New York Times: Letís Call It Trumpvirus
New York Times ^ | February 26, 2020 | Gail Collins

Posted on 02/28/2020 7:03:23 PM PST by EdnaMode

So, our Coronavirus Czar is going to be … Mike Pence. Feeling more secure?

“I know full well the importance of presidential leadership,” the vice president said as soon as he was introduced in his new role.

Totally qualified. First criterion for every job in this administration is capacity for praising the gloriousness of our commander in chief.

Yeah, when you think of Mike Pence you maybe don’t think about Pandemic Fighter Supreme. But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana.

Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, “Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers.”

Our president had to be going crazy over a problem that involves both declining stock prices and germs. This is the guy, after all, who thinks shaking hands is “barbaric,” who is followed around by aides bearing sanitizer. During his press conference he told the story of a fever-ridden supporter who gave him a hug. Do you think it was an apocryphal fantasy? Either way, the idea has been haunting him forever.

Meanwhile, he’s come up with a totally new explanation for the stock market skid. It turns out investors were not frightened so much by the pandemic as the Democratic debate.

“I think the financial markets are very upset when they look at the Democrat candidates standing on that stage making fools out of themselves,” Trump told reporters.

Plus that virus thing is … not necessarily a big deal. What really “shocked” him, Trump said, was his discovery that “the flu in our country kills 25,000 people to 69,000 people a year.”

"But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana."

It's tangential, but you mock him for this, and at the same time you don't scoff at the Boy Mayor of a not very big city in Indiana being ready to be commander in chief?

TDS causes one to not see inconsistencies in one's many conflicting viewpoints.

Isnt going to stick. This thing has good names. The Wu Flu and Kung Flu are way way catchier/MEME worthy. No way this catches on. The left can not MEME. Hell, the left cant find their own asses with both hands and a map.

Right of the bat this is BS. Pence is not a “czar” He is a member of the administration.

The appointment of “czars” is usually a boondoggle anyway.
