Skip to comments.Coronavirus: Trump berates media at jaw-dropping briefing
Posted on 04/14/2020 2:28:09 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
On Monday morning I had a delivery to my apartment from the nearby off-licence - or liquor store, as they say over here.
And I put a jokey picture on Twitter of a bottle of gin and eight bottles of tonic, with the caption that at least I had the next week sorted.
After leaving the White House Briefing Room on Monday evening following a marathon two-hour 24-minute press conference, I felt I could have knocked off the whole lot in one sitting.
This has been the most dizzying, jaw-dropping, eyeball-popping, head-spinning news conference I have ever attended. And I was at Bill Clinton's news conference in 1998 when he faced the press for the first time over his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
I was at this president's first White House gathering when he called me "another beauty". I was in Helsinki when he had his first news conference with Vladimir Putin, and seemed to prefer to believe the Russian leader over his own security and intelligence chiefs on interference in the 2016 election.
What made last night's encounter unique was the context. And secondly, this was, if you like, a distillation - all the talk of gin, I think, forced me to use that word - in one news conference of what three and a half years of Donald Trump has been like to cover.
Donald Trump walked into the briefing room with scores to settle with the media. This wasn't about the dead, the desperately sick, the people fearful of catching the virus. This was about him. And more particularly his profound sense of grievance that the media has been critical of his handling of Covid-19.

I love how President Trump uses the media to beat the media into drooling fools.
Chris cuomo melted down yesterday. Attacked CNN and a lot of other things. He is still running a fever which means the virus is still attacking him
C. Cuomo attacked CNN? Really? Interesting.
Our Founders never imagined a united ‘national media’.
Much less one that depended on foreigners for their profits.
Epic Bitch Slap
We will see if he walks it back today.
It was quite a rant
I think basement dwelling and fever is getting to Fredo
The thread is worthless without a pic of this also worthless gin swilling excuse for a bbc jurnalist. What? I’m supposed to do my own research?
...and with six tonics I’m going to have to accuse the Trump hater of hording what millions of American’s are fruitlessly searching for on the shelves of grocery stores the quinine containing tonic water.
Amazing when you look at the actual reality, not the odd augmented one in which libs reside.
The President has given detailed briefings every single day, something the authors team really wants him to quit doing, and this little pissant has a problem with the President doing some cheerleading and confidence raising.
Vladimir Putin, and seemed to prefer to believe the Russian leader over his own security and intelligence chiefs on interference in the 2016 election.
The intelligence community was part of the silent coup against the President, he was better off believing Putin then anything that came out of the snakes from the previous administration.
Jon Sopel taking quinine for what ails him.
What a piece of crap excuse for a reporter.
Don’t do any research on this... This is not the BBC your looking for.
On second thought never mind. I finally read the article and saw the pic. That was enough. When the doofus in question decided that he knew what was in the President’s mind to make a most definitive statement about how OUR President runs the country, without saying IMHO, that was all I needed to know.
A furiner with a thin skin.
...and please, go easy on the tonic water, some good American’s need a bottle or two.
When Trump turned down the lights and showed that video and used the media’s own words against them it was pure gold.
It was like he put a red hot poker up their ass and broke it off.....when the came back live, it was like he had given all of them a standing 8 count.....
I didn’t I just read the article after my first post, see my 14. The research comment was basically a chain yanker anyway.
Your description means I gotta watch this tomorrow!!! Thanks!!
And that RUDE, STUPID DEMOCRAT (redundant) Screaming Banshee reporterette showed he monkey ass for all to see!!
I got it.... But you didn’t get my joke.... BBC has “other” meanings... I was joking back at your post.
Does he look light in his loafers too, or does he just write like he is?
