COVID-19, Day 96

This article at the Washington Post–appropriately titled “Coronavirus has come to Trump country”–is pretty damning.

In his latest interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump called testing “overrated” and said people are wearing masks “as a way to signal disapproval of him.” This sort of right-vs-left treatment of the virus is going to get a lot of his supporters hurt. Many will die.

The virus and our response to it should not be political, but it’s hard to be surprised that Trump is once again using a national crisis to divide the country.
