MeidasTouch ad of trump tape w/Woodward. Admits it's not just older people. admits he played it down



Trump admitted on tape to Bob Woodward that he played down the threat of coronavirus. Share this far and wide. #TrumpKnew


"I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down. Because I don't want to create a panic."


Uhh....panic? It was already spreading to multiple countries who WERE dealing with it properly and NOT ignoring it and they didn't panic!

1. Yet, just as recently as the past couple of weeks, he's pushing schools reopening.

15. And having rallies with no masks. More than "not causing a panic"

Donít know what.

3. Damn, I hadn't even finished posting this in LBN and there's the money quote...



Ultimately, Trump's handlers will play this as a positive...

As in, he didn't want mass hysteria in the face of a deadly pandemic. He was operating in the public's interest.

Just watch, we'll be hearing that from all of the official propaganda outlets before the day is over.

I no longer consider Bob Woodward to be any sort of ally and I haven't for some time.

8. There is a huge gap between downplaying it to avoid mass hysteria

and totally discredit and reject any COVID reality.

Just like there is a huge gap between closing down for months and opening the economy or school as if COVID isn't happening. You could open when the spread rate is in an acceptable range and be flexible and close down again when rate spikes while having all of the preventive steps such as social distancing and wearing mask.

9. Yes, and as a caring, thinking, and empathetic human being you realize the distinction.

However, many won't. All they'll hear is good things about their glorious leader.

And, they'll cheer.

14. Not to mention stealing PPE and tests from the states...

And the national stockpile. The obstruct goes beyond that but these facts seem to fall by the wayside a lot.

5. Translation: Panic in the stock market and panic in the work place.

With him it is always about money.

7. I'm sure my brother will take comfort in that explanation, remembering how he fought to breathe

He was lucky - his symptoms never reached catastrophic levels, but he was as sick as he's ever been, in his life, for a good 3 weeks.
