14. Progression


First their position was "just 15 cases. In a few days it will be 2 or 3 and then it will magically disappear".

That switched to "We did all we needed to do, banned Chinese flights."

Then it was "just an ordinary flu, 10 dead versus 20,000 flu deaths".

A little later it was "just 10 dead besides all those in the nursing homes in Washington state".

That became a Public Relations exercise to tweet it away and stage photo ops where he could self-congratulate and pretend to be doing something while denying it was a problem.

Then the "It's Democrat{ic} Media hoax panic to crash the markets to get rid of Trump because impeachment failed" ploy.

Then it was named with a racist origin name (by naming after the originating area) or the "foreign flu" as if being from out of the country made it impotent.

Then it was "I know! We can break SSI and Medicare by defunding via a payroll tax holiday."

32. None so blind as those who will not see.

I know that's a tired saying, but true nonetheless. A woman I work with who is a raging republican, is convinced this is all some kinda democrat trick to smear this president. I shit you not. She actually had a magazine photo of Michelle Obama who had a pucker in her dress which she claimed was her penis. Honest to God. My head hurts when I think of the sick "climb up a tree to believe a lie" when she coulda stood there on the truth. She's a hair stylist, and her customers are every bit as dug in. **Regarding Michelle's "penis", I asked her why would it matter if it were indeed a penis**WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD IT MAKE????? The stupid is gonna do us in.

like in 2014 elections.

they were stupid enough not to see the difference between ebola, which would be a lot more controllable for them and could be easier to scare with. a simple scare. this is way out of their league, the dumbfucks

37. I dunno. I think the question was a loaded one about leadership.

A true leader, as Lawrence O'Dpnnell noted last night, would have answered with something along the lines of: "This situation is way too serious to talk about who scored the highest. It's critical that we focus on the virus and ways to mitigate it and keep all our people safe."

A faux leader, a self-centered failure as a man, would take the bait and claim he'd done a perfect job when the entire world knows he stumbled and failed.

So Trump, being an asshole, rated himself a perfect 10 and thus gained the justified derision of the media and the world.

21. Trump doesn't really govern, he just runs a corporate PR plan to make it appear he's governing

At the root is that government and business are two different things. Business focuses on profit. Government focuses on the common good. Trump is still focusing on profit, on minimizing taxes for wealthy people.

I think he fires people because Obama put them there or they do not kiss his ass and then he is just too damn lazy to replace them. After all, Fox news has to be watched and tweets have to be sent. Then it is time to fly south for golf. That is pretty much all he does.

33. Maybe it's because he lies all the time. Trump NEVER provides proof of any of his declarations.

That's because wants to exist only on his bullshit. He's a con artist. He never backs up anything he says. NEVER. He insists on everyone believing him and trusting him when he gives no reason for anyone to do so. In order to join him, everyone must suspend their critical thinking skills and trust him implicitly. That's so he can lie and steal while everyone's watching. And that's exactly what he's doing right now, and he's been doing it every day he's been in office, from the very beginning until right now.

The Constitution grants the President to suspend habeas corpus during foreign invasion or insurrection. That's it.
Federal elections cannot be suspended or rescheduled without an act of Congress. Do you think Madam speaker would ever consent to that?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/03/17/trump-learns-pitfalls-his-pinocchio-presidency/
“Pinocchio Presidency!” That’s exactly what it IS!!!

Since 45* has admitted, in public, that he always knew that this was a pandemic, are there any legal ramifications for his inaction over the last 2 1/2 months? Serious question.

Trump fired the team that could have helped stop the coronavirus crisis

The willful and complete neglect of a national emergency by elected officials should carry criminal charges. The buck stops with the traitor. He is responsible for all deaths that result from his dereliction of duty. What does it take to permanently remove this traitor now? We shouldn’t have to wait until November.

55. I know, I know - the answer is "he had to profit from it".

That is the real answer and why our response was 9 weeks too late and too little. drumpf chose Jared's brothers failing co. that had 16 ee and lost over $200,000. last year alone. That is why this is so bad, he had no issue waiting 9 weeks to send out tests, and then they were defective - just so he could make money and he didn't give one damn about the rest of us. He also tried to buy the German co to produce vaccines at outrageous prices and again profit from it himself. That is why we are so fucked! He also didn't want the tests widely given and I think to this day he's lying about tests getting sent because he doesn't want us tested. He wants us sick & panicked so he can get through bills destroying our economy but helping the rich. He doesn't care about the people, that's for others, he just wants the personal profits and destruction of our way of life - for his PUtin & the oligarchs' sake.
