Nothing really surprises me any more. Nothing he has ever done is his fault. Ever.
What I find ironic to the degree that Shakespeare or Sophocles would love is that Trump, a pathological germophobe, is having to deal with a crisis brought on by germs and spread by close human contact. Not only does he not know how to deal with it because he doesn’t know how to run a government, it’s the kind of crisis that isn’t wrought by terrorists or a bunch of plotting hackers. It’s brought on by a sneeze and there’s no effective vaccine for it. It must be driving him into full-tilt panic mode.
He also had to really reach to find some way to blame it on President Obama when it was his administration that has been cutting CDC funding for global health security, most likely on his theory that who cares what happens in shithole countries, anyway? Let ’em die.
I’m waiting for him to blame the attack on Pearl Harbor on Obama. After all, wasn’t he born in Hawaii? Oh, wait…
Bonus Track: Trump’s little minion, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL sigh), goes full middle-school fool with a gas mask on the floor of the House. Well, as one Twitter post noted, as long as he’s wearing the mask, he can’t talk.
