COVID-19 Briefings Officially Become Trump Rallies As POTUS Declares Himself ‘The People’s Voice’

It has always been clear that President Donald Trump gets a rush from his raucous rallies. However, since those cannot be held in the middle of a global pandemic, he has found a new way to indulge his out of control narcissism: the daily coronavirus briefings he and his team holds at the White House.

On Friday, Trump took to Twitter to once again focus on his own ratings from those press briefings rather than the crisis, and things got even more bizarre than ever. He called the briefings “The People’s Voice” in a tweet:

“Because the T.V. Ratings for the White House News Conference’s are the highest, the Opposition Party (Lamestream Media), the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats &, of course, the few remaining RINO’S, are doing everything in their power to disparage & end them. The People’s Voice!”

Trump then seemed to insinuate that stock market numbers meant that COVID-19 was going the way of the dodo bird as we speak:

“This week, in only 4 days, we had the biggest Stock Market increase since 1974. We have a great chance for the really big bounce when the Invisible Enemy is gone!”

If anyone needed more proof that this crisis is just another chance for Trump to stroke his own ego, here it is. Trump has, through other administration officials, also expressed anger over the fact that many news outlets have taken to cutting away from the briefings as he spews dangerous misinformation, all the while having people listen to those such as infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci.

This is an outrage, and that is putting it generally. People are literally dying by the hour, and all Trump can think about is how good it all makes him look. Disgraceful, but that is what we have come to.
