“And that, kids, is how temporary provisional acting president Kushner started the Sino-American war of 2021!”— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) April 29, 2020
Jared Kushner says Trump is focused on response to China, will take whatever actions are necessary to hold them accountable https://t.co/wrvsLTKbC3
... Jared Kushner will actually do anything. I mean: what has he done so far?
The US just surpassed 60,000 confirmed deaths from coronavirus, a benchmark previous projections said the US would not reach until August.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 29, 2020
Clearly the peak has passed and we must return to business as usual! Yes?
This is why I say that the manufacture of confusion will be basic to his 2020 campaign. It's not meant to persuade anyone who knows why public health experts and governors keep talking about testing. It tries to create confusion and raise search costs for reliable information. https://t.co/PPysciycdQ— Jay Rosen (@jayrosen_nyu) April 29, 2020
Or it's just Trump's way of coping because he's so plainly and utterly incompetent and out of his depth. And you don't need a fact-checker to work that one out, especially since Trump can get tested every day if he wants, and can limit who comes near him as much as he likes. Even ordinary Americans who aren't paying much attention understand that much.

Ask Siri for statistics on how many 20-year olds die of flu-induced strokes, or how many flu victims suffer permanent lung damage thereafter. I'll wait.
And to prove there truly is no bottom, none at all:
In a sales pitch that absolutely no one has asked for, the White House Gift Shop is selling COVID-19 commemorative coins, emblazoned with slogans like “World vs The Unseen Enemy” and “Everyday HEROES Suited Up.” As the deadly virus continues to kill thousands of people and cripple daily life for most Americans, the privately-run White House store is asking buyers to fork out $100 (reduced from $125!) to commemorate the “historic moment.” One coin has an image of a COVID-19 spore superimposed on a world map, while a second coin features an empty White House podium with the names of the coronavirus task force members surrounding it including President Trump, Vice President Pence, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and medical experts Drs. Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci.
And yes, it's real.
