Right. I’m not convinced stupidity is an adequate explanation for what we are experiencing.  

It's all I have on this one...

He’s a master at controlling media narratives. It’s too simplistic to assume this past four years has been nothing more than a string of mistakes from a village idiot. There’s a method to the madness...

I think it's more his willingness to be blunt, to the point of often being rude, than being any kind of mastermind. He's not always wrong, and when he isn't, or isn't completely wrong, he comes off as possibly "insightful" against a background of much of the media automatically assuming he is.

He's hiding in plain sight, even if it was a mistake; we're so desensitised to the bullshit...

He might just be promoting one of his investments:

That's a rather cynical way, to look at this...

Meanwhile, I continue wondering: What’s he trying to distract us from? What was he doing that required a comment so crazy to hide from view? We’ve spent 2 days talking about Lysol and a lot can happen behind the scenes during 2 days.  I continue wondering what it was. 

I keep hoping he is just stupid...

He certainly holds up Democrat agenda. Arguably more than Trump.

I dunno, the massive mismanagement of the pandemic response would be a massive thing to distract from. Not sure whether we need anything else.

The biggest thing Republicans had to brag about in November was the strength of the economy.
Not like they could brag about the President's track record, surviving impeachment, or anything.

With that option gone, the economy limping along ( devastated in NY, NJ, Ill. and Mass. ) and unemployment at close to 25 % ( especially in Republican states ), I doubt they'll even manage to hold on to the Senate.
Somebody's gotta be worried about this; I'm surprised they haven't taken the phone ( and microphone at Press conferences ) away from D Trump and told him to shut up.

All J Biden has to do is show up in November; If he survives his age and the pandemic.
What else is there to draw attention away from ?

Many have, in fact. GOP strategists, senators, representatives, governors, and media outlets have been collectively telling Trump that his press briefings are doing more harm than good and you’ll notice they’ve gone from 2 hours per day down to 15-20 minutes, often with Trump just abruptly walking out of the briefing room.

Proud to report I haven't seen a single one of his press briefings.

I've just seen highlights. Proud to report my brain damage has been only minimal.

And now he doesn't even show up, it's how a petulant 12yo reacts when he calls his teacher "mum".

Apparently his last 22 min. press briefing, was caused by a CNN reporter, who D Trump wanted moved back, from the front row to the sixth. Both her, and the other reporter in the sixth row refused to move, as is their right, and that got the President 'upset'.
He cut the briefing short and refused to take any questions.

And his supporters will call it "authoritative" and "strong".

He "called it" first and they refused to comply. Hard to blame him for taking his ball and going home...

Did you guys skip grade three?

Maybe, by way of balance, the media should not turn up to his election gigs.
