Time was the president of the United States baselessly accusing a prominent journalist of murder would be a major news story instead of just Tuesday. The degree of national degradation we've experienced in three and a half years is unfathomable.

Donald Trump just doesn't understand: We have an economic crisis because we have a public health crisis — and we have a public health crisis because he failed to act.
