The New York Times - Nervous Republicans See Trump Sinking, and Taking The Senate With Him

 

today

 


WASHINGTON - President Trump’s erratic handling of the coronavirus outbreak, the worsening economy and a cascade of ominous public and private polling have Republicans increasingly nervous that they are at risk of losing the presidency and the Senate if Mr. Trump does not put the nation on a radically improved course.

 

The scale of the G.O.P.’s challenge has crystallized in the last week. 

 

With 26 million Americans now having filed for unemployment benefits, Mr. Trump’s standing in states that he carried in 2016 looks increasingly wobbly: New surveys show him trailing significantly in battleground states like Michigan and Pennsylvania, and he is even narrowly behind in must-win Florida. ...

 

Perhaps most significantly, Mr. Trump’s single best advantage as an incumbent - his access to the bully pulpit - has effectively become a platform for self-sabotage.  

 

His daily news briefings on the coronavirus outbreak are inflicting grave damage on his political standing, Republicans believe, and his recent remarks about combating the virus with sunlight and disinfectant were a breaking point for a number of senior party officials. ...

Yay yay yay! I knew I could count on Trump's capacity for shooting himself in the foot! Way to go Mr President! Keep up the good work!

The Washington Post -  13 hours of Trump: The president fills briefings with attacks and boasts, but little empathy

 

today

 

 

What began as daily briefings meant to convey public health information have become de facto political rallies conducted from the West Wing of the White House - events that are now in doubt after an uproar last week over Trump’s suggestion of another bogus coronavirus cure. ...

 

Trump has spoken for more than 28 hours in the 35 briefings held since March 16, eating up 60 percent of the time that officials spoke, according to a Washington Post analysis of annotated transcripts from Factba.se, a data analytics company.

 

Over the past three weeks, the tally comes to more than 13 hours of Trump - including two hours spent on attacks and 45 minutes praising himself and his administration, but just 4½ minutes expressing condolences for coronavirus victims. ...

 

Trump’s freewheeling approach ended in a political crisis this past week, after the president’s dangerous suggestion at a briefing Thursday that injecting bleach or other disinfectants might cure the coronavirus - “almost as a cleaning.” 

 

The remarks set off a government-wide scramble and led to Trump telling aides Friday he would skip briefings this weekend. 

 

White House officials say privately they are considering scaling back the events entirely. ...

When the doofus is allowed to play with his phone, then spaghetti.
His aides have to follow up and delete his tweets.
(unfortunately for the doofus and his nazi aides, his tweets are archived for eternity)

 

 

It's possible that "Noble" might be a misspelling of "Nobel" but maybe he meant "Pulitzer".

He is definitely confusing and misspelling the prizes. Why except anything other from him? He is a semi-literate moron and everyone except his arse-suckers (even some of them) knows it. Trump's only redeeming virtue is he is too stupid to comprehend how stupid he is, so he feels no shame about broadcasting it to the world. The more he shoots himself in the foot, the better for us all. I say let him keep braying. Do everything to amplify and broadcast it. At some point even the brain-challenged deplorables will start to get the message. They already are.

Trump: "When will all of the 'reporters' who have received Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia, only to have been proven totally wrong (and, in fact, it was the other side who committed the crimes), be turning back their cherished 'Nobles'..."

I guess it'll be the day after Rush Limbaugh returns his "medal of freedom"

Interesting writeup of why it's so difficult for journalists to effectively intereview Trump.

 

 

(I say "journalists" here, propagandists like Fox have no problem with it).
