Trump, in announcing “Operation Warp Speed”; “Its objective is to finish developing and then manufacture and distribute a proven corona virus vaccine as fast as possible. Again, we’d love to see if we can do it prior to the end of the year.”
Once again, these are the words of a coward who, in order to win an election, will continue to lie. Will continue to think that people, other than the ones in his cultist base, are as stupid as he is. Most scientists agree that a vaccine for Covid-19 will take anywhere between a year and a year and a half. And on Thursday Rick Bright, the ousted head of a government agency seeking a vaccine, told Congress: “Normally, it takes up to 10 years to make a vaccine. A lot of optimism is swirling around a 12-to-18-month time frame, if everything goes perfectly. We’ve never seen everything go perfectly.”
This conman, if left to his own devices – and sadly, this seems to be what’s happening here considering all the “good Germans” backing this crooks’ play; Barr, McConnell and the Republican Senate, and The Supreme Court – this uncaring criminal would certainly release a vaccine into the public before it was fully tested, and if a few people died from it – or a few hundred, or a few thousand died from it, hey – no biggie. And, “Believe me, I had no idea they were going to release this thing.”
I just finished watching President Barack Obama speak to the country’s graduating high school class. This honorable man burnishes the title of President. This man is the epitome of a statesman. Obama is a true nobleman. A man. A mensch. This man is the polar opposite of a Donald Trump. In Trump we see a braggart. A liar, a coward, a weakling. A whiny two year old who is a slave to his pathological narcissism. His unhealthy need for praise – even if it comes from sniveling bootlickers – and sicker need to lower everyone else in order to make himself feel superior. A truly inferior man. The “unmensch.”
That this Trump, this oafish, cruel, empty excuse for a human, is now in the position he currently holds is a testament to the undercurrent of racist ignorance and misplaced grievance that courses through the bloodstream of this country. An ignorance that will take all of us under with it unless we rid ourselves of this Trump cancer along with all the unqualified toadies he has installed in order to implement his feverish desire to “get even.” A desire that has festered in him since he was young and unaccepted by anyone who knew him in Manhattan – anyone who had any sense of decency.
And, to top it all off, Donald Trump is that most ugliest of humans; a person lacking even a modicum of grace, or humility, or wit.
