There's still a lot of hard core believers of Trump because they will lose their "privilege" if he is not elected. But more chaos will ensue if that happens. Here's Trump at his finest lying about the coronavirus every which way.

What's new for me in this view is that Fauci called Trump "rudderless" in the coronavirus fight and he only wants to get re-elected.
Today Peter Navarro does his dancing act when CNN confronts him on the "Rage" book by Woodward.

More rage.

Kaleigh McEneny is bullshitting. I wonder how you can go home and view the world and say I made the world a better place today. Jean Paul Satre in in book "Nausea" said there are men of good faith and men of bad faith. The majority of the people are men "people" of good faith. There are two types of men of bad faith and the are bastards and cowards. Cowards just follow along and bastards try to change your thinking based on force. Kaleigh McEneny is definitely a "man" of bad faith. Luckily democracy has progressed far enough in this county to prevent things like a holocaust or inquisition. But we may not be too far from it.

This is OT, however it relates to what was said regarding lies by Trump on coronavirus. CNN finds four lies in one sentence.
https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/trump-li ... 02359.html
Lies to get reelected. The "economy" unfortunately will not recover fully from the coronavirus until all parts of the economy has recovered and that includes the housekeeping staff, cooks, bartenders, cocktail servers, etc at Waikiki hotels get back on their feet. They are the ones to suffer not the stock market. Only the rich will benefit from the stock market. Even though a untested vaccine will come out in October. I hope the entire Trump family test the vaccine first.

Oh, a GOP Senator Lindsey Graham wants his opponent's tax returns open to the public? But what about our all mighty king Donald?

Scientific American on Tuesday endorsed Joe Biden, the first presidential endorsement in the magazine’s 175-year history.

Its editors said they felt “compelled” to do so because President Trump’s well-documented rejection of science, from climate change to the coronavirus, has cost tens of thousands of American lives.

“The pandemic would strain any nation and system,” the editors wrote, “but Trump’s rejection of evidence and public health measures have been catastrophic in the U.S. He was warned many times in January and February about the onrushing disease, yet he did not develop a national strategy to provide protective equipment, coronavirus testing or clear health guidelines.

“Trump claimed, falsely, that ‘anybody that wants a test can get a test,’” they continued. “That was untrue in March and remained untrue through the summer. Trump opposed $25 billion for increased testing and tracing that was in a pandemic relief bill as late as July. These lapses accelerated the spread of disease through the country — particularly in highly vulnerable communities that include people of color, where deaths climbed disproportionately to those in the rest of the population.”
The analysis is scathing and A-political. The rest of the article is well worth the read. The evidence is overwhelming.

A recent thread on Sports Hawaii was deleted due to its political content. Essentially, the argument was that Democratic states are responsible for cancelling NCAA football. I live in a country where sport and commerce are alive 'in the bubble'. Our greatest threat is from outsiders bringing the virus. Athletes are infamous for being super-spreaders. Fix the problem and deal with the lack of entertainment.

Of the total of 3,490 cases, 3,316 (95%) had recovered and 116 were in hospitals. The death toll remains at 58 since June 2.

Global Covid-19 cases rose by 278,856 over the past 24 hours to 29.72 million. The worldwide death toll went up by 6,000 to 939,140.

The United States had the most cases at 6.79 million, up by 36,447, followed by India with 5.02 million cases, up by 91,120, and Brazil with 4.38 million, up by 34,755. Thailand ranked 128th.
Deal with the fact that your commander in chief chose to ignore and downplay the pandemic. Republican states that mirrored the president's stance are equally liable.

Maybe they should use more tasteless comparisons and compare the holocaust to the coronavirus. I think the Russians are reveling over the deterioration of American society due to classless leadership. The sad thing is 1 in 5 supporters of Trump in WI and MI are QAnon believers that have told reporters do your research when asked about the conspiracies. I guess the MeidasTouch video regarding Trump and his pedophilia tendencies really questions one of the many QAnon lies being spread by Russian search engines.

Trump blames coronavirus deaths on the "blue states."

Never in my life have I seen such blatant false accusation of politics on deaths. Besides not taking responsibility for anything to do with the problems of coronavirus in the US.

The newly appointed mouthpiece for the president, Dr. Atlas, parroted the president's tired message: the cure cannot be worse than the disease. Well, it seems the that ignoring the disease is worse. Ignorance kills and appointing mouthpieces to parrot your ignorance is heinous.

Nashville ex-council member dies of Covid-19 after declaring it was a political trick to derail Trump's re-election.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ex-na ... d=msedgntp
On May 30, Tenpenny posted on his Facebook a statement falsely attributed former Congressman Trey Gowdy, putting forward conspiracy theories that the virus is noting more than a political trick aimed at derailing Trump's re-election bid.

And on July 7, he wrote that "the CDC and the WHO are pure lying (expletive)" and that those public health bodies are "not telling you the truth."
For me, I'm just trying to figure out where these MAGA hat wearers are coming from.
