This cartoon depicts a New York Times news article printed May 24, 2020 listing just 1,000 names of the nearly 100,000 who had died from the coronavirus since January 2020. In the bottom right corner, Trump is shown attempting to wash away the list of the dead with bleach. Trump had previously made the absurd suggestion that people who contracted Covid could cure the virus by ingesting Bleach. This comic illustrates Trump's desperate, disrespectful, and foolish attempts at solving the pandemic.
