  • Every six minutes someone in the state of New York has died from COVID-19
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned that over 200,000 Americans could die during the pandemic
  • Yet, only three hours ago, the President of the United States of America, who is by no means a narcissistic megalomaniacal sociopath, had another focus… his ratings:

A reminder that this person is the President of the United States of America during a global health pandemic, and is the same person who fired the global pandemic response team in 2018 and sabotaged America’s ability to respond to our current health crisis.
