Media Meltdown: CNN Goes Ballistic When Trump Leaves Without Taking Questions

Trump made a special appearance to discuss the wall this Thursday afternoon. This time he brought a handful of people who know better than anyone the importance and effectiveness of a physical border wall vs. the dangers in areas where no wall exists. I’m talking about ICE agents. Both retired and active, they showed up in support of the President and what he is trying to achieve.

“I just want to talk about some of those criminals that Border Patrol agents apprehend on a daily basis,” said Hector Garza, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council and a Border Patrol officer in Texas. “We’re talking about murderers, rapists, people that commit very serious crimes in this country. ICE has been doing an amazing job in deporting a lot of these people back to their countries. Unfortunately, once we deport these people, these people will not stay in their country. These criminal aliens that have been released from jail that have been deported will come right back into the United States. However, if we had a physical barrier, if we had a wall, we would be able to stop that.” Trump pleaded for Congress to fund the wall.

Border Patrol veteran of 21 years, Brandon Judd took the podium to explain how he has personally witnessed how border walls work to halt criminal activity and illegal border crossing.

After the two spoke, President Trump and the agents simply left and that one small action set the press on edge. CNN was particularly triggered by not being given the time of day. CNN House reporter Kaitlan Collins wrote: “It’s not a press briefing if you don’t take questions.” Collins can be heard after the briefing ended yelling about the President not taking questions.

She was joined by Brian Stelter, yet another member of CNN who wrote: “The announced a “briefing,” but did not hold one. Trump spoke, but left without taking any Q’s. A reporter shouted: “Sarah, are you coming back? Are you not taking any questions at all?” She didn’t.”

CNN senior correspondent Jeff Zeleny chimed in: “President Trump leaves briefing room without taking questions — making it crystal clear that it was a political dog-and-pony show, rather than an attempt to answer questions about opening the government. No questions taken by Trump or Sanders in first WH briefing of year.”

What’s clear here is that the press isn’t getting the message. Trump is pleading to Congress and not there to make their headlines for them. He brought both retired and active border patrol members there to give their first-hand accounts of what it’s really like guarding a border without a wall.
