Trump and his acolytes

With help, I’ve figured out why Trump keeps giving dubious assurances on coronavirus:

So in Donald Trump’s microscopic constellation of values (i.e., How will this make me look?”) there’s no real downside in giving false assurances. Collateral damage,” otherwise known as dead Americans,” don’t count.

From David French on the same podcast:

Trumpistas have been expanding the definition of Russia hoax” to include things that the Trump campaign and hangers-on actually, demonstrably did:

Russia hoax. All of them.

And if you mention them on Twitter, you’ll get gang-tackled for spreading the Russia hoax.”
