Anybody who doubts the headline is not paying attention. We are eight weeks behind the curve because of the President and his supporters like these. That translates into massive extra deaths. Yesterday, almost 1,000 people died in Italy from this virus. ONE day. That is the price they are paying for their slow reaction. We are subject to the same laws of nature and are about where they were two weeks ago.
If there was any doubt about the role Fox News plays as the damaging propaganda arm of the Trump GOP, please note the short time between minimizing the threat – as Trump had been doing – to telling the truth about the mortal danger we face. From one day to the next. About the time that Trump decided that playing a “wartime President” on TV was his last hope for political survival.
