As Almost One Thousand People Die a Day, Trump is Bragging About Dancing

Yesterday, the nation set an all-time record for new COVID cases. To be sure, yes, we are testing more and yes, that will mean that there will be more positive tests. But that’s not all it is, either.  From CNN:

More than 1,100 new deaths were reported Wednesday — the highest daily toll in more than a month, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

The 31 states are reporting at least 10% more new Covid-19 cases this week compared to last week: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Tennessee, Vermont, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Wyoming.

A 10% increase is a substantial increase, ask any stockbroker. By the way, chances are, your state is one of the ones listed above. A 10% increase, minimum, is deadly serious and as we’ve all come to understand now, deaths trail positives tests, which trail hospitalizations.

While Rome burns all around him, Trump can’t be bothered to learn to play a fiddle, he’ll just dance because he himself is happy. He survived COVID (god only knows, how) and likely thinks he had a right to survive. People like Trump tend to think that all people get what they deserve.

We can take some solace in the fact that he had to be in Ohio today at all. It is a damned ominous sign for his campaign. Ohio was supposed to be Republican ground, he won by like 9-10 points there last time, not even close. So the fact that he even has to campaign there is reason for us to dance, if anyone feels like moving their feet.

To make it stranger, he’s posting his message on top of someone else’s tweet of him dancing! Someone named McEnany from Florida? If one looks at the profile it looks like a Kayleigh clone or “kin” as we say down here. Now, we’re not saying they’re related, it just seems more likely than not. So why not use Kayleigh’s shot? Make it look more natural?

Americans were happy to respond.
