After Trump exited his interview with Lesley Stahl, she was handed a thick black book that contained his health care plan.
What was in it?
This morning, Quora Digest provided the answer:
After contemplating this ‘book’ since seeing it for the first time and Ms. Stahl’s mention that it only has a mish-mash of ‘stuff done’ but no actual plan, I have a new impression.
The President engages in ‘Projection’. Knowing what he knows of his family, ‘friends’, allies, and such, he tends to project what he knows is true for himself. Many have noticed this point and it’s exceptionally funny when the President accuses another family as a ‘Criminal Enterprise’. Really, is that what you think of your family?!
With regard to this book, remember that the President does NOT like to read, avoids written briefs and prefers drawings and many mentions of himself to keep him engaged.
Ergo, we can draw from this observation and analysis to that when the President has this monstrous sized book handed over, it is deliberately heavy, impressive, and with no ‘pictures’.
It seems very, very clear to me that the President expected that NO ONE would bother reading it or even really opening it. As another answer suggests, he assumed they would be ‘impressed' as would the people watching the video. In other words, imagine how the President would react if someone handed HIM a tome of that size. He probably wouldn’t pick it up. He certainly wouldn’t open it because he would immediately lose interest in all those Bigly and Numerous words.
As of this morning, the coronavirus death total is 247, 202, and increase of 995 deaths from the day before. In addition, there were 166,045 new cases YESTERDAY. No other country in the world is even remotely close to those numbers.
It is what it is.
