Lets Put Honest Words To Trump’s Failure Over COVID-19

March 26, 2020

We reached a milestone this evening with news that the United States is now the country hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic.   Without a reasoned, coherent, and unified effort this pandemic is going to only grow more intense and deadly.

This is the type of 3 A.M. phone call that so many of us were talking about in the 2016 election.  This is the type of crisis we never wanted to have occurred, and the reason we stressed the need to have an educated person sit in the Oval Office.  We now see what happens when the village idiot is elected.

What happened over the past many weeks is a shocking display of ineptitude, sloppy and slipshod work from the Trump White House, and stunning disregard for sciences and data-driven policy creation.  This Administration simply failed to take the pandemic seriously.  The world was awash in sick and dying people from the virus, and yet broad testing for the virus in our country was denied.  We now have a second crisis of a shortage of masks and protective gear to protect doctors and nurses on the front lines, as well as ventilators to keep critically ill people alive.

This is complete incompetence from the highest office in the land.  When it comes to Trump there are only a few items that matter.  First, the infantile mind is bored at the White House and wants to play golf.  He needs to pretend that all is fine so he can lumber about as he breathes hard while hitting a ball.  He wants to mitigate at all cost the unemployment numbers as they run counter to his election-year plans.  If a high number of elderly people die as a result what does he care?  The very words and actions from Trump this week alone proves he is more concerned with money loss than lives saved.
