Donald Trump is upset, because he is not getting more accolades for his handling of Coronavirus or COVID-19. He is put out, because he has been calming down the stock market. After all, he fearlessly wades through the crowds of people at his 2020 presidential re-election rallies.

Of course, that might be something he had not considered. His rallies could be just a big petri dish of germs just waiting to jump out and wrestle POTUS to the ground. It should be interesting to see how long it takes for him to figure that one out.

Four people have died in the Seattle WA area, and experts said that the virus may have been around for as much as six weeks just cogitating and simmering throughout the general public.

An emergency room doctor who has been working at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital tore into the president for not being prepared for coronavirus.

Dr. Matthew McCarthy appeared on CNBC Monday and told the audience that the president is “woefully” unprepared for a coming pandemic. McCarthy pointed out that he did not have the tools he needed to diagnose patients quickly:

‘Before I came here this morning, I was in the emergency room seeing patients. I still do not have rapid diagnostic test available to me.’

Then, the doctor pointed out that the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ignored the World Health Organization’s (WHO) testing guidelines. Instead, the CDC sent out its own flawed tests to hospitals around the nation:

‘I’m here to tell you, right now, in one of the biggest hospitals in the country, I don’t have it at my fingertips. I still have to call the Department of Health, I still have to make my case, plead to test people — this is not good!’

Compared to the responses in other countries, the U.S.’s response is pitiful. The ER doctor continued:

‘In New York state, the person who tested positive was only the 32nd test we’ve done in this state. That is a national scandal! They’re testing 10,000 a day in some countries.’

During his South Carolina rally, the president said, according to The Bloomberg News:

‘Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. This is their new hoax, but you know, we did something that’s been pretty amazing.’

Health experts have been sounding the alarm that America could quickly drown in overwhelmed hospitals and shortages of necessary medical supplies. That could give the U.S. economy a shove closer to the edge of a global recession.

During his meeting with the Columbian president, Trump told reporters:

‘Maybe a cure is possible. They’re moving along very quickly.’

Professor and Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Peter Hotez, said:

‘That’s the bad news. But the good news is, I still think we have a couple more weeks to figure it out.’.
