Our high-level of cases is “a badge of honor” because it reflects the great job we’re doing testing. That line is so stupid that it will actually work on his base.

Playbook: By saying he's taking hydroxychloroquine and by refusing to use a mask, "Trump has unleashed the wail of a siren to his base that he is in charge — not the medical experts in his administration — and will do as he pleases." https://t.co/fG1VYNWDP2

Is @sebgorka the most pranked major talk radio host? A prankster called into his show this afternoon and asked if it was true that Gorka tried to join the KKK, but couldn't join because they couldn't find a hood big enough for his head. Gorka quickly cut him off.

No one’s explained how they expect workers to get to the farms, where they’re going to stay, what the living facilities will be, what the wages are. Ludicrous to expect an urban population to move to the country for a few weeks.

Trump demands that @WHO “demonstrate independence from China.” Yet if he pulls U.S. funding, that will make the W.H.O. far more dependent on China. China is already rushing to fill the vacuum that America leaves behind.
