‘Shameless’: CNN and MSNBC Cut Off Briefing, Rip Trump for Touting Anti-Drug Trafficking Effort During Coronavirus Update


Much of the MSM would rather not report the news. They would much rather smear President Trump to hurt his re-election chances. The MSM (CNN and MSNBC in particular) need to face serious consequences for their perfidy, malfeasance, and corruption. However, in the interim Americans need to stop watching their trash “news” shows. Make anti-Trump bigots such as Jeff Zucker and Andy Lack pay with low ratings.

‘Shameless’: CNN and MSNBC Cut Off Briefing, Rip Trump for Touting Anti-Drug Trafficking Effort During Coronavirus Update

By Mediate, April 4, 2020:

At different points of Wednesday’s White House press briefing on coronavirus, CNN and MSNBC not only cut away from the briefing but criticized President Donald Trump for today’s big focus on U.S. efforts against drug trafficking.

The president said at one point, “As governments and nations focus on the coronavirus, there is a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists, and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain. And we must not let that happen. We will never let that happen. Today the United States is launching enhanced counter-narcotics operations in the Western hemisphere to protect the American people from the deadly scourge of illegal narcotics. We must not let the drug cartels exploit the pandemic to threaten American lives.”

When CNN cut away, Wolf Blitzer observed the White House was trying to “change the focus” and John King went a little further:

“It is remarkable, Wolf, and some would say shameless. This is a coronavirus task force briefing. The country is in the middle of a pandemic. Americans are afraid, they are turning into these briefings to try to get information from the White House… If the United States military and the Justice Department are doing a better job keeping cocaine and other illicit drugs from getting into the country, congratulations. You can schedule an event at the Pentagon, the Justice Department, or in the White House briefing room if you think it’s that big of a deal, but call it what it is, say we have a major announcement on the war on drugs. Instead, they walk out for the coronavirus task force meeting and the president’s trying to have a bit of a political statement here.”

He reiterated Americans should applaud any success being made in the drug war but that’s “not what this briefing was scheduled for.”
