Probably the most tired genre of commentary about the Trumps is the “what if Obama did x” observation, but god damn sometimes you just have to write it up.
Case in point: Ivanka Trump, failson-in-law Jared and their kids defied distancing guidelines and celebrated Passover at Trump’s golf club in New Jersey. New Jersey has been hit hard, and they’re still climbing up the curve. No matter — these two morons and their spawn had to go to the golf club, presumably to hang out with a bunch of MAGA yarmulkes and perhaps get infected.
Imagine if this pandemic had come about in 2015 instead of 2019. Every move the Obamas made would be scrutinized. “Did Sasha and Malia walk Bo too close to the White House fence yesterday and endanger the health of Washington, DC — an NBC News Special Report.” “Should Barack and Michelle be sleeping in separate bedrooms for the good of the country? By Maggie Haberman, exclusive to the Times, must credit the Times.”
In other New Jersey news, Andrew Cuomo announced today that New York is sending 100 ventilators there, because we have no federal government, and the states are banding together to help each other out.
