I don't doubt that for a moment. However, I believe there will be an opposing wild card - the information that Bloomberg has gathered and will make public in a scorched earth campaign against Trump and his entire family. It’s clear that Bloomberg hates Trump and that he has the information, the resources, and the motivation to bring Trump down.

I also believe Trump will crack under the strain and that we’re in for some interesting viewing.

America's shmuck in chief apparently wants to have US troops all along the US-Canada border.
Does he think that any Canadian in their right mind would want to head to the States under the current circumstances?!
It would seem that the effete gomers aka Morons Я Us™ in Trumpington* are working overtime to disguise their ineptitude.
(* No, not the village on the outskirts of Cambridge, England)

And even with all that's been going on and Humpty Trumpty's wholly incompetent and irrational attitude and behavior towards same, that apparently has garnered him a 49% approval rating in the States (5 points higher than when last measured).
It's not coronavirus that Americans have to worry about, it's whatever is causing mass dementia.

I wonder if that would "trump" Trump's promise of economic prosperity?

There's a whole lot of VERY irrational thinking going on out there! frown

I think that's not only a possibility, but that a good debater may be able to get him to crack on national TV.

That kind of decision is to be expected not only because of Trump's peculiar rationales but also because he has surrounded himself with similar wackos.

Example: The foreign ministers of the G20 met to discuss COVID but were unable to release a statement because Pompeo insisted that the document only refer to the disease as either the Wuhan Virus or the China Virus. Great....focus on demonizing instead of your citizens' health. Totally wacko.

I think the Times and other media ought to start simultaneously publishing stuff such as your linked doc in comic book form for consumption by the deplorables.

Hardcore Trump supporters can be accurately portrayed as a cult. The same type of unquestioning fanaticism is in evidence. In fact, cult members ignore evidence, of which there is an abundance. Trump doesn't even try to hide it.

For sure.... In this case, the giant orange head is demonstrating it with his insistence, against the advice of medical experts, that American businesses open up again. Clearly that idea is self-serving. Social distancing means he has to shut down his businesses but he wants them to stay open, no matter how many people die as a result.

Doesn't get much stinkier than that.

Can't argue with that, but I doubt that all of them would be happy to drink COV-aID for him if they realized that he was selling them down the river to benefit the rich.

Sure there's a bottom layer that's dumber than stones and would follow him to their deaths, but I'm sure there's also a higher, smarter layer - the one just below the "Never Trumpers" - that's vulnerable to the right "reprogramming" effort.

Seattle Is Living Your Coronavirus Future

Among other things ...
President Trump’s talk of opening the United States for business by Easter is greeted in this precinct of sanity as the heartless bluster of a career con man. The public radio station in Seattle, KUOW, has stopped airing Trump’s live briefings because the volume of misinformation he puts out cannot be corrected in real time.

More disgusting crap out of the far right:

Medical Expert Who Corrects Trump Is Now a Target of the Far Right

Dr Anthony Fauci, the administration’s most outspoken advocate of emergency virus measures, faces a torrent of false claims that he is mobilizing to undermine the president.

That's why he'd fall back on COVfefe, instead of calling it COV-aiD... blush grin
He'd say that proves he 'knew it' all along.

Touting Virus Cure, ‘Simple Country Doctor’ Becomes a Right-Wing Star

How Dr Vladimir Zelenko's claims for his coronavirus treatment spread from a New York village all the way to President Trump.

As much as it would be tremendous to find a real treatment for COVID-19, let us hope that Zelenko's coronavirus "cure" winds up decimating Trumpty Dumpty's base who take the "cure" as gospel. Every little bit helps in casting out the White House demons.

Of course President Bonespur jumped in....the miracle cure was promoted by Sean Hannity over at that bastion of well-thought-out reporting, Fox News. And that other great American thinker, Rudy Giuliani, praised Zelenko for “thinking of solutions, just like the president.”

Interesting that the doctor with the miracle cure could only be reached by phone because he's in self-isolation. Tilt.
