President Trump can be really funny when he wants to.
This week, when he greeted the press corp at the White House, he referred to the Democratic National Convention as ‘their’ convention.
As they say, it’s funny because it’s true.
Here’s a transcript, via the White House:
Remarks by President Trump in Press Briefing | August 23, 2020
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. And it’s good to see you all. Hope you had a great weekend at your convention. And we’re going to have a great convention coming up, and I look forward to it.
But before I discuss a very historic breakthrough in our fight against the China virus, I’d like to provide an update on the recent wildfires in California and the storms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Yesterday, I approved a major disaster declaration for California. I spoke to Governor Newsom as they battle two of the worst wildfires in the history of their state. That continues.
Here’s the video:
