Tribune News Service reports:
USPS is facing a historic volume of mail, which is swamping the postal service and other carriers as the pandemic drives people to shop online. According to the Washington Post, almost 19,000 of the agency’s 644,000 workers are under quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.
Some are criticizing Postmaster Louis DeJoy, who cut costs and did not run new policies by the Postal Regulatory Commission as Postmasters generally do, which led to delays. USPS also faced changes that slowed mail during the summer, a move a judge called “a politically motivated attack.”
“Postmaster DeJoy ruins Christmas for children who are already super traumatized by living through a pandemic” feels like a better headline. https://t.co/EcGlxifFeU

Thanks to @realDonaldTrump and Louis DeJoy @USPS for ensuring that millions of Americans will have late presents, cards, and holiday kindness, in a year when they desperately need connections with people they cannot be with.
On behalf of a hurting nation: to hell with you both.

Louis DeJoy, the grinch who stole Christmas (and tried to undermine our election). https://t.co/Nyj4nfP9Zq
