The White House delivered an abrupt 22-minute briefing following a day of media criticism over trump's disinfectant remarks the previous night. trump cuts the press questions and storms out of COVID-19 briefing early after disinfectant backlash.

He refused to answer questions about his comments on people injecting bleach or directly shining UV light on their bodies to kill the virus.

Several of Trump's closest advisers inside and outside of the White House have urged him to stop his marathon televised briefings to save his poll numbers [note: not lives]

When the president has lost the confidence of the people and when his words and actions are doing far more harm than good, there can be little justification for him to stay in office.

Will he resign? ...we can only pray trump finds the courage for self-realization of his incompetence.

Yumi ...A Real First Lady

Maryland owes a debt of gratitude to the people of South Korea, Gov. Larry Hogan (R) said Monday after securing 500,000 coronavirus tests from the country over the weekend.

But Hogan acknowledged Monday that the deal would not have come together if it weren’t for his wife, first lady Yumi Hogan.

Yumi joined the governor Saturday to welcome a Boeing 777, the first-ever Korean Air passenger plane to land at Baltimore-Washington International Marshall Airport, which the governor said was carrying more tests than “four of the top five states in America” combined have completed.

The delivery was the culmination of what Hogan labeled “Operation Enduring Friendship,” which started March 28, when he asked his wife to join him on a call with the Korean ambassador to the United States.

During the call, Hogan said they spoke of the special relationship between Maryland and the Republic of Korea, a bond created because of Yumi Hogan.

“Most importantly, I want to thank Maryland’s first lady, my wife, Yumi,” Hogan said, his voice slightly cracking. “She truly is a champion of this Operation Enduring Friendship.”

Yumi Hogan is believed to be the first Korean American first lady of any state and has been the catalyst for “the special bond” between Maryland and South Korea, where Yumi Hogan has almost taken on a celebrity status.

Gov. Hogan said he has been referred to as the “han kuk sah we,” the -in-law of South Korea, most recently by South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a videotaped greeting during a National Governors Association event last winter.

“I considered it quite an honor for him to say that that night, but I had no idea just how much that would truly come to mean these two very long months later,” Hogan said, standing near his wife at Monday’s news conference.

Before her marriage to Hogan in 2004, Yumi Hogan was a single mother of three daughters.

She grew up in a rural area on a chicken farm outside Seoul and immigrated to the United States in her 20s with her first husband, the father of her three daughters, to work in blue-collar family businesses.

Living first in Texas and then California, Yumi later divorced and moved to Howard County for its schools. In Maryland, she sought out rural areas that reminded her of home, inspiring her abstract landscapes. She taught art in her basement and worked as a cashier, trying to provide for her daughters.

She became a citizen in 1994 and met Hogan six years later at an art show.

In 2008, she earned a bachelor’s degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Two years later, she received a master’s degree from American University.

Her work, using traditional sumi ink and hanji paper, has been displayed locally and around the world.

Since her husband took office in 2015, Yumi Hogan has hosted a delegation from South Korea at the governor’s mansion, served her own kimchi at a celebration of the Lunar New Year and impressed guests at a cookout with her traditional pork bulgogi.

She hauled her own kimchi fridge to the governor’s mansion when the couple first moved in.

trumps ego will delay your stimulus check

The economic impact of COVID-19 is gargantuan and the decline is tragically affecting the lives of millions of Americans. 17 million have filed for unemployment in the last three weeks, there are mile long lines at food banks, and nearly one third of Americans didn’t pay their rent in April. After finally passing the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which includes the disbursement of $1,200 stimulus checks to many individuals, the Treasury Department has decided to stop the printing presses momentarily. Why?

The issue boils down to a simple question: What matters more during a crisis, getting stimulus checks to individuals in need as quickly as possible or ensuring that the checks bear trump’s name? Sadly, the Treasury Department and trump believe the latter.

trump is not legally authorized to sign stimulus check disbursements. Putting trump’s name on the checks is neither required nor in keeping with protocol. In fact, having his name appear in the “memo” section is a sneaky workaround

The Treasury Department has instructed the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to print trumps name on the “memo” line of the stimulus checks it will soon mail out to tens of millions of people. According to multiple IRS officials, this decision will delay the issuance of paper checks as the IRS information technology team needs to make a programming change before the checks are passed to the Bureau of Fiscal Service for printing and issuing. Chad Hooper, national president of the IRS's Professional Managers Association, told The Washington Post that “any last minute request like this will create a downstream snarl that will result in a delay.”

trump: a once-a-century threat to life and livelihood ...and you thought it was COVID

In his daily briefings on the coronavirus, President trump has brandished all the familiar tools in his rhetorical arsenal: belittling Democratic governors, demonizing the media, trading in innuendo and bulldozing over the guidance of experts.

It’s the kind of performance the president relishes, but one that has his advisers and Republican allies worried.

As unemployment soars and the death toll skyrockets, and new polls show support for the president’s handling of the crisis sagging, White House allies and Republican lawmakers increasingly believe the briefings are hurting the president more than helping him. Many view the sessions as a kind of original sin from which all of his missteps flow, once he gets through his prepared script and turns to his preferred style of extemporaneous bluster and invective.

