Caption This: Another Bizarre Trump Press Conference

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
President Trump on Monday, April 13

On Monday, President Trump held a 2 1/2 hour coronavirus briefing that was mostly about self-congratulation and media bashing. As Ashley Parker writes for The Washington Post:

Yet in the middle of this deadly pandemic that shows no obvious signs of abating, the president made clear that the paramount concern for Trump is Trump — his self-image, his media coverage, his supplicants and his opponents, both real and imagined.

“Everything we did was right,” Trump said, during a sometimes hostile 2½ -hour news conference in which he offered a live version of an enemies list, brooking no criticism and repeatedly snapping at reporters who dared to challenge his version of events.

Trump has always had a me-me-me ethos, an uncanny ability to insert himself into the center of just about any situation. But Monday’s coronavirus briefing offered a particularly stark portrait of a president seeming unable to grasp the magnitude of the crisis — and saying little to address the suffering across the country he was elected to lead.

At one point — after praising himself for implementing travel restrictions on China at the end of January and griping about being “brutalized” by the press — Trump paused to boast with a half-smirk, “But I guess I’m doing okay because, to the best of my knowledge, I’m the president of the United States, despite the things that are said.”  [Pols emphasis]

Uh, okay.

Anyway, we took one look at the photo above and realized that this was another perfect opportunity for a “caption this” contest. We did some light editing of that photo to give you a blank canvas. Enjoy!

  1. I do what I want. I am ur king. Ur FAKE. Ur FIRED. Want ventilators? Fight amongst yourselves for our entertainment. 
     

    This is the sense of $rump’s press conference yesterday, as captured by CNN’s chyron writers, who must have been given free rein to tell the truth. There are some doozy screen captures, but how else are journalists to do fact checking in real time?

     

    Actual chyron from yesterday:

    Angry Trump turns briefing into propaganda session

     

     

    1. It is hard to say who, on “the View”, was more disgusting in their determination not to talk about what T***p said yesterday…Megan McCain or Chris Christie. Both immediately pivoted to excoriating the the media, McCain suggesting they shouldn’t provoke our Baby President with Governor Donuts doing the same but finishing by blaming China.

      Equally despicable.

  2. Did you see the real-time chyron descriptions on CNN during the "press briefing" ??

    Some of them are going to be in contention for the mythical "chyron hall of fame" …

  3. @JID

    I just read them at the link kwtree posted…hysterical.

    Time for the fourth estate to bring the shit storm…the bleating of apologists like Governor Donuts will turn shrill, but let ’em have it, says I.
