The US media could learn a thing or two from the Australian approach.

In case you missed it, Australian journalist, Jonathan Swan, of news outlet AXIOS went up against President Donald Trump in an interview overnight — pointing out the failings of the US government in facing the coronavirus pandemic.

The video has quickly gone viral thanks to Swan’s unflinching ability to counter Trump’s responses with hard facts and questions.

Twitter has come out en masse in support of Swan, applauding his good old fashion, no-bullshit, true blue Aussie approach:

@GoAngelo Jonathon Swan was completely professional. He asked fact based questions. Trump responding with scrambled eggs is terrifying. How can he be expected to handle anything with foreign leaders, with a pandemic, etc...

After watching the entire interview with tRump and Jonathon Swan, I've decided seeing the Aurora Borealis is no longer #1 on my bucket list. Now it's just surviving till Jan 20th 2021!

@sarahcpr One part that stands out for me is where he tries to remember what the piece of paper he's holding says then goves up and hands it to Jonathon Swan like a toddler handing a book to his parent.

While it's true that Trump's interview with Jonathon Swan looks like an episode from Veep- I have trouble laughing when I remember that this lunatic has access to our nuclear codes.

Jonathon Swan is exposing two things:

1. Trump will lie even when he’s caught. That’s gonna make it hard for Biden to land shots during debates. 
2. Trump will lie even when he’s caught. That’s gonna make it easier to stand back and let him knock himself out.

@ryanstruyk @Chiquit49048274 Jonathon Swan made it look so easy. Other reporters should take note: When Trump lies, gaslights or verballizes his hallucinations - don’t let that go. Ask a clear but factual follow-up question. And don’t forget to make the right facial expression: 😟🤨🧐🤥🤔

@JoRusse77999183 @jean_landman @brendanmc84 @VeepHBO @axios @jonathanvswan It really is but props to Jonathon Swan for not backing down and using reverse psychology, which works like a charm on Trump. Journalists should take advantage of that more often with him.

Jonathon Swan didn't even try to make him look like a clueless clown. He did it himself.

Haven't yet seen the entire Jonathon Swan Axios interview, but have seen several substantial excerpts of it--and Swan owned Trump. I've never seen an interviewer take charge of him and his nonsense the way Swan did. Bravo, Sir!

@aliberk65 @GoAngelo Jonathon Swan was as polite as anyone and still couldn't help Trump from looking like the clueless idiot that he is.
