Trump Explodes and Whines That No One’s Giving Him Credit for Saving the Country from Coronavirus

After a relatively quiet day on the Trump homefront, the big orange oaf has finally hit Twitter, and it was to complain that he’s just not getting the credit he deserves for stopping coronavirus.

Of course, coronavirus hasn’t been stopped. We are in as much danger as we were a few days ago. We don’t know the truth because the federal government is coddling Trump and remaining quiet so that the stock market doesn’t continue to slide, and put Trump’s reelection in danger.

Oh, and Trump also congratulated Mike Pence for stopping coronavirus, which Pence has most certainly not done.

Trump first tweeted, “Do Nothing Democrats were busy wasting their time on the Impeachment Hoax, & anything they could do to make the Republican Party look bad, while I was busy calling early boarder & flight closings, putting us way ahead in our battle with the Coronavirus. Dems called it very wrong!”

Then Trump tweeted a congrats to Mike Pence, for doing…absolutely nothing??

Trump said, “Congratulations and thank you to our great Vice President & all of the many professionals doing such a fine job at CDC & all other agencies on the Coronavirus situation. Only a very small number in U.S., & China numbers look to be going down. All countries working well together!”

Meanwhile, California is monitoring 8,400 people for coronavirus, after someone got the virus locally.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday that 33 people have tested positive for COVID-19 and the state is currently monitoring at least 8,400 others —a day after U.S. health officials confirmed the first possible community transmission of the coronavirus in a Solano County resident.

“This is a fluid situation right now and I want to emphaize the risk to the American public remains low,” said Dr. Sonia Y. Angell, California Department of Public Health Director and State Health Officer during a press conference. “There have been a limited number of confirmed cases to date.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t know exactly how the new California patient, who’s receiving medical care in Sacramento County, contracted the virus. The patient didn’t have a relevant travel history or exposure to another patient with the virus, the CDC said Wednesday.

California health officials said the patient wasn’t under quarantine before her diagnosis and was out and about in her community.
