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.

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.

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.

Earlier in the United States inadequate response to the COVID pandemic, President Bonespur said: "I don't take responsibility at all." In The Atlantic, David Frum presents considerable evidence that it is all Trump's fault.

A few days ago the Obese Orange One ordered 3M to stop shipping medical masks to Canada and Latin America. Today, Secretary of State Mike PompousOne walked it back with a statement about "....because we are a good and generous people".

Right, Mike....it had nothing to do with:

* the fact that you can't make the masks without a special pulp that you get from Canada

* the fact that 1,600 Canadian Nurses cross the border at Windsor every day to work in Detroit hospitals

* the fact that Canada manufactures rubber gloves and test kits shipped into the U.S. daily

* the fact that, if Canada pulled the plug on the above, President Bonespur have to eat a giant portion of crow

Someone needs to sit Trump down and explain that Free Trade is a two-way street.

Nor do I, but I always appreciate good humor, and even moreso during these dark days. (Whether the linked article is good humor is an altogether different issue.)

On a different note: Morbid curiosity keeps me following the links posted in this thread, but what really gets to me is the list of endlessly interesting links on the linked pages, ad infinitum, and two hours later I somehow find myself reading about Kim Kardashian.

My solution to the problem, which took me waaay too long to think of, is to use Roadblock for Mac's "Block and Hide Visually" functionality to hide those links. (Aside from its marvelous ability to hide any HTML element on a web page, Roadblock is also a good content blocker.)
