    As rethugicans swoon with unbridled adoration for someone who will be remembered in history as “the Orange mass-murderer” via negligence and narcissistic bumbling.

    Leadership, by definition, should lead. An opinion piece from Politico makes a suggestion in that vein.

    " … To really boost confidence, Trump could go big and bold, temporarily relocating White House operations and personnel to the hottest coronavirus spot in the country, New York City, and relax restrictions in a place where all can see. He could move his Resolute desk into his Trump Tower office and could instruct his White House staff to take the elevator down at lunchtime to patronize food carts and restaurants, take the subway and buses to work, and play pick-up games of basketball. …"

    And some feel that the resident is doing a good job …

    Oh, it’s definitely a weakened ‘democracy ‘. Crawling. Lower than a snake in a wagon track.

    Taking every side of an issue is bad enough, but 45 can do it in a single sentence. Shows what practice can accomplish.

    “Covid-19 Explained” (—

    By I. M. Nutzberger (Famous Pseudo-scientist with lots of mail order degrees)

    “I do feel at times this campaign has entered into an alternate universe.” Quoted from a comment of Hillary Clinton, August, 2016

    If you watched the television series “Fringe,” you know the trouble that arises when alternate universes collide. Strange contradictions take place in what we normally perceive as reality. In the puzzling activities surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we see this now.

    It is my theory that viruses leak through weak spots between universes. They are small enough to travel into those universes from inter-dimensional interstices. Their weird nature, unlike most of Earth’s organisms, are an obvious sign of alien origin. Most viruses are friendly, but some are evil. Covid-19 is a very evil one.

    (They could also be seeded by comets, which could be seen as spermatozoa on a large scale, but that is so far an unformed theory theory of mine. Partial credit for it goes to a certain “Monty Python” movie.)

    I realize this is not a proper subject for humor, as confusion and fear grip the entire world. Far be it from me to sell books about it (for further information, see my website “

    But the truth must be told! Nowhere is confusion greater than in the Trump administration’s contradictory reaction to this pandemic. Tom Toles portrays this well in today’s cartoon. (Thanks, Tom — a Medal Freedom may be in your future.)

    Through deep mental thinking, I theorize that the White House is a nexus to the alternate universe, or even universes. The chaotic nature of Trump’s management style has widened any inter-dimensional rift, that he continues to make worse.

    In future articles, I will further explain all this and what can be done to correct it. Look for my crack podcasts online. (— (—

    Interesting little tidbit… log onto “Weather Underground”, and on their local daily forecast, there will be an interactive map starting with your local area, which can be expanded to show reported COVID-19 cases and deaths on a county by county basis up to the entire country.

    I’m building a ventilator from an old vacuum cleaner and some plumbing stuff. I’ve asked the wife to be my first volunteer, but she’s strangely reluctant. Maybe I’ll try it on the cat?

    Healthcare professionals can’t even get enough N95 masks. One posted that she has to wear one for 5 days till it degrades. Of course, why ramp up production. Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control.” – DJ Trump

    OMFG, Seriously, let’s be clear here, this is what the Republican party have come to: ‘let’s genocide the elderly’ to save the wealthy? Is this the government of the United States or North Korea? If this was any previous Administration would we not be outraged, immediately send troops & remove this (I don’t’ have the words to describe this POS).

    Tell you what, #YOUFIRST! To every trump supporter that is old enough to be a grandparent (& lets face it in states that are trump’s base that age could be what 32?), the diehard #MAGA supporters, & willing to show us Liberals just what you are made of, your resolve, your diehard support & willing to die for your beloved orange messiah, I think you should all show us the way!

    But you should all do it fast, show us up. You should all gather in your local town square, save yourself a lot of suffering, make a huge batch of Kool-Aid with cyanide & drink it. THAT WILL SHOW US!! We will properly bury you ALL as martyrs, we will properly mourn you all as martyrs, God Damn IT we will even do a 45 gun salute!! But you got to show us the way!! YOU FIRST! Then we will follow! #magaShowUsTheWay #magaMartyrs

    The daily briefings from the White House are taking on an uncanny resemblance of those old serials we used to see at the movies. Suspense, cliff-hanging endings, and an urgent appeal to watch the next episode.

    Anyone who watches a steady diet of FOX news only believes Trump, no matter what he does or says. Unfortunate, because they are unreachable. There will be no coordinated Federal response to the virus. Begging won’t help. I’m sad for our country.

    I think you underestimate the genius of the strategy. Throw out dozens or hundreds of statements about any given topic. One of those statements might come close to the truth, and the admin can say, with perfect hindsight, “We’ve been saying that all along!”
