    Reader: “Did you see all the f*** face reporters trying to take down Trump?”

    In fairness, they were not as hostile and offensive as usual. But they did piss off one Legal Insurrection reader who texted me in real time.

    Yesterday I wrote about the mounting fury toward the media for it’s blatant exploitation and weaponization of the Wuhan coronavirus public health threat, NY Times reporter: “disdain for and distrust of the media right now is worse than I’ve seen at any point throughout this presidency”.

    Can you feel it? I certainly do.

    There is a rising fury at the blatant media exploitation and weaponization of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic….

    I see it in the comments here, and on social media. People are sick of the media serving as the water boy/girl for Democrats, and of making false accusations of racism as the cudgel.

    I experience that today during Trump’s press conference.

    The press conference was a masterpiece, an uplifting celebration of the power and ability of consumer-oriented corporate America to solve problems. Seeing the CEO’s arch-rivals Walmart and Target, CVS and Walgreens, standing together with the President and health officials was inspiring.

    And the markets loved it, soaring as the press conference started and went forward.

    Then came the questions from reporters.

    In fairness, they were not as hostile and offensive as usual. But they did piss off one Legal Insurrection reader who texted me in real time:

    Trump is kicking ass with all these companies coming in to help pull together to fight this virus. You got to see it.

    Obama could never of done it.

    Did you see all the fuck face reporters trying to take Trump down by their questions?

    Have been talking to lots of Trump supporters across the country these last couple of days, and the disdain for and distrust of the media right now is worse than I’ve seen at any point throughout this presidency.

    Yes, the press conference was a masterpiece. Ever CEO was tickled to death to be there, ad Trump was smart enough to give them credit and a national ad for their company. Getting all those big guns on board was brilliant. That’s how we won WWII.

    Buying the oil turned the oil market around on a dime. I watched it happen in real time. To me, it all showed hard work ad planning that’s been going on for weeks. And I’m glad to hear that some people a little left are starting to see things. But my Aunt, bless her heart, a little pink from too much Il Papa Francis and other such, just had to say “Should have done it sooner”. I did erupt a little (gently). Couldn’t believe that she saw the same thing I did, and that’s all she saw. Didn’t see the work all those people had done, didn’t see the brilliance, the many-pronged plan.

    I couldn’t believe the *ingratitude*. Wish I had thought to say, “Remember, God loves the grateful heart.” Sometimes it’s hard work to love these people.

    No, I was too dumbfounded, to tell the truth. Just aive — couldn’t believe someone wouldn’t see the hard work that went into that, or be grateful to them all for it, not just trump. And she’s a kind, good woman. Just goes to show what TDS does to good people

    TY Prof.

    The press conference was a masterpiece, an uplifting celebration of the power and ability of consumer-oriented corporate America to solve problems.

    I watched, and I am embarrassed to admit that I was moved to tears by the various corporate heads.

    I will blame the Jameson.

    I wasn’t moved to tears, but I do admire all the coordination and planning.

    Impressive, particularly impressive coming from the government.
