I was struck by the headlines in an article in the New York Daily News: “Stormy Daniels and Melania Trump accuse each other of being a hooker.”
America is this what it means to be great?
Did you see Trump’s triumphant return from the Walter Reed Hospital? Did you see his standing on the balcony at the White House just standing there looking out at nothing in particular and then taking off his mask that was preventing others from being infected by the coronavirus? What did it remind you off? To me it is something that Mussolini would do. Has there ever been a more idiotic act since Mussolini would stand in his palace window flexing his muscles?
Is this what it means to be great having a leader act like Mussolini?
Have you been following the spread of the coronavirus throughout the White House which has become ground zero for the most infections in the country? Could you ever imagine that the White House in the United States would become the locus for so many avoidable cases of coronavirus? I always thought that is something we would see in a very backward country but in America? Not only do we far outpace the world in deaths from the virus we are the only country whose head of state and those around him including the highest members in the Pentagon are infected with the virus or are isolating because they have been exposed to people who have been infected.
Is this making America great again?
I know according to Trumpeteers there could have been 2 million deaths if he was more inept but there is nothing to base that on. No other country has anywhere near that type of figures. And, you know if we had 2 million deaths these same people would be saying it could have been 10 million deaths.
We’re told Trump acted promptly and to show that fingers are pointed at other people. When that happens I scratch my head and say are those other people the person in charge. It is not whether Trump acted fast or slow that is the issue; it is simply that he did not act at all in an effective manner. Now he is telling us that the virus is not that bad – again we are back to the flu comparison – while over 210,000 lives have been lost to it. How bad does our country have to get before people recognize Trump cannot lead.
What about his most recent act when using a tweet he called off the negotiations on a relief bill for those adversely affected by the virus at a little after 3:00 p.m. causing the stock market to tank. Then realizing what he did – as I said the man is out of control – he then tweets out that he is not calling the negotiations off at all and is willing to sign some bills that had the relief included in them.
Is this how we lead America to be great again by saying one thing at three o’clock and the opposite at six o’clock? Is this the wisdom and discretion you want from someone who is supposedly responsible for the country?
Kellyanne Conway early in the administration told us about “alternative facts” suggesting what you see is not necessarily what you are seeing. We have now come to the point in America where we have “alternative vocabulary.” What a word means does not eliminate the idea that it means the opposite.
You had one idea in your mind what the word “great” meant. It does not really mean that. Making America great again does not mean it will be made into something better or something we can be proud of, it simply means that it will hit its all time nadir as we now see where Trump’s wife is fighting with another woman over who is the hooker and Trump acting like Mussolini spreading coronavirus among the people.
