In other news, Alabama, Florida, and North Carolina all posted new records for daily coronavirus deaths in the past 24 hours. New cases rose in 46 of 50 states.

Meanwhile, things are escalating quickly at the sight of the GOP's coming convention.

Jacksonville, host of the Republican convention, had just 1,011 confirmed cases on May 4. The convention was officially relocated there June 11, when it had 1,770 cases. As of Tuesday, the number of cases had climbed to 12,548, and the area had 525 Covid-19 patients in hospitals.

Finally, have you permanently lost your job to Trump's recession and the pandemic? Don't worry, Ivanka Trump has a pamphlet for you.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new White House-backed ad campaign aims to encourage people who are unemployed or unhappy in their jobs or careers to “find something new.”

The opening ad in the “Find Something New” campaign beginning Tuesday features ordinary people sharing their stories. A companion website provides links to training and other resources.

The initiative was swiftly criticized on social media, with some suggesting the effort is insensitive during a pandemic and the widespread unemployment it has caused. Others criticized the involvement of Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser.

    I’m old enough to remember when when Hillary said that coal miners would have to find something new due to sustainable technology replacing coal. To make matter worse (sarcasm) she stated that as a nation we need to *help* the workers train for a new career in preparation for it. **GASP**

    Do you recall that? Yeah…she was ripped apart for it….y’know, for suggesting “something new” and suggesting we should help them achieve that.

    Sweet Popsicle Christ this is frustrating to witness.

    • The amount of hypocrisy on the right defies belief or even the ability to quantify it.
