At The Denver Post, Ian Silverii contrasts reality and the MAGA Fantasy Land. A snippet:
In the alternative reality, which we’ll call the “MAGA universe”, COVID-19 is a hoax, a conspiracy, the “China Plague” or just another common cold. The hospitals aren’t overflowing, there are more than enough ICU beds and nurses and doctors to go around, and Americans aren’t going to let politicians tell us we can’t be with our families.

It isn’t working because public servants who take an oath to uphold the Constitution — those folks would be the Republicans in the U.S. Senate who used to care about such things as our democratic norms — are AWOL.
A federal judge has issued an injunction against the attempt to reframe the Voice of America as the voice of Trump.
My first thought was that these folks don’t understand the concept of the rule of law, but I think that’s wrong. I don’t think they understand the concept of law, at least not as something that applies to them.

At NJ.com, Luke Elliot explains Trump and the Trumpettes verify the unverifiable. A nugget:
To the cult of Trump, it does not matter that Trump lost the popular election and electoral votes. Since there is no objective truth in the cult, vetting is unnecessary. Make a claim, and then make up examples to support it. Cult Trump logic distorts the truth, but to many, the claims seem real because the people making them are powerful.
