‘I’m with everybody’: Trump dismisses ‘re-open’ protesters because ‘they’re six feet apart’

Published

During his press conference Sunday, President Donald Trump dismissed questions about the protesters, saying that they can protest all they want as long as they’re socially distancing.

“People feel that way,” Trump said. “You’re allowed to protest. I watched the protest, and they were all 6 feet apart. It was an orderly group of people.”

At least one video of protests in Colorado, Michigan, Nevada, Washington and other places show people standing very close to each other.

“Some have gone too far, some of the governors have gone too far,” Trump continued. “Some of the things that happened maybe were not so appropriate. I think in the end it’s not going to matter because we’re starting to open up our states. And I think they’re going to open up very well. We’re going to watch it closely, we’re working them on testing. Whatever they need. I don’t think they need ventilators any more. The term the governor used was phenomenal. That was the only sentence they left out, which is okay. I appreciate that’s what Gov. Cuomo said. But they’ve done — these people have done a phenomenal job. As far as protesters, you know, I see protesters for all sorts of things. I’m with everybody. I’m with everybody.”

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace chuckles after Times reporter explains why Trump has no hope of pivoting to an empathetic campaign

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace struggled to stifle a chuckle in a conversation about President Donald Trump's struggle to run a campaign that can contend with most Americans' needs in a horrific pandemic.

"I think to Nick [Confessore's] point earlier, there should be a sense of nervousness in Trump's camp," began Democratic strategist Basil Smikle. "You don't see -- you talked about enablers. You don't see Republicans engaged in their behavior with respect to the president at this juncture. You're starting to see them not nationalize he's the president of the United States. They should be more allied with him, but instead, they're focused on local campaigns. The president has lost several cases at the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act case notwithstanding. There's a lot of things they should be rallying around, but they can't."

Here’s how bad things are for Trump after the Supreme Court ruling: columnist

Published

In a piece for Vanity Fair, columnist Eric Lutz addressed the degree to which President Donald Trump is in trouble after the ruling by the Supreme Court on his financial records.

Trump has spent the better part of four years fighting any transparency about his finances and taxes, which many have suspected might reveal illegal activity.

"He's not going to release his tax returns," said senior adviser Kellyanne Conway in 2017. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care."
