In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump to return to center stage with coronavirus task force briefing revival

President Trump said Monday will return to the White House briefing room every day to give updates on the coronavirus, and no doubt whatever else he feels like talking about.

It doesn’t take a political genius to figure out why. The briefings provided an incredible platform for him, and since he abandoned the events, Joe Biden has gained in the polls. What’s more, even though he is trying to pretend the plague is getting better, voters remain deeply concerned about it, polls show.

The briefings begin Tuesday afternoon and will be at 5 pm. “We had a good slot. A lot of people were watching,” he said.

Kellyanne Conway acknowledged the political benefit, and no doubt was a leading voice to revive the routine.

“The president’s numbers were much higher when he was out there briefing everybody on his day-by-day basis about the coronavirus,” she said last week on Fox & Friends. “Just giving people the information . . .  I think the president should be doing that.”

  1. Why wouldn’t you be constantly in fear about it – it’s all they talk about – ad nauseum. I was at the nail salon last week and the news never stopped. They have reporters placed as virtually every opening to a hospital, they recite on the television and the radio the number of new cases. It is getting harder and harder to believe much of anything. I think we all agree that there is a virus, but you just don’t know who to believe anymore. It’s actually sad what this constant drumbeat is going to the mental health of Americans.

  2. I found the daily briefings to be very helpful. They gave me a baseline with which to compare the other information that came my way. Things change so fast that it’s necessary to have a solid block of facts each day in order to understand what’s going on.

    1. They need to glue Fauci’s mouth shut, before they put him in front of the cameras, the man hasn’t gotten anything correct. The CDC has jumbled the true numbers of actual cases and deaths, they should be cut from any funding, I don’t trust anything that comes from them. IMHO, keeping everybody masked and indoors is the worst possible idea. Let those with higher risk take the precautions, everybody else should be getting back to school and to work.
