Trump’s Campaign Slaps TV Stations With Cease And Desist Letter To Try To Halt Ad Attacking His Coronavirus Response

[twitter.com]

Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has fired off a cease and desist letter to TV stations, warning them to stop airing an ad from a pro-Joe Biden Super PAC that is a scathing attack on the president’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

The spot features a graph mapping coronavirus cases in the U.S. over the past two months, with audio of comments Trump has made downplaying the threat of the virus.

In their letter to stations, the Trump campaign says that the Super PAC, Priorities USA Action, “stitched together fragments from multiple speeches by President Trump to fraudulently and maliciously imply that President Trump called the coronavirus outbreak a ‘hoax.’ They contend that Trump was in fact “talking about the Democrat’s politicization of the outbreak when he used the word ‘hoax.'” FactCheck.org noted that Trump told reporters the next day that he was not calling the virus a hoax, but the Democrats’ response to it.

this one follows the obvious "Streisand effect" generated by the cease and desist letters...

My local public radio station, KUOW, has stopped broadcasting the White House press briefings because they consist of "exaggerations and false information that were not fact checked in real time."

Yoinks! Kinda makes it harder to avoid the question: "are we three years and a couple months too late doing this?"

I think most news orgs are not going to carry the briefings live and complete anymore. Especially after a TWO HOUR slog with very little new information, but lots of presidential praising.

There is no need. These are just daily updates - no BIG NEWS - no need for wall to wall coverage. Trump is pissed! He thinks the world should stop every time he opens his mouth.

I guarantee that once the briefings are no longer covered live, Trump will stop showing up to them.

These daily "Trump Rallies" are devolving into rants about his wall, his dedication, his wealth, his hardships because of his wealth, his genius … way past time to put a stop to them.

I'm sure he's going to provide evidence of this hoax that he was actually talking about to backup his legal position.

This thing is evolving to fast for the briefings to go away and I don't think people want them to stop - most'd just prefer he go away and let the experts brief us.

Faux News will continue to cover them no matter what happens or what he says.
