This Monday, President Donald Trump marked Memorial Day with bizarre public behavior like his all-caps message wishing his followers a “HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!” as if the occasion was some kind of spectacle. Meanwhile, figures like former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton delivered a much more appropriate response to the occasion, which also coincided with the U.S. approaching a total of 100,000 confirmed Coronavirus deaths. In a message that she posted to Twitter, Hillary praised the steps that leaders like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) have taken in an attempt to keep people safe amidst the pandemic.

Alongside a photo of her, her husband Bill Clinton, and Cuomo, she wrote:

‘I’m missing our Chappaqua Memorial Day parade today while also feeling grateful to leaders like @NYGovCuomo for making responsible decisions to keep people safe. Wishing everyone a safe and healthy holiday. @BillClinton and I will be waving our flags at home.’

Notably, not only did Trump spend his Memorial Day morning engaging in bizarre displays that seemed disconnected from true nature of the circumstances at hand, he also specifically complained about the steps that governors have taken to try and protect their citizens from the Coronavirus. In an angry Twitter meltdown, he insisted that North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper (D) must give the GOP an answer immediately as to whether they’ll be allowed to gather tens of thousands of people in the state for the planned Republican National Convention this August.

It’s not the first time that Trump has seemed completely ignorant of what’s actually going on. Throughout the crisis, he has consistently insisted that some kind of grand recovery was just around the corner for the United States. At one point, he even said that he wanted to have social distancing demands lifted and the economy reopened by Easter — which was about a month and a half ago.
