This isn't fake news, its no news. As of 17:39 today, President Trump his giving his daily briefing to his fellow countrypersons. NBC is airing NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt including: One On One With Lester Holt And Andrew Como. Nothing like giving the NBC viewers COVID-19 info filtered through a governor instead of direct from the President Of The United States.

Do any of you few remaining Trump haters see anything wrong with this?

Different stations haven't been televising Trump's entire press briefings.
Answer: change the channel. CSPAN is best.

I think the point is, the MSM is refusing to carry the unfiltered facts, in favor of their own version of them. That's a serious problem.

And FOX has been reporting that Trump shut down air travel from China. You yourself has written that twice in the past few hours.
I guess people have to be discerning enough to seek out true facts on their own.

Will, if that's the case, then stop saying the airlines had already stopped flights from China before Trump stopped them, because that not true. It's verifiably false. The airlines only announced they were going to stop the flights, but didn't actually stop any of them until a day after Trump did.

So the airlines make an announcement that their going to suspend flights from China in a few days. Trump is like ... oh snap! I better get on this ... and makes his announcement a day before it was already going into action anyway. And now somehow he claims this decision as his?
TALK ABOUT FAKE NEWS!!

Trump has obvious patterns of behavior. One of them is saying the same talking points over and over .... willing them into existence. The mind numbing zombies that only watch FOX News consume this drivel like movie theater popcorn.

Italy banned flights from China on Jan 31st and it was a complete ban, with no exemptions. The US policy had wide exemptions.

The coronavirus response by Trump has been slow, chaotic, confusing and lacking leadership. Post all the BS on this forum you want. It doesn't change the reality.

You had public officials on the other side still celebrating about impeachment at the time, saying everything was fine and calling him a racist.

Only when viewed through the lens of "Orange Man Bad." To those who hate Trump, it's impossible for him to do anything that meets with their approval. It doesn't matter what it is, it's bad, even evil.

You know what changes reality? Orange Man Bad. Trump says something, he's called clueless. Governor Andrew Cuomo says the exact same thing, word for word, and he's #PresidentCuomo.

Reporters just retweet and comment about it without even checking for accuracy. It's making them even lazier.

I just saw on shopping channel full face shields. You wear them with the surgical masks or other masks. Looks like good protection.

The Washington Post publishes this article:

Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.

Then in the article they publish data charts that show Trump is correct, but the author of the piece goes on to say that Trump is still wrong, because of the top 20 most dangerous cities, only 19 of them are run by Democrats. Most people don't ever read past the 4th paragraph in a news article, and nearly 90% don't make it past the 6th paragraph, so it's not surprising that it isn't until the 7th paragraph where we read, "Most of the current mayors of these cities are Democrats." Then he can't help himself and points out 3 cities with Independent mayors, so there. But those 3 cities, San Antonio, Las Vegas and Springfield, the mayor doesn't run the city, the City Council does, and the City Councils in those cities are progressive liberal Democrat. And he's even wrong about the mayor of Las Vegas, who is most definitely, and famously, a Democrat.

Then he goes on, like it matters somehow, as to why cities tend to be heavily Democratic, But Tim Pool, centrist-lefty that he is, blows that up in the pretty funny video below.
