Imagine Wyoming dropping right through the map of these United States. What if Milwaukee, Wisconsin disappeared as if a UFO descended and lifted it into the heavens? Suppose Bakersfield, California and Wichita, Kansas succeded from our great union? Or most of Seattle, Washington decided it would rather be part of Canada? That could not happen, or could it? What if we said the equivalent already has?
One in every 555 Americans died in the coronavirus pandemic for a grand total of 600,000, according to The World Population Review. It was not the fault of the Republicans nor the CDC. Neither the physicians nor the big pharmaceutical companies were to blame. Although all of the above have made their share of mistakes elsewhere, only one person was responsible for half a million of those deaths. And here is the case.
Donald Trump put his son-in-law in charge of the COVID-19, along with the VA, Mideast peace, and a rash of other monumental projects. This was Ivanka’s husband’s plan, The Daily Edge tweeted:
‘He literally caused a #BlueStateGenocide. They arrest people for wall scams, why not negligent homicide? #JaredIsEvil’
Trump was too late and too wrong when he banned flights from China. The strain that hit America came from Europe:
‘Banning flights from China failed because NOTHING was done to test and trace the disease even though hundred of thousands had arrived from China since the outbreak began. When it began arriving to NY from Italy in Feb, Trump knew it and didn’t test for it.’
New York is among the bluest states, but that does not mean Republicans avoided the city. Trump did not care:
‘If you’ve ever cared about New York or New Yorkers, call your member of Congress and ask them to send help. Main Switchboard: (202) 224-3121 nytimes.com/2020/03/24/opi ‘
Coronavirus Response Coordinator for the former president, Dr. Deborah Birx said that probably 100,000 of the deaths were casualties of the “original surge.” However, and this is where the chill sets into our bones, “All of the rest…could have been mitigated.” CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted:
‘There were about a hundred thousand deaths that came from that original surge. All of the rest of them, in my mind, could have been mitigated or decreased substantially.’
In a CNN Special, Dr. Birx told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta:
‘I look at it this way. The first time we have an excuse. There were about a hundred thousand deaths that came from that original surge. All of the rest of them, in my mind, could have been mitigated or decreased substantially.’
The list of Trump’s responsibilities goes on and on.
- The Trump White House screwed up the initial testing for the COVID-19 virus.
- Although the ex-president denied the reality of the pandemic, he told The New York Time’s Bob Woodward in early 2020 that the coronavirus was highly contagious.
- Worse, Trump called the virus a “hoax.”
- He held multiple packed rallies and fundraisers.
- Trump insulted people who got vaccinations, although, he had one himself when they first became available.
- He rather blatantly indicated that it was more macho to do without masks.
The Vanity Fair reported last July that Trump and Jared Kushner looked at those numbers and decided:
‘[B]ecause the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national (testing) plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically.
‘It soon became clear that ceding testing responsibility to the states was a recipe for disaster, not just in Democratic-governed areas but across the country.’
Twitter world went wild when they saw this. Take a look at what Americans had to say about Trump’s inaction below:
