So, why is the United States ignoring the second wave? There are more infections in the United States than any other nation, and yet, the Trump Administration pretends that the global pandemic is over. Spoiler: the global pandemic is not over. Not by a long shot. Trust the rest of the world that Covid-19 is still a danger.
All day long, Trump has repeatedly Tweeted and re-Tweeted false information and propaganda from Randy Quaid. Each Tweet is dumber than the next, but Trump seems to be caught up in the delusion.
Trump’s refusal to accept reality is troubling. Not simply because the President seems unable to competently perform his administrative duties (he has spent much of the week Tweeting conspiracy theories and firing bureaucrats), but Trump is riling up his base into believing that an actual injustice has been done.
