Yesterday was the 20th coronavirus task force briefing at the White House and they have only succeeded in making things worse. The task force hasn’t done anything but lie, delay, blame, and insult the media. We’re better off with no task force at all because, with the exception of 2 actual medical experts, the whole team is Trump’s cheerleader squad for his 2020 campaign. They co-sign everybit of bullshit that Trump lets fly from his mouth. He said from the podium that he wants to “win with as few lives lost as possible.” What the hell kind of bullshit thing is that to say during a pandemic while people are dying and losing their jobs? The squad nodded obediently. He went on, “I think it is unprecedented what we have done and what we are doing.” When asked why he didn’t act sooner, given that he’s known about the virus for 3 months he said, “I acted quickly and closed down travel to China early,” and then he bragged about what the history books will say about him and how great he is. “We’re going to be celebrating a great victory in the not-too-distant future.”
The Trump 2020 squad cheered, V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! VICTORY VICTORY VICTORY! And then they made straight faces to look like they cared about the coronavirus.
Trump is a doctor now. He tweeted out dangerous bogus medical advice: HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains — Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents) be put in use IMMEDIATELY. PEOPLE ARE DYING, MOVE FAST, and GOD BLESS EVERYONE!
2 weeks ago Trump was playing golf.
“He. Didn’t. Care. He didn’t care about governing, about doing his actual job to protect the nation. He was too busy lying, cheating, stealing, spreading hate, sucking up to murderous dictators, enriching himself, stuffing the black empty space where a soul usually goes.” — Steven Beschloss
Fox News spent 7 weeks defending Trump’s claim that the coronavirus was a Democratic hoax meant to take him down (go Trump!) Now Lou Dobbs is in self quarantine.
The NRA is using the coronavirus to scare the gun nuts into buying more guns so they can shoot it.
Creepy Florida Republican Governor and Trump Wanna Be (Go Trump!), Ron DeSantis, wants to put people who test positive in abandoned convention centers and hotels to prevent them from infecting people at home. Too late. Everybody who partied like there’s no tomorrow on the beaches of Florida during spring break is returning home to infect housemates all across the country. There may be no tomorrow for them after all.
“Wouldn’t it be so Florida if Florida killed us all?” — Molly Jong-Fast
The owner of Hobby Lobby is making his store managers keep their stores open because his wife had a vision from God.
Doctors and nurses who work in ICU in New York City hospitals say they’ve never seen anything this bad. The superintendent of New Rochelle school district northeast of the city has tested positive.
Italy has 6,557 new cases and 793 new deaths. The total number of confirmed cases has reached 53,578. The total death count is 4,825. That’s a fatality rate of 9%.
Meanwhile in southern California, people are ignoring the governor’s mandate to stay home and have flocked to the beaches to catch some rays because, because, because? WTF?! Now the governor is pissed. He’s telling them to knock it off, “Grow up and GO HOME.”
Australia has closed its pubs, clubs, cinemas, casinos, nightclubs and places of worship.
Iran has 129 new deaths, raising the death toll to 1,685. Now 21,638 have tested positive.
At least 2.5 million people have lost their jobs and thus their health insurance. No income, no insurance, no big deal. As Wilbur Ross would say, just take out a loan.
Trump doesn’t want the states to release their unemployment numbers because it will make him look bad. When asked what he’d say to people who are worried because they have lost their jobs, he said “Well, what they do right now is keep receiving their paycheck. And hopefully their companies are gonna be in a very strong position…we think we’re gonna have a tremendous bounceback.”
No income, no insurance, no problem!
Republicans still won’t call Trump out for lying about all of this or unite around demading his resignation. They’re the fans in the bleachers doing the wave as the Trump 2020 cheer squad smiles and waves.
Trump says, “the check is in the mail” only the IRS is just as dysfunctional as any other government agency that Trump has blown up so don’t count on any checks any time soon, if ever.
And as long as the cheer squad and fans in the bleachers keep singing the “Fight” song, there will be no checks and balances on Trump either.
“It’s all fun and games until the incompetent morons you voted for because they promised to dismantle the government have to actually run the government they dismantled” — Jeff Tiedrich
