The Boston Globe released an editorial three days ago titled “A President Unfit For A Pandemic,” claiming that Donald Trump had “blood on his hands” for the way he handled the novel coronavirus outbreak from the beginning. While we can certainly argue Trump’s handling of the matter, based on the little information the American government had at the time (thanks, China!), what is inarguable is that there were people in power elsewhere who had access to better information and were still telling citizens to go out and have a good time with their fellow citizens.

Among the most guilty, and the one with the most blood on his hands through all this, is New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio.

It is an objective fact that, despite the growing threat to American citizens, de Blasio was urging New York residents to go about their lives as if nothing was wrong. Jim Geraghty at National Review has a great timeline of statements and events in New York  leading to de Blasio’s eventual cave to health officials’ pressure to shut the city down.
