Not even remotely close. Trump never invaded Iran, which is something crazy to ignore here. Had Bush only assassinated a major general in Iraq during his time in office, things would be very different there today.

But I am most curious about his demographic claim, that the "middle class" has largely decamped from the Windy City. Has it?
Broadly true, and most pronounced in neighborhoods like Chatham and other black-majority areas of the bungalow belt. The middle-class areas dominated by city workers (the Irving Park area in the far northwest, the southwest side Irish areas, Bridgeport) are still about the same. But it's happening at both ends — a lot of places are a lot poorer, but the rich are also no longer confined to a narrow corridor along the lakefront. Most of the north side's like that now. This is, of course, nothing unique to Chicago at all; same demographic shifts are happening in a lot of cities.

False until the Pandemic Chicago was actually growing during the 2010's primarily thanks to gentrification and Latinos. Blacks were moving out general to areas such as Atlanta though.
That doesn't really answer the question. The city can be growing and middle-class areas can be shrinking; in fact, that'd look a lot like some areas getting taken over by gentrifiers (who, at least in the later waves, tend to make a lot more than the metro-wide average) and others becoming majority-Latino (who, in Chicago, tend to make a fair bit less than average).

In my only ever interaction with him he was quite rude, so I'll say HP.

What happened? Everything I've seen of him seems ok.

CDC Scaled Back Hunt for Breakthrough Cases Just as the Delta Variant Grew​​​​​​

Bloomberg identified more than 100,000 vaccine breakthroughs

The U.S. agency leading the fight against Covid-19 gave up a crucial surveillance tool tracking the effectiveness of vaccines just as a troublesome new variant of the virus was emerging. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped comprehensively tracking what are known as vaccine breakthrough cases in May, the consequences of that choice are only now beginning to show.


But in the months since, the number of vaccine breakthrough cases has grown, as has the risk that they present. And while the CDC has stopped tracking such cases, many states have not. Bloomberg gathered data from 35 states and identified 111,748 vaccine breakthrough cases through the end of July, more than 10 times the CDC’s end-of-April tally.


The CDC said when it announced the change in May that it would continue to collect data on breakthrough cases if the infections resulted in hospitalization or death — a rare occurrence, since vaccines provide significant protection. The decision to stop tracking non-severe cases was made to “help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance,” the agency says on its website.

But that decision to follow not track mild or asymptomatic cases is now being questioned, including by state officials dealing with the virus on the front lines.


“When I saw CDC was going to stop tracking vaccinated people who get infected, my heart sank,” said Charity Dean, who helped lead California’s response to Covid as the state health department’s assistant director. “We lost our shot at being able to characterize how this variant is moving through the population and how new variants might emerge.”


“The more data you have, the better decisions you can make. So why would they knowingly turn away data which historically has been really important to have?” said Michael Kinch, director of the Center for Research Innovation in Business at Washington University in St. Louis. “For an administration that said they’ll be driven by the science, it makes no scientific sense.”

It seems by this point pretty clear that this was a mistake. You can't understand what you don't measure because you have chosen not to collect data on it.

Of all the cream that's gone down my throat, I'd say this is a favorite.
