Donald Trump’s massive incompetence and failure to act decisively when the novel coronavirus arrived in the United States has led to the creation of an incredibly effective ad from the Biden campaign.
Using research that claims at least 36,000 Americans would still be alive if Trump had merely implemented social distancing measures nationwide one week earlier than he did, Trump is shown as dithering and ineffective. As the voice-over in the ad notes:
“Too scared to act, too panicked to tell the truth, too weak to lead. A president who can’t handle the crisis is no president at all.”
When all is said and done, that may well wind up being the most effective ad of the 2020 presidential race. And it drew immediate reaction on Twitter:

I’m not giving him that break..he didn’t freeze. He CHOSE to ignore what he was told. He LIED to the American people. That is an ACT that took thought. He should be held accountable!!!

It’s what happens when, to his surprise, a third rate TV game show host with malignant NPD finds himself POTUS. This makes him utterly unfit for any public office. He’s only interested in ratings for his show’s 2nd season not the 96,000 American dead his inaction has caused.

So far, Trump hasn’t responded to the Biden ad. That alone tells you just how effective it was: It left the always loudmouthed president at a complete loss for words.
