The president, Trump went on a real interview tour, Wednesday, Sinclair, Gray TELEVISION, the Wall Street Journal, Fox News and has been completely excluded from the coronavirus threat in at least two of the interviews.
Grey TV DC bureau chief Jacqueline Policastro said to Trump, ” Coronavirus cases are on the rise in 22 states, including Oklahoma, where you have the intention to organize a large gathering this week. Aren’t you worried about people getting sick? ”
“No,” Trump said, ” because if you look, the numbers are very small compared to what it was. It is in the process of disappearing. Moreover, we know very well in vaccines and treatments. “And it went from there.
Trump “fading away”, talk to echo at its February and March claims-since denied-that the virus is ” going away. ”
His new comments on Wednesday reaffirmed what CNN’s White House team wrote here: “Trump has, in large part, to listening to the persistence of the coronavirus contagion — which is the origin of the peaks of new cases across the 21 states and daily death tolls that reach into the hundreds-to focus on the recovery of the economy and his own political prospects. ”
This story quoted an administration official close to the coronavirus group work by saying: “They simply do not want to deal with reality. They are in denial. “
Here is the reality
Gupta refuted Trump “it is disappearing” request in an interview with Don Lemon, saying: “It’s not going away, it’s just sort of moved across the country, which was exactly what was expected. This is not dying away. ”
Other experts have also warned against wishful thinking on the virus.
“It seems that the administration wants to go beyond coronavirus, but the virus is not going to cooperate,” Dr. Zeke Emanuel, former Obama White House health policy adviser, said on CNN’s ” New Day “. Emanuel is also on Joe Biden’s public health advisory committee.
“Unfortunately, by opening quickly, we have just increased the number of cases that we are going to see and the number of deaths we’ll see,” he said.
In other news… bombs of Bolton book
The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and CNN have all published information on the part of John Bolton’s book on Wednesday. There are many, many takeaways, so I would recommend that you read the CNN team’s full recap here. But the no. 1 bit of news is that Bolton’s claims Trump ” personally asked his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to help him win the 2020 u.s. presidential election. ”
Trump allies continue to claim that Bolton has revealed classified info; these arguments will be discussed in the court. The Department of Justice has filed a temporary restraining order Wednesday, so there’s probably a hearing at the end of the week. But, on Wednesday, the leaks demonstrated that the book is already out in the open. ABC “World News Tonight” aired a snippet of Martha Raddatz sitting interview with Bolton, and ” GMA ” will air another piece on Thursday morning, I said to myself.
“Should be executed “
By the Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey summary of the book, highlights and lowlights, Bolton “, describes the summer of 2019 meeting in New Jersey, where Trump says journalists should be jailed then they have to disclose their sources: “These people should be executed. They are bastards,’ Trump said, according to Bolton’s account. “
Trump calls Bolton a ” washed up guys “
Oliver Darcy wrote: “After discussing a few other subjects first, Hannity I asked Trump on Bolton book. Asset initially responded to Bolton’s allegations by saying that it has been difficult in countries such as China and Russia. The prez then (predictably) took on his former national security adviser and said that he “broke the law” by the publication of his tell-all. The characterization of Bolton as a “washed up guy,” Trump has said that he has effectively handed Bolton a favour by giving him a ” non-Senate confirmed position. “Shortly after that, Hannity moved on to the theme… “
What is the best way to pass on all of this?
Oliver Darcy wrote: “Bolton’s book contains a plethora of explosive allegations. And because the revelation came by way of a flood, Wednesday, compared to a constant drip by drip, it is difficult for news organizations to properly explain each of the stories to their respective audiences. Certain organs of the press presented their stories around specific angles, such as Bolton’s allegation that the Asset sought re-election to the assistance of China, while the other outlets have gone with the more general, the titles try to cram everything under one umbrella “.
“Personally,” Darcy adds, ” I thought that the Drudge Report did an excellent job, stacking multiple banner titles on top of each other with several of the greatest revelations that have emerged from the book. Readers to browse the site walked away with a good amount of information in a few seconds. Compare that to other titles, which required readers to click first on the story and then spend several minutes reading from top to bottom. It is important to remember that most people are not on Twitter all day, and focusing on key points in bullet-point form — this allows the news to be easier to digest and is useful for those who are looking to get a handle on this wild, the cycle of the information. “
