President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that his daily coronavirus briefings were not worth his time, two days after sparking a furor by suggesting patients might be injected with disinfectant to kill an infection.

Not worth the time & effort!

What effort? He walks in there spoiling for a fight with the media, without any preparation, and shoots from the hip.

Weird flex, after a solid decade of time and effort on Twitter.

He's cracking.

If the premature state re-openings don't go well, he'll break down and republican "leaders" will be forced to take action. They're gonna wish they'd gone with impeachment.

Pres Trump cannot deal with the reporters asking him questions that he has to answer on camera.

Pres Trump cannot deal with those who question him. That has been shown time and time again.

I had thought this was already established as a given.

The question is not about Pres Trump canceling the White House Press Briefings.

The question is why Pres Trump cannot handle questions from the press.

Really, why does the Constitution mention the Press in the First Amendment?

(and, when you think about it, the First Amendment comes before the Second Amendment. Now that is something to think about.)

I suspect many if not most already do, they just can't figure out how to rid themselves of Trump and not hand it all over to Pelosi.
We're a lot closer to our first woman President than we realize!

Yeah, that.

How long will this last? A week at most, when others start getting more attention and he doesn't have his rallies to boost his fragile ego, he will be back. Like jock itch.

"Trump rallies by the end of May."

Pence has recently predicted that much of the country will re-open by Memorial Day, so, yeah, that sounds about right.

Bye-bye Dr. Birx, it was nice knowing you:

Dr. Deborah Birx Says Social Distancing Must Continue Through Summer Months

Birx responded Sunday morning to Vice President Mike Pence's prediction last week that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic will largely be over by Memorial Day after Meet the Press host Chuck Todd incredulously asked: "This Memorial Day 2020? Is that realistic?" The immunology and global health expert said current U.S. tracking models "give us great hope" that COVID-19 cases and deaths will be waning by the May 25 holiday weekend. But she said social distancing practices must be maintained through the entire summer to help prevent any potential outbreaks of COVID-19.

She really damaged herself working for Trump. She should have quit. Maybe she made the mistake of thinking she could do more good on the inside than out?

Good.

Went to his twitter feed to see it for myself. The guy is a bigger idiot than I imagined.

Apparently we have so many big beautiful brand new ventilators we're going to ship them to other countries who need them.

Probably where our medical supplies are going as well. Wonder how long it'll be before we find out the strings attached personally benefit him and his cronies.

She shouldn't have just quit, she should have jumped out of her chair and gone of on Donald Trump's idiocy when he recommended injecting insecticides. She should have screamed that he was talking crazy talk because he is f*****g crazy. Bat S*8t crazy! Most of us know that but our leaders in the Senate refuse to do anything about it. The Senate is costing us thousands of lives because of their unwillingness to do what is obviously necessary. Their own lives will be somehow affected by their sins. I just wish for Karma on every Republican Senator.
Those evil pieces of filth should have to atone for their crimes against the rest of us.

He'll be back, with a new lineup.
Ratings will be yuge. Yuuuge ratings.
Biggest ratings since 9/11.

Let me shift gears a little bit and criticize the press for doing their job so poorly. And yes I realize some are trying to call him on the carpet, but that won't work.

When Trump says these outrageous things, the press needs to break into uncontrollable laughter.

Remember when Ahmadinejad told the UN there were no gay people in Iran? Stunned silence, then waves of laughter. We're missing the laughter, and it's key.

Laughter is a highly appropriate response to this kind of delusional autocrat.

By letting him answer questions and getting scrappy with reporters, Deplorables can still pretend he's being a leader.

Got a quote for "insecticides" or did you confuse it with antiseptic?

#22 | Posted by Scotty at 2020-04-26 01:12 PM | Reply

If I had the time... wait nevermind.

If I had the inclination, I would take all these pandemic press briefings from day one, and re-release them with a laugh track added.

That's a million dollar idea right there.

It's finally dawning on Trumpy and his handlers that turning his task force briefings into trump campaign rallies for him to rally his deplorables is not working on the rest of us.

He probably spends two hours in hair and makeup every morning, that's the effort he's talking about. Now he can spend all day every day sitting in his bathrobe in the residence, watching cable news and rage tweeting like the madman he is.

"It's finally dawning on Trumpy and his handlers that turning his task force briefings into trump campaign rallies for him to rally his deplorables is not working on the rest of us."

Do ya' think?

That will make Mitch's job much easier. He's the one who has to break the news. Trump's not inclined to fix things that he doesn't think is broken.

Anyway, he thinks it's the media's fault so he's going to punish them. That's too bad, too because Trump was very good at writing Joe Biden's campaign script for him (with video).

I can't wait for the montage.

That is where America gets its REAL updates anyway.

The republicl0wn in chief gots himself a butt hurt when prompted to deliver cogency. It is clear to the world he was desperate to deliver the appearance of being involved with the goings on in an important way... funn-eh thang tho... the big orange stable genius doesn't have the chops and he tried to fake it with the word salad antics... and he looked out of touch with reality.

He is trying to show he is up to speed when he isn't even in the race because the golf cart didn't take him there. This is way worse than a "My Pet Goat" moment.
