Trump brags about how his press briefings about a deadly pandemic that is killing Americans get ratings comparable to "The Bachelor" or "Monday Night Football" pic.twitter.com/d3WCvQpSDL— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 29, 2020
I can't wait for the day when the CDC releases the Sweeps Week ratings!
On an even more bizarre note, Trump seems to be implying that medical personnel are stealing personal protective equipment:
"How do you go from 10 to 20 to 30,000, to 300,000 -- even though this is different. Something is going on. And you ought to look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going?" -- Trump suggests that there is some sort of New York nurse conspiracy to steal masks pic.twitter.com/6vubm89vgQ— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 29, 2020
It's as if he doesn't even know that this equipment is meant for single use. He is on the record stating that hospitals should be sanitizing masks with 'liquids'.
The entire press briefing was a farrago of nonsense and duplicity, I don't know why media outlets even bother covering these lie-fests. Why give the asshole the ratings he craves?
