Donald Trump is having a very hard time with reality right now. He truly believes that he is some sort of savior to the American people after it was revealed that he purposely put off preparations for an imminent outbreak because it would create bad optics for his 2020 election campaign.
Trump has been tweeting since before dawn Monday, and he’s at it again, this time screaming in all caps. Check out what he’s saying below about the NY Times:
That isn’t the only thing Trump’s tweeted either.

According to CBS:
One of the drugs President Trump has touted as a potential “game changer” to treat COVID-19 is a vital medication for patients with lupus. However, the drug — hydroxychloroquine — has not been clinically tested or approved to treat coronavirus, and the nation’s top infectious disease expert says there is no evidence it is effective.
Now there are reports of people stockpiling the drug, and people with lupus say they are struggling to fill their long-standing prescriptions.
March 21st, Trump tweeted the following, which sent his devoted fans running for their debit cards:
HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains – Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents)…..

The report continued:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH, called Mr. Trump’s assertions about hydroxychloroquine “anecdotal” and said there is no evidence that it is effective for COVID-19 patients. But that apparently has not stopped people for seeking out the drug. The Lupus Foundation of America released a statement warning “these drugs may be in high demand in the coming weeks.”
People responding to these tweets were pissed off, and no one could ever blame them. We are all angry at what our country has become. Check out what they had to say below:
