Perhaps sensing that his odds of surviving this are shrinking by the hour, Donald Trump is now in the midst of his most unhinged press conference to date. He’s rambling so incoherently and belligerently, no one has any idea what he’s talking about. And he’s now threatening to storm out of his own press briefing, because he doesn’t like how it’s going.
White House correspondent Brian Karem asked Donald Trump a question about the insufficient coronavirus testing in the United States. Trump tried to generically blame the governors. But Karem wouldn’t let Trump get away with the non-answer, and kept seeking to follow up. Trump began hurling insults at Karem, before ultimately threatening to walk out.
That’s right, Trump said this: “Keep talking and I’ll leave, and you can have it out with the rest of these people.” Trump literally threatened to bail on his own press conference because a reporter tried to ask him a followup question. Trump is that far gone.
