How Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and America Get Away With It – The Intercept

Americas accountability problem is being laid bare. Once a global superpower, today jeers of failed state better describe our geriatric empire. Having survived impeachment, Americas acquitted president poorly navigates an unclear future as a pandemic rages and a recession looms, leaving hundreds of thousands dead in its global wake. An embattled population barrels toward a national election between two accused rapists and known liars: President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joseph Biden.

Biden, accused of sexual assault by one woman, has all but secured the Democratic nomination, gearing up for a general election against Trump, who faces at least 25 sexual misconduct allegations that range in criminal severity. Both men deny all the allegations.

Bidens accuser, Tara Reade, was one of eight women who registered complaints of inappropriate touching in April of last year before Biden ever jumped into the presidential race. As Biden appeared likely to be the Democratic nominee, Reade came forward in late March and told her story about her former boss. In an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, Reade said Biden penetrated her vagina with his fingers. She alleges the incident occurred in 1993, while she was an aide in his Senate office. What Reade describes is rape, according to the Department of Justices own definition. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Reade has called on Biden to end his presidential bid and step forward and be held accountable.

Now Reade, not Biden, is on trial in the American media landscape. Democrats, the party of believe women, are changing their tune, terrified at the prospect of another four years of a Trump presidency. After all, 2016 proved that lugging a litany of sexual assault and harassment accusations does not guarantee an electoral loss. Before the election, at least four women were on record accusing Trump of sexual misconduct. American flags aloft, his fanatical base laughed along with the presidential candidate as he called his accusers liars and implied that they werent attractive enough for him to assault. When youre a star, they let you do it, Trump said on the infamous Access Hollywood recording. Grab em by the pussy. You can do anything.This unearthed admission did not cost him the election either.

If Democrats continue to do nothing, Reades accusation should prove that sexual misconduct allegations in either party are nothing more than a mild political inconvenience.

The lack of impetus to replace Biden speaks to how Washington, D.C., has long neglected creating a culture of accountability. Some of the darkest chapters of U.S. history have been classified away. Our villainous past remains unprosecuted as bipartisan bombs continue falling. Americas lack of understanding wrongdoing enables figures who should have atoned in order for the country to progress to instead linger in political relevance.

If you supervised torture and destroyed evidence, like Gina Haspel, you can still get promoted. If youre a war criminal, like George W. Bush, you can be rehabilitated. If youre a judge, credibly accused of sexual conduct, like Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh, you, too, can become a Supreme Court justice.

Now, high-profile Democratic endorsements for Biden signal that a quest for the truth and a reckoning for the allegations against him will never come.

I think thats really whats corrosive about this moment, is this idea that you can try to shred Tara Reades credibility and stick up for Joe Biden and still say that you have any kind of commitment to ending sexual violence, that you have any kind of commitment to womens rights, Melissa Gira Grant, a staff writer at the New Republic, explained on Intercepted. I dont think you get to have it both ways.

The name Lucy Flores may be all but forgotten in an exhausting year of political reporting. Flores was the first to come forward and register publicly that an encounter with Biden made her deeply uncomfortable. In a viral essay, Flores described how, in 2015, then-Vice President Biden made her feel uneasy, gross, and confused as she campaigned for lieutenant governor in Nevada.

I feel him come up close behind me, and thats when he leans in and he lingers around my head, Flores recounted on Intercepted. I hear him kind of inhale. And then he proceeds to plant this low kiss on the top of my head. (Biden denied that he had acted inappropriately toward Flores.)

Seven more women came forward with similar stories of Bidens manner of unwanted, inappropriate touching. Descriptions told of how his hands intimately lingered on everything from the womens necks, shoulders, backs, or thighs. Some say his forehead pressed against theirs. Noses so close that they rubbed together. Breathing in the smell of hair. Kissing the back of the head.

The bottom line with that kind of behavior is entitlement.

The bottom line with that kind of behavior is entitlement, Gira Grant explained. Both entitlement to someones physical body, but then also entitlement to characterize what happened through whatever lens you have that allows you to continue that behavior.

Flores was precise in calling out the inequality inherent in how womens bodies were assumed to be touchable, especially by powerful men. Most people acknowledge that men dont usually kiss, smell, rub noses with, place their hands on the thighs of, or touch foreheads with random women they dont know, Flores opined in the New York Times. Yet some men do, especially powerful men, who are protected by privilege and a crew of self-interested enablers who dont want to lose their access to power by calling out the obvious.

