Americans Don’t Get How Badly They’re Handling COVID-19 – The Atlantic

Thomas Chatterton Williams:

American leadership has politicized the pandemic instead of trying to fight it. I see no preparedness, no coordinated top-down leadership of the sort we’ve enjoyed in Europe. I see only empty posturing, the sad spectacle of the president refusing to wear a mask, just to own the libs. What an astonishing self-inflicted wound.

The rest of the world is looking at us and seeing nothing but failure. The US is a joke. Thanks, Trump voters.
