Donald Trump has been rumored to be under some kind of intoxicant for his entire presidency and well into his 2016 presidential campaign. His bizarre behavior, which includes strange breathing, profuse sweating, dilated pupils, mindless rants, slurred speech, and seemingly senseless anger has served as strong evidence that Mr. Trump does, in fact, have a serious problem.
Saturday night was the perfect example as Trump spoke at the conservative CPAC event. During the speech, Trump exhibited that strange behavior again by ducking down behind the podium like a weirdo.
Check out the video:
That wasn’t the only stupid thing he did today.
Donald Trump is trying his damndest to steer the narrative when it comes to the coronavirus, which claimed its first American victim Saturday. The male victim, a resident of Washington State with pre-existing conditions, succumbed to the contagion in his 50’s.
The CDC apparently released the patient’s information Saturday, after Trump’s press conference:
Dr. Jeffrey Duchin, health officer for Seattle and King County, Washington, said during a CDC press briefing on Saturday that the Washington patient who died from the novel coronavirus was a man in his 50s.
Earlier today at the WH, POTUS said the patient was a woman.

Trump had earlier said that the coronavirus had claimed the life of a “wonderful woman,” and has been getting mocked for it ever since. Everyone, from political pundits, to network news correspondents, to every day Americans had something to say about it.
Washington officials just told reporters on a CDC call that the first coronavirus death in the U.S. was a man in his 50s with underlying health conditions. Trump, Pence and Azar all said the patient was a woman. Pretty big detail to get wrong… h/t @owermohle for asking the Q

And here’s the CDC Director on the record about the President, VP & Azar erroneously identifying the first coronavirus fatality as a woman https://t.co/y5IyxlTrsc

Trump today praised the "wonderful woman" who was the first US victim of #coronavirus.
The CDC briefed reporters just now that the victim was actually a male.

It was Rachel Maddow’s response to the flub that seems to be heating up the internet Saturday night:
I admit to being stuck on the fact that the President just convened reporters to announce the 1st US coronavirus death, a man in his 50s in Washington State.
The president said "She was a wonderful woman."
This is ridiculous.
Just stop. Stop talking. Let the scientists talk.

People on Twitter responding to Maddow’s tweet were in agreement that the president and his entire administration are too incompetent to handle the coronavirus outbreak in America. We saved the best reactions for you below:
