    Maybe no one else is interested, but I am impressed with Trump's press conferences. Several things. How mature and fair he has been. How smart, knowledgeable, and poised his WH coordinator is. Clearly her IQ alone exceeds that of the press in its entirety. How patently venal and small minded the press is as they repeatedly ignore news and substantive questions to ask be gotchas and how casually Trump swats them away. I have long supported his policies, but only now do I see him as something more than a self absorbed showman given to constant exaggerations. Do others see this?

        Will Biden catch it sniffing hair?

        I agree with everyone here......I do think Trump is much better off the cuff when he is allowed to mentally free flow versus having to consistently look down at a script....I have noticed he occasionally stumbles over words and does look tired but its because he cares about us and wants America to get through this....plus I don't think he sleeps anyway....the dude tweets at 430am....he is a machine....

        One fun fact you won't hear from the MSM....he actually has more votes through last night's primaries than Biden and he is practically running unopposed haha

          Nobody knows any neatly effective way to handle this virus outbreak from secretive face-save China. I'd rather have Trump and his team working on it. No epidemiologists have stepped forward with "take-charge" strategies that are pragmatic. Terrible occurrence this spandemic, but I believe we have the best at working it all out and leaving us a future that hasn't taken a big permanent socialistic entrenchment step. The American economy needs to roar back to success and Trumpublicans are the only level-headed leaders for that.

            Deborah Birx is the most authoritative expert on Corona virus that I have seen.

              This is EXACTLY what I am seeing. Someone has finally gotten through to him or he understands the severity of this and knows exaggeration is the last thing needed...........
              I think he has finally realized he needs to STFU and let experts talk. I have been watching the last few and he has some smart folks giving out information and he is encouraging the media to question those people. It makes him come across MUCH better. And this is probably a great thing during this time...........

                Many opinions on handling this coronavirus. Trump gathers certain experts with "non-socialist" ideals. That still goes to credit Trump's leadership style. How many congressional "study committees" would the Dems have selected?

                Obama would have everyone in the room break up into small groups, write down their suggestions on a yellow note pad, then regroup afterwards to compare notes.

                The verdict:

                  A few posts earlier today in the Wuhan thread, several of us noted Trump doing exactly that 'swatting' when ABC reporter Cecilia Vega brought up(as her only question I think) the 'racist' inference when Trump called it the "Chinese Virus". Noooo---she couldn't ask a question pertaining to policy, plans, options,etc...procedures Trump/others have in the works for beating this thing. You know...updates on status IS the whole intent of these pressers. Nooooo....she has to go after something as asinine and irrelevant as being politically correct when speaking of the virus.

                  He swatted with perfection when he told her "cause it comes from Chiiiiina", and then moved right along to the next reporter. He does this stuff with perfection and plays those MSM reporters like a Stadivarius violin.:yes:

                    I personally think both personalities/demeanors are fine...sometimes you don't have to be "presidential" and in times like these, it's probably wise if you are....it won't change the constant hate and ridicule from the MSM and the left but it was/has been nice to see nonetheless....but I am impressed he has seemingly swallowed his ego a little and has in some cases actually admitted on live TV he doesn't know the answer to a question and defers to one of his team members...it's refreshing

                      Stuff like that is borderline pornography for me. I still love watching those 2016 Election Night Liberal Media Meltdown compilation videos. That night was pretty much the most wickedly funny thing that's ever happened in world history as far as I'm concerned.

                          As I watch this Trump PC today, I fully anticipate one of the member of the media to calmly stand up and throw their shoe at him.

                            Trump not as "crisp" in his opening remarks. Dude looks exhausted (and I would be too.)

                              Now I am the minority, he has good info to help calm the markets and communities. Let the experts put it out, he rambles way too much trying to read statistical stuff. Then put him back in to riff
