Conservative columnist Max Boot envisioned World War II taking a really various turn in his most current column for The Washington Post released Friday.
Spoiler alert: Not well for the Allies.
Boot, who left the GOP in direct action to Trump’s 2016 election success, visualized the “Trumpy FDR” losing interest soon into the war, then too soon stating success, hyping a “death ray,” grumbling about rationing and curfews and eventually holding rallies to rebuke his predecessor.
“If FDR had taken Trump’s approach, this column would be in German,” concluded Boot, who stated it is “no surprise” that Trump has “already gotten bored with a war against the coronavirus that isn’t going his way.”
Fortunately, Boot kept in mind, “Roosevelt focused with single-minded devotion on defeating the United States’ enemies until the day of his death.”
