“Trump threatens to quit WHO, calling health body ‘puppet of China”

 

It would be nice to hear prominent Americans – politicians, writers, academics, scientists – speak out about this man and his ravings.

Some do, but remarkably few, I think, considering how serious the situation is.

We have a madman exercising power in the world’s most powerful country. He makes new absurd claims almost daily.

And the truth is, he achieves nothing except to make millions of people in the world miserable, as people in Iran, Palestine, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, and many other places.

As if there weren’t already enough misery.

And he attacks such an important part of the world’s economy as China at a time of great economic fragility.

His behavior around all aspects of the coronavirus literally is criminal. His delays and blunders have cost many lives in his own country, but he’ll blame it all on China with no evidence at all.

What can one say of a leader who actually attacks the WHO at such a time? A leader who attacks instead of cooperating?

I don’t recall anything quite like it, even in the Cold War.

It is impossible to cite a single worthy accomplishment by Trump, but there is a long list of failures and threats and destructive behaviors. Is that really America’s idea of a leader?

By the way, he has just told the world that he is self-administering the anti-malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine, as a preventive measure.

All experts warn against doing that – the drug has dangerous side-effects and should only be used in a hospital setting, if at all – but here’s the President telling millions that he does, thus effectively endorsing it for them. It is a very good measure of his sense of responsibility.

Just as is the fact that he never puts a mask on. I’ve seen a number of world leaders photographed with face masks on, including the President of China, but far be it from Trump to offer a responsible example to his people.

 

AFTERNOTE:

As I’ve already written, new evidence (dated X-rays) suggests strongly that the coronavirus appeared in France in November, 2019.

That re-inforces previous technical evidence about the origin of the virus having had nothing to do with a bio-lab or even the city of Wuhan.

At some point, it jumped from animals to humans, as viruses often do. All the evidence we have contradicts what Trump keeps yelling about China and its responsibility.

But what are facts to a man spewing hatred?
