President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the nation about the coronavirus at 6 p.m. Wednesday and even considering appointing a "coronavirus czar."


Many are speculating that the czar will be another responsibility of his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

The stock market fell Monday and Tuesday by 1800 points, prompting Trump economist Larry Kudlow to take to the airwaves to reassure investors that the United States government has the coronavirus under control.

Despite promises that all is well, Trump's appointees flopped when testifying to the U.S. Senate Tuesday. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf seemed confused about the length of time it would take before a coronavirus vaccine would be available to Americans. Wolf said that it would be a year and a half, where the president indicated it would be mere months. An NIH expert fact-checked Trump promptly.

The coronavirus is the administration's first major crisis, and after reducing the number of government scientists and cutting public health funding, Trump is already being criticized.

A 2 percent fatality rate, compared to the flu, which has a 0.1 percent fatality rate, is hardly amusing, but the internet made the best of a difficult situation by mocking the president and speculating about who will be in charge of the virus response.
