Here are a couple of items from the Daily Beast. Trump keeps getting weirder and weirder.
This F*cking Shit Again’—Trump Haunts His Team With Diversions to Demon Sperm and Obsessions With Faucis. The president wanted to flood the zone with press conferences again. But the early discipline is fading.
It’d been three months since Donald Trump had given his staff a break. For weeks, some of his top advisers had repeatedly warned him that his madcap performances at the White House’s coronavirus press briefings were tanking his poll numbers and helping Joe Biden, until finally the president decided to stop doing them. Senior administration officials and task-force members were elated—their infamously stubborn boss had actually taken their advice.
But in the months following the cessation of those pressers, Trump’s numbers—nationally and in critical swing states—have kept falling. And according to two sources who’d spoken to the president this month, he began insisting that it was time to start going with his gut, again.
The president restarted the press briefings last week, after having asserted to his aides that the resulting three months of political foundering had vindicated his instincts to “control the agenda” and to flood the media as much as possible. His return to the lectern, he predicted, would help his poll numbers.
But while the early results suggested that maybe Trump could keep a lid—even if just for a few seconds—on his self-destructive impulses, increasingly, the worst fears of the president’s staff are being realized.
“When he started doing them again [starting last week], my thought was, ‘Oh, great, this fucking shit again,’” said a senior administration official who works closely with the White House coronavirus task force. “And now we’re all talking about demon ejaculation.”
