National Security Advisors seem snakebit in Trump world. Either they don’t last very long, or they come down with COVID-19. At least the current one, Robert O’Brien has.
Huge deal. President Trump's national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, has tested positive for coronavirus, confirming @JenniferJJacobs scoop. O'Brien recently returned from Europe, where he and his top deputy met with officials from the U.K., France, Germany and Italy.

The image above this piece was taken in London — a people with Boris Johnson in charge and yet they still can laugh at us. And these signs and posters have become commonplace in Europe and other countries. We are the laughing stock of the entire world. Our diplomatic relationships are eroding swiftly. China closed one of our consulates recently after it became outraged that the Trump administration ordered the Houston consulate closed and took the unprecedented step of harboring a Chinese national who is wanted by the FBI in connection with the theft of intellectual property. One of their officials said, “Sheltering a defendant in a criminal case by using the diplomatic immunity of a consular building, if true, is really extraordinary.”
These are the signs of the times, literally and figuratively and it’s surprising we haven’t seen more. We are totally disgraced in the world right now and the disgrace does not lie solely with Donald Trump, by any means. He’s just a loud mouth game show host. He doesn’t know how government works. But McConnell and Graham and all the other Trump enablers in the Senate do know. And it’s pretty obvious that their attitude is, “I got mine, you worry.” They seem to be just fine with letting America go to Hell on their watch.
I hope there is a blue tsunami, because it’s going to take a political event of tsunami proportions to wash clean the excrement in our nation’s capitol.
