Pelosi Blames Trump for American Coronavirus Outbreak That Hasn’t Happened Yet

This is rich.

They say that Trump Derangement Syndrome isn’t a real disease, but there are circumstances where some doubt creeps in about that.

The barely-fictional affliction is characterized by flailing and rambling arguments about President Donald Trump, often accompanied by wild assertions about how the Commander in Chief is to blame for everything.

Coronavirus fears have been low here in the United States, with only a few cases having slipped through onto the mainland.

President Trump said earlier this week that the virus was “under control” – an assertion that the CDC responded to by insinuating that the spread of the virus stateside was inevitable.
