President Donald Trump's daily coronavirus briefing got off to a bizarre start on Wednesday when the leader of the free world began by complaining about media coverage of his response.


In particular, Trump complained about CDC Director Robert Redfield being misquoted.

Redfield took to the lectern to attempt to clarify his remarks, and eventually admitted that he had been correctly quoted.
