If you were worried, Evan has the week off.
Don't read this story about Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein forcing US attorneys at the border to prosecute parents so their infants had to be removed, it will make you sick. — New York Times
Big ol' Gold Star families event the day after the Amy Coney Barrett Superspreader Fiesta? Has anybody checked to see if these families are well? We know the White House isn't contact tracing the ACB slob picnic, and it had important attendees, like Chris Christie and Kellyanne Conway and Thom Tillis and Mike Lee.

God, they're fucking exhausting:
For [Tucker] Carlson and his Friday guest, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the lesson of Trump getting the virus after ignoring public health recommendations is that there's no point in implementing those recommendations. "If this virus can get into the Oval, into the body of the president, there is no place where it could not possibly infect one of our fellow Americans," Gaetz claimed, adding that "there is no lockdown that can be a panacea to save everyone from everything, and this is proof positive that's the case."

What does that nerd at the Federal Reserve think?
"Too little support would lead to a weak recovery, creating unnecessary hardship for households and businesses," Powell said. "Over time, household insolvencies and business bankruptcies would rise, harming the productive capacity of the economy, and holding back wage growth. By contrast, the risks of overdoing it seem, for now, to be smaller. Even if policy actions ultimately prove to be greater than needed, they will not go to waste."
— Jerome Powell, what a nerd
As if you needed another reason, but perhaps the president's horrifically reckless and negligent superspreader hoedowns might illustrate that some people are actually horrifically reckless and negligent, so maybe Nancy Pelosi should indeed continue to block Mitch McConnell's liability immunity wet dream.
