I would normally start off with a link to President Trump’s daily briefing on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus, but for the first time in weeks, he didn’t hold one over the weekend. He implied that he might end them because of the hostile/idiotic media response, tweeting:

“What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately. They get record ratings, & the American people get nothing but Fake News. Not worth the time & effort!”

I can’t say I blame him, since I had the same reaction to last week’s off-the-rails hysteria accusing Trump of suggesting that people inject themselves with Lysol (incidentally, where would they get all this Lysol? I can’t even find it in stores.) That and “Labradoodle-gate” were so jaw-droppingly stupid, childish and willfully obtuse that I didn’t even want to waste my time commenting on them, and that's my job. At least take the effort to make up fake news that sounds half-way plausible.

Trump has spent day after day, sometimes for over an hour at a stretch, dispensing information, trying to keep up people’s hopes and dispel their fears, and answering questions from the media. And in return, every syllable out of his mouth has been parsed, twisted, disputed, refuted, mocked and scorned. Reporters have wasted their precious opportunity to ask the President about a matter of monumental importance to every American, instead lobbing gotcha questions and childish accusations. Even after putting up with it every day for weeks, when he finally got fed up and took a weekend off from their incessant barking, CNN ran this accusatory headline: “Trump goes into hiding.”

So what did CNN call it when Obama went for months without a press conference, averaging fewer than two a month through his entire term? I can’t imagine they accused him of “going into hiding.”

I prefer to think of it as Trump setting a good hygiene example for all Americans by washing his hands of this nasty media virus.

    I reread my comment after submitting it...darn that autocorrect.
    It was suppose to say,
    I have noticed on my social media, most democratic voters are turning their backs on the democratic party and said they are voting for Trump in the 2020 elections.

    Governor Huckabee,
    I've very nearly stopped listening to the news, (fox and friends excluded) due to the false reports.
    Local news are just as bad as CNN, MSNBC, HLN and all the rest.
    From the looks? President Trump is looking defeated. I pray for him and his family everyday when I wake up, as well as every evening before bed.
    A moment of silence and respect for our great, awesome leader is needed.
    If only he knew just how many American people are proud to have him as our leader.
    On my social media, I have noticed how many democratic voters say they are turning their back on the democratic party and will bite Trump 2020.

    I will miss the daily briefings but not the idiots who ask questions and print fake news. We have a very intelligent President, who is doing a fantastic job. Unbelievable how much hatred the Democrats have for “we the people “ of this United States of America ????!

    I agree with you Governor Huckabee!! The lame stream media and those idiotic reporters makes me so mad every day with their attitudes and disrespect for our President.. Sometimes I have to pray after watching because I let it mess with me and I'm screaming at them and getting in the wrong spirit .... Other times I'm sitting here rebuking them in the name of JESUS and commanding them to shut up! I believe we should have more respect for those that have the rule over us (unless they are going against God's Holy Word),, President Trump really is trying to help America and make America great (with the Lords help), and I think people that show such behavior as the leftist and most demon-crats portray should be punished.. I certainly enjoy President Trumps briefing and love to hear what he has to say and I hope that he don't stop doing the briefings but rather forbid the leftist media from being in attendance.. However, I know that he works endless hours and he is probably tired..

    I agree that Pres. Trump should cease with the press briefings. Perhaps just an announcement directly to the American people, no press!