When allegations of inappropriate kissing and touching surfaced against Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., from seven accusers, dozens of his Democratic Senate colleagues quickly called for his resignation. With a professed zero-tolerance position for any sexual misconduct, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., led the charge. Within weeks, Franken took the incredibly rare step of resigning from his Senate seat.

Biden, apparently lacking a particularly damning enough photograph of misconduct, has been given a pass. And Gillibrand, despite Reades allegation, has maintained her support and endorsement of Biden. Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez has dismissed the accusations. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also supports Biden. A day after Business Insiders investigation further corroborated Reades story, Hillary Clinton, too, threw in her high-profile endorsement of Biden.

For Flores, Bidens conduct that day was disqualifying. But, for the Democratic establishment, perhaps fearing both more years of Trump and a Bernie Sanders presidency, Bidens conduct has been accepted. His character has been troublingly defended by colleagues especially by women eyeing a vice presidential nomination.

As complaints from women mounted, Biden told reporterslast year, Im not sorry for any of my intentions. Im not sorry for anything that I have ever done. Ive never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman. With this, Biden revealed an inability to comprehend culpability.

This is what hes known for, Flores told Intercepted. He is not known for voluntarily or willingly acknowledging that he has made mistakes in the past, whether its around his position on the Hyde Amendment, whether it was around how he mishandled the Clarence Thomas hearings, school busing and segregationist policies I mean, the list is pretty long.

Bidens record is long and troubling. Some voters, myself included, are struggling with a moral debate in response to the electoral options before us. We face an impossible choice and feel disgust at being put in this position.

Its a mind-fuck. Gira Grant said, about the inevitable choice between Trump and Biden. I want to appreciate how that feels and how uncomfortable that is. I think its just, like, ripping something back about our culture and our politics and revealing it to us. I dont think its necessarily new.

I think its just, like, ripping something back about our culture and our politics and revealing it to us. I dont think its necessarily new.

Yet it isnt surprising. Bidens inability to admit fault he has said, I am not sorry for anything I have ever done simply shows that he is a byproduct of an institution of impunity. America, too, doesnt do apologies. Reparations for black people and native people are nowhere in sight. We didnt prosecute torture and we wont prosecute war crimes. The cancer at the core of this nation is one of fundamental injustice, hidden beneath platitudes of freedom, liberty, and equality for all. To remove Biden would be to indict American exceptionalism itself.

Liberals like Biden, who believe that Americas divisions can be healed by a new president, dont see this country as built on exploitation. To understand how we heal, we have to view America through the painful lens of wrongs committed. Accountability must be viewed as a feminist issue, especially in a nationthatwove oppression into every fiber of its flag.

America should live in shame until we admit fault, recognize hurt, and ask for forgiveness. Joe Biden can go first.

11 US Secret Service agents test positive for the coronavirus – Business Insider – Business Insider

Eleven members of the US Secret Service have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Thursday evening, according to Yahoo News.

Documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seen by Yahoo News, revealed that the agency has 11 active coronavirus cases and an additional 60 employees who are reportedly self-quarantining. On top of this, another 23 members have already recovered from COVID-19, the diseases caused by the coronavirus.

It is not known whether the employees who tested positive for the coronavirus worked at the White House or if they had recent close contact with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

Both Trump and Pence get tested for the disease regularly but have not tested positive so far. However, Trump said this week that he would switch from having weekly to daily tests following the new cases, according to The Hill.

Justin Whelan, a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Yahoo News that the agency is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

"To protect the privacy of our employee's health information and for operational security, the Secret Service is not releasing how many of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19, nor how many of its employees were, or currently are, quarantined," Whelan added.

The news comes as President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that Mike Pence's press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus. Miller, who is the wife of Stephen Miller Trump's senior adviser, and primary speechwriter confirmed her diagnosis with NBC News, adding that she was asymptomatic.

Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has also tested positive for the coronavirus, CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported.

This follows a US Navy member who serves as one of Trump's valets who tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday, according to CNN.

The string of recent diagnoses in the White House raises concerns about the president's possible exposure to the virus, which has since infected more than 1.3 million people in the US, according to Worldometer.

Trump has previously said that he's "not worried" about getting infected and has notably been seen not wearing a face mask at recent meetings and public appearances, despite the advice on face coverings by the CDC.

Trump’s coronavirus leadership has been ‘awful’ for the US and the world, US entrepreneur says – CNBC

U.S. President Donald Trump suddenly departs after a 22-minute coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak task force briefing without answering any questions at the White House in Washington, April 24, 2020.

Jonathan Ernst | Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump's management of the Covid-19 pandemic has been "awful," according to telecoms entrepreneur David McCourt.

