Why is it so hard for Democrats to understand that the Constitution doesn't allow a President to dictate COVID rules to Governors?

You complain about the lack of a national mandate out of one side of your mouths and call him a dictator out of the other. Apparently not realizing they are polar opposites. This is why Conservatives say you can't think for yourselves.

And then you ignore this:

Update:

Kare, Fauci said that. Another example of how you can't think for yourself.

Update 2:

Anonymous, like the smarter Anonymous said, this is the United States not the Country of America. The President cannot dictate to the States. THAT IS THE REASON FOR THE BILL OF RIGHTS. So you ignorant ldiots, please take a Civics class or stfu.

Update 3:

See Liberty University.

    Trump's science team gave daily updates on the status of the virus for months.  This team also sent guidelines to the governors of the states.  Even the governors don't have the right to criminalize those who don't wear masks, etc.  The president would have to declare martial law and then would not be able to enforce it.  In Europe some countries are making people quarantine in "camps" for 14 days if they refuse to take a test or if they are caught breaking the rules.  People are going nuts over it.  We don't want that here.  By the way, the virus is back in record numbers in Europe again.

    True but Trump could have

    1) Mandated masks in and around all government facilities 

    2) Strongly recommend a mask mandate 

    3) Threaten to withhold federal funding like he did for other things

    4) Used the power of the office to convince the people

     He did NONE of them

    In fact he refused to do any

    Plus he could have pressured Congress to pass a mask mandate which would be legal

    Why don't trumpies understand there is no good reason not to wear a mask. We're all in this together. Why are trumpies so selfish they don't want to help America end this problem. Why do trumpies consider it a political issue instead of the major health issue it is, never mind, I know the answer to that, because of trump. I have emphysema and I still wear a mask in public.

    Why is it so hard for trump supporters to realize Americans aren't stupid? trump LIED about the virus, told us it wasn't dangerous. He said it would miraculously disappear, he discouraged wearing masks.

    trump had a chance to do the right thing. He didn't and lied to us instead. You're ok with that but those of us who are smart, aren't.

    They still don't understand why we're called the United States and not the country of America.

    Why can't you understand the President of the United States is responsible for the U.S. response to a pandemic!

    I bet you would say he was if you didn't like that President.
