That's because like me and most retirees he has no change in his income and not hurting financially because of this virus!
And, cuz I'm still relatively young and able-bodied, I werk about 30 hours a week in what is considered an essential industry. Double dipping for sure. Oh yeah, I'm also collecting CPP, triple dipping.

Psychological Science Says Trump Is a Four Year Old

What's so special about Trump? Looking for the source of Trump’s odd appeal.



As a result, the gut sense one gets watching Trump is that something does not jell; something chafes; something is happening, to quote Dylan, but you don’t know what it is. The experience of observing Trump is akin to that of noticing the strangeness of a painting from the Middle Ages before realizing that the oddity is due to the fact that the children are depicted with adult body proportions.
And therein lies the key: the core Trump dissonance is that he’s an elderly man who possesses the outward appearance and trappings of adulthood—and who occupies the public role we most strongly associate with adulthood—but who is on the inside predominantly infantile. It is that specific dissonance that is wholly novel on the political scene.
Over and above the contested considerations of ideology, temperament, character, or intelligence, we all expect (and are used to) a modicum of maturity in our presidents. In our collective imagination the president is a grownup, not a child; not immature in his fundamental bearing and cast of mind. Trump is, and as such he dramatically violates both our experience and our cultural expectations. He calls up the incongruent fascination and dread of a child-king, or the baby-faced assassin.
To say trump is ‘infantile,’ in this context is to say two related yet distinct things: 1. That he fails to demonstrate some behavioral and attitudinal quality we call ‘maturity,’ and 2. That his cast of mind, the way he processes information, appears qualitatively different from an adult mind.
