That is the lesson derived by Seth Meyers as he looks at the non-stop flow of nonsense and dangerous false information peddled by Trump and the people in his administration, including his odious son-in-law Jared Kushner. He points to the fact that Trump actually brags at his press conferences about how successfully Mike Pence, the vice-president and the head of the coronavirus task force, avoids answering questions posed to him by journalists.
As an aside, Meyers was understandably incredulous that one government site required people to send faxes to get the benefits they were applying for. Faxes? Who the hell has access to a fax machine these days? It turns out not only government bureaucracies. Just a month ago, I was sent by regular mail a form by the office of the new doctor into whose practice I was enrolling. I was asked to either mail the completed form back or fax it. At my home I have a photocopying and scanning machine but not a fax. Even if I had a fax machine, I think I would need a land line phone to send a fax and I don’t have one and neither do an increasing number of homes. When I called and asked whether I couldn’t just scan it and send it as a pdf, I was told no. Then to get my medical records transferred from my old doctor’s office to my new one, I was again asked to fax the request to the old doctor’s office.
