Begone Mr. Trump!




Find a new home Mr. Trump! New York doesn't want you.  Neither does Florida! And take your Proud Boys, QAnon, and your other deplorables with you! America has voted. You are the loser. America no longer wants you.

You should have been gone right after the Mueller Investigation. But your Attorney General William Barr saved your ass! No collusion! No Obstruction! That's what Barr said, and that's what you and your followers proclaimed. 

But over seven hundred former federal prosecutors signed a letter saying you would have been prosecuted for obstruction if you were not President.  If there were no obstruction, Mueller surely would have been able to prove that you and your intermediaries colluded with the Russians and helped them interfere in our elections.

You should have been gone right after the impeachment.   Yes, your "perfect" phone call. You withheld military aid for a country in a war with Russia in order to coerce its leaders to provide damaging material against a potential Presidential Primary candidate. 

But all but one of the Republican Senators saved your ass!  Afterwards, you became King Trump, all knowing and all powerful.  No one was willing to get in your way.

What was it you once said? "I alone can fix it." But you didn't fix it, did you?

You could have and should have fixed our country's response to the coronavirus! You, and you alone are responsible for too many Americans who have died from the coronavirus.  

All you had to do was to lead the country in fighting the coronavirus.  You should have echoed CDC guidelines and strongly recommended that Americans wear a mask and social distance.  You should have set an example and worn a mask yourself.  Instead, you made it into some sort of personal freedom on whether an American citizen should wear a mask or not.

You could have and should have enacted the Defense Production Act and provided the necessary PPE first response workers desperately needed.  Instead, the states had to compete against each other to acquire the necessary PPE.

Congressman Lloyd Doggett provides a timeline of your coronavirus responses on his blog. And it includes memos to you that Bob Woodward revealed in his book Rage.


Timeline of Trump's Coronavirus Responses



I mention Bob Woodward's book about you, so aptly titled Rage. Here is my review:




Rage is the second book that Bob Woodward has written about Donald Trump.  Fear was the title of the first book.  Donald Trump was disappointed with the first book, and complained that he was never interviewed for it.  At the time, Trump's staff would not give Woodward access to Trump.  For the second book, Bob Woodward was able to interview Donald Trump  no less than seventeen times, and queried Trump extensively about the problems confronting America and his Presidency.

During a television interview shortly after Fear was published, Woodward was asked to give his bottomline assessment of Trump's leadership.  Woodward replied, "Let's hope to God we don't have a crisis."  We had a crisis, the coronavirus.  In the midst of the coronavirus, we had the crisis over Black Lives Matter versus Trump's Law and Order.  And Woodward gave Trump every opportunity to explain his actions and inactions.

Woodward ends the book with the following paragraph:

"When his performance as president is taken in its entirety, I can reach only one conclusion:  Trump is the wrong man for the job."

Here's my review of Woodward's first book about you, Fear: Trump in the White House


I posted my review on Sep 25, 2018 and ended it with this premonition:

"Yes, real power is fear. And I am afraid."
                        Jerry Morris

                                –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Yes,   I am still afraid! You lost the election but you still don't want to go!

You contested the election in the courts.  You lost.

You contested the election in the legislatures.  You lost.

You're contesting the election in Congress.  And you will lose....

You are only making things worse.  You are still President in name only.  You should resign.

You have done nothing whatsoever to curtail the coronavirus pandemic.  Leading up to the election, there were  9,297,353 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the United States. And 231,599 Americans died during the pandemic.  

On the first of January the total number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus was a staggering 19,663,976. Even worse, 341,199 Americans have died from the coronavirus. 

Since the election, over 109,600 American have  died from the coronavirus.  All because of you.

Begone Mr. Trump!
