Tweet and Delete: Trump promotes a video showing a supporter with a raised fist shouting “White power!” Then deletes it after criticism. By @agearan 

“We’ve reached the point of this polarized pandemic where our current plan for salvation is convincing certain recalcitrant men that wearing masks is the testosteroney thing to do.” @MonicaHesse , of course.

Trump is facing erosion among his core supporters, and his re-election effort is facing an existential crisis. But Trump pollster Tony Fabrizio tells me that Trump's internals with Republicans are strong — 94 percent, most recently.

Trying to find a new nanny share family, I have earnestly uttered the following sentences: "She loves pushing around a toy stroller w a soccer ball inside" and "Look, my daughter is super sweet, but I don't want to misrepresent her as some sort of expert sharer."

Nearly as soon as Trump’s “white power” tweet posted, aides knew they had a problem. They immediately called him to express their concern — and ultimately convinced him to delete it by invoking Sen. Tim Scott. My latest, w @ToluseO .

I feel seen. That said, I no longer get dressed, and thus have no need for new clothes.

Yet in the middle of this deadly pandemic that shows no obvious signs of abating, the president made clear that the paramount concern for Trump is Trump — his self-image, his media coverage, his supplicants and his opponents, both real and imagined.

NEW: A volunteer on Kushner's coronavirus response effort was so worried by what they saw that they filed a complaint w House Oversight. W/ @yabutaleb7 

Trump just marched CDC director Redfield out to claim he was misquoted by the WaPo. But in fact, Redfield just confirmed the entire story — below — said he was quoted 100 percent accurately.

Is...the crowd literally applauding because the president just... drank water...with... just one hand?

Scott. Pruitt. Used. His. Government. Position. To. Try. To. Score. His. Wife. A. Chick-Fil-A. Franchise. That is all.

This is false. Don Jr. only revealed his emails once he learned the NYT already had them, in an attempt to pre-empt the story.

"Do the women get to talk around here?" Nancy Pelosi asked at one point, during Wednesday's White House dinner.
