Donald’s chaos is producing predictable results.
Every day he stirs the pot. His chaos makes it difficult to save American lives and jobs.
On February 7, 2020, Donald privately confessed the truth to Bob Woodward. His confession was recorded for the entire world to hear.
“It goes through air Bob. You know, the touch, you don’t have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed. And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus… This is more deadly five per, this is five percent versus one percent and less than one percent. You know so, this is deadly stuff.”
Covid 19 is deadly stuff. On April 13 Donald said, “This thing is a killer if it gets you. If you’re the wrong person, you don’t have a chance.”
Donald chose to lie. Mike Pence choose to cover up the lie. Texan John Cornyn sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Coryn failed to defend America.
Donald and Corny left America defenseless. Covid 19 is deadlier than September 11. Covid 19 has killed more Americans than the war in Vietnam. Covid 19 has killed 200,000 Americans on our own soil. 200,000 more Americans will die by the end of the year. It will be deadly than WWII.
Donald knew. Donald lied to the American public, and the Republican Party followed. At every level of our government Republicans shake in fear of a Trump Tweet. They are scared to tell the truth.
What happened when Democrats tried to raise the alarm? Like Paul Revere, they warned “Covid is coming.” Donald dismissed the alarm as the Democrat’s “new hoax”.
Parents and grandparents are dying.
Doctors and nurses are dying. Teachers and custodians are dying. Covid 19 is the number one cause of death for police this year. The truth is not a hoax.
Donald lied. He said we could go to church by Easter. He and John Cornyn knew better. What if Americans had followed this lie? How many more would have died by listening to this false prophet?
What if they had simply told the truth? How much division, discord and chaos do lies create? Would we have the rapid testing to remove uncertainty? Would we have the deadly arguments about masks?
What if the President of the United States of America told us, the American people, the truth. Covid 19 is a deadly virus transmitted by air. Every time we breathe in and out we risk infecting others and ourselves. “If you’re the wrong person, you don’t have a chance.”
Donald knew. He chose to lie. Wear your mask. Love your neighbor as yourself. Are you the right person?
Grayson County Democratic Chair and the SDEC 30 Committee Man
As an “Army Brat” Glenn Melançon [pronounced Mel-LAWN-sawn] learned the value of public service. He was born in Heidelberg, Germany, on January 24, 1966, and is the youngest of four children. His parents, Yves “Buster” and Anna Mae Melançon, had committed to a career in the US military, Buster as a combat engineer and Anna Mae as a military wife. Their sacrifices and examples provided the foundation for Glenn’s firm belief that serving others can make the world better one day at a time.
Glenn and his wife Jackie moved to Sherman in 1995 after he completed a Ph.D. in History from Louisiana State University. He had accepted an appointment to teach history at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, while Jackie became a special education teacher at Denison ISD. They are proud of their two sons, Christopher and Alexandre. Christopher is following in his grandfather’s footsteps as a combat engineer. Alex attended Sherman High School where he enjoyed soccer and the University of Louisiana–Lafayette. He is now a proud member of the United States Airforce. While Glenn advanced in rank to become a Full Professor in July 2005, he made time to serve the local community. He served as the Cubmaster and Committee Chair for Pack 9, Wakefield Elementary School. He is also a volunteer at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