Mr. trump “sometimes drowns out his own message,” said Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who has become one of the president’s informal counselors and told him “a once-a-week show” could be more effective. Representative Susan Brooks of Indiana said “they’re going on too long.” Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said the briefings were “going off the rails a little bit” and suggested that he should “let the health professional’s guide where we’re going to go.”

Even the conservative Wall Street Journal editorial board chastised the president for his behavior at the briefings. “Covid-19 isn’t shifty Schiff,” it wrote in an editorial on Thursday, using Mr. trump’s nickname for Representative Adam Schiff. “It’s a once-a-century threat to American life and livelihood.”

With only intermittent attempts to adapt to a moment of crisis, Mr. trump is effectively wagering that he can win re-election in the midst of a national emergency on a platform of polarization.

In interviews, Republican lawmakers, administration officials and members of his re-election campaign said they wanted Mr. trump to limit his error-filled appearances at the West Wing briefings and move more aggressively to prepare for the looming recession. Some even suggested he summon a broader range of the country’s leaders, including former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, in an all-hands-on-deck moment to respond to the national emergency.

The consternation reflects a new sense of urgency over Mr. trump’s re-election efforts as Joseph R. Biden Jr. emerges as his likely Democratic challenger. Three new polls this week show Mr. Biden leading the president, and the trump campaign’s internal surveys show he has mostly lost the initial bump he received early in the crisis, according to three people briefed on the numbers. Public polls show he badly trails the nation’s governors and his own medical experts in terms of whom Americans trust most for guidance.

“I told him your opponent is no longer Joe Biden — it’s this virus,” Mr. Graham said.

One of Mr. trump’s top political advisers, speaking on the condition of anonymity so as not to anger the president, was even blunter, arguing that the White House was handing Mr. Biden ammunition each night by sending the president out to the cameras.

Vice President Mike Pence, this adviser said, should be the M.C. because he projects more empathy than the president, rarely makes mistakes and, as a former governor and the chief of the coronavirus task force, has a better grasp on the details of the response.

Yet the publicity-obsessed president is unlikely to relinquish his grip on the evening sessions: Mr. trump has told aides he relishes the free television time and boffo ratings that come with his appearances, administration officials say.

He also views it as an opportunity to put forth his version of events and rebut the negative coverage he is receiving, as he showed in a tweet Thursday afternoon. On a day that New York State reported 799 deaths from the coronavirus in a 24-hour period, Mr. trump’s focus was on himself, and his feuds.

There is some preliminary evidence that Mr. trump is heeding the Republicans’ concerns. On Wednesday and Thursday, Mr. trump made what were for him relatively brief appearances before leaving the room and turning the podium over to Mr. Pence and Drs. Anthony S. Fauci and Deborah Birx. Whether it lasts remains to be seen.

Deep divisions remain in the White House and the Republican Party over how quickly to ease social distancing orders and urge Americans to return to school and work. Some who have Mr. trump’s ear, like Mr. Graham, are urging prudence. But a number of Republican lawmakers and Fox News personalities are lobbying the president to reopen the economy as quickly as possible.

Amid the conflicting advice, the president’s gut instincts and fondness for showmanship have won out, prompting him to frequently contradict or simply obscure the scientists who polls show are most trusted by voters.

And it’s not just an overwhelming majority of voters who believe the medical experts should be center stage: Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, personally urged Mr. trump at the start of the crisis to let Drs. Fauci and Birx be the face of the response, according to a Republican official familiar with their conversation.

Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said: “Any suggestion that President trump is struggling on tone or message is completely false. During these difficult times, Americans are receiving comfort, hope and resources from their president, as well as their local officials, and Americans are responding in unprecedented ways.”

Some of Mr. trump’s aides have quietly suggested to him that he ratchet back his public attacks on the governors who have emerged as leaders in the response to the virus. But they acknowledge their efforts can be something of a fool’s errand; the president has his style and he won’t change, they say.

His attacks on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, a popular Democrat and potential vice-presidential pick for Mr. Biden — whom Mr. trump called a “half-Whit” and “that woman” — were of particular concern to some aides and political advisers, who believe he risked alienating voters in a pivotal state.

Representative Paul Mitchell, a Michigan Republican, said he had contacted a senior White House official, as well as Ms. Whitmer herself, to express his unhappiness about their mutual sniping.

“It is not helpful to hurl names and talk about badly about people,” Mr. Mitchell said. “We need to focus on the problem.”

At Mr. trump’s re-election campaign, staff members have closely monitored internal polling data showing an erosion of the gains Mr. trump made immediately after he put social distancing guidelines in place. Advisers are torn between knowing that a less abrasive approach would help Mr. trump and their awareness that he can’t tolerate criticism, regardless of the setting.

Mr. trump’s limited gains in the polls are all the more striking when compared with those made by governors in both parties; many are enjoying double-digit gains in their approval ratings. And Mr. trump’s penchant for ad hominem attacks, Republicans say, illustrates why he has little room for growth among the electorate.

“He can’t escape his instincts, his desire to put people down, like Mitt Romney, or to talk about his ratings,” said former Representative Carlos Curbelo, a Florida Republican. “That’s why he’s not getting the George W. Bush post-9/11 treatment. A leader in this sort of crisis should have a 75-to-80-percent approval rating.”

