Stay And Fight

Following on Friday yet another highly troubling news conference held by the President of the USA, Trump advisers, according to Gabriel Sherman

are numb to this kind of performance. “There’s very little that fazes anyone now,” a former official said. But one person who spoke to the president over the weekend saw the press conference as an ominous sign. “He’s just now waking up to the fact that this is bad, and he doesn’t know how to respond"...

Stories about Trump’s coronavirus fears have spread through the White House. Last week Trump told aides he’s afraid journalists will try to purposefully contract coronavirus to give it to him on Air Force One, a person close to the administration told me. The source also said Trump has asked the Secret Service to set up a screening program and bar anyone who has a cough from the White House grounds. “He’s definitely melting down over this,” the source said.

As alleged by "a person close to the adminstration," Donald Trump is afraid journalists will try to purposefully contract coronavirus to give it to him on Air Force One

President Trump will not perform his job. But someone has to do so, beginning with whomever believes that the President of the United States of America, usually considered to be the leader of the free world, believes journalists will try to contract a deadly virus so they can pass it on to him.

This, however, is not how the nation's legislative body should do theirs:
The problem is not that Congress is doing too much. It is doing too little, including deciding five weeks ago that a President can do whatever he wants as long as it helps get him re-elected.

This is not a time for advisers to the President to remain silent members of Congress. Nor should Congress flee Washington, D.C., leaving the capital to a President who not only is the modern face of evil, but is not a well man.
