Musings from the Bunker 8/9/20
As has been my recent tradition, Sunday we revisit the pronouncements of our President from the last week, together with some commentary:
“Wow! Really bad TV Ratings for Morning Joe. @foxandfriends doing great, leading all others by far. @CNN not a factor!!!”
“My visits last week to Texas and Florida had massive numbers of cheering people gathered along the roads and highways, thousands and thousands, even bigger (by far) than the crowds of 2016. Saw no Biden supporters, and yet some in the Fake News said it was an equal number.”
Still worried about ratings… Does he understand that the President is supposed to get high ratings? Particularly in a pandemic…
“Cases up because of BIG Testing! Much of our Country is doing very well. Open the Schools!”
Somehow his view of testing and the definition of “very well” are different from the norm.
Finally, this is his disturbing response in the Axios interview to a question about what he thought of the civil-rights activist and long-term congressman John Lewis:
"I don't know. I really don't know. I don't know. I don't know John Lewis. He chose not to come to my inauguration"
Didn’t attend the inauguration? Even at this late date, our President is still preoccupied with the attendance at his Inauguration? Plus, is this the best that he can come up with? I’m truly perplexed. Didn’t he and his team prepare for this question that obviously would be asked?
