Trump In Michigan

One Week Is A Lifetime For 36,000

Columbia University reports that if the pandemic was addressed by this administration just one week earlier, 36,000 lives would have been saved. The President is asked about the report and calls it a ‘political hit job.’ He responded to questions without wearing a mask. He then toured the plant, sans mask. Why does he do that?

Why Not Wear A Mask?

It sends a message to the great unwashed that it is okay to walk around without a mask, and believe you me, they are. In the south, only about 35% are masked up. It is like he doesn’t care what happens to the people who believe in him. The press asks him about PPE, and the President goes into his routine. He says he wore a mask backstage, but will not wear one for the press. It is bizarre. Why not? It would encourage others to protect themselves.

Bread Lines And The New Poor

Michigan has 28% unemployment, one of the highest in the nation. Remnants of right-wing organizations in Michigan keep storming the state capitol with guns, demanding that the state reopen. Welcome to the new America.
