    The usual cast of right wing talk show hosts, pundits, commentators and asshats at large are coming after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the one person in the Trump administration who seems to know what he’s talking about concerning the corona virus. As so many who work for Trump have discovered, being a scientist is very difficult, particularly if it involves delivering bad news. Even though Fauci lends a great deal of credibility, Trump may fire him because Trump doesn’t care about facts, evidence, science, medicine, human suffering, o anything else but himself. Good luck, Dr Fauci.

    I’ll give you a hint, it’s not Bogart with the balls talking about strawberries, it’s the defense attorney condemning the mutineers for abandoning and condemning Bogart’s character because they didn’t like him. Now Trump is not the same situation – and that difference is crucial – but it is the same question. How much are we opposing Trump because he is evil as opposed to how much are we supporting quislings like Pelosi and Biden just because they say that they are opposing Trump while stabbing us in the back. Refusing to ask ourselves that question will kill us.

      If the ship’s officers had supported the captain, he could have muddled through. He would not have gone crazy and endangered the ship in the typhoon. The moral of the story, as illustrated by the attorney’s speech, is that loyalty and support will make everything OK. Or will it? Maybe the captain was so crazy that he would have ignored all attempts to give him advice, as he did in the “strawberries” incident. Maybe efforts to support him would have made him even more paranoid because he was so far gone he couldn’t recognize loyalty. This certainly seems to be the case with Trump. In several instances, he turned on people who worked for him and berated them in public, called them dishonest and accused them of plotting against him. He seems susceptible to suggestions that his underlings are part of the Deep State, and he dismisses the possibility they simply might be trying to do a good job.
