Washington Post: There is no good explanation for Trump’s coronavirus comments to Bob Woodward

Washington Post: There is no good explanation for Trump’s coronavirus comments to Bob Woodward. “President Trump has made a months-long series of often bizarre comments about the coronavirus — from frequently downplaying it and saying it would just go away, to hyperbolically pitching unproven treatments for it, to ridiculing masks and then briefly embracing them before ridiculing them again, to repeatedly floating potential death tolls that would be surpassed in very short order. The question, as it often is with Trump, is whether the president truly believes his own hype and is just that disconnected from the reality of the situation, or whether he’s just saying stuff to get through a news cycle. A new book from legendary Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward suggests that it’s very much the latter.”
