MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): When the press, on one hand, say "Why don't you wear a mask? Why don't do you greater things to protect yourself?" and then they start doing more testing. And now they complain and they say well, you know, you get more tests than anybody else. I think the president was absolutely right to walk out on these goons. They are not interested in getting information so that they can parlay that to the public. They are interested in trying to play the gotcha game.
This is a president who is working around the clock along with his team to try to deal with a just incredible challenge and I think we are all seeing that we have taken these incredible steps to protect people but I don't care what he does. It's never going to be enough. Maybe they should every day on television take a swab and jam it up the nostrils of every reporter and make sure that they're tested on live television. And I would imagine that the president would enjoy applying that swab up their nostrils if he had half a chance.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): So many gotcha questions yesterday, and the president finally said I'm out. Forget it. This press conference is over. What was your reaction to that?
MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Applause. Cheers. Hallelujahs. You know, he needs to just not put up with this nonsense anymore. If the press want to be respected, then they need to treat the presidency with some level of respect -- which they haven't since President Trump took the oath of office. And, you know, I don't think he owes them any sense of time and effort when they are showing such a lack of respect for him, his office, the White House, and even the coronavirus.
They are more interested in the political games that they may be able to win for their friends in the Democratic Party than they are to pass information onto the American people. So maybe the president should invite local reporters from around the country to come to the White House for the press briefings, leave these Washington press corps people completely on the sidelines, because they have disgraced themselves and their profession by the way they've behaved.
