Tweety McTreason on Friday sparked outrage on Twitter after he appeared to joke about a computer model that showed “hundreds of thousands of people are going to die.”

“The models show hundreds of thousands of people are going to die and you know what I want to do?” Trump told reporters during the daily White House coronavirus press briefing.

“I want to come way under the model,” he said. “The professionals did the models and I was never involved in a model – but – at least this kind of a model.”

“But you know what, hundreds of thousands of people they said are going to die,” he added.

Did Trump just make a joke about being into female models while answering a question about the government’s projection that more than 100,000 Americans will die because of this pandemic?

“I was never involved with a model. At least this kind of a model,” the president says.
