Trump absent as vaccine distribution lags and thousands continue to die


(CNN) A closing indignity on the final day of this horrendous year is that nobody actually seems to expect Donald Trump, who is still the President, to be paying much or any attention to the actual nightmare underway in the country he still leads.

At 341,000 and growing, more people have died from Covid-19 in the US this year than died in battle in World War II and Vietnam combined, according to data on casualties in those wars from the Department of Veterans Affairs. There were many more noncombat deaths in those conflicts. But the point here is the country is at war with a global pandemic and the President spent the week on the golf course and tweeting about his election loss instead of trying to save Americans.

It’s worth mentioning, in case nobody has told him, that more than 3,700 US Covid deaths were reported Tuesday, a frightening new record that will soon be eclipsed since the country notched a record number of new hospitalizations on the same day, which was soon broken on Wednesday.

The 3,700 deaths in one day, for context, is more than half the US casualties on D-Day and more than the entire Tet Offensive in Vietnam.

Many people have pointed out the US is suffering a 9/11 every day. But the sad truth of that comparison has worn off as the Covid-19 numbers have grown more unfathomable. And while 9/11 was a single attack that changed the way Americans live, this war with coronavirus is still surging.

We know that so many more Americans will die.

  1. What’s most incredible at this point is that he was quick to claim credit for ‘his’ vaccine, when Pfhizer funded their own, but then off loaded the distribution (somewhat) onto the states. He had done the same with the PPE in not triggered the Defense production Act. Why? Because Jared or someone told him that Trump insiders could make more money by getting control of supplies first and then orchestrate a bidding war among the states and cities, which is exactly what happened. A special prosecutor is needed just for this event. And now, we see a replay where despite Gordon’s publishing that huge amount of the vaccine are sitting in Michigan, the first batch has not only been pilfered, but half of the promised first batches disappeard. And this is after a big promise to do 20 million by Dec. 31rst. As to digging into this now, that is impossible as the Trump regime is hunkered down, focuse solely it appears on The Steal.

  2. This pitiful excuse for a human , Does exactliy What his Daddy In Israel told him to Do .
    Every time that we elect a republican as President the United States ,
    the USA/World suffers a Catasrophic world Changing Event in the Past & the Present . 9-11 , now Covid .
    It seems that these republican “presidents” are Trying to make Their Names Remembered & Known By the Amout of Treason Committed On Their Watch , A Pitiful Memory of their service , Sad Actually .

  3. Way too much emphasis is placed on good teeth in America. We may want to equate perfect teeth with the Devil. Those are as real as Ivana’s face. Sorry, distracted.
    How are the massive numbers of human death not understood? The majority are our elders, we don’t care?
    I guess if you put new teeth on an old man it’s all good.
