Barely a minute or two into Donald Trump’s latest press briefing today, he started airing some kind of propaganda video. MSNBC cut away from it immediately, and ended up not airing a single second of the video. Meanwhile, CNN – perhaps sensing that a propaganda video was coming when it saw the TV sets erected in the Rose Garden – isn’t even airing today’s press briefing.
This comes after Trump pulled the same stunt earlier this week, and both networks aired part of his propaganda video before realizing they were being duped and cutting away. Trump loves to keep trying the same trick over and over again. Fortunately, MSNBC and CNN didn’t fall for it today.
