COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

     Sanders sounds and looks like a madman.   Democratic presidential frontrunner Sen. Bernard Sanders on Thursday accused President Trump  of botching the response to the coronavirus outbreak, calling it “inadequate, misleading and dangerous.” Mr. Sanders said every step taken by Mr. Trump  was wrong and offered his prescription to fend off the potentially deadly virus.


     He disagreed with Mr. Trump’s decision to put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the administration’s response. “By picking Vice President Mike Pence to lead the administration’s response to the pandemic, Trump has not only chosen someone completely unqualified, but the president has made clear that he’s more concerned about his own politics than the health and safety of the country,” said Mr. Sanders, a senator from Vermont who is an avowed socialist.us. Mr. Sanders said that if he were president he would not “play politics with our health and national security.”

     He joined other top Democratic officials, including Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, in attacking Mr. Trump’s moves to deal with the disease.
