The Purell Presidency

Trump was a self-declared germaphobe before it was cool.

And as perhaps the only thing about the current situation about which he has shown any prescience, the irony runs rich, and the related issues deep.

Not that this is news.

As Politico reporter, Daniel Lippman, gathered many months ago, the President's penchant for Purell is legendary. Indeed, Lippman describes Trump's strict enforcement of in and out-of-house hygiene as something akin to his Bright Red Line.

This from the same person who believes disease can be simply ordered away, as though he were pulling through a drive through, and commanding the appearance of fries with that.
