“What a relief,” Malcolm said. “This whole coronavirus thing is finally behind us.”
“Where did you hear that?” Aaron asked.
“I just heard the president say it in his own voice at his daily coronavirus press briefing,” Malcolm said.
“Is that a fact?” Aaron asked sarcastically. “Behold the almighty King Trump, the stable genius who knows more about everything than the scientist, the doctors, and the generals. And you believe whatever bullshit comes out of his mouth, huh?”
“He’s the president, he should know, right?”
“Malcolm, my dumbass friend,” Aaron said, “it’s because of gullible imbeciles like you that our country is in the sad state it’s in.”
