When the going gets tough, the tough go golfing. Or at least Donald Trump does. This three minute recap of the Memorial Day weekend and today’s new milestone in America, 100,000 dead from COVID-19, puts Trump’s coronavirus response and his entire presidency into a simple context: America has no government right now. We’re in one of the wrost crises we have ever faced and we lack a functioning federal government.

Here are some stunning statistics to go with this.

Reich is right. A lot of Americans could be out in the street and hungry. Trump is setting himself up to be Herbert Hoover Redux — and you think he’s worried? Hell, no. He’s playing golf. And why should he worry? Corporations are being bailed out and the Dow is okay. What else matters?
