“The man has absolutely no empathy,” Seth said. “He couldn’t care less about the huge number of Americans who have gotten sick and died from this pandemic.”
“I know,” Carol agreed. “All he cares about are his ratings and he’s trying to leverage the pandemic to help him get re-elected.”
“He thinks that his actions will somehow burnish his reputation, but all it’s doing is exposing to people what a moron he really is,” Amanda added.
“Right,” agreed Jack. “He’s telling businesses and restaurants to reopen and is encouraging the public to go out and resume their lives the way they were before the pandemic. He should, instead, be listening to the professionals and telling people to be patient and to stay at home and to maintain proper social distancing until it’s proven to be safe again.”
“Any normal president would do that, but he’s not normal,” Seth said. “He’d rather lie if it makes him look good than to tell the truth.”
“It’s unbelievable how fast this has happened to our country,” Carol said. “In fewer than four years he and his Republican enablers have destroyed an America that it took 230 years to build.”
