When President Donald Trump tried to capitalize on an edited clip of Joe Biden’s recent verbal miscue about the coronavirus death toll, Twitter blue checks responded by roasting Trump over his own gaffes, and of the actual death toll he has overseen.
Trump and his supporters have been trying to hype a clip of Biden from a Thursday event in which he said “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID,” but then immediately corrected himself by saying “I mean over 120,000 dead from Covid.”
Corrupt Joe Biden said yesterday that we have over “120 million” people dead of Coronavirus!

Corrupt Donald Trump caused more than 120,000 Americans to die by downplaying the coronavirus pandemic and telling people that the cases would go down to zero by summer, asking people to take hydroxychloroquine despite fatal heart problems, and to inject bleach into their blood.

You did NOTHING after learning that Putin paid the Taliban bounties on American soldiers, you traitorous piece of shit.
Oh, I forgot: you wanted to REWARD Russia by inviting them to the G7. What a scumbag.

Which he immediately corrected.
You’re not REALLY going to go down this road of politicians who mangle words are you? And are you really bragging on 120,000 dead?
Also, didn’t you just spend all day on a golf course while Russians are paying terrorists to kill our Troops? https://t.co/dyPArbUfop

– you said you were looking into the “oranges” of the Mueller investigation
– you said that Revolutionary soldiers were guarding airports
– you called Tim Cook “Tim Apple”
– you think windmills cause cancer
honcho, are you really sure this is a road you want to go down

There’s always a tweet of Trump, 138 million killed in a country of 21 million population is beyond global parody. pic.twitter.com/i54xrSEOME
