President Donald Trump might be bored of the novel coronavirus pandemic—but, unfortunately for him and everyone else, sarcastic tweets won’t do anything to hasten the end of the outbreak. In a series of tone-deaf tweets on Monday, Trump repeatedly mocked media coverage of the pandemic—perhaps out of frustration that it’s overshadowing his evidence-free obsession with Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine. In one tweet, the president wrote: “The Fake News Media is riding COVID, COVID, COVID, all the way to the Election. Losers!” He also wrote: “COVID, COVID, COVID is being used by [the media] in total coordination, in order to change our great early election numbers.” Trump’s apparent boredom with the virus comes as new data shows that the U.S. is currently reporting a new COVID-19 case every 1.26 seconds.
