President Donald Trump and his sidekick, the infectious disease expert Dr. Anthoney Fauci, absolutely inhaled the "fake news" national media during yesterday's Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing at the White House by beating them into submission with their own words.

The disrespectful media brats yelled and screamed and whined at Trump but there was little cover to be had when the Trump and Fauci Show unleashed a damning string of video clips clearly showing their own networks underestimated the threat from the COVID-19 coronavirus – something they, of course, have accused the administration of doing, though a timeline of events clearly discredits that claim. Trump was only too happy to review that timeline both verbally and as part of the video display used to hammerlock the stunned elitists.

If their own words weren't enough, Trump used further video of Democrat governors such as California's Gavin Newsom and New York's Andrew Cuomo praising Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the Coronavirus Task Force for their leadership and decisiveness in dealing with the crisis.

Dr. Fauci led the assault by setting the record straight about misinformation the press corps has been spreading that he and Trump have been at odds over how to proceed during this time of national crisis. At one point, Fauci barked at a CBS reporter before tagging off to Trump and climbing out of the ring.

The media uses innuendo, half-truths, and outright lies in presenting its anti-Trump narrative. Trump has the truth on his side, not to mention a whole lot of videotaped evidence to back his claims.

Trump and Fauci took the media to the mat yesterday by using the heavily-viewed press briefing to report the truth to the American people. They effectively used videotaped evidence and a timeline of events in unmasking the deceit and deception of the mainstream media.

Score one big one for the good guys. Score one big one for the truth.
