The Calmer-in-Chief ?

Should a President attempt to calm the citizenry during times of crisis? Should we just expect that from the leader of our country?

Rush Limbaugh says it is nothing much more than a common cold. The World Health Organization says it is a possible pandemic. Who should we listen to? Should we take precautions?

Trump orchestrates the message thru people like Rush, Hannity, Ingraham, and others. Then he has a rally in Charleston and calls it a "hoax". When informed of the possible political consequences, he changed his answer to say something like "the Democrats are the hoax". It was plain to see what he said the first time he said it.

There is no useful purpose in orchestrating fear and anxieties. People want to live in safety. They want to know that their leader stands with them.

1. First they need a "leader" not some self-serving, orange, pussy grabbing sack of shit.

I say this with as much support for the administration as I am capable of.

2. His malignant narcissism

Doesn’t allow him the capacity to care about others. One of the primary reasons he is unfit to serve the public.

But my answers to your first two questions are “yes“ and “yes“.

3. It's hard to remain calm when a demented circus clown is

running the show.

I'd feel more secure walking through the Serengeti wearing a zebra suit.

11. I think mf45 is now scared shitless he has f'ed up majorly

He fired the CDC responders, which is verifiable truth, (snopes) ignored warnings since December coming out of China and now the chickens are coming home to roost. Once it starts hitting his rural white base he is toast. I can see all the Presidential candidates calling him out for his incompetence and never expressing concern for Americans. Have you heard him say to take precautions? No only that it’s a hoax. The stock market drop last week is going to continue this up coming week.

I see an Ides of March event taking him out.
