Lamentable impulse to give Trump credit
I can't stand this constant impulse to credit Trump with something, at least – China is also to blame for the coronavirus fiasco. We rely on China for our info now? No, China behaved as China could be expected to behave and any competent administration would have been on top of the situation with our own intelligence and assessments and countermeasures rather than Trump's imbecilic sidelining of everyone smarter than him, which is everyone worth listening to. This China dodge is pathetically weak and he deserves to be ridiculed for it, not exculpated.
