In a move that rocked the national media establishment and sent shock waves through the Democratic ranks, President Trump declared houses of worship essential during a press conference at the White House on Friday.
In a warning to would-be petty dictators in governors’ offices from California to Michigan to New York, Trump left no doubt.
“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend,” Trump said.
“If they don’t do it, I will override the governors.”
The announcement left the media clamoring for answers. Trump, having said his piece, ignored them and walked away from the podium. It was a stirring and symbolic moment.
It’s time for the American people to follow Trump’s lead. Walk away from the media.
