Faced with incontrovertible evidence that he knowingly downplayed the seriousness of the Coronvirus pandemic, President Trump today explained why he misled the American public about the danger it posed.
“I can’t bear the thought of causing panic.”
Trump explained that, being a Gandi-like leader that the public is used to seeing as calm and reassuring presence, he feared the panic over seeing him say scary things would be the greater evil.
“There’s a reason I’m called the Soother-in-Chief.”
Despite the large and to a good extent avoidable death toll – now at 190,000 – he insists the alternative was far far worse.
“Millions would have lost their lives to despair if they had heard me saying anything even mildly disturbing.”
Trump then excused himself so he could tweet that if Biden wins, BLM thugs and MS-13 will come to the suburbs to kill you and your children in their sleep.