The president has come under fire for using daily coronavirus press briefings to tout his own successes, rather than inform the public, and for spreading misinformation about the virus.

McCourt, founder and CEO of Granahan McCourt Capital, said that while his business had benefited from some of President Trump's policies, no benefit to entrepreneurs "would be worth the price of his leadership."

"I just think it has been awful, in my personal opinion, for the country and for the world. It has not been clear, it hasn't been backed up by science, he is not consistent, he doesn't seem to be empathetic," McCourt told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe."

The White House was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.

As of Monday morning, the U.S. remains the most impacted country in the world from Covid-19, with more than 965,000 confirmed cases and more than 54,800 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The president walked out of Friday's daily briefing and launched a series of attacks against the press on Twitter for asking "hostile questions" and for reporting on his handling of the virus.

Trump then cancelled both briefings over the weekend, claiming that they were "not worth the time and effort," and it is unclear whether he will attend on Monday.

The latest blow up between Trump and the press came after the president appeared to speculate over whether injecting disinfectant would cure the coronavirus. In response, Trump said he was "asking a question sarcastically."

"You want to be empathetic to those you are leading (but) he just doesn't seem to get it, from my optic anyway. I just think it has been terrible," McCourt added.

Donald Trumps China Nightmare Is Coming True For The U.S. Dollar – Forbes

U.S. president Donald Trump's power struggle with China was perhaps the defining feature of his presidency, until the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic struck.

The pandemicand subsequent lockdownscrashed global markets and pushed investors around the world toward the safety of the almighty dollar.

But the U.S. dollar's days as the world's reserve currency could be numbered, with some of the biggest ever changes to government-backed central bank currencies loomingand China leading the field.

U.S. president Donald Trump has been stuck in a worsening trade war with China for much of his ... [+] presidency--if he wins a second term it could be remembered as a war Trump lost.

Casual discussions around central bank digital currencies, sometimes called CBDCs, have been going on for the last few years.

Digital currencies would work just like regular coins and notes issued by central banks but exist entirely online. Instead of printing or minting currency, the central banks would issue digital dollars via online accountssimilar to the commercial banking apps that have exploded in popularity in recent years.

Employers could, theoretically, pay directly into these government-run accounts and both online and physical stores could accept payment from them. Foreign exchange could also be handled through them, easing the flow of international trade.

The long-running debate among central bankers over the need for digital currencies was blown wide open last year by news of Facebook's libra projectsomething that almost saw the social media giant elevate itself to (or even above) central bank status as an issuer of the first global currency.

World leaders and regulators slapped Facebook back down.

"We have only one real currency in the U.S.A., and it is stronger than ever, both dependable and reliable," Trump said last year in a Twitter tirade against Facebook's libra, as well as bitcoin and cryptocurrenciesscarce digital assets that were the inspiration for libra.

"[The dollar] is by far the most dominant currency anywhere in the world, and it will always stay that way."

Libra is expected to launch later this year, though somewhat reduced from Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg's original vision.

Some U.S. lawmakers have proposed the creation of digital dollars and so-called FedAccounts as part of stimulus bills designed to offset the economic damage wrought by coronavirus-induced lockdowns.

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook's proposed cryptocurrency libra last ... [+] year.

These have so far been excluded from final bills and may never get through a divided Congressperhaps leaving Facebook's libra as a defacto digital dollar.

"The big battle for global financial supremacy could be between the digital yuan and Facebook's libra dollar, a digital version of the U.S. dollar," said financial author and trading veteran Glen Goodman, who made a name for himself by successfully navigating stock markets during the 2008 global financial crisis and has been closely following the development of central bank digital currencies.

"Both of these currencies may be launched as soon as this year and will make it quicker, cheaper and more efficient to buy, sell or transfer money from place to place. China will pull out all the stops to convince international trading partners to switch from the dollar to their new currency. If they manage to lure enough users, the U.S. dollar could be in deep trouble."

Battle lines are now being drawn but the war could be measured in decades and not years.

"Given the risks inherent to such a transformation, China will phase in the CBDC very gradually," journalists at the widely-respected Economist newspaper wrote this week, pointing to analysis from Citic Securities that estimates it will take "several years for the digital yuan to replace just about 10% of all physical cash in China."

Donald Trump's first term as U.S. president may have been marked by his trade war with China; but if he wins a second he could go down in history as the president that saw the U.S. dollar fall from grace.

