At yesterday’s White House coronavirus press briefing, President Trump played a video that caught the mainstream media by surprise and left reporters in both the briefing room and studios across the country, triggered.
The montage crafted by the administration revealed how misinformation plagued the media coverage and showed Democrat governors from sea to shining sea praising the president’s efforts in fighting the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

Per the Daily Wire:
The video started out by showing someone on “Good Morning America” saying, “People should be more concerned right now with the flu in this country.”
Since then, we’ve seen the co-host of “Good Morning America” test positive for COVID-19 and statistics like this.
“Coronavirus is not going to cause a major issue in the United States,” someone on CBS News said.
We think a historic shutdown of the global economy to limit transmission qualifies as precisely that.
The video also showcased how the media even acknowledged that Trump was criticized for taking early action.
It also included praise for Trump from multiple governors, including Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), Gavin Newsom (D-CA), and Phil Murphy (D-NJ).
CNN cut away from the press conference shortly after the video started playing and MSNBC followed suit several moments later.
