The Stable Genius continues to baffle me.
Donald J. Trump insists that our children must attend school in classrooms. It’s better to put the students in classrooms than to require them to study at home via online instruction.
What, then, shall we do about the scheduled Republican National Convention that will nominate Trump for a second term as president? He cancelled the RNC in Jacksonville, Fla., citing health concerns. “It’s not the right time” to have a convention with delegates crammed into the same arena, he said.
Mixed messaging anyone? Anyone?
This is part of a much larger problem associated with the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. At one level, Trump says one thing. At another level, he says something quite different.
He scoffed at masks. Now he’s all for them … more or less. He called the pandemic a “Democrat hoax.” Now he says the worst of the pandemic is yet to come before it gets better.
Trump ignores advice from medical experts. Then listens to talk show hosts and acts on their “advice.”
Trump says he’s doing a “fantastic” job, but the rate of infection is accelerating, not slowing down.
The latest bit of news involves the GOP nominating convention. Trump is concerned about potential health hazard to politicians and delegates. I applaud his decision to forgo the in-person gathering in Jacksonville.
If only, though, he would express as much concern about the health and safety of our children, their friends and families and the teachers who educate them.
This guy confuses the daylights out of me.
