As, in late September, the second wave of COVID-19 deaths and infections gained traction, President Donald Trump assured Minden, Nevada, Red Cap Minions, “We are rounding the turn.“
In mid-October, President Trump’s fourth Chief of Staff in less than 4 years, Mark Meadows, advised CNN reporter Jake Tapper, “We are not going to control the Pandemic . . . “ When Tapper asks, “Why are we not going to control the Pandemic?”, Meadows’s reply, “Because it is a virus just like the Flu . . . We are making effort to contain it . . . “
“Rounding the turn,” “not going to control the Pandemic,” “making efforts to contain it.” Excuse me? I’m confused.
