President Donald Trump and economic adviser Larry Kudlow are furious after a CNBC report saying that the president didn’t attend the “G20 Leaders Side-Event: Pandemic Preparedness and Response” on Saturday during the summit.

According to CNBC’s White House correspondent Eamon Javers, Kudlow texted him a message, which Trump then tweeted out on Sunday.

“Eamon, top of Cnbc (sic) website it says Trump did not deliver a message on pandemic 1st session. Completely false. I wrote message w/ speechwriters. He delivered it. Was 3rd speaker. Mnuchin & I sat next to him. This is shoddy, biased and fake news. Cnbc should be ashamed. And retraction w/apology should be made,” Kudlow said.

The story that CNBC reported says that Trump did “not participate in pandemic preparedness session,” which is true. Trump attended the opening session where he was third to speak, and he did address the COVID-19 pandemic. Then he went golfing on Saturday afternoon and again on Sunday afternoon.

A video of the “G20 Leaders Side-Event: Pandemic Preparedness and Response” shows all of the speeches, what was said, and that Trump was nowhere to be found.

Still, Trump maintained he was there.

Donald Trump’s worst fear has come true — it is why he’s been spiraling out of control since the election: report

Published

Writing in the New York Times this Thursday, Dan Barry says that in the wake of the 2020 election, President Trump has run head-first into the epithet he's long used to slander others.

"Loser."

Speaking to the Times, former Trump business associate Jack O’Donnell pointed out that the first thing Trump calls someone who's wronged him is "loser."

“That’s his main attack word. The worst thing in his world would be to be a loser. To avoid being called a loser, he will do or say anything," he said.

In reality, Trump has been a loser many times over. "In fact, his greatest success flowed not from real estate but from the creation of a popular alternate-reality television persona — Donald Trump, master of the boardroom — that he ultimately rode to the White House," Barry writes. "But his famous aversion to the label of loser has now reached its apotheosis."

Remember in the spring, the pot-banging? People would come out on their porches in the evening to rally for the health workers — to say, collectively for just a minute or two, that we were thankful for the effort.That spirit seems years away to Anna Halloran.“There’s a large segment of the population that hates the health department right now, that thinks we’re lying,” says Halloran, a communicable disease epidemiologist in Spokane, Washington.Halloran works for the Spokane Regional Health District, which recently fired its top health officer, Dr. Bob Lutz. He was sort of the Dr. Anthony Fauci... (more…)
