As the coronavirus rages from Washington State to New York City, Trump’s concern is for the economy, not your loved ones.
The Trump sycophants are arguing for risking the lives of Americans just to get money pumped back into the economy. Google “Texas Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, 69.” The majority of deaths will be grandparents but people of all ages, races, and religions will die. No one will be spared and the numbers left grieving will be staggering. But Trump cultist believe people are an expendable commodity and are willing to sacrifice you and your loved-ones lives so others can get about their economic business—you know, buying useless shit to enrich billionaires like the Waltons of Walmart who don’t pay a living wage, offer health insurance, or provide paid sick leave to their thousands and thousands of employees.
Trump WILL let your family die. His lawyers are fighting in court today—as the coronavirus rages on—to abolish the Affordable Care Act. Millions will be thrown off insurance, at the same time a bill for a coronavirus-hospital stay costs more than $35,000–even if you die! Believe me, as Trump likes to say, his coronavirus pandemic response is ALL about Trump’s bottom line. (Does Jared have those for-profit testing-site drive-throughs ready yet? And how about the $500 Billion big-business bail-out? Do you REALLY think Steve M’nuch would deny his buddy a cut?! They previewed exactly what they planned to do with the money when they demanded transactions be SECRET even as Trump declined to say he’d decline the money.)
This behavior isn’t new.
TRUMP DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR FAMILY
Keep reading if you want the story of how Trump denied his own sick nephew health insurance and medical coverage.
Excerpt from Douchebag Wisdom: Dealing with Donald Trump, Chapter 11, Scrooge Trump
Trump’s Own Ghost of the Past
“As for you, nephew, if you were in my will, I’d disinherit you!” said Scrooge to his nephew, Fred.
That could have been Donald Trump talking to his own family, for real, according to David Cay Johnston in his book, The Making of Donald Trump. Johnston, a Pulitzer-winning journalist has studied Trump for decades. My condolences, Dave: tough gig. Entertaining for sure, until somebody gets hurt.
Donald Trump IS Ebenezer Scrooge. He is a disgustingly selfish, revengeful human being. Trump knowingly and intentionally cut off health insurance from is own nephew who suffered from seizures and was eventually diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Here’s a portion of the story as reported by Johnston.
In 1999, Trump’s Father, Fred Sr., passed away. According to Johnston, Fred Sr. had written a Will after the death of his oldest son, Fred Jr., in 1981. That Will left the majority of Fred Sr.’s wealth to Donald and his surviving siblings. Fred Jr.’s family was largely cut out. Fred Jr.’s family sued saying Donald Trump had undue influence in that decision since Fred Sr. was suffering from dementia at the time he wrote the Will.
While Fred Sr. was alive, medical insurance and coverage had consistently been provided to Freddy Jr.’s family through Fred Str.’s company. This coverage was so crucial for Fred Sr.’s grandson who suffered from seizures that Trump Sr.’s lawyer sent a letter to the insurer after Fred Str.’s death in 1999 stating all costs for the child’s care should be covered regardless of caps on the plan.
Despite his father’s wishes, Donald Trump took action and canceled the coverage. Trump is quoted as saying, “Why should we give him medical coverage? They sued my father, essentially. I’m not thrilled when someone sues my father.”
Eventually, Trump settled the lawsuit. Did Baby Trump end up with medical coverage? We’ll never know. The settlement agreement is sealed.
You might read that passage and want to think Trump did the right thing, but we’ll never know, because, like his taxes and all other financial dealings–the numbers and truth are hidden!
And now back to the current day Coronavirus Crisis being mismanaged by Donald J Trump, the worst president in the history of the United States! God protect us all. Thank God and the Universe the Democrats put language in the new stimulus bill that says we must know where the money is going. (I personally want Elizabeth Warren on this task.)
