He was unpresidential. No shock there; he has been for years.
He embarrassed the nation. Again…since the day he announced his candidacy.
I started to type that Trump admits he takes no responsibility, but the reality goes beyond that. He does not just admit that. He leads with the boast that he takes no responsibility. He is proud of himself. Failing, but putting the blame on someone he dislikes, is a bigger thrill for him than succeeding.
He does not read. Why would he when he can watch TV?
He does not listen to advisors, even experts, as HE knows more than anyone (at least in his own mind).
Remember when he claimed to know more about military strategy than the generals? This is the dumbest man I have ever seen in a position of power, yet he truly believes he is the smartest.
He knows more about war than generals.
He knows more about business than Jeff Bezos.
he knows more about pandemics than the nation’s leading scientists and epidemiologists.
He does not need a stocked cabinet, or a functioning State Department, or an intelligence community. He is smarter than all of them anyway, right?
This was no ‘gotcha’ moment, but you know what? Even if it were, so what?
People are dying because of his incompetence.
Our economy is being damaged in ways it may take a decade to recover from, like the Depression, because of his incompetence.
Our nation is supposed to be the leader of the world, the most prepared, the one to bail out the other countries when disaster hits. But sadly, we have a buffoon in charge. So, we will suffer, damn how we will suffer.
New York State already has more cases than South Korea, and New York City is on the verge of a disaster that will be so catastrophic it will be like 9/11 happened in Wuhan at the same time as the virus.
The Governor of New York is doing all he can every day to keep his citizens alive. Not safe. The time for safe has long passed. He is trying to keep his citizens alive. Rather than help, Trump tweets about him constantly, airing and re-airing every petty grievance.
Many have likened Trump to Nero, fiddling while Rome burned. I know they mean it metaphorically, as Trump would be too busy blaming the fireman to pick up a bow. But don’t worry, when it is all done, he will sit among the ashes and brag about how he is a better fiddler than Charlie Daniels and Yo-Yo Ma combined.
And yes, he will absolutely point out that Charlie Daniels is a great and patriotic American while Yo-Yo Ma (even if born in France) is Chinese and thus at least partially to blame for bringing coronavirus to the United States.
