With so much happening during this critical year for social, economic, and political engagement and empowering; it sometimes feels like we're sleepwalking to an uncertain end. This country is in a National Pandemic, every state in the land is affected and impacted by the Coronavirus. And yet, this White House has become so negligent and careless in their handling of this Pandemic that no one can ever say or suggest that this White House has ever LEAD this country in any meaningful manner when they tell the American people, we don’t need to test everyone, and the states are responsible for bidding and ordering their own ventilators, masks, and protective gear. And then you have Jared Kushner, saying things like this, “The notion of the federal stockpile it’s supposed to be our stockpile it’s not supposed to be states stockpile that they then use…”
This White House felt the virus was a national emergency, so they declared a national emergency, and yet they have not addressed the national need. Donald Trump has called this a War, and yet he hasn’t implemented or enforced the Defense Production Act or anything else that should be done if we were in an actual War. If we are in a war, you don’t leave it to each individual state to fight the enemy in its own way. You do so on a national scale, not a local or state one.
This Administration for the past three years has thrown so much at the American people I think that some, just like the folks in this administration, are Sleepwalking their way through it all hoping that when they wake up it will be all gone. The problem with that type of thinking, is when will they wake up?
My guests tonight join me to help wake up those who are still sleepwalking through America, is Alabama Senator Rodger Smitherman, Dr. Pamela Pugh, and Ms. Angela Jones Hackley.
