One Good Reason …

Well, folks, we have set records three days in the past week.  On Friday, October 23rd, we exceeded 85,500 new cases of the coronavirus.  Then on Thursday, October 29th, the U.S. saw 91,834 new cases, with 1,041 new deaths.  And yesterday, October 30th, we shattered the record yet again with 101,461 new cases and 988 deaths.  Think about that one … more than 100,000 new cases in a single day.  Around 1,000 deaths each and every day.

This is the pandemic that in every single rally he holds, Trump says is ‘going away’, or we have ‘rounded a corner’.  We’ve rounded a corner alright … we’ve rounded the corner into darkness, death and despair.  Meanwhile, Donald Trump says he is tired of hearing about it.

“The Fake News Media is riding COVID, COVID, COVID, all the way to the Election. Losers!” he tweeted.

“Covid, covid, covid, covid,” he said in Nebraska.

“Covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid,” he said in North Carolina.

“Covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid, covid!” he railed in Michigan

toon-covidThere are more reasons than I can cover in a single post as to why Donald Trump is unfit to be in the Oval Office, why he belongs in an orange jumpsuit in a prison cell rather than in the White House.  But, if there is one reason … one single main reason that people should by now have wakened and realized his ineptitude, it is his complete, unconscionable bungling of the pandemic from the moment it arrived on our shores until present.

It isn’t only that he lied to us time and time and time again, telling us that there were only 15 cases and that it was nothing to worry about, or that it would disappear with warm weather, or that it was no worse than the seasonal flu.  It isn’t only that he has mocked people for wearing a mask, it isn’t only that he holds rallies in crowded venues where social distancing is all but impossible.  It isn’t only that he stupidly taunts governors who are trying to keep the people of their state safe … even riling the masses in Michigan to the point that a well-planned kidnap/execution plot against Governor Gretchen Whitmer was in process until it was foiled by the FBI.  It isn’t even just that he has demanded that states re-open businesses far too soon, causing the number of cases in some states to spike during the summer.  No, my friends … the worst of it was summed up by Trump himself when he said, “It is what it is.”  Five little words, but those five little words tell us all we need to know about the character, or lack thereof, of Mr. Trump.

Donald Trump does not value the lives of the people of this country.  Donald Trump could not care less whether you or I die tomorrow or not.  Donald Trump is incapable of empathy, of compassion, and there is truly some part of his psyche that is lacking … ask his sister or his niece.

We the People of the United States … are paying a high price for a ‘president’ who not only takes a salary (yes, he does take his salary), but spends our money on personal entertainment such as near-daily golf games, trips to his Florida resort, entertainment at his many hotels and casinos, and much more.  Meanwhile, while he is swinging an iron golf club, we are working hard to pay our taxes so that he can live a life of luxury, and more importantly … WE. ARE. DYING.  And he does not care.  He cares about his fortunes, he cares about the power of his office that he has abused time and time again, and he cares about his re-election.  He does not care if you live or die, my friends.

If you haven’t already voted, please plan to do so and please, I beg of you, vote this bastard out of the White House, out of the Oval Office, out of our lives.  Thank you.

    • He isn’t trying to remind his followers, nor to urge caution — he is telling them he’s bored with it, that it is nothing to worry about, and that they should … party hearty (and vote for him, of course).

  1. I so wish your last remarks … starting with We the People … could be BROADCAST on every TV station in hopes that his supporters would STOP and THINK about this man.

    Yes, I know. It’s a futile wish because they would never hear the words since they would be too busy waving their confederate flags and shouting MAGA! MAGA as they adjusted their red ball cap on their pointed heads.

    • Many thanks, Nan … I, too, wish we could pound it into the heads of the masses, but … they do not listen … even when it’s their own lives on the chopping block, still they do not listen, do not believe the facts. Sigh.

  2. Thank you for sharing!… Donald Trump only thinks about Donald Trump, always has and always will!… the closed minded minions who support Trump has the same mindset, which is where Donald’s strength and power lies… they use Trump by knowing all they have to do is cater to his ego, his wishes to get what they want…. by voting Donald out of office, you will get rid of the “head of the snake” but you will still have the “body of the snake” to deal with… 🙂

    “It’s a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone…” James Clavell,

    Hope all is well in your part of the universe and life is all that you wish for it to be!… 🙂

    • Truer words were never spoken, my friend … we will still have the body of the snake and it is almost certain to regenerate another head. Sigh.

      The Clavell quote does seem to have some merit … I’ve found lately that people I thought I knew … are actually somebody else entirely.

      All is reasonably well here … hope the same is true for you!

  3. Jill, I agree. To Scottie’s point and what we have written about before, the president has long been known to skirt any rules that get in his way. He has been cheating to win this election for many months now and will do absolutely anything not to lose. His ego simply cannot handle losing, which is why he lashes out, lies and cheats. What makes me sad is there are Republicans who are very prepared to aid and abet his efforts to cheat and already have. They are too many to name.

    I have said all along. Can Trump win? – yes. Should Trump win? – no. He has done so much damage, but what I fear is what we do not know. Just this weekend, I learned he has overseen the quiet removal of 200,000 asylum seekers using bogus court dates, court locations that do not exist, court times that are stated as pm rather than am and so forth. These scared folks do not show up and the judges send them back. Or some show up without attorneys. Note asylum seekers have a tough hill to climb, but this is a rigged system.

    • I agree … far too many have been willing to lick his boots for … what? What are they getting in return? They are sacrificing their careers and reputations. But yes, there are far too many to name. I had not heard that about the asylum seekers … that is anti-humanitarian, but what else would we expect. I just don’t know how he’s flown that one under the radar! I’m incensed by him saying that doctors are letting patients die from the coronavirus to get more money! Sigh. I’m incensed by a lot these days, as it happens.

    • Now THAT’S a depressing thought, but I’m pretty sure we have other things to talk about, and I’m definitely NOT willing to keep Trumpie around just as a conversation piece! Perhaps, we will actually be able to go back to talking about some of the things we used to talk about … places and people to visit, feeding birds & squiggles, etc. OH, and there’s always BoJo, who has rather been left in the shadows of Trump. 😉

  4. Hello Jill. I do not want to add to your stress, and I agree getting the monster out of the office is very important, but I just read of boxes of mail in ballots sitting in boxes on the floor not delivered in a critical South Florida mainly Democratic area. With all the nefarious things that are going to happen the next two weeks I plan to double my blood pressure and stomach medications. Stay well. Hugs
