Trump’s Nonsense-Tweet about Germany

From my Writing Room

On 9 December, 2020, a day when the United States sadly lost more people (3,054) due to the Corona Virus than on the attack on Pearl Harbor (2,403) and during the terror assaults in 2001 (2,977), the dumbest president ever in place arrogantly tweeted the following:

“Germany has consistently been used by my obnoxious critics as the country that we should follow on the way to handle the China Virus. So much for that argument. I love Germany – vaccines are on the way.”

True, Germany had a record number of 590 deaths on one day due to the corona virus. This is a reason for a sitting American president to ridicule via tweet a country where, in contrast to his own, human lives matter and a social, caring system is in place to help the people. There, people can stay home while maintaining a livelihood. For the very same reason Germany can afford to go into another hard lock-down over Christmas.

The German government under an attentive chancellor Angela Merkel – a true leader, by the way – is at least attempting to tackle problems in a responsible and realistic way to protect their people.

In contrast, the self-declared genius from the White House has downplayed the virus from the beginning while millions – many of them bible-thumping folks – kept supporting him. Instead of pointing his finger to others, this so-called president, a loser and psychopath all through, should have cleaned up the countless deficiencies in his own Christian country. Besides, in the US 87 people per 100,000 have died from the virus, in Germany 24.

If they had a conscience combined with sane judgement, those of the holy folks who have voted for Trump and support(ed) him would be ashamed for the rest of their lives. It is not going to happen. So far for a special alignment of Christian morality. People attuned to a bit more authenticity want no part of it.

One can only wish for Trump’s disciples to stay in their propaganda temples for which they have the balls to use the term “churches”, locked up from outside if possible, never come out again and keep praying twenty-four seven. The lunatic still occupying the White House could only become president because of the pathetic failure of millions of brainwashed Americans completely out of touch with reality.

Relief

It’s not for Republicans, it’s not for Democrats: Finally a good, inspiring message for all well-disposed Americans after four years of idiocy, chaos, bullying, and elusive stupidity: Former presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama volunteer to promote confidence in a vaccine’s safety. President-elect Joe Biden asks Americans to mask during the first 100 days of his presidency.

I am not American, but I will mask as I did before not only for my wife’s and my own safety, but also for the safety of others – and also to show my support for the new administration.

The new president will face tremendous problems, but it is nevertheless a relief to feel the normalcy coming back through people in charge who are at least trying to lead. And this is a good message for all Americans, regardless if they are aware of the damage done to the country in the past four years or not.
