Rather than speak at the Centers for Disease Control on Friday, President Donald Trump should have just played golf instead as he had originally planned because all he did was make the coronavirus panic even worse.

But he changed his mind at the last second and spoke at the CDC anyway, and it was an embarrassing disaster as usual.

Among the most ridiculous statements, Trump bragged about his “natural ability” to understand science because his uncle was a professor at MIT.

“All these doctors say, ‘how do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability, maybe I should have done this instead of running for president,” Trump said.

Trump could not even understand how vaccines work, having to be repeatedly told by Big Pharma CEOs and health officials that a vaccine for the virus won’t be ready for another 12-18 months. Furthermore, he actually said people could go to work with the virus and get better.

As if that weren’t embarrassing enough, after Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar tried to explain that more tests are on the way, Trump butted in to claim that anybody that needs a test can be tested right now and claimed the tests are “perfect” like his extortion phone call to Ukraine.

“But as of right now and yesterday, anybody that needs a test, that’s the important thing,” he said. “And the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”

Seriously, Trump says this even though coronavirus test kits at the CDC were recently found to have been contaminated.

It’s little wonder why the world is panicking so much about coronavirus right now. The more Trump desperately tries to calm the nation, the more he actually makes things worse because he is obsessed with making himself look good as all hell breaks loose. It seems that no one is causing the coronavirus panic more than him. This isn’t a presidency, it’s clown car that has crashed and burned.
