1. I like the cross examination version better:

VIDEO3/ First, imagine the cross-examination version:

REPORTER: "On March 1, the death toll internationally was [X]. Ventilators were requested March [Y]. It's inexplicable."

(Y = a number far higher than "1."

Also, no need to start with "Mr. President..." He knows who he is.

2. Fascinating article.

Many years ago, I knew a woman who was actually a mostly pleasant person but who had an unfortunate compulsion to always one-up you in a conversation. I made it my goal in life to pick topics where one-upping was impossible or at least unrewarding.

"Man, I woke up this morning, I really looked like hell!"

3. trumpie has totally lost it.

No network should carry this waste of time.

He answers no questions, displays no leadership and now he's pitching certain death to people by pushing a dangerous "cure."

My dog has more medical experience than he does.

7. Brilliant!

.

Often, before a journalist has managed to get more than five words out, they're interrupted.


"Trump doesn't much analyze a question's *content*; rather, he listens to a question merely to determine—and this is key—the *earliest possible moment he can interrupt his interviewer* and begin speaking about whatever it is that *he* wants to speak about."