What Donald Trump Could Learn from Herbert Hoover – POLITICO

Over the course of two decades and change, the RFC plowed tens of billions into banks to restart lending, manufacturing firms to build essential supplies, utilities to keep services afloat, exporters to build new supply chains and even cities to keep their teachers on the payroll. At one point, it was the single largest investor in the U.S. economy.

Though controversial, it was hugely successful in what it aimed to do. And not just because of its structure and policies, but because of its bipartisan political origins, and how it brought Republicans and Democrats closer together in a time of crisis.

Today, a big hurdle for Democrats considering options for economic relief is whether they can trust President Donald Trump to set up a new RFC-type agency that would dole out billions of dollars to the private sector and other agencies competently and noncorruptly. And from a purely electoral perspective, Democrats will try to balance the real need to help people and firms now, with the risk that doing so helps Trump win reelection.

As such, a lot of the lessons of the RFC startup are for Democrats, whose signoff will be needed for any new government investment body. That said, both parties can learn something from the RFC experience, including practical advice on how to do big industrial policywhether in a 2020 Biden administration or a 2024 Rubio one.

Here are three lessons for todays politicians.

Though it is today associated with Franklin Delano Roosevelts New Deal, the RFC was actually launched in 1932, President Herbert Hoovers last year in office. It attracted support from progressives and centrists among Democrats in Congress, granting enormous powers to a slow-moving conservative president in an election year in which he was the incumbent.

Hoover was not beloved by Democrats. His dithering response to the Great Depression and his refusal to heed Congress call to build a social safety net riled progressives. Similar to todays balance of power, the 1930 midterms had seen Republicans narrowly retain the Senate and Democrats take back control of the House of Representatives (after 16 years in the wilderness). And as today, some Democrats who wanted relief for their constituents were nonetheless wary of letting Hoover direct it, fearing he would simply dole out money to big banks and supporters.

In his definitive history, James Stuart Olson describes Hoover as reluctant to move forward with the RFCoriginally proposed to him by bankers in October 1931as a way to help restart the economy. After dragging his feet for two months and hoping private markets would fix themselves, he finally submitted legislation in December that would have lending operations overseen by a board composed of his Treasury secretary, his farm loan head, the Federal Reserve chairman he had nominated, and two other Republicans.

Democrats were having none of it. Carter Glass, the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee (the seat held by Sherrod Brown today) demanded that the board seats be expanded to seven and that three of them be Democrats. After Hoover signed the RFC Act on January 22, 1932, House Speaker John Nance Garner (in the position Nancy Pelosi occupies today) demanded businessman and Democratic activist Jesse Jones be one of the Democrats on the RFC boardand Hoover agreed. Over the next year, Jones would play a leading role in keeping the RFC focused on the needs of Main Street over Wall Street, fighting with a Fed chair who wanted the opposite.

Democrats were right then and would be right today to demand a voice on the board. In return, Republicans pulled legislative victory from the jaws of defeat and showed that they werent totally incapable of governing.

Just fixing the original bill was not enough. Over the course of 1932, Democrats waged a relentless inside-outside strategy to simultaneously force the RFC to be more aggressive in fighting the crisis, while highlighting all the ways that Hoovers cautiousness was making matters worse. On the inside, Congress engaged in constant oversight of the RFCs operations, especially when it looked like resources were being doled out to the presidents political allies. Outside, on the campaign trail, candidate Roosevelt blasted the RFC, calling it a sop to bankers and corporations that ignored the needs of the common man.

This sustained pressure campaign enabled Democrats to push their agenda still further. In May, Senate Minority Leader Joseph Robinson (the Chuck Schumer of his day) pushed Hoover to use the RFC to fund public works programs. By July, Hoover had given in and signed another major stimulus law. And, frustrated that the RFC was holding back its full firepower under its majority Republican board as the election neared, Hoover kicked out its chairman and gave Democrats the majority.

Herein lies a lesson for Trump. From the vantage point of winter and spring, he might see fellow Republicans as his natural allies and distrust Democrats intentions. But as the weeks click along and programs continue to be botched, self-interest can kick in: A more competent Democratic-driven response that he can at least claim partial credit for is better than a fumbling one no one wants to be associated with.

Democrats wanted far more relief spending than the Hoover administration was willing to give or the RFC felt it could prudently unleash into the economy. But they were able to get many of the functions they wanted set up in small offices.

