Donald Trump keeps talking about how he’s going to magically reopen the country for business on Easter, April 12th. If he were to do so, he’d be sentencing perhaps hundreds of thousands of Americans to death. Fortunately, Trump doesn’t get to “reopen” the country because he’s not the one who shut anything down to begin with. Now Trump himself is getting shut down.
Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign headquarters is based in Virginia. That’s one of the states that’s been shut down for safety reasons, thanks to Virginia’s responsible Democratic Governor. This means that Trump’s campaign headquarters has been forcibly shut down. CBS News says that lawyers went so far as to inform the Trump campaign that it would be committing a crime by not shutting its doors.
Notably, the Trump campaign headquarters is being shuttered until at least April 24th – a full twelve days after Donald Trump’s stated target date for his phony “reopening” of the country. This guy couldn’t be more delusional. Meanwhile back in the real world, even his own offices are going to shuttered for quite awhile.
