REASSESSING TRUMP AND COVID: It's hard to exaggerate the anger, criticism, and vitriol directed toward then-President Trump last year for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. If for some reason you need a reminder, just search for "Trump" and "blood on his hands."
But now something interesting is happening. In the last few days, among some commentators following the COVID crisis, we're seeing the beginning of a sense of perspective about the way the Trump administration battled the virus. The bottom line is: Of course the crisis was awful, but on balance, overall, the United States handled it as well or better than many of the world's most advanced countries.
The campaign is over for the time being, evidently.
