Trump gives himself an “A+” on pandemic response. We’ve done a “phenomenal job, not just a good job, a phenomenal job, other than public relations, but that’s because I have fake news.”

As the U.S. Covid-19 death toll was all but certain to hit 200,000 on Monday with the virus still taking the lives of nearly 1,000 Americans each day, President Donald Trump told Fox News that he would give himself a perfect grade for his handling of a pandemic that has infected more than 6.8 million people across the country, permanently eliminated millions of jobs, and destroyed countless livelihoods.
“We’re rounding the corner, with or without a vaccine,” Trump claimed Monday morning, even as the virus continues to spread nationwide. “We’ve done a phenomenal job, not just a good job, a phenomenal job, other than public relations, but that’s because I have fake news.”
“On public relations I give myself a ‘D.’ On the job itself, we take an ‘A+,’” added the president, who in March said he would consider a coronavirus death toll of “between 100,000 and 200,000” an indication that his administration did “a very good job.”
I do not think it gets mentioned nearly enough anymore that Donald Trump is fucking insane.
I am not using that term in a derogatory manner or simply because I dislike him, I am talking about clinically, ready to be institutionalized insane.
Saying that he deserves an A+ despite all of the evidence of his incompetence demonstrates the inability to recognize and accept reality.
In my job, I have regularly removed sharp objects, belts, and the shoelaces from patients exhibiting only a fraction of Trump’s mental health challenges.
For reasons that will forever elude me the American people gave this lunatic access to the nuclear codes.
