Approaching 300,000 deaths from COVID-19 in the United States of North America.

I accuse the morally repugnant regime.
Repugnant in their hypocritical use of the law.
Repugnant in their vilification of the most vulnerable.
Repugnant in their attacks on science.
They will be expelled and their allies defunded.

"And I think that the marketplace of ideas should have a reasonable,
common-sense Republican Party debating a reasonable, common-sense Democratic
Party. But that is not what we have right now."

"The problem is, is that they’ve been riding this tiger for a long time. They’ve
been feeding their base all kinds of crazy for years"

"Donald Trump, as he’s prone to do, he didn’t build the building himself, but he
just slapped his name on it and took credit for it."

‘They’ve been riding this tiger for a long time’: 
Barack Obama takes aim at Republicans for supporting Donald Trump


“The problem is not that all Republicans think the way he does,” Obama said. 
“The problem is that they’ve been riding this tiger for a long time. 

They’ve been feeding their base all kinds of crazy for years.”

President 45 and his enablers have infected America with hate, lies and distortions.
