I get it

President Trump it is a relief that you and Mrs. Trump. are in the process of recovery from coronavirus. Sadly it’s very likely you both contracted the virus because of your lack of following the CDC and your own physician’s recommendations. That behavior shows your defiance, which is significant in the 3+ years of your presidency. Natural and logical consequences were that you were highly likely to acquire the virus, and so both of you did.

“I GET IT” was your declaration upon leaving Walter Reed Hospital. Yet your own behavior demonstrated the opposite. Commandeering Secret Service Officers to take you on a JOY RIDE, to see your supporters is unconscionable. Needlessly endangering them, you also failed fully in modeling for the country, leadership and integrity,in the face of a pandemic, which has already had great consequences; loss of life, loss of jobs, loss of housing, increased personal debt by those who can least afford it, increase in homelessness, alcohol and drug use, damage to the economy and federal money wasted.

It appears to many that your behavior is on the path of losing the 2020 election.

For the sake of the American people ENOUGH!

Elaine Tyrie
