May 4, 2020
Journalist John Micek told talkRADIO that the US President should not be suggesting anything medical during his coronavirus press conferences. Instead, Mr Micek argued that President Trump should focus on making himself a consoling presence for the American people during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Micek said: “It is not for the President to be suggesting anything medical.
“He is not a doctor, he is not a scientist.
“The American people need him to be a consoling presence.
“So often we hear very little of that from the President.
He continued: “We see him attack terrorists, we see him tout his own record but we see very little of what you hope for in a President, that is a consoler in chief.
“Somebody who is going to speak to the American people as the death toll continues to mount.
“What you need form the President is to just talk about where the country is economically.
“What they are going to do to bring the country out of the ditch and how he is going to lead the country forward.
“Leave the science to the scientists, you just don’t need that out of the President of the United States.”
