    In a recent time summary of the topics discussed by president Trump we get a clear view of the kind of president he really is.

    - two hours on attacks
    - 45 minutes praising himself and team
    - 9 minutes promoting hydroxychloroquine
    - 4.5 minutes offering sympathy for victims

    I would also include 0 minutes of useful information and I would like to know how many times has he reversed his opinion with the newest opinion being what he meant all along.

    Sorry it was a CNN report. But it seems fairly consistent with what I have seen.

    And how many minutes of inspiring leadership to unify the nation in defeating this disease together?

    How does it make you feel about democratic elections realizing that 40+% of American voters will be solidly behind him no matter how he conducts himself?

    While the scientific analysis is appreciated...
    Do you know anybody in power that does give good briefings?

    Governor Newsom here in Cali has been doing a good job with his daily briefings, I'd say.

    While Donald J. Trump's briefings will go down as some of America's saddest moments, IMO New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's briefings are top notch.

    And he continues to be defended and praised by those who worship him. I'll never understand it.

    He needs to learn to shut the heck up. It's unacceptable that he placed Pence in lead of the task force, but, won't yield to him to update the nation. The idiotic and dangerous things that come out of his mouth stem from ego. It's not like he doesn't have renowned professionals to trust with updating the nation on the science of the situation.

    His arrogance and stupidity are deplorable.

    November can't come fast enough.

    I will say that I watched almost all of them, very assiduously -- and at least anecdotally the numbers appear pretty realistic.

    I confess, I was not sitting here taking notes and references. However, all of those pressers are available on Youtube for anybody with the stomach to sit through them again...and if they were to do so, I'm willing to bet that they would report just as I have.

    You're welcome.

    My own personal feeling is that Biden has at his disposal an absolute goldmine of material in those many hours of briefings -- all readily available. Even though I'm not American, I was personally absolutely appalled at some of the exchanges that I saw, and some of the comments that he made. Certainly, at no point -- and I mean this most sincerely -- at no point did he ever display anything like what I would call leadership.

    It is scary. I have some friends who still support Trump even with everything he has said. I point out the outrageous things he says and they agree it is bad. When asked why do you still support him, I get the answers are usually about him being good for the economy and fear about the democrats. So they are willing to ignore his misinformation and his lies, recognize he is moving us backwards in the environment, and ignore his racist remarks all so that there income and economic status can be maintained.

    That's true. Too bad it's mostly directed for the benefits of the unions and fellow cronies.

    For sure.

    It will be very interesting to see how a non-articulate man with a drifting thought process squares up with President Trump during the final debates.

    The lefts potential champion in chief whom I might add befits the party beautifully in all its glorious character. I do admire the optimism.
