Who infected Donald Trump?

It wasn’t the haters who got him sick.

It was not the people who said to his face ‘you’re wrong’ and trusted the science.

It wasn’t the people who wear masks to protect other people from their breath.

The left didn’t infect him. The media didn’t infect him. It wasn’t Black Lives Matter. It wasn’t Antifa.

He was infected by the people who embraced and enabled his pathological contempt for any authority outside himself, for any expertise that did not submit itself to his uneducated, uninformed, paranoid and narcissistic political instinct.

It was the people who are terrified to stand up to him and tell him he’s wrong, for fear of what he’d do to their political fortunes.

It was the people who said “You’re right” no matter what batcrap lunacy escaped his mouth [or fingers]. It was the people who refuse to wear masks because the pandemic is just liberals blowing things out of proportion to hurt him politically. In Italy and Spain.

It was the people who would follow him no matter where he led…

His own supporters infected him, not his detractors.

If his political detractors had their way, he’d be COVID-negative, complaining about all of this being a hoax designed to make him look bad, benefitting, as he always has, from the protection provided by those he openly despises.

He was infected by your adoration.

May he recover from both.

One thought on “Who infected Donald Trump?

  1. Kudos to you for having the courage to speak out as you do. Excellent article.
    I can’t wait to hear the next “spin” he puts on things (a conspiracy to infect him, or his attempt to save a failing campaign because of his ignorance & avoidance of the pandemic?).
