According to that article, his approval rating has actually gone up! How can that possibly be? Are Americans infected by an IQ virus?

The Washington Post - The media must stop live-broadcasting Trump’s dangerous, destructive coronavirus briefings

 

March 22, 2020 

 


More and more each day, President Trump is using his daily briefings as a substitute for the campaign rallies that have been forced into extinction by the spread of the novel coronavirus.

 

These White House sessions - ostensibly meant to give the public critical and truthful information about this frightening crisis - are in fact working against that end.

 

Rather, they have become a daily stage for Trump to play his greatest hits to captive audience members. 

 

They come in search of life-or-death information, but here’s what they get from him instead:

 

[headings only]

 

● Self-aggrandizement.
● Media-bashing.
● Exaggeration and outright lies.

 

... The news media, at this dangerous and unprecedented moment in world history, must put the highest priority on getting truthful information to the public.

 

Taking Trump’s press conferences as a live feed works against that core purpose.

FAUCI REPORTS THAT ALCOHOL HELPS PEOPLE SURVIVE CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “promising development,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that alcohol helps people survive the most severe effects of coronavirus briefings.

 

Noting that millions of Americans have been exposed to the daily briefings of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, Fauci said that he had voluntarily submitted to a preliminary trial of the alcohol-based therapy.

 

“What we found was that a single dosage before the briefing and as much as a double dosage after the briefing do much to alleviate even acute suffering,” Fauci said. "However, additional doses administered during the briefings will provide the most relief."

 

Fauci’s findings are in line with anecdotal reports which indicate that, since November 2016, many Americans have successfully used this method to alleviate the stress caused by White House briefings on any subject. 

 

 





'Ask not what you can do for your country: ask what you can do for me'. Donald J.Trump. US President 2016 - 2020.

The Washington Post - Coronavirus Updates

 


today

 


 ... Trump seems to be weighing whether to loosen restrictions on social distancing to boost the economy, tweeting on Sunday “WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF." 

 

But this goes directly against what his own health experts are telling him, which is that scaling back distancing measures could devastate hospitals. 

 

“We really, really need everyone to stay at home," Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said Monday. "There are not enough people out there who are taking this seriously.”

 

The U.S. is reporting over 41,000 cases with more than 500 deaths. Monday was the first day the U.S. reported more than 100 deaths in a single day. ...

Really love Borowitz but I've found it harder to laugh when I realise how Trump is moving from buffoon to killer.

 

And watching those Trump supporters being interviewed by Klepper made me truly despair for the USA and the world. May our border controls stay in place.