Accepting those half-measures turned out to be a smart move: After Roosevelt came into office, there were already an infrastructure and experienced personnel in place to rapidly scale up into full-blown RFC divisions and spinoff agencies. A division inadequately funding infrastructure projects in 1932 became the standalone Public Works Administration in June 1933. A program aiding states and local governments under Hoover became the Federal Emergency Relief Administration under Roosevelt. An agricultural loans unit became the Commodity Credit Corporationa body that exists to this day and that the Trump administration has used extensively. And Jesse Jones went from being a mere member of the RFC board to its chair in May 1933. He would preside over the federal governments planning apparatus for the next 12 years, appointing, training and advancing the careers of countless New Dealers.

Indeed, the RFC was so successful that its infrastructure would be tapped through the 1950s to serve an ever-proliferating number of policy goals. Through practice, the RFCand the other agencies that used it as a funding sourcegot good at doing things we today think government wouldnt be able to pull off, such as ushering in whole new industries like synthetic rubber and subsidizing upstart competitors to take on Alcoas aluminum monopoly. And these tasks became exceedingly radical, such as firing inept management at private firms and putting in their own people. Hoover had inaugurated the RFC with many constraints on its activities, requiring high interest rates so that it couldnt compete with private banks. But by the time World War II came around, the RFC was being used to structurally change the entire private sector.

And thats part of what led to its eventual demise. Over time, the agency became increasingly disliked by the right. After Republicans rode Dwight D. Eisenhowers presidential coattails to a congressional majority in the 1952 elections, they abolished the RFC, relocating its few remaining functions to other agencies like the Small Business Administration, servicing a constituency the party saw as more receptive to their brand of politics.

Still, the RFCs bipartisan roots show that Democrats and Republicans can find common ground in eras of economic crisis.

Thats not to say we could exactly replicate the RFC experience, in part because while there are some similarities between 1932 and 2020, there are also important differences. 1932s crisis was caused by a cratering of economic demand by the unemployed, while 2020s is in the first instance about a pandemic-caused supply shock. Back then, the parties had factions like the Progressive Republicanselected officials like Wisconsins Robert La Follettewho echoed the political economy perspectives of many Democrats. Today, there are only a few Senate Republicans who bolt from party orthodoxy on limited government. Moreover, Hooverfor all his ideological aversion to economic planningwas universally acknowledged as an expert in disaster management, having led food relief efforts during and after World War I. Whatever Trumps manifold claims to expertise, few take them seriously.

In short, Congress is right to worry about how much to trust Trump with new powers. But history shows that with persistence, strategy and a willingness to make the right kinds of compromises, Democrats and Republicans could use the political fights of the next few months as a springboard for a governing strategy for the next eight yearsand build a more resilient economy in the process.

Like You, Donald Trump Wants a Break on His Rent – Mother Jones

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.

Like many hotels in America, Donald Trumps luxury downtown DC hotel has taken a massive hit from the COVID-19 pandemic and is asking its landlord for a break on its monthly rent. But this particular property is unique in that the landlord takes its orders from the president himself.

The Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, operates out of a federally owned property, an old post office building just blocks from the White House. In 2013, the Trump Organization signed a lease to operate a hotel in the building and promised to pay at least $3 million a year in rent. When Trump took office, he refused to sell or give up control of his businesses; he simply declared that his two adult sons and some company executives would take charge of the daily operations. The hotel has been a bright spot in Trumps portfolio during his presidency, if not always as a business then at least as a symbol. Many of his properties have seen declines in revenue, but the DC hotel, which opened in 2016, just days before the election, injected tens of millions of dollars of new revenue into the Trump Organization and has become a popular hangout for lobbyists and foreign officials seeking to get Trumps attention. The president himself dines at the steakhouse in the hotels lobby on a regular basis.

But for all the attention the hotel has gotten, in the months before the pandemic began spreading, it reportedly had an occupancy rate of around 57 percent, less than what hotel business experts say is needed to turn a profit, and the Trumps had begun shopping around their 60-year lease on the property. All that suggests that the hotel was not as profitable as it might appear. The hotel has remained open through the pandemic, unlike most other luxury hotels in DC, but with an occupancy of about 2 percent, according to an official with the hotel workers union.

That, apparently, is not cutting it. TheNew York Times reported on Tuesday that the Trump Organization has approached the General Services Administration (GSA), the federal agency that operates as landlord for the Trump hotel and other government-owned properties, about some kind of break on the rent. The Trump Organization confirmed to theTimes that they had done so:

The Trump Organization is current on its rent, according to Eric Trump, the presidents son, but he confirmed that the company had opened a conversation about possible delays in future monthly payments.

The younger Mr. Trump said the company was asking the G.S.A. for any relief that it might be granting other federal tenants. The president still owns the company, but his eldest sons run the day-to-day operations.

Just treat us the same, Eric Trump in a statement on Tuesday. Whatever that may be is fine.

