Trump, In His Own Twisted Way, Finally Owns Up to a Mistake 1

In a press briefing that ended quicker than a lot of Mike Tyson fights, it was Donald Trump who ended up on the mat Friday night. 

I was primed to see how Trump would handle the fallout from Thursday night’s disastrous briefing, in which Trump pondered aloud whether injecting disinfectant might help treat patients suffering from COVID-19, when he decided to take his toys and go home. Right after he shuffled off the stage Friday night without taking a single question, the news broke that he was no longer going to be entertaining America on a nightly basis.

This was utterly out of character, but it was somehow a fitting end to one of the most bizarre weeks in the most bizarre periods in American history.
