I’m an enthusiast for Trump’s attacks on bad showerheads and low-flow faucets and toilets. Six months ago, he was just getting warmed up to the topic when the virus and lockdowns arrived and derailed both the US economy and his reelection prospects. He has revived these funny attacks on bad appliances in what seems like an homage to American life before Covid-19.
At the same time, one wonders about the timing of this theme. It appears almost as if he is unwilling now to talk about the terrible reality of what’s happened to this country. A bit of frankness about the last four months of hell might be in order. It can’t be wished away.
