On Thursday, President Donald Trump gave his latest press briefing on the spread of the novel coronavirus, and what his administration was doing to try to contain it and ensure the public safety.
Commenters on social media were not satisfied with his performance — and some also criticized the White House correspondents who let him lie and veer off topic without pursuing it.
This was the last one I attempted to watch. The sound of his voice infuriates me. #TrumpPressConf

Trump can't "send people back to work." First of all, he hasn't sent anyone home. He hasn't closed schools, bars, and restaurants nationally.
Trump has done as little as possible. You can't reopen what you have not yet closed.

He wants the churches full on Easter. Does he realize that Easter is a Christian holiday only? So he basically wants to kill Christians. It is so weird. #TrumpPressConf

The Covid-19 death rate is going to be Trump’s new “fake news” in a week or two. You watch.#TrumpPressConf
