    His bs last year with the sharpie weather chart was an example of his insane control issues and that he expects everyone around him to lie when he screws up, or they can expect a knock on the door.

    As I said yesterday, Trump is the guy telling everyone that man eating shark is nothing to worry about.
    He's probably going to word salad and blame the media, as usual.

    Any other indications than this that the WH ignored the CDC's advice?

    As a matter of principle you try to take every president at their word about all of their decisions?
    Of is it more of somethings which is particular to this individual instance?

    fwiw,
    If you tried, you could probably come up with some stronger support for your argument.
    "Trump did it, so it's right," is pitiable, hobbled, little argument.
    I may be wrong.

    I may be wrong.
