Fiddling While Rome Burns

 Via Tengrain, we have the story of Trump skipping out on a G20 summit discussion of COVID-19 preparedness.  Donald decided to fiddle while Rome burns, going to the golf course while the leaders of Germany, South Korea, Argentina, and France attempt to "foster international cooperation and to find solutions that protect people’s lives and livelihoods".   It's no big loss, Trump has absolutely nothing to contribute to such a discussion, with the US leading the world in COVID-19 deaths, and cases spiking nationwide.  I wouldn't expect a children's welfare agency to invite Ghislane Maxwell as a keynote speaker.

The real kicker is that he's billing the taxpayers for golf cart rentals to his Secret Service detail.  his farcical-and-tragic reign can't end soon enough.