But will it be fine? TheTimes also reported that the Trump Organization has asked Palm Beach County in Florida for a break on its rent for property it leases from the county for a golf courseand that county officials are fretting that if they refuse to give the Trumps a break, they may be shorted on federal pandemic aid.

The decision will be up to the GSA, but agency officials all ultimately work for Trump. The kind of conflict of interest could have been avoided. In the lease that Trump signed in 2013, a clause prohibited federal office holders from participating in the arrangement. But after he had already taken office, the GSA determined that it did not apply to Trump, because he wasnt a federal office holder when he signed the deal. Steven Schooner, a law professor at George Washington University who specializes in government contracting and who has long been a critic of the GSAs decision not to apply the conflict-of-interest rule to Trump, says this is the scenario the rule was designed to prevent.

Under no circumstances should GSA reduce the rent, Schooner said. Any reasonable person would worry about the undue pressures and the inherent risk of favoritism that the government might show to such a well-connected contractor.

What Would Donald Trump Do if Kim Jong-un Died? – The National Interest

How would Trump respond to the death of Kim Jong-un?

Is Kim Jong-un gravely ill? Was he close to death at any point over the past few weeks? And what would happen inside North Korea if its Supreme Leader dies without having laid the groundwork for an orderly succession?

As the past week has shown, these are difficult questions to answer from the vantage point of the United States. Without access to insider knowledge, the best that most US-based analysts can do is sketch out a range of scenarios that could feasibly come to pass.

Of course, the US government does not enjoy the luxury of merely having to know what might happen in the event of an unexpected crisis such as Kims rumored debilitation. Officials must also plan for what the United States will do in response to rapidly moving events. Over the past few weeks, the US intelligence community and the State Departments corps of Korea experts have undoubtedly been working hard to put together information on both fronts: What has been going on in North Korea? And how should the United States prepare itself to act?

In more normal times, Americans could be confident that their president was handling a potential crisis in North Korea by marshalling this expert advice. But these are not normal times, and Trump is not a normal president. Trump has no patience for rigorous policymaking processes, and often relies upon advisers who have no specialist knowledge his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, for example. This makes it difficult to predict what the President would do in response to tumultuous developments in Pyongyang.

Would Trump pursue a wait and see approach while events in Pyongyang played out? Would he extend the hand of friendship to whoever emerged as Kims successor as Supreme Leader? Would he try to interfere in North Korean affairs, perhaps by appearing to favor one contender for power over another? Might the President even listen to the counsel of those who still clamor for military action against the regime? With Trump in charge, none of these options can be safely ruled out.

What makes Trump so difficult to predict is that he is motivated primarily by short-term political advantage. He has styled himself as a potential peacemaker on the Korean Peninsula for the past two years, but it should not be forgotten that he began his presidency by threatening fire and fury against Pyongyang. To put it bluntly, Trump will pursue any foreign policy that he believes will serve him well in the moment. How he would read a crisis in Pyongyang is anyones guess.

When Kim Jong-il died in 2011, the Obama administration made a conscious choice to keep public pronouncements to a minimum. All that Obama tried to convey was a message of reassurance to US allies in the region. It was left to former President Jimmy Carter (almost certainly acting with the approval of Obamas team) to send a message of condolences to North Korea, wishing success to the newly anointed Kim Jong-un. This was the model of a measured response, calibrated to avoid making a perilous situation worse. It would be comforting to believe that Trump would follow a similar path if faced with the untimely death of another North Korean leader.

Alas, there is little reason to believe that Trump would act or tweet with such restraint and forethought. The irony is that foreign observers are used to attributing North Koreas behavior to the eccentricity of its leaders. But if anything, the broad contours of North Korean foreign policy are the product of structural conditions, not the caprices of those in charge. The same cannot be said of the United States under President Trump.

Donald Trump Is Living Groundhog Day in Reverseand We’re All Stuck in His Nightmare – The Daily Beast

This week the president went from peddling deadly hydroxychloroquine as a game changer to promoting the idea of bleach taken internally as a cure. It will also kill you, but more quickly.

The next day, Trump tells us he was being sarcastic, as his worst remarks, like roughing up protesters, loving Wikileaks, wanting to stay in office for 10 years, all are when challenged. For those who dont process irony, Lysol issued an immediate warning not to ingest its productin case the skull and crossbones on the container isnt enough.

As for the phony cure, Trump was unapologetic. Obviously there have been some very good reports and perhaps this ones not a good reportbut well be looking at it.

