In other news, after canceling and un-canceling stimulus talks, Trump now says he wants bigger stimulus than what House Democrats have passed. That means Trump wants more stimulus than his own chief of staff, Mark Meadows, is offering to House Democrats. And Senate Republicans won't even agree to lower numbers.
These people are completely fucking stupid.
Meanwhile, and case in point, Axios reports that Trump reversed course on stimulus because Wall Street dropped and he didn't anticipate that because he is a giant moron. This is a recurring theme.
Finally, Europe just set a new one-day record for new coronavirus infections and so did the Midwestern United States.
Cases are rising the fastest in the upper Midwest, where the weather is the coldest, with Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin all reporting record increases in new cases so far in October. Illinois reported its biggest increase on Thursday since May 14.
And it’s not just more cases.
The percentage of tests coming back positive is rising and tops 20% in Iowa, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The U.S. recorded over 56,000 infections yesterday which means we're back to where we were in early August and it's really not even that cold yet.
