Donald Trump Jr. Reveals Why His Dad Has Scaled Back COVID-19 Press Briefings: ‘You Can’t Win’ With Mainstream Media

Unfortunately, Trump Jr. could not be more right. The media will do absolutely anything to take down President Trump so they are never going to give him credit for anything.

Donald Trump Jr. spoke out over the weekend to blast the establishment media, saying that they will never give his father a fair chance.

Trump Jr. told Breitbart News that his dad has decided to forgo continued White House Coronavirus Task Force briefings because the media is going to be against him no matter what. He lamented the fact that the media is still unfair to President Donald Trump despite the unprecedented level of transparency that his briefings were offering them:

“That’s the reality. That’s the world we live in today. The media is going to take whatever generosity he bestows upon them, being out there sometimes for two hours—any question they could possibly have, however ridiculous and however skewed. Then they take a partial part of the response and then turn it into something else. Honestly, I don’t think there’s anyone who’s given them as much time in the history of the presidency whether in a crisis or otherwise. He’s tried to do that for transparency and that’s a consistent theme for everything he’s done for the last few years. You’ve seen, whether it was the Russia hoax—well, here are the emails. Every time he’s gotten sort of ahead of it and tried to be transparent. So, again, anything they can and will do to hurt him, they will do. I hope the people see that because it’s getting ridiculous.”

When asked about media outlets like CNN and MSNBC deciding to cut away from the briefings while President Trump spoke and not show them in their entirety, Trump Jr. could not help but laugh.

“You can’t win. You’re a hundred percent right. I think he should do the briefings, but if he does questions 10 or 15 minutes—don’t give them time to get into the obscure stuff where they’re going to try to find something weird they can manipulate or ask a sort of leading or let’s call it a ‘do you beat your wife?’ question where there’s no good answer. Like, what do you mean? They do that so often, so I think you got to cut it pretty short, let them ask the relevant questions, and don’t give them the extra time to get into the obscurities, and that’s got to be the way they handle it. You’re never going to get a fair shot. They’re never going to ask Joe Biden a tough question, they’re never going to criticize some of the pure idiocy that comes out of the guy’s mouth, and they’re never going to question that the guy can’t remember where he is 50 percent of the time. They’re certainly not going to ask him about what now seems like more credible allegations regarding Tara Reade and sexual assault, literally by a Senate staffer—not some obscure person who’s not even there, but by a Senate staffer. That’s the battlefield. That’s the battlefield we’re on. It’s never going to be fair. It’s never going to be a level playing field. We’ve got to remember that and not give them the ammunition.”

Unfortunately, Trump Jr. could not be more right. The media will do absolutely anything to take down President Trump so they are never going to give him credit for anything. He could personally find a cure for COVID-19 and reveal it at a press briefing, and the media would still find a way to twist it negatively against him. The bias the media has against Trump is sickening, and they do not deserve to be rewarded for it with more access to him at future briefings.
