 I told you that I thought it was funny, and, after some thought, I realized that the reason I laughed is because Trump and most of the more visible Republicans have created conditions where it takes a lot of emotional energy to think positively of them.  

It takes absolutely no emotional energy to be acutely and painfully aware of all the damage they've done.  That's the constant condition they've created.

Ran across this little tidbit today

President Trump on Wednesday endorsed mask-wearing in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, saying he is “all for masks” despite resisting wearing one in public himself.

“I’m all for masks. I think masks are good,” Trump told Fox Business in an interview, adding that he would wear a face covering if he were in a “tight situation” with other people.

Trump noted that he hasn’t had to wear a mask because people who come in contact with him are tested for the coronavirus. Asked whether he would wear a mask publicly, Trump said he would have “no problem” with doing so.

“I mean, I’d have no problem. Actually, I had a mask on, I sort of liked the way I looked,” Trump said, adding that he thought he looked like the “Lone Ranger.”  

Trump stopped short of calling for a mandatory mask policy, however, saying that in some areas of the country people stay a “very long distance” away from one another.

Trump’s remarks come after Republicans and his allies have publicly endorsed mask-wearing, with some urging him to wear a mask publicly in order to set an example for the American public

Maybe his half-hearted admission that masks are good will catch on with those who don't wear them for political reasons and the number of mask wearing public will increase.

He is correct. Everyone gets the termometer test before getting close. My eye clinic keeps patients and possible customers outside
a chain link door until they take their temperature.
We have to remember that heads of state are different from.other people. Just ask QE2. She rarely shakes hands and an aide carries hand disinfectant for the times she does.

I am far less tolerant of the mistakes my side makes than I am of the screwups by the other side.  I figure the other side simply can't help themselves.  I've always been impatient with my own mistakes, as I think most of us are, so I should be equally as impatient when my side does something dumb.  Don't you feel that way about your side?

My wife is delighted that Queen Elizabeth never looks before she sits down.  Someone is responsible for making sure the chair is in place.

No, I try to be open minded until someone really goofs.
I started life as a 4th generation Democrat. It was when people were basking in the glow of Roosevelt and Truman but were still proud of a true military veteran being in charge. Of course, I could only read pictures then. JFK had a pretty wife who rode horses and had two cute children. In real life he was a scoundrel with a long list of things done in private that were disgusting but his family kept them secret. Of course, you know all that. LBJ also did disgusting things in private but they were hidden, too. We have had many POTUS who did bad things in private but good fir the nation. The odd thingvis we had Ford, a nan with many years of experience and a son who was an Episcopal priest but we chose Jimmy Who? A man with very little experience who went to an all white church. His son sat on the roof of the White House smoking pot. Pot was illegal then. Reagan was a breath of fresh air but divorced. Hus wife
