Our president has shown how he thinks with his daily coronavirus briefings, and it is not pretty. He said the virus is smart because it can’t be destroyed by antibiotics. We all know antibiotics do nothing against any virus.
He suggests we should try putting cleaning products in our body. He offers his ignorant hunches as alternatives to the facts his medical experts present. He lies about the terrific job we are doing with testing when that is obviously false.
The U.S. leads the world in sick and dying people from this pandemic. Back in February when we needed a leader to prepare for the pandemic, he played golf.
His legacy will be that he encouraged racism, greatly harmed the environment, ignored climate change, ignored the gun problem and implemented tax cuts for the wealthy that have sent the national debt higher than the GDP. He meddles dangerously with the military, bullies Congress and the judicial branches, and puts incompetent people in powerful positions as long as they are loyal. He hides his taxes because he owes millions to the Bank of China and who knows what else.
I am proud of America but this guy has brought shame to the office of president. I am embarrassed by his policies, his morals, and his ignorance.
