Mr. Trump, why didn’t you call off the mob sooner?

  • Well, it just slipped my mind….. just kidding! actually,
  • I think my phone ran out of charge, or
  • I was reading “War and Peace” on the crapper, but maybe
  • I binge-watched “Emily in Paris,” my favorite, then again,
  • I got my favorite tie stuck in the shredder, but now I remember
  • I was giving the new intern Roxanne a “guided tour“ of the Whitehouse like you’ve never seen before, also
  • I always get drowsy after an attack.

Coronavirus Pandemic

many of these people got infected

Trump was attacking the fire department (epidemiologists and public health) while the house was on fire (pandemic).

Donald Trump has totally mismanaged the response to the Coronavirus Pandemic by

  • threatening to block a pandemic crisis relief package at the last minute
  • trying to downplay the Pandemic to a campaign punchline
    • “Turn on television: COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID COVID, COVID. A plane goes down, 500 people dead, they don’t talk about it. COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID.”
  • blocking CDC contact tracing of White House staff infection breakout
  • single-handedly put his entire White House staff at risk by his maniacal anti-mask policy.
  • reducing testing to make the numbers look better before the election
  • claiming
    • “children are virtually immune from COVID-19,” and
    • the coronavirus will “go away soon”
  • suggesting people could injest bleach to kill the virus
  • pushing the restart of America in a dangerous “banzai-style” charge
  • pushing hydroxychloroquine which raises death risk in Covid patients
  • announcing we’re “going to kill ourselves” if the economy doesn’t improve soon
  • repeatedly ignoring the intelligence briefings he was receiving daily
  • firing the experts and experienced U.S. global pandemic response team over two years ago
  • denying the coronavirus threat early on, calling it “a hoax,” and
  • firing the Inspector Generals when accountability reports were showing poor performance for
    • recognition and swift response of the threat, and
    • fair, equitable and swift distribution of emergency funds.


Rule of Law, Norms, and Truth

Donald Trump is like a mob boss, because it takes a long time and a lot of effort and persistence to bring a criminal of that caliber to justice.
