Donald Trump has canceled out whatever good he might have done while in office with his response to the coronavirus and his endorsement of vaccines. From Eric Peters art ericpetersautos.com:
That the Orange Man is dangerous – even more dangerous than his (s)elected successor – has just been established beyond doubt, provided one isn’t blinded by sick worshipful reverence for the spray-tanned man, whatever he does or doesn’t do.
He didn’t do anything to stop the spread of mass hysteria – the weaponization of hypochondria. Which is precisely the right word to describe the manufacturing of mass hysteria over a sickness with a 99.8-something percent recovery rate.
This was – is – a crime against the people of the United States.
That he “didn’t know” or “acted out of good intentions” or was “stymied” by the “swamp” is of a piece with if only Stalin knew! – a reference to Soviet-era dupes who regarded “Uncle Joe” as a benevolent patriarch who would never have allowed his underlings to ship people off to the camps.
If only Stalin knew!
Well, the Orange Man knew, too. Maybe not at first; maybe not last January-February-March or so. He is entitled to the benefit of the doubt for that.
But by July-August-September, the facts were known – to anyone who cared to exert even cursory effort to look into them, surely the duty of the president of the United States – who took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, which was shat all over as if by a flock of diarrhea-afflicted seagulls in the name of “stopping the spread” . . . of a virus so not-lethal its existence probably would never even have been noticed had it not been for the organized, deliberate fear-mongering which the Orange Man did nothing to counter.
