COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

As a grown-up, I can understand their (usually inelegantly-stated etc) point. What are the downsides of that "fluidity"? RT @Pontificatist [to YAppelbaum] I love your story but it occurs to me that a MAGA American will hate the fluidity of Americanness you describe. <sigh>

.@MyNameH33271686: @julietlapidos & @YAppelbaum fail as Americans. Canada (corporate pluralism) is more appropriate for them that the USA (melting pot).

Because Trump is smarter than King & you two? Either that or sun spots. MT @YAppelbaum Steve King is a “special guy, a smart person, with really the right views on almost everything,” the president has said. So why, asks @AdamSerwer, is King drawing condemnation, but not Trump?

.@AdamSerwer @YAppelbaum: even if Steyer offered you $10 million for something that'd reduce Trump's popularity by 5%, you'd completely fail as you always have. You simply lack the smarts, sanity, & life experience to undercut a clown. #TheAtlantic #MAGA #resist

A self-aware, almost sentient comment. You're both ready for your Trump Turing Test! MT @YAppelbaum "Trump’s political opponents know who he is. His aides know who he is. Americans don’t need a tape to know who Trump is, or what he represents.” @AdamSerwer

.@JoshuaMZeitz blogs "Does the White Working Class Really Vote Against Its Own Interests?" It's a brilliant piece incl "As Ta-Nehisi Coates argues". @billscher @YAppelbaum @JoyAnnReid all agree it's brilliant! Highly recommended for #TheResistance who want to grok #MAGA!
