President Donald Trump spends time playing bad golf, tweeting many election fraud lies and obstructing President-elect Joe Biden, at a time when a quarter of a million Americans have already died from COVID-19, more than 11 million have been infected, new cases are surging across the country, and hospitals are being overwhelmed.
Infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci, members of the Biden-Harris COVID-19 Advisory Board and top officials from organizations representing Americans hospitals, doctors and nurses are calling on President Donald Trump to share critical COVID-19 data with the Biden’s transition team as soon as possible to save American lives, but the President isn’t moved.
Even a letter released on Tuesday by the CEOs of the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association urging the Trump administration to work closely with the Biden transition team on COVID-19 did not move the President also.
Mr. Trump is still whining over an election he clearly lost to Joe Biden two weeks ago, so he’s spreading false hope to his followers, raising money from them and telling them he is close to victory, or that he has already won the election.
In court, his cases are being thrown out as the judges are unable to see clear evidence there was the type of wide spread fraud Mr. Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani are claiming on Twitter and cable networks.
As more cases are dismissed in court, and seconds turn into minutes, minutes into hours, hours into days and days into weeks, Mr. Trump sees his presidency gradually but certainly come into an end.
So he tweets more, makes more baseless fraud allegations, fires those who contradict his false allegations, claims Biden won only because the election was rigged, corrects himself quickly, says Biden won only in the media, and finally that he, Trump, won the real election.
Mr. Trump, who loved to talk to the ‘fake news’ media during his four years in office, has been missing in action for almost two weeks, he’s spoken in public only once, he’s taken no questions.
His silence is his concession, his tweets are his consolation, but time is his enemy.
As Mr. Trump whines over his election loss, releases more tweets, and tries to discredit the process, COVID-19 is accelerating dangerously, hospitals are being overwhelmed and Americans are dying while Republicans stand by a man who is letting Americans die.
