If All You Have is a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail

AND IF YOUR POLITICAL SKILL SET INCLUDES ONLY LYING AND DISTRACTING, EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER OCCASION TO LIE AND DISTRACT

This morning, Dana Milbank painfully elucidates the obvious: For Trump, a reckoning has come.

There is a limit to giving demeaning nicknames to your adversaries and making them go away. The coronavirus does not care about Trump’s nicknames. Trump can overturn political norms, and he can disregard the laws of Congress, but he cannot repeal the laws of science.

Here at Happy Acres, there is a table you pass by on the way to the dining room. On the table, there is information about who died last night.

I assume that, come a month or two or three, a lot more pictures will be showing up on that table each morning.

So this is personal. I take no pleasure in the particular reconing to which Trump has come. I grieve for the fact that all he has is a hammer.
