Is The Press To Blame For The Elderly’s Blind Faith In President Trump’s Reaction to COVID-19?

What makes a person trustworthy? Perhaps, this is the biggest problem our nation now faces. We are dealing with an outbreak and a leader that cannot be trusted in a traditional sense because he is protected by the very people who are supposed to be impartial. So, how do we as a country move forward without stumbling into the pits of chaos?

These answers are not easy to come by. On one accord trusting him means, buying into the mindset that he’s actually capable of telling the truth. However, on the other hand it also means turning a blind eye to all of the things he’s stated in the past. There’s so much confusion surrounding him and his early reaction to the coronavirus. In many ways, his first reaction is the reaction that will stay with many Americans.

The population that is at risk happens to be the population that offers Trump blind trust. This Sunday as we drove around our city we noticed the largest group that happened to be frequenting the restaurants. They were waiting outside and seen walking to their cars. This group was the elderly, and they are some of the same people echoing the words that Trump spoke months ago.

Many of these people have sworn off news sites other than FOX, and they aren’t shy about it. A worker for the state informed me that many of his clients are Trump supporters and they simply do not believe anything negative about him. So, when sites like FOX news prevents these groups from learning the truth, they place them in imminent danger.

After the president came out and pressed the fact that coronavirus was a real threat; FOX started to change their direction. However, some of us feel like the push was a little too late. By the time they changed direction, the elderly had already endangered themselves. Packing into the Cracker Barrel like sardines was the total opposite of what they were instructed to do on Sunday morning, but it happened never the less.

So, how does President Trump convince this group into trusting that his message is now real and not something pushed by the Democrats? Is it too late to turn that ship around and just how much damage has FOX News done to their reputation? Prior to their coverage of the coronavirus I listened to them on my XM radio. After they continuously downplayed the virus, I replaced them with another news organization.

I always thought news outlets would help to save us in our time of need, I never dreamed they would push some of us into dangerous situations because of their undying loyally to one person. Perhaps, the question of trust should be directed towards the people who are covering the stories pushed by certain figures. I started blogging because I wanted to alert my community and help to educate my community on things they needed to know. News organizations should do that 100 times more.

I Am So Mad Right Now. I Just Want To Cry.

So thus starts the drama for the new school year. My daughter was kicked out of her theater class on the 4th day of school because the teacher seems to have issues teaching children with disabilities. This is my latest letter to the school district.

Ms. Adams,

My daughter attends Temple High School and informed me today that she was removed from her theater class. She stated that the teacher said she would remove children who she felt would not pay attention in her class and Ariana and another student were removed. I find myself concerned due to the fact that last year my daughter was repeatedly paired with children who had disorders similar to her disorder in this class. Instead of the teacher promoting growth, she promoted further confusion due to them not being able to interact with the other students. Often times my daughter would come home in tears because she could not practice lines with her partner due to conflict stemming from the pairing.

My daughter has ADHD, ADD and she struggles with relationships with other students due to an attack that happened four to five years ago while she was on campus. She was attacked by 10 to 11 children when she was in the 5th grade. We have worked very hard with her over the years and theater has always been something she wanted to do. I feel as if she was sectioned off last year and now with her removal from her theater class, I feel like she is being discriminated against because of having a disorder as the other students from last year to some degree.

Now, it is my understanding that she is in another theater class. I need to know if she will be able to learn lines and participate in class? This is a YouTube video to show that my daughter has no issues with being able to use communication. https://youtu.be/fevGVBkPF8o She did a cooking video this summer on making tacos. I will not stand for her being discriminated against because her teacher does not seem to like people with disabilities. It is a violation of her right to not be given the same chance to succeed as other students.

Apparently The other teacher does not really teach theater like the class she was in, so she is being pushed aside.

Why can’t people just be supportive? Why try to teach children if you can’t be supportive of all kids? Does anyone know of any theaters that offer acting lessons in the Austin Area? I support her.

UPDATE 8/27/2019

We were told that the teacher told the administrators that she had an audition to see who was able to stay in the drama class. An audition that my daughter sure didn’t know about. I guess she missed the part about telling the children she would be removing people that she thought wouldn’t pay attention in class. So which was it?
