Incredible Rolling Stone article on the incredible bungling of the virus response.

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/covid-19-test-trump-admin-failed-disaster-995930/

My God. Itís as if the Keystone Cops are crazy fundamentalists and grifters. Long read but it is well, well worth it.

1. Just got that issue.

Can't wait to read it the old fashioned way. Dickinson doesn't leave many rocks unturned.

3. Rolling Stone and the MIami Herald are some of the best investigative journalism

Still around, along with the Boston Spotlight team.

6. 2/3 the way in is this breathtaking 1-sentance summary of where we are and how we got here


Having plunged the nation headlong and unprepared into the deadliest disease outbreak in a century, President Trump is now proving to be one of the greatest obstacles to an effective national response.

7. Thank you for highlighting this remark. It is very 'to the point' of the disasterous response of...

this administration's and the republican controlled Senate's responses to the CV epidemic. An uniquely trump-made disaster.

8. Redfield's reaming was a particularly satisfying read

It's obvious that the Mercers are still in there pushing incompetents onto this administration just because they can. All of these jerks came out of the same mold as Miller, Bannon, and the other human dross Big Dummy clings to. There is no way they could have stood up to handle this crisis, they're all intimidated by Big Dummy's volcanic temper and his refusal to hear any news that doesn't make him look like a great savior.

Now all we need is a major earthquake and/or volcanic eruption. He can toss shock absorbers for the former and garden hoses for the latter.

10. This reminds me of the reporting that the Rolling Stone...

did back in the 90's when they blew the lid off the HIV disease spread and origins.
Well done RS!!!

11. This is exactly what happens when you put an unqualified man at the top.


He chooses unqualified people in key roles or puts up stumbling blocks to others in key roles. I just wish some of tRumpís loyal followers had the capacity to understand this. But they donít so they continue to listen to him instead of the people who know exactly what went wrong and why.
