President Trump and NASA Administrator Bridenstine on Coronavirus Technology Video

Trump: "NASA was dead as a doornail and then we reinvigorated it."

CSPAN Transcript: "YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT NASA AND WE'VE REALLY DONE A JOB WITH NASA. IT'S BEEN REINVIGORATED. IT WAS DEAD AS A DOORNAIL AND NOW IT'S VERY MUCH ALIVE."

Keith's note: Yesterday NASA PAO denied access to some media covering the COVID-19 invention press event and sent screwy, broken links to others such that the only way to know what was going on was to listen to a black screen Youtube video with narration as objects where shown to a camera. For today's White House visit there was no advance notice that this was going to happen. We all learned about this event officially from NASA after the fact when the NASA PAO chief retweeted someone else's tweet - after news media had retweeted it. It is as if PAO just makes this all up as they go.

NASA can't even be bothered to post this on their home page (screen grab at 5:33 pm EDT) or on @NASA - but I can post news about it sitting in my basement. Update 25 April 4:30 pm EDT - still no mention at NASA.gov
