It’s incredible how this can be said with absolutely zero evidence supporting it one way or another. People wanna know why science is no longer trusted? It’s because with Covid we’ve thrown out every single basic tenet of viruses and immunity and based all policy around whatever was the worst outcome even if it was unlikely.
The issue here is a bit different from what you describe. The issue is that the media can't be trusted and they are the medium through which so much of this information folters to the masses.

Absolute power grab. IMO, the only political upside is if he has no intention of running in the state anymore and is focused on posturing for a national election.

Good morning

The chidush isn't that he has national aspirations; it's that he's willing to risk reelection in 2022.
