Much like witless comedian Kathy Griffin, it seems fairly evident that the national media has been broken by President Donald Trump.
The president returned to the White House on Monday after being treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for COVID-19, and while he may not be out of the woods yet, the scene was about as triumphant as one could imagine.
A brilliant video was shared by Trump showing him disembarking from Marine One and walking up the steps onto the South Portico’s stately balcony. It was then that he removed his mask — for the photographers below, who were not visible — before saluting the departing aircraft and giving a thumbs up.
In doing so, the Trump-hating media lost its collective mind. Literally. They threw a tantrum any two-year-old would have been proud of, insisting that the president was still contagious — this being the same cabal that spent the entire time Trump was in the hospital trying to prove that he intentionally exposed people to the virus.
Leading the charge, as usual, was CNN’s primadonna White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who has made his name opposing Trump, along with colleague Kaitlan Collins.
The hard news journalist called the president of the United States the “Coronavirus in Chief.”

Another hard news reporter, NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, joined Acosta on the floor kicking and screaming — while offering zero context.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who announced Monday that she tested positive for the coronavirus, took time out from battling the disease to explain to the media jackals that Trump “is LEADING and REASSURING the nation.”
McEnany specifically named CNN, tweeting: “Each day their lows become lower.”
Our President @realDonaldTrump contracted COVID-19 & is doing extraordinarily well, standing on the balcony days after his diagnosis.
He is LEADING and REASSURING the nation.
Leave it to CNN to shamefully spin this into a negative. Each day their lows become lower!

The sad display from the election-minded media, which is desperate to find fault in every single action the president takes, regardless of circumstance, prompted Mollie Hemingway to express concern about their wellbeing.
The Federalist senior editor tweeted, “OK, on behalf of the sane part of the country, I have to ask … is there something we can do about the major media’s complete mental breakdown that we’re all witnessing right now? Legit worried about them.”

Hemingway also shared a tweet from Katie Couric, saying the former CBS Evening News anchor “accidentally explains why Big Media is losing it right now” — Couric is whining about the media covering Trump leaving the hospital.
On that note, can you imagine their reaction if this was President Barack Obama?
Honestly I find it infuriating. Why didn’t anyone have the balls to say we are not doing this? Please network executives. You were just played.

What seems lost to the media, or intentionally ignored, is that Trump was standing 20-30 feet away from any living soul when he removed the mask, as Breitbart News’ Brandon Darby observed.
The context you left out is that he’s 20-30 feet away from other human beings. So what if he took his mask off? I don’t get it. https://t.co/u3Sv7NfoWV

Speaking of Obama, amid all the ruckus, the tweet of the day belongs to social media user Kate Hyde: “Trump is now the second President to be involved in a controversial unmasking scandal.”

Of all the unhinged liberal journalists melting down, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin really takes the cake.
Rubin tweeted Monday afternoon that Congress should “defund” the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where President Trump was treated, calling it a “public health hazard.”
Congress might want to defund Walter Reed. It is a public health hazard.

For your entertainment, here’s a quick sampling of the responses to Acosta from Twitter:

Dear diary, Trump took his mask off when standing by himself on a balcony and I'm still losing my shit, cause that's the kind of useless Trump deranged hack I am. https://t.co/2g9xJfiQOE
