Pundits eager to see the end of Trump have rushed to compare what they view as his failure to properly deal with the coronavirus outbreak to legendary disasters from recent and ancient history, regardless of how well those disasters reflect current events.
Others made fun of the vultures circling the president, suggesting the various comparisons were merely cartoonish politicization of an epidemic that hadn’t visibly sunk its teeth into the American population.
Media: The coronavirus could be Trump’s Katrina! No, wait, Trump’s Chernobyl! No, wait, it could be like if Chernobyl blew up and then Katrina took all the radiation and blew it everywhere, mixed in with thousands of killer sharks sucked up from the ocean depths!
