The Coronavirus demonstrated to the world how a single disease could bring one of the most powerful countries in the world, America, to its knees.
Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta’s Nightmare Scenario (2021) investigates the complete dysfunction that was the US response effort, led by the Trump administration team. From the beginning, it was clear the White House was unfit, unprepared, and woefully inept at handling the situation. It took months for the government to enact any serious safety precautions, and by that point it was too late. Hundreds of thousands of Americans died as a result.
Trump’s response team was plagued with contentious infighting, as there was never clear leadership or a unified front. The president himself was the worst problem, as his insensitive, tone-deaf comments constantly shocked the nation into two polarizing sides - with him, or against him.
