8. Lack of leadership in the U.S. for sure

Trump has been all over the map and back, from "It's a hoax," "It'll go away like magic" to "Try these magic beans, they probably won't kill you!" Steady, consistent leadership with clear and concise messaging, and what do you know? People get it! They make those small personal sacrifices for the greater good for everyone.

Instead, the public has gotten contradictory statements out of this administration. Competent people who know what they're doing have been cashiered. Well-connected ignorant cronies are put in charge of things they don't know anything about. Half measures and half-assed measures are trotted out, then abandoned. Confusion reigns, and the stench of grift wafts off of every pronouncement from the White House. Result: Thousands and thousands of dead bodies, billions of dollars wasted, and an inordinate amount of time is spent on confused and ignorant knuckleheads frightened down to their toenails and massing in the streets, paving the way for the next wave of infections to spread.

Categorical, utter, catastrophic incompetence.
