Live Blog below … looks like Trump will be late, sliding into the old habit, so much for that “new tone”.

Key takeaway: Jacksonville rally for RNC cancelled. CNN is framing it as Trump acknowledging that he’s losing because COVID is the real foe. Backpedaling on schools.

We’ll see whether Trump can do anything other than show up with no experts, read prepared text, do a short question period, and quickly flee. Not really a “New Tone” because he’s still contradicting himself on Fox News later. So far, Trump inflicts us with less time for the briefing.

He had that NY Post question about Ghislaine Maxwell, so this time there could be a OANN question, but we’ll see.

“Trump blathered on for several more minutes in an attempt to differentiate himself from Joe Biden by claiming, with no proof, that the Democratic nominee is mentally failing. But it’s Trump himself who is coming across as unstable during these interviews. Trump even seemed oblivious to the impression by many that the Fox News Sunday interview had gone awry and was widely reported as such. Who he imagines is impressed by him being able to remember the order of person, woman, man, camera, TV is anyone’s guess.” (Rolling Stone)
