A ‘Badge Of Honor’ (WTF)

May I see a show of hands?

How many readers still support Trump and his pandemic response?

Never mind…..just thinking out loud.

Recently the US topped 1.5 million cases of Covid-19…..and Donald the Orange has called it a Badge of Honor…..seriously…a badge of honor?

The US has the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world, but the leader of the nation doesn’t appear to be discouraged by that fact. In fact, he called it a “badge of honor,” per the BBC and CNN. “By the way, you know when you say that we lead in cases, that’s because we have more testing than anybody else,” he told reporters Tuesday as he hosted his first cabinet meeting since the start of the US outbreak. “If you’re testing 14 million people, you’re going to find many more cases. Many of these people aren’t very sick but they still go down as a case, so, actually, the number of cases—and we’re also a much bigger country than most. So when we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing, I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing because it means our testing is much better.”

He continued, “So I view it as a badge of honor. Really, it’s a badge of honor. It’s a great tribute to the testing and all of the work that a lot of professionals have done.” The US has conducted more than 12 million tests, the most of any country by volume—but when looked at on a per capita basis, the US ranks 16th in testing, and experts have said testing needs to be ramped up even further before the country can reopen safely. Time notes that the US gets a positive case for every 7.8 tests, while other countries have to test more people than that in order to find a positive. The DNC’s response to Trump’s comments? “Trump says he views our 1.5 million confirmed coronavirus cases as a ‘badge of honor,'” it tweeted. “We view it as a complete failure of leadership.”

And the ‘Badge of Honor’ has killed 92,000 Americans and yet Donald wants us to be proud of that…..

This spineless creep is more delusional everyday……and he has delusional supporters that fell of the turnip truck recently.

  2. Bad enough allowing the unnecessary deaths of so many Americans. Soiling their memory with this crap is beyond the pale.
    Best wishes, Pete.
