YES!: The media must stop live-broadcasting Trump’s dangerous, destructive coronavirus briefings https://t.co/TSekILGTkV— Jane Mayer (@JaneMayerNYer) March 22, 2020
The hottest topic on the internet.
From @ErikWemple: Want to know why Trump shouldn’t be allowed on live TV? Listen to Anthony Fauci. https://t.co/khgkkAOiTP— Washington Post Opinions (@PostOpinions) March 23, 2020
Everybody's saying it.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is losing patience with President Trump — and the feeling may be mutual.— New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) March 23, 2020
“I can’t jump in front of the microphone and push him down,” Dr. Fauci says.https://t.co/74Wc8EM4pC
I confess I'm more concerned with who's in charge in the White House, and what they are actually doing:

Moral monsters:To them, letting medical experts set policy to combat a pandemic is a serious error. “Worse” than the deaths of thousands of Americans, in the minds of the narcissistic president, is the chance that his reelection could be impaired— Jennifer Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) March 23, 2020
This is what's happening now:

This is what the White House is saying now:
KUDLOW teases that Trump will try to send people back to work next week: "We can't shut in the economy... POTUS is right: The cure can't be worse than the disease, & we're gonna have to make some difficult trade-offs... I spoke w/ POTUS about this very subject late last evening." pic.twitter.com/OV02aLFGxh— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 23, 2020
What kind of "tradeoffs," exactly, are we speaking of?
In Texas, counties and cities are issuing "shelter-in-place" orders. If the White House (regardless of whether or not Trump is live on TeeVee) issues orders telling people it's all good, return to work, how many hourly workers are not going to anxiously leave their homes to go back to work or to find work? This shit show is likely to get much worse, and it won't be because CNN and MSNBC kept covering live press conferences.Millennials are not immune: Younger adults are large percentage of coronavirus hospitalizations in United States, according to new CDC data. https://t.co/WNA2Z50R49— Michelle Ye Hee Lee (@myhlee) March 23, 2020
