Trump Buries Science

None of this is surprising:
The Trump administration shelved a document created by the nation’s top disease investigators with step-by-step advice to local authorities on how and when to reopen restaurants and other public places during the still-raging coronavirus outbreak.

The 17-page report by a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention team, titled “Guidance for Implementing the Opening Up America Again Framework,” was researched and written to help faith leaders, business owners, educators and state and local officials as they begin to reopen.

It was supposed to be published last Friday, but agency scientists were told the guidance “would never see the light of day,” according to a CDC official.
"Science" and "facts" are anathema to Trump. He's pretty much a believer in witchcraft and magical thinking. Trump believes that if he orders it, by the strength of his will alone, the coronavirus will simply go away.

The last leader of a nation who believed that he could bend reality to his will was some mustachioed German dude, who "resigned" seventy-five years ago. It didn't work too well for him, either.

Yes, it's pretty much Mourning in America. And Trump is going snakeshit over this ad:

Ouch. Truth hurts, eh, Donnie?

Seems as though the virus has reached the White House. Reports say Trump’s valet has tested positive. Maybe hitting close to home will spur him into action to lead the country in these difficult times.

Only if... He hasn't a clue how or what, and listening to the sheep he calls advisers is not an option for him.

That and while I'm not a fan of CNN they are doing cease and desist
on some drumpf fakery as well.

The best cartoon I've seen is wordless, he's painted himself into a corner.

Blissfully unaware, Jon, of what is coming.

I'm looking forward to the look on their faces.

Gated communities are awesome, fish in a barrel.
