On Thursday, President Donald Trump suggested that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was fabricating how many additional ventilators would be necessary to properly treat seriously ill coronavirus patients in the state.
Commenters on social media were enraged by Trump’s comments.
Did the coronavirus write Trump’s talking points? https://t.co/fRvHMMAzdl

Hey @realDonaldTrump I just listened to you say these words: "I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators.”
Fuck you and your lies.

TRUMP JUST NOW: "I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators."

BREAKING: Trump tells Hannity "I don't believe "[New York] will need 30,000 Ventilators"
Note that New York is currently risking lives by hooking two people up to a single ventilator, and is begging the Federal government for more ventilators.

Kind of like he thought we’d be down to zero cases right now…
Should we blame this sort of BS he says on his arrogance or stupidity?
