Trump Coronvirus Briefing Video ‘Lifted In Part From Hannity’s Fox News Show’: Media Matters




President Donald Trump turned Monday’s White House task force briefing into an opportunity to lash out at critics and the press with a bizarre video that amounted to a campaign ad, before later declaring his authority is “total.”

Trump kicked off Monday’s press briefing with an off the rails presser with a video attacking media coverage of the pandemic.

Part of that video, Media Matters reports, was directly lifted from the March 26 episode of Fox News’ “Hannity.”



Media Matters shared a clip comparing the video Trump played during today’s briefing (top) and a portion of the video montage that aired on Fox News on March 26.

The White House video began with a white screen saying “the media minimized the risk from the start.”





The video ended with a mash-up of news clips of different governors giving kind remarks about the president’s response to the pandemic.

Both CNN and MSNBC cut away during the multi-minute campaign ad.
