White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows: ‘We Are Not Going to Control the Pandemic’

Health experts have been warning since the start of the coronavirus pandemic that cases would surge in the fall and winter and true to predictions the United States has hit the highest 7-day average of cases since the pandemic began.

This is bad news for Donald Trump who has been downplaying the virus for months, and who in the closing days of the campaign has been falsely reassuring his crowds that we are rounding the corner.

Trump’s campaign strategy has been to ignore the pandemic and to try to make the genial and trustworthy Joe Biden the focus by depicting him as a corrupt and demented lifelong politician.

The electorate, with the exception of Trump’s cultlike followers, isn’t buying his ridiculous assertion that Biden is a corrupt politician and the reality of 222,000 deaths blows away the lie that we are rounding the corner.

The comments by White House chief of staff Mark Meadows that the US can’t control the fast-worsening pandemic is overshadowing Trump’s desperate last-ditch bid to save his reelection bid.

The trajectory of the presidential campaign and the pandemic isn’t changing, and Biden will win in a landslide, and we won’t round the corner on the pandemic until Biden is in office.

John Legend: ‘Trump is the Exact Opposite of What We Need Right Now’ Amen!

In an interview with GQ Hype John Legend said that “Donald Trump is the exact opposite of what we need right now.”

Amen, John Legend, Amen!

Under the best circumstances we don’t need Trump screwing things up and during a global pandemic he is the exact opposite of what we need.

During a health crisis that has devastated our economy and taken the lives of tens of thousands of Americans we need the president to act as the comforter-in-chief. Unfortunately, Trump is a sociopath incapable of empathizing with the suffering and pain of others. In his public statements Trump has made the coronavirus pandemic all about himself, he complains that he hasn’t received enough gratitude from the governors for the help that the federal government has rendered and he berates the press for not praising his management of the crisis.

During an existential crisis we need a leader who is calm and sober-minded, what we have in Trump is a narcissist who is unable to contain his rage against his critics, the media and scientists and physicians who won’t back up his foolish and dangerous contention that America is ready to open the economy and that the virus has been contained.

At this critical juncture in our history we need a statesman who is if not eloquent, then at least a good communicator. Trump is functionally-illiterate, and the last thing we need are his belligerent rants and incoherent stream-of-consciousness musings.

During a pandemic we need a manager who knows how to delegate authority and who will defer to the advice and counsel of physicians and scientists. Not a jackass who plays a doctor on TV and peddles fake cures and suggests that injecting coronavirus patients with disinfectants will cure them.

No shit, Donald Trump is the exact opposite of what we need right now. This virus will be with us for months if not years, just remember that when you vote this November.

Trump’s Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic is Criminally Negligent

Donald Trump is the most incompetent, ineffectual and clueless president in history and it comes as not surprise that he has botched his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The stable genius default mode is to ignore an unpleasant reality, and at first, he ignored the coronavirus outbreak. After hundreds of thousands of people had returned from Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began Trump imposed limited travel restrictions on China.

After weeks of twiddling his thumbs on Twitter Trump finally appointed a coronavirus czar, the utterly unqualified Mike Pence, the same moron who botched the response to an HIV outbreak in Indiana when he was governor.

Trump believes he is an expert on every subject under the sun, he knows more about modern warfare than his generals and he knows more about addressing a pandemic than physicians and he’s not shy about sharing his knowledge on the subject. So, he spouts lies and nonsense such as coronavirus is no big deal, everyone who wants a test can get one and the virus has been contained.

Trump isn’t taking any special precautions himself and he continues to hold MAGA rallies, even though he is the poster boy, or should I say “poster old man” for the person must likely to succumb to the virus.

Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been pathetic and his foolish rhetoric is likely to cause his supporters not to take any precautions and that’s going to get a lot of people killed.
