These are treacherous times for three powerful reasons. One is that Donald Trump was going to let as many people as possible die of the coronavirus and will for the next 10 weeks. So far, 10.2 million Americans have contracted this vicious disease, men, women, and yes children. Every day 130,553 and counting come down with it. Now, the number escalates to 239,745 loved ones lying in their dark cold graves.
A second reason these are uneasy times is that Trump fired his Secretary of Defense Mark Esper by tweet. It was a revenge firing, that started way back with an interview where Esper was asked what kind of boss the president was. He replied good. POTUS hated that answer, only fawning would do. Esper was not a yes man. He refused to illegally bring in US troops to quell the protests along the west coast and in front of the White House. He said that if the next secretary is a yes man, “Then, God help us.”
The third reason is that Trump does not know how to lose, especially to a woman, and the list of reasons grows longer each day. So what can Americans do? For solace, go back and read about how our founding fathers managed in their upheaval. Do something unexpected for another American. Listen to a family member or friend with a different viewpoint, not to change it, but to connect.
Trump tweeted about the COVID-19 virus vaccine Tuesday morning:
‘“President Trump told us for some time we would be getting a Vaccine by the end of the year and people laughed at him, and here we are with Pfizer getting FDA approval by the end of this month. He was right.” @MariaBartiromo’
‘”Only because of President Trump, we are going to have a Vaccine by the end of the year.” Ronny Jackson, Texas Congressman-Elect’
‘WE ARE MAKING BIG PROGRESS. RESULTS START TO COME IN NEXT WEEK. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’
‘WE WILL WIN!’
