Wednesday's episode of "The Daily Show" aired hours after new audio of Trump telling investigative journalist Bob Woodward he "wanted to always play [COVID-19] down" was released ahead of "Rage", Woodward's forthcoming book about the president. The book also covers race relations, diplomacy with North Korea and a range of other issues that have arisen during the past two years.
Rage is the second book about the Trump administration written by Woodward, after Fear was released in 2018, although that did not include any interviews with the President.
When it comes to the coronavirus, it's no surprise that President Trump has refused to listen to the experts and the scientists - just look at his environmental record.
"He tells me this, and I'm thinking, 'Wow, that's interesting, but is it true?' Trump says things that don't check out, right?"
Brad Paisley, guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, welcomed viewers to "take a break from the mean tweets, the awkward beats, and lame jokes about Donald Trump", in song. He has also said that the virus would "disappear". But it turns out that he was actually smart about it in private, but he's also stupid enough to tell Bob Woodward on tape. Hmm. However, Trump minimized the threat during public appearances.
During the February 7 interview, Trump acknowledged that the virus was airborne and that COVID-19 was deadlier than even the most strenuous strains of the flu. Trump, who is seeking a reelection in the November polls, claimed that people of America "don't like her". "He makes clear that he doesn't want to see chaos", she said. Just today and yesterday, some startling facts came out. "We're always on the cutting edge and we've always got something out there that our adversaries don't know about", O'Brien said.
During an appearance with John King on CNN Thursday, Gangel argued that Woodward is "actually very transparent in the book and lays out the timeline" for how he pieced together the context of Trump's botched handling of the health crisis. Ever since he started the coronavirus briefing from that White House podium back in February, he has been in a self-destruction mode. However, Fauci is not the the only one to publicly speak against the idea.
"Trump never did seem willing to fully mobilize the federal government and continually seemed to push problems off on the states", Woodward writes.
This, of course, was not the only time Trump made this faulty comparison. NPR has confirmed the passages in the book.
