Mister "I Don't Take Responsibility for Anything" Blames Everyone Else.

President Trump publicly signaled his frustration on Sunday with Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the federal government’s top infectious disease expert, after the doctor said more lives could have been saved from the coronavirus if the country had been shut down earlier.

Mr. Trump reposted a Twitter message that said “Time to #FireFauci” as he rejected criticism of his slow initial response to the pandemic that has now killed more than 22,000 people in the United States. The president privately has been irritated at times with Dr. Fauci, but the Twitter post was the most explicit he has been in letting that show publicly.
The tweet came amid a flurry of messages blasted out by the president on Sunday defending his handling of the coronavirus, which has come under sharp criticism, and pointing the finger instead at China, the World Health Organization, President Barack Obama, the nation’s governors, Congress, Democrats generally and the news media.
Trump is the guy who walks into the Oval Office and sits behind the Resolute Desk. He is responsible for the actions or failure to act of his administration. He may think that he is starring in a reality show and that the only metric is how many people are tuning in to watch the Trump Show, but that is just fucking twisted bullshit.

Shorter Trump: "The buck always stops somewhere else."

Considerable contrast to the presidents before where the buck did
stop at that desk.

No, that's not it at all. The Bucks ($$) (all of them) stop at his desk, any responsibility or blame continues on forever in an infinite loop.

He said he wanted this job. Perhaps he lied?

For Truman [and many others] the buck was responsibility,
not the cash the grifter-in-chief scoops up for himself.

It may be a matter of the usage of the word.

In Drumpfs case he is just a sack of pus.
