The coronavirus outbreak has brought with it a number of shot/chasers featuring fast one-eighties from journalists and pundits, and here’s another to add to the list:

The shot, with Frum criticizing President Trump for referring to coronavirus as the “invisible enemy”:
We are learning much about the Invisible Enemy. It is tough and smart, but we are tougher and smarter!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 5, 2020
The virus is not an enemy. It does not care about us at all.
This isn't a war. Military analogies are at best ludicrously incongruous, at worst dangerously false.
— David Frum (@davidfrum) April 5, 2020
And the chaser from a couple weeks ago:
On present trajectory, by April 12 Coronavirus will have killed more Americans than died in the Korean War. https://t.co/aKmhgABzAo

The opinions of pundits in the era of Trump can turn on a dime.
Ludicrously incongruous indeed.
