"People should vote like they did in World War 1 & World War 2," Trump says to open his August 10 news conference, ignoring that there was no deadly pandemic during those times.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 10, 2020
Then he adds, without evidence: "In 90 days or less, your [Covid] numbers will be very good." pic.twitter.com/bhSOR1DvTr
He says in part that in the state of Virginia they incorrectly mailed out ballot applications to dead people and pets, and “it just came out today.”
On Thursday the Washington Post reported that “The Washington-based Center for Voter Information, a nonprofit geared toward increasing voter participation among underrepresented groups, mailed 2.25 million applications for absentee ballots to voters across the state, with a quarter of them containing a return envelope addressed to the wrong election office, the group said Thursday.”
Shortly after the presser started, which was late, starting at 5:46 p.m., President Waddles was waddled away from the podium leaving reporters to wonder why…

Roughly ten minutes later President Waddles, waddled back into the press briefing room and explained that the Secret Service shot someone outside the White House.

President Rattled Probably, explained that he is fine the world is a dangerous place.
Deep thoughts with Trump: "The world has always been a dangerous place. Not something that is unique. You look back over the centuries, the world has been a dangerous place, very dangerous place, and it will continue, I guess, for a period of time." pic.twitter.com/pQfjDSW6Xw— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 10, 2020
President Final Pivots away from the shooting offering no details of the event that occurred outside the White House and that forced him to be whisked away by a Secret Service agent by bragging about the stock market.

President Day Ending in Y, pretty much continues along the same daily press path, we have so many cases because we test more…
Other countries are having surges too!.
It’s going to go away the coronavirus because he says we are seeing encouraging signs…
REPORTER: 97,000 children tested positive for coronavirus in the last week of July. Does that give you any pause about schools reopening for in-person learning?— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 10, 2020
REPORTER: So do you still think kids are essentially immune?
TRUMP: Yeah [this is false — kids can die] pic.twitter.com/5UCuRkOuRK
He says in the clip because there is a tiny fraction in death among kids, and they have a harder time catching the virus and passing the virus along schools should be open.
The New York Times explains that North Paulding High School in Georgia announced on Sunday it was switching to online instruction on Monday, and Tuesday after reporting at least nine positive cases.
Asked if he would have called for Obama to resign with 160,000 dead American’s he said “No, I wouldn’t have done that.”
REPORTER: If 160,000 people had died on Obama's watch, would you have called for his resignation?— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 10, 2020

I do believe Aaron is wrong, and 2 American’s did die from Ebola.

There is always a tweet.
As he typically does to round out the campaign rally he ended his presser by leaning on OANN and you guessed it, Obamagate aka SpyGate.
