CNN's John Avlon debunks lies told by President Donald Trump (Screen cap).

CNN’s John Avlon on Tuesday delivered a scathing takedown of President Donald Trump’s handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has now claimed the lives of 200,000 Americans.

During one of his “Reality Check” segments, Avlon warned against growing numb to the staggering death toll from the disease, which President Donald Trump insisted would “go away” seven months ago.

“In less than seven months, we have lost nearly four times the number of Americans who died in battle during the first World War, two-thirds the number of Americans we lost in the second World War, nearly six times the number of American soldiers killed in Korea,” he explained. “And we’ve lost almost three-and-a-half times more of our fellow Americans than the total lost in Vietnam.”

Avlon then hammered Trump and his allies for trying to spin this shocking death toll into a positive.

“There’s just no way to spin having both 4 percent of the world’s population, but 20 percent of the world’s deaths, as a success,” he said. “This isn’t a success story — it’s American carnage. It’s 200,000 tragedies. And it didn’t need to be this way.”

SNL does campaign ad asking what they’ll do without Trump to trash — then they have a revelation

Published

"What is the news even going to be about now?" the Saturday Night Life cast joked, saying that without President Donald Trump.

The fake ad began saying that everyone knows it could be the most important election of our lives.

"And the two choices couldn't be more different," the ad continues. "Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden? Can we survive four more years of scandal, name-calling, and racial division? Or do we want a leader who unites the country? I want to vote for Biden because he's better, smarter. better and better."

But, the cast members confessed, "I'm worried, because if Donald Trump isn't president -- when what are they going to talk about? Like, what would our conversations even be? Because the only thing I talked about for four years is Donald Trump. Every single day I tell someone, 'Can you believe what Trump just said?' My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he's gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks. He changed the game. He called the attorney general he appointed mentally retarded. That's some next-level sh*t!"

Published

"Saturday Night Live" began this week's show with a recap of the presidential debate showing President Donald Trump confusing Kirsten Welker with Hoda Kotb, Mindy Lahiri, and at one point, even a waitress.

Alec Baldwin explained that the coronavirus loved him so much that it didn't want to leave his body because it was so beautiful.

He also explained that he couldn't share his coronavirus plan because it was still under audit like his taxes.

Jim Cary toned down his portrayal of Joe Biden from last week's over-the-top yell-fest.

"Learning to live with it? We're learning to die with it, man!" said the fake Biden, quoting the real Biden, but with a glint of Clint Eastwood.
