Losing His Shit
Trump treated reporters to a campaign video during his propaganda press briefing yesterday. That’s illegal, but he did it anyway because he can do whatever he wants because he has absolute power. He even said so, “When somebody’s the president of the United States, the authority is total.”
Reporters weren’t having it. They pushed on him and poked at him and got under his skin which caused him to lose his shit. When challenged by Kaitlan Collins about having total authority, he quipped back, “Okay! You know what we’re going to do? We’re going to write up papers on this. It’s not gonna be necessary. Because the governors need us one way or the other.” When she questioned him about his dictatorial statements he shouted, “ENOUGH!”
“The federal government has absolute power. It has the power. As to whether or not I’ll use that power, we’ll see. I have an absolute right.”
The Republicans, by voting to acquit him, gave him absolute power and he’s using it.
Dr. Fauci had to grovel on camera next to Trump to say he didn’t really mean what he said about things being as serious as they were in order to keep his job.
Trump ended his propaganda briefing by exploiting his deceased friend, Stanley Chera, to say he thought Trump was great, “He thought we’d do such a good job and he was so happy, and he was very proud of what we have done in this administration. But he was tested positive and unfortunately he didn’t make it.”

After several changes and do overs, Trump’s Council to Reopen America which is made up of 2 family members with a stake in his business and 7 government officials who patronize his businesses, is still a blundering mess. Nobody knows who is leading it or what its mission is. The only thing anybody knows for sure is Trump will benefit from it.
Trump has got a number of task forces but no plan.
