The briefings are great for information and national morale. I wish Trump wouldn't transparently pat himself on the back but that is just who he is. I want Trump to be successful because if Trump succeeds in fighting this virus, so does America.

Accusations. Pffff. Sounds just like the Kavanaugh accusations, Russia accusations and impeachment accusations. That is to say, sounds like nonsense.

Trump is not held to the same standards as those before him, especially with the media. When hurricane Sandy hit and Obama visited NJ and Chris Christie met him on the run way, a photo of them hugging was put out with Obama being touted as a hero for stepping in and providing Federal Aid. Now Trump is giving states federal aid and even democratic governors who hate him are telling the media they appreciate all the Feds are doing to help and that it is being handled well. The media interviewers are asking "but is it enough?"..just fishing for bad news to put out. No one asked Chris Christie "is it enough", because hero Obama had stepped in. Trump cant win. If he would have come up with a cure by himself 1 week into this, they would have found a problem with it. It's going to be great having another 4 years with someone who actually follows through with what he says he is going to do!

These so called briefings are pretty hollow. They have 2min worth substance. The worst part is the praising and Trump patting himself on his back, so lame. Trump TV. Makes Bush look good.

So what... These corporations are helping. What's wrong with free advertising for corporations that actually make products in the USA? Offended by a statement about God? Tough titties! Deal with it! This country could use a little Divine hope.

A guaranteed pathway to atheism. Yes, yes, READ the bible. All the bs will become apparent. Stay safe, though.

The article says "the internet" is confused. I'm confused, do they mean Al Gore? I mean 1,000 years from now will a book read: In the beginning Gore created the PC and the modem. And Gore said, Let there be Internet and there was internet. And Gore saw the WWW, and it was good; and Gore divided the light web from the darkness. 🙏

Maybe if the people being angry about "thoughts and prayers" would read the bible, they would understand what prayers do! Got could even read something lighter on the topic of you don't want to read the bible.

Personally, I think religion should be left out but he is welcome to his beliefs and to voice them. As for the "advertising", those companies earned it by producing the products that are in high demand.

Same media with headline. . NYT "Doctors Say Shortage of Protective Gear Is Dire During Coronavirus Pandemic". But this guy is a jerk for making masks?

is it 2021 yet?

Chris Sommerfeldt’s tweet captures the moment perfectly: “After hyping his company for a few minutes, Mike Lindell, the founder of MyPillow, says "God gave us grace" by electing Trump. This is for some reason happening at a White House briefing on the coronavirus that has killed thousands of people in the U.S.” We get a government sponsored corporate commercial with a side of ass kissing when all we need are more masks, ventilators, gloves, test kits, etc. Truly dystopian, sadly reality.

He could run an ad for his hotels instead of discussing the COVID-19 pandemic and his worshippers would fully support him. Why is the media still talking about Big Don as if he’s held to the same standard as those who’ve come before him? His friend and personal lawyer, William Barr has made it completely clear that the President of the United States is now and will always be above the law.
