In other news, Trump reportedly told wealthy donors at his Mar-a-Lago resort that the upside of the coronavirus is that it makes his xenopobic closed borders agenda more acceptable.

In related news, the Mar-a-Lago is undergoing a deep cleaning because the coronavirus was spread among the people present for Trump's remarks.

Finally, a federal judge cited the arrival of the virus in her decision blocking the Trump regime from kicking 700,000 people off food stamps.

Judge Beryl A. Howell, the chief of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, cited the coronavirus pandemic in her decision to suspend the rule from going into effect.

"Especially now, as a global pandemic poses widespread health risks, guaranteeing that government officials at both the federal and state levels have flexibility to address the nutritional needs of residents and ensure their well-being through programs like SNAP, is essential," Howell wrote.

It should not be lost that while a global pandemic is spreading and a recession seems all but certain, the Trump regime is still trying to cut the social safety net and the lawsuit to repeal all of Obamacare is ongoing.

    Mar-a-Lago comes off like stupid Westworld.
