After watching the coverage of the horrifying desecration of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, it is clear to me that President Donald Trump is nothing but a coward and a thug. The so-called rally was, in my view, a planning meeting for the ensuing riot by his goon squad.
Since I have no training in the law, I cannot say whether Trump is legally responsible for the deaths resulting from the riot. But it is obvious that he bears a moral responsibility for those deaths.
The enduring legacy of the man who I believe completely mishandled the COVID-19 response is now his incitement of the riot at the Capitol and then his slithering back to the safety of his residence.
I hope he will be prevented from inflicting any more damage prior to the inauguration of President-elect Joseph Biden on Jan. 20.
