On the lighter side of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Trump met with Brazil's dictator a few days ago along with other officials from the dictator's administration--one of whom has tested positive for the virus. Trump must be scared to death!
Why would he be scared. He and the others will get a big fat pension whereas you will get??????????He's in a high risk group. But I'd be willing to bet he's more scared of bad polling numbers, Nancy Pelosi, and the possibility that his next bucket of KFC won't be hot enough.

I'll get the virus and a big fat medical bill.
On another related topic, I think it's sad that it takes a global pandemic to get the American media to stop it's nonsense and here's why: this morning one of the first news stories I saw was that Tom Hanks has tested positive. Oh no! Say it isn't so! Not Tom Hanks!!!
To the media's credit, however, I have not yet seen that story repeated. It's just one of many. Now, if this had been a normal newsday, and Mr. Hanks had fallen and chipped a tooth or something, that's all we'd hear for weeks. But it seems to have slipped through the cracks because there are more important things to report.
On the other hand, several posts on Facebook have reported that people who have died from the virus are apparently rising from the dead to infect the living. A pandemic and a zombie apocalypse all in one! Thankfully, Kim Kardashian and Justin "Has He Been Found Dead In A Hotel Room Yet?" Bieber have been frozen and shot into space so that if and when this is all over those that remain may once again grovel at their feet and worship their awesome pointlessness.
Can't trust Iranian or Chinese numbers. Italian numbers look FAR worse. The only cheerful views on this seems to be the almost universally wishing and hoping that the leaders, celebrities, or figures and such from whatever group(s) someone doesn't like contract the disease. This has shown me that the notion of putting aside squabbles or narrative gamesmanship for dealing with real problems is not something the vast majority of people are capable of, and I'd be a fool to throw in my lot with larger modern society. Glad I've stocked up well before this became mainstream. Probably won't be able to avoid this due to my daughter's age making her such a likely vector for exposure from peers. I think I'm just disgusted enough that I'll be just fine with watching the world burn at this point. Humanity finally broke me from my hope and respect for them. It's for me and mine now, and it wasn't fear of the virus, or supply chain break down, or economic depression that got to me. It's the casual and callous hatred and desire for the suffering of others as a bright spot clung to by nearly ever faction that seems to want to rule in hell rather than serve in heaven. We aren't worth saving.
