Donald Trump captured in hot-mic-moment after his coronavirus address

Published

on

President Donald Trump apparently didn’t know that cameras were still rolling after he addressed the nation.

Watching a C-SPAN video revealed that Trump nonchalantly lamented, “Okaaaaaaaaay,” and ripped off of his microphone.

Typically, the president gives the address and then pauses until he knows they are off. It’s unclear why Trump didn’t know here.

In this case, a voice can be heard saying, “we’re clear,” before Trump takes off his microphone. Staffers then come up to his left side asking for the microphone and the screen fades to black.

“Everything is an act for him,” noted Leah McElrath, who captured the moment. “Everything is pretend. He has no sense of the gravity of the situation because he lacks the capacity for empathy. As I’ve repeatedly says about malignant narcissists, they can only mimic socially appropriate affect.”

Rushmore on the evening before the 4th of July, advisors to the president are attempting to get him to start focusing on bread and butter issues that will get him re-elected instead of harping on statues being pulled down by protesters across the country.

As the Daily Beast report illustrates, their efforts appear to be futile based upon his Friday night speech.

With the president trying to fire up the crowd by insisting, “Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders. They think the American people are weak, and soft, and submissive,” the Beast reported that Trump, "decided to focus heavily Friday evening on protesters and Black Lives Matter activists who want various American monuments, including those honoring Confederate, white-supremacist, and slave-owning figures of history, torn down and destroyed for good.
