Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Coronavirus Briefing Programming Shakeup?

 

President Trump cut the daily briefing down to under 30 minutes on Friday. He then had the White House coronavirus task force take a break from briefing the public over the weekend. This was a good pause without important news to share. Now there has been some internal debate and a report that the scheduled briefing was off until later in the week. That report was then superseded by a report that the briefing is back on, scheduled to start at 5 pm Eastern Time. The live event clock is running on YouTube.

There is reporting, with Kayleigh McEnany on the record, that President Trump is retooling the event. It is probably time for recalibration and show formula freshening, judgments Donald J. Trump well understands. Whatever the case, this bit of off-screen drama should help hold or push viewership higher today.

Van is a spitfire. She is a dedicated conservative and she loves this country. She left Vietnam with her family right after the war. She is an entrepreneur, having started several businesses, and now in her senior years runs a nail business (does fingers and toes, as my husband would say) from her home, and does my nails. I’ve known her for more than ten years, so we know each other pretty well. The other day she stunned me with a story of bravery and determination. And it wasn’t about leaving Vietnam.

Van has mostly senior customers from all walks of lives, an assortment of religions or no-religions, and many cultures, ethnicities, and races. I’m going to share her story as she told it to me the other day, in her inimitable style:

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Defense Secretary James Mattis for telling CBS News that he doesn’t lose sleep over anything but makes other people lose sleep. They also scratch their heads over Jared Kushner allegedly discussing a secret communications channel with Moscow during the Trump transition and wonder why a real estate guy is dealing with national security.
