Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 12, 2020

We are facing a pandemic about which US President Donald Trump appears incapable of telling the truth " assuming he even knows it " and without quick action, a lot of people are going to get sick. Some of them will die. The president's incoherence has reached a level that is a hazard to public health. The best thing Trump can do for the country, to speed its response to the novel coronavirus, is resign and let someone capable take over.

Anyone want to argue at this point that the country isn't better off without Trump?

Anyone at all?

Agreed. It would be the first time in his miserable and pathetic life he did something right.

@#1 ... To improve the US COVID response, Donald Trump should resign ...

To improve the US COVID response, I don't think, at this point, that Pres Trump should resign.

But, channeling Lee Iacocca, I think Pres Trump should either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Pres Trump has shown, rather extensively, that he is unable to lead the US COVID-19 response.

I doubt if Pres Trump is the type who follows anyone.

So that leaves, get out of the way.

So I do not think, at this point, that Pres Trump should resign.

But he needs to get out of the way and let people with credibility and knowledge lead us through this crisis.
