This comparison of Donald Trump and Joe Biden talking Covid, one year apart, is an extraordinary watch
President Joe Biden gave a televised address to the nation about the coronavirus exactly one year after Donald Trump did the same thing.
And over on Twitter @therecount has done a supercut comparing and contrasting what the president – and former president – had to say and it really is worth 99 seconds of your time.

Just extraordinary stuff, moving and infuriating in just about equal measure.
And here are a few of the things people were saying about it.
Americans can thank their lucky stars that the pandemic didn't begin during Trump's first year in office.
