GUTHRIE: When was your last negative coronavirus test?

TRUMP: "Well, I test quite a bit."

GUTHRIE: Did you test the day of the debate?

TRUMP: "I don't know. I don't even remember."

G: Did you take a test the day of the debate?

T: "I probably did."
"Possibly I did. Possibly I didn't." -- Trump on if he took a coronavirus test the day of the first presidential debate
TRUMP: "Just the other day they came out with a statement that 85 percent of the people that wear masks catch [coronavirus]."

GUTHRIE: "They didn't say that. I know that study."

TRUMP: "That's what I heard and that's what I saw."
Asked why he doesn't try to at least set an example by wearing a mask, Trump says, "but many people are catching it."
"Excess mortality, we're a winner" -- Trump says the US is "a winner" compared to other countries with regard to the coronavirus, despite 217,000 dead
Here’s Trump making a total mess of the question about when his last negative coronavirus test was during the NBC town hall
TRUMP: "We were expected to lose 2,200,000 people."

GUTHRIE: "That 2 million figure, though, is if you literally did nothing."
Asked to denounce QAnon, Trump refuses to do so and instead says, "They are very much against pedophilia, they fight it very hard."
TRUMP on QAnon: "What I do hear about is they are very strongly against pedophilia, and I agree with that, I do agree with that."
GUTHRIE: Just this week you retweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that Joe Biden orchestrated to have SEAL Team 6 killed.

TRUMP: "That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody." [as if that justifies it!]
Here’s video of Trump refusing to denounce QAnon at the NBC town hall
Here’s Trump defending retweeting insane conspiracy theories
"Did you ever hear of a word called negotiation? We're negotiating." -- Trump's explanation for his position on a stimulus bill changing back and forth repeatedly in recent weeks
GUTHRIE: "On behalf of voters, who do you owe $421 million to?"

TRUMP: *talks about how awesome his properties are*

G: "Are you confirming that you do owe some $400 million dollars?"

T: "What I'm saying is it's a tiny percentage of my net worth."
TRUMP: "I will probably, because it's so easy to solve, and if you'd like to do -- I will let you know who I owe whatever small amount of money."
"That's a statutory number" -- Trump's weird explanation for only paying $750 in federal taxes in 2016
Trump on his meeting with Amy Coney Barrett and if he expects her to rule for him if SCOTUS hears a challenge to the election results: "I didn't talk about any of the obvious things that you could talk about, and I think a lot of people in my position might."
"I think, depending on what happens with Roe v. Wade, I think that perhaps it could get sent down to the states, and the states would decide" -- Trump
Here’s Trump at the NBC town hall trying to make it seem like owing more than $400 million is a totally normal thing
Savannah Guthrie closes by asking Trump to explain why undecided voters should vote for him. He begins his response by saying, "Because I've done a great job."
This was the most cringe moment of the NBC Trump town hall
The contrast between Trump lying his ass off on NBC and then flipping the dial to ABC and hearing Biden talk about how "the biggest carbon sink in the world is the Amazon" is really something.
At the very moment Trump embraced QAnon on NBC, Biden was down the dial on ABC talking up the importance of science and public health vox.com/2020/10/15/215…
