Medicynical note: That the Trump administration bungled the response to the pandemic from its actual onset in December and later spread to the U.S. is well documented. Trump thought it would go away like magic and to some extent still thinks that way. As leader of the world’s economic power he has stated that he “takes no responsibility at all.”
And despite multiple assertions from him that his response was perfect and that all is well, a thousand people died yesterday from COVID-19 infection. Think of it. We are six months into the pandemic in the United States and are approaching 170,000 Americans dead and the equivalent of three 747’s full of passengers perish daily from COVID and Trump is out there………golfing.
