Trump Is Painting Himself into a Corner Again [View all]

Yesterday's briefing, with Trump hinting that he will loosen restrictions soon, was a serious error on his part. In reality, he cannot even do that. The Governors of various states are tightening up restrictions, not loosening them, and Trump has no authority over those Governors.

I did notice, yesterday, that Trump dropped his moronic references to "The Chinese Virus." What he though was clever before, he has now learned got him nothing but condemnation. I'm not sure who convinced him to drop that clumsy, racist designation, but he dropped it.

He is using his daily rally-style Coronavirus briefings to test his own lamebrained ideas, it seems. When they don't work, he moves on as though he never said those things. That is his pattern. He says outrageous things, and then skips over them later, when they are proven to cause harm.

He fails miserably at leadership. Constantly. He does not lead public opinion, nor the decisions of those with cooler heads and practical sense. He throws things out, as if at random, and then ignores what he has said later, when nothing happens.

Sadly, we cannot be rid of that bloated excuse for a President. Not until January of 2021. We can only hope that more intelligent and thoughtful people will manage to stop him from acting on his foolish and harmful ideas.

Perhaps he'll swallow a fly while his mouth is open.
