  1. Scottie, your headline and first cartoon paint the bleak picture. Before the poor pandemic handling, a Pew poll was taken on Europe and 64% of Europeans said they do not trust the US president. Even further indicting, they trusted Putin and Xi more. Putin is trained to disinform and does it with precision. Xi consolidated power and makes sure his party whitewashes anything bad.

    Now with Trump choosing not to be the president we needed him to be back in January and forewarn and get prepared for the pandemic risk, choosing to naysay it, downplay it, and misinform which continues to this day, the world is horrified over our badly things are going here (horrified was the word used in a recent headline).

    A pandemic expert noted mission one of handling pandemics is be truthful with people. Unfortunately, Trump sees truth as a commodity and does not use it very much. So, we now have mistrust going on which is Trump’s preference. He perceives it helps him to tear down everyone else, but people need to see through this ongoing charade and see the president for what he is – an untruthful, corrupt bully. Keith

    • Hello Keith. Great comment. tRump has tried twice to buy or get the hoped for vaccine from the rest of the world for profit while China has announced a multi billion dollar fund to fight the CV19 virus in countries that need help. China also offered to send medical staff to those places needing them as well. So which country is winning the PR war and looks like the good guy? tRump sinks the US again, Putin must be so happy.

      The fact is with President Obama the world respected the US. Not just for our military might or our economic lust to buy things, but for the human rights goals we fostered, for the stance we took on right and wrong in the world.

      In three years that has sunk to below ground level. Intel agreements are gone, trust in the US is gone, distrust in the US president has soared, the US has broken treaties, insulted allies, tried hard to break up or interfere with NATO to the point where European leaders have said it is time for them to have a defense pack that did not include the US. Germany and France have been trying to find ways around the US sanctions on Iran, and the world is questioning why the US dollar is used as the world standard. If the US loses the control on the world the dollar standard has, then the US sinks as any kind of world power. That is why other countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia are trying so hard to undermine the use of the US dollar and the use of English as the universal air traffic / business language.

      • Scottie, well said. But, sadly this hard truth is not finding its way into more conservative media. We are so distracted by what inane thing the person says than what is actually happening. I just posted about Brazil, Russia and America having the same tell tale signs. In it, I cite two relative statistics that are important – with 5% of the global population, the US has 31% of the COVID-19 cases and 28% of the COVID-19 deaths. Trump said the former is a “badge of honor” due to testing, but others have tested more and saying people getting sick is a badge of honor is beyond inane. He claims this is a war. Well based on those statistics, we are losing that war on a relative basis. Keith

    • Hello Randy. Thank you. Rather silly right? The US president clearly is admitting he not only doesn’t know the laws, doesn’t want to follow the laws, but admits out right that he and his party want to keep people from voting. Hugs
