Watch: Trump Jokes About ‘Being Involved’ With Models During Coronavirus Briefing
During a coronavirus briefing at the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump joked about being “involved in” models while hand-gesturing the figure of a woman. The quip came while the president was fielding questions about the trajectory of the pandemic.
“The models show hundreds of thousands of people are going to die and you know what I want to do? I want to come way under the model,” he said. “The professionals did the models and I was never involved in a model. At least this kind of a model.”
Vice President Pence, standing stoically behind the president, did not laugh.
