In spite of Donald Trump’s assurances to the contrary, Coronavirus / COVID19 is far from being contained and conquered. We’d be ill-advised… really ILL… to be paying any attention to anything that this science denying, intellectually incurious “leader” is saying.
Of course, what he IS saying has been rendered incoherent by his circumlocution and gibberish. While that, in itself, is not dangerous, it is his wasting our time that IS the real threat. We’d all be far better served if the fake prez would fade into the woodwork and do nothing… which, btw, IS what he does the very best.
