    Trump included a lovely signing statement with $2 trillion dollar coronavirus relief bill. All the oversight put in by the Democrats in the bill has been removed with a stroke of the pen. I expect Trump can now pocket his $50 billion and be top dog in New York. Bloomberg is worth $47 billion. Trump is worth $3 billion. Now Trump will finally have enough money to get even with Bloomberg once and for all!

    Hmm... Trump sure has become a different man now that this crisis is upon us and he has nobly decided to put the interests of the
    American people above his own interests and the interests of his crony business friends. What a breath of spring air to see that he is above trying to profiteer in any way whatsoever off of a deadly pandemic! I am so, so glad I took the wise advice of highly intelligent people to give him a second chance! Gosh, how brainy of them to foresee this turn-around in our president.

    From the very start, Mitch McConnell tried to give Mr. Trump a slush fund of hundreds of billions of tax dollars for Mr. Trump to reward himself and his friends out of. That's why the first draft of the stimulus bill set aside over 400 billion dollars to be spent by the Treasury Department entirely at its discretion with absolutely no timely reporting of how the money was being spent. McConnell was thwarted by the Democrats who insisted on various safeguards. But now we know Mr. Trump has simply dismissed those safeguards and will refuse to heed them.

    Sweet. All that tax money --- one of the largest bank robberies in history now.

    Klein Shocks open the door for radical social changes that would be impossible if the public weren't distracted and infantilized by fear or insecurity. Special interests all scramble to effect self-serving changes while the public's distracted by the crise du jour and looking for a strong father-figure to submit to.

    Trump orders ventilators with one hand while quietly shelving environmental regulations with the other. Smoke and mirrors.
