This is mostly a recap of the last month or so since Trump agreed to extend social-distancing guidelines. If you're paying attention there's nothing especially new, but helpful in identifying a few recurring themes.

First: If you, an uncredentialed hack, manage to get yourself on the White House's radar with a rosy forecast or magic bullet, Trump will disregard actual expertise in a heartbeat and go with whatever garbage you're peddling, whether it's a poll, cure, or chart.

Second: Jared Kushner somehow manages to exceed my worst expectations with every utterance.
