As it turns out, it’s not just those who didn’t vote for President Donald Trump who think he’s doing an abysmal job of handling the coronavirus crisis, and many longtime Republicans are now speaking out and making it clear they no longer support the president.
On Friday morning, the group Conservatives for the Rule of Law posted a video on YouTube that perfectly spells out just how many members of the GOP feel about the current head of state, with five self-identified Republicans from Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania lambasting Trump:
“He told us this infection would just go away, even as it ripped across other countries. He’s been lying to us about available testing. He has squandered the one advantage that America had: time to prepare. He says he puts America first, but it’s clear he only knows how to put Trump first. This is a crisis, and we need real leadership. Donald Trump is incapable of it.”
Bill Kristol, Director of Republicans for the Rule of Law, noted in a statement that was released in conjunction with the video:
“When President Trump lied about the coronavirus, about its seriousness, and about the government’s response to it, he damaged the very foundation of our government. The coronavirus is a threat to our people. But the president’s mendacity is a threat to our Constitution.”
Not only that, but Trump doesn’t even think Congress has a right to investigate his pathetic response to the virus that has so far left 6,100 Americans dead and another 245,000 sick. At his daily coronavirus press conference Thursday, Trump whined:
“I want to remind everyone here in our nation’s capital, especially in Congress, that this is not the time for politics. Endless partisan investigations — here we go again — have already done extraordinary damage to our country in recent years.”
As if anyone could do more damage than Donald Trump has over the past three and a half years in office.
