SUMMARY BY WEST COAST SLIPPERS (ghostwritten by East Coast Slippers): EC tries to make two points: 1. Although Trump’s popularity is creeping up, if he had acted even a little bit presidential he would likely be much higher (due to the well recognized “Rally Effect”); and, 2. Trump’s plan to have his followers all mix together in church on Easter Sunday sounds like a public health disaster. WC gamely plays The Devil’s Advocate role for which many of us have come to love him. Only a little fur flies and the lads agree to come back another day to keep trying to sort it all out.
The two articles that are the focus of this episode are this one about the Rally Effect; and, this one about what is likely to happen if we try to “Reopen America.”
