Trump's incredible news conferences

Webster’s describes “Incredible” as “Too extraordinary and improbable to be believed.” In a recent news conference on coronavirus, Donald Trump mentioned “incredible” 12 times — almost all describing the good things done by him, his administration and members of his staff. Not to be outdone, he again used the term 12 times during the next day’s news conference. While using this ultimate term, I was not able to count the slightly less praiseworthy terms used just as often, “tremendous, unbelievable and fantastic.” Incredible!
