Did I hear that correctly? Trump decided not to shut down virus task group because it's "popular"?

I can read soooo much into that.

2. Their ratings were huge!

They had the bigliest ratings!

I bet trump starts doing dailies again. I hope so, because it kills his polling.

3. He also so said that he would be adding new staff

to focus on reopening the country.

So the science guys are going to be muzzled while Trump's hand picked political operatives take over to push his economic agenda. He has to rebuild his one remaining chance at getting re-elected on a strong economy, and the virus task group was like a monkey wrench blocking his campaign messaging.

8. Maybe.Trump will rent space on the podium for ads, charge CEOs to stand on stage to peddle

their products, sell airtime to run commercials from the stage monitor, the My Pillow guy could even begin each briefing with a prayer.

4. that's why he decided to join the daily pressers in the first place

because he saw how popular (i.e., ratings) they were.

6. Just let him have his Nazi rallies

It’ll feed his ego and keep him off the air. And his followers will be the most affected. On second thought the ones that survive will be exceedingly smug about it. They’d be the sorts to go around breathing on people and spitting at them. I could quickly lead to violence which trump would love and support. The best thing would be for trump and his inner circle to catch it.

7. I Heard He Said 'People Enjoyed It'......

Now that's just sick. People didn't enjoy it - he did.

9. He counts himselves

He stuck three fingers up in the air and counted, “Me, myself and I”. That’s three people.

10. It's not because it's "popular"

but because it's still needed. This whole thing isn't over by a longshot, even if Trump wants it to be.

He’s the one that said “popular”.

13. It's all about the ratings. Plus it jacks up the price of all the stolen PPE Jared wants to fence.

Definitely not about human lives.
