President Donald Trump is desperately lost in his self-serving delusions of grandeur as the Coronavirus outbreak continues to rage across the U.S. and world. By just about all accounts, he has no idea what he’s talking about, and he’s masking his ineptitude by incessantly resorting to praising himself and his administration. Early this Tuesday, on another grim day for the U.S. in which New York has reported their highest daily death count so far, Trump flipped out and whined about the World Health Organization (WHO), the inspector general’s office overseeing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and an election taking place this week in Wisconsin.

He falsely alleged bias on the part of the part of the WHO and HHS inspector general’s office. The reason? He flipped out because the World Health Organization dared to admonish caution during the early days of the outbreak and because the HHS inspector general’s office dared to report the basic facts of the medical supply shortages faced by facilities across the country. The HHS IG report was not even a review of the administration’s crisis response; instead, CNN reports that its “purpose is to provide a snapshot of hospitals’ experiences amid a growing number of coronavirus cases,” and Trump flipped out over this basic, factual reporting. 

He tweeted:

‘Why didn’t the I.G., who spent 8 years with the Obama Administration (Did she Report on the failed H1N1 Swine Flu debacle where 17,000 people died?), want to talk to the Admirals, Generals, V.P. & others in charge, before doing her report. Another Fake Dossier!’

It’s impossible to overstate the dangerous delusion that the president is subscribing to. He’s calling basic, duly reported facts “fake” because they don’t fit in with his messaging that his administration’s Coronavirus response is coming along great.

As for the WHO, he added:

‘The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?’

His China travel ban — which is one of the only steps he took, in contrast to the WHO’s comprehensive response — didn’t even work. Tens of thousands of people flew from China to the U.S. after its implementation.
