    Worldwide, there have now been 118,632 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus and 4,269 deaths. In the United States, 950 people have been infected and 30 have died. The Presidential candidates won't be shaking people's hands for a while.

    King Donald the First has very few positive accomplishments he can tout to voters so his re-election strategy will consist of spewing cruel, nasty accusations against his opponent. By the way, Biden is only three and a half years older than King Donald – and, unlike King Donald, he's not a vain, pompous, narcissistic, egotistical, irrational, immature, thin-skinned, crooked, corrupt, dishonest, deranged, delusional lunatic.

    Trump and GOP mount coordinated campaign to paint Biden as senile
    The President settles on a schoolyard strategy to take out his likely general election opponent.

    Six states are holding their Democratic primaries today. CNN is projecting Joe Biden will win the three states where the polls are now closed. Right now he leads Sanders 53.1% to 40.6% in Michigan, 58.5% to 30.6% in Missouri and 80.3% to 15.7% in Mississippi. Polls are still open in Idaho, Washington and North Dakota.

    The COVID-19 virus is spreading rapidly – but not nearly as fast as the panic, paranoia and over-reacting. For example, Democratic debaters won't be able to take questions from the audience. There won't be an audience.

    To win the Democratic Presidential nomination, a candidate needs 1,991 pledged delegates. Biden now has 812 and Sanders has 655, according to CNN. Biden has 812 and Sanders has 671, according to Fox News. They can't both be correct. The Northern Mariana Islands caucus takes place March 14 and the Arizona primary will be held March 17.

    With 69% of the vote counted in Washington, Sanders leads Biden 32.7% to 32.6%. In Idaho, with 47% of the vote in, Biden leads Sanders 46.6% to 39.9%. In North Dakota, with 32% of the vote in, Sanders leads Biden 44% to 32%.

    Joe Biden has won Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi and is projected to win Idaho. Bernie Sanders has won North Dakota. In Washington, where all voting is done by mail and it will take several days for the count to be completed, Sanders leads Biden 32.8% to 32.6%. If that margin holds, Sanders will get 45 of the state's pledged delegates and Biden will get 44. Right now, Biden has 859 delegates and Sanders has 709. Bernie says he is not dropping out of the race and will take part in the upcoming debate – the one without an audience because of coronavirus fears – but he admitted, "While our campaign has won the ideological debate, we are losing the debate over electability."

    A CNN investigation discovered that Russian trolls are creating fake social-media accounts for the purpose of sowing racial discord and provoking social unrest. Yes, in 2020 they're doing the same things they did in 2016 – but now they're operating in Ghana and Nigeria (and claiming to be in the United States). Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are doing their best to identify and delete all the fake posts and fake accounts.

    Russian election meddling is back – via Ghana and Nigeria – and in your feeds

    Almost every sporting event in the United States has been canceled or postponed because of COVID-19 fears. What is next, you ask? Elections.

    Nine former 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates have endorsed Joe Biden for President. Only two, Bill de Blasio and self-help guru Marianne Williamson, are endorsing Bernie Sanders. Biden has now gotten the endorsement of the largest labor union in the United States.

    Yesterday, Louisiana postponed its upcoming Presidential primary. Today, Georgia followed suit. If several more states do this, it's inevitable that someone will propose allowing people to phone their votes in.
