Testing, 1, 2, 3, testing…

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred, on 14 Marlins player/staff testing positive for COVID-19 – “I don’t put this in the nightmare category.”

Would Manfred like to tell us what he considers the “nightmare category?”

14 Marlins testing positive for COVID-19. Likely originally infected during “Summer Camp” in Miami, or during exhibition game in Atlanta. So Gov. Ron DeSantis and Gov. Brian Kemp may have done to baseball what they’ve done to their states.

Minnesota Vikings say their trainer and “Infection Control Officer” has tested positive for COVID-19.

If you were doing a disaster movie about sports during pandemic, having a team’s “Infection Control Officer” test positive for the disease would be a time to cue the really ominous music.

Notre Dame has withdrawn from hosting first Presidential debate. When they don’t even think prayer will keep them safe….

Melania Trump will renovate the Rose Garden. Apparently it doesn’t look enough like Versailles.
Remember when Dana Carvey mocked George H. W. Bush regularly on SNL & Bush invited him to White House? Remember when Tina Fey mocked Sarah Palin regularly & Palin even joined her on SNL?
But Donald Trump is crying  it’s “really ridiculous, illegal, and, of course, very unfair!”  because because he can’t even take negative things trending for a day on Twitter?
Glenn Beck says his kids had COVID-19, and he expects to get it but “the doctor was like, ‘You have a, you know, bad immune system, blah blah blah, you have, you know, immune problems. And I was like eh, ehhh.” My better angels are sheltering in place on this one.
Trump’s casket  will never lie in state in the Capitol rotunda.
But of course Donald himself will lie everywhere. 
New studies indicate that even for those not hospitalized with COVID-19’s, some survivors could have lasting damage to their hearts. Which won’t worry Trump & many of his GOP supporters. You can’t damage what you don’t have.
