Trump has just spoken from the White House on a matter of grave importance – the looming coronavirus pandemic saying . . .
“Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low . . .” and that we will soon have a vaccination for it. Those are lies. The administration has done virtually nothing but gut the CDC and the NIH, the risk is very severe and there will not be any vaccinations for at least 18 months.
It would be good if we had a President that people could believe – especially when so many lives are at risk – but Trump has lied so many times on so many subjects that trusting his word has become foolish.
The cherry on top of this sundae of dishonesty and incompetence is that we now have Mike Pence in charge of coordinating the government’s response. Good grief. As a reminder, Mike Pence is a dummy – a science-denying religious zealot whose political rise was fueled by his role spewing nonsense on talk radio. Heaven help us.
