Just to be clear about what is happening…

If you live in the United States of America, the malfeasance, incompetence, and self-centeredness of Donald Trump and his cronies have resulted in needless thousands of dead and even more thousands infected with COVID-19. These dead and sick are your friends, neighbors, relatives, and loved ones. While it is true that some people would inevitably sicken and die in this pandemic, Trump’s actions and lack of action raised the toll significantly. His lies and stupidity have misled the public, making the health and economic impacts of this pandemic much worse.

There can be only one response to this calamity of epic proportions. Trump must be voted out of office in November. There is no other rational response. This coming election, you must do your duty, vote Trump out of office so the U.S. can again have some competent leadership.

Befuddled in the White House

The current occupant of the White House shows us all we need to know about his approach to the COVID-19 crisis. Visiting the CDC in Atlanta, he is clearly old, confused, and in over his head. He doesn’t realize how much he doesn’t understand as he holds up a (to him) meaningless piece of paper like a child at show & tell. His failures will result in increased infections and deaths.

You know you’re in trouble when this person is supposedly in charge during a crisis.
