I know facts don’t matter. Trump’s own words don’t matter. Only faith in Fox News matters. But it must be said. The scariest thing I read this morning — and I don’t necessarily disagree — was a conservative op-ed touted by Terrible Tom Cotton that suggests the crisis might help Trump. His dishonest, autocratic bluster that blames everyone else (particularly China) for an economic and health disaster will feed the populist surge. Reality be damned. This is the TV presidency.
