Trump has a very low level of intelligence. The men and women he selected for positions in his administration are of equally low intellect. They apparently believe that the American people are as ignorant as Trump’s cult.
The facts about the coronavirus from its beginning to today are undeniable. The Center for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization carefully diagramed the pandemic from its origin. However, the Trump administration continues its futile efforts to hide the truth about Trump’s great failure to address a major crisis in our nation. This one act proves that he is not a leader and therefore unfit to claim the title of President of the United States. Thousands of deaths are directly attributable to Trump’s failure to take action in January of 2020.
Several red states refused to take measures which would have saved the lives of their citizens. In Texas, Governor, and Trump puppet, Greg Abbott refused to follow the suggestions of healthcare and science experts. He refused to comply with the suggestions of Dr. Anthony Fauci and obeyed the orders of the least educated man to ever live in our White House. On Saturday, the state reported 1,801 new cases of Covid-19, the largest number since the pandemic was confirmed.
The Texas Department of State Health Services said 734 of the new cases are from Potter and Randall counties.
“These counties’ new cases are largely from targeted testing of employees at meat plants in the area. More test results from plants are expected,” it tweeted.
Trump’s administration is the least qualified in my lifetime. Our nation has more deaths and five-times more infections than any other nation in the world related to this pandemic. In a pitiful effort to cover-up Trump’s enormous failure, Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, created a fantasy to explain this sad but true fact.
“Unfortunately, the American population is a very diverse … It is a population with significant unhealthy comorbidities that do make many individuals in our communities, in particular African American, minority communities particularly at risk here because of significant underlying disease health disparities and disease comorbidities — and that is an unfortunate legacy in our health care system that we certainly do need to address,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
When Tapper pushed back, asking Azar if he was implying the reason so many Americans had died from Covid-19 was because they were “unhealthier than the rest of the world,” Azar said no, that wasn’t what he meant. What did he mean? He, himself has no idea.
Either our nation has the worst or the best healthcare system in the world. There are no gray areas here which would allow Azar to defend the failed Trump administration.
Trump continues attempts to repeal Obamacare without replacing health care for more than 24 million Americans.
This pandemic has revealed the incompetence of the Trump administration for once and for all. This group of woefully unqualified and inexperienced men and women will continue to fail our nation.
Time for real change.
