Obama and Biden may have messed up the response to H1N1 but they learned from their mistakes. They put together a Pandemic Response Team, overhauled the CDC, embedded CDC members in China as an early warning system (with Chinese cooperation), and wrote a substantial playbook on how to handle a pandemic. Trump, naturally, had to be the anti-Obama and dismantled all of that - disbanded the Pandemic Response Team, filled the CDC with political toadies, and ignored the response playbook, all with disastrous results. In fact it's clear now that Trump has given up any attempt to deal with this crisis. Just let it rage until the whole country is infected, with millions dead. I seriously doubt that he cares. And you think that Biden could do worse? I'm hard pressed to imagine how he could do worse than doing nothing. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Ds listen to experts and learn from their mistakes and Rs don't.

Might I add that the difference between Republicans and everyone else is Nixon, Iran-Contra, George W. Bush, The Chump, and over a hundred indicted, prosecuted and convicted appointees in just the past 50 years. The current president is an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal crime that saw his personal lawyer imprisoned. While the Dems may have lost my trust, the GOP has lost its humanity and has no business being allowed to keep its party registration. The current Republican president is responsible for several bloody acts of terror against minorities as well as a recently foiled attempt to kidnap and kill a sitting governor, and he's still at it chanting "LOCK HER UP, LOCK'EM ALL UP" at his ego-stroking cult gatherings, endangering her life and others by calling on his cult followers to do them harm.

Each day The Chump remains in office he represents a greater clear and present danger to the USA. He cannot be trusted to put the nation's interests above his own interests. The USA becomes a more cruel place with each passing day of this wannabe dictatorship. How many deaths, injuries and mass shootings must members of The Chump’s Base commit before Congress takes action and removes this national offense from office? How many more acts of terror must he provoke? It's way past time to invoke the 25th Amendment. After losing the election he will seek to take out his revenge upon the nation: a scorched earth policy. Will Moscow Mitch chuckle about that on national TV, too?
