Back in the seventies, when New York City was collapsing, President Gerald Ford refused to do anything about it. The New York Daily News ended up running the famous headline “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” We’re now facing an exponentially more dire crisis, affecting the entire nation, and unfortunately we’re stuck with a president who makes Ford look like Lincoln.

During Donald Trump’s latest idiotic press conference yesterday, he falsely claimed that a coronavirus treatment drug was available when that wasn’t the case. Then he tried to shake off questions about the nation’s inability to acquire emergency medical supplies, by insisting that the Governors are responsible for this. Just to be a dick about it, Trump made a point of saying “we are not a shipping clerk.”

No really, he said this. There’s footage. Google it if you’re in disbelief. But really, is anything surprising with this guy anymore? Donald Trump is so pathetically obsessed with not just shifting blame, but with shifting responsibility and effort and work and leadership, he can’t even pretend to act like a president.

What exactly does Donald Trump think his role is supposed to be in all of this? What does he think a President of the United States even does? Three years after he rigged his own election and hijacked the job, how could he still not have figured out what the job is? And yet the irony is that he’d probably have resigned by now and left us all alone, if not for the fact that he’s going to prison the minute he leaves office.
