President Donald Trump on Friday demanded that governors reopen churches, synagogues and mosques “right now,” and threatened to “override” state leaders’ restrictions if they do not do so by the weekend.

The surprise announcement marked the president’s latest attempt to ramp up the political stakes surrounding the country’s coronavirus recovery efforts. He is facing a tough reelection fight and as he sinks in polls against apparent Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Churches are like masks for Trump: they are essential for other people...

Funny thing. He can only 'override' state health department declarations by declaring martial law and activating the National Guard. And that's EXACTLY why his fanboys all went and armed themselves.

He also seems to be assuming that the churches want to re-open and put their congregation and clergy at risk. Ordering them to re-open, is different than lifting restrictions that are keeping them closed.

Golly. Ordering churches to open sounds an awful lot like Big Government telling me What To Do.

Cheeto said this only so all the evangelical mega churches can keep the money rolling in. It is stunning that people don't see it for what it is.

I heard of a poll that said old white evangelical support was slipping, so he had to nip it in the bud.

US Covid deaths to date = 96,329; up around 1300 since yesterday. Before Memorial Day is over, we’ll probably be over 100,000. Rates in at least 18 states still going up.

But yeah, we need to have people packing together inside “right now”.

He needs to distract from the 100,000 death level becoming a thing; if this doesn't do it maybe the invasion of some obscure Caribbean Island nation...

“Worthless” would be a huge step up for him.
