You Should Take Responsibility, Mr. President

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.

New Randy Rainbow Video-“The CORONAVIRUS Lament – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody”

It has been said that in challenging times, how one responds to that challenge speaks volumes.

Last night, Randy Rainbow released his newest video, The CORONAVIRUS Lament – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody.

Based on the song Adelaide’s Lament from the 1950’s musical, Guys and Dolls, Rainbow paints a picture as only he can of a President and a Presidential administration whose head is in the literal sand.

I read somewhere (though I don’t recall where and I cannot find a link) that the comparisons between for President Jimmy Carter and his handling of the Iranian hostage crisis and the way you know who is not reacting as he should to this crisis. The writer predicted that like Jimmy Carter, you know who will be a one term President.

From this person’s mouth to G-d and the voter’s ears.
