Trump Losing, but Not for the Right Reasons

To think that he could have gotten away scot free had we not had the pandemic. He would have sailed right past all the lies and the criminality, and probably won a second term and installed himself as absolute ruler had he not faced this specific type of challenge, i.e., one that requires honesty to address.

Pandemics don’t respond to lies, spin, or blaming others; they’re beaten by the honest and transparent application of science, and that is as far from Trump as the rings of Saturn.

What’s going to happen next is anyone’s guess, but at this point it seems clear that we’ll have a new president in January, and all because of a few strands of genetic material, encased in a thin layer of grease.
