Trump shows up late again and repeats the same spin, not acknowledging the lead in deaths. The real headlines will come from more Trump mistakes, like well-wishing Ghislaine Maxwell and mentioning Price Andrew, as well as continuing the same campaign speech lies.

He’s opened with prepared remarks and makes the usual framing.

The real test will be surviving the questioning.

Q: isn’t wearing a mask patriotic?

Trump goes bafflegab about mask-wearing, say he has no problem wearing it.

follow-up: what about your visit last night to your hotel where you weren’t wearing it?

Trump goes blah-blah “I wear it when appropriate”

Q: resurgence is real?

Trump goes blah-blah talks about Florida and Texas.

Q: Chinese Covid vaccine?

Why does it sound like he’s talking about aunt Millie’s wart on her big toe. I heard people talk with more enthusiasm about drying paint. Let me know what happens. I want to go hit my fingers with a hammer and will be to busy to wait for the commercials.
