Add 99 more pages just like the one the New York Times showed, and that is how many Americans have died in the COVID-19 pandemic, So how did the president assist the nation as it worked through its grieving process?

The Hill tweet captured POTUS golfing:

‘WATCH: President Trump golfs on Saturday at his Virginia golf club. ‘

Trump was out on the links Saturday at his National Golf Club in northern Virginia, according to The New York Daily News. Its cover shows him golfing along with a wonderful play on words read “What a Putts!”

In 2016, Trump told the people who attended one of his campaign events:

‘Because I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go golfing, believe me. Believe me. Believe me, folks.’

Given that the president is allegedly narcissistic and there is a whole book by mental health professionals warning the country of the dangers of Donald J. Trump, maybe he really does not care how many Americans died of coronavirus. Twenty-five mental health experts came together to write about the president’s mental health. MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell said about The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President:

‘This is an historic work in the history of American psychiatry. We have never been in this place before.

‘Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work.

‘Meanwhile, the president spent his day golfing’

Trump’s 2020 presidential opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted:

‘Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work.

‘Meanwhile, the president spent his day golfing.’

Long-time investigative journalist Bill Moyers commented on the mental health of the president and the book:

‘There will not be a book published this fall more urgent, important, or controversial than The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump…profound, illuminating and discomforting.’

The Washington Post wrote:

‘The stand these psychiatrists are taking takes courage, and their conclusions are compelling.’

Estelle Freedman, the Robinson Professor in U.S. History at Stanford University wrote:

“This insightful collection … is a valuable primary source documenting the critical turning point when American psychiatry reassessed the ethics of restraining commentary on the mental health of public officials in light of the ‘duty to warn of imminent danger.’

Samuel Barondes Professor Emeritus and Former Chair of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco added:

‘When I first heard about the conference that gave rise to this book at Yale, I was worried that a manifesto would come out with a diagnosis…. That is not what happened: what happened is a very thoughtful assessment based on lots of public data, which gives us a very clear way of thinking about the terrific vulnerabilities of our current president that elicits a duty to warn.’
