The utter pettiness of this toxic, dystopian bully astounds. People are sick and dying and sequestering themselves away from any semblance of normalcy, and Trump has never uttered a single word of comfort, sympathy, empathy or compassion for those suffering.
Instead, as it always it, it is only about himself.
After 9/11, and the collapse of the Word Trade Center twin towers, he bragged (falsely) that he now had the tallest building in lower Manhattan. Nothing about the victims. No sympathy for those who suffered (and still suffered) losses of unimaginable enormity. Just another excuse to brag and lie.
And now he is doing it again. People are losing parents and grandparents and can’t even be there to say a final goodbye, and Trump and his allies are talking about sacrificing even more to save their financial investments.
Oh, and ratings. Trump has the ratings. The best ratings.
