Reckless Endangerment

By Glenn

Reckless behavior is shameful. Since February 7 Donald Trump knew that Covid 19 was a deadly airborne disease.  He knew it was a killer.  He played it down, and it has now killed more than 210,000 Americans.

For the last eight months Donald has relentlessly mocked America’s doctors, scientists and anyone concerned about Covid 19.  While the vast majority of Americans have accepted safety protocols, Donald and his inner circle pretended as if they were immune to reality.  

They didn’t wear masks.  They didn’t practice physical distancing.  They even gathered in large numbers for rallies and fundraisers.   Donald Trump’s behavior made it clear that he does not respect the office he holds nor the people around him.  

Donald’ reckless behavior has put him in the hospital as well as former Governor Chris Christie.  

The long list of those around him infected includes his wife Melania Trump, Hope Hicks, Sen. Thom Tillis (R), Sen. Ron Johnson (R), Sen. Mike Lee (R), Kellyanne Conway (Counselor to the President), Ronna McDaniel (Chair of the RNC), Fr. John Jenkins  (President of Notre Dame), Bill Stepien (Trump campaign manager), Kayleigh McEnany (White House Press Secretary) and  four White House staffers.

Days before Donald Trump felt weak, he mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask.  Donald’s family even refused to wear them at the debate.  They broke the rules knowing they would receive special treatment.

Even after Donald tested positive he held two fundraisers.  Without a mask he greeted his big money donors and shook hands.  What a magnificent deal!  I gave money to Donald, won a free trip to quarantine.  Maybe even the hospital!

Can you imagine your husband, your wife, your child, your boss or your coworker treating you this way?  Would you see their behavior as a sign of respect or disdain?

Has Donald learned his lesson?  Has he changed his behavior?  Is he ready to respect the people around him? No.

On Sunday he demanded a joy ride around the hospital.  Donald demanded Secret Service Agents drive him in circles so he could wave to a crowd.  They had to breathe air with Covid 19 in a hermetically sealed SUV so he could stroke his ego. 

Those agents can’t go home to their loved ones. They can’t hug their wives or husbands.  They can’t put their kids to bed? Why? Because they work for a person so weak he needs adoration.

When Donald returned to the White House on Monday, the first thing he did was remove his mask and smirked.  He put everyone around him at risk again.  His disrespect for human life and our safety is huge.  Does his disrespectful behavior keep America safe and secure?
