This is scary, and it's been on my mind too.

When Hitler concluded the war was lost, he issued something called the Nero Decree, to basically destroy Germany's infrastructure and render its industries useless. It was defied, but the leader believed, "If I'm going down, Germany is coming down with me." He believed Germans didn't deserve to exist, because "they" had failed him.

Yes. All of it.

In fact, we were discussing the possibility this virus was airborne long before it was established in the US media, because studies out of China (and then Italy) indicated as much. In Wuhan, as others have pointed out, they sprayed disinfectant into the air.

Four months before our media routinely explained to us that COVID-19 was airborne, there was this study (March 9) that a few outlets covered, stating that the novel coronavirus could survive in air for (at least) three hours.

Yes.

I'm tired of this fantasy that if only so-and-so stepped up, we wouldn't be in this or that mess.

DOZENS of people have come forward, starting with Christine Blasey Ford, Michael Avenatti (a con man), Robert Mueller and Michael Cohen, Don McGahn, Allen Weisenberg, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, and going through all the rest, the dozens, from Fiona Hill to Colonel Vindman. They were always going to save us. Bolton couldn't save us. Cohen couldn't save us. Mattis, Kelly and Tillerson couldn't save us. Omarosa couldn't save us. Oh, but if only Gary Cohn had stepped forward--it would be different this time.

And there was the fury at Mueller when his testimony didn't save us.

Over and over again. It's a load of rubbish.

And we saw with our own eyes yesterday what would have happened if Woodward had come forward in February. We saw it with our own eyes. He did what psychopaths always do. And it would be all be forgotten by today.

The idea Woodward could have saved us is another fantasy that has twisted a story about Trump's incompetence and psychopathology into a story about a journalist being the enemy.

In a twisted way, he did the exact same thing with COVID that he did with your other

examples.

He used it to divide us, set one third of us against the other two thirds. In most of your examples he said something existed that didn't exist in order to enrage people. With COVID, he said something didn't exist that actually does exist, to enrage people.

"Good panic" is a good way to put it, because it is panic that creates division, and he believes he's more popular when his supporters are angry.

What happened yesterday and today is exactly what would have happened

in February, and what always happens when Trump is caught red-handed in a dangerous or criminal deception or doing something illegal.

Trump figures out some explanation, excuse, justification, muddies the waters, doubles down, goes on Fox and gives a confusing, unintelligible interview, blames somebody else, sends out surrogates to lie for him. Meanwhile the virus continues to rage across America.

"It was a perfect phone call."

"We get to keep all the oil" (in Syria).

"There was no collusion."

There really is something to this.

So many criminals have been caught because, in the end, they wanted the police to know how "clever" they were. They want credit for their crimes. That's also why they often taunt and communicate with the police and reporters.

A talkative sociopath is a dream come true.

It will continue to reverberate because COVID 19 isn't going away.

Every time coronavirus is in the news, either someone will bring it up, or the new disclosure will be linked in people's memories and minds: Trump knew, Trump lied. It's kind of like if you learn something really embarrassing about a friend; every time you see that friend you think of them in a new light.

Trump's mindset: The Curious Case of Dalia Dippolito

Trump's behavior when it comes to believing that he can win people over, convince them of anything if only he can appeal to them directly, is similar to the traits exhibited by convicted criminal Dalia Dippolito. Dippolito was caught on video arranging a hit on her husband. Unbeknownst to her, the man she was hiring was an undercover police officer. A sting operation intercepted her when she raced back to her home after receiving a call that her husband had just been assassinated.

Prior to that, she had pressured her husband to sign over to her ownership of their house. She had also made anonymous phone calls to the police accusing her own husband of drug dealing, trying to set him up to get him arrested and thrown in prison. When that didn't work, she decided to have him killed.

Her interrogation is remarkable. She tells her interrogator, in effect, "You didn't see what you saw on that tape. the tape is lying." When she was provided her one phone call she called her husband, the man she'd just tried to have killed, and demanded to see him in person, because she believed, if she could just be alone with him, she could convince him of her innocence. Her husband had seen the surveillance video, and in spite of that Dippolito believed: If I can just talk to him face to face, I can manipulate him and win him over, like I've won everybody over all my life.

She is a textbook example of a narcissistic psychopath.

The Curious Case of Dalia Dippolito

The case that he reminds me of is Dalia Dippolito. She was caught on video arranging a hit on her husband. Unbeknownst to her, the man she was hiring was an undercover police officer. A police sting caught her when she came back to her home believing her husband had just been assassinated.

Her interrogation is remarkable. When she was provided one phone call she called her husband, the man she'd just tried to have killed, and demanded to see him in person, because she believed, if she could just be alone with him, she could convince him of her innocence. That was her obsession: If I can just talk to him face to face, I can manipulate him and win him over, like I've won everybody over all my life.

She is a textbook example of a psychopath.
