Ever thought you’d hear President Trump admit he failed at managing the COVID-19 pandemic? Us neither, but that didn’t stop the Biden campaign from taking some cues from the Trump campaign in crafting its latest attack ad.Coming in response to the Trump campaign’s ad released last week, which featured comments from Dr. Anthony Fauci that he says were taken out of context and used in without his permission, the Biden campaign edited together clearly different, out-of-context snippets of Trump’s public speeches to make it sound like Trump is saying, “I am failing at managing the coronavirus outbreak, so I used Dr. Fauci in an ad to say I’m doing a good job. But it’s fake. He never said that.”“He meant it for the task force, not me. Sorry to Dr. Fauci, and sorry to everyone else,” the pieced together clips of Trump also say.Also Read: Fauci Says Trump Campaign Should Take Down 'Completely Out of Context' AdLast week, the Trump campaign released a new ad that included a clip of Fauci that appeared as if the nation’s top infectious diseases expert was praising the president for his handling of the pandemic.“President Trump is recovering from the coronavirus, and so is America,” a narrator for the ad says. “Together we rose to meet the challenge, protecting our seniors, getting them life-saving drugs in record time, sparing no expense.”Fauci then appears in the ad to say, “I can’t imagine that anybody could be doing more.”But in a statement on Sunday, Fauci said the comments were attributed without his permission and taken out of context. And, indeed, the clip itself is taken from a March interview Fauci did on Fox News, in which he was speaking more broadly about the efforts that federal public health officials and the White House’s coronavirus task force have been undertaking to respond to the pandemic.Also Read: Fauci Says Quote in New Trump Ad Was Taken Out of Context, Without His PermissionOn Monday, Fauci also said on CNN that the Trump campaign should take down the ad, which he called “disappointing” and “completely out of context.”But the Trump campaign has defended the ad by saying they used Fauci’s “own words.” “The video is from a nationally broadcast television interview in which Dr. Fauci was praising the work of the Trump Administration. The words spoken are accurate, and directly from Dr. Fauci’s mouth,” Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s communications director, said in a statement.Take a look at the Biden campaign ad below:Donald Trump is running TV ads taking Dr. Fauci out of context and without his permission.So, here’s a message from the President in his own words. pic.twitter.com/WCYbIfrQLR— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 12, 2020Read original story Trump Admits He Failed in Biden Campaign’s Deliciously Petty Ad At TheWrap
The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday questioned President Donald Trump’s behavior since his release from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday.The morning show played a clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying Trump is in “an altered state right now,” so she doesn’t know how to respond to his behavior. From there, the show played clips of Trump calling his COVID-19 diagnosis “a blessing from God,” calling for his political rivals to be arrested and calling Sen. Kamala Harris “this monster.”“I guess this is a very sad indictment or just a sad statement on his life: He doesn’t have anybody close enough to him, that loves him enough, that he trusts enough, that can keep him from continuing to destroy himself and politically, destroying his campaign and politically, destroying Republicans across the country,” host Joe Scarborough said.Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed that if they were on the same type of medication Trump is on following his COVID-19 diagnosis, people in their lives would take time off to take care of them.“There is nothing normal about this. He’s not — does not sound like he is equipped right now to be President of the United States and may not be until his steroid treatment runs its course,” said Scarborough, a former GOP congressman.Watch the hosts discuss whether Trump should “take a rest for a week and let Mike Pence assume the presidency until he gets better” above.Read original story ‘Morning Joe’ Says Trump Doesn’t Have Anyone Who ‘Loves Him Enough’ to Help Him Post-COVID At TheWrap

CNN’s public relations department responded to a tweet from President Donald Trump Tuesday and suggested he had “more important issues” to contend with than taking jabs at the success of the network’s primetime hosts.“Yesterday was a bad day for the Cuomo Brothers. New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all others forms of Lowlife & Scum. The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces. Likewise, Fredo’s ratings are down 50%!” the president declared on Twitter, referring to CNN primetime anchor Chris Cuomo as “Fredo.”“Surely you have more important issues than TV ratings to address. But since you’ve made it a priority, we’ll correct the record,” came the reply from CNN’s PR shop. “@ChrisCuomo has had his highest ratings in history for the past two months.”Also Read: Fox News Wins Total Viewers for Weekend Protest Coverage, CNN Tops Key DemoMonthly Nielsen research ratings were released Tuesday, though the president’s statistic more closely matched one from a Daily Mail piece released over the weekend. Rather than monthly ratings, the Mail compared Cuomo’s peak with the previous week, reporting “Cuomo Prime Time” ratings plummeted 49% since he announced his coronavirus diagnosis in March.According to Tuesday’s new monthly ratings report from CNN, the network had its most-watched May ever in total-day and primetime viewership. “Cuomo Prime Time” was CNN’s top-rated program for the month among total viewers, bringing in an average of 1,948,000. In the advertiser-coveted age demographic of viewers 25-to-54, it saw an average of 513,000.Meanwhile, Trump-favored network Fox News hit some milestones, too, logging its 47th consecutive month in the top spot across all of cable in total-day viewership and 221st consecutive month as the top-rated cable news network in total viewers across both total-day and primetime.Read original story CNN Disputes Trump’s Chris Cuomo Jab: ‘Surely You Have More Important Issues Than TV Ratings’ At TheWrap