That would prove difficult for even a more conventional president at a time the country is so politically divided, but a number of prominent Republicans believe Mr. trump has hurt himself by making only the most halting attempts at demonstrating an above-the-fray unity.

For example, aides to both Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama said that neither had been asked by the White House to do anything to aid the response to the crisis.

“The model of Obama asking Bush and Clinton to work on Haiti is a really good model,” said former Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee, recalling how Mr. Obama deployed Mr. Bush and former President Bill Clinton to lead the United States’ assistance to Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake there.

But Mr. Haslam and other Republicans believe Mr. trump needs to go much further. Mr. Haslam called for creating a recovery team and installing “the economic equivalent of Dr. Fauci” as its leader. Asked whom he had in mind, Mr. Haslam suggested Mitch Daniels, who previously served as the governor of Indiana, the head of the Office of Management and Budget and as chief executive of the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly.

A number of senators, including Mr. Graham, are also pushing for a sort of economic task force to complement the virus task force.

“The administration needs to be thinking through what does it look like to get back to business,” said Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, suggesting that it should “give a lot of thought to how we scale back up economically, because that’s going to be the next big challenge for us.”

The health of the economy may pose the biggest challenge to Mr. trump’s re-election.

Mr. Toomey said he “won’t be surprised if we have 25 percent unemployment,” which would match the height of the Great Depression, by the start of the summer. But he said that if voters believed “the president has handled this well under the circumstances, and we’re on a good path, he has a shot.”

Other Republicans are more skeptical that Mr. trump can win if he’s still saddled with double-digit unemployment in November. “I think that makes it really hard,” said Tony Fratto, a former Bush administration official.

And then there’s the matter of Mr. trump and his conduct at the daily briefings.

Mr. Toomey has been outspoken about the need for Americans to wear masks when they leave home. Last week he had a 20-minute conversation with the president, whom he described as “thoughtful and engaged.”

By week’s end, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had issued guidelines: People should wear “cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.” The agency’s decision was based in part on recent studies showing that people without symptoms can give the virus to others.

But in the same briefing where he announced the guidelines, Mr. trump diminished the move as “a recommendation.”

“I just don’t want to wear one myself,” he said, explaining that he had no symptoms. “I am feeling good.”

$243,151.65 was it worth it? No but at least the scumbag is gone

The recently resigned acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly's Monday trip Guam where he addressed the crew of the USS Theodore Roosevelt and slammed their former commander, cost the Defense Department an estimated $243,000, according a Navy official.

Modly's remarks led his resignation a day later.
Modly traveled Guam aboard a C-37B VIP aircraft a modified Gulfstream jet. It costs $6,946.19 per hour fly and the flight time for the Guam trip was about 35 hours for a total cost of $243,1.65.
The cost of the trip was first reported by USA Today.
The recently resigned acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly's Monday trip to Guam where he addressed the crew of the USS Theodore Roosevelt and slammed their former commander, cost the Defense Department an estimated $243,000, according to a Navy official.
Modly's remarks led to his resignation a day later.

Modly traveled to Guam aboard a C-37B VIP aircraft a modified Gulfstream jet. It costs $6,946.19 per hour to fly and the flight time for the Guam trip was about 35 hours for a total cost of $243,1.65.

Modly's resignation came just over a week after Capt. Brett Crozier, the then-commanding officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, sent a memo warning of coronavirus spreading among the sailors on the aircraft carrier. The memo leaked, prompting Modly remove Crozier from command and fly Guam address the ship in remarks that included calling Crozier "stupid."
While not explicitly mentioning Modly or his resignation, the Navy's top admiral, Chief of Naval Operation Adm. Mike Gilday, sent a message to the Navy on Wednesday acknowledging that "the events of the past week have been difficult for our Navy and our nation."

"The events of the past week have been difficult for our Navy and our nation. We will learn from them. But make no mistake, we are moving forward. The Navy has our orders and we are executing them," Gilday wrote.

Two-hundred eighty- sailors aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for coronavirus and 93% of the ship's crew have been tested as of Wednesday, according the Navy.

Nearly a week after Modly fired Crozier for too widely disseminating a memo calling for the urgent evacuation of the ship's crew, the Navy has only evacuated 2,329 of the aircraft carrier's nearly 4,800 sailors.

