I am thinking of changing the title of this column to “Dispatches from Hell,” because I truly feel like every week is just another barrage of awful news stories, most of them with Trump at the center.
And SO MANY PEOPLE ARE DYING! And the Trump Administration’s current messaging on COVID-19, even as some states are rapidly reaching peak levels, is, “Let’s be more racist.” I did, though, want to give a shout-out to the brave woman in Arizona who ransacked a mask display at her local Target and filmed it all to inspire us all.
And I am definitely inspired — inspired to declare that anti-maskers are the fucking worst. It’s been a while since I did a meat-and-potatoes “Creep” column because of the country being on fire and all.
