Trump Resists Pressure to Force Companies to Make Coronavirus Supplies — New York Times
Tom Scocca at Slate: This Isn't Trump's Katrina. It's Stupid, Slow-Motion 9/11. We could have averted the worst. Our pathological president ensured that we did not.
Trump's Katrina has come and gone; the pandemic is Trump's 9/11—an even stupider 9/11 than the original stupid one, 9/11 if the president's security briefing on Sept. 10 had been titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S. by Hijacking Commercial Airliners Out of Washington and Boston and Crashing Them Into Major Buildings in September," and people had just read it out on TV for the public to hear, and also camera crews had followed Mohamed Atta to the Portland, Maine, airport but the government had not bothered to keep track of him when he entered the terminal. And the security checkpoints had been shut down as a gesture of spite toward the previous administration.
Everything about this column is correct.
