What Trump Knew and When He Knew It

What did Trump know about the Coronavirus? It was the biggest national security threat of his presidency and far worse than anyone imagined.

When did he know it? January 28, 2020

Why did he not speak up then?

“I wanted to always play it down,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward on March 19. “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

The New York Times, September 9, 2020

When did Trump finally speak the truth about the virus to the American people, including all of those who have pinned their hope on him? Today is September 10, 2020 and we are still waiting.

I had only one nerve left and Trump has finally gotten on it. That’s all I can handle today. More over the weekend.

In the meantime, in case you run into Trump in the grocery store…

Tom Klaus is the Driveler. On March 16, 2020, the first day of the Novel Coronavirus shelter-in-place order for his state, he started writing a daily blog to keep himself from stressing too much about the pandemic situation. He thought the daily blogging would last for only a couple of week but it stretched on to 77 consecutive days. Then he continued writing daily for a while after that as well. At some point the blog became The Daily Drivel...mostly because he was mostly writing the stream of consciousness drivel that was pouring out of his head, running down his face, and, sometimes, out of his mouth. In November 2020 he launched The Daily Drivel as a free-standing website/blog.
