Trump, Xi, CCP, GOP is the title of a series of posts I ran about a year ago, pointing out some of the ways that Trump and Xi are alike, and CCP and GOP are alike.
We know that Mr. Xi and CCP wasted about six weeks at the early stages of the crisis. This no doubt cost lives in China, as people died at home without being tested.
We know that Trump has wasted more than six weeks, since he knew about the virus from early in January when China informed WHO. This waste of time has cost lives in the US, and is going to cost a lot more, as doctors and nurses work without a "safety net," preventive measures are ignored by Trump, people die from overdose on hydroxychloroquine and GOP derides the pleadings of the scientists and doctors. The bungling will force the use of the "death panels" hypothesized by the GOP in Obamacare debates. In overwhelmed hospitals, doctors will be forced to triage virus patients. Public health and safety cost money, and Republicans say we can't afford it.
So let’s help in the election. Let’s remind all Americans in our high-tech information age that the GOP has developed a killer app for the American people. Call it Trump. By June or July, Americans will have realized how true that is.
