In any business, regardless of the particulars of that business, it is known and accepted that when sh*t happens, it will be the boss who takes responsibility. He or she will step up to the plate and do what needs to be done to resolve the problem.
Over the weekend, our illustrious President stated the following:
“I don’t take responsibility at all,” Trump said defiantly, pointing to an unspecified “set of circumstances” and “rules, regulations and specifications from a different time.”
When the late former President Harry Truman was in office, he had a plaque on his desk with the following statement “The buck stops here“. In order words, he took responsibility for what was happening in the country.
It’s true that you know is not directly responsible for the coronavirus to entering the United States. But he is, for better or for worse, President. The buck stops with him whether he likes it or not. The nation looks to him for comfort, guidance and support as we try to get through this challenging time. The fact that he is stepping back from taking responsibility should be the final nail in the coffin that is his Presidency.
Let’s hope that voters remember this statement come November.
