It's even worse than it appears.
If Trump's talk from the hospital this evening was meant to reassure it had the opposite effect. And you can tell he doesn't actually do anything, because the only thing he came up with for what he does is Make (sigh) America Great Again. Oh really. Is that what we're doing. #
Imagine you're a kid in a house where they love Trump. It's weird because they're admiring a bully, yet trying to make sure their kid knows bullies are bad. Every family has to deal with this one way or another. I wonder how they do it. Now there's a moral to the story. See, even the bully needs help from other people.#
Trump needs science to save his life. Not "as if by magic it'll disappear." If his life is saved it'll be saved by science.#
It’s kind of amazing CNN hasn’t figured out that there was a previous president who got a virus in a pandemic. Woodrow Wilson in 1918, got the Spanish flu and was disabled for the rest of his life as a result.#
Something weird is happening. I woke up this morning with nothing to say. For a moment at least the world seems to be straightening itself out. I might take a well-deserved break.#
This was all so preventable.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
