New York Times columnist Paul Krugman thinks he’s got the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak all figured out.

Like many in the mainstream media and most Democrats, he’s spent the last several months pounding the anti-Trump/DeSantis/Abbott drum, suggesting the President and both governors have been incompetent throughout the pandemic and that if it weren’t for them the United States wouldn’t have cases in the millions and deaths in the hundreds of thousands.

In one recent argument over the weekend, Krugman accused both DeSantis and Abbott of “killing” people in their states due to Trump’s “malign influence“:

In another tweet bashing DeSantis (who Kruggie has perhaps targeted even more than Trump), Krugman idiotically compared Florida’s Wuhan virus response to Italy’s, rhetorically asking “Where does DeSantis go to give his apology?” The question was a snide rephrasing of a National Review headline from May that asked where DeSantis should go to get his apology:


As is often the case with Krugman, there were some serious flaws with his comparison, which people were quick to point out:


Unfortunately, that won’t happen, but maybe a friend or colleague can urge him to read his own newspaper so he can learn all about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous handling of the Wuhan virus in the state of New York, which enabled the spread of the virus throughout the entire country – because when Krugman rants about how Republican governors “killed people”, he always conveniently leaves out the state with the most deaths and the second-highest per capita death rate (behind New Jersey).

In addition to his ridiculous Italy comparison, his ommissions of Cuomo’s dismal track record are telling. Very telling.
