    Sorry, but this is probably too soon, based on most predictions how this virus will play out.

    Another example of how this President is more concerned about his re-election than the health of its citizens.

    It’s fine for Trump to project optimism in a crisis. It’s kind of part of his or any president’s job.

    But science rules in this situation. False hope is worthless. Trump must follow the science.

    Funny yes, but what does this post have to do with Trump wanting to open up the economy?

    Well, this is NOT going to help Trump’s re-election if a million people die instead of 100,000 because of his directives. Still seems like the same wishful thinking of a month ago that hoped that if we just held our breath and did nothing, all of the Covid cases would just go away and everything would be great – even though that has not happened in any other country in the world afflicted by this outbreak.

    Could be that Trump believes the afflicted will mostly be in big cities full of voters who won’t vote for him anyway. In some sense, he might be right: why does he care if 500,000 New Yorkers most of whom would never vote for him anyway die? Covid will certainly devastate small towns and rural areas too, but with people not as densely packed together, the number of cases may be relatively smaller. Some of his voters will just assume it’s Jesus calling them home early anyway – and because Jesus wanted Trump to be president, why golly, that must be OK.

    Trump: open the economy by Easter.

    Dana Carvey/Bush: Na gahnna do it, wouldn’t be prudent at this juncture.


    Makes perfect sense to me.

    Some pundits in the party of pro-life (AKA, Children in Cages) are now willing to sacrifice the elderly in favor of corporate money and power.

    Glenn Beck has stated he “would rather die than kill the country.” Fox’s Brit Hume proposed that it was “entirely reasonable” to let the grandparents die to save the stock market. Texas’ Republican Lt. Governor Dan Patrick declared to Tucker Carlson that people like him–grandparents in their twilight years–should risk death so people can stop social distancing and save the economy.
