    [W:386]The President Is Trapped

    The President Is Trapped

    Trump is utterly unsuited to deal with this crisis, either intellectually or temperamentally.



    3/25/20
    For his entire adult life, and for his entire presidency, Donald Trump has created his own alternate reality, complete with his own alternate set of facts. He has shown himself to be erratic, impulsive, narcissistic, vindictive, cruel, mendacious, and devoid of empathy. None of that is new. But we’re now entering the most dangerous phase of the Trump presidency. When things were going relatively well, the nation could more easily absorb the costs of Trump’s psychological and moral distortions and disfigurements. But those days are behind us. We are now in the early phase of a medical and economic tempest unmatched in most of our lifetimes. There are some 325 million people in America, and it’s hard to think of more than a handful who are more lacking in these qualities than Donald Trump. As one person who consults with the Trump White House on the coronavirus response put it to me, “He has chosen to imagine the worst is behind us when the worst is clearly ahead of us.” After listening to the president’s nearly-two-hour briefing on Monday—a former White House adviser who has worked on past pandemics told me, “This fool will bring the death of thousands needlessly. We have mobilized as a country to shut things down for a time, despite the difficulty. We can work our way back to a semblance of normality if we hold out and let the health system make it through the worst of it.” He added, “But now our own president is undoing all that work and preaching recklessness. Rather than lead us in taking on a difficult challenge, he is dragging us toward failure and suffering. Beyond belief.”
    We know two things for certain. The C-19 pandemic in the US will worsen, and Trump will do everything in his power to kneecap our way forward.

    Well, at least we know for certain, the above is what the anti-Trump grumps are hoping for.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” said the former vice president. “All men and women created by the you know, you know the thing.”

    Oh, add a third thing: We know that every day and in every way fault will be found with Trump and his handling of this crisis, fair or not.

    But I say keep scouring. Hearing and reading every single day how awful the current Admin is will surely enhance national morale, and that's what we all want, right? A super-positive outlook that increases confidence rather than fear and hopelessness, correct?

    Actually we know at least three things for certain - the third being Donald Trump is garbage that must be taken to the curb.

    Yeah, we picked the exact wrong time to elect this con man. He's not suited for the job to start with and especially not during a crisis like this.

    I heard today it's GM's fault. And maybe Ford. King Trump says so.

    "General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plant, and START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!! FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!!"

    I wish our forum members could use words as good as the president
