WATCH: Trump silences reporter asking him if he’s sending ‘mixed messages’ with his coronavirus comments

Published

on

During a surprise appearance at a press conference that was supposed to be helmed by Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump cut off MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell as she tried to press him over sending ” mixed messages” to the public every time he publically addresses the nation.

After O’Donnell asked him about his Friday Rose Garden comments and shaking the hands of the CEOs in attendance — directly contradicting the CDC’s advice to avoid contact that could spread the virus — the president explained that he did it out of habit, while also defending manhandling the microphone for other speakers.

After the White House correspondent asked, “Why are you shaking hands?” Trump responded, “It’s almost a habit. Frankly, I was a non-handshaker for the most part. I know it, too political people walk up. They want to shake my hand and I say, well –,” before the reporter tried to get a word in.

“Wait a minute, just take it nice and easy, just relax,” Trump cut her off. “People come up to me and somebody put their hand out and it’s a natural reflex and we’re all getting out of it — all of us have that problem.”

Masks that cover the mouth and nose have proven to be one of the most effective ways of containing the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the politicization of the issue continues to be a major Republican concern.

"Idaho Senate Republicans are setting up their agenda for the upcoming 2021 legislative session. As reported in the Post Register, one of their top priorities is to 'pursue measures in January to limit the governor’s emergency powers.' The immediate reason for this, of course, is Gov. Little’s anti-coronavirus measures," columnist Mike Murphy wrote in the Idaho State Journal.
