Usually when our doctors recommend to you advice to enhance your health and to provide longevity in life, if you have an ounce of brain left, you would take his advice, if not I would say you are stupid.
When you don’t take the advice of two renown doctors in the country who are constantly telling you to stay home to prevent the continued outbreak of the Coronavirus, and if you don’t it is a risk, and your president ignores their warnings, and encourages people to openly protest the current closing and safety standards to force openings of businesses, schools, all places of public gatherings.
What would you call this president, unless you are a Trump supporter without common sense or regard for the safety of others? Stupid is the first word that comes to my mind.
This president has no regard for human life, sacrificing his following to slaughter for his financial gain and ego. His attempt to encourage demonstrations shows his lack of respect and regard to safety for our first responders who risk their lives every day to guard our health and safety.
He doesn’t care about those who are in the medical field, police work, firefighters, etc who have lost their lives in saving others. Think of the nurses and doctors who can’t go home to their families, hug their loved ones because of the shortage of healthcare employees, and the high volume of patients who are overloading the hospitals.
Still he wants to encourage states to open for business as if nothing has happened, will continue: he and a handful of his southern governors are willing to follow his lead. Crazy people.
FACT: his daily fireside chat ratings have plummeted, because after he says a mouthful of lies, his two doctors say the opposite. You can see the frown of hate going though his head. My how they must have to bite their tongue as they attempt to soften what the president has misrepresented while VP Pence doesn’t bat an eye and the dark haired lady nods in agreement like a bobble head doll.
His ego is tarnished, he needs to get back out to his cult followers to hear the roar of the crown to his bashing of others, and to proclaim himself the King of Kings. Whether or not after his failure to lead this country through this epidemic although he thinks he has scored a “10” on his performance.
Because he failed to put all of his holdings in a Blind Trust like other presidents have, to which his followers proclaim his Constitutional Right, he knows what his stocks and business interests are doing daily like the rest of us. While the average John Doe may be losing hundreds maybe thousands a day, in the current stock market he is losing Millions, and his golf courses, country clubs, and hotels are losing millions weekly because of the shut downs.
The poor businessman that he is, I imagine his line of credit is maxed out, and he is in debt up to his butt. He is hurting financially about now as are the mom and pop businesses.
While his sympathy is aimed at the survival of the small business, industry and jobs for the working class, don’t be fooled it’s all about Trump and always has been and will continue.
He knows this is an election year, and people will vote their pocket book. Economist are all ready predicting a huge recession that will take years to recover, including the record unemployment rate, the falling stock market, all which leads to people losing their jobs, and businesses that operate on a slim margin will be closing.
Trump knows these practices will kill his chance for re-election.
I understand all of this. As a former small business owner, if operating today I would be out of business, closing my doors for good. I was a marginal operator, a shoe repairman, whose volume was declining because of foreign imports, and people changing from hard sole shoes to casual wear, tennis shoes, etc. And if I had to go without a paycheck for weeks, leading into months, I would probably panic.
I was truly a mom and pop business living month to month, hoping for a good Christmas season to net a small profit. I cringe thinking what businesses will face with the decision of reopening or not and why not follow the president and push for reopening of services regardless the risk of: restarting the epidemic and risk thousands of deaths. A toss up but I think I would rather risk my business versus lives.
Trump has no passion for others, just his own ego. Lives don’t matter, he has illustrated that many times. Money means everything to him as well as his family. Making money off the backs of others.
His election resulted on the backs of the working class, many Democrats, and he has screwed over all of you who think he cares for you. The reduction in Medicare services, reduction of the school lunch programs, the huge tax cut for the rich, the record deficit, (two trillion and rising from someone who promised to balance the budget), and yes although some of you argue socialism, those programs are still available should you ever need them, for now.
Never one to take blame, it’s everyone else fault, diversion for Trump is the name of the game, blame others to take the pressure for his failure to lead.
Now the blame game is on the governors. Of course he’s trying to blame Democrat Governors, but Republicans have rallied against the president blaming lack of government cooperation on the Trump admiration for not formulating a plan of action, and not being able to deliver much needed medical supplies.
Even to as much as bidding against states for supplies causing a shortage to states and bumping up the cost by the bidding.
Maryland Republican Governor, chair of the Governors group, certainly not an advocate of Trumps leadership in this area, by passed the problem by using the influence of his S. Korean wife, getting 500,000 test kits from S. Korea for his state. He stated, “We’ve been doing everything in our power” as his administration searched for weeks in the United States and abroad for more kits, which are in critically short supply.
Trump keeps telling people test kits are available to all Americans; they have tested 40 million people; How many millions of people are their in this country who haven’t been tested?
In Delaware Trumps re-election chairman Rob Arlett is leading his small band of Trump supporters to open Delaware. He proudly wears Trumps banner, not realizing if their was a snow balls chance in Hell of Trump carrying Delaware, people from upstate would be clamoring for that title. But with a 4-1 Democrat registration in NCCo, by far out numbering the Republican registration in Kent and Sussex, their are no takers.
Until the we should wait out this epidemic, not gamble whether or not opening up the country will not cause a further spread.
Latest news tonight: the coronavirus could repeat itself this winter causing more out breaks than the one we are now encountering.
And remember: you can’t fix stupid.
