The “Daily Show” host examined Trump’s management of the coronavirus outbreak Monday, particularly a series of bizarre ramblings made during the president’s visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday. During that visit, Trump ― who has spent recent weeks contradicting advice from health experts and downplaying the seriousness of the escalating crisis ― got sidetracked when a reporter asked him how hospitals can prepare to handle an influx of patients.
“You know, my uncle was a great person. He was at MIT. He taught at MIT for, I think, like a record number of years. He was a great supergenius. Dr. John Trump,” Trump said. “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”
“I’m not sure Trump has a natural ability for science,” Noah said. “Especially considering that he thinks scientific knowledge can be passed on through his uncle.”
