How insensitive! How thoughtless! How inappropriate! How callous!
I am referring to the cartoon by Clay Bennett of the Chattanooga Times Free Press printed in the TimesDaily on March 18.
This guy depicts a person wearing a MAGA cap along with what looks like a World War II gas mask. The association is quite realistic and very inconsiderate, especially given the environment in which we find ourselves.
What Bennett tells me is this: It’s all Donald Trump’s fault. China didn’t cause the Wuhan virus from eating, perhaps, all sorts of animals including dogs. No, Trump caused it by simply trying to make America great again.
Let it be known that China has caused thousands of deaths by the way they handled this situation. Will they be punished? No! We have so many multinational corporations and other entities that depend on China as the main source of their revenue.
With that said, Bennett should come up with another cartoon that depicts how strong the American economy is behind the scenes.
America has the best doctors, nurses, hospitals, companies, etc., that are working together to mitigate the effects of this virus. Pretty soon, we will be on the other side of the V-curve and stronger than ever.
The actions of the cartoonist cast doubt on or uncertainty upon the aforementioned people and companies who are doing their best to alleviate the Wuhan virus.
