Trump continues to divide the country over the corona virus.

It is intolerable.

We must be united if we are ever going to get out of this mess. We cannot have the leader of our country telling lies or spreading false hopes about when it is going to end or what medicines he believes will cure it.

We cannot continue to be divided.

Many of Trump's supporters still believe it is a hoax. He does not even attempt to persuade them of the seriousness of what we are facing.

He is like the leader of the band on the Titanic.

It is terrible for our country.

By playing on to the last they may have calmed people during the boarding of lifeboats and saved lives.

But I doubt that any of Trump’s followers think this is a “hoax” at this point. It’s starting to hit them in their pocket books. They believe it, now.

proportion. And I'm not talking only about the spring break kids.

They blame the pocketbook hit on the media, and yes, Obama, for leaving us unprepared.

I kid you not.
