Fake News 101

Here’s three suggestions to make Donald Trump’s life easier:

(1) Don’t appear at the Coronavirus Task Force briefings. This will be tough since you didn’t like having a press secretary hold daily briefings in the same room where now you and Dr. Birx and your good friend “Tony” appear every day. There are people in the room who know more about a specific topic than you do. To do other wise, makes the entire event a Reality TV Show (Hint: it isn’t).

(2) There are three branches of government. You’re just one of the trio. Having “the total authority” to supersede governors seems a little silly when you earlier said let them decide what is needed, when it’s needed and why it’s needed. When you’re not watching Fox News or tweeting, check out the 10th Amendment.

(3) The world knows how “fantastic-incredible” and all the other adjectives you attribute to your work. From now on, just call Sean Hannity every night and the world will learn all the more.

*And a bonus suggestion: Just shut up. Facts are available from people smarter than you and can be provided in 20 minutes max. And the’ll be available at the time it is announced they’ll be available, unlike every task force briefing that begins as much as 90 minutes later than announced.

I know, he’s watching TV instead of reading. Melania? Can you have a sitdown with him?
