Much like a vegan plot to bring down midwestern meat processing plants, the nonsense level has risen because Trump is about taking the system down for grievance reasons. Gotta own the libs, because it’s all about crab buckets for Trumpists.
Whether or not #Cult45 realizes it, their most telling trait IMO is one Tom and Charlie fingered: They vote to hurt others *without gaining anything*. Very different from usual political tug-of-war over distribution of benefits and costs. Pure malice. Gratuitous cruelty. 😡— Antone Johnson 😷 (@antonejohnson) April 20, 2020
“The organisers behind these (lockdown) protests have largely been conservative, pro-Trump and pro-gun activists….reminiscent of #Trump campaign events”
And this makes so much sense, not.
The Trump administration took Surgeon General Jerome Adams off television last week after his controversial remarks on Covid-19’s threat to minorities, silencing the White House’s loudest voice on racial disparities even as concerns mount about risks to communities of color.
Adams made just one TV appearance last week, a steep decline from the 10-plus TV appearances he made the prior week on programs like ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’ “This Morning” and NBC’s “Today Show.” The surgeon general received multiple requests for high-profile media appearances last week that the White House didn’t accept, said two people with knowledge of some of those requests. Adams also hasn’t made an appearance at a White House press briefing since April 10.
Adams’ disappearance on the airwaves and at the White House podium followed comments at a press briefing on April 10 that progressives attacked as racially insensitive for shifting responsibility to minorities. But health officials also fear that minimizing Adams means the White House is retreating from questions about its work on behalf of minority communities, a perennially sensitive issue for President Donald Trump and his administration.

Even rural voters and noncollege whites worry more about lifting restrictions too quickly than they do about getting economy going.
This suggests Trump's "LIBERATE" nonsense is aimed at shriveled minorities.
