I think the basic problem is that science moves slowly and the virus is fast.

Big congrats to the @allinwithchris  team for *two* Emmy nominations: one of our border special and another for our climate special.

Millions of people out of work, 160,000 dead, thousands of schools won't open this fall, and this what they have. They want to talk about t-shirts. This is what they have. This is their vision for addressing the nation's once-in-a-century catastrophe.

Distance learning for 6 year olds while college freshman are on campus! Makes ton of sense.

@atrupar  somewhat telling the player comes over and *physically bends his arm at the elbow* because of how immediately and viscerally wrong that gesture is

hard to square with the state polls released today

yeah it's just a very weird moment, and I'm very inclined to give the benefit of the doubt.

This was the George W Bush project!

@jaycaspiankang  @jbouieOh  I agree w you about their best path forward, I think. As I look back, I actually think having LGBT rights as a massively salient issue gave them a suitable outgroup to rail against, which was a key part of the whole thing.

Yes, and also preserving the “yes the president can unilaterally do these kinds of things” for future use.


In my absolutely darkest moments right after the 2016 election I could not imagine this moment: thousands of Americans dying a day, an economic contraction to rival the Great Depression and Trump just listing off the names of CEOs while congratulating himself for a job well done

Pretty clear Trump is actively seeking to destroy the post office so as to sabotage free and fair elections in the midst of a pandemic.

We are quite literally doing a worse job of containing the virus than any other country on earth.

First time illegal entry into the United States is a misdemeanor. Lying on or omitting materially relevant information from your SF86 (as Jared Kushner did multiple times by his own admission) is a felony. Guess which one's getting prosecuted?

Every single problem we’re dealing with now stems from the fact that we never actually suppressed the virus and then put the infrastructure in place to keep it suppressed. It’s like we’re trying to figure out a way to live in a burning building. It doesn’t work.

Definitely just a weird coincidence that the last two Republican presidencies both featured legacy cases who coasted on their inheritance, didn't win the popular vote to get elected, and then once in power ushered in world-historical catastrophe and suffering.

The US had ***ten times*** the deaths today from COVID than the Beirut blast and it’s just...a Wednesday. Tomorrow will likely be worse.
