    You're the one crying about not being led. Not me. Obviously I'm onto something since you immediately launched into a personal attack. That's the first sign that a Liberal knows his argument has gone to ****.

    I understand that's what you'd want ... but do you think you should expect something of Trump you'd never expect of yourself or others?

    Trump knows how to be a boss. He doesn't know how to lead.
    There is a lot of childishness going around across the board eg whether Trump is a racist because he calls it the Chinese virus. Or the standard critics of Mr. Trump who say that he should have basically shut the country down in January (during the middle of an impeachment inquiry and trial - as if that would have been uncontroversial).

    BUT-- Trump has pointed out, correctly, that the country is a federal republic and that the role of the feds is to support the states in their efforts to deal with the problem. There can certainly be grounds for criticism in how Trump has dealt with it (I don't see the point in the states and feds getting into a bidding war over medical supplies).
    But some of the stuff is wrong and quite worthy of pushback by Mr. Trump (Mr. Biden having called the closing of travelling from China Xenophobic, or Mr. Cuomo declining to purchase additional ventilators when he had the opportunity).

    By which you mean childish rants against them for complaining about the federal response. You did make the point. Trump is incapable of accepting even the slightest criticism. He's even incapable of being called less than the very best. He has the emotional maturity of an infant.

    Its not childishness to point out that Gov Cuomo declined to purchase ventilators when he had the opportunity or that NYC hospitals had been shutdown.
    Its called that Gov Cuomo ought be held politically accountable for his actions.

    The true source of the problem is that over the past few decades, the USA in a bipartisan fashion have offshored American industry to China.
    Including the production of medical supplies.
    One of the more ironical situation here is that Mr. Trump has long been a critic of the policies that have led to this state of affairs.

    What have you done to contribute to the country diring this crisis? Besides bitch about Trump and no, that isn't a contribution.
    Again, the country needs a leader.

    And what have YOU done to contribute to the country during this crisis? Two can play that game.

    You don't know what anyone is real life is doing to help in this crisis so why not do yourself a favor and practice the "silence is golden" rule.

    Yes, he should ignore it, like any rational adult would do. Only a child hasn't learned to let things roll off his back.

    If I complained every time someone at work blamed me, or dissed me or laughed at me, I'd never get anything done, so you're incorrect in assuming what I would expect of myself. And I expect the POTUS to be more adept at this than I am.

    Its interesting that you are unwilling to extend the same courtesy of understanding to Trump as you do to Cuomo. Isnt Trump under enormous pressure too?
