Pandemic Diary Day 66: Everyone Knows What A Cornered Rat Will Do-The Same Holds True for Trump

Dear Diary,

The orange troglodyte camped out in the White House is really worried.

November cometh soon. Election Day looms like a club over Trump's toupee. The polls show Biden is getting more popular every day.

His 2016 conspiracies' aren't playing to as many drooling audiences in 2020... because they've been disproved by facts repeatedly during the last three years, and the coronavirus stay-at-home orders prohibiting crowds.

Like a cornered rat, Trump is looking for an escape from the growing reality surrounding him. That means danger for those who he doesn't consider loyal.

Historical note: Rats have been carriers of disease since ancient times. 

With over 92,000 deaths (and climbing) Trump's lack of leadership and candor has resulted in chaos during a pandemic that should have united the country to fight it.

Trump's tiny rodent-brain is unable to fully comprehend what experts warn him about. Whether it's national security or drinking Lysol to fight COVID-19, his ego rebels against expertise.

With his Republican minions riding on his fat back like fleas, Trump thinks he can get away with snarling, denying, lying, and bullying truth-talkers (inspector generals) into submission. He sees the tactic as one more path to getting re-elected.

One last observation:

Trump often refers to the coronavirus as "the plague." I like that analogy because - like a rat - he's been a big reason why the country is so heavily infected with the virus.

On the Homefront - Medford, Oregon
**State COVID stats - 3,800 confirmed novel coronavirus cases and 140 deaths.

**More than 1.2 million Oregon voters had their say Tuesday. No surprise, Joe Biden won (68 percent to Sanders' 19 percent.) If you'd like to see the rest of the results click here.

**Duck in hot water!
Luke Hill, Oregon Ducks 4-star cornerback signee, arrested, charged with attempted murder in first degree.

His preliminary hearing date is set for June19th.

**School opening - The University of Portland is planning to reopen for the fall term with coronavirus measures. It should be interesting to see how that works out.

Memo To Republicans: Don't Assume Kissing Trump's Ring Will Get You Elected, or Re-Elected

It's a mystery to me how you Republicans still show fealty to a traitor and enemy of democracy. Apparently most of you who are  running...
