Hey guys, remember that time when Prznint Stupid told us that he “said to [his] people, slow the testing down please!” and the White House tried to play it off as a joke and then he spent the next month proving it was not a joke?
Good times, huh?
The 4th Reich allegedly is objecting to provisions in Senate Republicans’ Trump-Virus relief bill that would allocate $25B Ameros to testing and contact tracing, as well as funding to shore up federal health agencies.
But never fear, Doctor Stupid is planning to resume his daily coronavirus briefings today because he thinks it’ll help his poll numbers, and because no one will come to his super-spreader rallies anymore.
Today’s Press Run:
“With the looming return of the briefings, everyone in the news business knows Trump is going to lie nonstop, because he has lied nonstop about the public health crisis for four months. “No country has ever done what we’ve done in terms of testing. We are the envy of the world,” he lied over the weekend, adding “The Democrats are purposely keeping their schools closed, keeping their states closed.” These are the kind of mindless utterances that are guaranteed to punctuate his briefings. What’s the point of airing them live and in full to a national audience? There’s absolutely no news value attached to this reckless exercise…
“The solution today isn’t difficult to figure out — news outlets cover the briefings and relay any important, factual information. But let C-Span air the briefings from beginning to end. There’s no reason to give Trump an unobstructed, national platform to lie about a pandemic. It’s the height of irresponsibility because TV executives know Trump cannot be trusted.”
But you know it won’t happen because our failed political press (CNN et al) is addicted to Prznint Stupid and sees him as a dramatic personae in their daily ratings chase. They will follow up any bleating and mewling he does with another one of their Powerhouse Panels of shouty people saying nothing, but saying it loudly.
