19. Isn't Trump's characterizing the COVID-19 warnings as a hoax concocted by Democrats...

... tantamount to claiming that those warnings and alerts were fake, false untrue, and in Trump’s inverted “reality,” were actually nothing more than scare-stories to make him look bad? And by implication, those warnings about the virus are not only something to be ignored, but something to be weaponized against Democrats, which they were indeed.

For awhile, social media was overflowing with belligerent garbage spread by bots and 45’s cult members, all centered on the insane idea that the COVID virus warnings and projections were really a “Democrat (sic) hoax” to ruin Trump’s fantastic, greatest-in-history presidency and his “soaring economy.”

Trump may not have specifically said, “the virus is a hoax,” but he drew the dots and connected half of them for his followers. He’s very cagey about directing his cult. It’s the one thing he does well, regrettably.
