Even as Joe Biden is sounding presidential as usual during his ABC News town hall, NBC News is shamefully holding an illegitimate town hall with Donald Trump at the same time. Hopefully all of you are watching Biden and boosting his ratings. But we’re keeping an eye on Trump’s debacle, and let’s just say that it’s going poorly for him.
Trump is now claiming that he somehow doesn’t know if he took a coronavirus test on the day of the debate. He also admitted that he wasn’t being tested every day, as his White House has long claimed. Trump then admitted that doctors told him he had an infection in his lungs, but claimed not to know what the infection was, even though he somehow knows it’s not pneumonic.
Trump then claimed that a new study says 85% of the people who wear masks end up catching coronavirus, at which point host Savannah Guthrie laughed at him and pointed out that the study does not say that. Trump then struggled to respond when she pointed out that Chris Christie now says he wishes he’d worn a mask. This is a disaster for Trump. He’ll be lucky if no one is watching. Meanwhile, Joe Biden is live on ABC right now.
