Watch Seth Meyers' fiery breakdown of how Trump's coronavirus failure exposes a broken government

Mashable - Tue, 04/07/2020 - 08:30

Seth Meyers' A Closer Look segment on Monday night is a long one at 20 minutes, but it's worth it. The Late Night host traces the wasted time between Trump's February claim that the coronavirus pandemic would "disappear by April," and — well, actual April. 11,000 Americans have died of COVID-19, and millions more are without income as their employers shut down. On top of this, the U.S. government is making it as difficult as possible to access support. For example, telling people to find a fax machine to apply for unemployment.

"This is not some accident of history. There's a reason you can get a package of alcohol wipes from Amazon in 48 hours but to apply from unemployment benefits from the government you have to download MS-DOS," Meyers says. Read more...

Unfortunately not every state official is taking the coronavirus threat seriously, with Georgia governor Brian Kemp making the "stupid and crazy" decision to reopen all the beaches.

"That would be like a teenager deciding not to go to a house party, and then his dad saying, 'No, you will go to that party, you will drink too much Jägermeister, and you will try to jump over the bonfire to impress the seniors,'" Late Show host Stephen Colbert pointed out on Monday. "'And if there is no vomit on your shoes when you come back there will be hell to pay, young man.'" Read more...
