Within the last 24 hours or so, the United States has reported an additional 369 cases of the Coronavirus and 6 deaths, bringing the country’s respective totals up to about 3,200 cases and 63 deaths, all of which are spread across the country. This weekend, where are Trump’s priorities as this rages? With belittling those who’ve dared to challenge him or his allies at any point in the past. Americans are dying preventable deaths, not to mention the struggles around the world, and Trump is still tweeting angrily about Hillary Clinton and the FBI, among other targets.

After announcing that there’d be another press conference held by the Coronavirus response team this Sunday afternoon, Trump raged:

‘The USA was never set up for this, just look at the catastrophe of the H1N1 Swine Flu (Biden in charge, 17,000 people lost, very late response time), but it soon will be. Great decision to close our China, and other, borders early. Saved many lives!’

Wrong! In complete contrast to Trump’s flimsy claim of a “late response time” to the swine flu outbreak, FactCheck.org notes that Obama administration officials “declared a public health emergency early in the H1N1 outbreak, secured funding from Congress and ultimately declared a national emergency,” among other steps. It’s also worth noting that the fatality rate from that virus — which was more ubiquitous than the Coronavirus, since it was a strain of the flu — was significantly lower than that of the presently spreading illness. If a recent World Health Organization 3.4 percent estimate for the Coronavirus fatality rate had been in effect then, over two million Americans may have died. The two situations are very different — they’re not a one-to-one comparison or a contest.

This Saturday, Trump also complained about Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — who recently said Trump’s Supreme Court justices had “released the whirlwind” “will pay the price” — and he also announced he was considering a pardon for his former aide Michael Flynn, who’s faced criminal charges for lying to investigators during the Russia investigation. He dinged the FBI for supposedly “destroying” Flynn’s life and that of his family — although all they’ve done is hold him accountable for his duly documented behavior in line with the rule of law. Also — hey, remember the pandemic you’re supposed to be responding to, Trump!
