I had held out hope that some Republican Governors

Would say enough is enough and start pointing fingers. DeWine, Baker, Hogan somebody. These Governors early on did the right thing for their states. Why will they not do the right thing for the country? I think if one has enough courage to call Trump a liar others will become emboldened. The only thing that will end the madness is for Republicans to grow a pair. Is there no one in the Republican party willing to tell the truth or do the right thing?

3. because they are in a fight to save lives and secure resources

I live in Vermont. My Gov. has been openly critical of Trump. Many times. He doesn't like him. He supported impeachment. He endorsed Bill Weld.

But we're a tiny state with few hospital resources. Scott is trying to save lives right now.

I understand your anger. But I honestly don't want Scott picking a fight with trump right now. We're too small and the consequences are too great. (imho)

4. I get this fact and loyalty should go to the state citizens

But this doesn't stop at a state border. This is our fucking nation.

5. deWine called out Trump over the mask sterilizer company whose FDA approval was slow walked

Honestly, I think all governors have their hands full with immediate issues and they know neither Trump or the hard core MAGAts care. The people who want facts are already tuned in and can see Trump for what he is. They rest will have to learn the hard way.

7. I hope my Governor will...

continue to do his job, which has nothing to do with the 'right thing for the country'....but, the next time he makes comments that include Trump, I'll alert the media...and the shit-show can commence.
