Death By Trump

As of today, over 156,000 Americans have died from the Trump virus, and approximately 1,000 more die each day.  And he does nothing about it, but lie and ignore the facts as put forth by scientists and epidemiologists to help save lives. He has called the pandemic a hoax and downplayed the seriousness of the disease.  He has touted the use of ineffective and outright dangerous drugs as a treatment of a disease he has said will disappear shortly.  He has denied that children can be affected by the virus and are actually immune to the disease. He is even trying to force parents to send their children back to school without adequate protection, as his son continues his education online.

He has fought social distancing, the use of masks to stop the spread of the disease, and called such measures unpatriotic.  All solely to get people back to work to help the economy and help his re-election. His ass-kissing sycophants serving as governors, especially in Southern states, refuse to enact measures to save the lives of their citizens, for fear of drawing the ire of Trump. As of now, the virus is ravaging these states and the governors do nothing.  Blind loyalty to Trump is killing thousands.

Luckily I do not live in the South, under a Republican Trump executioner.  Fortunately, I live in New York where we have a governor who is competent and who has acted quickly and decisively.
But I still do not feel safe from the deadly effect of Trump's dangerous and irresponsible behavior. 

With every poll showing that Trump is losing by rather large margins to Joe Biden, Trump is panicking.  In an attempt to suppress the vote, especially voting by mail, Trump is attacking the Post Office. In May he appointed Luis DeJoy, a major Trump donor to be the new Postmaster General, which gives Trump major control over the workings of the Post Office.  Since DeJoy has taken control he has ordered cost-cutting measures which in essence has caused major delays, in some instances, of postal services including delivery of the mail.
Obviously, Trump wants to dramatically slow the delivery of mail in the future, especially mail-in ballots that could be votes for his opponent. The problem is that not only election ballots will be affected, but everything else handled by the Postal Service, including prescription medications.

From the start of the pandemic people, especially the elderly, have had their prescriptions delivered by the Post Office.  I am one of these people.  I do not want to risk contracting the Trump virus by standing in line at the pharmacy, so I have my medications delivered.  Since Trump has begun to manipulate the Post Office for his benefit I have noticed a slow down of the delivery of my medications.  Before Trump's despicable actions I used to receive my medications 2 to 3 days after they were shipped.  I am now waiting for a week or more.  I am still waiting for one medication to be delivered and I only have one pill left!

I don't think I will be in grave danger if I have to wait a couple of days longer for my medications, but I am sure that some people will suffer very harmful effects or even death if their medications are not delivered in a timely fashion. 

Election day can't come soon enough for millions of us Americans who are in danger of dying because of the actions and inactions of Donald Trump.  I can just see death certificates specifying the cause of death as "death by Trump".
