What’s our strategy for beating Trump in November? Is the Coronavirus making that easier, or harder? E.J. Dionne analyzes the effect of the virus on politics—he’s a columnist for the Washington Post, and his new book is Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite to Save Our Country.

Also: How the coronavirus is changing the issues, and the tactics, of Black Lives Matter—a conversation with Melina Abdullah, one of the founders of the LA chapter and a professor of Pan-African Studies at Cal State LA.

Plus: Katha Pollitt has some recommendations about what to watch, and read, during those days at home: starting with the classics.
