Donald Trump took a minute amid the national crisis during a press conference to make the COVID-19 crisis all about him. Hey, that’s what this president specializes in. We’re used to Trump’s ignorant self-aggrandizing behavior; after all, it defines him. This time, though, Trump tried to claim that the U.S. death toll from COVID-19 cases in the world is “a badge of honor,” and we’re not sure how to take that. Trump is a deeply flawed individual who lacks empathy for the very people he is supposed to protect.
“I don’t look at that as a bad thing,” President Bodybags insisted. “I look at that, in a certain respect, as being a good thing. Because it means our testing is much better.”
Watch this shit:
Trump says the U.S. having the most COVID-19 cases in the world is “a badge of honor”:

We’re getting horrifyingly close to one hundred and twenty-seven thousand deaths in the US from the pandemic that Trump failed to act promptly on when he first learned about it in November, and yet, this motherfucker isn’t concerned about the mountain of dead bodies behind him.
Twitter users were ready to cut a bitch.
You know, I’m not a religious man……. but this monster is certainly checking the Antichrist boxes off

He’s actually going for the, “we have the most cases, we’re the best argument” 🤦🏻♀️

Here’s how ignorant & dishonest Trump is:
So the US has the most confirmed cases in the world, and Trump says: “It’s a badge of honor. We’re doing a great job.” If the US had the fewest confirmed cases in the world, Trump would say THE EXACT SAME THING. https://t.co/YABtw8syxp

Sigh. We have a cruel, petty, petulant, potentate sitting in the highest seat in the land, propped up by his supporters who see him as their orange pissdaddy while the country burns to the ground. Get out and vote, please.
