Impossible to Underestimate

It’s taken me three years of having him as president, but I’ve finally pinned down what is unique about him: he’s impossible to underestimate. No matter how frightening (appalling, inexcusable, dangerous, dim-witted, thoughtless, arrogant, et cetera) his behavior is, it will get worse. It always does.

By any sane and rational measure, Trump’s handling of the pandemic has been disastrous, lethal, and cartoonish—if I can use that word to describe 100,000 dead thus far—and we are nowhere near being out of the woods. In fact, due to his incompetence, the U.S. seems to be wandering right back into the woods, as infection rates are rising in many areas.
