National Covid Shut Down?

If we had an actual president, this one’s an inevitable, “Yeah, we have to.”

“Shut it down now, and start over” is the message from health experts across the country as COVID-19 cases surge in more than 40 states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the U.S. could see 175,000 confirmed coronavirus-related deaths by August 15. “

But then a “real president” wouldn’t have:

  • Ignored and downplayed the pandemic threat
  • Completely ignored the critical need for national testing and contact tracing
  • Turned wearing masks into a political wedgie
  • Hamstrung the national Center for Disease Control, after being repeatedly warned it was coming
  • After dismantling the world’s literal “gold standard” for government agencies to monitor and head off exactly this kind healthcare disaster.
  • While he did rallies calling it “a new hoax
  • and continued playing more golf than any president in history.

But, we don’t have an actual “president”; we have the tangerine nightmare. And, there’s no way he’s going to do this…unless he can somehow prevent the November election by doing so.
