Knowing everything we know about Donald Trump, would it really be shocking to learn he has possibly sabotaged the country by blocking our ability to test for the coronavirus?
So now might be a good time to read Naomi Klein’s book The Shock Doctrine. It centers on “the exploitation of national crises to push through controversial policies while citizens are too emotionally and physically distracted by disasters or upheavals to mount an effective resistance.” The book was made into a documentary and is available on YouTube.
But we digress. Here we learn that there are test kits available that would allow us to test tens of thousands a day that we are not using because they are waiting for FDA approval.
And not coincidentally, there is this story by NPR saying that Trump blocked coronavirus testing to help his reelection chances. Shock shock.
