On Sunday, the day Cheeto promised we'd see the rollout of an(other) imaginary "exciting" new health plan, he went golfing in Florida. He did Saturday too. Though he "aced" his cognitive test, he doesn't quite seem to get the math of the times. We're here to help. For the guy who said he'd be too busy working for us to golf, it was his 284th day playing golf while in office, and his 377th day - more than a year - at one of his properties, at an estimated cost to taxpayers of over $138 million, or 330 years of presidential salaries. In his first term, he has played more golf than Obama did in eight years; Obama also got booed far less often. Meanwhile, in a catastrophe that "didn't have to be," coronavirus cases have metastasized, with the U.S recording over 1.9 million new cases in July alone, more than double the number in any other month, bringing the lurid national total to over 4.7 million cases - by far the most in the world - and 157,000 deaths (though those numbers went up as we wrote this), or over 1,000 a day; during each of Trump's 18-hole golf games, nine Americans died per hole. A broad array of health experts say 90% of our total deaths were preventable if we'd had an adult leading us. Despite the carnage, we still have no national testing program, contact tracing or strategy to control the virus, and health care workers still don't have enough PPE. Even so, lying Press Barbie, who can also struggle with numbers, insists on the "great successes" and "terrific leadership" of "the past three-plus years," though they're actually centuries.
