Have you ever wondered why the Coronavirus is clobbering the US, but has hardly touched Russia, or why Trump has been dragging his feet in leading America’s defense against it, or that he can’t wait to mix up tens of thousands of likely infected folks with the rests of us? I mean, why would the Donald want to dismantle the nation’s pandemic preparedness team and blows off intelligence reports about everything?

Do you think there might be something untoward going on with Trumpsky and his old pal Putin? Just saying, every time something bad happens to the United States, Trump is right in the middle of it, and there’s a broad, all-knowing smile on Putin’s face when he looks at Donny Boy.
