On Friday morning, Donald Trump was set to hold a press conference on the whole birther issue that was rehashed by a Washington Post “reporter” (Hillary acolyte), and a CNN host was left in utter shock after Trump did the last thing the liberal media expected.
Of course, coverage of the event was fueled by the liberal media’s blood lust for Trump and their desire to attack him whenever they can, but they didn’t realize they were in for a nice little surprise from the brilliant billionaire. Aware that every major media outlet was going to be tuning in, Trump held his press conference at his new hotel in Washington, D.C., and used the opportunity to have numerous veterans endorse him.
In fact, the entire event turned out to be nothing more than an infomercial for the Trump campaign, and the leftist hacks in the media threw a fit over it. However, none were as surprised as CNN’s John King, who flat out admitted that he and the rest of Hillary’s sycophants were played by The Donald.

“We got played, again, by the Trump campaign.” — John King just now on CNN.

Trump mastery — While waiting for birther statement, MSNBC has been holding for 30 minutes on our nation's heroes praising Trump.

It would appear @realDonaldTrump has snookered the Birther-obsessed media into covering his veterans’ event and giving voice to the warriors

Isn’t that awesome? Apparently the reporters at the event were none too happy either, and actually stood on chairs to try to interrupt Trump as he allowed our nation’s heroes to speak on his behalf.
Networks going to stick with Trump as he tries to cloak his racist birtherism in the herosim and service of these vets?

Once again Trump manages to guarantee live cable coverage of a promotion for his new hotel

Standing on chairs, he saw us above the crowd. Still refused to answer questions or acknowledge. https://t.co/bkDzVKz1ig

Haha, awesome. This is what happens when the media refuses to cover substantive issues and instead runs interference for one candidate in particular.
Oh, and if you’re wondering whether or not Trump addressed the birther issue? He did, and he did it with a mic drop moment.
At the end of the presser, he simply stated that “Obama was born in America,” putting the issue to rest and taking this line of attack away from the left before walking out of the room without taking any questions.
Is it not awesome watching the press get played like a fiddle?
