On this day of remembering all those who gave their lives for us in war, we remember why they did. They fought to protect this great experiment: the United States of America. There is another war going on right now, where the enemy is invisible and the so-called leader is golfing.
Today, all those who died protecting Americans from the coronavirus should also be remembered as heroes in this pandemic. Right now 98,035 people have lost their lives in their battle against COVID-19. Did Donald Trump even mention them or any of the dead heroes?
No. Instead, he gushed his “love” for North Carolina and attacked the governor for being in a “shutdown mood” with the Republican National Convention (RNC). Mood? He went on:
‘I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed…’
‘…made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. They must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied. If not, we will be reluctantly forced..’
‘…to find, with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!’
The president continued with three words that sounded as if he was heading out to a picnic:
‘HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!’
‘TRANSITION TO GREATNESS! Get ready, it is already happening again!’
‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’
