Thursday’s update from the Coronavirus Task Force included two notable instances of President Trump dressing down the Fake News Media.
In the first instance, MSNBC reporter Kristen Welker tried to ambush the president by asking him to tell Americans when the virus crisis would be over. Trump could have told her, “Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids! Not for reporters!” But he didn’t. Instead he gave her a reasonable answer.
When Welker then tried to pivot and complain that the Trump administration wasn’t properly prepared for the coronavirus, the president let her have it.
Then toward the end of the press conference, OAN reporter Chanel Rion called out the Fake News Media as enemies of the people. That gave the president an opportunity to expound on the dangers of a corrupt media.
