March came in like a lamb, and is going out like a devastating viral pandemic. That just doesn’t seem right.

David Waldman is joined by Joan McCarter today, with nary a wheeze between them!

Donald Trump said it would all go away like a miracle, and he isn’t wrong yet. Earlier this month however, would have been a much better time to schedule that miracle. April looks to be much more hectic, with the deaths and all.

A Pentecostal pastor promised miracles, but bore the touch of Trump unto his flock. Mr. Pillow asked a national audience to join him in worship of their new savior.

Donald has indeed heralded a golden age of looting and profiteering. Trump suspects a gang of masked nurses might be raiding personal protective equipment caches, but it appears the stuff just might be falling off trucks on the way to the hospitals. A longtime Republican fundraiser happens to know a few guys that follow those kind of trucks.

Idaho seizes this moment to pass 2 anti-transgender bills, just as a U.S. appeals court shys away from civil rights. People look into how pandemic authority can be used to abuse others... once again. Now is a good time for a strike, and Instacart workers deliver it on schedule with the help of labor at Amazon and Whole Foods.

Moscow Mitch McConnell tells us that impeachment hearings, ending at a point midway between Donald Trump’s January 9th, 14th, 28th, 30th and February 10th, 19th, 20th, 21st and 28th MAGA rallies, and his January 18th, 19th and February 1st, 15th and March 7th and Mar 8th golf outings, probably distracted all the Republicans that weren’t insider trading. In fact, Trump just now discovered that coronavirus tests aren’t being well distributed. Donald’s going to hit the ceiling when he is told what 3.4% of the US population is. Hey, he isn’t the only one in DC detached from reality.
