Trump Didn’t Get Enough Praise at Fox Town Hall So He’s Holding Another COVID-19 Rally Tonight
Donald Trump has been talking about “reopening” the country soon over the serious economic hurt throughout the country, but of course those concerns need to be balanced out by the public health and safety concerns.
Today the president set Easter as a target date to ease social distancing guidelines and get the country back to work.
But Dr. Mehmet Oz actually questioned the president on whether that’s really a good idea:
“A good surgeon knows after the surgery when his patient can be discharged, and these 15 days are like a big operation on America. But a great surgeon knows when there’s a complication after discharge, so if we can meet the goal of fixing America and getting it back on its feet by Easter, I’d love to know exactly how you’d know that is safe from a medical perspective. What’s gonna indicate that we might have to pull back a tiny bit in case we have a relapse?”
Trump conceded “a thing like that could happen” but expressed optimism they could still do what they’re doing “from a work environment instead of an environment where everybody’s locked up.”
He said it may take a greater toll on people if shutdowns continue, alluding to his previous comments claiming claiming there could be “suicide by the thousands.”
TRUMP CLAIMS MORE WILL DIE BY SUICIDE DURING QUARANTINE THAN CVIRUS
Pressed by Dr Oz about how, medically, he’ll know if sending people back from quarantine is the right decision, #Trump claims—without any evidence—that more people would die from suicide during that time: pic.twitter.com/yzAY3BQoMs

And I guess Trump didn’t get all the love and adulation he wanted at the town hall, so he decided to schedule another daily press conference for 5:30pm. These press conferences have become de facto Trump rallies, since the president can’t hold rallies during the coronavirus pandemic.
There is now a coronavirus task force briefing scheduled for 5:30 PM.

Twitter had some thoughts:
It’s not a Coronavirus task force briefing. It’s a campaign event.

If Dr. Fauci is not there, then it is nothing but more propaganda and the networks should not broadcast it.

Oh no. Someone please make it stop. Too much TV time today for the malignant narcissist. We don’t need this. Let the medical experts speak.
