So Trump held a coronavirus press briefing where he defended the states with the most cases as being well run because they have GOP governors, blamed China, and voiced support for a pedophile.
Feeling better yet, America?

Because of Trump's mismanagement during the pandemic, 3 million Americans have been infected, over 140,000 have died, and tens of millions have lost their jobs.
But Donald Trump only expressed sympathy for two people today: Ghislaine Maxwell and Ron DeSantis.

I assume Ghislaine Maxwell knows that two years ago Trump was also very publicly wishing Michael Cohen well–"a fine person…who I have always liked & respected," because while "most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble…I don’t see Michael doing that."

Trump should be remembered as the man who demanded Hillary Clinton be ‘locked up’ while wishing Ghislaine Maxwell ‘well.’

Trump is the first President since Hoover to lose jobs during his tenure. So, judge away. https://t.co/46YgzNJN1p

Trump lies and says he never fought masks and social distancing. He held a rally last month with no masks or social distancing. pic.twitter.com/NFDYbeQ4KW

Dr. Fauci tells CNN that he last spoke to Trump around the end of last week, meaning he did not brief Trump ahead of today's coronavirus briefing.

I believe it. He once had Ronny Jackson inject a heavy dose of penicillin into my butt cheek on Air Force One because I cleared my throat and he thought I was getting sick. https://t.co/mIPQUujPIx

I wrote this in April about the media’s tireless need to portray Trump as competent after he told Americans to chug bleach.
Months later, they’re still exhausting themselves talking about “tone” and wondering if he’s “grown into” the presidency.https://t.co/xFYrgdFY4S

Let’s be clear what Trump is doing: he’s trying to silence—and punish—those protesting police brutality and demanding racial justice across our country. Yesterday I joined my colleagues on a bill to block the Trump admin from deploying paramilitary forces against Americans. https://t.co/VGL8BHpraD

Agree with this. As I said a while back, Trump isn’t trying to delegitimize the election so he can stay.
He’s doing what narcissists do: set up a face-saving pretext to stave off embarrassment.
Ain’t nobody gonna need to drag him out. If he loses he’ll be effectively MIA. https://t.co/4t0ld3Ug9p
