Donald Trump has been on television every single day since the beginning of his daily coronavirus briefings, and if his briefings weren’t long enough, or even if they were, Trump would also sometimes make videos for his Twitter account. Basically, Barron probably hasn’t seen his father except for photo-ops since late 2016.
Trump is tweeting again, and this time it’s a video of him reading a scripted speech that you can tell he didn’t even rehearse.

Trump praises first responders and people working behind the scenes of the coronavirus relief effort, but Friday, Trump blocked Anthony Fauci from testifying before Congress regarding the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The White House is blocking Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of the administration’s coronavirus task force, from testifying on Capitol Hill next week, according to a spokesman from a key House committee.
“The Appropriations Committee sought Dr. Anthony Fauci as a witness at next week’s Labor-HHS-Education Subcommittee hearing on COVID-19 response. We have been informed by an administration official that the White House has blocked Dr. Fauci from testifying,” House Appropriations Committee spokesman Evan Hollander said in a statement Friday.
White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere confirmed the decision. “While the Trump Administration continues its whole-of-government response to COVID-19, including safely opening up America again and expediting vaccine development, it is counter-productive to have the very individuals involved in those efforts appearing at Congressional hearings,” Deere said in a statement. “We are committed to working with Congress to offer testimony at the appropriate time.”
