Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network chief political analyst and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson said President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic has turned the United States into “the shithole country that nobody wants people from.”
Co-host Joe Scarborough asked, “Did you ever think, Gene, in all of your years, that the United States of America would be in such a poor condition, a Third World condition when it came to health care and the government’s handling of a pandemic, that we wouldn’t be able to go to other countries?”
And Donald Trump didn’t do that, because he thought the virus was a hoax or he didn’t understand it or confused World War I and World War II and 1917.”
We are, we are the shithole country that nobody wants people from.
Donald Trump’s ignorance of history, Donald Trump’s ignorance of medicine, Donald Trump’s ignorance of epidemiology, Donald Trump’s refusal to listen to his experts have put us in this position.”
