White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley corrected a CNN reporter who accused President Trump of lying about being in the Oval Office working.
Playboy White House reporter and CNN analyst Brian Karem accused President Trump of “another lie” for tweeting that he was in the Oval Office hard at work, but Gidley was not having it. Gidley reported that Trump actually was in the Oval Office working during the time period in question Monday, sourced from his own firsthand observation from inside the White House. Though some time lapsed between Karem’s tweet and Gidley’s correction, it is indisputable that President Trump is in the White House Monday working. Some time also lapsed between Trump’s original tweet and Karem’s response tweet.
I just looked into the Oval Office myself, and @POTUS was in fact sitting behind the Resolute Desk working. So, now I’m just waiting for you and the rest of your ilk to either stop jumping to false conclusions, correct the record, or, here’s a thought, call the press team to ask. https://t.co/uzIp0i7Dwo

CNN, where Karem is an analyst, is on a relative hot streak, on the heels of accusing active-duty U.S. military servicemen of possibly breaking Department of Defense rules for asking President Trump to sign their MAGA hats. Other notable scoops by CNN include the fact that a Reddit user named Han A**hole Solo posted a pro-President Trump meme. CNN threatened the meme-maker into silence.
The administration has been more active lately in calling out CNN.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto suffered an embarrassing beatdown on Twitter in mid-December after he was called out by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for blatantly lying.
“We are happy to provide the facts — but you never reached out. In fact, DHS prevented 3,755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling to or entering the U.S. in FY 17. That’s in addition to 17,526 criminals, 1,019 gang members, and 3,028 special interest aliens,” DHS spokesman Tyler Q. Houltan said, mocking the alleged news organization with its own #FactsFirst hashtag.
Sciutto claimed on his personal Twitter account, which has nearly 300,000 followers, that there was no evidence to support President Donald J. Trump’s claim that terrorists were crossing the southern United States border.
“The president has now twice used the threat of terrorism to justify the wall. Facts supplied by DHS don’t back that up,” Sciutto said.
The fake news reporter either neglected his journalistic duty to ask Homeland Security for statistics about terrorists crossing at the border, or simply lied because the lie fit his agenda of leftist activism.
Houlton noted that Sciutto “never reached out.”
This is the second very public embarrassment for Sciutto in 2018. He co-authored a piece claiming – through the use of anonymous sources – that Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen would testify that Trump knew in advance about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer linked to the Kremlin. One of the piece’s “anonymous sources” was Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis. Scuitto’s piece claimed that Davis had “declined to comment” for the story. Davis accidentally spilled the beans that he was the source of the story live on a CNN talk show. Oops.
This is CNN.

Vice President Mike Pence Addresses Coronavirus Concerns While Giving Address to CPAC
He started his speech by addressing coronavirus.
Vice President Mike Pence started his address on Thursday afternoon to the attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. by talking about the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus.
“President Donald Trump has no higher priority than the health, safety and well-being of the American people,” Pence said, referring to President Trump’s “unprecedented action” to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Pence said that all patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the U.S. have been treated and are doing well, but they will maintain on guard with the Vice President at the helm of the effort in the weeks to come.
“I promise you. We will continue to bring the full resources of the federal government to bear to protect the American people,” he said.
Pence said that the administration is looking to work in bipartisan fashion to stop the spread of coronavirus before launching into his promotion of the Trump/Pence ticket heading into this November’s election.
A group of hecklers were ushered out of the event yelling at Pence, as the crowd chanted “USA! USA! USA!” to drown out their jeers. One of the hecklers appeared to be dressed in a President Trump costume.
Pence compared Trump to former President Ronald Reagan, who addressed CPAC many times before his death in 2004.
“How great is it to have a President of the United States who embraces his role as leader of the free world?” Pence asked the attentive audience, adding that the world knows under Trump that “America stands with Israel.”
He also talked up the administration giving more healthcare options for veterans, increasing border security, supporting law enforcement and ICE against the far left, remaking the federal judiciary, and most importantly standing for the unborn.
“President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history,” Pence said to a massive ovation from the crowd.
Pence then went into promoting President Trump’s economic record, including tax cuts, regulatory reform, an energy policy overhaul, and revamped trade deals. After that, he took shots at the socialists running to oppose President Trump in November, calling their recent CBS News debate a “demolition derby.”
“The truth is today’s Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftists who want higher taxes, open borders and late-term abortions,” Pence said, adding that the party of Harry Truman and JFK is gone.
“Let’s be clear. It isn’t just about Bernie. Despite what the media loves to tell you, there are no moderates in this Democratic field. Everyone of the other Democrats embraces Bernie’s socialist agenda,” he contended.
Pence made the case it is not enough for President Trump to be re-elected, but a cultural shift must be enacted in order to keep capitalism as the economic system in America for the decades to come.
“It won’t be enough to win the next election. We have to win the next generation,” he said.
He closed his address with an impassioned defense of freedom, using Venezuela as an example of what the U.S. must never become. He expressed his belief that the current generation is one that is embracing freedom more and more.
“Ladies and gentlemen of CPAC 2020, President Donald Trump is the real deal. He is a man who says what he means and means what he says,” Pence said.
“I want to challenge you. I want to challenge all of you… Keep bringing your enthusiasm. Keep bringing this support,” he urged.
