It was depressing to see how many people at his rally thought it was funny.
Sad too to see a president ridiculing the name of a virus that has so far killed over 120,000 Americans in less than four months.
Yes, yes ... Because the name of "the virus" is what's REALLY important in all of this. Not the immediate reaction when the first batch of tests received were already tainted with "the virus", so we began quickly assembling our own. Not the quick shift to the US manufacturing ventilators and PPE. Not breaking through the red tape of the FDA to fast track therapeutics and vaccines. Not the fact that nearly 10% of the country has been tested already, which has been the big battle cry about testing being necessary before people are "comfortable" going back to work.
Yep - but let's focus on the name used. Because that's what's REALLY important! As we've come to expect in this board - astute observations and comments as always. It just astounds me when I see the criteria some of you use in making your decisions.
He is inept. Period. He is an instigator and if you think his renaming covid is not a big deal, you are one of his blind followers. He is personally causing an Asian backlash by continually referring to it as the "Wuhan virus", the "Chinese flu/ China virus" or even his latest of "Kung Flu". It is not funny and it is not acceptable. It is a form of racism and it is not in any way appropriate. The virus has a proper name. Call it the name given to it: Covid-19 for short. Co
isease 2019. I've seen too much racism over him calling it anything related to the Asian countries and as the mother of a Chinese child, he pisses me off to no end. He is a racist, Plain and simple. He has bungled this whole thing.. hell, he has bungled the last 4 years he's been in office, but what can you expect from a man that was on a reality tv show? We might as well have one of the Jersey Shore kids in office at this point as they are on the same idiocy level as he is.
