1. Holy Shit!

This is truly unreal. He is penalizing communities who are trying to keep their constituents healthy.

5. Requiring people to wear masks doesn't jive with the Pence propaganda that all is well

It's all about appearances.

7. It will be all about appearances

Until your sister dies, or your husband, or your child.

Unreal.

2. They want us to die.

Eerily similar? Examining fates of the rich and poor during COVID-19 and 14th century Black Death pandemics

Kathryn McKinley | June 18, 2020

The coronavirus can infect anyone, but recent reporting has shown your socioeconomic status can play a big role, with a combination of job security, access to health care and mobility widening the gap in infection and mortality rates between rich and poor.

The wealthy work remotely and flee to resorts or pastoral second homes, while the urban poor are packed into small apartments and compelled to keep showing up to work.

As a medievalist, I’ve seen a version of this story before.

Following the 1348 Black Death in Italy, the Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio wrote a collection of 100 novellas titled, “The Decameron.” These stories, though fictional, give us a window into medieval life during the Black Death – and how some of the same fissures opened up between the rich and the poor. Cultural historians today see “The Decameron” as an invaluable source of information on everyday life in 14th-century Italy.

3. Very glad to be in NC with our good governor.

Cooper has been great throughout this horror.

4. Start the filings NOW....manslaughter charges for the first victim of COVID-19 from this...

That motherfucking clown needs to be held accountable...even the King Moron is making people sign waivers of liability to attend his freak show because he KNOWS there will be infected as a result.

I swear to god, the people of Nebraska need to start dumping the dead bodies on the lawn of the governor's mansion in Lincoln...

6. OMG, did he say the secret part out loud?

So is Trump blackmailing states to abandon mask policies? That would explain some things.

8. Stunning!

Wearing masks is such an easy thing - and it has a big impact on infection rates.

But the idiot-in-chief can't have it look like he failed when it comes to the virus.

Blackmail is his stock in trade.

9. Another example of Chump acting like a dictator.

How he gets away with it is a mystery.

10. Political Darwinism at work.

Survival of the non- Republicans in the corona virus era. The stupid factor is off the charts here. Before we merely had geriatric Republicans dying off by normal attrition, but Trump, as ever, has added his imprimatur brand enhancement of ignorance and immaturity.

We have been witness to the news and improved version of the GOP, remade in the mold of some vindictive, teenaged angst that is hyper focused on appearance at all cost. Trump thinks he resembles some sort of artist's version of a heroic, comic book action character... Sans caplet. When in fact he portrays himself as the lurching, lard bellied circus clown who squeezes his little horn at the audience whilst tripping over his huge, flapping shoes.
