If Trump would read the President’s Daily Brief, he would have been informed in early January that the threat of a pandemic was very real. Because he denied the facts and told the American people, “this will go away,” and waited over two months to do anything, the United States now has thousands more deaths than any other country. The war in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia lasted 20 years, from 1955 until 1975. The total loss of life was approximately 58,000 men and women. As of today, April 29, 2020, the number of American lives lost from effects of the coronavirus surpassed that number.
Trump, his party, and his Klan are in denial. Their attempt to misdirect the facts is unforgivable and so ridiculous it would be laughable if lives had not been sacrificed because of Trump’s failure to do anything.
Trump’s son-in-law, and thinner clone, Jared Kushner couldn’t wait to lie in defense of his Don.
According to his interview on Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning, he seems to feel he has much to brag about. Trump’s son-in-law said: “The federal government rose to the challenge, and this is a great success story.”
“We’re on the other side of the medical aspect of this,” Kushner said in the clip, which is now going viral on Twitter. “I think that we’ve achieved all the different milestones that are needed.” Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci wants every single American who wants a test to be able to have a test by June. Seems like a pretty important milestone, no?
Kushner stressed that the goal is to reopen the economy.
This is a family who denies science, and this is the primary reason thousands more lives have been lost than would have been if the American people had leadership in the White House. This administration is reactionary, and this ‘wait and see’ attitude results in disaster.
This is more proof that Trump’s supporters are members of a cult. They are not allowed to think for themselves and Trump’s lies take precedence over fact.
Dump Trump in 2020.
