“IN THE ABSENCE OF LEADERSHIP”

 

Some  pundit recently started a paragraph with that phrase.  I love it.   

Philip Rucker and Robert Costa write: “In the three weeks since declaring the novel coronavirus outbreak a national emergency, President Trump has delivered a dizzying array of rhetorical contortions, sowed confusion and repeatedly sought to cast blame on others…” (WaPo)   Well put.

Trump can fake it all he wants,  but the American people have caught up with him. He has barged into the daily corona briefings as if they were  his re-election  rallies,  which works fine for him. President Bonespurs wants to call him elf a “military President” but takes NO responsibility,  whining that “the  Governors” are in charge of the country now.  Thank God some of them are stepping up. He takes the center space but when anyone asks a question he doesn’t want to deal with, he calls over one of his lackeys,  OR he attacks the reporter who had the nerve to ask. It’s the Trump show all the way  BECAUSE THAT’S THE ONLY WAY HE KNOWS HOW TO GOVERN.  He only knows TV-  not  law, not logistics, not government- only TV.  How long will the networks give him a free two-hour show everyday?  How long will people go on watching it?  For the first couple of weeks I watched every minute.  Now I leave the sound off.  Friday was the bottom of the barrel-  his creepy son-in-law reading off THE NEWLY REWRITTEN WEBSITE  implying that the national stockpile of PPE is “OURS”  to be doled out to the President’s buddies as “WE” see fit.  This is a nightmare even worse that the virus.

Trump not only exhibits no leadership, he turns on his earliest supporters viciously, but you knew that. .  The WAPO summarizes  it HERE. 

Stay safe and try not to let every new offense get you down. His latest move is against mail voting Why would he want all those old, poor people to vote? Let’s not let him get away with it . Every night on Brian William’s show they announce tje number of days until the election. I think it’s about 200 right now. Keep your powder dry.
