Trump is just the worst possible president for the worst possible crisis.

I was wondering about that myself. I wonder if more people will see him for what he is.
Think it was ER who said that Trump is just allergic to bad news. He genuinely doesn't know how to deal with it, process it, or discuss it.

Well I mean he's a gameshow host with absolutely no moral rectitude.
He became president as a vanity project without the capacity intellectually or morally to grasp what he was really doing.
HRC was such a superior candidate, but also uniquely unsuited to getting elected.

Decent article and a bit of a relief regarding our machine capacity as in we have 250 ventilators. Problem is staff working them https://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/ ... -1.4201544

Simon Coveney is painfully unsure when talking about topics he isn't fully up to speed on. It might be a sign of honesty on his part, but it's not reassuring.

Totally agree. He has been very poor the last week. Think it was Blackrock Bullet who rubbished my suggestion Coveney was the bee's knees and I think he is right. I am not sure what he is going for but he has seemed sort of panicked and sounded ill informed. I now get the Paschal love

I think his line is still true that if he walked down 5th Avenue and shot someone his base would still love him. His numbers didn't drop for his s shakedown of the Ukraine ffs

Yeah I don’t think many people will be turned off by this if they haven’t been turned off already. Trumps whole game of ignoring issues and then blaming other people really works unfortunately.

Biden's done well to paint a fairly decent contrast between the two of them.
We'll see, not sure about anything over these next few months.

A depressing side impact of this Prime Time is the calibre of expert they've lined up is highlighting just how poor our average politician is. As to be expected, most of the guys on tonight are leagues ahead of the politicians usually lined up.

Can't be imagining it, the calibre of politician is in decline here, right?

@Joey

Not sure. One of the biggest problems is if a decent politician speaks with authority they get shouted down for being condescending.
If they don't try to shout down the mouth-breathers, they get accused of being weak. They can't fcuking win.

Curious to see how it plays out. There’s some amazing hypocrisy already, Trump supporters hitting Biden over senility and being creepy towards women :|

There is truth in that but looking across the Dail and thinking who would be a better Minister for Health than Harris and there's hardly a rake of decent options, and Harris is (imo) pretty poor.

Naturally, guys who are experts in their fields are going to be impressive people, but it's pretty stark contrast.

SF haven't worked out their angle yet. They need to cover as many options as possible so when things go wring they have a plausible line of "oh, we told you on X that the right thing to do was etc". Useless hurlers on the ditch the lot of them.

This.

Normally everyones opinion, from the expert to the knowledgeable politician to the mouth breather is given equal status by the media.

The only reason experts are being listened to now, is because everyone fears a visit from the plague doctor.

Sure we are where we are. Realistically Harris will be health minister for the next month or so when you would think things will reach their worst. He may not be the health minister we deserve or even the health minister we need but he's what we've got so best of luck to him.

Massive recession on the horizon if things in the US are anything to go by. Said it in the other thread but things in Boston are getting a bit manic. Universities shuttered, sports & theatre cancelled until August. Way more people wearing masks. Going to the polls after this seems madness.

Traffic significantly lighter this morning. Car park in work about half as full as it usually is.

Not liking where this is going in here in terms of who works from home, who doesn't.

Looking like if you have kids, you can work from home (fairly limited in what you can do from home doing CQV in pharma), and if you don't have kids you will be "helping out" with the work that the parents won't be doing. And we've all been banned from the canteen.

A lot of people were saying that if you ran out of hand sanitiser, alcohol would work.
Did you start with the hand sanitiser or the wine?

Yeah apparently there were queues into Tesco in Liffey Valley at 7am. FFS, hopefully it'll calm down after today.
Still plenty of booze though
