Trump Gives Mainstream Media the Silent Treatment After ‘Disinfectant’ Disinformation Spreads

Well that’s one way to deal with the mischievous mainstream media.

It has been a raucous week for President Trump and his relationship with the mainstream media, and his latest tactic has been pulled directly out of an angry wife’s playbook:  The silent treatment.

It all began when President Trump made a comment to an off-camera medical professional about the viability of injecting people with disinfectants in order to kill coronavirus, citing the fact that these disinfectants will kill COVID-19 in seconds when applied to the hands.  The absurd injection suggestion was just that, absurd, and everyone knew it.

Everyone except for the mainstream media, apparently, who spend the next day attempting to convince their audience that the President was serious.  Then, when Trump called out this falsehood the next day, the media insisted that he was simply “lying”.

Now, with Trump seemingly damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t, he’s just not doing it.

President Donald Trump on Friday exited the White House coronavirus press briefing without taking any questions from reporters.

The president concluded the briefing after he and his team delivered opening statements, saying, “Thank you very much,” before turning and exiting the room. Reporters shouted questions as he walked away.

There was apparently some other drama as well.

Prior to the briefing, reporters said that White House staff tried to change seating in the press briefing room, moving CNN to the back of the room and moving Washington Bladereporter Chris Johnson to the front.

“White House staff just came into the briefing room and informed the print pooler that they want them to swap seats w CNN,” Yahoo News media reporter Hunter Walker wrote on Twitter. “That would move CNN to the back row from the front.”

Reporters refused to move, even though the White House staffer threatened to have Secret Service enforce the seat change.

In a cruel twist of irony, it is highly possible that this absence of soundbites from President Trump will cause the infotainment industry’s ratings to dip over the weekend.
