The single most damning quote about Donald Trump and coronavirus yet

 In The New York Times' Sunday opus on how cracks are emerging between President Donald Trump and the broader Republican Party in how to handle the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, a single quote stands out.
"The President got bored with it," Dave Carney, a longtime Republican strategist who advises Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, told the Times.
That is a stunning admission from anyone. But most especially from someone like Carney, who isn't part of the "Never Trump" movement and isn't the sort to just pop off to impress media types or his fellow consultants.
And a look back at Trump's response to the virus absolutely validates Carney's view. In the early months of 2020, Trump downplayed the virus -- repeatedly.
