...who voted for that asshole but are terrified of Covid because they know it will kill them... they don't have a lot of patience for his theatrics in this context.

33. If fauci is there he will have a gag and bit on.....

Trump only wants props, not actual science being spoken. Look, I think fauci is now just a dottering old fool trying to keep his job. But trump is evil, and he doesn't want even a hint of contradiction, so no fauci.

Brix seems to be his lapdog, so maybe he will let her be there.

19. Yep.

Trump says he is bringing back the daily coronavirus briefings starting tomorrow because they got good ratings. ďI was doing them and we had a lot of people watching, record numbers watching in the history of cable television, and thereís never been anything like it,Ē he says.

11. Jared Kushner and Hope Hicks can't get it through his thick skull:

Some of Mr. Trumpís closest advisers are adamant that the best way forward is to downplay the dangers of the disease. Mark Meadows, the chief of staff, has been particularly forceful in his view that the White House should avoid drawing attention to the virus, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Mr. Meadows has for the most part opposed any briefings about the virus, while other Trump advisers, including Hope Hicks and Jared Kushner, have been open to holding briefings so long as they are not at the White House ó where Mr. Trump could show up and commandeer them. Mr. Penceís team would like to hold more briefings with the health experts, but some of Mr. Trumpís communications aides do not want the vice president to be part of them.

20. Trump won't admit it,

But he was wrong about COVID-19. Poll after poll suggests Americans are thirsting for national leadership to tackle this. He thinks by being visible on this again, he can turn around these polls. WE know this is all theatre and NOTHING of substance will be said or acted on. Major gaslighting will take place while everything burns to the ground. Iím hopeful Americans will see through this sham.

I never watched any of them but was wondering if he might be trying to hog airtime. Joy Reid's show begins tonight, and IIRC she'll have Joe and Hillary on.

...but the networks have learned to cut away or cancel coverage when the briefings turn into rants or stream or consciousness monologues.

29. He really can't win in this...

If he holds the briefings he says idiotic things that make the situation worse. If he doesnít he is hated for showing zero leadership. This is what happens when you let the idiots at the bottom of the gene pool pick an idiot to be president.

38. Wondering if he will enforce the no mask rule for the press?

You can't attend if you wear a mask. He doesn't care - he has a curtain of hepa filtered air, oxygen enriched, between him and the seats. None of the bugs in the room will get to him while he is behind his podium.
