A day late and a dollar short doesn’t even begin to describe Donald Trump’s massively stupid and ineffectual response to the coronavirus pandemic. 128,000 Americans are dead, and today was another record breaking day of cases reported, more than 50,000 today, according to the New York Times. The Times notes that this is the sixth time in nine days that a record has been broken.

Mike Pence had planned to travel to red state Arizona on Thursday but had to reschedule to Wednesday and change his itinerary because Secret Service agents were falling ill due to the coronavirus. Washington Post:

The Secret Service needed time to bring in healthy agents and other personnel to replace the ones who were either sick or most likely sick, one of the officials said. The official said the Secret Service estimated that a total of eight to 10 agents and other officers from sister agencies — all of whom were helping prepare for Pence’s visit to Arizona — had fallen ill.

This is the second time in recent weeks that Secret Service agents preparing for a White House or Trump campaign event outside of Washington have contracted the virus. At least three Secret Service personnel working on the advance team for President Trump’s Tulsa rally on June 20 tested positive for covid-19. Two agents tested positive hours before the indoor stadium event was held and dozens of agents who were on site for the rally were ordered to self-quarantine when they arrived home.

Against this embarrassing backdrop, totally of Donald Trump’s creation, because he repressed information about the virus early on, when it could have been stopped much more easily than now, Republican Voters Against Trump are airing this ad in Arizona.

Let’s see Trump and Martha McSally explain this one away.

Ass hats will think it came from Dems anyway. The cultic will not have their minds changed. Been there – done that and it took 13 years to wake up and another two to walk away. (Christian Cult.)

I wonder how many of the agents who just tested positive were on the Tulsa trip.

Whatever the number, it was too many.

The more succinct “too little, too late” is becoming the tragic refrain of this outbreak. And contrary to Trump’s melted brain tweets, the tragedy is our infection rate rather than his collapsing poll numbers. McConnell giving Trump a couple of months to turn all this around was wishful thinking.

Moscow Mitch is getting what he wants: power to break the country for the next 30 to 40 years.

Oh, come ON, P J. That’s a consolation prize and a pretty crap one at that. He’s being deprived of that “permanent Republican majority” he’s wasted the last 20 years trying to make happen. NOTHING, not even all the money his wife is stealing, will fill that void.

and what exactly is the “or else” implied in McConnell’s stance? Inquiring minds want to know.

Wait until the end of August, Nancy. We’ll know by then.

The virus is stopping the rallies, instead of their good judgement doing so. The sad part is, all the secret service agents and others getting sick, who didn’t need to.

Remember, these “woke” Republicans put him in office.
As your opening line says, a day late and a dollar short.

I have never forgotten. Another thing I remember: how the GOP folks who opposed Trump from then to now were ultimately too weak to stop him and needed US Dems to succeed to give them a leg to stand on. So when I hear the cockiness of this crowd in recent days, I see a crew that still has failed to learn their place on the food chain.

Bingo. This one, gotta tell you, really gets on my last nerve–we win, they get cover, they get up on their hind legs and holler. Let’s see how this goes once we win.

Exactly. Now let’s see just how long they stay woke shall we? Long enough for all of us to do the heavy lifting and bail out the damned country? While they grouse and complain at us? Crikey but they caused this. I guess the one good thing I can say here is that they are for now woke.

Less caused and more complicit, Carroll, as is the case with all true creatures of the status. The next few years are to be harder on them than they can imagine.

I live in Arizona and we don’t need Pence polluting our atmosphere with his presence.
