- 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:
“President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2020
…alone attracted 6.2 million viewers for the president’s briefing — an astounding number for a 6 p.m. cable broadcast, more akin to the viewership for a popular prime-time sitcom…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2020
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.
