At this point, most of the country is waiting with clenched teeth and tired hearts for Donald Trump to leave the White House and disappear into the annals of an embarrassing history. For now, he’s still tweeting nonsense and lies, determined to “prove” that his successor is somehow scandal-ridden and that Trump himself is “perfect.”
To be clear, the response to H1N1 was not a “disaster.” The CDC calls the response to H1N1 by the American government under Obama a “a complex, multi-faceted and long-term response to the pandemic.” Tragically, 12,000 Americans died of H1N1. Today, nearly 300,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 under Donald Trump’s watch, more than in any war or tragic event in history. “Disaster” is an understatement.
No one knows what “I just want to stop the world from killing itself” means, especially while Trump continues to deny the severity of COVID-19 and holds super spreader rallies that continue the massive spread of the virus.
Just like President Obama, Joe Biden is not plagued with scandals other than the ones Trump made up and fed to his hapless supporters. His actions in Ukraine were not only legal and ethical, they were backed by Congress, including by some Republicans in Congress, and supported by our European allies, the IMF, and the World Bank. Everyone knew what happened there and no one mentioned it in connection to a scandal until Trump faced impeachment. The one-term, impeached president who lost the popular vote twice was embroiled in scandal. Biden is not.
Twitter was confused by Trump’s crazed rambling. Read some of their comments below:
