In his op-ed, Joe Biden got one thing wrong. (And I certainly hope the glitch was intentional—that it didn’t reflect a failure of perception on Joe’s part.)
Biden implied that Trump is putting political gain over the lives of Americans.
That is not a valid way of looking at the situation. The rational way for Trump to advance his own political interests—even now; yes, even now—would be to lead a national effort to implement testing and contact tracing.
Trump does indeed think he is promoting his political interests. But he is delusional.
Today, we are heading to a massive confrontation between the Senate testimony by Dr. Fauci and the massive display of delusion at yesterday’s news conference.
The irresistible force is about to collide with the immovable object.
You are advised to stand well away from the fan.
