Ideally In the age of the coronavirus all politicians put aside their differences and work in concert to defeat the virus that attacks all of us indiscriminately. We have seen the Democratic governors of New York and California step up to the plate and work in close coordination with President Donald Trump.
Utah Senator Mitt Romney announced on Sunday that he would self-quarantine after fellow Senator Rand Paul announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. There is no love lost between Romney and Trump, the Utah senator was the only Senate Republican to break from the party and vote to convict Trump on abuse of power after the Senate impeachment trial.
How did Trump react to Romney’s self-quarantine? Did he disregard their long history of mutual enmity in order to present a united front to the country? Did he express any sympathy or concern? Are you freaking kidding me, we’re talking about the stable genius!
Trump couldn’t conceal his glee when a reporter informed him that Romney was in isolation at a coronavirus news conference. “Gee. That’s too bad”, replied the sorry excuse for the comforter-in-chief. The reporter asked Trump if he could “detect sarcasm” in his voice. “No,” the pathological liar answered. “None whatsoever.”
Romney is 73, and his wife, 70, has MS, and needless to say, they are especially vulnerable to the virus, and they need our sympathy and concern, and could do without sarcasm and hatred.