The Navy initially said that it had intended to move 2,700 sailors ashore by April 3. Officials say the process has been slowed due to testing as the government of Guam is requiring that sailors test negative before they can be moved into hotels on the island.

trump baselessly disputes HHS IG report and repeats false claims

Fact checking trump's claims the HHS IG report
At Monday's briefing, Fox News correspondent Kristin Fisher asked the president about a recently released report from the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General which details challenges facing hospitals in responding to the coronavirus pandemic, including shortages of supplies and equipment, as well as prolonged wait times to get testing results.
In response, trump said, "It's just wrong. Did I hear the word 'inspector general,' really? It's wrong."
When pushed on the fact that the report was released by his own administration, trump suggested the findings were politically motivated, asking, "Well where did he come from, the inspector general? What's his name?" trump later added, "So give me the name of the inspector general. Could politics be entered into that?"
Facts First: There's no evidence to suggest anything about the report is wrong, or that it was somehow politically motivated. The report was independently launched by the HHS OIG and based on interviews conducted between March 23 and 27 with administrators at more than 300 hospitals across 46 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, DC. The report found hospitals faced testing shortages and longer than usual wait times for coronavirus test results.
The report's findings of shortages at key hospitals also corroborated previous press reports from hospitals in New York and elsewhere, which are facing severe shortages of vital medical equipment. According to the HHS report, its purpose is to provide a snapshot of hospitals' experiences amid a growing number of coronavirus cases and doesn't serve as a review of the department's response to the outbreak.
The senior HHS OIG officials who oversaw this watchdog report are both women: Ann Maxwell, the assistant inspector general for evaluation and inspections, and Christi Grimm, the principal deputy inspector general. Grimm, whose name is on the report, is a career official who entered her current role in January but has been with HHS since 1999, serving under both Republican and Democratic administrations.

Coronavirus tests
On Monday, trump claimed, as he did last week, that his administration had initially been burdened by an "obsolete" test for the coronavirus.
"Initially speaking, the tests were old, obsolete, and not really prepared," he said Monday.
Facts First: The faulty initial test for the coronavirus was created during trump's administration, in early 2020, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since this is a new virus that was first identified this year, the tests couldn't possibly be "old" or "obsolete."
"He is lying. He is lying 100%. He is lying because he is trying to shift blame to others, even if the attempt is totally nonsensical," Gregg Gonsalves, an assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health, said of a previous version of trump's claim.
The claim "doesn't make sense because it is false," Tara Smith, an epidemiology professor at Kent State University, said of a previous version of the claim. "This a new virus."
Sticking to past practice, the CDC created its own test for the coronavirus rather than use the test being distributed by the World Health Organization. The CDC began developing its test in January 2020 and announced on February 5 that it would begin shipping test kits to public health labs around the US.
Soon after that, there were reports that some of the test kits were not working properly. The CDC admitted the problem on February . It announced February 28 that it had manufactured brand new, functional test kits that addressed the problem, which had been caused by a flaw in one of the components of the original test.

trump on performance of the small business lending program
During Monday's White House coronavirus task force briefing, trump claimed that the Paycheck Protection Program -- a small businesses lending program -- has "really been performing well."
trump said there were a few "minor glitches that have already been taken care of."
Facts First: CNN has reported significant issues the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), with system wide failures as lenders process these loans.
Days after the launch of the Small Business Administration's rollout of the PPP, there are still delays in the system lenders use upload loan application information and the money is still largely not going out the businesses that need it yet.
According an industry source who spoke CNN, major system-wide failures continue crop in the PPP system, including shutdowns preventing the submission of applications from lenders on their system known as E-Tran. These issues have slowed down the ability for banks participate in the loan program, this source tells CNN.
Additionally, several bank executives tell CNN they want the Treasury Department or the Small Business Administration offer more guidance how they are supposed disburse funds. CNN reporting indicates there are also concerns among lenders who say they won't cut checks until there is clear guidance on how they should distribute the money.
read more about the early glitches in the small business lending program, read here and here.

Plane passengers being tested for the coronavirus
Asked about the possibility of restrictions on travel between coronavirus hotspots, trump said: "There's also testing done when people get onto those planes and also when people get off the planes."
Facts First: There is no evidence that plane passengers in the US are being tested for the coronavirus at all, let alone both when they get on and get off the plane. While it is theoretically possible this is happening under the radar at a particular airport, it is certainly not happening widely.
trump might have meant to refer to screening -- which involves questioning and sometimes temperature checks -- rather than actual testing, but major US airlines are not doing screening, either. Some plane passengers are being subjected to government screening upon landing, but most passengers are not -- and this screening, unlike testing, cannot conclusively determine whether someone has the virus.

The Obama administration and H1N1
trump slammed the Obama administration for its handling of the H1N1 (swine flu) pandemic in 2009.
"The other administration, they didn't even know -- it was like they didn't even know it was here," he said.
Facts First: It's not true that the Obama administration did not notice H1N1 or take significant action to fight the pandemic.
On April 26, 2009, less than two weeks after the first US cases of H1N1 were confirmed, the Obama administration declared a public health emergency. Two days later, the Obama administration made an initial $1.5 billion funding request to Congress. (Congress ultimately allocated $7.7 billion.) On that same day, the Food and Drug Administration approved the CDC's test; the CDC began distributing the tests domestically and internationally on May 1, 2009.
In October 2009, President Barack Obama declared a national emergency to allow hospitals more flexibility for a possible flood of H1N1 patients.
The Obama administration did face criticism over the pace of its vaccination effort, but the suggestion that the administration seemed not to notice H1N1 is unfounded.
trump also said Monday that ",000 people" died in the H1N1 pandemic. The CDC estimates that ,469 people were killed by H1N1 between April 2009 and April 2010. Its estimate range is a minimum of 8,868 a maximum of 18,306, so trump's ",000" figure is plausible, but it's worth noting that it's toward the high end.

