Speaking to the nation about the novel coronavirus on Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump, for some reason, took a number of deep, labored breaths. And — because the internet is the internet — someone brilliantly edited all those moments into one disturbing supercut.
Twitter user @schnd, whose website lists his real name as , posted that his daughter put together the edit.
“my teenage daughter edited together a version of trump’s address with only heavy breathing moments and I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of her,” @schnd wrote.
The video really is something.
Folks online appreciated the fine video editing, chief among them progressive documentarian Michael Moore.
“Best short film of the year.! [sic]” Moore wrote on Twitter.
Best short film of the year.!
(C-SPAN also accidentally kept airing him live after his “God Bless America” sign off and captured more heavy breathing, a request by him for someone to go grab him a wipe for his hands, and the F-bomb he uttered. I’ll try to put it up.) https://t.co/lX32XFDU6J

“I’m truly honored for this award…I’d like to thank the academy and my 2013 Mac book air,” @dyl_seidel wrote in response.
The deep breathing wasn’t the only bit of weirdness from the Trump address. A hot mic from C-SPAN broadcast him dropping an F-bomb beforehand and sighing deeply afterward.
