Rounding the Delusional Corner
Contentment reigns in MAGA land, where the White House just feted, among their remarkable achievements, “ENDING (THE) PANDEMIC” with Trump's "decisive actions." Whew. We're kinda relieved, having heard about his massive failure to collect data, lethal shortfall on PPE, failed $300 million celebrity ad blitz to “defeat despair," maskless rallies where fans are dropping from cold and heat, and record 90,400-plus new cases - one a second. Thank God for alternative reality .

Trump In A Nutshell: They Came For the Covid, But Stayed For the Hypothermia
In a mind-numbing, butt-freezing, metaphor-rich shitshow in Omaha, the guys who say they want to run the country just failed to run a parking lot after missing buses left thousands of often older rally-goers stranded for hours in frigid temps in search of their cars. Twitter had thoughts: It wouldn't be cold without thermometers, don't let hypothermia dominate your life, it's Obama's fault, and it is what it is: With Trump, you will always end up abandoned in a cold, dark place.

Tree of Life: May Their Memory Be For A Blessing
This week marks two years since the country's deadliest act of anti-Semitism, when a madman shot and killed 11 mostly older Jews worshipping at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue. Today, survivors and their community try to heal and move forward - with a book and oral history project, the task of Tikkun Olam - repairing the world - and the charge to remember, akin to the Biblical call to give praise. A survivor: "You have to remember. Their lives meant something."

Ours Is A Cold and Righteous Anger
They did it. Shredding the norms of democracy and decency, the GOP rammed through Amy Coney Barrett, the woman walking through the doors RBG opened so she can slam them behind her. On a dark day, people grieved, vowed voters' vengeance, raged at a venal GOP and "morally hideous" Barrett willing to join their illicit power grab, prayed she'd be forever tainted by shame and the stink of bias. They also hoped she'd remain haunted by RBG, towering above her.

Hubris Unending
With the White House openly giving up on the pandemic, it's fitting the Lincoln Project's put the couple from hell known as Jivanka on massive billboards in Times Square as a reminder they likewise don't give a shit about you. Their lawyer wants to sue over the "malicious and defamatory" ads; the Project says their indifference and entitlement are real, their "indignant outrage (is) comical," and "their empty threats will not be taken any more seriously than we take Ivanka and Jared."

On Trump's Full, Flowing, Magnificently Brilliant Answers
Poor little snowflake Donny's been super busy throwing tantrums after one of those mean girl reporters hurt his feelings again. When 60 Minutes' Leslie Stahl started her interview with, "Are you ready for tough questions?" - and then asked some - he was so mad he left in a huff and posted it all to expose her "bias, hatred and rudeness," aka her competence as he lied, dodged, stumbled. And earlier he even gave her a big book of all the health care things he's done! It was blank, but still.

It Would Evidently Be Inappropriate for Amy Coney Barrett To Opine on the Existence of Gravity
Dems plan to boycott the Senate Judiciary Committee's damn-the-torpedoes vote on Amy Barrett by a power-hungry GOP despite ongoing leaks of horror stories from her past. Little wonder she has secrets: In 184 pages of newly released, follow-up testimony, she again declined to "opine" on health care, climate change, systemic racism, voting, women's and LGBTQ rights, or even whether it's ok to vote twice in an election, which she deemed an "abstract legal issue."

Dumb Bastards Are Killing Us
The horrors go on. With "Fat Elvis" having lost the narrative, he's now calling health experts "idiots" as he abandons any pretext of slowing a "wildfire" of a pandemic soaring in 48 states. And it's worse behind the scenes. In an alarming look at the "Den of Dissent" that's the COVID task force, WaPo reveals an embattled mess of "distrust, infighting and lethargy" led by a clueless, power-hungry, widely denounced quack who's been nothing but wrong on COVID "early and often."

In the Name of Humanity: I Am My Mother's Savage Daughter
The latest Women's March brimmed with hope, rage, resolve, stellar signs - "I'm Speaking, The Future Is Equal, No Country For Old Men" - and vows women will "walk over broken glass" to vote the fascist out. With milions of teens who can newly vote or soon will, it also featured many young people galvanized by the times and good parents. In a speech, Charlotte Meyer, 9, summoned the spirit of RBG: "Let’s (all) stand up for one another, and create the world she hoped for.”

Worst, Ever
In an electrifying shift from their long-timid criticisms of the current horrors, the New York Times just went full scorched- earth on the "racist demagogue" and "man of no integrity" whose rampant corruption, racism, violence, gross negligence and "breathtaking disregard for the lives and liberties of Americans" renders Trump "the nation's most pressing problem" and by far "the worst American president in modern history." But tell us how you really feel.
