Once again, the mainstream media is proving what an absolute circus they can cause over a mere meeting between two people: House Speaker Paul Ryan and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
At one point, MSNBC actually had a countdown clock solely designated for the Ryan/Trump meeting at Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters, hyping it as a “Face to Face.”
In case you don’t believe it, take a look:
As if it wasn’t bad enough that the mainstream media is hyping up a simple meeting between GOP leaders, the firestorm outside RNC headquarters that included protesters and supporters was just as crazy today:

And naturally, every single news network followed second-to-second coverage of the meeting, with “breaking news” alerts from the minute Trump arrived, until the meeting ended.
Here’s just a few snapshots of the coverage prior to the meeting:

All of this anticipation build-up for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to come and call the meeting… “very positive.” You can almost hear the sad trombone playing in the background. But, many folks jumped on the statement, saying it was meant gloss over the issues.
Here’s Priebus’ statement:
The meeting was great. It was a very positive step toward party unity.

Here’s the public not buying what Preibus is trying to sell:
“Very positive step,” is a good start, but doesn’t sound like an endorsement today. https://t.co/9MwQz2XOf4
