It's early to be summarizing this year, but with four months in I can't help myself.
The year started with a bang as Congress impeached Trump.
Then Trump was alerted that a deadly virus poised a major threat to the US economy, and every American life, and didn't do a damn thing about it!
Leaping into inaction, Trump stalled the scientists, healthcare professionals, and even his own team (think Navarro's report) in an effort to see if the problem would just "magically disappear."
Then the Senate acquitted Trump, and he went on a revenge tour, which continues to this day.
But, the coronavirus didn't go away and Donny had a new problem. America went on to have more cases and deaths from the coronavirus than any country in the world. And here we are... still counting.
Historians will be slapping their foreheads when they read (and watch videos) of Trump protestors demanding states re-open in the middle of the pandemic.
You want crazy? 2020 will be remembered for odd shit like when a physicist was hospitalized for putting magnets up his nose and...
when the INSANE CLOWN POSSE demonstrated a better understanding of epidemiology than the president of the United States!
And the merry-go-round continues...
**The American Oil Boom ended with a whimper as shale oil markets dried up this month.
**As of this entry, there's 26 million Americans who went on unemployment - literally wiping out all the job gains since 2008
**Oh Yeah! This just happens to be a presidential election year!
Right now, the soon-to-be-confirmed Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, is beating Trump in crucial swing state polls. Hopefully that trend continues and widens into increased support for Joe in November.
We're one quarter of the way through the year after next week.
