“You can’t handle the truth!”
With his daily barrage of lies and distortions about the coronavirus pandemic, one might think that is just what Donald Trump would have us believe of the American public. That we can’t handle the truth
The truth is, it is Trump who can’t.
And it’s awful.
A common grifter in a place of power is a lethal combination.
The awful truth is that’s where we are folks. Because he comes by his lying honestly, he has no frame of reference for truth. He mangles the truth with the ease of a snake-oil salesman, and the black empty heart of a psychopath.
If Trump is, as he claims a wartime president then he is a war criminal with blood on his hands.
No. Mr. Trump did not create the virus. But his arrogance, pettiness, and propaganda along with gross mismanagement and manipulations will cause the death of hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens.
Trump is a disaster, as lethal as the virus and his dangerous lies spread as fast.
We crave leadership. We crave and need truth. They are as essential to our survival as a COVID 19 vaccine.
Plain and simple his handling of this crisis is plain awful.
That is the awful truth.
