The failures of the health care system (and the inequities that are becoming more visible these days) will be a major theme of the presidential campaign. The attempts by the Republicans to dismantle Obamacare, and Trump's empty promises of "great health care" will come back with a vengeance.

As for being out of touch, here's an actual Trump tweet from yesterday:

I repeat: yesterday.

Let that sink in.

Trump will just say that all of that wasn't his fault and blame someone else, like he always does. He can say something and contradict himself in the same breath.

But fuck me, though! The USA is really being hit hard by the virus! :shock:

While it is possible the Chinese reporting is so fudged as to be unreliable, it seems certain the US will lead the world in cases and deaths in absolute terms and possibly in deaths percapita while lagging way behind in testing percapita. No possible explanation of this failure of leadership besides Trump being a truly terrible manager, genuinely stupid in matters of science and an all around vile human.

Make America Greatly(dead) Again!
We're number 1 in cases!
We're number 1 in deaths!

USA, USA, USA!

He really thinks his TV ratings are the most important thing.

Nah. Give us here in Brazil a couple more weeks. I think we’ll give the U.S. a run for its money.

The Red state vs the Blue state responses to the virus and the casualties that are accumulating now and into the near future leads me to ask,are these deaths in the USA due to the Covid 19 virus part of the "Culture War" gone hot ...Stupidity and Faith vs Science and Thinking?
Is this the Civil War without the violence.....an exceptional civil war?

I have been morbidly interested in watching the virus spread into New Jersey. I have to remind non-Americans that it is essentially a suburb of New York.

Trump wants to kill the US Mail to stop voting by mail, but if he does that he can't mail his Trump Checks out.

Well, temporarily.
I’m in the parking lot of my grocery store, so I thought I’d check in.

Okay, Mac. It’s a bet.
By what date will you catch MHP, and are you giving an over/under on the betting line?

Damn. It’s hard to text with gloves on.
