Nearly 17,000 Americans have died as a result of coronavirus pandemic, but President Donald Trump wants us all to pat him on the back because the stock market has had a few good days recently.

Friday morning, rather than updating the nation on COVID-19 or urging the American people to stand strong in the face of the death they see around them, Trump bragged about the Dow Jones Industrial Average:

Be sure and notice that the president conveniently neglected to mention that 10 of the largest stock market drops in U.S. history also took place on his watch and 10 percent of the American workforce has filed for unemployment.

Reaction to Trump’s tone-deaf tweet was immediate and harsh:

Just when you think Donald Trump cannot possibly be more heartless and narcissistic, he lowers the bar yet again.
