Americans have been dealing with the human side-effects of the coronavirus. That may look like sheltering at home or wearing protective masks. For many, it is trying to hang on to a loved one as they slip through our fingers and into the next realm. Even so, the people in this great country’s traditional fallback position has been to look forward, but how will that look?
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us out of our daily grinds and thrown us up against change. People rarely change unless it becomes too painful to not do so. This very unforgiving disease stole our lives as we knew them when it took away over 90,000 people and counting.
Already companies have been exploring more work-at-home options for their employees. As a result, the levels of smog have plummeted. Parents appreciate their children’s teachers and schools as they struggle to substitute teach at home.
After the people on the front, Americans have begun to realize how valuable are those in the support lines. Their worth should translate into more equitable earnings. This is just the beginning, yet we have a president insistent upon remaining in his cold past.
This president has spun and turned impulsively even as he announced “I am not acting impulsively!” He tweets began to flow:
‘…..mixed about even wanting us to get out. They make a fortune $$$ by having us stay, and except at the beginning, we never really fought to win. We are more of a police force than the mighty military that we are, especially now as rebuilt. No, I am not acting impulsively!’
The president has cast about for another distraction, one big enough to take the nation’s attention off of the coronavirus — but there was none, not even “Afghanistan:”
‘The Wall Street Journal Editorial states that it doesn’t want me to act in an “impulsive” manner in Afghanistan. Could somebody please explain to them that we have been there for 19 years, and while soldier counts are way down now, hardly impulsive. Besides, the Taliban is…..’
POTUS pulled out of the World Health Organization (WHO), yet he claimed to be with “India, Japan,” and others:
‘We are with them!’
Trump wanted none of the responsibility involved in dealing with coronavirus. In a fit of pique, he even fired the nation’s top vaccine expert:”
‘So the so-called HHS Whistleblower was against HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE. Then why did he make, and sign, an emergency use authorization? @NorahODonnell said, “He shared his concerns with a reporter.” In other words, he LEAKED. A dumb @60Minutes hit job on a grandstanding Never Trumper’
The president of these United States has called his political opponents fifth-grade slurs and scapegoated any entity that caught his attention. He has even blamed the Americans for coronavirus. They will remember:
‘Sleepy Joe is wrong again!’
Trump got excited about the old energy dollars when the voters have had the time to realize that there was something far more important than cold cash after their basic needs were met — one another:
‘OIL (ENERGY) IS BACK!!!!’
People have started turning off Trump and his little tantrums and marketing tactics:
‘LIVE. President @realDonaldTrump holds a roundtable https://t.co/d5Wbjle5BB — The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 18, 2020’
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 18, 2020
Yes, there has been a loser, a great loser. Trump just stepped into that role from this moment until his presidency formally begins shutting down after the November 2020 election:
