GOP leadership lacks courage to criticize Trump’s performance when it’s needed
It is beyond my comprehension that Republican politicians, including Georgia’s senators, are so afraid of President Trump’s ire they either praise him for everything or sidestep any possibility of criticism. It’s pay obeisance to the king, no matter what. Are they really that gutless? The president lied to the country about the true threat of the coronavirus and pointedly refused to encourage the only known measures to reduce the spread: Wear a mask and social distance. Think how many who died would still be alive today if Trump had set an example by wearing a mask in all public appearances and repeatedly asking people to social-distance. If a new version of John F. Kennedy’s “Profiles in Courage” is ever written, I can tell you now who won’t be in it: Republican politicians.
