Having been reduced to silence by the power of the cult of Trump to run roughshod over the Constitution and established law, the first crisis not of President Trump’s own making cries out for comment.
If Trump’s pathological lying and total ineptitude, as disqualifiers for executing the office of president, are not plain as day, please open your peepers. You’ll probably be repulsed by what you see, as it’s quite ugly, most recently becoming downright dangerous and deadly now to increasing numbers of our own people.
What else would you expect? A competent response to a worldwide pandemic requiring worldwide cooperation from President America First? The one who 2 years ago, in cutting wasteful spending and dismantling the Obama legacy, fired the National Security Council pandemic team and closed pandemic prevention offices in 38 out of 48 countries?
Of course, he now denies any knowledge of who might be responsible, while the record reveals the wrongdoing deceiver to be as guilty as sin.
From Trump’s initial response that everything’s under control, no problem here,15 cases in a couple of days near zero; to his constant ridicule of talk of a problem as a “hoax,” Democratic sour grapes, and a continuation of the impeachment hoax; then the claim he knew it was a pandemic all along; and now his racist, divisive, hateful characterization of the virus; this pathetic individual is continuously killing fellow Americans.
This, unfortunately, is what he does: divide people into warring camps (us vs. them), making “others” into scapegoats for “our” problems. His talk of a “foreign” virus, and now a “Chinese” virus, only further feeds the fervid flames of fatal hate.
Viruses are residents of Earth, recognizing no national borders, traveling where they please. Silly president!
