Reporter mentioned to Trump today about spikes in people using disinfectants after his comments. Trump's response: "I can't imagine why".

 

Because he doesn't ever take responsibility.

260,000 Words, Full of Self-Praise, From Trump on the Virus.

 

 

The New York Times analyzed every word Mr. Trump spoke at his White House briefings and other presidential remarks on the virus — more than 260,000 words — from March 9, when the outbreak began leading to widespread disruptions in daily life, through mid-April. The transcripts show striking patterns and repetitions in the messages he has conveyed, revealing a display of presidential hubris and self-pity unlike anything historians say they have seen before.

 

 

By far the most recurring utterances from Mr. Trump in the briefings are self-congratulations, roughly 600 of them, which are often predicated on exaggerations and falsehoods. He does credit others (more than 360 times) for their work, but he also blames others (more than 110 times) for inadequacies in the state and federal response.

"President’s intelligence briefing book repeatedly cited virus threat"

 

 

U.S. intelligence agencies issued warnings about the novel coronavirus in more than a dozen classified briefings prepared for President Trump in January and February, months during which he continued to play down the threat, according to current and former U.S. officials.

 

The repeated warnings were conveyed in issues of the President’s Daily Brief, a sensitive report that is produced before dawn each day and designed to call the president’s attention to the most significant global developments and security threats.

 

For weeks, the PDB — as the report is known — traced the virus’s spread around the globe, made clear that China was suppressing information about the contagion’s transmissibility and lethal toll, and raised the prospect of dire political and economic consequences.

 

But the alarms appear to have failed to register with the president, who routinely skips reading the PDB and has at times shown little patience for even the oral summary he takes two or three times per week, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified material.

President’s intelligence briefing

 

 

And the inherent contradiction in that sentence shows why things got so screwed up.

Donald Trump is an oxymoron.

Unfortunately as we all know, the only Republicans who matter are the ones in the cabinet and the Senate. And they're all in the Trump handbasket.

Only need to swing one or two percent of them - and it's bye-bye Donny in November.  Rasmussen have him 10 points down.  Because of the way voter suppression works, Rasmussen's polls of "likely voters" rather than "eligible/registered" voters have been quite accurate.  I hate it - but it's been true.

I don't know if that's really a good thing though, the chief clown may have been pushed out - barely - but the entire rest of the flying circus is still in full swing. Imagine if Mussolini or Hitler or whatever had been voted out by a 1% margin, that's not a reassuring rejection by the voters of an abhorrent political system, it's just a slight downturn in one individual's support.

Trump surrounds himself with snakes. The moment they decide that their self-interest lies elsewhere, he will be history.
