In a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald Trump continued to slight the lame-stream media by giving the first question to David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Several “mainstream” journalists remarked on a “trend.”

After two joint press conferences giving US questions only to right-wing outlets, Trump now calls on Christian Broadcasting Network

The pattern continues. Trump goes to David Brody first.

It continues. @realDonaldTrump gives 1st Q to Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody.

David Brody of Christian Broadcasting Network first Q. This is looking like it's becoming pretty deliberate after last three pressers

Oh no! President Trump isn’t letting the “mainstream” journalists ask gotcha questions! Freak out!
Trump goes first to a press question from.... Christian Broadcasting Network (!)

Trump calls on Christian Broadcasting Network for staged question. #AmericanFascism

David Brody of CBN gets the first question. Gutless @realDonaldTrump won’t call on the mainstream media to ask a question. Scary stuff.

Wait what. Christian Broadcasting Network asked a question and Trump called him BB and BB made an Art of the Deal joke and oh faaaaacckk!!

It's hard to take these people seriously though.
People complain how Trump called on the Christian Broadcasting Network, but their reporter just smartly asked about both Flynn & settlements

They don’t care about the substance of the questions asked. The mainstream media wants to get the first question because they’re “mainstream.”
It’s refreshing to have a president who doesn’t care for that entitlement mentality.
