Yes! Actual factual scientific information is going to be disseminated from this White House.

Will they be covered live here, the way previous briefings were?

These will be science-led briefings.

And yet if a woman is involved, I’m sure her choice of clothing will be relevant.

Fox News: Finda the Doocey inna da pizza.


She’s quite brilliant in that she doesn’t hesitate to call on the lesser of the two Dooceys. She compliments him; treats him like a guest; and then rhetorically pulls his coat down over his arms and sticks in the shiv. She appears to enjoy the sport if it.

I doubt it. With Trump, there was always the chance, if a remote one, that he would lose what little cool he had and say things that were “highly entertaining” or collapse with an aneurysm.

I see no such drama at these events unless one enjoys the badinage between Fox News celebrities (they are not newspersons) and Jen and her experts.

White House coronavirus task force briefings in the Trump administration came to an abrupt halt after the former president touted unfounded confounded COVID-19 treatments, which included suggesting “injecting” a disinfectant to combat the coronavirus, during a briefing in late April.

FIFY!

Really the only downside of trump being out of office is that if/when this glorious moment arrives, it will not be televised.

Maybe Jen should bring this to share at the next news briefing, just for Peter.
