Trump Biographer Completely Explains Why President Is MIA on COVID and Russian Hack

President Donald Trump’s biographer Tim O’Brien wrote TrumpNation. The 2005 story describes what it’s like to be the larger-than-life character who “spends most evenings at home watching TV and chewing oreos”. However, in a recent Bloomberg column, O’Brien stated that the United States would be spending a very long time grappling with the aftermath of his presidency.

“Nothing in his past prepared him for the presidency or effective management of a bureaucracy as complex, influential, and extensive as the federal government,” wrote O’Brien.

“I know how to fix it,” proclaimed Trump notoriously. “I alone can fix it.”

O’Brien called it “a hollow proposition four years ago, and it continues to this day when Trump finished his last month in office. It is also unfortunate that two main examples of Trump’s ineptitude landed in full force over the past week. They are a reminder of the devastating consequences of living with a president who has no interest in putting his shoulder behind the wheel so that he can manage the affairs of the country competently. “

His failures in introducing the COVID-19 vaccine should come as no surprise, as Trump subscribed to the “herd immunity” theory to cure the virus. The president seems to be more focused on paying tribute to the vaccine than distributing it.

While Operation Warp Speed ​​contributed to rapid vaccination, O’Brien said, “There is reason to believe that the government is poorly managing distribution.”

There are already problems. Some states were promised doses only to find out what they were getting was less than expected. There is a lot of relief, but also a lot of confusion. Where’s President Trump? He seems to be tweeting and watching a lot of Fox News.

The second example of Trump’s failure in office is the recent announcement that Russia has hacked the US government again and the president has suspected that it is likely China and not Russia. His government made it clear that he was wrong. Even that comment took a week to start talking about the cyberattack.

“Perhaps part of this can be attributed to the fact that Trump’s repeated indulgence and inducement to Russian President Vladimir Putin had visible and adverse consequences, including this recent cyberattack,” said O’Brien. “Trump is not the one to acknowledge that his dances with dictators were not really under his control. Perhaps he also realizes that he and his government slept at the counter for months while federal networks were fleeing, and he is not one to acknowledge such a mistake. “

O’Brien said that while these are some of the reasons Trump was disinterested, another is that he just doesn’t care. It doesn’t matter what he does, how many lawsuits there are or angry tweets in the Supreme Court; He’ll be gone on January 20th.

“As surprised as anyone that he won the 2016 election, he immediately relied on others to run the government for him and never bothered with the responsibilities associated with the occupation of the White House,” recalls O’Brien.

In the end, it isn’t Trump’s incompetence that will haunt him, and it will likely haunt America for generations, he concluded.
