Rob Long joins today’s podcast as we consider the question of how the public will react to Donald Trump’s leadership in the long term—will he be given credit for making hard choices or will he be so associated with the virus that America is going to want to turn the page? Plus, Hollywood takes advantage of the virus to reset itself, and Tiger King. Give a listen.

    Flattening the curve – the same number of people still get sick – but over a longer time period. IF these numbers in TOTAL are smaller than a bad flu season, then these extreme measures would have been for nothing.

    I think the “Chinese Market access” Blackmail has run its course. Western companies are not ever going to get unfettered access to the Chinese market. We should have long ago realized this, and stopped bending over to willingly take a hit up the pipe, today for the tantalizing idea of profits some years down the road. Out elitists have been duped, lets take the loss and write off China.

    You want a casting coup? Donald Trump, as Donald Trump, in President Donald Trump, the Motion Picture. They can use CGI to de-age him. Tell me that this couldn’t happen.

    That’s what I thought too! I’m pretty sure he could be convinced to do it.
