Dan Rather says Trump ‘Is Not Going To Come To Anybody’s Rescue’

Both Dan Rather and Carl Bernstein were on CNN this morning, and they both made very good points about Donald Trump and his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic. They were both there to comment on Trump’s latest boondoggle, that of informing state governors, in essence, that this is their baby and “we are there to back you up should you fail.” Whoa. Time out. Did everybody else know that this was a state issue and not a federal emergency? And I assume that’s the fault of the media for not reporting that correctly? Here we go, another front in the War on Truth has just exploded.

Rather’s initial take was that Trump’s blaming the media was “disgraceful” and divisive, “at a time when we need to pull together more than ever. This is unacceptable and I think most Americans recognize it as such.” Rather’s connection was lost and the ball was passed to Bernstein, who said that he believed that Trump should broadcast daily briefings, because among other reasons, he’s a compulsive liar and needs to be called out for such.

“He’s focused on a war on truth as opposed to focused on a war against a deadly plague.” That’s it in a nutshell. Trump doesn’t care what happens to America. He’s covered in all events, health wise, money wise, he’s got his. All he needs to do is fix the optics of this deal somehow and get reelected and he’ll be just fine. That is the extent of “leadership” you’re going to get from the man, which is to say you’re not going to get any at all, get used to it.

And that’s pretty much what Dan Rather had to say. “Until and unless he proves differently, I’d pay far less attention to president Trump. I really regret having to have said that. But he’s not going to come to anybody’s rescue and the faster we realize that, the better off we’ll be.”

The only problem with what Rather said, is what do we do? If the steward of the government is incompetent to pull it’s levers, what is our recourse? Guess we’re gonna find out.

Here’s the four minute clip.

As I said before. He cannot lead because he does not care. He does not care because he was elected by default. We cannot let this happen again to Our Country.

Trump will use the threat of economic depression to declare martial law and suspend the elections. It’s what any dictator would do.

Exactly what i’ve been saying. There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING this POS won’t do to cheat, lie & deceive in order to win. After all, the SDNY might have him in a matching orange suit when / if, he leaves.

Anybody notice that when people start railing against Trump policies, they suddenly lose their feed? Is this administration trying to illegally censor any criticism? Do they have agents planted in the FCC network that are sanitizing any critique of Trump? Seems suspicious.

donnie is having information videos once a day which are IN FACT rallies for his lemmings. he surrounds himself with his kool aid drinking Idiotic apprentices who are sucking up (and who will be thrown under the bus the second they stop kissing his €£¥§€#$). I turned the tv on while fixing supper tonight and heard his whiney voice acting like a two year old with a dirty diaper and had to turn the tv off before I vomited. THESE ARE POLITICAL CAMPAIGN SHOWS and I AM ASKING FOR BIDEN AND SANDERS TO GET EQUAL TIME. During the 2016 campaign… Read more »
