WH Spox Rips Media For Criticizing Trump’s Corinavirus Response: Why Do They Continue To Look Backwards?

Mediaite reports:

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz opened MediaBuzz Sunday by saying it’s pretty clear there was a “shift” in how seriously President Donald Trump has been taking coronavirus. “President Trump has been taking a much tougher and far more aggressive stance against the coronavirus, and he told reporters he’s always taken the virus seriously,” Kurtz said.

He showed a montage of Trump saying things like “we have it under control” and “I’m not concerned at all.” “The president is no longer soft-pedaling the magnitude of this crisis,” Kurtz said.

He then spoke with White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who immediately tried to argue there was no “shift,” pointing to Trump’s early actions on China travel and saying he’s “acted appropriately as we have learned and had new developments about this virus.”
