While the world toils away, trying to keep far enough apart so that we can starve an invisible monster, there is no rest for critics of President Trump. For them, everything bad that happens in the world is inherently the fault of Donald J. Trump, and, whether we want to hear about it or not, they are going to be shouting it from the rooftops.
This coronavirus crisis is no different. The “resistance” has no pause button.
From the opulent mansions of Beverly Hills, celebrities have been quick to try pinning this catastrophe on the President, perhaps because his response to the virus may very well become the primary issue for many voters and they wish to see him ousted in 2020.
The Trump administration has reportedly opted against re-opening Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov marketplaces for a special enrollment period, with Politico citing an anonymous White House official who said that the administration is “exploring other options.”
But Politico also noted that the Affordable Care Act already allows a special enrollment for people who have lost their workplace health plans, with some states that run their own insurance markets having already re-opened enrollment.
Bette Midler responded to the White House’s decision in a tweet Wednesday, writing that “there is no end to the cruelty and malignancy of @realdDonaldJTrump and his horrifying administration.”
She added: “His overwhelming jealousy of @BarackObama will kill us all.”
Midler’s tweet seems to be aimed at eliciting a response from the President, as a great many liberals seem to believe that Trump is somehow insecure about Barack Obama’s time in office.
Given how busy Trump is, it is doubtful that he’s going to take the bait from someone like Better Midler.
