Trump's daily stream of coronavirus lies are all about to hit a wall

I take no joy whatsoever in writing this particularly grim post, but Donald Trump's relentless string of lies about the coronavirus going away, being just like the flu, being a media hoax, and being a problem that governors and governors alone should handle are all about to hit a wall as the death toll mounts across the country.

Americans of all stripes will have the opportunity to see with their own eyes the deadly results of a president who was too incoherent, too incompetent, and too inhumane to worry about leading an unprepared nation into an ambush blindfolded. And no region will be spared, not even those that rabidly support Trump.

In fact, many of the rural and southern regions of the country that make up some of Trump's strongholds stand to get pummeled, as Daily Kos community member Dartagnan noted over the weekend. In those regions, Trump and a host of GOP governors will bear specific responsibility for sowing confusion over the seriousness of the epidemic and the dire need for social distancing to slow its spread. “There is no city anywhere in the world that can withstand the outbreak that would occur if there isn’t rigorous social distancing,” Tom Frieden, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director, told Politico.

Emerging hot spots, according to modeling done by Columbia University epidemiologists, include St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana, rural Tennessee just north of Nashville, and parts of southwest Georgia near Albany. Most of these rural areas are already desperately low on the resources and medical personnel necessary to handle an influx of COVID-19 cases.

3. Writer Kerry Eleveld is naive, to borrow a term from Modly..

It has yet to be demonstrated that

"..Trump and a host of GOP governors will bear specific responsibility.." for ANYTHING.
