Trump Is Trying to Blame the W.H.O. for Slow Pandemic Response but It Sounds Just Like He's Slamming Himself

Another day, another display of President Donald Trump's instability at a White House press briefing.

Just a day after his most unhinged briefing yet, Trump announced that he'd be halting all funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The WHO is responsible for overseeing coordination between countries on healthcare, diseases, medical equipment and other health issues, making the organization vital in the face of a global pandemic like this one.


Trump proceeded to blame the organization for the hundreds of thousands of virus cases confirmed in the United States, claiming that the WHO favored China and assisted in helping China subvert vital information.

In a screed against the organization, Trump made one of the most ironic claims of his presidency.

Watch below.

Trump said:

"[T]hose tasked with protecting us by being truthful and transparent failed to do so. It would have been so easy to be truthful. And so much death has been caused by their mistakes."

On the same day, the Washington Post's fact checker updated its count of false statements made by the President since his inauguration.

Trump has told 18,000 lies in only 1,070 days in office—an average of over 15 lies per day.

The irony that Trump accused the WHO of not being truthful was apparently lost on him.

But not on anyone else.




People were stunned at Trump's accidental self-own.


Rest in peace, Irony. You had a good run.




Trump's decimation of his glass house aside, his decision to halt funding for the WHO couldn't come at a worse time.



This is not normal.
