CBS Unhappy With ‘Annoying’ Executive Action, Like ‘Static Electricity’


[See NewsBusters for more.] CBS This Morning on Monday jumped on Donald Trump’s executive action to provide economic relief in the wake of the pandemic, dismissing it as “annoying” and “just like static electricity.” Not even attempting to hide disdain, Major Garrett also chided the “complicated” and “unworkable aspects.” This is not what he had to say about Barack Obama’s DACA action back in 2014. Asked by Anthony Mason about the President bypassing Congress, Garrett waved it away: “This isn't much voltage. It's kind of like static electricity... For a moment you remember it, but it's mostly annoying and doesn't really solve the problem.”
