NY Gov. Cuomo called out at media for not showing President Trump respect
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo defended President Trump this week as the three-term Democratic governor indicated the media did not treat the president with the respect that the office commands.

Cuomo said during an interview with WAMC radio Monday that the press has taken on a “nastier tone,” which he has noticed at his press conferences and all across the nation, describing a “disrespect that never existed.”

“The way they question President Trump at some of these press conferences is just – I’ve never heard that tone with the president,” Cuomo said.

When asked by WAMC’s Alan Chartock whether the president “deserved it,” Cuomo said there is supposed to be a “decorum” to the institution – indicating that even if you do not like a person, you still respect the institution he or she represents.

“There are reporters who just are unprofessional, don’t know the facts and ask really biased questions,” Cuomo explained. “You want to say ‘well I don’t like the president and I disrespect him,’ I know but it’s still the office of the president.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.

White House reporters befuddled by brief Trump statement on stock market
White House reporters were left befuddled by President Donald Trump’s brief statement about the stock market Tuesday afternoon, with one remarking afterward it was “weird as s–t.”

Trump spoke in the White House briefing room for a little over a minute to tout the Dow Jones Industrial Average passing 30,000 for the first time, calling it a “sacred number” and congratulating the American people for the milestone. He then departed to shouted questions from assembled reporters.

A hot mic on CSPAN caught reporters sharing their surprised reactions after Trump left, with one saying, “that was weird as s**t.” Another appeared to say it was “one of the stranger” briefings he had attended. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Los Angeles mayor tells residents to cancel non-essential travel ahead of Thanksgiving
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told residents Tuesday to cancel all non-essential travel as coronavirus cases surge in California.

This comes days before the Thanksgiving holiday, which the L.A. County Department of Public Health is “strongly” recommending people only spend with other members of their household.

“Please don’t plan, host or attend holiday gatherings for multiple households,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health said in new guidance Tuesday. “Instead connect virtually together.”

Anyone flying into LAX or Van Nuys airport also is being asked to sign a form acknowledging that they need to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

“Failure to submit the form is punishable by a fine of up to $500,” the traveler form says. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Tucker Carlson asked viewers in Tuesday night’s opening monologue of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” what exactly does President-elect Joe Biden believe?

“What are his plans for our country,” Carlson asked. “Biden made it through most of his campaign…without telling us. A partisan press corps let him get away with it. Tens of millions of people voted for a candidate who wasn’t real. Joe Biden has started assembling his cabinet, so we’re going to go by his chooses to let us know what we can expect.”
