3. Everyone knows he's just blustering. Two days ago, he was going to "reopen" next week.

Hes already pushed it back two weeks. Hell do it again in a week or so.

5. The media ALWAYS provide Trump an out

He blabs on teevee about chloroquin being a cure for Covid-19, and a couple in Arizona ingest aquarium cleaner in hopes of immunizing themselves. The husband dies, and the wife nearly dies. The wife explicitly mentions Trump's remarks as the reason they did it, and the media fall all over themselves to excuse Trump's reckless remarks because he was talking about a different chloroquin compound, a fine point that obviously escaped the luckless Arizonans.

Now Trump makes another reckless statement about everything being back to normal by Easter, and people clustering together for Easter worship services, just like any other year. Utter madness. But the media temper the madness by fixating on the conditionals in Trump's statements, a "maybe" that may escape the notice of some people who will endanger their health and possibly die following Trump's advice.

But he said "maybe." And that ends all responsibility for Trump, according to our faultless media outlets.

6. He is becoming smaller and smaller before the nation and the world's eyes.

 

No one listens to anything he has to say anymore.

He's in way over his head, and even when he says something is absolute, he reverses it within 24 hours - he's cried wolf so many times that he's beginning to get the same treatment that the boy did.
