Trump talks of “herd mentality”

The COVID Diaries – 165 16th September

Last night, Donald Trump took questions directly from uncommitted American voters at a televised “town hall” type event, in an experiment his campaign might not be in a hurry to repeat.

Some regarded the event as a train-wreck performance for Trump, while Trump himself claimed the next day on Twitter that he had won “great reviews”.

Perhaps the worst problem for Trump were his multiple visible descents into confusion on stage, such as when he described how “herd mentality” could defeat the coronavirus – when he seemed to mean “herd immunity”.
