GOP governors may be reopening just to invalidate unemployment claims.



From George Chidi:

If there's no state order calling for businesses to be closed, the people who are unemployed can no longer claim that their unemployment is involuntary, even if it would be utter idiocy for them to return to work. A hair dresser or a massage therapist cannot maintain social distance. But they can certainly file for relief ... unless the law says they can work.

Nuclear Engineer Trump

Nuclear Technicians: "Nuclear Engineer Trump, the reactor is getting dangerously hot! What should we do?"

Nuclear Engineer Trump: "Insert the control rods!"

Nuclear Technicians: "It's working! The temperature is leveling off and shows signs that it might begin to decrease."

Nuclear Engineer Trump: "Problem solved! Now pull the control rods back out."
