I have already written about how I reluctantly voted for Donald Trump over Joe Biden based on the results of policy rather than who has the better personality. Trump obviously was not going to win any Emmys for his “masterful use of television,” but we’ll talk about that later. I have unified Trump to a handful of the MAGA/”KAG” people (who did not turn out to be white supremacists) and it felt pretty good. As a moderate (that admittedly leans slightly to the right), it is kind of annoying to see how un-self-aware the politicians and the “journalists” are in this world. Almost anyone who was not beholden to the man could see many…MANY flaws with someone like Donald Trump, especially as a liar and an adulterer. But in that sense, Trump was a human. An incredibly flawed and un-self-aware human, but a human nonetheless. But it seems like all the people who criticize(d) Donald Trump ignored the four fingers that pointed back at them. Let’s start with the whole vaccine fiasco.
First of all, by the CDC’s own admission, the three COVID vaccines used in the U.S.A. to treat COVID have not gone through the full FDA approval process and are just on emergency use authorization. That is not to say that the vaccines are not effective. The data and results on most of these vaccines have been available on the CDC website for months. To be fair, I doubt most of the population read the results of the clinical trials or followed the news on the clinical trials as I did. Heck, I got the Pfizer vaccine. I am not going to advocate everyone get the vaccine because people do not have the same medical background as me and a one-size-fits-all solution sounds a bit unconstitutional. So talk to your doctor who runs tests on you rather than some random bureaucrat that spends his time on television, approving funds for questionable research, and who will face no consequence if he is wrong or misleads. In fact, you should not trust politicians that were playing a political game with vaccines.
Whether you want to admit it or not, former President Trump’s aptly named Operation Warp Speed, broke the record for the fastest vaccine developed and distributed in human history. Does that mean Trump should get credit for the vaccine? I won’t comment. But the DNC’s politicians sure as hell should not be getting credit. Why? Because they spent most of 2020 throwing shade on the COVID vaccine. Including the current President, the current Vice President, some governors (including Cuomo of all people), and some congressional Democrats. Now you have White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki talking about vaccine hesitancy of “white conservative communities,” and President Biden implying unvaccinated Americans are not as smart as he thought. I don’t know why Psaki is blaming “white conservatives” when black and Hispanic people seem less likely to get the vaccine. I mean who can blame them, according to Biden it’s because of what happened to the “Tuskegee Airmen” (don’t worry I know what he meant) and because Hispanic people are worried about getting deported (again his words not mine). The lack of self-awareness is hysterical. That’s just about the COVID vaccine, now let’s talk about the lockdown hypocrisy.
I remember when Trump was getting impeached for the first time and the common sound bites from the Democrats were “quid pro quo” and “no one is above the law.” The second one is the issue here. The lockdowns imposed by governors had detrimental effects on this economy and the mental health of the population. Let’s start with Michigan and its governor. Whitmer had her own nursing home scandal just like Cuomo, but I didn’t think it was a big deal because Whitmer was not getting national praise from her party. The main focus here is how she violated her own lockdown policies. One of the most ironic things is that she blamed travelers for causing new COVID variant cases to appear in her state. But this is despite the fact that she traveled out of state numerous times for personal reasons including the aforementioned Florida. I hope the people of Michigan vote her out and replace her with a less arrogant governor. Kind of like what the Californians are about to decide on with their hypocritical governor.
I could go on and on about how Trump-criticizing politicians violated their own rules and this is just one way that our leaders are hypocritical. I can’t stand the people who act like their party is good and the other side is bad. Both sides suck and both sides are hypocritical. The only difference is that it seems most of the mainstream media only points the fingers at Trump and the RNC. The only real exception is Fox News which points fingers in the other directions. But even they have more moderate hosts like Cavuto and Wallace. The four fingers will forever go unnoticed.
