General George Patton led the charge against Hitler’s army. He was at the front, which made his people crazy, not at the back watching it on YouTube. Donald Trump gets to play a general in his war against the “invisible enemy,” COVID-19. Too bad, he has no idea how to be a real leader, because this is what is happening.
Senators, Americans, Representatives, the medical field, business owners, the Department of Defense (DOD), governors, mayors, and others have been crying out for leadership. They need for Trump to give them the go-ahead to start manufacturing the medical equipment and supplies, which are direly needed. Senator Joe Mansion (D-WV) said Thursday he had a distillery he could convert to manufacturing hand sanitizer. Mr. President? Are you there?
Nurse, respiratory therapists, and others in our hospitals and nursing homes, our heroes, are down to their last masks, their last gowns. Some of them are improvising using office supplies and even masking tape. That just wrong. America could easily gear up to manufacture these products, if Trump said: “go!” He has not.
Corporations are capable of manufacturing the vital test equipment, but only if the president gives them the go-ahead. The World Health Organization (WHO) offered this, but Trump turned the offer down.
There are 100 testing machines sitting fallow and ready to roll, but for the federal red tape. The DOD is a magnificent, efficient, well-trained tool made up of two million heroes. Still, they need the orders to move out from the commander-in-chief — nada.
Trump has known for months that there was a tsunami of coronavirus headed our way. Yet, he sat on his hands, calling the virus a hoax. Many of his followers believed him and still do. He is playing with their lives.
Maybe, the president is making plans for his military parade. Thursday morning, he said:
‘We are going to WIN, sooner rather than later!’
Twitter world went nuts when the “war president” told people they were going to win. You will not want to miss these responses below:
