The last thing that any administration should want is a government official addressing the coronavirus outbreak while looking sick.

It’s laughable now, but it was only a few years ago that the corporate media was pushing the myth that Trump is a master of political messaging and optics.

The message sent in the coronavirus briefing is that half of the people on the platform looked ill, and somebody should get Larry Kudlow tested for coronavirus before he falls over.
