Could you congratulate yourself for something 600 times? Trump did

Trump has never done anything I know of where he should be congratulated. Therefore, it seems both unbelievable and bizarre he could come up with 600 pats on the back...

Thanks to our neighbor
But he did and it was for another most ludicrous reason, his handling of the coronavirus situation. Here is DAILY BEASTS headline: "Trump Has Congratulated Himself 600 Times During Coronavirus Briefings, Says Report." The New York times analyzed all Trump's press briefings to get this number concluding, “The level of self-congratulations that occurs every day at these press conferences is unprecedented.”
And it would seem that Moscow Mitch McConnell has taken up Donald Trump's mantle exhibiting his brand of ignorance and idiocy. According to the Washington Post has basically told U.S. states to drop dead by refusing them aid and saying you are pretty much on your own. Although he has moderately backed off this position, it is a clear sign of this slimeball's disdain for American citizens, and his aversion to our democracy.

With the current press of the public to reopen the U.S. economy amid over 1 million cases of COVID-19 in this country, growing on a daily basis, 30,000+ since yesterday, and almost 60,000 deaths, there is reason to pause and reflect on this move. Here is a statement from an expert: "Infectious disease expert Michael Osterholm warned that the states starting to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic 'will pay a big price later on.'” There's more...
"Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday that states like Georgia, Colorado and others that are easing social distancing restrictions were 'putting gasoline on fire.'
“I think right now, this is one of the things we’ve learned, if we’re going to learn to live with this, then you just don’t walk in the face of it and spit in its eye, because it will hit you,” said Osterholm.
Taking out the Trash
Here's the Guardian's opinion: "Trump is a danger to the American people. But the Republicans refuse to stop him." Bingo. This hits the jackpot and my blog posts over the years portrays the one man most responsible for this, Moscow Mitch McConnell. The Guardia expands...
"I don’t know how many psychological profiles I have read of him in which he is diagnosed as a malignant narcissist, or it is suggested he has a cognitive impairment, or suffers from delusional thinking or a sociopathic inability to experience basic empathy. Yada yada yada. None of it matters. He promised an end to “American carnage”, but that is exactly what he is presiding over."
By the way, he didn't look like congratulating himself after walking off the podium recently after remarks on his disinfectant decision. He said nothing. 

MR. PRESIDENT: If you look frail, if you talk frail, and if you walk frail, you must be frail...
