AINSWORTH: HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH MICHELLE
Now it's Jill Biden. Why would they just keep floating this idea if it wasn't going anywhere?
GREAT READER COMMENT ON TRUMP CRITICS
Regarding the second-guessing about whether we should have shut down the whole country that will come (already has in some cases), I learned in Vietnam, and again in Iraq, second-guessing is second nature to some folks. In both wars, we would provide intelligence to commanders that an attack was planned for a certain base and a certain time period. The commanders would then undertake very visible upgrades to their defense, readily observed by the enemy, and if an attack did not come, they would deride the intelligence unit instead of saying that they had deterred the attack by their defensive upgrade efforts. I guarantee, at some point Democrats will say the shut-down was unnecessary, and Trump did it for his own self-gain, and the damage to the economy was Trump's fault.
From the Gov:
Anything they can twist to make the President's choices seem at fault, you know they will. They would never have given him credit for the fabulous economy we had pre-virus, but they’ll hang this on him for sure. It won't even have to make sense. Thanks, Lawrence, for being such an astute observer of human nature and writing in.
FACTORY WORKERS VS. AOC
Terrific Article: A closer look at two kinds of Americans, two ways to be a human being, and two paths you can choose from: quiet, selfless, heroic and responsible…or resentful, angry and entitled. They were both on stark display in recent news stories. Which would you rather be, or have your children follow?
As Americans chomp at the bit to get back to work, our “Huckabee” team has continued working under tough conditions to bring you new shows every week, and we have another great one tonight on TBN! We’ll visit with Roger Stone, who is finally free to talk about his trial. Rep. Matt Gaetz will fill us in on the latest battles in Congress to get aid to Americans without letting Democrats attach their political agenda to it. ABC correspondent Paula Ferris will discuss balancing faith, family and career. Pastor and bestselling author Max Lucado will tell us how “we’ll get through this.” We’ll also laugh with comedian Rahn Hortman, and cap it off with music from country superstar Clint Black.
All that and more is in store for you tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

Here is Friday’s White House press briefing on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus.
It was a short, but very news-packed briefing. The major points: we have now topped 5 million tests, numbers of new infections and deaths are trending downward, states are getting ready to reopen for business, President Trump signed the bill adding new funding to aid small businesses, and the FDA has approved an at-home test for the virus that lets people swab themselves and send it to a lab for testing. Also, Trump didn’t take questions because the media absolutely beclowned themselves after the previous briefing. More on that later. I can’t consider their hysterical antics to be “news” anymore.
Also, in case you missed it, last night, I filled in for Sean Hannity hosting his Fox News TV show, to take a look at the coronavirus and how both the disease and the reactions to it are damaging America. You can watch the full episode here.
We talked about the way that Democrats are trying to extort Republicans into paying for the bad policies of blue state governments as part of the emergency relief bills. They’ve long dreamed of sticking American taxpayers with the cost of covering their unsustainable public worker pensions, entitlement programs and green energy schemes, and now they’re claiming that if we tell them to declare bankruptcy instead of bailing them out, it’s tantamount to wanting the people of those states to die. Take a look at the New York Congress member at around the 3:30 mark, accusing Mitch McConnell of telling first responders to “drop dead,” and tell me he doesn’t remind you of this.
If you watched the sitcom “Friends,” you’ll recognize the Democrats' "bail out blue states" tactic. Remember when Ross’s dad offered to help pay for his wedding, and his fiancee’s dad tried to stick him with the bill for everything from landscaping his lawn to building a new wine cellar? Well, that guy is the Democrats’ and Ross’s dad is all of us taxpayers.
As liberal Rep. James Clyburn openly admitted, the Democrats see this crisis as an historic opportunity to impose their agenda of transforming America. They seem to think that to fight a virus, we need to bail out blue states, raise the minimum wage, pass the Green New Deal, institute voting by mail with no ID, bar people from going to church and declare abortions to be an essential medical procedure. As they often say at the Instapundit site, It’s amazing how the answer to every crisis is to do everything they’ve always wanted to do.
Back in Reality Land, here’s what is actually in the bill that Trump signed.
Here’s what relying on computer models gets you: Houston, Texas, spent $17 million to build a makeshift hospital (where some officials were paid over $2000 a day!) to handle the predicted overflow of coronavirus patients. It’s now likely to be closed down without ever having served a single patient.
The bright side for Houston, aside from there not being the predicted crush of sick residents, is that the federal government will pick up 75% of the cost. But if you’re a taxpayer, that’s also the downside for you.
Now, tell me more about how we need to dismantle the entire world economy and social structure because some computer models are predicting what the temperature will be a hundred years from how.
OUR SUPERIORS IN WASHINGTON
See members of Congress demonstrate how not to wear a mask, and watch Nancy Pelosi, who blames President Trump personally for the spread of the virus, speak into a shared microphone without a mask, wipe her nose, then put her hand on a shared podium. We may need to ask the Pentagon to carpet-bomb the House with Lysol.
