Insane Clown President*
Updated: May 31, 2020
In the history of humankind there has never been a political leader as 'know-nothing', as clownish, as inarticulate, as self-aggrandizing, as boorish, as duplicitous, as unfeeling as the former reality show narcissist running America today. Here are just a few quotes from this miscreant in the midst of global pandemic:
Jan 22 –- “We have it totally under control. It is one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”
Jan 22– “No, the corona virus won’t become a pandemic. Not at all.”
Feb 11– “In our country, we only have, basically, 12 cases and most of those people are recovering and some cases fully recovered. So it’s actually less.”
Feb 25–"A vaccine will be available soon"
Feb 28– “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”
March 6 -– (visiting the CDC) “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, ‘how do you know so much about this?’ maybe I have a natural ability.’ Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”March 11 -– "The vast majority of Americans, the risk is very, very low.”
March 17 -– “I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”
March 23-– “America will again, and soon, be open for business — very soon — a lot sooner than three or four months that somebody was suggesting. A lot sooner. We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself. We’re not going to let the cure be worse than the problem.”
March 27-– “I’m not sure anybody even knows what it is. You can call it a germ. You can call it a flu. You can call it a virus. You can call it many different names.
Feb 25 -– “…the Democrats are politicizing the corona virus… they tried the impeachment hoax … and this is their new hoax.” (to Sean Hannity)
*Feb 29 -– “Everything is really under control.” (The vaccine will be available) “very rapidly.”
April 4—“ “So I want to keep them out of ventilators, I want to keep them — if this drug works, it will be not a game changer because that’s not a nice enough term. It will be wonderful, it’ll be so beautiful, it’ll be a gift from heaven if it works, because when people go into those ventilators, you know the answers, and I’m glad you don’t write about it.”
April 1– “I have hundreds of millions of people. Number one on Facebook … Did you know? I just found out.”
May 18– “I’m taking it, hydroxychloroquine. Right now, yeah. Couple of weeks ago, I started taking it. Cause I think it’s good, I’ve heard a lot of good stories.”
Total reported cases as of May 24/2020: 1,677,669. Death toll: 99,047. The US is has the worlds highest number of cases and deaths due to COVID-19. Many of these deaths simply did not need to happen--that they did happen and could have been prevented should lead us to conclude that the POTUS is guilty of negligent homicide.
'Insane Clown President' is the title of a recent book by the always insightful Matt Taibbi. You can listen to a talk he gave on the book here.
