The daily dose of the President* Donald J. Trump Con Man Show passed off as a Coronavirus Pandemic Response Press Briefing which is used to promote lies, falsehoods, ignorance littered with corruption and Conspiracy Theories while congratulating himself for delusional embellishments that exist only in what little is left of his very unstable mind are quite revealing and his pandemonium is quite dangerous. The so-called press briefings have devolved into miniature rallies to benefit the fatally flawed personality traits – self-aggrandizing Sociopathic narcissism – that benefits no one but himself while causing more dubious distractions.
The man who doesn’t take responsibility for his massive failure of a response to the pandemic outbreak and doesn’t listen to professionals who warned him months before the outbreak occurred and feels no empathy towards others and only cares about himself is in no position to handle the National Emergency we’re experiencing now. The results of the massive failure that has been Trump’s Coronavirus Pandemic response is all his fault, and in fact, much of that massive failure that has been the Trump Administration’s reaction to the Coronavirus pandemic could easily be construed as criminal:

Using the so-called press briefings to stay in the spotlight while gaslighting the nation isn’t working out too well for Trump as more and more people are realizing how incompetent he is. Instead of informing the U.S. population about fighting the Coronavirus pandemic and acting Presidential, he has corrupted that opportunity and transformed them into reelection campaign rallies wherein he attacks his political rivals, Governors and others that are critical of his failed response, pushes untested drug and herbal supplement treatments as well as other Conspiracy Theories crafted by Fox faux News and a couple of his other propaganda outlets, attacked the press for using his words against him and revealed exactly why he never belonged in the White House to begin with.
Trump is a one trick pony. As long as he’s the center of attention he’s happy and he’ll say and do anything to keep the spotlight on himself. You can rest assured that Trump’s pandemonium is intentional. It’s designed to keep him in the spotlight, deflect from his incompetence, distract us from the crimes he is committing and to cater to his endless corrupt delusions. The only thing it has resulted in so far is more American deaths from the Coronavirus, record unemployment and total chaos as hospitals scramble for supplies and small businesses wonder if they’ll ever recover. Meanwhile Trump says his gut will lead him but as the past three plus years have shown, that only means another corrupted moronic decision based on demented delusion that will benefit him and his cohorts is headed our way.
TRUMP ISN’T CAPABLE OF RESPONDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
The Coronavirus outbreak that has been unleashed upon the world is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in our lifetime but dystopian delusions – ignorant bull shit – lies and rage tweeting don’t destroy diseases and someone apparently forgot to send our president* that memo. Using a bully pulpit and interrupting daily television programming to misinform and gaslight everyone while distracting with more deception and misinformation to cover up his latest crime spree only serves to highlight the fact that Trump doesn’t have a plan to deal with the pandemic, isn’t capable of handling a crisis, isn’t presidential – nor will he every be – and that in fact he should have been removed from office when he was impeached.
In keeping with his endless supplies of corruption and stupidity, and ignoring warnings of the upcoming pandemic before taking action, Trump’s dubious ‘America First’ policy is a resounding success. America now leads the world in active cases of the Coronavirus and will inevitably end up leading the world in deaths from it. As of this writing, there are more than 545,000 cases of Coronavirus and 21,662 deaths in the U.S. alone and almost 2 million worldwide with more than 121,000 deaths. More than 209 countries and territories are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which is still spreading. A map of U.S. Coronavirus cases can be found here and a map of Worldwide Coronavirus cases can be found here.
The U.S. couldn’t implement a pandemic plan for several reasons, including the fact that Trump disbanded the pandemic response team, fired the one person that was in China who was charged with handling the pandemic, decided to send the surplus of medical equipment we had on hand to China and Israel, and a multitude of other f*&k ups while ignorantly claiming he wasn’t responsible for it. Another reason the U.S. hasn’t implemented a plan to deal with the pandemic is because no such plan exists. Instead of listening to professionals Trump decided to listen to the propagandists – and soon it will cost his most ardent supporters drastically. Unfortunately the rest of us will pay a heavy price for it too.
Because we have a failed fraudulent con man suffering from pathological narcissism who only cares about himself, the pandemic response in the U.S. has been non-existent for the most part and States have been forced to fend for themselves. Instead of heeding the warnings about the pandemic that he was warned about two months in advance, Trump decided to listen to Fox faux News - and other members of his vast propaganda network such as OAN, etc. - and ignore it thinking it would magically disappear and go away when the weather warmed up. When pressed about it he referred to it as a ‘hoax’ while lying repeatedly about having everything under control.
TRUMP IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS FAILED PANDEMIC RESPONSE
For over 3 years now the media has, for the most part, aired all of Trump’s fallacies and lies without question. That hasn’t changed since much of the country was shut down, and in fact has only worsened since the start of the Coronavirus outbreak. While it’s true that airing his delusional diatribes without question has only made it more obvious how insanely incompetent Trump is, the media needs to start changing the way it enables him. Instead of airing his ignorance and lies live, the media needs to either tape it and air it with a fact-checking chyron at the same time it airs his lies or have real time fact checking that reveals the truth. Allowing him to continue spreading his delusions live during a national crisis which only going to worsen before it gets better is unacceptable, and speaks volumes as to how corrupt an unreliable U.S. corporate media has become.
Try as he may – in his usual ignorant fashion – to rewrite the history of his failed Coronavirus pandemic response, Trump can’t escape the fact that it is all his fault and tens of thousands – including his ardent followers – will pay with their lives for his corrupt ineptitude. So far, Trump and his administration have misrepresented the threat, disregarded experts in favor of their propaganda outlets, did not prepare adequately and tens of thousands of Americans have died, which begs the question will they be held accountable for their multitude of crimes? And still he denies any responsibility for worsening the entire situation because it’s never his fault, despite the obvious fact that it is:

The first, and arguably most important thing to remember about the coronavirus is that the majority of those that contract it also recover from it. People that have an existing co-morbidity – respiratory, lung and heart issues, diabetes, etc. – usually succumb to the disease faster than people that are normally healthy. So far, at least one infant, a couple of children and several elderly adults died from it, and the symptoms vary, but it’s important to remember not to panic because of it, regardless of the never-ending dooms day news you normally see 24 hours a day. Washing your hands several times a day, wearing a mask when you go out and practicing safe social distancing will help prevent spreading the disease if you are a carrier. We’re all in this together and we will survive.
It’s a shame that instead of using the Coronavirus pandemic to actually be presidential and rally this country around him, Trump decided instead to use it to remove any shred of credibility he may have had left. Trump’s propaganda outlet likes to refer to him as a ‘War President’ fighting an invisible enemy but, like getting the majority to rally around him and act like a decent, empathetic human being, he blew it. Each passing day brings more examples of how presidential pandemonium is punctuating pandemic failure while revealing Trump’s infinite ignorance, that he only cares about himself, that he’s playing a disgusting political game with our lives and that he has no idea of what he’s doing. The ultimate con man that is our so-called president* has finally met an opponent that is going to bring him down and his corrupt cronies in the Senate won’t be able to save him this time around.
