As we told you this evening, President Trump tweeted video from Walter Reed Medical Center describing his current condition, and he looked and sounded fine. In his four-minute video, Trump said “we’re going to beat this coronavirus.”
Meanwhile, supporters of Trump were gathered outside the hospital waving flags and holding signs in backing the president and wishing him well. Here’s one such scene that an NBC News political reporter described as a “total circus”:

Is “total circus” better or worse than “fiery but mostly peaceful”?
Trump supporters = “total circus”
Rioters burning and looting = “mostly peaceful social justice seekers” https://t.co/cR1nW3Ls2f

Josh has never referred to a BLM protest or riot as a "circus," but chose that wording here to describe Trump supporters…
I'm sure that has nothing to do with his bias or hatred of the President.

Circus = flags + smiles?

Maybe “journalists” forgot what that kind of thing looks like.
Oh the humanity.

Video doesn't support this description at all, but you certainly sound like a circus clown. https://t.co/Ne6UFTFbVR

Not enough burning and looting for Josh, I guess. https://t.co/5ykEeGtXRC

This is a “total circus” but groups burning, looting & assaulting in our cities is a “peaceful protest”.
