Trumps scoreboard mentality- he is losing
Today he held a pep rally lowering the bar for victory at somewhere below 200,000 deaths.
So he blew his first call when we had one confirmed case of corona virus, it is contained
Next blown move was a couple of days later when it was 15 which would be near zero in a couple of days
He was told today to expect 100,000 to 200,000. So he chooses 200k as the bar which is obviously a loss, but if he beats 200k then he has covered the spread...
so he asked the worlds greatest experts what would it have been if he had not acted at all and the response was 2.2 million deaths.....which is like saying yes I lost but at least I showed up and did better than Hillary could have
This will just be starting to die down in July, And likely safe to get out the Vote in November.
He has been entirely too lucky, but I cant see him pulling this one out....even if fish tank clearer starts working
This is the time to invoke the 25th amendment. When a president directly through his own neglect and stupidity, causes the deaths of Americans, he should be removed from office.
this by numerous Mental Health Professionals Psychiatrists and Psychologists that is he our biggest threat, he is a threat to himself and others.
He is criminally psychotic. Has been for a very long time. Way past the time to invoke the 25th. These are dangerous times.
But he is loosing it mentally. Calling a reporter "cutie pie"? verbally going after the Woman PBS reporter, accusing Drs and Nurses of stealing??? He needs to go now, he is killing Americans and does not care.
Which is now full of acting cabinet members that are unqualified yes men.
We are 8 months away from Election Day, Trump is his own worst enemy. Just ride the wave, and make Joe pledge to make Robert DeNiro the attorney general so that Trump lives the rest of his life in prison.
... assuming social distancing continues vs. "back to business as usual."
What I wan't to see is a model of projected cases/deaths, if they had not lost the first 7 critical weeks to obstruction and incompetence. It's the comparison of those estimates to how things play out given the lost opportunity to contain that Americans should hear about.
If the United States has the most infected and the most deaths of all countries which we will have?
It doesnt mater what he did to restrict Chinese nationals from traveling or closing flights from Italy after the disease had spread throughout Europe.
Nothing he did maters because it didnt work! Whatever he did is worse than any nation on earth including the most populous China.
Our population is about 5.5 times that of Italy. Italy has already suffered over 10,000 deaths. Tragically, Italy will see more death before they reach the end of this. If we assume they are at, or near, the "apex" of the curve, they are likely to lose as many people on the "downward side" as they did on the "upward side," or total of 20,000 loves ones lost (equivalent to 110,000 loves ones lost here).
If the effect of strong social distancing and precautions keeps numbers here within the currently projected range of about 40,0000 to 160,000, the US is not going to be the world's example of the worst outcome. It is even possible that heroic efforts on the part of some states could keep the numbers on the low end -- and may we ALL hope that is still possible.
However things play out, the fact is, we SHOULD have served as an example of the BEST management, or at least be up there near the top of the list when all is said and done. We know that will not be the case.
I want to know what the projections would be if we had acted as soon as there was a test on 1/13, if things had played out as they could have/should have, I think the 7 weeks of obstruction and incompetence is going to cost tens of thousands of lives, but right now, I have nothing to base that on because I haven't seen any projections of "what could have been" if our government had done the right thing.
