30. The biggest problem with him right now is that *he* is POTUS

If he were some random Fox News pundit or old crank on the street (or on the interwebs), he would not command the same level of attention as he does right now- as POTUS. Most sane and rational folk I've seen so far have rejected and/or condemned his non-CDC-endorsed remarks and suggestions about setting an arbitrary deadline for "re-opening" the economy, which is good, but for every person who refuses to listen to Trump, there are at least one or two people whom hang on this idiot's every word and will literally ingest hazardous chemicals because the President said something promising about them as a *possible* unproven/untested treatment for COVID-19. Once Easter happens, those same people will think that that "all clear" has been sounded and it's time to go back to old habits and activities and states and localities may find it increasingly difficult to maintain quarantines even if they're still in place. There's obviously got to be *some* end to this or loosening of restrictions but there has to be some demonstrable progress to warrant it (ie. increased testing, approved treatments, vaccines, declining case/mortality rates). Trump doesn't decide when this happens and he's not demonstrated that we've made the kind of progress that warrants loosening restrictions and it remains to be seem if something significant will be accomplished by Easter.
