‘How to Medical’ — A Time Capsule

November 22, 2020

Interview with the great Sarah Cooper this afternoon at the Guardian, and a good handle on the way-down, real-scary threat from the T-Rump:

“I feel that Trump has bigger fish to fry than Sarah Cooper. I think he has got stuff on his plate and so I’m not super worried that he will come after me. But if he had won again, I would be very… I would be terrified. If he had won, and they kept control of the Senate, we would be going into a fascist state. I told my sister, they would be flying Trump flags with the American flag, and I think I would’ve had to start pretending I loved Trump. I think we’d all have to start pretending we loved Trump.”

She isn’t celebrating his demise just yet, though. She says she can’t truly relax “until Biden has raised his hand and is taking the oath”, and adds that, “if an employee gets fired for doing something bad, you usually escort them out of the building and take away their passwords. But this is a two-month notice period, and the idea that he still has access to everything…”

12:01 p.m. Jan. 20, 2021, the ‘taking the oath’ timeframe.
Cooper is a treasure. Read the whole Guardian piece, she’s really terrific.
And why is this so right-on, frigging-fracking crazy:

A smile/gentle laugh in a time of virus exposing the ignorant-idiotic monster of our age.
