The Morning Rant

What have we learned from the coronavirus crisis?

Just like the entire Trump presidency, the coronavirus crisis has unexpectedly turned out to be a Great Revealer. Some of the things we already knew, but now they seem to be getting a much more broad exposure - which is why the progressives are caterwauling so loudly. Much of what they've built their hopes, dreams, and various rent-collecting schemes on are turning out to be fluff.

So, in no particular order:

1. The Democrats' main fear is not that people may die or that our economy might tank, but that under Trump's leadership, the country will successfully beat back the virus threat and emerge stronger than ever. Also, that Trump's reputation will be enhanced, both at home and internationally.

2. In January, when Trump was mulling over travel restrictions from China and setting up a coronavirus task force, the Democrats were focused entirely on impeachment.

3. Our MSM is the CCP's butt-boy.

4. The WHO is the CCP's other butt-boy. Seriously.

5. If there's one profession that really enjoys the smell of its own farts, it's journalism.

6. They're also yuuge crybabies.

7. Many police departments don't really want to do any actual policing. Which pokes a hole in the progressives' article of faith that only the government can protect you. I'm hoping that this might also cause the formation of citizens groups in some cities that will ask the question "so what, exactly, are we paying you for?"

8. Tom Nichols is a complete dick. Yes, I know we already knew this, but I think the extent of his dickitude was not fully known until now. It's a like some guys spelunked down into a good-sized cave and then saw a small opening behind some stalactites that, upon investigation, leads to a hitherto unknown second cave which turns out to be ten or twenty times larger than the original cave, complete with an underground river running with a species of transparent, bioluminescent fish. That's how big a garbage person Nichols actually is. Kind of takes your breath away.

9. In a national, life-threatening crisis, the progressives' first response is to funnel money to themselves.

10. Trump has got this.
