I have zero sympathy for Trump and the Republicans who enabled him.
Remember, he knew back in February that the Coronavirus was far more deadly than the flu, and that it was transmitted through air - and his excuse he didn't want to panic the country is an outright lie - he didn't want to panic the stock market, He refused to take a leadership role, use the defense production act to produce PPEs, call for a crash program to develop better tests. He did use the DPA to force workers back into the meat packing plants and let the owners off the hook for their negligence in providing safety measures. He mocked masks, and encouraged his followers to flaunt their resistance to wearing masks and social distancing. His appointees have destroyed the credibility of the CDC and FDA, and will make acceptance of a vaccine far more difficult to obtain.
Probably a 100K people died who didn't need to because of his lies, unwillingness to lead, and failure to take any real measures to mitigate the virus - his China travel ban was a joke, thousands returned without any provision to test and isolate them, and ironies of irony, while he was blocking China, the virus did an end run out of Europe.
Now if someone would please breath on Moscow Mitch.
