The guy was yelling “I can’t see, I can’t see!” A woman ran up to him and said: “open your eyes!” He did and exclaimed: “I can see!” I think of him every time I read about some of the Trump folk. I just want to run over to them and say “open your eyes.” Then I look at them and their eyes are wide open. What to do?
How do people with open eyes not see the evil in Trump?
I had someone who is a big, big Trump supporter comment to me a few days ago that he disliked “women abusing, . . . Joe Biden.” Isn’t that a little nutty for a Trump supporter to dislike Biden for abusing women (there’s one rebutted allegation by a woman of a scene that could only have happened in the mind of a Trump supporter or member of QAnon) but love Trump (who has a dozen or more suits against him for abusing women, raping women, and who admits he likes to grab women, and is a notorious philanderer)? You see what I mean about nuttiness.
I have written about the Trump BIG LIES about Covid-19 on the prior two days. These lies are endangering and causing countless numbers of people to risk infection with the virus. Many of them will be infected because there is strong indication that his hate fests have brought about an increase in Covid cases in the neighborhoods where he has held them shortly after he leaves. But he still holds them without a thought for the danger he is exposing his Trumpettes to. Wouldn’t you think that a responsible person, never mind the leader of a country, would err on the side of protecting his folk? Even if their nuttiness is shown by their willingness to attend his gatherings without face masks and social distancing.
Assuming he does not believe the virus spreads by air when one is in close contact with another which Xi told him in January; assuming he does not believe that his good friend Herman Cain caught Covid attending his hate fest and died; assuming he does not believe masks and social distancing are necessary as the CDC and most other scientist suggest, even in the oft chance they are correct shouldn’t he stop having his gatherings where people do not don masks and crowd in close together.
I suppose since we know he is totally irresponsible then perhaps we should turn to his followers and wonder why they in light of the dire news about Covid and the trail of death following Donnie Covid Seed they do not protect themselves. The only thing that can account for that is that they are nutty.
As I said I talked about two BIG LIES being spread by Trump. There is a third one. It is the true reason why Trump does not ask his followers to take the minimum cautionary steps. It is the reason his new best friend doctor Charles Atlas tweeted that masks do not work. As the old saw goes: “your actions thunder so loud I cannot hear what you are saying.” Trump has bought into the idea of Herd Immunity. He will not admit it and will tell the BIG LIE if confronted with it but Trump’s goal is to have as many Americans as possible contract Covid-19 with the expectation that at some point so many will have had it, and the weak will have died, that those who remain will be immune to it.
It is so obvious what he is doing that even his followers must know it. It is obvious for month after month he had done nothing of substance to stop it other than protest that people are talking about it too much as if it will go away if it is not reported. That his people know he wants to let thousands upon thousands of Americans die so that he can reach some magical point where Covid disappears and they can still support him and take enormous risks to their lives by disregarding all caution points out how nutty his followers are.
