You would have thought this might have sunk in with him. When Dr. Birx or Dr. Fauci tried to tell him what was happening. When the virus didn’t go away with the heat. When the death count exceeded his lowball predictions. When we became the country with the most deaths in the world. When Herman Cain died after attending one of his rallies.
But it never did.
He went to a damn indoor fundraiser with his own supporters today after knowing that he was exposed to the virus. He didn’t accept the reality of the virus enough even to manage his own behavior, let alone the rest of the country…
I guess I know one thing. I know that he will spend a lot of time in quarantine watching cable news and live-tweeting—so in that sense his “management” of this virus won’t be much different than it was before.
