    "we're better than the French", talk about a tired old line, but Belgium? Way to be a total jerk and slam other countries during a time of necessary unity.

    This is why ultra-nationalists are always a problem, they really don't see other country's citizens as human as they are. It's right back to Us and Them, not a great policy when dealing with a global killer virus that doesn't care.

    It's very concerning how many people seem to be yearning for a despot to be in charge.

    I was listening to an expert on 20th Century European fascists the other week, and she had some interesting points on how their supporters are staunchly anti-authoritarian until they get the chance to install their authoritarian in power.

    That sounds really interesting, if you remember who it was I'd like to listen to that.

    It's almost as if people who feel forgotten about, are ripe to be taken advantage of.

    Thank god trump is as simple in his motivations as he is, with someone more prepared and devious, this could be worse.

    The first five minutes of this, has a tremendous calming effect on me.

    Enjoy, the adults are back in the room.

    Agree. I've always thought the job of the Press Secretary was to calmly and collectively answer a barrage of questions, not to argue with and belittle reporters. Past secretaries up through Obama were all playfully defensive but generally nice people. Trump's litany of "enemy of the people" secretaries was a stark contrast. I've never seen that kind of vitriol spewed in the press room, especially towards the end when they started having Fox News personalities in the spot. Those people had no class.

    McEnany made Sean Spicer look like a zen master. Remember that poor guy? I'll bet he's glad he was early on and probably won't be remembered given all that happened since.

    Adults are back in the room:

    "If you're ever working with me, and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot. On the spot. No ifs, ands, or buts. Everybody, everybody, is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity." -- Pres. Biden, in a videoconference with his new appointees
