President Trump and VP Mike Pence held a press conference this afternoon on what’s being done to help temper the spread of coronavirus. As for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, his “solution” to some of the problem is as predictable as it can be:

Is anybody surprised?

Yeah, we’re absolutely shocked as well.

And “the federal government handles things badly so we need to put the federal government in charge of more stuff” is a white-hot take coming from de Blasio.

Does Comrade Mayor ever actually listen to himself? We don’t think so.

And the examples of that come several times a day now.
