Trump rambles about ‘genius’ coronavirus during long-winded briefing: ‘The germ has gotten so brilliant’

The leader of the free world rambled about his “brilliant enemy” during a coronavirus briefing that lasted two hours and sixteen minutes.

Allies of the White House had been quoted in the press urging President Donald Trump to keep his remarks short, but that advice has apparently been ignored.

“When critics (and allies) make suggestions to him and they become public – such as the briefings ought to be shorter – POTUS often prefers to do the opposite. We’re well past 90 minutes on this briefing,” New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman noted on Twitter as the briefing wore on.

“They develop drugs, like the antibiotics, you see it — antibiotics used to solve every problem,” Trump claimed.

“No, one of the biggest problems the world has is the germ has gotten so brilliant that the antibiotic can’t keep up with it, they’re constantly trying to come up with — a new. People go to a hospital and they catch — they go for a heart operation, that’s no problem, and they end up dying from problems,” Trump says. “You know the problems I’m talking about.”

“There’s a whole genius to it,” he explained.

“We’re fighting — not only is it hidden, but it’s very smart,” he continued. “It’s invisible and it’s hidden, but it’s very smart.”

At a press briefing, McEnany was asked about a federal judge's demand to see Trump's order of clemency for Stone because there are questions about how it was crafted.

"I don't, um, have the exact details on that," McEnany insisted. "The Roger Stone clemency was a very important moment for justice. You had a completely bogus Russia witch hunt that found nothing and in order to justify the waste of taxpayers dollars."

GOP donors will have second thoughts about backing another Trump after four disastrous years: conservative

Published

on

According to conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin, many Republican donors are not hardcore ideologues and base their giving on specific policies that may benefit them and, with that in mind, may balk at supporting another unknown quantity like Donald Trump who has created nothing less than chaos since becoming president.

The Republican Rubin -- who has become one of the president's most ardent critics -- explained in her Washington Post column that many donors are "transactional donors" making them different from some of the president's more vocal supporters in the press and in office.

‘Horrifying disregard of the lives of others’: Ted Cruz slammed for refusing to wear a mask

Published

on

Although Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has recently encouraged mask wearing in response to the coronavirus pandemic, some far-right Republicans are still reluctant to wear face masks in public. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, according to AmericaBlog reporter John Aravosis, wasn’t wearing a mask at all during an American Airlines flight from Houston to Dallas on Sunday, July 12 — which is a violation of the airline’s rules.

Aravosis tweeted, “I just confirmed that Ted Cruz went the entire one-hour-eight-minute flight from Houston to Dallas and never put on his mask. So he wasn’t just drinking coffee for a minute.”
