I only saw a bit of it, but Prznint Stable Jenius had another nutty at his press conference yesterday. All could think of is how Sarah Cooper has enough new material to last for at least another pandemic news cycle.
Even Mrs. Alan Greenspan…
Some advice for Mrs. Greenspan: then stop covering them. Pretty straightforward. Even CNN(!) cut away when it became clear that this was a campaign rally.
Per Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie:
— TRUMP gave an at-times incoherent — and to some aides, alarming — Rose Garden news conference Tuesday evening. NYT’S PETER BAKER, a top chronicler of four presidents, said: “Even for a president who rarely sticks to the script and wanders from thought to thought, it was one of the most rambling performances of his presidency.”
BAKER,on A17: “He weighed in on China and the coronavirus and the Paris climate change accord and crumbling highways. And then China again and military spending and then China again and then the coronavirus again. And the economy and energy taxes and trade with Europe and illegal immigration and his friendship with Mexico’s president. And the coronavirus again and then immigration again and crime in Chicago and the death penalty and back to climate change and education and historical statues. And more. …
“At times, it was hard to understand what he meant. He seemed to suggest that his presumptive Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., would get rid of windows if elected and later said that Mr. Biden would ‘abolish the suburbs.’ He complained that Mr. Biden had ‘gone so far right.’ (He meant left.) …
“For instance, in discussing cooperation agreements with Central American countries to stop illegal immigration, he had this to say: ‘We have great agreements where when Biden and Obama used to bring killers out, they would say don’t bring them back to our country, we don’t want them. Well, we have to, we don’t want them. They wouldn’t take them. Now with us, they take them. Someday, I’ll tell you why. Someday, I’ll tell you why.
“‘But they take them and they take them very gladly. They used to bring them out and they wouldn’t even let the airplanes land if they brought them back by airplanes. They wouldn’t let the buses into their country. They said we don’t want them. Said no, but they entered our country illegally and they’re murderers, they’re killers in some cases.’”
When will the press learn? Don’t cover thse things live and if Lord Damp Nut says anything news worthy, fact-check it and cover it on the evening news. He’s playing the media for suckers, rightly so, instead of buying airtime.
