Have you noticed that trump has not

tweeted one message of condolence or concern for any victims of the COVID virus? Nothing. Not one word to the families on this "National Day of Prayer".

1. He's probably already forgotten about it.

Plus, he still doesn't see this as affecting him, in the least. Give it time.

18. Well, in Trumps defense....

You need to have both hands on the golf club to properly hit a golf ball. Makes it hard to tweet.

4. He's not capable of empathy.

And apparently he cannot even fake it. Like, AT ALL!

10. He did tweet the same old bullshit comparing H1N1 to COVID

....The USA was never set up for this, just look at the catastrophe of the H1N1 Swine Flu (Biden in charge, 17,000 people lost, very late response time), but it soon will be. Great decision to close our China, and other, borders early. Saved many lives!


While that death toll may sound high, itís over an entire year and, in fact, ended up being far lower than was initially expected. The strain of influenza also turned out to have a case fatality rate of just 0.02% ó well below even many typical seasonal influenzas.

Contrary to Trumpís suggestion that the Obama administration did ďnothing,Ē officials declared a public health emergency early in the H1N1 outbreak, secured funding from Congress and ultimately declared a national emergency, as weíll explain below.

On top of that, the CDC sequenced the new virus, created testing kits, and the Food and Drug Administration approved multiple vaccines, among other actions.

Rep. Michael Burgess, a Republican from Texas, praised the CDC at a House hearing in 2016 for quickly developing a vaccine for the swine flu in about six months ó in time for the start of the school year in September 2009. ďSo thatís a 6-month time frame if Iím doing my math correctly that you were able to identify the genetic sequence of the virus, reverse engineer a vaccine, test it, assure its safety and efficacy, and get it to school teachers on the second week of school. Thatís pretty impressive,Ē he said.

On April 15, 2009, the first infection was identified in California, according to the CDC, and less than two weeks later, on April 26, 2009, the Obama administration declared a public health emergency. The day before, on April 25, the World Health Organization had declared a public health emergency.

Dr. Richard Besser, then-acting director of the CDC, confirmed to the press on the day of the U.S. declaration that there were 20 cases of H1N1 in the U.S., and that ďall of the individuals in this country who have been identified as cases have recovered.Ē

12. It's about him. The only time he mentions victims is when he says how 'few' have died...

....to make himself look good (he thinks)

13. No money in sending condolences

There is nothing in it for him. He has no capacity for empathy or sympathy, anyway. If his twitter account did tweet out something about victims of the virus, it would likely be an underling sending it out in an attempt to save Trump face.

16. He would only send a message of condolence to himself.

He's the only one who matters.

19. Never Expect

Trump is worthless who things only of himself. So never and I mean never expect decency from anyone who lacks decency.

20. Why would he?

This is about him, and him only. The Dow Jones Average has been falling. It may affect his re-election chances.

Please keep up - this is the ultimate asshole we are talking about.

Sarcasm is in regard to keeping up, not his being the ultimate asshole. We all know who the ultimate asshole is - he tweets the answer every day.