Trade with China
trump also spoke Monday about topics other than the coronavirus pandemic. He made false claims in rapid succession about trade with China.
Biggest trade deal
trump said, "We just signed a trade deal, it's the biggest deal probably ever made..."
Facts First: "Biggest" is vague, but experts say trump's "phase one" deal with China is not the biggest ever.
Alan Deardorff, a University of Michigan professor of international economics who focuses on trade, said it is smaller than both the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Uruguay Round that created the World Trade Organization in terms of the volume of trade they cover. Gary Clyde Hufbauer, a nonresident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said that George W. Bush granting China the status of permanent normal trade relations in 2001 was "far bigger" than trump's China deal, covering a far greater number of subjects (tariffs, non-tariff barriers, investment and others).
Never spent money
trump said China is now going spend billions of dollars on US agriculture and other products, "whereas China never spent money in our country. We spent money."
Facts First: This is nonsense. Since 1995, China has spent at least $10 billion every year on imported US goods. Since 2011, it is more than $100 billion per year.
And that spending on imports doesn't include tens of billions of dollars in foreign direct investment by China in the United States.

Trade deficit
trump said, "We had a deficit, a trade deficit, with China for years, of $500 billion, $400 billion..."
Facts First: There has never been a $500 billion trade deficit with China. The 2018 deficit was about $381 billion when counting trade in both goods and services; the goods and services deficit fell about $308 billion in 2019.
The deficit with China has not been $500 billion even if you only count trade in goods and ignoring trade in services. The deficit did exceed $400 billion in 2018 if you only count trade in goods -- it was about $420 billion -- but that had never happened before.

Jared Kushner - How lucky we are to have him!

How lucky we are!

The man and the hour have met.

In crises, there come moments that cry out for leadership. If only the right person will rise the call, then the course of history can be altered. Well, can there be any doubt that we have found that right person?

Into every age there comes this epoch-defining human being. The 19th century had Napoleon, the 18th, George Washington, the 20th, Einstein and Franklin Delano Roosevelt both. How lucky for the 21st century that we have someone who combines all their virtues and all their intellect and all their business acumen into a single slim body with a suit on it. And he’s barely 39 years old! And it just so happens, also, that he is the president’s -in-law!

What are the odds?

We would be fortunate if into this generation had been born a person capable of solving the problem of peace in the Middle East, or the opioid crisis, or how to make government work in an age of pandemic — but what are the odds that we would have all , and that they would turn out be the same man? Truly the gods have blessed us. Truly this is a towering intellect.

The amazing thing, too, is that if you were to listen to him talk, you would not think that this was a man who knew anything about anything. Perhaps to really understand his brilliance you must be related to him. At least there was one person who always believed in Jared Kushner, and fortunately for him, that person was the president’s -in-law, who through a strange coincidence was also himself.

Yes, thank heavens there was one person who always knew he could rise to any challenge, and that his mind was capable of absorbing any question, no matter how complex. Could Jared Kushner be the greatest genius who has ever lived? It’s a possibility that Jared Kushner cannot rule out. He has always basked in the serene confidence that he could do his own calculations and they would, in fact, be better than anyone else’s estimates. Just because they were different did not mean they were wrong. He is applying this approach now to a grave question: As Vanity Fair reported, he is “doing my own projections, and I’ve gotten a lot smarter about this. New York doesn’t need all the ventilators.” Thank goodness, because if someone is wrong about that, people will die.

Jared Kushner was wise enough to look at the problems that ultimately fall on a country’s government to solve, and think outside the box. Maybe, after all, the stockpile of ventilators and equipment was not for the states or the people who resided in them, but for some undefined “us” who was not the states! Maybe, after all, this is not a pandemic, in which people are dying, every day, but a good opportunity to teach recalcitrant states a lesson about leadership — and perhaps question the whole notion of whether we are a nation of states at all! Maybe, after all, this would be a good time to reframe governors seeking to save the lives of their citizens as freeloaders asking for some kind of handout! (”What you have all over the country is a lot of people are asking for things that they don’t necessarily need at the moment.") So many thoughts that would never have occurred to anyone else!

How fortunate we are to have someone leading us who is never in doubt and who always, as though by magic, alights on the one solution that has simultaneously never occurred to anyone and is absolutely correct. I am glad he does not combine humility with his other virtues, or he would have put someone else in charge, on the grounds that he could not possibly be the right person to solve every question. And then where would we be? Thank God that we elected a person who happened to know this wonderful man, whom otherwise no one would have elected or appointed to anything!

Thank you, Jared, for getting us to where we are now.

Before Herbert Hoover earned a reputation as a tragic failure, he had a reputation for heroic success—a can-do businessman who arrived in the presidency with no previous elective experience. He was one of the most celebrated men of his times. Then times changed.

“Ambition and anxiety both gnaw at him constantly,” the columnist Walter Lippmann wrote to Felix Frankfurter, then a law professor and later a Supreme Court justice, as Hoover floundered desperately during the early days of the Great Depression. “He has no resiliency. And if things continue to break badly for him, I think the chances are against his being able to avoid a breakdown. When men of his temperament get to his age without ever having had real opposition, and then meet it in its most dramatic form, it’s quite dangerous.”

