The first of May is traditionally a celebration of spring and the coming of summer – but for those of us in COVID-19 hot spots, it’s just a continuation of monotonous days hunkered down at home to slow down the spread of the virus.

That does not mean there aren’t signs of life. As of this writing, 21 states have eased or lifted their most stringent stay-at-home orders (some without regard to the fact that infections are still increasing). And with the economy a shambles, even the 80% of Americans who support coronavirus quarantines are anxious to get back some semblance of normalcy. MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about this week’s pandemic news, quarantine cabin fever – and political stories that have little to do with the coronavirus: the president’s determination to rehabilitate the reputation of Mike Flynn, the new Press Secretary’s first press conference, the search for a Biden running mate… and how the media hasn’t learned a thing from their missteps in 2016.
