WATCH: Maddow Calls for Trump’s Coronavirus Briefings to Be Kept Off TV

During a recent segment of her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow argued Trump’s coronavirus briefings should be kept off TV.

Rachel Maddow:

There is a clear pattern here in this crisis of the president promising stuff that he knows America would love to hear but it’s not true.

And even stuff that he’s saying that he will do that the federal government will do, he’s not doing.

I feel like we should innoculate ourselves against the harmful impact of these ongoing false promises and false statements by the president by recognizing that when he is talking about the coronavirus epidemic, more often than not, he is lying.

Even when he’s talking about what he has done or what he will do, he is consistently lying and giving you happy talk that is stuff that the federal government isn’t actually doing. And it’s making people around the country count on the fact that the federal government is doing that stuff when they’re not.
