On Sunday evening, Donald Trump held another controversial briefing from the White House Coronavirus task force, praise of the federal government of Andrew Cuomo, for example, and of course ignoring the many harsh criticisms of the Governor of New York. The report from Washington office chief David Smith is here:
There is a briefing on the White House program for Monday, 5 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “There was this famous Daily News cover that said” Ford to City: Drop Dead “.” So my question is, Mr. Trump, Mr. President, are you going to save New York City or are you telling New York to fall dead? Which one is it? “
For what could be classified in a lighter reading, pending, at least for the British, a new twist on the old American political adage, “What’s wrong with Kansas? “If like me you wake up regularly asking yourself what’s wrong with Piers Morgan?, it seems that the problem today is that the first British fan of Trump is … not a fan of the way the President is handling the pandemic.
This is from Reliable Sources of CNN, where Morgan said he was watching Trump’s progress with “growing horror,” and also spoke directly to the president:
He turns these briefings into self-aggrandizement, self-justification, overly defensive, politically partisan, almost like a rally for him – almost like what is most important is winning the elections in November.
” You will win the elections in November if you get this right. If you stop talking about yourself and the American people and show that you care about them, you will win. And conversely, you will lose the November elections if you continue to represent yourself, you keep playing silly politics, keep targeting the Democratic governors because it suits you for your electoral purposes. “
So there is that.
