McEnany's stupid comment will be addressed by reporters when, and if, she ever holds a briefing. It will be interesting to hear her response which I expect will follow her boss' tactic and she just attacks the reporter.

Response?

Only a very bad, nasty, reporter, with very low ratings, would even ask.

Remarkably, Ms. McEnany made these errant remarks over a month after the first COVID patient "presented to an urgent care clinic in Snohomish County, Washington, with a 4-day history of cough and subjective fever."

And yet both Carson and the ex-party planner (name?) still have their HUD/HHS positions.
The upside of keeping your mouth shut and letting the career pros (ie: "deep state") go about their jobs.
Each though has a multi-billion dollar remit. An audit when we get through this would not be a bad idea.

Trump should hire our own Zig.
Jim Acosta, Fake News: "The president said this would go away 'like a miracle' in April."
Zig: "The president said April, but it sounds like you're assuming he meant this year."

We'll go from no press conferences to marathon conferences; WH correspondents will lose the will to live.

And in isolation for Covid-19 exposure, according to a post in another thread. Schadenfreude feels awesome.
People in Trump's circle should be taking notes. If you do what he wants and it makes him look bad, you'll be fired.

True, but also something of a truism, since if you do pretty much anything that makes him look bad you'll be fired.

Here it comes, from the most passive-aggressive boss the planet has ever seen.
Trump retweets call to fire Anthony Fauci after the coronavirus expert says earlier measures ‘could have saved lives’

The country will go crazy if he does that. He might even have some of his Trumptrash distancing themselves from him.

Such a move will be forgotten in a couple of news cycles as Trump does something else just as horrible or worse.

I'm not so sure of that. Fauci has become the most trusted person in the US Government. If he starts giving interviews and advising the public after being dismissed, Trump is going to have a problem.

I wonder if Trump has had Fauci sign an NDA? Probably has, and probably thinks he can enforce it.

You are not seeing how this will happen. It will be Trump's followers who will be demanding that the traitorous and wrong Dr. Factless must be fired. Trump is just doing what everyone told him needed to be done after Dr. Factless lost his way under pressure.

It won't matter. By the time he is fired Trump sill have discredited him with his followers.

Got your tenses wrong. Aside from that you're pretty much on target.

The Americans won't care what Trump's rational was. Only the Trumptrash will pay attention to Trump's excuse. It's the reaction of the Americans Trump has to worry about.

Sadly, the Trumptrash currently number over 40% of the population and the Americans don't seem to vote very reliably. I hope both of these change by November.

Also, what he wants mostly looks bad, so if you're foolish enough to work for Trump, you're pretty much screwed whatever you do. If you don't do what he wants, you'll be fired. If you do what he wants, sooner or later (probably sooner), what you do will make him look bad, and you'll be fired anyway. It explains the ridiculous turnover rate in his administration.

Not exactly inside the White House, but because of the White House:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/22/polit...ent/index.html

(Head of vaccine development reassigned to lesser position. He says it's because he didn't endorse Cloroquine.)

Given this public statement, I think private sector employment is in his future.

Doesn't matter. The PDJT doesn't even know the guy. The guy who's running the company doing the main research for the vaccine. Never heard of him.

Douglas Loverro, NASA's deputy administrator for human spaceflight. The timing is weird, just a week before SpaceX is to return Americans to space on an American rocket.

Not necessarily political, however: NASA recently announced three candidates for landing humans on the moon in 2024. (Which, BTW, is about as likely as a cow jumping over it.) One of the candidates is a team led by Blue Origin. Which is owned by Jeff Bezos. Who also owns the Washington Post. FAKE NEWS!

Loverro speaks of a "mistake" he made, but has said nothing more specific. To me, that does seem to suggest something personal rather than professional. I guess we'll see.