Thats where we are, four months into a pandemic everyone but the president saw coming, Trump is acting out the movie Groundhog Day in reverse. Instead of learning and growing like Bill Murrays Phil Connors, Trump is getting dumber and shrinking before our eyes. In rushing to end restrictions, Trumps repeating the mistakes he made during the lost weeks of winter when, stuck in a protective crouch, he cost the country lives.

Hes in denial again as he races to open businesses, essential and not, by May 1, in hopes of resurrecting the Dow (buy on the dip!), lowering unemployment, raising his poll numbers, and throwing open the doors to his shuttered hotel down Pennsylvania Avenuethe one his sons are hoping the federal government will give a break. If the president moves fast enough, it could be in time for his wealthy supporters to spend their outsized winnings from the stimulus bill on $25 craft cocktails.

Theres another victim of the hydroxychloroquine infomercial in addition to the 28 percent of 396 veterans treated with hydroxychloroquine whose hearts failed, as opposed to the 11 percent untreated who did not. Its the country, desperate for a vaccine. For not diverting precious time and resources to legitimizing Trumps game changer, Dr. Rick Bright, the highly experienced vaccine developer running the agency racing to find one, was removed from his job.

Expertise is worthless, especially if it clashes with revenge in this White House, as we learned this week from reporting that revealed Trumps first director of the pandemic task force had no relevant experience whatsoever. He was a breeder of Labradoodles.

The bleach gambit may be the moment when the presidents followers finally realize theyre smarter and mentally healthier than he is. The country has devolved into two camps. On one side are stir crazy people with chapped hands and a few extra pounds; theyre drinking at all hours, and theyre fuzzy on what time it is.

Still by more than 80 percent, they agree with experts that the better path is to stay home for now. Theyre deeply worried about the economy but also believe that to bring back 26 million lost jobs, the virus must first be contained.

The other group is taking its cues from the president, who feels its high time to get our beautiful economy, the likes of which no one has ever seen before, back on track. Hes joined by a number of governors from GOP states, like Georgias Brian Kemp, overenthusiastic even by Trumps loose standards, but enabled by him. Kemp freed his citizens as of Friday to roll a four-bagger, sit for a tattoo, or get a blow-dry even if it means risking that the next months appointment might be in the basement of a funeral home.

Then theres the voluble Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, who believes if gamblers all take long showers before hitting the slots, the Strip will light up again. She offered her constituents as a control group to see if her strategy works. Amplifying all is 20 percent of the citizenry, great people who like Trump, demonstrating in full Charlottesville regalia, and who want to be liberated immediately.

Of course, the latter group has more sway with the president. And now it has legal backup. Trumps Attorney General Bill Barr, with the largest law firm in the country on retainer, told radio host Hugh Hewitt that if his jawboning against house arrest wasnt successful, he would file in favor of plaintiffs suing to have restrictions lifted.

Trump gets more antic by the day, apropos of nothing squeezing in some campaigning against Joe Biden, the sleepy guy in the basement, and slamming the most popular governor in the country, Marylands Larry Hogan, for stupidly buying testing materials from South Korea.

He relishes taking questions for the thrill of cutting off and insulting reporters, particularly women, whom he tells dont talk to me, lower your voice, and relax. He lectures them about doctors never seeing anything like his handling of the virus and sulks that if he provided 325 million tests, his antagonists would ask for more.

The press is an easier enemy to quell than the virus. In a piece of North Korean theater, Trump summoned his rarely seen director of the Center for Disease Control, Dr. Robert Redfield, to the podium to recant a quote in The Washington Post warning that opening early would result in a second and more difficult wave of cases in the fall. Redfield went to the microphone but couldnt, confirming that he was quoted accurately. Watch for him to be banished like Dr. Bright.

One job thats safe is Dr. Deborah Birx, as long as shes willing to sit placidly when Trump turns to her for approval of his sarcastic life-hack using bleach and UV rays. When asked how Kemp could justify opening up massage parlors, Dr. Birx answered he would be creative. How about I cant think of any, it cant be done? White lies are black when lives are at stake. Im waiting for her riffMonday on how a waitress is going to hurl a burger to a table six feet away.

Trump obviously prefers Dr. Birxs musical stylings to Faucis Brooklyn truth. In a surprising departure, Trump broke with Fauci publicly for the first time this week over his requirement for much higher testing before a phased re-entry. If he said that, I dont agree, Trump sniffed about a quote in Time magazine, which he pretends to have been on the cover of many times.

If only Trump were a neurotic and believed everything was his fault, instead of being a narcissist who thinks its all someone elses.

