Americans are dying, but who cares about that? Trump is behind the podium for ratings and to look good. He was giving his daily coronavirus briefing Monday, when the wind began to gust and muss up his hair. Now, bear in mind, this is the man who wouldn’t go to a cemetery in Paris to honor fallen American soldiers, because it was raining and he didn’t want his hair to look bad on camera. Life and death matters never trump (you should pardon the expression) issues of personal appearance. The man has priorities.

You can tell how bored he is with all this. What does he care about beds at the Javitz Center, or anywhere else for that matter? He’s got real issues, like baldness, and the desperate need to conceal it.
Take another listen. He’s talking about beds, then he sees a box blowing — or something — then he plays with his hair and then forces himself back to reading stats, in a bored monotone. This is what’s leading us through our darkest hour in many a decade.
And while this was going on, Mike Lindell, the My Pillow guy, who is a Fox advertiser, and who, not surprisingly, has been sued for deceptive marketing and unsupported health claims was introduced as a key soldier on the battlefield of coronavirus. He’s allegedly going to manufacture face masks. Mask pillows? Who knows?
Trump has the MyPillow guy in a pandemic press conference and that is a sentence that proves we are in the most asinine assholes of fucking timelines. That or the simulation is glitching HARD. A clown car filled with Fredos on fire, off the cliff.

I’ve often questioned if we aren’t in the Matrix and Morpheus can’t get us back online. Or maybe there was a third pill and we took that, and now we’re in this phuquing nightmare. And check this out from historian Kevin Kruse.
Two days ago, I tweeted this.
Right now, Trump has the My Pillow guy speaking in the Rose Garden. https://t.co/tGYtidILaM

I’m sure that you read that Trump called ARod (Alex Rodriguez) and J Lo the other day to solicit their views on the coronavirus. This is not unusual at all, especially when Trump’s bored. When he was at the G20 he found that too boring to pay attention to and so began tweeting birthday greetings to celebrities on Twitter.
This is vintage Trump. He’s not even paying attention, let alone on board for a global health and humanitarian crisis. He’s just going through the motions at this point, and we haven’t even seen the worst of COVID-19 in this country yet. You know this isn’t going to get any better, right?
