Description

On Saturday morning, the doctors treating President Trump for the coronavirus held a news conference outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center — a show of strength, aimed at reassuring the American public that he was in capable hands.

But instead of allaying concern, it raised questions, casting doubt on the timeline of the president’s illness and the seriousness of his condition.

We speak to Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, White House correspondents for The Times, about the efforts to control the narrative, and pick through what is known about the president’s condition a month before the election.

Guest:Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, White House correspondents for The New York Times.

it seems like everything the president does or says, is picked apart by the Democrats and the media! you think there would be some details that they don't want in the media! what happened to privacy?

Micheal's ums, hums and hmmms are getting out of hand, as is the expository commentary. It's becoming a show that insults the intelligence more than it nourishes it.
