Too Little, Too Late: The Case of You Know Who and the Coronavirus

In a recent post, I wrote that the actions regarding you know who and the coronavirus.

Now he admits (in his own way) that he made a mistake.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am the only one bothered that all of this could have been prevented? As of today, in the United States alone, over 200,000 people have contracted the virus and nearly 5,000 people have died. Our healthcare workers are overwhelmed beyond measure, millions are out of work and we are on the brink of an economic recession/depression. If the warnings are true, nearly a quarter of a million Americans could die before we finally get a handle on this disease.

He could have played President weeks, if not months ago. He could have enacted the Defense Production Act and ensured that the national stockpile of PPEs, ventilators and other necessary equipment was available if needed.

But he didn’t. He downplayed the facts and ignored the growing spread. Why? He did so to save his skin and his chances of being re-elected in the fall.

Over the last three years, the list of reasons why this man should not be in office has grown to be long and arduous. As far as I am concerned, his inaction in regards to the coronavirus is the #1 reason why he needs to removed from office in November.
