The "very stable genius" is no match for the corona virus

Apparently, Donald Trump has not yet fully plumbed the depths of moronic idiocy (and yes, I know that's repetitive and redundant, but I really think it needs to be emphasized and highlighted).
Asked by a journalist about the level of testing for the coronavirus across the US, the president answered: “This is a very brilliant enemy. You know, it’s a brilliant enemy. They develop drugs like the antibiotics. You see it. Antibiotics used to solve every problem. Now one of the biggest problems the world has is the germ has gotten so brilliant that the antibiotic can’t keep up with it.
Wow.  If the very stable genius of Donald Trump is no match for the corona virus's brilliance, what hope do we mere mortals have to stand against it?

The staggering irony of the situation is that Trump once bragged about being able to kill someone without losing any votes.  We are now quite literally putting that prediction to the test (make no mistake, Trump's "policies" -- or, more to the point, the lack thereof -- are and will continue to be directly responsible for many thousands of deaths).  So far, Trump's boast seems to be holding up pretty well, though some Trump supporters are starting to see through the charade.  I just wonder how high the body count is going to have to get before his prophecy actually fails.
