Trump is on a state visit to India right now, and in news conferences, he has been bragging about his reception there while downplaying the coronavirus in a completely flailing way that demonstrates he doesn’t have a clue what’s happening or how to address it. Meanwhile:
Stop what you’re doing, watch this video & read about what’s happening in India.
As Trump and Modi parade across the country, mobs are openly attacking Muslims, looting their businesses & desecrating houses of worship just like you see in this video.pic.twitter.com/ouMXwXMsVg

Good people are trying to protect their neighbors:
In one part of Delhi, a gurdwara opens its doors to Muslims and anyone who needs shelter.
In Seelampur, Dalits blocked the roads against mobs, sheltered their Muslim neighbours.
Police and politicians have forgotten their duty; but the people have courage and heart.#DelhiRiots

As we know, the good people don’t always win. But we damn well better try, here, there and everywhere. Things are getting ugly.
Sorry to be Debbie Downer, but here we are. Open thread.
