The “failed” New York Times has produced a video that documents the history of the United States’ pandemic response. It is well worth watching, because it is free of hyperbole and politics. It begins with President George W. Bush in 2005, when he realized we were totally unprepared for a pandemic and takes us through the summer of 2020, and features Barack Obama, Xi Jinping, Angela Merkel, Dick deBlasio, and its principal star, Donald Trump.
If you know anyone who is undecided about how and why 206,000 Americans are now dead, most of whom would still be alive if our leadership had acted responsibly, send it to him or her. You might be instrumental in saving lives. I’ll stop here, because watching the video is a better use of your time than reading my words.
