Live Blog below — Who knew the flu ended World War I and had it on their bingo card?


5:00* PM EDT (*now announced for 530pm)

Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Hold a Press Briefing

The White House


Howell Raines “We’ve been presented with a sinister whirlwind of doubletalk.”

Trump is practicing the technique of “reflexive control”, by encouraging street demonstrations against his own guidelines using tweets and these pseudo-campaign rallies. It is reflexive because false consciousness has become a commodity.

….on Saturday, Trump referred to social distancing measures taken at U.S. Air Force Academy’s commencement ceremony as “politically correct”…

For example, on Friday, gyms and tattoo parlors will reopen in GA because its governor says it’s OK with social distancing. Darn political correctness. Hair care trumps health care.
