    I think that Dr. Fauci may be in disfavor for not showing enough respect to the medical opinion of his highly regarded genius of a colleague. Apparently, he has told reporters that Trump is wrong too many times. Fauci probably won't be fired for now, but he may not be put in the limelight quite as often, after he told a report that he "couldn't jump in front of the microphone and push him down." Usually, Fauci is good at avoiding that kind of rhetoric, but the man is clearly exhausted from having to deal with a narcissistic idiot of a boss and this crisis at the same time.

    Trump is looking at states like Idaho and Kansas, where it is very difficult to get tested. He is impressed by the low numbers of reported infections and thinks that he knows better how to handle the pandemic.

    Yeah, I saw that they trotted out the esteemed Doctor William Barr today, though I couldn't listen to him because I had to go change the cat box... is he their new epidemiologist, or is that Jared?

    What I have been fearing. I had hoped that attempts to sideline Fauci might finally start an effort to 25th Rump.

    ‘I’ll be the oversight’: Trump vows he will personally oversee $500 billion coronavirus slush fund

    At his daily coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was asked to justify the provision in the Republican stimulus bill that would grant his administration an unrestricted $500 billion slush fund to be distributed to any corporation imaginable with zero oversight or transparency.

    His response was that he would be the entire oversight of the program.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Well that sounds like a solid plan. Give oversight of a half trillion dollars to a guy who bankrupted a casino.

    He considers himself that best at just about everything, no matter how incompetent he actually is.

    He deserves the 25th Amendment used on him.

    It is interesting that Donald Trump says that he is rethinking strategy on dealing with the pandemic, and he will "listen to" Dr. Fauci and others but make his own decision. Apparently, Trump thinks that the social distancing thing won't work for our country, so he may decide to cancel it. Apparently, Trump thinks that he started that trend, but he never issued any orders to close anything down. Not schools, not churches, not businesses. Those orders all came at state and local levels, not the federal level. So he can't actually rescind anything, just blabber on about how everyone should do what he says. Personally, I think he should go in a corner with a bottle of chloroquine pills and start munching on them while the rest of the country mobilizes and organizes itself. Federal leadership at this point is going to make things so much worse than they need to be, given who the leader is.
