Sick: Media Deceptively Edits Trump Quote, Mocks Task Force…What Is Wrong With These People?

(Liberty Bell) – Can we quarantine these people?

Typical to form but all the more shocking considering what is going on in our country right now, several media outlets decided to push more lies about the President’s Monday comments on the ongoing crisis by deceptively editing video of his words to make it sound like he’s told the states they must fend for themselves.

The president was reportedly speaking with a group of governors on a conference call when he urged them to try and get the medical supplies necessary for a widespread outbreak, such as respirators and ventilators, without waiting for the federal government which, he said, would still “be backing you.”

“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” Trump said according to a recording of the call which was shared with the New York Times.

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself,” he added.

According to the Times, the governors were “surprised” by the suggestion, pointing out that last week, Trump had directed his secretary of labor to make some respirators available to states in need.

The report implies that some governors were angry at “the administration’s slow response,” but others thought this was an excellent directive.

“What he was saying,” Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida said, “was sensible.” He went on to explain that the president was simply telling the states that they can go ahead and obtain the supplies they needed directly, to “cut out the federal bureaucracy and potentially get it quicker.”

So, which angle do you think the rest of the mainstream media took with this story?

BizPac Review notes that “Several journalists chose not to include Trump’s promise to the governors that the federal government would be ‘backing’ the states in their attempts to find and purchase the needed equipment.”

“‘Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves’ — was the extent of the reports and the message behind headlines as the reports painted the president as the bad guy, leaving the states to fend for themselves amid the coronavirus pandemic,” they explain.

The Daily Beast’s declared “Trump to U.S. Governors: Get Your Own Ventilators.

Political Wire reported: “Trump Tells Governors to Get Own Medical Equipment.”

One NYT reporter, who infamously made headlines for that embarrassingly bad math fail of Bloomberg’s campaign promises didn’t bother trying to be accurate, tweeting that he “told governors this morning they are on their own.”

Business Insider? “‘Try getting it yourselves’: Trump told governors they’re responsible for getting their own medical equipment to treat coronavirus patients.”

And Daily Kos: “Trump to governors: You’re on your own in coronavirus crisis.”

Well, as usual, the Trump campaign did not take this sitting down.

Zach Parkinson, the Deputy Director of Communications for Trump’s re-election campaign, pointed out the “incredible contrast” between what Trump actually said and what is being reported.

“Apparently deliberately misrepresenting what the President said on the call is a thing in the @nytimes newsroom today,” he added.

He continued:

“And this is without even taking the full context of the call into account,” he added, noting the nine instances in which outlets’ Twitter headlines had “pushed the cut off quote.”

He was not alone:

  1. Our Country is in the state of emergency and all our media outlets can do is backbite and subvert and sensationalize the truth.They are not being part of the solution but are part of the problem instead.They even can’t even put there hate and bias aside for the good of the people in this country.

  2. No one twisted anything, that is exactly what Trump said on the replays on these sites.
    Told the Governor that Trump had his back but to try to acquire the things they needed on their own because it would possibly be quicker. Now it seems like it is fine for Trump to make false statements about others but no one can even make a valid statement that does not flatter the wanabee King.

  3. The NYT????? Who on earth reads these filthy rags anyway??? The media is as corrupt as the Democratic Party…I wouldn’t believe ANYTHING coming out of their mouths!! I wonder why NO ONE gives a damn about the influenza deaths this year (22,000 and counting) or why Obama waited five months to do ANYTHING about the Swine Flu? I don’t believe a vaccine would make that much difference…we’ve had flu vaccines for decades and half of the idiots out there won’t get vaccinated, or the other idiots who refuse to have their own children vaccinated against illnesses and diseases that were wiped out in this country, but have now returned….I refuse to go along with the panic and fear-mongering or the ridiculous HOARDING tactics exhibited by others. Stay home if you are ill, COVER your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze, and last but not least, WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS!!!! I have seen my fair share of abominable personal hygiene habits and THAT is what spreads illness, NOT the President!!!

  4. Does anyone realize how authoritarian the gist of these comments are? Do we really want news outlets to have prior approval from this or any other administration?

  5. This president should have a team of attorneys to initiate lawsuits against these leftist “journalists” who repeatedly write fake news stories that are designed to defame the actions of the presidency. The Times and CNN would, and should, be financially broken in one year.

    • I agree, hit them in their pocket book! Hard and dont let up! Soon these fake news outlets will be gone. I am sick to death how these nut sacks do this. They hate Trump so bad it has clouded their judgement and has made them crazed!

  6. The media as it is must be disbanded. We need to have test and proof of broadcasting truth. They should have their license removed for lying. Thi has become downright Evil!

    • The media must not be above being held accountable for telling lies of either commission or omission.

      If they claim they made an “error” then their apology must be a real apology, of an equal number of words as the original story, and on the same page and under the same section as the original story. No advertising will be allowed on this page.

      If these conditions are not met then they must be held legally liable for libel or defamation and can be sued for from $50k and up per incident, plus lawyer costs.

      Their job is NOT reporting. It is correct, balanced, full, and truthful reporting. Otherwise they serve no useful purpose to society, are actually harmful to social development and the body politic, and must be disbanded.

  7. Total HACKS. They lie to impress their libtard buddies and colleagues…they are a disgrace to the so-called journalist “profession”

  8. Nothing new from fake news! It is their usual. Pity the poor souls who take them seriously!
    Wonder what they will have to say after the 2020 election? They hate the man because he is not a professional politician and tells it like it is and puts the little men and women, as well as America, first. That’s why he got elected in the first place: he rocked the establishment’s “business-as-usual” boat had ruined our economy. If he walked on water, they would swear he was wearing a pair of rubber floaters.

    • Irma – I do NOT pity those “poor souls” in the least. They have been told time after time to verify ‘news’ stories – especially opinion pieces but they CHOOSE to simply swallow the swill the lame stream media constantly shovels

  9. I can’t believe that there are still people out there paying any attention at all to the Left and the media.Those 2 groups need to be expelled along with the illegals. Those who continue to give a credence to them are outright STUPID!

    Look around people. Use common sense. You might just survive this.

  10. What the hell is wrong with these morons? Instead of wishing those in charge all the best you stoop this low? I don’t know where you scums got your education, especially NBC. Go back to school and while you’re at it learn some respect. Respect yourselves, and you will be respected.

  11. The NYTimes should be ashamed of themselves!!!!! At a time when people are already stressed enough to continue to print lies about this President who has done such a good job handling this Pandemic. All I can say is God Bless President Trump and his cabinet and all of the others he has enlisted to fight this unseen enemy!!!

    • Democrats always lie about everything. That is why I left the party in 1972. Keep educating you friends and neighbors about each lie. They are on the edge of a complete tumble. Push them.