He then repeated his tired excuse that weve done more testing than every other nation combined, which is untrue but even if it were true would be irrelevant, like the random numbers and products he recites to justify holding a briefing. In fact, per capita, the U.S. is fifth in testing, only slightly higher than Venezuela. As for whether the virus will return, Fauci and Trump go back and forth like an old couple arguing over the thermostat: We will have coronavirus in the fall, I am convinced of that (Dr. Fauci). It may never come back (Dr. Trump).

For now, Trump knows it would be risky to highlight disagreements between them. Trump has his MAGA hats, but Fauci has cupcakes with his face on them and an 80 percent approval rating in a recent Fox poll. After this week, less than half of Republicans say that have a lot of trust in Trumps information on the pandemic and 22 percent say they have little or no trust, according to an AP-NORC poll.

If only Trump were a neurotic and believed everything was his fault, instead of being a narcissist who thinks its all someone elses. No one appreciates that hes the king of ventilators and a hero for closing down travel from China, although with loopholes, 40,000 people flew in. So if he golfed and held rallies until March, he routinely accuses Speaker Nancy Pelosi of worse by holding events in Chinatown and proposing a parade that would violate Californias lockdown.

That would be lie 23,001. Back on Feb. 24, she tweeted out a brief video making fortune cookies with a constituent in a neighborhood which had no cases then or now. She mentioned a parade that happened two weeks earlier, not one to come.

It took Phil Connors a long time to become a decent guy, to build an ice sculpture, play the piano like Mozart, and realize thatonly love could save him. We dont have the luxury of time. Its running out, and Trump isnt improving.

Donald Trumps Pathetic COVID-19 Response Is Killing Thousands of People – Vanity Fair

The first responders arrived 10 minutes after I called 911, suited head to toe in the white hazmat gear you see in disaster films. One of them came into the house and helped my husband down the stairs, shouting down to another EMT that he didnt think theyd need a BiPAP. I made a mental note to ask my doctor-cousin what a BiPAP was and whether it was good or bad that Josh didnt need one.

I love you, I yelled through the screen door as they wheeled Josh on a stretcher toward the ambulance. Our six-year-old son, AJ, stood in the foyer, watching the whole scene unfold with wide-eyed wonder: Who were these guys? And why were they wearing space suits? A scary thought crept into my mind, but I quickly told my brain to shut up. Were not going there. Of course hell survive this. I grabbed my sons hand as the ambulance sped off to the Northwell Health Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, New York, siren blaring. He didnt understand why I was crying.

If you told me on November 9, 2016, that in fewer than four years wed be hiding in our homes, terrified, fighting for our lives as society shut down around us, the only thing that would surprise me was that it didnt happen sooner. Whether it was a terrorist attack, an economic disaster, war, a global pandemic, or some combination of the above, I always knew that Donald Trump was beyond ill-equipped to handle a crisis, and that ifor whenone showed up, it would be an unmitigated catastrophe. This is why I cried after the 2016 election. This is why I still cant talk to people who didnt vote because they thought Hillary Clinton, the most qualified candidate to ever run for president, would have been just as bad. The situation in which America now finds itself is simultaneously shocking and totally inevitable, the Chaos Candidacy taken to its logical conclusion.

On March 15, when New York City schools were ordered closed, we packed up our car with food and over-the-counter medications and drove out to my parents unoccupied home on Long Island, grateful for a place to ride out the quarantine, not yet realizing that a 120-nanometer passenger had hitched a ride with us. Within daysonly two weeks after Trump told the American people that only 15 people in the U.S. had the coronavirus, and that within a couple of days [the number] is going to be down to close to zeromy otherwise healthy, 45-year-old husband was admitted to the ICU with a serious case of bilateral pneumonia, likely due to COVID-19. We suspected that he picked up the virus while traveling for work to Seattle, Sacramento, and Los Angeles in late February and early March, while our federal government publicly downplayed the severity of the crisis. Just stay calm, Trump had said on March 10. It will go away.

Its easier to be furious than scared, so I let the rage wash over me. I marinated in it. This was avoidable.

The week before Josh was hospitalized, as he isolated in an upstairs bedroom coughing, barely eating, and running a 103 fever, I tried desperately to get both of us tested. After all, Trump had told us on March 7 that anyone who wants a test can get a test. But like most things this president says, it was a lie. What he meant was that anybody who is a celebrity got a test. As a parade of NBA players, actors, and TV hosts came forward with the ultimate humblebrag of 2020that they had tested positive for COVID-19I turned to Twitter to express my outrage about the Kafkaesque hurdles I was experiencing.
