Because the “Ratings” of my News Conferences etc. are so high, “Bachelor finale, Monday Night Football type numbers” according to the @nytimes, the Lamestream Media is going CRAZY. “Trump is reaching too many people, we must stop him.” said one lunatic.

I saw Joe Biden on MTP this morning. I'm still not a Biden fan (he was never my first choice). But to listen to a former Senator and VP speak intelligently about the workings of government and how it functions, was a tall glass of iced tea on a Texas August day.
So my fervent hope is that Trump is right about his ratings, and that more and more of the public is seeing what a yammering fool he is, how utterly out of his depth he is, and how incapable he is of understanding the suffering of any one person in this country, much less millions of them. If we're lucky, he'll even repeat this praise of himself tonight.
Because in contrast to that, all Biden has to do is to discuss what needs to be done. He did it this morning without invective or animosity or anger. He simply spoke to the problems at hand and what needs to be done about them. He didn't speak to Trump's incompetence and idiocy. He is wise to let that speak for itself.
And Trump is fool enough to keep speaking. Even Hugh Hewitt on MTP this morning had to praise everybody (he did include Trump), because he knew if he praised Trump alone the entire panel (no matter how distant in space they were from each other) would come down on his head like a ton of bricks, and even NBC would probably have nothing further to do with him (why they have him on at all remains a mystery). For Hewitt, his praise of Trump was actually quite measured; almost muted.
Especially if Trump mentions this tonight (how can he resist?), this point will become obvious to many, many Americans.This is what you are to him, Americans.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) March 29, 2020
Not his constituents. Not the people who hired him. Not even humans.
You're boxes in a spreadsheet of his Neilsen ratings. https://t.co/3cBSlS02Lb
Reality is catching up with Trump on all sides.
