Without fail, President Donald Trump continues to prioritize his public image above many to most all other concerns amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. To that end, early this Saturday, the day after the U.S. reported its most new Coronavirus cases in a single day so far, Trump rushed to Twitter to complain about “fake news,” Democrats, and the Wall Street Journal. His contention throughout all of the complaints was that he’s actually done a great job responding to the Coronavirus. The problem is: we can all see what he’s doing, and he’s failing.

Early in the morning, he spoke as if he was trying to speak a beefed up Coronavirus testing capacity for the U.S. into existence. But, that’s not how it works — he can’t simply wish away the reality that even if the overall total of tests that the U.S. has done is high, it’s not higher than every other country put together and the test per capita rate is still sharply lower than many other major countries. He eventually added the qualifier that the U.S. has supposedly done more tests than every other “major” country put together, but it’s unclear what that arbitrary description “major” is supposed to actually mean.

These issues come after the Trump administration wasted weeks on end with no large-scale testing regimen in place at all in the early days of the pandemic. Neither did the administration enact any kind of large-scale effort to secure medical equipment until weeks on end had passed. Trump also glibly glossed over these issues, congratulating himself for a supposed job well done even as Americans die from the Coronavirus at a rate of thousands per day.

Trump topped off his whining by insisting that when he called the Coronavirus a hoax, he didn’t really call the Coronavirus a hoax, but instead, he just meant that concern about the virus was a hoax. That is also, however, incorrect, and there’s been no miracle disappearance of the virus from the U.S. because Trump wished it in front of a mirror enough times.
