2. Genocide has a very specific definition

The mass killing of a group of people for a specific reason.

Iím not really sure who Trump would be targeting in this situation. The elderly? Thatís literally his base.

7. No Trump is just stupid

He's a con man without anything else except that he always gets bailed out by greater things than himself. Like his dad or the Russians.

He's a moron. That is clear I don't think a moron is capable of genocide.

8. Even for me, that's a little overblown.

And I would put little past that asshole, and his minions.

10. No, and it's a silly question.

I have nothing but loathing and contempt for the Mango Menace, but genocide has a very specific meaning, and this ain't it.

He's incompetent, arrogant, egotistical, but he's not committing genocide.

12. No. I think he fashions himself a businessman, and he's spitballing that a few million losses

Might be cost effective when compared to the cost of protecting a society. It's a business decision, you understand.

He's that callous. Imagine him as a governor in a state with the death penalty.

13. No, genocide targets a very specific group of people for a very specific reason.

COVID-19 has no specific target. It has no rhyme or reason to what it does. It has no demographic that it is specifically targeting. We're all sitting ducks at this point.

14. No. This is pure incompetence. He's in over his head and won't admit it

and those around him are running around wringing their hands and canít get past all the training that tells them itís bad to openly oppose the president.

16. No.

The definition of genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or part, of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group.

COVID-19 and trump's stupidity aren't the same thing.

17. That seems a little off the deep end

Heís just lazy and short sighted and canít be bothered to have a plan to deal with a crisis. Much easier to try and blame someone else and pretend you are doing a good job. Maybe no one will notice youíre youíre a piece of garbage that doesnít care if people are dying, out of work, losing their business etc.
