On Tuesday President Impeached will hold another daily evening presser aka mini-rally aka a full blown campaign rally, that will start anywhere from 5 p.m. D.C. time, to 6 p.m. D.C. time.
White House news conference at 5:30 P.M. Eastern. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 7, 2020
For today aside from the normal mentions of; ventilators, testing, and PPE’s, the Impeached President might be asked about the following news items, in random order.
On Tuesday it was announced that our not so Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is returning to her post in the East Wing, to where she can continue to avoid the press. She will be replaced by Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany.
BREAKING: Stephanie Grisham is leaving her post as Trump’s press secretary. She did not host a single press briefing during her less than year-long tenure. https://t.co/1vkic7NbN9— POLITICO (@politico) April 7, 2020
Politico reports the move comes just weeks after former Republican Congressman Mark Meadows took over as Chief of Staff for President Impeached.
The shake-up in communications, also finds Alyssa Farah, a top Defense Department spokeswoman, joining the White House communication staff as the White House’s director of strategic communications. Farah served as Press Secretary for Vice President Mike Pence, before joining Defense.
As noted this move comes as the Trump administration deals with the coronavirus pandemic, some of the shake-up is result of complaints from White House officials who have grown frustrated with the job the communications team has been doing, with Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and Impeached President’s adviser, complaining, that Grisham was not aggressive enough.
Hard to be aggressive when one hides from the press.
As mentioned before Monday’s mini-rally, President Impeached was asked about Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly’s address to the crew of the USS Theodore Roosevelt in which he called removed Captain Brett Crozier, either too naive or too stupid to understand his email to 20 people would be leaked to the press. Because everything Trump Touches Dies, save, irony, Modly’s comments were leaked to the press, promoting calls for him to resign.
On Tuesday, Modly has resigned according to CNN Undersecretary of the Army James McPherson has been tapped to replace Modly, but will continue his other duties.
CBS News is reporting that 173 sailors on the USS Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for the coronavirus according to the U.S. Navy. They added that 61 percent of the crew has been tested, with 1,999 sailors being removed from the ship.
As covered in the Trump Tweets thread, President Impeached and ABC News reporter John Karl had a dust-up regarding an Inspector General Report released on Monday that warned of an overwhelmed healthcare system in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
We should likely see more huffing, and puffing from the Real Victim™️ when he is asked to explain how come he replaced Glenn Fine, the acting Pentagon Inspector General, who was tapped to oversee the implementation of the $2 trillion stimulus package.
Politico was first to report the news saying that instead of Fine overseeing the package, that the current EPA IG will head the panel.
And continuing the theme, on Tuesday, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, sent Acting DNI Richard Grenell a letter demanding answers on how come Friday, President Impeached fired the IC IG, Michael Atkinson.
His letter was sent to the press before it was sent to me. These press leaks politicizing the intelligence community must stop. https://t.co/hdWIzGWvZr— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 7, 2020
Brings me comfort to know that our Acting Director of National Intelligence, doesn’t understand that Committee letters are typically made public as they are sent as they do not normally contain classified information.
Program alert as if we don’t get enough of President Impeached in the Campaign rally.