Lippmann didn’t mean breakdown in a psychological sense so much as a political one—describing a leader who found himself trapped by experience and instincts that suddenly were irrelevant to the moment.

Now donald trump during the pandemic is giving a new generation reason to wonder whether he—like other presidents who suddenly find currents of history shifting violently before them—is on the verge of breakdown.

trump emphatically has faced real opposition, and reveled in it, on his path to power. But he has met earlier chapters of adversity, in politics and business, with reliance on traits—bluster, defiance, implacable self-promotion—that, however unorthodox, served him quite well in the old context.

Now the context has changed but—so far—trump has not, or to the extent he has tried it, has not lasted more than a few hours at a time. Admirers and foes alike have become so casually accustomed to this president’s shattering of norms in a contemporary political setting that people easily miss how bizarre these circumstances are in historical terms. Is there any equivalent example in American history of a president confronting a grave domestic or international crisis with a similar combination of impetuosity and self-reference?

trump: 'We're going to go through a very tough two weeks'

In just the past few days (who keeps track of time in self-quarantine?), trump has gone from shocking his own health experts with a prediction that church pews would be filled and the country “raring to go” by Easter to extending the national shutdown through April. He has questioned whether governors are exaggerating their need for medical equipment and then indignantly denied saying that the next day. He has boasted of the television ratings for his coronavirus briefings.

So what? That’s just trump, right? We are used to him by now.

True enough. But there is a difference between the current moment and the pre-corona past. Previously, his most flamboyant behavior was, for many of his admirers, an essential part of his appeal. It is unlikely that many trump supporters are genuinely enthusiastic about his parade of errant statements on coronavirus, from the claim in late February that the number of U.S. cases “within a couple of days is going to be down close to zero,” to his insistence earlier this month that, “Anybody that needs a test, gets a test,” even as the person shepherding the administration’s response, Vice President Mike Pence, was saying, “we don’t have enough tests today to meet what we anticipate will be the demand going forward."

The fact that trump’s style of boasting about himself and denouncing critics is thoroughly familiar is not necessarily reassuring when it is employed in circumstances that are radically unfamiliar.

If there is any common trait of successful presidents, it is what Lippmann called “resiliency”—the capacity for personal growth, for recalibration, and for principled improvisation in the face of new circumstances.

If there is any common trait of failed presidents, it is incapacity for growth—a reliance on old habits and thinking even when events demand the opposite.

The coronavirus drama, with 180,000 cases, rather than the 15 at the time trump made his “close to zero” prediction, is still closer to the beginning than the end. On Tuesday, he took a much more sober tone, saying: “I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We’re going through a very tough two weeks.” With some lucky breaks, combined with the policy shifts he and his health team have made, he could yet retain his title as the Houdini of his era.

Without those breaks, however, he could easily end up keeping company historically with Hoover (who promised that “prosperity is just around the corner”) and Lyndon B. Johnson (whose Vietnam generals fantasized about “light at the end of the tunnel”) as presidents who arrived in office with outsized personalities that shriveled as they failed to meet the political, practical, and ultimately psychic needs of a nation in crisis.

The phenomenon works in reverse: presidents who displayed leadership dimensions that were unseen by most observers, and possibly by the presidents themselves, until crisis summoned greatness. Lippmann famously described the man campaigning to be Hoover’s successor, Franklin D. Roosevelt, as “an amiable boy scout,” and “a pleasant man, who, without any important qualifications for the office, would very much like to be president.”

As Lippmann’s biographer, Ronald Steel, explained, the columnist’s critics never stopped rubbing his nose in that quote. But Lippmann lived four more decades insisting, accurately, “That I will maintain to my dying day was true of the Franklin Roosevelt of 1932.”

Adaptability was likewise a signature of the previous century’s greatest president. “I claim not to have controlled events but confess plainly that events have controlled me,” Abraham Lincoln said, describing his evolution during the Civil War on the abolition of slavery.

trump, by contrast, asked recently by a reporter to grade himself, said, “I’d rate it a 10, I think we’ve done a great job.”

But trump does not need to reach back in history for an example of a leadership style that doesn’t require a dubious pose of perfection to convey strength. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, who regularly shares the podium with trump at coronavirus briefings, has described often in interviews the vitriol targeted at him during the early days of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. Protesters were storming the National Institutes of Health campus and burning Fauci in effigy, because of frustrations with the pace of research on a cure. The activist Larry Kramer, whom Fauci now counts as a friend, was calling him a murderer. Fauci decided the protesters were right on some key points and urged they be integrated closely into the government’s response.

“The best thing I’ve done from a sociological and community standpoint was to embrace the activists,” Fauci said in an interview with Science Speaks in 2011. “Instead of rejecting them, I listened to them.”

