Don’t be fooled by the President Coffee Boy act

Trump? Never heard of him. I think he might have gotten us coffee and helped us appoint judges. It’s really easy to feel a sense of schadenfreude reading this, but you shouldn’t.

Looking back at historic events and people involved, putting it in context and attempting to evaluate those people and events with modern understanding is history.

Trump always puts Trump first, not America, and this will never change.

Trump saying he should not talk to them if they don’t “treat you right. Anyone who has been following Trump the past few years might still be shocked by this but I am not.

They never thought it would effect their lives. So Foxlandia dismissed as a hoax. Now that it may effect them, they call it a crisis.

“Fox News personalities such as Sean Hannity and Laura In­graham accused the news media of whipping up “mass hysteria” and being “panic pushers.” Fox Business host Trish Regan called the alleged media-Democratic alliance “yet another attempt to impeach the president.” But that was then. With Trump’s declaration on Friday that the virus constitutes a national […]

NPR Story on botched COVID-19 demonstrates the Single Scandal Theory of the Trump Administration

From NPR’s Fresh Air “Secretary Azar has not always given the president the worst-case scenario of what could happen. My understanding is he did not push to do aggressive additional testing in recent weeks, and that’s partly because more testing might have led to more cases being discovered of coronavirus outbreak, and the president had […]
