Following the usual conservative pattern of "it's not real unless it happens to me," Chris Christie admits he was wrong not to wear a mask:
Chris Christie urges Americans to wear masks to fight the coronavirus that put him in ICU for 7 days, warning that the virus is "something to take very seriously." https://t.co/kvGx7HRygG.

#MorningJoe. So Chris Christie has learned the hard way he should have worn a mask. Okaaaay. What has he learned about working to elect a president who still denies it, contributing to the deaths of 218,000 Americans?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy @GovChristie recovered. But it seriously bothers me people with his privilege can disregard guidelines in the middle of a global pandemic and then get special treatment when they get sick. 218,921 are dead. #MorningJoe

In the real world where they don't get special treatment and the best of care, both Donald Trump and Chris Christie are dead.

This execution of an antifa activist is getting lost in the chaos, but let's pick it up after the election. Maybe we can impeach him again.

Trump is probably lying about knowing their intent, but DOJ hasn’t denied it. Worse, he’s celebrating extrajudicial killing. It’s a window into what his administration’s policy will be if he wins a second term. In the absence of any other platform, murder is the GOP platform now. https://t.co/R9luMVaW24

NEW - Biden’s campaign looked into an endorsement from W, but it’s not coming. But if Biden wins and Trump causes chaos, Biden would lean on him to get involved.

My Trump hating aunt in TN has been exposed to Covid by her Trump-loving-tested-positive-son-in-law who refuses to wear a mask. Anyway she just asked if I would request people to pray for her. She said "even if they don't know me it might help." So if you pray, please do. 😊

A really excellent piece that helps explain why spending didn’t plummet when the $600 a week unemployment payments stopped. The benefits were large enough that families actually put away a month or two of savings. But they’ve been spending those down. https://t.co/q4qjtNVlQW
