Dennis Quaid Believes Trump Is ‘Doing a Good Job' Handling Coronavirus
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photo Getty"Is it as dire as we see on television?" asks Dennis Quaid.

The veteran all-American actor, who's starred in everything from The Right Stuff and The Parent Trap to Any Given Sunday, is phoning me from the Hollywood Hills, where he's holed up with his fiancée Laura Savoie. He's curious about the situation in New York City, where I am, which has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, with at least 74,601 cases and 3,544 deaths as of Tuesday morning.

Back in 2007, following the near-death of his 10-day-old twins, who were accidentally administered 1,000 times the regular dosage of the blood-thinner heparin at a hospital, the actor became an outspoken patient-safety advocate, testifying on Capitol Hill and producing a number of documentaries about the health-care system, so he finds the current crisis very troubling, though maintains that Donald Trump's been doing a "good job" handling it—a point that we very much disagree on.

Trump Fires Inspectors General as He Grows Insular and Paranoid in His Coronavirus Response
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastAs the coronavirus has engulfed his presidency, Donald Trump has grown insular and paranoid, retreating to the comfort zones he's enjoyed at other scandal points in office and lashing out against perceived foes with a mix of defiance and impetuousness.

In recent days, Trump has ousted and denigrated inspectors general at various government agencies tasked with holding his administration accountable as it oversees a massive economic and public health response to the pandemic. It's a move that has alarmed congressional critics who see the president as increasingly unmoored from a system of checks and balances, and perhaps emboldened by his own impeachment, for which he was acquitted. 

"President Trump has engaged in a series of actions designed to prevent or neuter any kind of oversight over his actions and misconduct," said House Intel Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA), who led the impeachment inquiry, in a statement to The Daily Beast. "I don't think anyone should be surprised, because he's telegraphed that he will reject any kind of accountability. But the fact that he would do this in the middle of a national crisis, when the health and safety of the American people are at stake and trillions of dollars are being allocated to help, is a new and dangerous low."

Fox's Brian Kilmeade: ‘I Salute Wisconsin' for Holding In-Person Voting During Pandemic
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday applauded the state of Wisconsin for holding an in-person election as scheduled despite stay-at-home orders, wondering what the "big deal" was with waiting in long lines during the coronavirus pandemic.

Given concerns over social distancing, the Wisconsin Democratic governor attempted to get the election postponed, only to have the state's conservative-majority high court overrule him on Monday. The governor's decree to extend the deadline for absentee ballots into June was also overruled, this time by the U.S. Supreme Court. (All four liberal members of the court dissented.)

Kilmeade, however, felt that the state should be saluted for forcing its residents to brave a deadly outbreak if they want their votes to be counted.

Biden: Voting in Wisconsin Is Safe. Locals: It Could Kill Us
GettyAs the fate of Wisconsin's primary volleyed between the state's Democratic governor, its Republican-led legislature, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the man who appears set to win the election scheduled to take place on Tuesday has avoided taking a hard stance on the wisdom of holding the lone contest in April not to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"There's a lot of things that can be done; that's for the Wisconsin courts and folks to decide," former Vice President Joe Biden said last Thursday in a virtual press briefing, in which he insisted that in-person and mail-in voting could both be done safely—even though he considers the possibility of a national convention in the state to be a potential risk to public health.

"A convention having tens of thousands of people in one arena is very different than having people walk into a polling booth with accurate spacing with 6 to 10 feet apart, one at a time going in, and having the machines scrubbed down," Biden said. "I think you could hold the election as well dealing with mail-in ballots and same-day registration. I think it could be done… but that's for them to decide."
