By far the most recurring utterances from Mr. Trump in the briefings are self-congratulations, roughly 600 of them, which are often predicated on exaggerations and falsehoods.

Mr. Trump's attempts to display empathy or appeal to national unity (about 160 instances) amount to only a quarter of the number of times he complimented himself or a top member of his team.

Donald Trump expends enormous energy creating and maintaining a delusional system. He lives in a false reality. This is what has always made him most dangerous. Whatever he does is brilliant, from his point of view. There are therefore no self-imposed checks on personal behavior.

The US has about one third of the world's confirmed cases and about one quarter of the deaths from COVID19. We are 4.25% of the world's population.

Great job!

I understand that Trump supporters are unable to understand math and facts, but numbers are the coldest hardest facts you can find.
It's algebra in real life.

Right wingers don't support any system of thought that can prove they are wrong (e.g., science, math, logic). Kind of like vampires and mirrors.
