Trump unveiled new props at bizarre COVID-19 briefing that spurred instant memes

Donald Trump held a bizarre pep rally press conference type thing on Monday. Trump and others spoke in the Rose Garden with two identical posters hung on each side of Trump’s dumb head, boasting a lie about America’s primacy in testing for the novel coronavirus. Americans with even the smallest level of critical thinking could see what was happening. Trump is attempting to sell America Trump steaks made out of Grade Z beef.

The signs, in big sans serif lettering, said: “AMERICA LEADS THE WORLD IN TESTING.” This was a last second deal and as George Orwell’s 1984 has taught us, simple bold lettering is how you drive home propaganda. Of course, simple bold lettering on a blank white background is also wildly easy to photoshop, so Twitter decided to have a field day with the tragicomedy that is this administration.

There’s the painful fact.

And there’s this other brutal fact.

1. Seriously, who advises this idiot. Other than his MAGA slogans and Build the wall

rhetoric. They really suck at messaging. No wonder he walked out yesterday. What does it matter if we lead the world in testing, when we are also leading the world in dying?

This is not a competition about who can test more. If they thought that this was going to be good messaging, they are dumber than I thought.
