If Donald Trump was on Apollo 13, he would have flicked the switch marked 'no'.

 

 

Ok, that's hilarious.

Looked at part of today's Covid-19 White House press briefing.

 

Turned off when Trump started talking up the military and speaking of more new planes and missiles coming!

 

What the hell has that got to do with Covid-19? 

 

Is he planning another war to "get them financially out of this"? (More $$$$$$$ for him personally?)

The Washington Post - How Americans think Trump is handling coronavirus

 

today

 


President Trump’s administration was caught flat-footed by the coronavirus outbreak, despite warnings months in advance from U.S. intelligence officials. ...

 

But despite all that, Trump is receiving overall positive approval ratings right now, reports The Fix’s Aaron Blake:

 

Monmouth [University] showed that 50 percent say he’s done a ‘good job’ on the coronavirus, vs. 45 percent who say he’s done a ‘bad job.’

 

And Trump’s overall approval rating stands at an average 44.7 percent from recent polls, a high over the past three years.

 

Let’s talk about why that might be.

 

  • Americans often rally around a president during and immediately after a crisis. (George W. Bush in the days after 9/11 had a massive 86 percent approval rating.)   
    Trump is on TV daily, sometimes for multiple hours, giving briefings to journalists about the virus. 

  • By contrast, Democrats’ main counter to Trump is their likely nominee, former vice president Joe Biden.
    He’s been in his home like almost everyone else, and he’s struggled to find a way to inject himself in the conversation ...

  • Congress is trying to pass a massive $2 trillion aid package that will send checks to many Americans. 
    If that gets to Trump’s desk soon and he signs it, he can talk about how he signed the bill that will help ordinary Americans (and gives a lifeline to the airline industry and other small and large businesses). ...

The only possible explanation is that there is a god, and he hates us.

The Washington Post - Trump continues to push to reopen the economy, despite health risks

 

today

 


As the Senate voted to approve a $2 trillion relief package late on Wednesday, the president continued to press to reopen the economy swiftly - against the advice of many public health experts, who warn doing so would lead to an overwhelming spike in new cases and deaths.

 

As of Wednesday evening, more than 900 people in the country had died, marking the first day with more than 200 deaths. 

 

The nationwide total has now surpassed 67,000 cases.

 

The virus’s continued spread has led to some extraordinary scenarios: Local governments are releasing thousands of nonviolent inmates, states are scrambling for dwindling supplies of protective equipment, and resource-strapped hospitals are caught in private, heated debates over when to risk it all to save patients.

 

President Trump has repeatedly said he doesn’t need to implement the Defense Production Act to force companies to produce supplies.

 

But some relief may come in the form of the rescue package approved by the Senate, the largest in history. 

 

The bill will be voted on by the House on Friday, and the president has said he intends to sign immediately.

 

Most of the $2 trillion will end up in the hands of laid-off workers, small businesses, hospitals and state and local governments, but slices are also going to American corporate titans - including airlines and hotels ...
