Trump Is Fiddling While America Is Burning

Thom plus logo This morning, Trump retweeted a picture of himself playing a violin. Seriously. It's like he's trying to tell us in the most obvious way possible that he doesn't give a damn if America burns to the ground. He also doesn't want people rescued from an infected cruise ship because it he "likes the numbers where they are" and shouldn't go up because of "something that's not our fault."

Trump doesn't give a damn about you and me, and only would if we inherited a fortune and could buy one of his condos. Then we could join Mar-A-Lago and become one of his policy advisors, like the three guys there who are running the VA with absolutely no oversight or way to be held responsible for the outcome. Seriously - there are three guys down there, none of them veterans, running the VA. You can google it. America is on fire and our leader is fiddling. What could possibly go wrong?

I can see Trump acting as Nero while Rome burns, but I was surprised when he said something would be done to help those who must go to work or starve should they contract the virus. I am 61 with a pacemaker and scarred lungs, I definitely fit the profile with the virus and expect to be down and out for a time if I get it.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
