MSNBC Host Suggests Biden Form ‘a shadow government’ To Counter Trump’s COVID Response
MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle suggested earlier this week that former Vice President and likely Democratic nominee in the 2020 race Joe Biden form “a shadow government” to counter President Donald Trump’s daily briefing on the White House’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Do they (the Biden campaign) need to do it in a bigger way? What did you just call it ‘the President’s daily clown show’? That’s his press briefing? Should Joe Biden be counter programming that? Should he be creating his own shadow government, shadow cabinet, shadow SWAT team? And gearing up there at a podium every night saying here’s the crisis we’re in, here’s what we need to do to address this,” Rule said in her interview with former Obama White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina.

Wow that's pretty scary how easily these people give up their rights to choose their own government; and instead are encouraging an unelected person start leading the country.
They even call it a "shadow" government; they don't even feel they need to hide what they are advocating for behind a comfortable euphemism.
This is the kinda thing you'd expect in third world countries; not the US.

We have just ONE President, like him or hate him. This is a stupid idea. To have Biden do updates on the virus, no. Just dumb. But, you should know, up until Trump, I believe all Presidential Contenders set up a "shadow government", or whatever you want to call it, so that when and if they get elected, they can seamlessly take over the control from the last President. Trump just doesn't operate a few step ahead. He operates in the moment. So when he took over, it didn't quite work out that way.
