When last we left you with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the House Intel Chair was confirming on MSNBC that he was conducting “real-time oversight” of the Trump administration’s response to the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. This was code for: Welcome to our attempt to impeach the president, part 3.

But Schiff’s so-called “oversight” apparently does not extend to watching the White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefings live, which he jumped on the Twitter machine tonight to complain about:

Schiff’s opinion, of course, sounds almost word for word what you hear from CNN and MSNBC anchors about the briefings. They don’t want to air them live, they claim, because they believe Trump is using them as substitutes for campaign rallies, because he can’t have any of those right now due to the crisis. It’s “propaganda”, they allege, all while completely lacking in any self-awareness whatsoever.

The real reason, of course, is that SchiffCo. and his pals in the press don’t want to air the press briefings live because they’re absent the media filter and Democrat spin machine. Instead of hearing the media’s translation of events, which is often (deliberately) flawed, you get to hear the information about what’s going on straight from the sources – Trump, and the rest of the task force.

Then you get to form your own opinions. But for the Adam Schiffs of the world, we simply cannot have that.

Twitter users let Schiff have it in response:

Seriously, when you consider the source
