I can't even imagine a "Donald Trump Presidential Library" much less anyone dedicating it.

It would probably be a bunch of history books about great US leaders with every mention of their names crossed out and "DONALD TRUMP" scribbled in suspiciously familiar handwriting with a Sharpie.

Who would donate money to build it? Trump will shred all documents.  Probably just portraits of him and Putty.

Save us all from Jared Kushner

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/06/save-us-all-jared-kushner/

 

Quote

Whenever a member of the Trump family gets involved with a project, it is always smart to keep an eye out for the grift.

 

We might have hoped that a pandemic that has already cost more than 70,000 Americans their lives would be an exception to this rule. But no. President Trump’s decision to again put his unqualified son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in charge of a team charged with a vital national security interest — this time, procuring crucial supplies and protective equipment for hospitals and others on the front lines of fighting the coronavirus — is producing the usual results: incompetence and cronyism.

 

Both The Post and the New York Times report that Kushner and a small team of inexperienced volunteers from the private sector have overridden career officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency and are making a deadly crisis even deadlier with their amateur-hour bungling. The two newspapers — which no doubt will be denounced by the White House as “fake news” — based their accounts on a whistleblower memo written by one of the volunteers and interviews with government sources familiar with the effort.

 

The story line, which sounds as though it might have been lifted from the reality show “Shark Tank,” had been that these whiz kids from consulting, venture capital and private equity firms were better equipped than federal officials who have spent years planning for a disaster like the one we are going through to sift through leads on where to find badly needed personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies and cut deals to acquire them.

 

That the volunteers would want to lend a hand is admirable, but finding and procuring the proper equipment require a high degree of technical knowledge. As my colleagues Yasmeen Abutaleb and Ashley Parker reported, “the team responsible for PPE had little success in helping the government secure such equipment, in part because none of the team members had significant experience in health care, procurement or supply-chain operations. In addition, none of the volunteers had relationships with manufacturers or a clear understanding of customs requirements or Food and Drug Administration rules, according to the complaint and two senior administration officials.”

 

And as you might expect in any operation run by a member of the Trump family, some leads and requests got better treatment than others. Documents and emails indicate there was a spreadsheet titled “V.I.P. Update,” which gave priority to Trump allies who included Republican members of Congress; former “Apprentice” contestant Tana Goertz, who now runs Women For Trump, and favored media figures such as “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade. Also put on a fast track were requests by Fox News Channel host Jeanine Pirro that a specific New York hospital receive a large quantity of masks.

It'll consist of a Hall of video screens running reruns of "The Apprentice."

I imagine it to be full of coloring books and books written to a 3rd grade level.

Anyone watch the Chernobyl documentary?

 

the modern day Republican Party and its supporters (and yes they’re to blame because they’re required for this) are basically the equivalent of soviet era Russia

 

facts don’t matter. Science and evidence don’t matter. All that matters is backing the kremlin.  They know all and know best so just back them and attack anyone that gets out of line.

HBO's Chernobyl is a masterpiece. It's a bit galling to realize the US is now the decaying state run by Comrade Dyatlov and the Soviet bureaucracy.

Replace Boris Shcherbina with a Trump political lackey, Valery Legasov with Anthony Fauci, and change the words to "I'm told it's the equivalent of the seasonal flu" and you basically have what's happening here.

I wish Axl would have responded with "My band's version of 'Live & Let Die' is the soundtrack of the current administration."

It’s worse. The decaying soviet bureaucracy still had somewhat of a foothold in reality and eventually got Chernobyl under control. 
 

The Trumpers would have declared victory after evacuating Pripyat while letting the radiation leak and poison the continent.

Interesting op-ed by the former Australian Prime Minister on China & US post-pandemic:

 

For different reasons, the United States does not come out of the crisis much better. The world has watched in horror as an American president acts not as the leader of the free world but as a quack apothecary recommending unproven “treatments.” It has seen what “America First” means in practice: don’t look to the United States for help in a genuine global crisis, because it can’t even look after itself. Once there was the United States of the Berlin airlift. Now there is the image of the USS Theodore Roosevelt crippled by the virus, reports of the administration trying to take exclusive control of a vaccine being developed in Germany, and federal intervention to stop the commercial sale of personal protective equipment to Canada. The world has been turned on its head.
