“You only moved the headstones!”

After watching Trump brief the nation on the coronavirus today, I’m reminded of Steve Freeling, played by Craig T. Nelson, in the 1982 film, Poltergeist, when Steve grabs the greedy, corrupt Mr. Teague, played by James Karen, and yells, “You only moved the headstones!” That’s kinda what Trump is doing, he’s only moving small elements for optics, while the truth, magnitude, scope, and seriousness of this pandemic is basically glossed over by a President, concerned with his own self preservation, over the stark realization that, the nation, must engage in testing, and its citizens engage in self-isolation.
