Is it me or is you know who’s reaction to the coronvirus changing from the every day incredulous to downright scary?
As I write this post, the number of cases in the United States, there are over 100,000 Americans who are suffering from the virus. We now lead the world in the number of cases. Given what we are going through, a wise and prudent President would not be fudging the numbers or demanding that state Governors (especially Democratic Governors) kiss his a** to receive the badly needed aid.
But you know who is neither wise or prudent. According to an article in the Daily Beast, he advised Vice President Mike Pence that if the Governors who are coming to the Federal government for aid are not nice to him, Vice President Pence can ignore their calls.
In the article, you know who is quoted as stating the following:
“He calls all the governors,” Trump said. “I tell him, I mean, I’m a different type of person. I say Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington, you’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan.”
“If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,” Trump said.
What this moron ignores is that the virus does not care what political party one is affiliated with or who one voted for. It is indiscriminate in who it infects. He also ignores the fact that it is not HIS money that he is refusing to distribute. It is the money of every hardworking American taxpayer. We pay taxes so that if a catastrophic event (such as a pandemic) should occur, our government has the ability to take care of this country.
I don’t know if he saw the cover story of the New York Post, but if he hasn’t, he should.
What is happening in this video was preventable. I say was because had he acted appropriately back in January or early February, this video would not need to exist. But it does and it screams out what needs to be done.
That is, if he is willing and able to listen. But I doubt he will.
