President Trump led a press conference featuring VP Mike Pence, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci and others working on the White House’s coronavirus response team.
There have been reports in the media that Dr. Fauci was being “muzzled” by Trump. The president was asked about it but let Dr. Fauci field the question instead. The media no doubt did not get what they were hoping for:
Reporter to President Trump: Why have you been muzzling Doctor Fauci?
Dr. Fauci: I’ve never been muzzled and I’ve been doing this since Reagan.

In other words, Dr. Fauci put some more “fake news” to rest here:
A reporter just asked President Trump: Why have you been muzzling Doctor Fauci?
"I’ve never been muzzled and I’ve been doing this since Reagan." Doctor Fauci responded. pic.twitter.com/qqqavAT4GR

And with that the media will move onto a different talking point without learning a lesson.
Another embarrassing moment for the mainstream news.
