What Trump wants to signal with his coronavirus town hall at the Lincoln Memorial

If it seems odd to stage a town hall with no in-person audience at the Lincoln Memorial, a site for huge rallies and events in more normal times, you're missing the point: President Trump's plan for Sunday night is packed with strategic signaling.

Driving the news: Fox News said this week that the president will sit for a two-hour event on emerging from the coronavirus pandemic, called "America Together: Returning to Work," to be co-hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

"We wanted a powerful image of American strength and the idea of what reopening looks like," a White House aide tells Axios.

Worth noting: Trump staged a July 4 tribute on the memorial's steps last year.

1. dear guy in the sky

can we have some lightning and heavy downpours. Perhaps a few hundred thousand chiggers descending on that end of the Mall at that time?

Thanks in advance,

OTC.

2. Great idea, America returning to work.

Meanwhile as testing for places where people work together is finally happening to grim results it certainly time to open the floodgates. Will the Nobel prize commission be on hand.

5. He's going to need...

a filler act to stretch time while he's on his trips to the Adderall mirror.

I can't imagine him sitting for more than 30 minutes at a time in his current state.

9. there's gonna be some

absolute word salad gold uttered that day. Totally beyond all comprehension of anything that's been muttered, uttered, or thrown out to the masses. If you think Sarah had a way with words, you ain't seen nothing yet.

I hope someone tapes the spittle flying and the gnats buzzing around his head.

But again,

Bring the plague on to that end of the Mall.
