Our nation’s very last Mouth of Sauron has spoken! And been cut off mid-sentence by Fox News! Finally. Lame Duck Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany saved the best bullshit for last, and she’s broken Fox in the process As she vigorously flung Donald Trump’s poo today because he was too lazy to do...

Another Trump presser today, there were more of the same lies especially about the availability of COVID vaccines. Trump furthermore went full disinformation about mask use. CNN’s Dana Bash referred to Trump’s account as “propaganda”. http://www.pscp.tv/… x In opening statement, Pres Trump calls on @joebiden to “stop promoting his anti-vaccine theories.”...

Trump’s doing more law and order bafflegab among other idiocy, as Trump is whining about not getting credit for stuff. We’ll see whether he takes questions (and flees when the questions get too tough). He’s scared, especially if you compare his presser to Biden’s earlier today, replete with complete sentences. x...

Trump: “If stupid people aren’t elected, next year, we’re going to have one of the greatest years that we’ve ever had.” Trump will likely flee at the first suggestion that he’s lying again. Bigger/bigly question is whether CNN, MSNBC, or CSpan will cover it live. Live blog below. Date: August...

“To Joe, I would say stop playing politics with the virus. Too serious. Partisan politics has no place here,” the president says while delivering an attack on his election opponent from the White House briefing room.

Q: What do you mean by an “invasion” in the suburbs if VP Joe Biden is elected? President Trump: “They're going to destroy suburbia. And 30 percent of the people in suburbia are minorities.  They say 35 percent, but I like to cut it lower. This one’s importance is in...

Another stunt to keep Trump in the news on a Saturday, because he’s losing. Yesterday’s presser at his golf club was such a joke, this one shouldn’t even be covered, since it’s really coordinated with a Trump fundraiser. Wimp of Wall Street. No, Democrats aren’t cheating in the election by...

There’s a presser from the Trump golf club, because optics matter: “Congress needs to stay in Washington and work this out. Now watch this tee shot.” Undoubtedly pimpage of executive orders as a GOP stunt to criticize the Congressional impasse and circumvent legislation. CNN is covering it, as is MSNBC and...

Live Blog below: Trump to hold press conference today at 5:30 in briefing room Apparently they’ve given up trying to announce it for 5pm. Will Trump show up on time? Will there be medical professionals there, or generals to affirm yesterday’s “attack” in Beirut? Trump on Obama's speech at John...

  • August 5, 2020

Today’s takeaway from another presser that this time was an hour late: Trump thinks the massive fertilizer explosion in Beirut was an attack, Trump gathered new data to try to divert attention from the current economic recession. And for some reason the state of Florida has superior mail-in voting ability...

Presser started at 536pm ET. It ended at 613pm. Trump needed another faux-campaign speech opportunity today — he should be trying to clarify his criticism of Birx — perhaps there’ll be some faux-Kumbaya. The new tone will keep the press questions to a minimum. Perhaps Trump will double-down even further on the...

Live Blog Below (not really a doozy) Trump’s incompetence and negligence if not already a sign of Trump’s unfitness for office can be measured on charts. We’re now at “tremendous progress”. Trump knows he will lose if people can vote. Republicans know they can’t control the House or Senate if...

Led with Pfizer vaccine trial progress and exaggerated its availability. More than a few lies spewed.

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 Prince Andrew, as well as continuing the same campaign speech lies. x Also, without watching this presser, I've deduced...

So the return of the daily presser can be blamed on Lindsey Graham. The pretense will be the coronovirus. Deja vu all over again. However, since Trump might not appear with administration supporters, it more likely will take the same format as previous. The old format was Trump reading some prepared remarks,...

Today’s Trump WH presser apparently repurposed his canceled NH campaign speech of 50 minutes, and took 10 minutes of questions. Waste not, want not.

Today’s presser had more Trump lies. Trump claimed that the numbers are now going down. They aren’t. The same press questions happened and Trump chose not to answer ones asking for specificity.

Trump will present another WH stunt-presser today at 4pm EDT that won’t start on time.

Darn vermin at the presser. As of yet there’s no actual video of the rodent, but there’s plenty of IMPOTUS*. Likely pool video does have a clip which one assumes we’ll never see. No truth to the rumor that the rat will be named Zapruder. Yikes. A rat just scurried...

…Fear will keep the local systems in line.” By his own admission, Trump is always fighting someone on behalf of Americans — Congress, scientists, courts, foreign countries, Democrats, even his own government.
