Notes on a Nightmare #7: The Plague
‘Sadness’ and Disbelief From a World Missing American Leadership: The coronavirus pandemic is shaking bedrock assumptions about U.S. exceptionalism.

It’s not just the bleach. Trump is a catalog of bad ideas that tax resources. (when I worked for a narcissist, this was my life)
When Trump says he was being ‘sarcastic,’ it’s just part of his gaslighting
After covid-19, aging in America may never be the same
We Are Living in a Failed State: The coronavirus didn’t break America. It revealed what was already broken. (though the admittedly hypothetical counterfactuals of either a Clinton or Sanders administration might suggest otherwise)
