President Donald J. Trump had a press conference at his Bedminster New Jersey golf club, Thursday Night and the radical left media was in a high alert outrage the entire time, but especially after a reporter asked a question about the people in attendance in the audience, who the reporter said were maskless.
REPORTER: “Just in this room, you have dozens of people who are not following the guidelines…
“They are having a peaceful protest,” Trump responded. “This is a political activity.”
Country Club attendees boo a reporter after he points out a lack of mask wearing & social distancing, Trump claims attendees are in clear because it's "political activity" and "peaceful protest," says attendees are protesting the "fake news." pic.twitter.com/NHZDu4evcg

The Media was upset:
Wow. A reporter points out many club members in the room aren't wearing mask, violating guidelines.
The crowd boos the reporter.
"Because it's a political activity they have exceptions" and it's "also a peaceful protest," Trump said.
The crowd, full of wealthy members, cheers.

Reporters were prepared to be upset.
White House press pool, upon arriving at Bedminster for the president’s news conference, had our temperatures checked but have not had COVID-19 tests.
And it appears that several dozen country club members just came downstairs to watch Trump

After pool reporters tweeted that guests were not adhering to New Jersey COVID-19 regulations, club members were given masks to wear.

Investigative Journalists did more research on New Jersey Masks than they did on Obamagate or Crossfire Hurricane.
