I was curious what it would look like if we took daily new coronavirus case peaks/highs and compared that to how recently the peaks were hit. It looks like this.
After the jobs numbers came out, Trump quickly called a press conference to celebrate all the records that were set. What he didn't mention is why those records were possible â€"Â and how far there is to go.
Trump's celebration of the jobs numbers ignores that they were measured near the recent low in new coronavirus cases.
Trump: Biden has people write things for him, which is bad.
The White House: Of course Trump opposes racism, didnâ€™t you see the prepares statements he read?

On the 17 prior occasions he's said that, the number of new cases two weeks later has been more likely to have increased than on any other random day.
So far, candidates who've used QAnon hashtags or engaged more directly with the conspiracy theories have garnered more than 580,000 votes in Republican primaries.
Why Q is so well-suited for the politics of the moment.
Trump's tweets about Fox's ratings are bizarre in their own right, but particularly because they mostly just show the limits of Trump's base of support.
Fauciâ€™s prediction of a possible 100,000 new infections a day is dire, but, then, so is the recent growth in new cases.
Pew asked the same people in March and June if they approved of Trump's job performance as president.
Over that period 1-in-6 of those who'd approved of Trump switched their views of him. 45% of that group lived in areas hardest-hit by covid.
The Russian bounty story forces us to consider the effects of a number of the idiosyncrasies of Trump's presidency: his approach to receiving information, his approach to foreign policy and, of course, his relationship with Russia and Putin.
If your only source of coronavirus news is Trump's Twitter feed, you just consumed an entirely inaccurate claim about the rate of positive tests in the U.S.
In a Post-ABC poll from last September, the group most likely to say they lived in a home with a gun was wealthier Republicans.
The Trump campaign released a memo meant to rebut the idea that his poll numbers suggest defeat. It deploys tricks like citing polls from media outlets ... and then disparaging polls from media outlets.

Trump's invocation of Paterson, N.J.'s questionable election last month doesn't really tell the story he wants it to.
So what's happening with the coronavirus pandemic? Allow me to explain, in nine charts of varying complexity.
Pence: Listen to federal, state and local authorities.
Reporter: What about wearing masks?
Under Barr, the DOJ's unusual defenses of people close to Trump are obvious. But Barr's reported focus on the Michael Cohen case is different: It is an attempt to undercut a law which still poses a direct legal threat to Trump.
Trump's inability to tell Hannity why he wants another four years prompted me to look and see if he's answered that question in the past. And, guys?
Trump's campaign has put a heavy emphasis on convincing black voters of what he's done for them. Thanks to Post polling in January and now, we can evaluate how well that's gone.
Trump's big speech in Jacksonville next month might just have gotten a little awkward.
Come for the rejection of Larry Kudlow's repeated insistences that increased coronavirus cases are fluky hotspots. Stay for the map-charts of how case totals have changed over the last month in each state.
Over the span of 20 seconds on March 13, 2019, America became great.
At some point likely on March 3 of this year, it lost that status.
A coalition of blue states announced voluntary quarantines for visitors from mostly red states, reinforcing how the pandemic has shifted. But looking more closely, the overlap of politics and new cases is hazier.
Trump's had a rough week. Last night and this morning, things got worse.
Quinnipiac released a poll last week looking at views of Trump and it is staggering the extent to which things have remained constant despite the turmoil and tumult of the year.
How indefensible was Trump's use of "kung flu"? McEnany tried to defend him on something else entirely.
Since June 16, when Pence pointed to "stabilizing" coronavirus cases as evidence that things were going well, the daily average of new cases is up 18 percent.
Clearly eager to combat a narrative last week that he was struggling, Trump and his team broke a key rule of campaigning.
