Gov. Jay Inslee: Trump Should Be ‘Removed From Office’

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the governor of the state of Washington describes Trump’s coronavirus denial akin to FDR “saying that Pearl Harbor was a hoax and that the Japanese were going to surrender the next Monday miraculously.”

The pretense of politeness by Democratic governors is collapsing. Many have bitten their tongues the last three months in hopes of not becoming a target of Trump’s revenge in hopes of getting the Federal support as the coronavirus that can turn into the deadly COVID-19 disease.

Democratic governors adopted the strategy of ignoring Trump’s ignorance, incompetence, and dereliction of duty in hopes that their state’s citizens wouldn’t be penalized by their expressing their frustration and contempt for his response to the pandemic.  Keeping Trump mollified was, after all, a life and death decision.

The strategy now five months into the pandemic finds Washington State residents mostly approving the job Governor Jay Inslee has done: His approval rating has soared in recent surveys, clocking in somewhere in the high-60s to mid-70s. While Trump’s approval rating in Washington State is barely tracking at above 38%; he didn’t win the state’s electoral votes in 2016, and it looks like he doesn’t have a snowball's chance in hell of winning them on November 3, 2020.

It’s essential to recognize that Jay Inslee’s state was literally on the front line of this pandemic recording the country’s first coronavirus infection and one of the earliest Covid-19 deaths.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 69-year-old Inslee has some serious problems with Trump and his administration’s response to the pandemic and is no longer holding back. In a feisty interview with Rolling Stone, Inslee singled out President Trump’s “abject lack of leadership” and denial of the science of COVID-19….

 “It’s akin to Franklin Delano Roosevelt on December 8, 1941, and for months thereafter, saying that Pearl Harbor was a hoax, and that the battleships weren’t important, and that the Japanese were going to surrender miraculously the next Monday,” he says. “That’s kind of the scenario we have had from the current president.”

 “I would say that every week as governor, I think every governor, Republican, and Democrat, has run into that crevasse of a lack of leadership, from an early refusal [by Trump] to use the Defense Production Act to an effort to contradict the public-health advice from the president’s own experts, almost on a daily basis, to an effort to try to promote unsafe products. The list goes on and on. It’s been like trying to run a marathon dragging a dead weight every day.”

“I never thought I would live to see the day when an American president would urge American citizens to violate the law. And he did that consciously, willfully, with his sort of dog whistle, asking a person to ignore the laws of Michigan and other states, which puts people’s health in jeopardy. That is unimaginable to me. I’ve had some problems with other presidents, but I never thought I’d see the president stoop to that low level.”

When asked about the most frustrating aspect, Trump’s coronavirus pandemic response Inslee's response was a verbal stiletto…

“What is unfortunate [is] that [the media] also give daily credence to absolute lies that are almost on schedule from the White House, and that is frustrating.

It’s frustrating when the entire medical community says that this is a problem that needs to be dealt with, that it is a serious problem and it’s not going to go away, to have somebody use the bully pulpit to say, “It’ll go away Monday,” and that you can use unproven products, and that testing is overrated.

So it’s frustrating, but we do the best we can, and I think we’ve been considerably successful. The objective review of my public is that the enormous majorities believe that we have been very responsible. I mean, there are majorities approaching 80 percent in my state on these issues, and nationally. You can’t get 80 percent of people to agree the sun rises in the East. So the president has been a really ineffective liar for several months now, and the public just isn’t buying it.

“I would say that every week as governor, I think every governor, Republican and Democrat, has run into that crevasse of a lack of leadership, from an early refusal [by Trump] to use the Defense Production Act to an effort to contradict the public-health advice from the president’s own experts, almost on a daily basis, to an effort to try to promote unsafe products. The list goes on and on. It’s been like trying to run a marathon dragging a dead weight every day.”

About President Trump’s attempt to incite protests and resistance intended to force governors to re-open their states for business prematurely…

“… He urged people to “liberate” themselves from laws that were protecting the public health and asked people effectively to violate those orders of governors that were the law of these respective states. To encourage criminal misconduct is unconscionable, irresponsible, and is a good cause to be removed from office as soon as possible.”

 “I never thought I would live to see the day when an American president would urge American citizens to violate the law. And he did that consciously, willfully, with his sort of dog whistle, asking people to ignore the laws of Michigan and other states, which put people’s health in jeopardy. That is unimaginable to me. I’ve had some problems with other presidents, but I never thought I’d see the president stoop to that low level.”

 

The full interview will appear in the July issue of Rolling Stone. It will include Governor Inslee’s thoughts on why Trump must either be removed from office on November 3, 2020, along with interviews with several other governors about their experiences leading amid the coronavirus pandemic.
