This weekend, the news media has decided to go crazy because Donald Trump’s tempting fate with the Coronavirus finally caught up to him and was is now positive for the virus. It was always just a matter of time until he became sick, so this shouldn’t have been that unexpected at all. He rarely wears a mask, either in or out of the White House and, while his rallies are somewhat socially distant for him, his rallies have largely been virus farms for everyone else, so it was just a matter of time before the virus was passed around enough to infect him and/or his family, most of whom spend a lot of time in the White House, for better or worse.
However, the press seems t have largely been blindsided by the news of Trump’s illness and they are trying with all their might to turn this into an epic news story of major import to the country. That means a lot of questions about what voters are thinking and how many of them may find sympathy with the worst “president” in history and decide to vote for him, even if they hadn’t planned to before.
This is unacceptable. Not only is blind speculation not an acceptable part of any journalistic enterprise, but this election is too important to screw with it in any way. This is our opportunity. We can not only get rid of Donald Trump, but we can relegate the current version of the Republican Party to the cash heap pf history, once and for all. There is no reason to not vote this year, regardless of viruses and pandemics and the lies Republicans have told us, and there is no reason why anyone with a functioning cerebellum should vote for Trump or any other Republican this year. It doesn’t matter whether you think Joe Biden is the best Democrat to become president; he’s the only one available.
One month from today os our time. It is a time for progressives and liberals to swallow our pride and do our patriotic duty and serve this country, by using Trump and every other Republican on the ballot. If everyone votes, we can change everything with this election, especially if we manage to do so again in 2022 and 2024 and beyond.
Let’s do this!!
