A leftist columnist seemingly took pleasure in the fact that the US has become the country with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus by mocking President Trump and proclaiming “Who’s the shithole country now?”
Julia Ioffe, who writes for GQ, tweeted out the inane comment along with a link to a New York Times story on the development.

Of course, Ioffe provided no salient facts or useful information, such as President Trump’s assertion that the spike in confirmed cases is down to more robust testing being rolled out.
Nor did Ioffe indicate that in comparison with other hard hit countries, the mortality rate in the US stands at 1.5%, which equates to much fewer deaths per confirmed cases than Italy (10%), Spain (8%), Iran (7.6%) and France (6%).
No, Ioffe simply wanted to vent her pent up Trump derangement syndrome.
Americans are not amused:
If you needed anymore evidence these people hate America —> https://t.co/dWMIpzKhzk

The left and their media partners are rooting for the virus. Waiting for the “death to America” chants. https://t.co/jVsfCOIxSV

This is precisely how the so-called “elite” media feels about our country. https://t.co/mzVquZCxqj

In WW2 Japan had to take a Japanese American out of the USA to broadcast propaganda. Today our media does it for China for free. https://t.co/VGrrMNme9h

Meanwhile, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, slammed the media Thursday during the daily briefing, for hyping as yet unverified claims that there will not be enough beds or ventilators to deal with coronavirus patients:
Low-key scolding the media, Dr Deborah Birx says the data doesn't match the doomsday media predictions or analysis. She just destroyed the media narrative coming from CNN, MSNBC and progressive blue checkmarks. They tell @realdonaldtrump to listen to experts. But will THEY? pic.twitter.com/zbbR2vSl2N
