4. Providing an audience just encourages him.

I don't watch them, I don't read about them, I don't offer any opinion about them. If everyone ignored them, they'd stop.

8. I just discovered yesterday I could get it streaming NBC News Now. The networks quit covering

them and all I have is antenna and streaming. I thought I couldn't get the daily shit show and was kind of disgusted when I found that and knew I couldn't resist. Today is different. Good thing I impulse bought a bunch of microwave popcorn. I can't wait.

13. White House streams it too.

It is hosted by www.pscp.tv and the link is posted about an hour before on the White House twitter feed.

twitter.com/WhiteHouse

I've left the https:// out of the link to keep DU from accessing that account.

The stream from that source has been much better for me than through the news media.

9. Although scheduled for 5:00 p.m., be prepared for delay.

These things NEVER start on time. Five o'clock means somewhere between 5:10 and 6:30 in Chump time.

10. Sometimes you just have to see things with your own eyes.



On the other hand, I highly recommend self monitoring for signs you are getting stressed out or too angry. If it gets to be a problem, exit stage left. There are probably some Bugs Bunny cartoons on somewhere. Better to watch Looney Tunes than Looney Times.

12. Time has no meaning for Trump.

He is always late.

It is on purpose.

He controls the show.

He enjoys keeping people waiting.

He thinks it is a way to show his power or importance.

The briefing is usually 30 minutes to over an hour late.

14. Empty podium at 5:00 PM

Electrons will be wasted for an indefinite amount of time. Then something happens that you can't make up. Then talking heads wonder what they just witnessed. Then some dust settles for 24 hours. Rinse. Repeat.

17. Those of us who torture ourselves watching is because

we don't want to miss the big blow up when it finally happens. Unfortunately there's no bottom to what Americans appear to allow the guy to do. So he gets up there everyday crowing like a rooster as though nothing is wrong.

23. I used to think that...

now I think even when he acts like he's mad... I think it's an act.

he loves these bully sessions with the press. he looks forward to them.

The daily White House coronavirus task force briefing is the one portion of the day that Mr. Trump looks forward to, although even Republicans say that the two hours of political attacks, grievances and falsehoods by the president are hurting him politically.

Mr. Trump will hear none of it. Aides say he views them as prime-time shows that are the best substitute for the rallies he can no longer attend but craves.

Mr. Trump rarely attends the task force meetings that precede the briefings, and he typically does not prepare before he steps in front of the cameras. He is often seeing the final version of the dayís main talking points that aides have prepared for him for the first time although aides said he makes tweaks with a Sharpie just before he reads them live. He hastily plows through them, usually in a monotone, in order to get to the question-and-answer bullying session with reporters that he relishes.

Maybe he'll suggest drinking gas. Oil is so cheap that if this could be proven effective, it would be a cheap cure.
