It is not quite clear who in the Donald Trump administration has been trying to decide whether he should keep giving press briefings. The president has been very scarce since he suggested injecting disinfectants might fix coronavirus, which is a very bad and dangerous idea. To make matters worse, POTUS then posited inserting UV lights into the human body might cure the deadly disease, too.

After that debacle, the administration had the idea of holding the briefings in a different room. Yeah, that would change everything. Perhaps they would have them without the president, which is what his top advisers had been urging since Trump started.

He tweeted Saturday that they were “not worth the time & effort.” Yet, he has enjoyed jousting with the journalists in the room and these two-hour meetings. He started them, since he could no longer hold rallies.

Two of the White House’s top administration officials noted that the president has been talking about firing his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar. He makes a convenient scapegoat. The secretary was in charge of the coronavirus task force when it was first formed. Then, Trump kicked him aside in late February and put Vice President Mike Pence in charge.

On Sunday, POTUS said that he was not going to fire Azar. He denied that in a tweet, saying:

‘Alex is doing an excellent job!’

The president said that he had no plans to fire Azar, but as Brad Pitt said when he played Dr. Anthony Fauci on Saturday Night Live’s (SNL) cold open:

‘Yeah, I’m getting fired.’

The White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said as The Associated Press (AP)reported:

‘We know that’s important. We understand those messages of science and policy need to be brought forward to the American people in a nonpolitical way.’

White House Press Secretary Kaleigh McEnany appeared on Fox News with host Ed Henry. He said:

‘He [Trump] seems to be pulling back. Are you finally acknowledging that maybe the briefings were a mistake?’

She replied:

‘No, the briefings were a great opportunity for the president to speak directly to the American people.’

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos and said:

‘I want to get our economy back opened just as soon as we can, but I want to do so in a safe way so we don’t have a spike, we don’t cause more deaths, or an overloading of our health care system.’

Birx appeared on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper Thursday evening:

‘As a scientist and a public health official and a researcher, sometimes, I worry that we don’t get the information to the American people that they need, when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night.’

The governors both Democratic and some Republican have noted that they had to do accurate testing and tracing coronavirus patients to reopen their states within months — not days.
