White House ramps up PR campaign to improve Trump's image

(CNN)The aggressive new White House campaign to improve America's perceptions of President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus crisis was in full swing Friday -- from the President's sunny predictions in the Rose Garden about developing a vaccine to the press secretary's attempted takedown of the Obama administration's pandemic playbook in the White House briefing room.

For several months it has been evident that Trump could face a steep reelection challenge because of the poor ratings he has received for his foot-dragging response to Covid-19 and the administration's missed opportunity to contain the virus. Though the percentage of new tests that are positive appears to be trending downward, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made a grim new prediction Friday evening, tweeting that models the CDC tracks now forecast America is likely to surpass 100,000 coronavirus deaths by June 1.

Facing those sorts of predictions about continuing grief as well as economic devastation, along with the pessimistic prognosis about his reelection chances from his own campaign team in late April, the President finally seems to grasp that his defensive rants about his press coverage from the podium in the briefing room aren't going to be enough to sway public opinion in his favor.

Trump is still making risky moves -- firing State Department Inspector General Steve Linick under the cover of night Friday. The move was just the latest in a series of ousters of independent government watchdogs as Trump exacts his revenge for the impeachment proceedings following his acquittal.

Sure. It's all an image problem not a competency problem.

3. Did they invoke the Defense Production Act for Revlon and L'Oreal

to force them to make the vast amounts of lipstick that still won't be sufficient for this particular pig?

5. If he were capable of a competent and sympathetic response to the pandemic,

that would be all he needed to improve his image. But everybody can see how well thatís going.

8. Image problem for me is that she appears to be a crook. That said when I think "image" I can't help

but think of my late Mother who absolutely detested women who wore their hair longer than shoulder length after their 30's. I know, I know. I don't really care either way... but boy did it bug my late Mother.

Miss ya Mom...

9. There ain't (I know, language ain't right) enough money in the campaign coffers to even come ...

close to polishing up the badly tarnished image and reputation of trump. What is he still hiding? What crime(s) is he doing under cover that require dismissing so many inspector generals from providing the critical oversight functions required in government operations?

There also isn't enough money to hide the stench of death from the many 10s of thousands of CV deaths that the failures of his administration caused in failing to act once news of the deadly CV epidemic hit the airwaves.

Instead, trump was playing golf and having his 'rip off more money' campaign rallies AND deeply discounting any threat that the virus could have on American shores. Man, we are winning big time.

Disgusting POS.

26. Nothing likable is correct, and further...the image of his being a bully and fool

is set in hard stone..like a huge bolder that cannot be broken into pieces...

Also most people in the U.S. have a very strong feeling of dislike for Trump. No change of image in the next few months will change what Trump himself hammered out over 3 and 1/2 years....

Remember: "The virus will infect 5 or 6 and be gone in a week or two"
...................Nothing can change that statement...and Trump never apologizes for anything..Does he?

19. Slap a mask on and give him some cataract sunglasses.

The only way to improve his image is to cover that shit up.
