Events have so overtaken President Trump that his inability to deal with them is without question the most damning moment in Presidential history. His delusion, grievances, vanity and ineptitude are on daily display in Homeric proportions.
Make America Sick Again should be his campaign slogan. His disturbing reaction to his failures is to boast about his performance, as he presides over the worst national response to the pandemic in the World. A deeply ignorant man, he has no plan other than to ignore the pandemic and those who have died due to it. When uniting the country is critically needed he has opted for dividing it, mixing his gumbo of falsehood, insult and appeal to the worst instincts of those sad souls who support him.
In the end the great threat to the US has not come from the mad mullahs of Iran, the kleptocratic authoritarian Putin, the devious Chinese Communists or the rougue North Koreans. It has come from within, from the television reality star who too many still refuse to acknowledge the damage he has done. He has delivered for the nation what he delivered for his Casinos – Bright Lights and Bankruptcy. The attempted diversions are not sustainable in the glaring light of his terrible performance. The Easter Miracle he promised has not occurred. The nation has not risen, the Stone that has been rolled away does not reveal an empty tomb and it is clear to any thinking or honest person that he is not the savior. The only hope for a cure for the nation’s ills is not a vaccine, but an election.
