"Trump is attempting to set the stage for a grand finale in which he can claim victory & demand reelection while standing on the corpses of 200K or so dead Americans. This will be an absurd argument but the nation has already seen a flood of absurdity..." https://t.co/c6q6h2DG1A

My latest: Like a virus, Trump adapts. He's now shifting his stance to set the stage for claiming 200,000 American deaths as a victory--so he can run for reelection as the great #coronavirus hero who saved the lives of millions. Please read, RT, and share. https://t.co/c6q6h2DG1A