Close your eyes and imagine trump saying that.

trumps 37 most mind-boggling lines from the Sunday coronavirus briefing
Posted:Mar 30, 2020 11:41 am
Last Updated:Apr 8, 2020 9:33 am
16336 Views

1. "Appreciate everybody being here, beautiful day in the Rose Garden, tremendous distance between chairs -- social distancing."
"Tremendous distance between chairs." And away we go!
2. "And as you know, even before this development, we've been doing more tests -- tests than any other country, anywhere in the world."
"The Lost Month: How a Failure Test Blinded by the U.S. COVID-19" -- The New York Times, March 28
3. "Let's see how it works. It may; it may not. But we may have some incredible results."
Here Trump is referencing experimental drug treatments for coronavirus. But really, this is him talking about his response every issue that arises during his presidency. It might work. It might not. But it could be incredible.
4. "We have some interesting things will be announced, I think over the next few weeks, but we'll see what happens."
Again, classic Trump. He hints at possible medical breakthroughs without offering any evidence. I hope he's not just bluffing but, if past is prologue, he probably is.
5. "Even though this is different, something is going , and you ought look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? How do you go from 10,000 to 300,000?"
In which the President of the United States suggests, with zero evidence, that hospitals in New York are somehow stealing masks or purposely asking for too many from the federal government. This is a truly outrageous charge. And deeply disrespectful of the medical professionals on the front lines fighting this virus.
6. "So, somebody should probably look into that, because I just don't see, from a practical standpoint, how that's possible to go from that to that."
"Somebody should probably look into that," says the President about an accusation he made without any proof.
7. "I hope I didn't get any of your in trouble, but it could be that they are in trouble. So they have to look at that in New York."
He. Just. Won't. Stop.
8. "Many of the states are stocked . Some of them don't admit it, but they have -- we have sent just so much -- so many things them and -- including ventilators."
No big deal, just the President casually accusing states of lying about their medical needs in the midst of a global pandemic. Very normal stuff!
9. "Today I spoke with Wolfgang Puck."
I did not see that coming! (Trump talked to the chef about how to save restaurants amid the economic slowdown caused by the coronavirus.)
10. "Think of it: 1 countries. Somebody said today that wasn't in this particular world -- they didn't know that we had that many countries. A hundred and fifty-one countries. That's something."
[Looks directly at camera, Jim Halpert-style]
11. "Something we did very well is, when we stopped the inflow from China at a very early level, that was a good thing to do, a great thing to do. We would have had thousands and thousands of more deaths."
The US now has more coronavirus cases than any nation in the world.
. "No, I want the people of New York check -- Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio -- that when a hospital that's getting 10,000 masks goes 300,000 masks during the same period -- and that's a rapid period -- I would like them check that. Because I hear stories like that the time."
So, because he "hear[s] stories like that the time," Trump felt comfortable suggesting that New York is lying about their protective medical equipment needs? OK.
. "So I think people should check that because there's something going , whether -- it's not -- I don't think it's hoarding; I think it's maybe worse than hoarding."
Worse than hoarding? Like, what? Selling them on a black market? Who knows -- because Trump never said.
. "Just like -- I'll never forget the day when a general came and said, "Sir" -- my first week in office -- 'we have no ammunition.'"
Nope!
. "It was just an aspiration. We actually will be hitting, potentially -- and this was with our meeting before -- on Easter, we probably -- they -- well, that could be a peak."
Trump is rewriting history here. At the time he said he hoped church pews would be full for Easter Sunday he never suggested that was an aspirational goal. He just said it.
. "So that was an aspirational number. I didn't say "Easter." I said, "It would be a great thing, if we could do it by Easter."
Here's exactly what Trump said on March 24 in a Fox News town hall in the Rose Garden: "I'd love to have it open by Easter, OK? I would love to have it open by Easter. I will tell you that right now. It's such an important day for other reasons, but I'll make it an important day for this, too. I would love to have the country opened and just raring go by Easter."
. "You know, I see things -- I see numbers. They don't matter ."
If you don't think poll numbers matter Trump, may I refer you his Twitter feed for the last five years.
18. "I mean, I know insurance companies better than anybody."
There a lot of things Trump knows "better than anybody."
19. "I didn't do that at . Read the statement. Read the statement. Read what I said. I said we're going look into 'possibly quarantine.' I didn't say we're 'going to quarantine.'"
The question here was whether Trump regretted threatening a quarantine of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Here's exactly what Trump said:
"I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE of developing 'hot spots', New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly."
20. "So the concept of quarantine was thrown out to . Really, would love do it -- they would love do it. And I thought it was too much to do, because the people are doing a great job with it."
, so the idea of a quarantine was someone else's idea, eh? And the President didn't want do it -- despite tweeting out the possibility his 70+ million followers? Riiiiiiight.
21. "I didn't say that."
This is how Trump responded a question about him telling Sean Hannity that some governors were requesting ventilators they didn't actually need. Here's him saying it: "And you know, they'd say, like Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo and others that say we want, you know, 30,000 of them, 30,000. All right. Think of this. You know, you go to hospitals, they'll have one in a hospital. And now, all of a sudden everybody's asking for these vast numbers." So, yeah.
22. "Why don't you act in a little more positive? It's always trying to 'get you.'"
Two things here. One, it's not the media's job to be "positive." It's our job to cover the story and hold people in power to account. Two, it's not "gotcha" journalism to ask the President why he said what he said last Friday about governors and ventilators.
23. "You didn't hear me. That's why you used to work for the Times and now you work for somebody else. Look, let me tell you something: Be nice. Don't be threatening."
In which the President of the United States tells an African American female reporter (Yamiche Alcindor) that a) she was removed from The New York Times for asking negative questions (she wasn't fired, she left to join PBS' "Newshour") b) she should be nice (again, not the media's job) and c) her question was "threatening" (it was wasn't -- it was about what Trump said two days ago). Unreal.
24. "When journalists get and ask questions that are so threatening -- we're the same team."
I shouldn't really need write this but: Holding people in power account is an act of patriotism.
25. "When I hear facemasks go from 10,000 300,000, and they constantly need more, and the biggest man in the business is, like, shocked."
Just a reminder: The reason mask requests are soaring is because we are dealing with a virus for which humans have no immunity and for which there is no vaccine.
26. "And remember, we started with a system that was broken. For many years, it was broken. And I'm not blaming the last administration."
[narrator voice] He actually is.
27. "We took over a dead, barren system. We took over a system that was obsolete. It was -- it was good for a tiny, little sample of people."
The key takeaway for Trump in all of this: It's not his fault! You can't blame him!
28. "We could have done it on Easter, but there was a good chance that if it's coming down or if it's still going -- maybe it's going be coming down by then."
[Jim Halpert stare]
29. "You know, again, because of what we've done and because of the fact that we've stopped the flow from China so early -- because the question is, from a lot of my friends, 'Why didn't we just wing it? Why didn't we just wing it?'"
Really??? Trump's friends were asking why we didn't just "wing" our response to a global pandemic?
30. "So you're going to have tremendous suicides, but you know what you're going to have more than anything else? drug addiction. You will see drugs being used like nobody has ever used them before."
In which the President tries to justify his now-walked-back claim that extended periods of social distancing would destroy the economy and cause more deaths than the virus if left to its own devices. Insanity.
31. "I spoke to great people today that have done a great job. And one day, at the top of their business, they're celebrity chefs, they've got the most successful restaurants, and in one day they have nothing."
"They're celebrity chefs."
32. "Anxiety causes, you know, disease, they say. A lot of people -- you're going to have tremendous."
So, uh, well, um, OK.
33. "But I didn't say that. I didn't say that."
The question -- from CNN's Jeremy Diamond -- was why Trump had said "if they don't treat you right, I don't call" about the nation's governors last week. Here's video of Trump saying exactly that.
34. "No, I don't call. No, I don't call the governor of Washington now."
So, Trump is saying he didn't say the thing he did but then admitting that he is actually not calling governors who he doesn't believe are appreciative enough of the help the federal government is providing? Truly mind-boggling stuff.
35. "I don't have to call because I'm probably better off not, because we don't get -- he's a failed presidential candidate. He's a nasty person. I don't like the governor of Washington."
"Modern day presidential"
36. "In 100 years, you could bet your life that he would never be here with CNN and all their cameras, if they're bad, because we help their ratings."
Totally false. In the midst of a global pandemic, it's the media's job to cover -- and contextualize -- what the President and his advisers are saying and doing. Ratings have zero to do with it. Zero.
37. "Unfortunately, the enemy is death. It's death. A lot of people are dying, so it's very unpleasant. It's a very unpleasant thing to go through."
This feels like a good place to end.

