It was a light morning for President Donald Trump. There were church services at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City (viewed remotely, of course) and a birthday shout-out to First Lady Melania Trump.
It is unclear if there will be a White House pandemic task force briefing today. So far, none is on the agenda, not surprising after the recent volatile sessions and President Trump’s declaration that he’ll be cutting back.
UPDATE: The President’s good mood didn’t last too long. The tweetstorm produced a controversy when a “fake news” tirade culminated into a complaint about reporters covering the Russia investigation receiving “Noble Prizes” and a call upon the “Noble Committee” to act.
After a stream of tweets pointed out that the President misspelled Nobel twice and that there is no Nobel Prize for journalism, the “Noble” tweets were deleted and replaced by a note brushing off criticism and chalking up the “Noble” references to sarcasm.
