The Trump administration wants you to know that it is taking the coronavirus threat very seriously, and that no one is trying to minimize it or its risks:
Donald Trump disagrees:
But, to be fair, as the number of coronavirus cases in the United States continues to rise, and people continue to die—with no discernible plan to deal with it from the administration—Trump did take the time to insist that the plummeting stock market is the fault of Saudi Arabia and Russia. And that Barack Obama and Joe Biden are crooks. So, carry on. Nothing to see here. Oh, and wash your hands.
