Make America Great Again: Trump Must Go! #189
EDITORIAL | 9/17/2020, midnight
Last week, much to the consternation of millions, Trump announced that “we’re rounding the corner. We’re rounding the corner on the virus.”
We are flummoxed on what street Trump is on, or for that matter what part of the country. His lethal disregard of the pandemic, a dreadful lack of seriousness continues with no signs of change, no signs of standing up to the gloom and doom.
If anything, the spikes of the virus are as widespread as they were when Trump began poo-pooing the dangers earlier this year.
Other than his own fiscal gains and concerns, Trump’s only interest since he was sworn into office is how to stay there. And as we learn each day he will do and resort to just about anything to retain his authority over the nation.
The most recent indication of his endangering lives occurred at an indoor rally in Nevada when he said, “I’m on a stage and it’s very far away,” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “and so I’m not at all concerned.”
His “not at all concerned” means he’s not concerned for all. Trump has maintained this disinterest in the health of the American people from the first announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the impact the virus could have, and the threat it posed for the lives of thousands.
He told Bob Woodward there was nothing he could do about it, and that’s been his stance to the moment.
Dropping the ball on the economy, on climate change, on rebuilding the infrastructure and other essentials is one thing, but failing to seriously consider the virus and how it could kill countless number of Americans is quite another.
It remains troubling to know that he impugned the war dead, characterizing them as “suckers” and “losers.”
The real suckers and losers are those who place their democratic rights, their votes, on a man who could care less about them.
Insulting the dead is not the same as maligning the living, and that’s what he continues to do without a second thought, without proposing an ounce of prevention.
Yes, we are about to go around a corner, a corner of foreclosure on nearly everything we cherish, everything we value and everything so dearly precious, even our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
The corner we need to get around is the imminent one of extinction Trump’s poses, and it could come sooner than our cry to Make America Great Again—Trump Must Go!
