To the Editor:

You who labor under the misconception that PLOTUS, the Principal Liar of The U.S., oval office guy, is doing a wonderful job handling Covid-19 in the U.S., how about we review a smattering of facts on the progress of the fight.

1/20/2020: First case reported in Washington state. “We do have a plan and we think it’s gonna be handled very well.” PLOTUS in Davos, Switzerland.

1/22/2020: 1 case. “We have it totally under control.” PLOTUS

1/30/2020: 7 cases in the U.S. “We think we have it very well under control...We think it’s going to have a very good ending for us...that I can assure you.” PLOTUS.

2/7/2020: 11 cases. The virus would “weaken when we get to April, with the warmer weather and then gone.” PLOTUS

2/23/2020: 57 cases. “We have it very much under control in this country.” PLOTUS

2/26/20: 58 cases. “...and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.” PLOTUS

2/27/2020: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle-it will disappear.” PLOTUS

2/28/2020: “...and this is their (referring to the Democrats) new hoax.” PLOTUS

2/29/2020: 74 cases; first death. “Everything is really under control.” PLOTUS

3/6/2020: 262 cases, 14 dead. “Anybody that wants a test can get a test.” PLOTUS

3/11/2020: 1281 cases, 36 dead. “The vast majority of Americans, the risk is very, very low.” PLOTUS

3/13/2020: 2179 cases, 47 dead. “But we’ve done a great job because we acted quickly.” PLOTUS

3/17/2020: 6421 cases, 108 dead, “We’re getting rid of this virus.” PLOTUS

3/24/2020: 43,925 cases, 547 dead. “I give it two weeks...we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.” PLOTUS

3/29/2020: 135,856 cases, 2,391 dead. “...by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery.” PLOTUS

See a pattern here? More to come.
