Okay, y'all here you go: the official #Trump National Address thread. The address is scheduled to start in about ten minutes. Let's do this thing.
Rumor has it the speech is a Kusher/Miller joint effort so gird your girdables, everybody. This could get real REAL bad.

Okay here we go. We're less than a minute in and he's already out of breath. That's not great.

#Trump: It only matters how you respond and we have been responding rapidly since the very beginning. Our team is the best in the world.

Your team insisted it was a hoax for weeks. Try again.

#Trump: We are restricting all travel and all things from Europe to the United States for 30 days, starting on Friday at midnight...these restrictions will not apply to the UK.

UM. What?

#Trump: The risk for the elderly is very very high. Elderly Americans should avoid non-essential travel and large crowded areas.

Says the elderly American who is insisting on continuing to hold his rallies.

#Trump: I will be taking emergency action which is unprecedented to protect workers who might be impacted by the virus.

...doesn't say exactly what that will be. I predict bailouts for his buddies.

#Trump: This is not a financial crisis, this is just a temporary moment of time that we will overcome together as a nation.

There you are, Miller. I was wondering when you'd show up.

#Trump: I will never hesitate to take necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of the American people.


#Trump: The virus will not have a chance against us.

...does he not know it's already killing people here?

Aaaaaand the speech is over! That was short.

Dude was speeding through the teleprompter so I wasn't able to comment on each of his "instructions," but that was...weird. Even for #Trump.

He seriously seems to believe that we're still waiting for the virus to get here and that tax cuts will help stop it. It was freaky.

Also: Nobody (and nothing?) from Europe (including countries that don't have any reported cases yet) can come here for any reason for 30 days, but travel to/from the UK--where they have 400+ reported cases of the virus--is totally fine?

#Trump also insisted that the risk to "Average" Americans is "very very very low," and average adults probably won't get it but if they do, eh, no big, so they shouldn't worry at all?

This is what happens when he talks to bankers instead of doctors.
No mention of whether or not he or anybody in his administration has been tested, even though #Trump is a member of the demo that is most severely impacted by the #Coronavirus.
Seriously, y'all. It was really really weird.
