Response to Miguelito Loveless (Reply #11)

23. +THIS+

imagine the infection rate surging in October
federal government orders mass quarantines
national guard deployed all over the country
police wearing PPE patrolling the polling places

what will this do for turnout and GOTV activities?

to enable his second term, Trump needs this epidemic to be as damaging as possible. his worst case scenario was an outbreak that actually gets handled effectively, as that would both expose his incompetence and enable the elections to proceed "normally".

his play was to double-down on the nothing burger angle and bungle the federal response. if it didn't impact us, he looks like a prophet and can claim he's smarter than the entire WHO. okay, doesn't look like that's going his way, so the backup next step is to enable the outbreak's maximum impact so he's justified in doing whatever for "national security".

he's intentionally mishandling the federal response. he will gladly sacrifice thousands of lives to extend his powers.

it's not a nice plan, actually it's a downright inhumane plan, but it sure as hell looks like a plan to me.
