During his coronavirus briefing today, Trump blamed hospitals-- where doctors and nurses are literally dying trying to save patients-- for selling ventilators and masks (which is, of course, exactly what he would do himself). "It’s a New York hospital, very-- it’s packed all the time. How do...

Lindsey Graham offered an amendment to the Pandemic Bailout Bill that would have penalized some workers, maybe even starved a few of their families to death or forced them into homelessness. We looked at that a couple of days ago. So did that naughty, naughty South Carolina actor (Anna...
