    Trump Cuts US Ties to World Health Organization, Ends Briefing Without Taking Questions

    President Donald Trump announced on Friday he was severing the United States’ relationship with the World Health Organization, claiming China had “total control” over the organization and pressured the body to “mislead the world” about the COVID-19 pandemic. He then left the scheduled press conference without answering any questions.Trump also said the U.S. would be revoking Hong Kong’s special trade and customs treatment and would be suspending the entry of Chinese citizens who were identified as “potential security risks.” The president did not detail what those “potential security risks” were or how they would be determined, and reporters did not have the opportunity to ask for clarification given that Trump left the podium abruptly after his statement.Trump’s announcement — and subsequent departure from the White House’s Rose Garden — comes two days after the U.S. surpassed 100,000 COVID-19 deaths and a day after he tweeted about “shooting” protesters in Minneapolis, writing, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” (The tweet received a content warning from Twitter for “glorifying violence.”)Also Read: Twitter Hits Trump With Content Warning for Tweet 'Glorifying Violence'The president did not comment at all on the protests in Minneapolis or the murder charge filed against the former police officer who choked George Floyd with his knee for several minutes, causing his death.Read original story Trump Cuts US Ties to World Health Organization, Ends Briefing Without Taking Questions At TheWrap

    How IFC Films’ Bet on Drive-In Theaters Paid Off During the Pandemic

    As movie theaters across the country began to shut down two months ago, IFC Films made the risky decision not to cancel or postpone its slate of indie and art house film releases, while also pivoting to the handful of drive-in theaters that are still open around the country. The good news: The decision is paying off since IFC had some of the only new releases playing in theaters anywhere. The horror film “The Wretched,” for instance, has grossed $621,000 in four weeks on less than 60 screens — which would make it one of the Top 20 grossing films on IFC’s slate for each year going back to 2016. Now entering into its 20th year, IFC continues to use the same digital, VOD strategy it always has. “Our business, in particular, is an interesting intersection of whole services that are designed to be viewed at home or on-the-go or in theaters and then in an integrated fashion as well,” Lisa Schwartz, IFC Films co-president, told TheWrap. “So I think it gave us an opportunity to flex some familiar muscle, which is being able to really be nimble and pivot and put emphasis on different platforms.” Also Read: Margaret Qualley...Read original story How IFC Films’ Bet on Drive-In Theaters Paid Off During the Pandemic At TheWrap

    MSNBC’s Cal Perry Called Out People on Air for Not Wearing Masks — and It Didn’t Go Well

    During a Memorial Day live shot in Wisconsin on MSNBC, reporter Cal Perry got some instant feedback when he pointed out that seemingly no one around him at Lake Geneva was wearing a protective face mask.“Including the cameraman,” said a man who was walking by. He added that no one in Perry’s crew seemed to be wearing one.The sassy retort from the mask-less lake-goer took place while Perry spoke live to anchor Katy Tur and soon got pickup around Twitter. Donald Trump Jr. even retweeted a clip of the moment published by the Daily Caller, shown below.An MSNBC spokesperson acknowledged that the camera operator’s mask was slipped down around his neck at the time the interaction took place. The crew and Perry have been traveling the country in a set of RVs, socially distancing and avoiding airplanes and hotels while reporting on coronavirus precautions and businesses re-opening in various states. Perry elaborated on Twitter that numerous people traveled from Illinois for the long weekend specifically because masks are required in Illinois, but not Wisconsin.Also Read: Anderson Cooper: Donald Trump Jr. Attacks CNN Because He 'Wants His Dad to Love Him' (Video)Trump Jr. is no stranger to tweeting out pictures and clips that don’t show national news outlets in the best light. Earlier in May, he responded to criticism from CNN’s Anderson Cooper by posting a picture of the journalist in waist-high floodwater while his camera crew filmed from a higher, less flooded area. The president’s son added two emojis — a clown and a banana — to his tweet.Trump Jr. has tweeted the photo of Cooper before. In 2018, Cooper responded on his show at the time, “I’ve covered hurricanes for about 14 years and it really does make me sad to think that anyone would believe that I would try to fake something or overly-dramatize a disaster.”Watch Perry’s MSNBC moment below.REPORTER: "You can see here, nobody's wearing [masks]."GUY ON STREET: "Including the Cameraman."pic.twitter.com/yMikEFrJMQ— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) May 26, 2020Read original story MSNBC’s Cal Perry Called Out People on Air for Not Wearing Masks — and It Didn’t Go Well At TheWrap
