The Memorial Day holiday has a new meaning this year, as the official US death toll from COVID-19 reaches 100,000 – and all 50 states join outliers in the South on re-opening their economies after weeks of coronavirus economic shutdown. New cases are already spiking back up in some communities that re-opened; the first wave never waned in others. MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss how the patchwork spread of the coronavirus makes it so difficult to contain, not to mention how the president encourages the right wing to look at containment measures like masks as just another salvo in the “culture war.” The MOMocrats will also talk about new developments in the IG scandal, the collapse of Trump’s “Obamagate” talking points, Joe Biden’s shortlist for Vice President, and the arrest of a third suspect in Ahmaud Arbery’s murder.
