White House Week: A Very Different Bookend [Weekend Update]

 

[Updated with highlighted transcripts, commentary, and more video.]

The last week of April started with a Monday like recent Mondays, President Trump and the Coronavirus Task Force battling the Democrats posing as reporters. President Trump then changed the media programming formula with a very different look Tuesday through Thursday. There were meetings with three governors, one Republican and two Democrats. The president and the governors came across as competent leaders working together through a crisis. There were events highlighting one group or another of Americans affected by both the virus and the known side effects of Dr. Fauci’s prescription for America. Meanwhile, the Vice President was out of Washington, visiting the Mayo Clinic and then a repurposed GM plant where ventilators were already stacking up on shelves for shipment. I characterized the week as “from the White House Whirlwind Tuesday, through the Wednesday Whirlwind, to the Thursday Twister.” So, would there be another big-time wrestling battle royale on Friday?

No! Instead, President Trump turned the new queen of the cage, Kayleigh “Crusher” McEnany loose on the unsuspecting White House press corps. Their executives should have thrown in the towel, as she outmaneuvered the whole room. That happened earlier in the afternoon, clearing the way for another controlled, presidential event: “Presidential Recognition Ceremony: Hard Work, Heroism, and Hope.” You can hear the left grinding its teeth all across the country.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America very warily approach the reports of North Korea supposedly being willing to scrap its nuclear program in exchange for security guarantees.  While fully aware that Kim Jong-Un may only be looking to bait us or stall for time, they are hopeful that the tougher approach from the Trump administration is starting to pay off.  They also wince as Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri emerges in a new video urging jihadists to stop fighting with each other and focus on a common enemy.  And they react with bemusement and concern as former Trump campaign official Sam Nunberg appears on several cable news shows to announce he is defying the subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, only to later admit he will probably cooperate.

Okay, I confess I read some headlines on Drudge and other sources that really ticked me off. Brace yourselves, here it comes . . . I’m fed up with you dried-up, rail-thin sticks from Hollywood who call yourselves women ragging on SHS. Sure, Sarah’s a little on the plump side, and she dresses differently than […]

Press asks Sarah Huckabee Sanders to disclose if she’s ever been sexually harassed, Merriam-Webster declares “feminism” the word of the year, and another alarming study showing negative side effects of birth control. All this and more in this week’s episode of Problematic Women.

Sarah Sanders Creates a Real No-Spin Zone

 

Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down a White House reporter during a press conference Friday. CNN’s April Ryan tried to force a conversation that Trump’s visit to Puerto Rico was “controversial” — meaning the whiny San Juan mayor made a fuss.

(When Mayor Cruz joined Joy Reid on the “The Rachel Maddow show” Tuesday night, she called Trump’s actions during his visit “terrible and abominable,” and criticized the round table discussion as a “PR 17-minute meeting.”)

Sanders talked right over Reid and said that the San Juan mayor made “zero comments” when President Trump opened the table for discussion during his visit to PR. She said the visit was not “controversial” and was in fact “widely praised, even by a Democrat Governor.” She also argued the Mayor was “politicizing” the visit rather than “focusing on the relief efforts.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to President Trump making a deal with Democratic leaders to enact DACA into law in exchange for “massive border security” that has yet to be defined.  They also sigh as the Trump administration continues sanctions relief for Iran in conjunction with the nuclear deal it still hasn’t scrapped.  And they slam the White House for suggesting ESPN anchor Jemele Hill ought to fired for tweeting that Trump is a white supremacist while also blasting Hill and ESPN for their aggressively extreme politics.
