Somebody at the Daily Mail’s social media desk is hoping for a lot of those sweet clicks Monday night after tweeting that President Trump REFUSED to say if he’d been tested for the coronavirus and then stormed out of the briefing. From the video we’ve seen, the question was shouted after he’d left the room to turn the briefing over to Vice President Pence, also known as “storming out.”

Science calm and confident. Media frenzied and political.

The Fake and Corrupt News is a disinformation operation.
I just watched this live. This description is a TOTAL LIE.
Fake News is the enemy of the American people.

It’s normal to walk slowly and acknowledge and thank people as you are “storming out.”?
— Anne (@AnneP_NC) March 9, 2020
Yes. It's just ridiculous. And this is why no one with a functioning brain trust the media.

Just another sad example of why Americans can no longer trust much of the media. They are not interested in the truth or integrity. They are interested in pushing an ideology that divides and will eventually destroy our republic.

Aren’t they worried being crammed into a confined space like the briefing room? Should they demand that briefings be live-streamed for reporters? What if one of them caught the coronavirus while covering CPAC?
Liars. Pence was asked.

They were yelling it as he left the room and he did not answer. But did not "refuse" or "storm" out. So if we're going to be real about what happened, let's be 100% real

Reporters did ask Pence if the president had been tested, to which he answered he didn’t know. Pence said he himself had not.
It's a systemic media psy op against President Trump

Shall we add @DailyMail to the fake news category?

We’d hate to because they’ve done good work, but this tweet is definitely fake news.
The left shill media are a disaster.

Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.
— Andrew Birchall (@slambama) March 9, 2020
Apparently so called news outlets can just make up anything they want and pretend it's news just to push the left's narrative. #givemeabreak

He did not storm out. He did not take any questions. There! Those are factual statements.

I always say thank you, walk slowly and acknowledge people when I’m in a apoplectic rage.

“Storms” out of the briefing ?????????

Trump REFUSES to say
— Steven Raposeiro (@stvrap79) March 9, 2020
Does he have a cough with a 103 degree fever? If not why be tested?
— Gary Smith (@garynada) March 9, 2020
He should have said yes, he’s got the virus. The little girl screams would be heard at the capital rotunda.

He is the ultimate troll … that would have been awesome. Make everyone in the media self-quarantine for 14 days. It’s not like they couldn’t still make stuff up from home.
PBS NewsHour journo conveniently leaves important context out of tweet about coronavirus testing kits to make Mike Pence look bad https://t.co/ltNMVSJrp1
