What I haven't heard talked about

is...after this weekend over 100,000 people will have died. Those 100,000 people have families and friends and major loved ones. It is beyond imagination the pain our country is feeling.

Trump can only talk about winning.

1. But he ordered flags flown at half staff for them

I'm sure in his narcissistic mind he thinks that makes up for everything.

2. He was probably forced to by White House aids

or maybe Ivanka told him if he didnít it would give Pelosi and Schumer something to attack him with.

One thing is certain, he didnít do it out of empathy for the dead and their families. Trump is a psychopath.

6. Biden suggested doing this when he was interviewed

by Colbert. Trump ordered the flags lowered the next day. Trump claims that he does not watch those shows. Riiight.

9. Only after having his arm twisted by Chuck and Nancy.

Otherwise it never would have occurred to him. Heartless bastard.

4. dumpie quote "why in the hell should I lower flags for people I never met?"

I made that up but that's just how he thinks,"I've seen him/her but don't know them, think they get covfee or something" Hell he didn't want to lower it for John McCain

7. It's like a war

Where we are losing lots of troops quickly. The Second War in Iraq started March 3, 2003. This pandemic started around that date. In 2003 if we had lost 100k troops by Memorial Day, we would have been in shock.

10. Wonders why NYT and other major papers don't post a running list of the names of the dead.

That would be so stark and shocking. Seems like a no brainer. But maybe that's just me.
