Speaker Nancy Pelosi unleashed a devastating ad against Trump, laying waste to any delusion his supporters might have that he is handling this pandemic competently or with care. It runs clips of him downplaying the danger posed by COVID-19, despite clear warnings from people in his own administration as early as January.
It charts the rise of illness and death ravaging the nation, the toll being taken on doctors, nurses, caregivers, while superimposing him trumpeting his desire to eliminate the Affordable Care Act.
It shows our journalistic crown jewel, Rachel Maddow, making a dire prediction that has already come true:

It ends with the words, "He fiddles while Americans die," and the haunting sound of a heart monitor's flat-lining beep.

Advisors are torn? They their boss doesn't like criticism? Boo-f*cking-hoo. How many of them voted to have him removed from office when they had the chance?
