Bonus news from the age of pandemic

A few links that didn’t make it into yesterday’s post —

Trump and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer locked horns. Now she says vendors who’ve contracted with the state to provide medical supplies are backing out. The right-wing is on Trump’s side.

Part of the deal reached on the stimulus bill was that it provided oversight for the billions going out to businesses. Trump’s just going to ignore that. And the EPA is going to help businesses by not enforcing environmental law.

Right-wing bullshit artist Candace Owens insists we should just accept “some people will die” instead of government doing anything. And Isaac Chotiner interviews law professor Richard Epstein about his theory that coronavirus is no big — because who knows better than a lawyer about this stuff, right? — and rips it to shreds.

It’s commendable that Trump sent personal protective equipment to China to help deal with coronavirus … except he did it while he was denying the problem here, and now we have a shortage.

And the AP debunks coronavirus myths.

And here we Superman social-distancing when he becomes contagious. Art by Curt Swan.
