Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 26, 2020

To anybody suddenly tuning into the president's news conference this Monday evening, it might have seemed like the leader of the free world was channeling an off-hours televangelist, taking advantage of a pandemic to offer a hazy tale of a miraculous cure.

"There's a sense," added Michael Caputo, a former Trump adviser, "of a cliffhanger at the end of every one"you can almost hear it at the close of every briefing, something straight out of, like, same bat-time, same bat-channel.'"

"With hundreds of millions of people justifiably freaked out and cooped up, cable news networks' ratings are rising. Some polls say Trump's approval ratings are doing the same. And these new daily doses of Trump keep getting longer. Slowly but surely, they're tending toward later in the day, too, edging into prime time, reportedly no accident.

Monday's was the longest one yet. It lasted 10 minutes shy of two hours, pushing into the 8 p.m. hour.

"I've gotten to like this room," Trump said."

The reality show presidency continues on Twitter:

Donald Trump Jr. March 26 "Anyone praising China's leadership' in responding that the virus should be scorned for being the authoritarian/communist propagandist that they are"

Donald Trump March 27 "Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China," the president tweeted. "Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!"

Audience: "Ooooooh!"
