Thursday Evening Open Thread: Another Twist in the ‘RNC Convention of the Doomed’ Narrative

BWHAHAHAHA!

Like this was somehow a point in Dear Leader’s favor…

The Washington Post is not impressed:

Trump, who delivered the news at the beginning of a coronavirus news briefing, said he was presented with plans for the nominating event in the afternoon, but told his staff it wasn’t the right time to hold the event.

“But I looked at my team and I said the timing for this event is not right, just not right with what’s happened recently. The flare-up in Florida to have a big convention is not the right time,” Trump said. “It’s really something that for me, I have to protect the American people. That’s what I’ve always done. That’s what I always will do. That’s what I’m about.”…

The president said he would still give an acceptance speech in some form, but it would not be before the cheering crowds that attend in normal times.

Trump said thousands of people “desperately” wanted to attend and were already making travel arrangements.

“The pageantry, the signs, the excitement were really, really top of the line,” he said.

The cancellations, the staff complaints, the disdain from my donors were really, really attention-grabbing.
