Dave Winer makes a very good point about how Trump has handled COVID-19. A competent politician should easily gain re-election in a time of national crisis simply by being a unifying force. The fact that he hasn’t done so is a clear example of his incompetence that Republicans should really be concerned about. As much as we claim we don’t like politicians and think anybody can be President, the basic skills needed for the job in a Democracy is political. You wouldn’t hire a mechanic to fix your car who doesn’t have the experience nor the skills to actually repair the car. Trump is not competent for the position of President of the United States.
