Sure, the Death Toll Is Appalling, but the Ratings Are Great

When you elect a reality TV star president, you shouldn't be surprised that the subject of TV ratings is more important than the subject of an impending death toll of nightmarish proportions:

I can't wait for the day when the CDC releases the Sweeps Week ratings!

On an even more bizarre note, Trump seems to be implying that medical personnel are stealing personal protective equipment:

It's as if he doesn't even know that this equipment is meant for single use. He is on the record stating that hospitals should be sanitizing masks with 'liquids'.

The entire press briefing was a farrago of nonsense and duplicity, I don't know why media outlets even bother covering these lie-fests. Why give the asshole the ratings he craves?