*this is why he has yet meet anyone

Just in from Teocalli93

....I am looking for a discreet/periodic fuck buddy. Sex and NSA. No dating/going , etc. Get together when lives/schedules permit and do it again if we enjoy each other. I am away from Tucson on a trip right now and will be back late December. If interested, let know and we can arrange meet. Thanks

My retort:
You are pathetic

You do not belong on this site. Go to Match or the others. AgoraCosmopolitan Dating is for

Poor guy is so upset with himself, he cant even spell

TUCSONLUSTYPAIR Pair of what?

Standard nonsense about how awesome he is etc in prior messages

Me: It is always fun draw out the actual personality of an individual ...you really have no chance of meeting anyone

LUSTYPAIR: I get at least fifty messages a you are not as smart as you think you are.good luck

: Fifty

Lets take a the first correspondence of our 'friend' Silverado640:

" there Nos, Am I kind hearted? yes, Freaky with mild kink? yes...and if you are submissive then hold to your boot straps, dominant and fun to be around. in town on the 4th & 5th with a splash of 6th, next week for days on this trip. Bring all your toys, lotions and silk rope if that rocks your boat. For hours of lusty ravishing your body...every inch of you....after a drink in the hotel bar and conversation to dispel any thoughts or notions of yes or no. 6,1, 225 lbs, handsome and full of energy. Too many have fallen for me after they get some good love, attention and affection, including fun and playful banter. Additionally it keeps bitter & sour ladies, gays and other undesirables showing the true hurt and wounded souls away from further problems and issues I don't wish to deal with. Whatever your past has been, take the road and appreciate life. Most likely being here at AgoraCosmopolitan Dating is not for you, however I did find my prior wife here many ago. No doubt you have many redeeming values, your beauty and attractive appearance is one, let it shine through, beauty and brains is a fabulous combo. Sound good?"

She gives the same answer “do you want work our marriage”?
