A very stable genius discusses combating the pandemic

At the eight-minute mark in this segment from Seth Meyers, we find Trump saying antibiotics used to be able to combat all kinds of diseases but that Covid-19 is such a “brilliant enemy” that is so “very smart and invisible” that antibiotics do not work against it.

Yes folks, the person who has described himself as a “very stable genius” does not know that antibiotics only work against bacteria and that the coronavirus is, you know, a virus.

Trump is a textbook case of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

    Just saw “Trump orders halt of US funding to World Health Organization”.

    Looks like he is lashing out in blind panic.

    More US state governors had better get organizing mutual support/protection groups.

    Well, both are costly disasters that we could well do without, so there’s that.
