CBS: Trump Trying to ‘Make This an Outsiders Problem’ With ‘America-First’ Speech


[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at CBS This Morning on Thursday lashed out at Donald Trump’s Coronavirus address from the White House, objecting to the President using the word foreign in his Wednesday-night speech. This, apparently, made the effort an “America-first” attempt at sliming “outsiders.” Guest host Michelle Miller complained, “The President also called this a foreign virus. What has he accomplished by making this an outsider's problem?” Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett derided, “It is kind of an America-first rhetorical flourish that has nothing to do with public health, safety, or public health communication.”
