I don’t feel sorry for you because that would be demeaning, but I do regret that you were a True Believer. For whatever reason, you believed and trusted your president. You were forgotten at an airport, and may be dead now due to the unprecedented spread of covid 19. Your commonsense has been subverted away from reality (otherwise known as science). You have been left to hang out to dry after all the deception.

One man with the virus was quoted as saying he was willing to die for the president (and probably did). Another died in hospital from the virus, saying it was a hoax. Another admitted she voted for our president because she felt good just looking at him. Believing in another’s honesty, integrity and caring are positive traits. What’s not right is the object of your idealism disdaining you, endangering, and gambling with your life to aggrandize his own. We have all been abused.

Our president’s recommendation for his base to celebrate Thanksgiving together and attend gatherings at church without masks while the virus is skyrocketing was not issued with caring for you, I fear, and not with your welfare in mind. I hope when this regrettable page of American history is behind us that we can reunite as one people with our barriers down, truth on our lips and respect for one another. Our trust has been violated, and I pray we recover.

  • Nan, when historians look back at this presidency, the fact he made wearing a mask a political statement against him is the most indicative metaphor of his inept, corrupt presidency. The protocols of wearing masks and social distancing keep people safe. The rash public gathering without such protocols or without so avoiding in the first place do not.

    Since the outgoing president chose to misinform us from the get go, he often double downed on the misleading, so as not to admit this failing. Sadly, sycophant governors and legislators went along with it and made it a political either/ or case of safety vs economy.

    That should never have been a binary argument and Americans need more of both, with the pendulum more to the safety side. But, because of the outgoing president’s failure to lead, the GOP had to jump on the re-open the economy bandwagon and damn the mask as a tactic.

    I do not wear a mask to spite Donald Trump. That is inane. I wear to protect others and me. Keith
