Trump Gets Roasted On Twitter For His “Great” COVID-19 Reviews
Twitter was set ablaze with mock reviews of President Trump’s Covid-19 response. On Memorial Day Trump sent out a tweet claiming that he is getting great reviews for his response to the COVID-19 crisis. Twitter wasted no time going after the President.
Great reviews on our handling of Covid 19, sometimes referred to as the China Virus. Ventilators, Testing, Medical Supply Distribution, we made a lot of Governors look very good – And got no credit for so doing. Most importantly, we helped a lot of great people!

The President’s bragging comes as coronavirus deaths continue to climb despite Trump’s claims. Twitter decided to give the President their own reviews of his pandemic performance. Some tweets pointed out Trump’s delayed response to the virus. Some users accused the President of being the reason the “participation trophy” was created. One user asked if these reviews the President was referring to were on “rotten Tomatoes.”
