It's like the sketch where Tim Meadows asks Tracy Morgan how many other black baseball players have broken the color barrier since Jackie Robinson.

I mean, it is a common theme of two guilty criminals being acquitted. Trump just had the privilege of confessing to the crime - and committing worse ones - through the middle of the trial and still getting away with it.

So COVID 19 is a problem, and it's not clear how big a problem it's going to be, but it's sure looking like it'll get worse before it gets better.

On the US side of things, Trump appears more concerned about its effect on the stock market (which has been bad these past two days) and his chances of reelection than on actually trying to do anything to prepare for it. The DHS, like most executive departments, is currently headed by an incompetent acting director who was chosen based on his history of persecuting immigrants and kissing Trump's ass rather than on fitness for the job.

So that's fun.

I can't wait for Bernie to win the election only for the inauguration to look like the end of Mars Attacks.

What I read is that, yeah, COVID-19 is going to be a problem, but the average death rate is at 2%. The most likely scenario is that it'll have a pandemic, then embed itself in to the cold & flu season, such that we get a cold, flu & COVID-19 season. We would have been further along with a vaccine at this point except all interest in coronaviruses went off a cliff once the panic around SARS and MERS died off.

At first I figured it was anti-Asian racism, but now I think the fears over COVID-19 being some bubonic plague type of global event are mostly driven by wishful thinking.

Yeah, the reason the stock market is worried is productivity. It's not that people are going to be dying in the streets (though let's be clear, a flu pandemic is no joke; a 2% fatality rate can still mean a whole lot of people, mostly elderly or immunocompromised), it's that businesses are closing, supply lines are being disrupted, and there's a lot of potential for the situation to get worse.

Racism absolutely plays a part in these periodic panics we see about diseases coming out of Asia and Africa.

Anyway, the president is going to give a speech, which I'm sure will reassure everyone.

Italy is now coronized, let's see if anyone boycotts Italian restaurants.

Anyway Trump is simultaneously claiming the coronavirus is a hoax and that he has the best people working on it, which suggests some critical uncertainty about what "hoax" means.

It's been slightly surreal seeing "said the quiet part loud" become a common turn of phrase used in places like the motherfucking Washington Post.

But boy, Trump sure said the quiet part loud when he said that if we had vote by mail everywhere, Republicans would never win another election.

Top headline I'm seeing on Google News right now is "Trump, facing sinking polls on pandemic, targets legal immigrants."

That's a Fox News headline.

You know, while reading an article today, I realized that there's never going to be a time in my life, no matter how long I live, where the phrase "President Donald Trump" isn't going to give me pause while my brain goes "What?!" forcing me to expend actual mental effort to remind myself that no, I do not in fact live in a bad 90's cartoon parody.
