About 100,000 cases and about 1,500 deaths. 1.5% death rate. Just a couple days ago Matt Walsh was loudly talking about "Where are the thousands of deaths and when will the so-called scientists apologize?" I think we're only a couple days away now from the second thousand.
This isn't joy, I'm not happy that people are dying. It's the reality. It is what it is. Walsh thought he had a huge gotcha that March 25th arrived and we weren't up in the thousands yet, as had been forecast. Well, we'll be well into the thousands a week later.
Numbers are hard to process. I'm marking the progress of the disease by who has it on Twitter: people I've never seen retweeted onto my timeline, and then the family of people I follow. It's like watching a storm roll in. Like hearing the baying of a hunting beast.
The worse it gets, the worse Trump seems to get. On top of everything else, he's just... he's not built for this. On any level. Forget the stuff where he doesn't care about people and would try to enrich himself anyway. He's not equipped to handle a crisis that can't be spun.
He's breaking up, he's breaking down, and he's protected by a party that has systematically dismantled all the guardrails and brakes and safety valves that might be invoked, because they feared the situation where they might have to use them more than they feared this.
