trump vs. reality..

trump said that his actions in response to the virus “saved millions”. 

Meanwhile, in Reality-land:

A thousand Americans die every day from the virus…. a 9/11 every three days.

We have 5 million known cases of Coronavirus. And nobody knows the real number because trump has discouraged testing.

trump has encouraged - even threatened - states into “opening up”. And those states that did have seen spikes of cases and deaths.

trump has issued no national policy program on Covid 19. Just like he has no policy program for his “second term”… other than “more of the same”.
Projections show that by 1 December, 310,000 Americans will have died from the virus. That is more Americans than died in combat in all of WWII.

Germany… led by Angela Merkel - a scientist… has a death rate 1/48th of the US death rate. 

Norway’s death rate from the virus is 5 per 100,000 population. Ours is 56 per 100,000. 

US death rate is 4th highest in the world… behind only Peru, Chile, and Brazil. 

The US has 4% of the world population… and 22% of the Covid deaths.


And let’s not forget… trump said 31 times that the virus was a hoax, or would magically disappear. Soon.

1. The combat deaths in WWII were from 1941 to 1945...

COVID-19 deaths are from February of THIS YEAR alone...
WE are losing people to COVID at FOUR TIMES the rate of people lost in WWII.

And he still walks around spewing stupidity and hocking quackery to the public.

The man should be in a strait-jacket and padded room already.

3. In an interview with Hannity, he referred to COVID19 as "corona flu".

And in a news conference in March he informed us that COVID19 is "like a flu".

I'm not sure what his exact credentials are in epidemiology, but they must be pretty impressive.

5. Didn't know that.

The irony sometimes gets deeper than the hypocrisy.

6. He was one of the first causalities of the epidemic in 1918

Yet the orange anus is stuck on 1917. Weird.
