2. Swan deserves to be recognized, from the little I saw he pressed Trump.

The rest of the people that interviewed Trump before should be ashamed and those that will in the future should take note.

3. Is there a link to the full interview?

I'd like to see this one. He's such a moron.

And what the fuck is with that hair? Mullet in back, cotton-candy wing in front. He's absolutely ridiculous looking.

And the toilet seat pose? Who sits like that? He's a disgrace.

HBO Max is a brand new streaming platform, but you might already have access if you have an active HBO NOW subscription or you subscribe to HBO through a TV or mobile provider. Let’s get you up and streaming!

40. HBO Max is their new streaming app.

HBO on cable is still just HBO.

HBO Max replaced HBO Go (old streaming app for those with a cable subscription) and HBO Now (old subscription streaming app for those without cable). Theoretically. It isn't available (yet) on Roku or Amazon Fire Stick, so a lot of people don't have access, and some things are only going to be available on the app. In short, it's a big, confusing mess!

scientists the testing numbers, locations, and frequencies they want be the right amount of sampling for them to develop infection control plans?

29. Exactly...no one ever says, "What do you think the difference between

Conducting a LOT of testing vs. Conducting the RIGHT amount of testing is?"

Like his style though. It's a quick "what you just said was crazy" style. Without being openly combative. And he knows facts...like mail ins have been used since the Civil War. But the biggest plus on this interview is that trump can't turn his mic off or drown out questioner with helicopter generator noise.

30. Of course, that's his SOP

That's been his S-O-P standard operating practice all along, since way before the virus hit.

Occasionally someone will post an old interview where Chump is BS-ing whomever about whatever. I've seen so many of them but I'm not going to post one here. His standard behavior is to make some bullshit claim (that supports him) and then back it up with vague references to experts or books that don't exist. Of course he can't name any of them, but until now nobody asked him.

18. With apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley


The United States of America in 2020

An old, mad, stupid, despised, and lying President;
His children, the dregs of their dull race, who flow
Through public scorn,—mud from a muddy spring;
Republicans who neither care nor feel nor know,
But leechlike to their fainting country cling
Till they drop, blind in blood, without a blow.
A people shot and beaten in th' urban battlefield
By a military, which liberticide and prey
Makes as a two-edged sword to all who wield;
Golden and sanguine laws which tempt and slay;
Religion Christless, Godless—a book sealed;
A senate, Time’s worst statute, unrepealed—
Are graves from which a glorious Phantom may
Burst, to illumine our tempestuous day.

I'd really like someone to ask him about bad things that went under radar. Things less partisan. Like "why haven't you paid campaign bills to cities for your rallies?" And "why did you reverse the Obama reg that stopped coal companies from dumping sludge with cancer causing materials into water?"

54. Here's Kaitlan Collins asking Trump "Who told you that?" That question is sunshine on Count Trumpula

She asked him twice. It's a fantastic way to nail Trump. He can't answer it, because he's either lying or getting info from a complete loser (like Stephen Miller or the demon seed doctor) and he knows it. It's a question that should just be asked every time he says anything whatsoever.

It implies he's spreading lies, either by making them up or because he's possibly been lied to. It completely shreds him. Lying to the president would be a terrible thing, and someone who did it would have to pay for it. The president making up lies himself? That's just as bad.

Yet they keep talking to him. Here's a clip from his interview with Kudlow, in which the pseudo-economist tries to blame the higher rate of shuttering for Black businesses as related to the recent "violent protests", the old Blacks-are-hurt-more-by-Blacks canard, to which Swan said "no, this is from April." I'd say never take a canard to a swan fight.
