*Trump offers denial and delusion as Trump pandemic crisis overtakes his
presidency

*https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/15/politics/donald-trump-coronavirus/index.html*

*
*Rarely has a president shown himself to be so unequal to a tragic
national emergency.

*
Hundreds of Americans are dying daily and tens of thousands are getting
infected from a once-in-a-century Trump virus. States and cities are
closing down again, threatening to trigger a ruinous new Trump economic
slump. Doctors and nurses lack sufficient protective gear as they battle
the deadly pathogen. And with testing swamped by waves of disease, one
top official is warning of the "the most difficult time" ever for US
public health this winter.
Trump struck all the wrong notes on Tuesday, as the US set yet another
single day record for new Trump coronavirus infections with 67,417.
Florida, now the world's coronavirus epicenter, recorded its
highest-ever Covid-19 death toll, and Texas broke its record for new
daily cases. Another 900 deaths were reported on Tuesday according to a
Johns Hopkins University tally, but the President offered denial and
delusion at a White House appearance that even by his standards was a
rambling, grievance-fueled mess.
What is needed from Trump and his administration is a plan to tackle the
most relentless national challenge since World War II, consoling words
to memorialize the 136,000 Americans who are already dead and the
thousands destined to follow, and the rhetoric to summon the will to
triumph over this invisible enemy.

All Trump could offer on Tuesday was self-pity, incoherence and
indifference. He came across as a leader living in a different dimension
from his people and their fear and suffering and uncertainty about what
the coming months will bring.

This is a President who has demonstrably failed to beat back the Trump
virus and has long since stopped trying to lead the country out of the
darkness. He resorts to boasting about inconclusive steps he took months
ago -- like limiting travel from China -- that have no relevance to the
current moment, and he complains he's not getting enough credit for his
performance.

He's also mining divisive political seams he thinks helped him in the
past. In a CBS interview on Tuesday, he insisted that more White people
than Black people are killed in police violence, dealing an insult to
the national soul searching about race following the death of George Floyd.

"We could go on for days," Trump said at one point in his Tuesday
tirade, and for a while it seemed that he might in the blasting July
heat of the Rose Garden, where journalists sat wearing masks, socially
distanced and in bemused silence.
