The adult son of President Donald Trump spoke ahead of his father on Wednesday, during a rally held to protest the 2020 election and Congressional certification of Joe Biden’s victory. The Trump scion used much of his furious speech to swear political vengeance on Republicans who do not back his father and allies in their attempt to overthrow the election.
He then began to rail against a study suggesting transgender women perform better in female sports, screaming “No shit!” For whatever reason, Fox News chose that moment to cut away from Trump Jr.

He is telling us exactly what reelecting his father stands for: the proposition that the current level of viral spread, sickness, misery and death constitute an acceptable trade-off for resuming total normalcy and reaping the benefits of doing so, as if that were even possible amid pandemic conditions in the first place. Trump and his allies simply don’t think the current levels of cases and deaths are a big deal.
As Ed Yong writes at the Atlantic, the current course guarantees that “more Americans will be sickened, disabled, and killed.” But it doesn’t have to be this way: Shutting down nonessential indoor venues and improving ventilation can limit the number of super-spreading events.
Rapid tests and contact tracing can identify clusters of infection, which can be contained if people have the space and financial security to isolate themselves. Social interventions such as paid sick leave can give vulnerable people the option of protecting their lives without risking their livelihoods.
