U.S. deaths from the novel coronavirus topped 60,000 on Wednesday and the outbreak will soon be deadlier than any flu season since 1967, according to a Reuters tally.

Trump is deeply saddened to learn that he won't be able to grift these marks anymore.

Estimates are short. It is really 90,000 at least.

The fact is, and it's a sad one, that Trumpites are never going to be impressed by the number of American dead due to COVID.

They're merely going to become ever more annoyed that you bring it up.

Well, punkinhead is likely not going to get his big mayday-style parade of tanks this summer.

Mebbe he could commission the design and construction of a nice Vietnam-style memorial wall for all of his dead Americans instead.

No way to predict how long that wall will be yet.

But I think it's a good idea. The COVID-19 dead were people with lives and hopes and families. The world needs to be reminded that Donald killed them.

Remember when Republicans used to pretend that "All Lives Matter"?

Ahhh, good times.

How many have to die before that punk Kushner will admit this is just not a great success story?

There is no such number.

Kushner would rather shoot a million dead himself before admitting any incompetence.

Jared Kushner, AKA "Fratsputin" is only sucking up to his father-in-law. Jeebus Tapdancing Crow, I hope nobody takes him seriously.

Their whining will follow two general inconsistent routes, I think.

The first, and easiest, will be to whine that the models were wrong and that it wasn't as bad as the worst case model, so there stupid Dem!

The second will be that X number of dead is much lower than it could have been without Trump's exemplary leadership, so there stupid Dem!

Both of them allow them to call it a "fact" while ignoring their abuse of the fact.

61,000 dead.

What a success story!!

Can't wait until we reach 100,000 dead. Then we will really be even more successful!

We will be the most successful country on earth! In the entire universe!

So much success. How much success can we take? We be dying we so happy from all this wonderful success.

62,000 winners!

Death is the winner here.

I know for a fact that this number does not change one thought in my dad's head because he keeps posting that the number is significantly inflated by counting deaths not actually related. He just yesterday posted a meme saying that car crash deaths are also being counted as covid deaths, and that is just one of the many such posts lately. The Trump cult is not taking any of this seriously. I will say that I am surprised my dad has been quarantining and following social distancing guidelines so I give him credit for something.

We get this down my way, of course.

So, are the Trumpites waiting for Trump to disavow the COVID death total? And if not, why not?

I'm almost to the point of giving up even talking to trumpers. Their response to almost any discussion is to make ---- up and attack.

I've got to watch my blood pressure.

Maybe it's because we don't have a national health system, but Americans know next to nothing of public health.
Despite health care consuming 18% of our GDP.
Many Americans don't even know we have a uniformed Public Health Service.
Americans know we have a Surgeon General, but don't know what he presides over, or why he's a General, in a Navy uniform.

Pro Tip: If you need to use an expletive, racial slur, ethnic slur, ALL you have to do is swap out all the vowels in your naughty word with x's or some other letter to deliberately misspell your word, and the DR moderators might let it slide.

I could envision a scenario in which 90% of the country is killed off by this virus, and Trump stands up and grunts, "It'd've been a hundred percent if it hadn't been for me." And 38 percent of the 10 percent of Americans still living would be chanting MAGA MAGA MAGA!
