Trump bets that voters are as impatient as he is

Donald Trump’s vow Tuesday that he would “love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” less than three weeks from now, was the clearest signal yet of the political logic he hopes to follow in a presidential campaign shadowed by global pandemic.

He is eager to own the only good thing about a crisis that has paralyzed the country and left millions of people in housebound despair: The reality that life will at some point slowly lurch back to normal.

He is determined to make other people—specifically, governors and public health officials—own everything else, including the reality that massive shutdowns will continue long after the Christian holy day on April 12.

Trump’s Monday evening briefing at the White House and his remarks this afternoon at a “virtual townhall” hosted in the Rose Garden represented a new chapter in audacity from a president who has already authored volumes on the theme.

Trump is betting that voters are as stupid as him. Fixed it for you.

3. What trumpie fails to understand is this:

He's NOT in charge of closures at the state level. The governors are. And that has him screaming.

Governors of CA, NY, WA and many others are NOT going to rescind the distancing orders, closures of businesses and schools and quarantine at home guidance.

He has NO control over the states. Keep that in mind, folks.
