Trump Plays Down Covid-19 Threat

Daffy Don likes to claim otherwise, but his idiotic tweets provide all the evidence that's needed to confirm he's not up to the job as president. 

The New York Times reports a conversation with the journalist Bob Woodward in which Donald Trump acknowledged he had knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year - even though he was aware it was “deadly” and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu.

This is deadly stuff,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward back February 2020 in one of a series of interviews conducted with the president for Woodward's new book, “Rage.” 

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.”
A vastly different story to the one Trump was telling the public, of course.
