Enjoy this Daily Show supercut of right-wing media figures downplaying the coronavirus

2 min read

A devastating Washington Post story from this morning details the Trump administration’s myriad failures on the way to thousands of American deaths (and counting). In short, the White House refused to take the coronavirus threat seriously or take appropriate action until it was too late.

It’s a must-read, and by all means, go read it.

But Trump’s early laissez-faire attitude toward, well, our lives was enabled by an ovine chorus of imbeciles who were far more interested in spinning bad news about a deadly virus that somehow didn’t understand that Donald Trump is the greatest thing to happen in the history of America — greater even than the signing of the Declaration of Independence, or the premiere of Mountain Dew Baja Blast, or that time Evel Knievel nearly jumped over the Snake River on his Skycycle

The Daily Show has put together a supercut of the best/worst of this right-wing media toadying. Laugh, cry, throw something. It’s up to you.

Oh, and bonus!

Here’s Trump’s campaign spokeswoman, Kayleigh McEnany, promising us that Trump is so tough and supercompetent that there’s no way the virus would ever dare disembark on our godly, pristine shores:

But don’t worry about it. Grampa Rage Diapers and the feckless fopdoodle who shtupped his fave daughter are on this. You have nothing to worry about. No, nothing at all.

Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear Fcking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its boffo sequels Dear Prsident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
