This remarkable construction deserves closer analysis, but first it’s worth understanding the context. Trump infamously described Putin as a “genius” for massing troops on Ukraine’s border. He has repeatedly declined efforts by allies such as Sean Hannity to coax him into condemning the invasion.

His official statements have followed a handful of familiar themes. Russia’s invasion is Joe Biden’s fault (“Putin is playing Biden like a drum!”). Trump strengthened NATO (“I hope everyone is able to remember that it was me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues, which amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars”).

But the most peculiar aspect is Trump’s habit of using the passive voice. That is not a construction he employs frequently, but in this case, it serves his purpose of presenting Russia’s invasion as if it were a natural disaster — a tragedy that occurred naturally with no author or source of blame. He has used this device repeatedly.

February 22: “If properly handled, there was absolutely no reason that the situation currently happening in Ukraine should have happened at all.”

February 24: “If I were in Office, this deadly Ukraine situation would never have happened!”

March 1: “The RINOs, Warmongers, and Fake News continue to blatantly lie and misrepresent my remarks on Putin because they know this terrible war being waged against Ukraine would have never happened under my watch … There should be no war waging now in Ukraine, and it is terrible for humanity that Biden, NATO, and the West have failed so terribly in allowing it to start.”

March 15: “Now with what’s going on with Russia and Ukraine, among many other things, the great and wonderful people of Hungary need the continued strong leadership of Prime Minister Viktor Orban more than ever.” (Note that, among the NATO countries, Orbán has taken a uniquely pro-Russia stance. So Trump’s argument that “what’s going on with Russia and Ukraine” makes his election more important directly implies that Orbán’s refusal to support NATO’s response to the invasion makes him more valuable.)

Only once did Trump use an active-voice construction to identify Russia as the aggressor (“If the Election wasn’t Rigged … Russia would not have attacked Ukraine”). On every other occasion, he has relied on verbal contortions to mask its author.

Other Republican leaders have used direct language to describe the invasion. Mitch McConnell (“Putin’s initial aggression was just a small foretaste of what this thug had planned for Ukraine. Now we are watching his full brutality unfold”) and Kevin McCarthy (“Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is reckless and evil. The United States stands with the people of Ukraine and prays for their safety and resolve. Putin’s actions must be met with serious consequence”) have not felt the need to dance around Putin’s culpability.

Trump’s latest statement goes beyond this familiar passive voice and wonders openly why both countries have failed to settle their differences. “It doesn’t make sense that Russia and Ukraine aren’t sitting down and working out some kind of an agreement,” he muses, which would be true if you were starting from the premise that neither country intended to destroy the other. If you begin with the premise that Russia set out to subjugate its neighbor and Ukraine merely wishes to coexist peacefully, then the lack of diplomatic progress makes perfect sense.

Not long ago, Donald Trump tweeted “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” In a followup tweet he specifically referenced the “Second Amendment.” His deranged supporters apparently heard him loud and clear, because on Thursday they grabbed their assault rifles and stormed the Michigan state capitol building, under the guise of “protest.”

These people are domestic terrorists. The only reason they’re even still alive is that they’re white; otherwise law enforcement would have given them one warning and then shot them. Donald Trump is directly responsible for this domestic terrorist incident in Michigan. We’re all lucky that no one died in the incident. But in a month where Trump has already negligently gotten fifty-something thousand Americans murdered, that’s a small mercy.

For some reason, perhaps only because there was no body count, this Michigan domestic terrorist incident isn’t being clearly linked to Donald Trump’s tweet. As of yet there’s no mainstream media narrative demanding that he answer for the incident. Like the coward that he is, he won’t address it unless he’s forced to.

“'[Fauci] didn’t want to hang his hat on this, but it looked to him like we’re a week-ish behind New York,’ New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said at his daily press briefing, adding that the projection is generally in line with what New Jersey state officials are expecting.” And that’s just New Jersey.

Trump is dangerous.

As of writing this, five states still do not have any stay-at-home orders. Notably, since just March 30th, a staggering twenty states had either partial stay-at-home orders or none at all. A week before that, just 9 did. The response to the COVID-19 epidemic has been slow, botched, and feeble here in the US. I’m afraid we’re going to see catastrophic loss because of that.

But I want to draw your attention to what I think is a timebomb — the South. New England, the Midwest, and the West Coast have some of the best hospitals and healthcare in the country. By contrast, the South — where some of the worst delays in pandemic action took place — has some of the worst healthcare in the country. The combination of a delayed response and poor healthcare will almost certainly be felt in the coming weeks.

On top of this, the South has, generally speaking, the worst health in the country. In addition, obesity in America is most concentrated in the Midwest and South, and doctors are saying that obese coronavirus patients are at a heightened risk of dying.

It’s important to vote for Joe Biden, a real adult.

Now, 8 of the 10 coronavirus hotspots are in the south. Taken together, we’re looking at a relatively unprotected populace with some of the worst general health in the nation living in a region with some of the worst healthcare in the nation. I fear a tragedy is pending.

Before I get into the implications of this for the nation at large, I would like to say that if you can, donating to those less fortunate in this time makes a big difference — bigger than usual. You might not agree with the politics of the South, but the people there deserve the same chance at making it through this pandemic as much as anybody else.

The potential impact of COVID-19 in the South is grim. The latest projections of deaths from the virus in the US top out at 240,000, but given everything I’ve just said, I suspect this number will rise. We may see small rural communities fall apart because of the poor economy — if not because of illness. We may see people too afraid to leave the house to vote, which would be a serious blow to a part of the US where there are already significant roadblocks to voting. We may see further disintegration of already dwindling cultures, like the Cajuns of Louisiana, or the Seminoles in Oklahoma and Florida.

My message is this: prepare for bad news ahead. There will be heartbreak. Some parts of the country will be hit much harder than others. Remind others how bad leadership got us here and let these things inform you as to how you vote in November.
