Because he’s the angel of death, Donald Trump is pressuring schools to reopen in the face of the glowing Skeletor skull that is coronavirus. Just yesterday, Betsy DeVos, the administration’s education something-something, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the administration is “very seriously” looking at withholding federal funds from schools that refuse to reopen.
And Trump, of course, has a raging death boner for our most vulnerable citizens, because disgruntled employees often fantasize about burning down their workplace on their last day. They just rarely get around to doing it.
But, hey, this is Trump we’re talking about.
Meanwhile, it was considered a matter of some urgency to spring Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, and Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer, out of prison so they wouldn’t be subjected to the deadly virus.
It’s clear where this is going, huh?

As Kayleigh McEnany leaves the podium, White House reporter Brian Karem shouts this question: “Kayleigh, if it's safe to send people back to schools, is it safe to send Manafort back to prison?”

I don’t have video of this exchange at the moment. If anyone finds it, I’ll embed it.
Still, the question is a good one.
