    Trump ties coronavirus decisions to personal grievances

    President Trump is a commander in chief dealing with a coronavirus outbreak in which many difficult decisions have to be made. And on Friday, he seemed to suggest some of those decisions could be made according to who has run afoul of him personally.

    Appearing at the daily White House briefing, Trump disclosed that he has told Vice President Pence, who is leading the coronavirus task force, not to call the governors of Michigan and Washington state because those governors had been critical of Trump and the federal response.

    “When they’re not appreciative to me, they’re not appreciative to the Army Corps, they’re not appreciative to FEMA, it’s not right,” Trump said.

    He then added: “I say, ‘Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington; you’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan. It doesn’t make any difference what happens.’ You know what I say: ‘If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call.’ He’s a different type of person; he’ll call quietly anyway.”

    But Whitmer did suggest Friday that something had changed with the federal response in her state and indicated she felt it was related to her criticism of it.

    “What I’ve gotten back is that vendors with whom we had contracts are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan," she said. "It’s really concerning.”

    Maybe he's just been feeding you more and more rope, all along.

    And now you're suddenly concerned about everything it's all wrapped around.

    1. Why in Hades should VP Pence waste time listening to goobernors' political diatribes?

    2. Where did Trump say aid would not be sent to those states?
