Trump has never been worsebut his approval is surging. Why?

Maybe enough Americans in enough states just don't care. Or maybe enough of them do care but in an affirmative way. They like politics conducted like pro-wrestling. They smile at the vulgarity. They approve of a president who acts and thinks like a mob boss and prefer a politics of clientalistic corruption to an administrative state of well-trained experts and bureaucrats who aspire to scrupulous competence and ideological neutrality (while sometimes falling short of achieving it).

My estimation of President Trump has never been lower than it is right now. And his approval rating has never been higher.

How the Pandemic Is Magnifying America's Class Divide


In some respects, the pandemic is an equalizer: It can afflict princes and paupers alike, and no one who hopes to stay healthy is exempt from the strictures of social distancing. But the American response to the virus is laying bare class divides that are often camouflaged — in access to health care, child care, education, living space, even internet bandwidth.

Good for you. Yamiche, for not taking the bait, hang in there :great:



Trump berated a black journalist, telling her to 'be nice' and not 'threatening' at a coronavirus briefing, but she refused to take the bait

Yamiche Alcindor, a "PBS NewsHour" reporter with extensive experience covering the White House, confronted President Donald Trump with his own statements Sunday and provoked a hostile response that critics said had racist undertones.
