BREAKING: Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro says he has tested positive for COVID-19.
 
Bolsonaro often downplayed the virus’ severity, appearing in public to shake hands with supporters and mingle with crowds, at times without a mask. He has said that his history as an athlete would shield him from the virus.

“This virus is like the rain, it’s going to get you,” a masked President Bolsonaro told reporters Tuesday after revealing he is infected. Then he echoed earlier calls for Brazilians to get back to work. “Life goes on, Brazil has to produce.”

We live in an age where any sort of deprivation is considered to be a "get-out-of-jail-free" card, to excuse evil or criminal acts. There is altogether too much forgiveness and understanding around. Let's hope the book doesn't usher in an age of sympathy for the man.

"Too MUCH forgiveness"?  Yeah, I get what you mean.  And playing the "past family dysfunction and trauma" card as an excuse for present  misfeasance  is something usually used as a "liberal" argument that it's interesting to see whether or not some of Trump's "enablers" leap on it before they think.  ;)

Fox News last night: "Sweden was smart"
 
NY Times today: "Sweden Has Become the World’s Cautionary Tale... Not only have thousands more people died than in neighboring countries that imposed lockdowns, but Sweden’s economy has fared little better."

When I was younger, I believed in the adage, "To understand is to forgive." I seem to have grown out of that attitude, at least to some extent. Sometimes, when a public figure says or does something wrong, an apology is demanded of them, and a big fuss is made if they won't apologize. I don't care about apologies! I want them not to have done the thing in the first place, or else suffer the consequences and punishment for what they did.

With the national debate over memorials to Confederate leaders intensifying, Democrats are targeting statues, military installation names and other commemorations of these officials in several federal spending bills and calling for their removal.

True.  And it does seem too, that some feel an apology somehow makes everything all better. But, it does help if that apology is quick to come without weeks of public demand for it, and is made only to the wronged party or parties.

If Donald Trump had lived through all of this and overcame the adversity to become a better person there might be a story there.  But with his horrible personality becoming the President of the United States and the most powerful person on earth was absolutely the worst thing that could have happened to him.  It was like putting a 500 pound man in a cake shop and telling him to go crazy.

EXCLUSIVE: The Daily Beast has obtained Mary Trump’s tell-all book. It reveals new details that paint her uncle in a horrifying light revealing explosive comments about his character.
 
One shocking anecdote describes a scene from a trip to Mar-a-Lago. Mary recounts being 29 years old and wearing a bathing suit and a pair of shorts to lunch at the resort, when her uncle looked up at her and remarked “Holy ****, Mary. You’re stacked.”

The book also publishes intimate and damning thoughts from retired federal court judge Maryanne Trump Barry about her brother, whom she reportedly blames for the death of Fred Trump Jr. 

“He’s a clown,” Maryanne allegedly confided to her niece.

What about Donald Trump’s religious affiliations? 

According to the book, Maryanne, a devout Catholic, said “The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there. It’s mind-boggling. He has no principles. None!”

Mary describes President Trump as a textbook narcissist who saw cheating “as a way of life.”

The book will be released this month after the date was moved up a week due to “extraordinary interest.”
