White House reporters burst out screaming at Vice President Mike Pence after the daily coronavirus task force briefing Friday. Why? Pence chose not to take their questions. Oh the horror!
Among the shouts from our supposedly unbiased reporters were accusations like, “What is going on that you’re not working with…?” and, “You’re all undermining the democratic election. Every one of you!”
Remember, these are the sources of our mainstream media headlines. Rather than seeking true journalistic integrity, their activist demands openly reveal their anti-Trump and anti-conservative disdain. Forget the coronavirus. Just answer my demands!
Never mind their lack of investigation into allegations of voter fraud in the election four years prior to Trump. Forget Dominion software’s Leftist ties or the two hundred-plus affidavits collected by Rudy Giuliani regarding voter irregularities in multiple states. Forget that the election has yet to be certified. Instead, it’s Trump who is the sore loser and refuses to concede power, and his BFF Pence with him.
Of all leaders in Washington, Vice President Pence would rank among the most humble and even-handed. In contrast with Trump’s Tweetstorms, his personality has endeared voters and offered calm on many occasions as the president’s number two.
Yet his matter-of-fact daily coronavirus update apparently triggered journalists beyond their limit with his choice to decline their daily barrage of generally-unrelated political attacks. The audacity!
Imagine reporters responding with similar shouts at a Biden interview. It won’t happen. Unless his answers are already on the teleprompter, you know in advance he’s not taking questions. And if he does, roll film, as we may have another YouTube blooper video for you. We could have, “Four more years of George,” or have him refer to the Constitution as “you know the thing.”
And, by the way, Pence’s coronavirus update included the amazing report that 100 million vaccine kits are assembled and ready to go. Operation Warp Speed is following through on its commitment. Perhaps we need an Operation Warp Speed for accurately counting legal votes in the election, too?
Viewers will need to discover this information on their own, however, as the mainstream mafia in the room with Pence was searching for blood, not a vaccine. Maybe the coronavirus updates need a warning label that states, “Viewer discretion is advised”?
With the American lives lost to COVID-19 surpassing 250,000 this week, reporters could be expected to reflect a more somber attitude. As a second wave of increased cases and spikes in new small towns grow across the nation, more Americans are looking for answers rather than anger.
Maybe those in the press room needed the words of Pence’s conclusion for their own wellbeing. “We are all in this together, and as I’ve said many times from this podium over many, many months, I know that with the cooperation of the American people, with our incredible doctors and nurses and first responders, with the extraordinary partnership of federal and state and local health officials, and with God’s help, we will get through this and we will get through this together.”
