He keeps using that word, "sarcasm". I do not think it means what he thinks it means.

He is so farking pissed off.
Everything has blown up in his face.
This is a worst case scenario for him, even if it all went straight tomorrow.

We can almost ignore him.  That's a huge improvement.

According to The Guardian the daily briefings are back on.  Whoever had two days in the pool step up and collect your prize (though he still has 2 hours to cancel again)

Except these will just be him talking in the Rose Garden for two hours and not taking any questions.

Ah, he's so lonely and distraught that he can't hang out at Maralago with all this toadies and hold his ego rallies.

They were never coronavirus briefings, they've always been campaign rallies.

If he really wanted good ratings, he'd resign and renegotiate his contract.

Aaaaand, apparently, today's briefing is back on.

He must have someone he really, really wants to lob verbal Jarts at today.

Back about January 1971 I did 500 mics of Owsley produced LSD, which led to my having a conversation later that evening with the Dean of Students because one of my co-trippers had had a little accident.  It was a memorable event, I impressed the Dean mighty well with my lucidity, which I maintained well even though his face was going all Men in Black on me.  It was those sorts of experiences that led me to think I could have found herr trump funny in an enjoyable way.

"Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, 'having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.' Does sarcasm ever work?"

I would enjoy a fun-house-ride- on-hallucinogens experience.

Trump has been a bad bum wine and malt liquor 3 year long bender from hell.

I like when they introduce some major news story with "Today, Trump said in a tweet....."

Isn't it great!?

Trump has mastered the art of Presidenting without Presidenting.

just try and snatch the pebble from his hand!
 
2020-04-27 4:24:46 PM  
No, it isn't. I've been thinking about this today. It's like we're all trapped in that movie "Dead Calm." Reasonable people are Nicole Kidman, stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean with Billy Zane (Republicans).

I hope this ends like that movie did. It would at least be satisfying.

Trump started off his Sunday with warm wishes: "Happy Birthday to Melania, our great First Lady!"

I don't do twitter, but do normal people send their spouses birthday wishes via twitter?

Good luck with that.  It looks like it could rain here any moment.

I Ate Shergar: He keeps using that word, "sarcasm". I do not think it means what he thinks it means.


All he had to do was stop rambling.  That's it.  Say a few words, then stand aside and let the actual doctors talk. Then Pence talks.  He's coherent  at least.  Then end it with a few words.

That's the only thing he needed to do, and if he'd done it from the beginning, the press president would have treated him with a bit more respect.  But instead he rambles, rants, preens and bloviates, he talks over the doctors and whines over how mean the press.

He's literally his own worst enemy.

1) We're doing a tremendous bigly job, everyone who wants a ventilator gets a test
2) Everyone should be appreciative or no soup for you
3) FEMA is in your base, stealing your PPE

Hi. I'm disabled. My daughter is a nurse in a COVID step-down unit. My [elderly, lesbian] parents are terrified their legal marriage wont be soon.

I don't dare ignore him.

It's not uncommon for public figures, actually. I assume most of them also do so in person or, if that isn't possible, over the phone.
