Donald Trump still won’t acknowledge how very dangerous the pandemic known as COVID-19 is, despite the nearly 200,000 deaths Americans have suffered. On Saturday, he bragged that his campaign will continue holding rallies that put everyone in danger but him while trashing his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, for showing actual leadership qualities and doing most of his campaigning from home.
Biden, for the most part, has used public appearances to speak, with a mask, to people on the ground. He’s spoken with peaceful protesters in the Black Lives Matter movement and families of 9/11 victims. Donald Trump has appeared at airports to tell crowds of unmasked followers that if Biden wins, the whole country will fall apart. One shows compassion, the other pure ego.
For Trump to continue to brag about his rallies after tapes of the president acknowledging all the dangers he told Americans didn’t exist is stunning. In any other administration, a president caught lying to Americans about a global pandemic that could kill them and their children, that president would resign. That president would be held accountable. For Trump, he’s already told the country that he takes “no responsibility at all” for the virus, despite his endless lies that kept his supporters believing that the virus and death toll were nothing more than a Democratic hoax. Who knows how many lives have already been risked at Trump gatherings and during the worst days of the pandemic because of Trump’s desire to win a second term?
Twitter wasn’t impressed with Trump’s rage tweets, either. Read some of their comments below:
