, Hall was injured in a Russian artillery attack in Kyiv, Ukraine. Pierre Zakrzewski and local Ukrainian producer Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed in the attack. 

The award was presented by Harris Faulkner and Johnny Joey Jones. 

“Benjamin Hall has been and continues to be an inspiration to all of us. He is one of the most positive people I’ve ever met in my life and one heck of a journalist,” Faulkner said. 

“I wish I could be there in person to pick it up, but I can’t yet. I am doing very well now. I’m walking a lot better,” stated Hall. “I’m seeing better. My injuries are getting better and that is all thanks to the people who came to save me.”  

The blast resulted in Hall losing right leg and left foot. He has lost use of one eye, one ear, and his left hand. 

“It’s thanks to the people who put me back together. The doctors, the nurses, the airmen, the soldiers who all in some sense risked their own lives to save me. So, I want to lift this award to them, I want to lift his award to them, to all of us and to everyone who is doing the same sort of things out there. Thank you all. I’ll see you soon,” he added.
