(CNN)As most Americans were preparing for their sixth week of staying at home and social distancing, President Donald Trump appeared at the White House Sunday night for one of his now-trademark coronavirus press briefings.

Trump is talking about a deal to fund the Paycheck Protection Program -- I think.

2. "And we'll see how that all comes out but a lot of good things are happening. "

In which the President of the United State expertly breaks down the difference between a Q-tip and a coronavirus testing swab.

(Trump's right about one thing: The United States does have more coronavirus cases and deaths than any other country in the world. )

Trump proceeded to read a lengthy excerpt from the op-ed -- all of it praising him and how great a job he has done.

Always remember that what Trump means when he says an article was "great" or "good" is that it was nice to him.

"Many governors are doing this incredible work and they're working with us very closely on testing and working in their states.

In which Trump foists the blame for ongoing testing availability to governors and states.

"Some people believe in it like they can't exist without testing and other people don't believe in it nearly as much. "

"You must remember that the governors wanted to have total control over the opening of their states but now they want to have us, the federal government do the testing and again testing is -- is local. "

"The authority is total, and that's the way it's got to be. " -- Donald Trump, on presidential authority to reopen states, on April 13.

"You know, you see people picketing a little bit, and they want to get out.

The "lines" Trump is touting here are the projection lines about coronavirus cases -- and deaths.

This is like a flu. " -- Donald Trump, February 26.

"I want to thank Governor Cuomo, a relationship there, for this whole thing. "

Stop talking!" -- Donald Trump, three days ago

"LIBERATE MICHIGAN. " -- Donald Trump, three days ago

The clip Trump played was -- wait for it -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) praising him.

In which the President says the clip of people praising him wasn't laudatory enough.

Wallace & @FoxNews are on a bad path, watch!" -- Trump on Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 12:58 p. m. Sunday

"It's -- actually, The Wall Street Journal -- Christopher was saying I want to make people feel good, too.

I want to make -- when they're doing a good job, I want to make people feel good. "

Yes, Trump is still trying to get his staff to find the other nice thing Andrew Cuomo said about him so he can play it for reporters.

"This is not a good thing that happened.

And Trump swatted at it.

And then Trump played it.

Again this is Trump talking to Jiang.

The clips Trump played in the briefing were specifically praising him -- and his administration.

You should be praising people that have done a good job, not doing what you do. "

Putting aside all the rest of what Trump said, what does "you don't have the brains you were born with" actually mean?
