We’re number one!

The US has suffered more confirmed coronavirus deaths than any other country and on Saturday was poised to soon reach 19,000 Covid-19 fatalities, new data indicated.

This is all the more impressive when you remember we don’t have more people that any other country – we’re far behind China and India.

By Saturday afternoon, Johns Hopkins University’s tally of US Covid-19 fatalities was at 18,860. Italy followed with 18,849. The US was also the first country to report 2,000 deaths in a single day, with 2,108 people dying in the previous 24 hours….

Also on Saturday, the New York Times published a devastating report chronicling Donald Trump’s repeated failures over several months to take the coronavirus crisis seriously, and how the president’s suspicion of the so-called Deep State “colored” his response even as the death toll began to soar.

In short, we’re a failed state.

“The shortcomings of Mr Trump’s performance have played out with remarkable transparency as part of his daily effort to dominate television screens and the national conversation,” the Times reported, referring to the president’s rambling and falsehood-ridden press briefings from the White House, which even Republican allies believe are hurting his popularity.

And hurting everything else even more.
