The proofs are in. Trump’s not incompetent. He knowingly sold out the US people.

I take back every time I assumed that Trump was an idiot. He had all the information. He understood all the information. And he deliberately misled the US people into ignoring the pandemic because he figured that admission of danger would hurt the economy and his reelection.

It also rejects all his accusers who point out that he is a life-long serial failure and incompetent. He could be a success, clearly. But he only cares about his own narrow interest. He doesn’t give a hood about others.

He says to an interviewer on tape, 6 days before the 2020 State of the Union, that he heard from the Chinese dictator that the new coronavirus kills some 5% of the infected in contrast to the regular flu that kills less than 1%, still responsible for ten-thousands of death per year in the US.

He says that all verbatim. He knew the US was heading toward hundreds of thousands of coronavirus deaths and did nothing. By his own admission.

He is a very stable genius. He got it right the first time. He is just a very unwise man. He wanted to model himself after Nixon. Nixon’s downfall was the self-glorifying taping he had organized on automatic pilot. And Trump even gave interviews admitting to all his negligence and deceit?

He’s unwise but not stupid. He was in it for his own glory only. He would not let a stupid virus steal his limelight. We have a word for that. Not crazy, not stupid, not incompetent. The word is evil. He chose to hurt, not protect. And he could because his own glamor meant more than the death of hundreds of thousands of Americans. That’s callous and evil. Not stupid.

He killed more Americans than all wars of the last 100 years combined. Not out of incompetence. Not out of miscalculation. Out of carelessness.

His reign has a lack of truth and care as his tools; choosing evil is its cause.

Veteran reporter Carl Bernstein says that the content of Watergate scandal reporter Bob Woodward’s recorded interviews with Trump is more incriminating than Woodward’s reporting that brought down president Nixon. Carl Bernstein calls Trump’s behavior: proven negligent homicide.

Trump is responsible for many more outrages (undermining the military and rule of law, selling out to Russia, China, betraying the Kurds, etc. But summing that all up makes it so unbelievable that it loses its power. Less is more. The press should go after his deliberate negligent homicide only.

The ‘China virus’ is actually the ‘Trump virus.’

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500th blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry, and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
