The Internet is rolling its eyes today at something Trump told Sean Hannity in an interview last night:
I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you’re going to major hospitals sometimes, they’ll have two ventilators. And now, all of a sudden, they’re saying, can we order 30,000 ventilators?
Hannity is as ignorant and foolish about these things as Trump, so he didn’t challenge the president. But here’s what I wish Hannity had said:
Mr. President, none of us has a crystal ball. We can’t be certain about the future. If it turns out you’re wrong and we do need those ventilators, how many people will die?
