Totally Under Control is the name of two recent works:
- A new documentary film that was released yesterday, and
- a print comic and motion comic.
While they were created by completely unrelated teams, both are about the Trump administration’s coronavirus response, and both take their name from a statement by Donald Trump made on January 22, in which he downplayed the novel coronavirus:
“We have it totally under control.”
