Unadulterated Hypocrisy

“I have no doubt that the outcome would have been different if it weren’t for that clown who is in the White House,” James said.

“No doubt,” Sharon agreed. “He lacks empathy for those who have lost loved ones and/or their livelihoods as a result of his incompetence.”

“But it’s not just incompetence,” James said. “He knew what this virus could do, but he purposefully lied to the American public because he thought telling the truth about the pandemic would make him look bad and negatively affect his ability to be re-elected.”

“And yet he, the President of the United States, refuses to take any responsibility for the situation our country is in,” Sharon said. “That’s heresy.”

“And the Republicans in Congress at best say nothing and at worst still support him. That’s unadulterated hypocrisy,” James added.

    Absolutely true. I can understand DT doing what he is because he wants to remain in White House but why is his party supporting him. They are also without moral standards

    That he made the situation worse, there’s no doubt in my mind. But the guy is certainly a schemer, so it is interesting to try to work out what is driving him.
    There was a clip on our news last night with him referring to COVID again as the China Virus, so certainly one of his drivers is to weaken China.

        Oh, wow, I hope you didn’t think I meant I had no comments about YOUR work! This is the problem with written words…they can be read in different ways.

    Another very valid conversation that should never have to be said about our president. Good job on the prompts!
