Where is Nicolle?

She has been off the entire week? Does she have the virus?

I like John Heilemann but he is no Nicolle.

Why is Trump so insistent on calling it the "Chinese Virus"?

What does he hope to accomplish?

He has recruited FOX News hosts and other to promote his new name for the coronavirus?

Is it SOP for Donald Trump to always find a way to blame someone else for his own deficiencies?

He cannot accept responsibility or blame for anything.

Whatever happens in the future will be the fault of the Chinese, not Donald Trump.

Why do reporters continue to show up to be verbally abused by Trump?

Why do their bosses send them into such situations?

Donald Trump wants to be in charge of everything, but he wants to be responsible for nothing.

Reporters should be permitted to walk out when he starts talking about fake news and how terrible reporters are and how they should sit closer together so they can all catch the virus and maybe die?

He does not give White House news conferences anymore. The reporters should not have to put up with this abusive behavior.

Throwing money at a problem may offer temporary relief but it does not fix the problem.

Republicans are very good at throwing money at problems, although they accuse the Democrats of doing it.

They hate government and have a very difficult time trying to make it work. We see it first hand today.

Rather than pay unemployment benefits to laid-off workers, they would prefer to mail them a one-time check.

Rather than test the people for coronavirus, they would prefer to just talk about it. Nobody makes lemonade out of lemons better than Republicans.

Stock market in freefall? No problem. Get the Fed to give them a $trillion and a half dollars.

Big corporations eat their seed corn. No problem. Bail them out with billions of dollars.

But they never fix the problems.

Do you believe we can survive 4 more years of Donald Trump as President?

I wish I thought we could.

But the lies and deception are so corrosive to everything we ever believed in. And we know it is not going to change.

A country cannot survive under such fake conditions, in my opinion.

There is a natural repulsion that makes it impossible to accept.

We can look at nothing in an honest and sincere way when our leaders refuse to accept the truth, but rather choose to live in a false and fake world.

I wish we could simply overlook the lies and the arrogance and pretend that it doesn't really matter. All politicians are the same. It is no big deal.

But it eats at our soul like a plague.

How many people will simply toss their census request in the trash?

Rather than go online and fill it out?

I don't think this is going to work that well?

Some people don't have computers and some don't know how to use them.

Some people will see it as "junk mail" and throw it in the trash.

The government can do very little right nowadays.

The lies and deceptions continue...

In fact, they never ended.

The American people are being used as guinea pigs by Trump and the Republicans.

They never had any intent to do anything about the Covid-19 pandemic. After all, their goal has been to destroy the administrative state and to tear down government as we know it. There was a plan behind creating "acting" positions in all the Departments of the Executive Branch.

Now, they have come to the realization that they must at least pretend they are willing to do something about the coronavirus pandemic. Not because they are that concerned about the number of deaths that we might see, but because of the possible political consequences of doing nothing. The gamble is too great to ignore anymore.

The lies and deception is in their plan to bailout and to give taxpayer money to every industry affected by this crisis. Everyone from airline executives to hotel owners to casino operations have their hands out. It is not enough just to help those people who have lost their jobs and are living paycheck to paycheck anyway. They have to find a way to continue to destroy the government in the process.

Mitch McConnell and the Republicans see this crisis as an opportunity. They have lied to the American people about how they suddenly became so sincere and concerned about their lives. They care that the stock market is crashing and nothing has stopped the free fall. Their plan now is to shut down the floor of the stock exchange and just permit online trading. Their faith in the market has been exposed for all to see.

They care about their big business friends. And not much more.

FOX viewers are reporting severe cases of whiplash.

Just last week, they turned on their favorite channel to hear Hannity, Pirro, Dobbs, Tucker, Ingraham, et al explain how this coronavirus was nothing but a "hoax". It was just like the Mueller investigation and the Ukraine hoax. It was all intended to tear down Dear Leader.

Then they wake up and turn on the FOX Morning crowd and they discover that the virus is very real and Dear Leader has been fighting it all along. He knew before anyone that it was a "pandemic". They had to double-check to make sure they were on the right channel?

Yep! Yesterday, they were happy and secure. Today, they might die from a novel coronavirus. Dear Leader must have been trying to protect them. But, it must be true? Even Hannity is saying everything Dear Leader is saying. What happened while they were sleeping?

Maybe they should see the Doctor with this awful crick in the neck? It feels like a car-wreck.

What day is it??

March 18, 2020

Who, at FOX News, ordered their people to halt the political propaganda and to report seriously?

On the crisis now facing our nation?

It's like they changed overnight. Even Hannity and Jeanine Pirro are reporting the virus is now a serious matter. It was an entirely different story just a week ago?

They put a couple of their hosts on leave, just to prove they were serious about it.

It seems that Donald Trump and the Republicans got the memo, also?
