As his failure becomes complete, Donald Trump keeps finding new ways to embarrass himself. Trump has spent the past week dishonestly attacking the Governors of New York and California, in an effort to deflect the blame for his inept mishandling of the coronavirus crisis. Now Trump has settled on a new target:
The thing is, Donald Trump is giving something away here. He’s flat out asserting that the federal government is merely there to “back up” the Governors of individual states during the coronavirus crisis.

Now what we know what his strategy is going to be, we have to make sure it won’t stick.
