"Trump apparently read from a teleprompter on Wednesday night. After weeks of dismissing the threat of a pandemic and of continuing to obsess about his own personal grievances, he finally sounded grave… precisely because Trump was not at his worst… in the extraordinary situation of a pandemic, what we are witnessing is peak Trump." (Gessen, 2020)
