Mumia Abu-Jamal

“Mad As Hell.”

The hospitalization of an American president is a story that pierces every other story in the media, and Trump has played it like he’s on Broadway. I can hardly count the guys who’ve insisted that this is a hoax, that Trump wasn’t really sick. I may disagree. But it changes nothing, for he’s a man who’s hard to believe.

Around him, almost a dozen people have fallen ill because of the Coronavirus. The United States is a wash in COVID-19, and it ain’t getting any better. In parts once low in the virus, we’ve now seen spikes. Trump has ignored it, downplayed it, and likened it to the flu. Donwnplay it all you want, but this thing is real.

And that doesn’t mean that this nation isn’t sick and getting sicker. Getting through this virus will take time.

From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
