The New Trump Show -- 'I've Gotten to Like This Room'

To anybody suddenly tuning into the president’s press 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.

“… a gentleman,” Donald Trump intoned from inside the White House, invoking an antimalarial remedy called hydroxychloroquine, “they thought he was not going to make it. He said goodbye to his family. They had given him the drug just a little while before, but he thought it was over. His family thought he was going to die. And a number of hours later, he woke up, felt good. Then he woke up again, and he felt really good. And he’s in good shape. And he’s very happy …” The drug, if it works on Covid-19, would be, he said, “a gift from God.”

This brief, almost mystical tale came in the eight-minute mark of the first hour of another installment of what has become a new American serial drama.

Over the last two weeks, Trump has embarked on a striking chapter of his optics-obsessed presidency, turning the all-but-abandoned briefing room into the set of a largely unscripted television series that has gripped, worried and (depending on one’s political affiliation) infuriated viewers.

1. I watched 10 minutes of one Monday night

And I was so mad I wanted to walk outside and scream. All I heard were things about "the good book" and be sure to give to the local church...I had enough.

I'll pass on the 100 club spin off, with Pat's freak chat.

2. Me, me, me.

The 25th Amendment argument is rock solid.

4. Why do the republicans have all the 'Rat Fuckers' and Russian hackers?

Just think if the Fox News control room feed could be hacked, locking any and all control to the hacker, as they ran over and over and over the commercials about what tRUMP has really done to stop, slow, and mitigate COVID-19 from harming the United States. And also explain everything tRUMP has done to fail at any and every response he could have taken to protect the United States. Then show clips of the hardest hit areas about what is really happening, while warning that every community in the United States will eventually get to the same point, following up with the question...

'Why hasn't President Trump used the Defense Production Act to help stop COVID-19?'

5. Deep down they are all selfish to the core assholes?

I am amazed Fox News hasn't been burned to the ground many times over by now?

Shows me the hooligans are all Republicans, if we had ignorant temper challenged assholes in the numbers they do?

Are they for hire?
