Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) has the details:
President Donald Trump on Saturday made his first public appearance since returning from a three-day hospitalization due to coronavirus, addressing hundreds of Black and Latino supporters crowded together on the White House lawn.
“First of all, I’m feeling great. I don’t know about you,” Trump told the estimated audience of 500 who, despite wearing masks, were packed together below the Truman Balcony where he spoke. According to a person familiar with the event, more than 2,000 guests had been invited.
Hmmm, attendance dropped by 75% and they STILL were packed in cheek-to-jowl, and that’s an expression you never want to contemplate given what Cheetolini’s supporters from Possum Hollar look like. But I digest:
Trump kept his comments to the cheering crowd shorter than usual, speaking for less than 17 minutes a day after going for nearly two hours on a talk radio show. The event, billed by the White House as a “peaceful protest” for law and order, was organized by right-wing activist Candace Owens and her group Blexit.
So both of the planned, great big cancelled rallies were cancelled for a 17 minute preening session instead of the usual 90, and for which he did not have to travel to attend.
But, you know, all is well.
