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
There 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.
