The White House is devoting significant energy today to trying to justify Trump's unscientific mouth noises about how masks actually can be bad
"I'm not going to give you a readout of what our health care plan looks like and who's working on it. if you want to know, come work here at the White House" -- Kayleigh McEnany
There have been two questions at this press briefing about TikTok
normal stuff here
Asked to explain why the US has more than 20 percent of the world's Covid deaths despite having only 4 percent of the population if Trump's response has been so great, Kayleigh McEnany makes false statements about how US excess mortality stacks up relative to Europe

The Trump Superspreader Tour 2020 comes tonight to Fayetteville, North Carolina. Follow for a video thread. Image
Trump begins by saying nice things about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump's audience isn't thrilled about it but politely refrains from booing. But he immediately pivots to how he plans to quickly fill the seat, prompting huge applause & chants of "fill that seat" that he encourages.
"We are going to call them protests against stupidity," Trump says of his superspreader rallies, without any sense of irony

On topic of when he'll nominate a replacement for RBG, Trump tells reporters "there's been many occasions where, frankly, it turned out to be during a presidential year ... but in all cases they went forward." Merrick Garland could not be immediately reached for comment.
Maybe I am missing something but it blows my mind that numerous White House reporters on this day of all days asked Trump questions about TikTok
Trump dismisses Susan Collins saying she thinks the next president should pick RBG's replacement: "We won and we have an obligation as the winners to pick who we want ... we're here right. Right now, we're here."

Sounds like FBI Director Wray should probably make sure his LinkedIn account is up to date and his resume is fresh
"I did not like [Wray's] answers yesterday, and I'm not sure he did either" -- for the second time in two days, Trump claims that congressional testimony made by a top government official was somehow erroneous because he disagrees with it
Trump dismisses a question about the milestone of 200,000 Americans dying from coronavirus, claiming that up to 3.5 million would've died without him. (That number is derived from models assuming his government did absolutely nothing about the pandemic.)

... come again?
Note how Trump's answer here has absolutely nothing to do with the question he was asked
Asked why the Postal Service's plan to send masks to every household never came to fruition, Trump says "I don't know. I don't run it." Somehow he winds up spreading baseless conspiracies about mail voting.

The Trump Superspreader Tour 2020 has come to Mosinee, Wisconsin. And irony has already been murdered as "Fortunate One" plays before Trump's speech.
Your taxpayer dollars, used as a prop for Trump's reelection campaign
Trump is slurring and sounds tired
