We have a crazy uncle in charge of Covid-19 pandemic. :lol:


Link
I wouldn't call him uncle even if he gave me a billion dollars tax free. You would expect someone in public service to have higher morals than he has. Now there are no longer any briefings about Covid-19 from the WH. Why? Because its not going to get him re-elected.

Wow, how can we expect the GOP to help the US out of this economic crisis when Senators resort to grade school tactics like making fun of other people's names.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news...but Trump has handled this pandemic in the worst possible way...on a global scale. Yes, China originated this pandemic. China is the cause. Trump took it to a new level and continues to do so. India, Brazil, and Russia trail us...not for lack of information...but for lack of means. They are poor, backward countries...struggling to grasp a breath. I understand and empathize with their dilemma...but America? How has it come to this?!!!

I beg to differ on this point. China is not the cause. The virus originiated in China and quickly spread throughout the world. They may have fed misinformation for a few months but the statement sounds so much like the rhetoric that Trump and his crew is spreading that its the China virus. Let's blame the problems of the world on China... why don't we?

This is funny coming from a University residing in a state where Governor DeSantis home state. Florida wanted 90,000 fans to attend this week's LSU game but the game was cancelled due to an outbreak of Covid-19 among the players and coaches.

Some people follow their leaders too much. They don't take the virus seriously.

It was the Florida Gator coach that was calling for he 90,000 fans last Saturday. In all likelihood a Trump supporter but maybe not a DeSantis supporter.
Last Saturday afternoon, Florida coach Dan Mullen was pushing for his school to allow some 90,000 fans to jam Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville for this week’s matchup with LSU.
DeSantis was the idiot who proclaimed WWE and a essential business way back in April. DeSantis is a lot like he rest of the GOP, just supporting the man.

Okay, sorry I'm not a fan of fake wrestling or Nascar.

There's a kernel of truth in his rhetoric. This rhetoric came about only after Xi didn't help Trump get re-elected. China is the source, but Trump amplified the problem. The fact that Trump knew about this great danger, and yet ignored it, is the crux of the matter. The Woodward tapes, yet again, reveal an American villain. China and Trump are equally to blame. They both spread played this pandemic as self-interested, corrupt politicians would: they down-played it to keep the cash flowing. Shoot, China promotes the killing of exotic animals to cure disease. This is a medieval practice the West abandoned for science some time ago. Xi Jin Ping has made it a criminal offense to criticize traditional Chinese medicine. Well...the Republicans continue to deny science as well. I'm sorry, I see no difference between the Republican/Trump Doo-Dahs and CCP.

Other parts of the world have dealt with this Chinese Communist Party, promulgated pandemic. The United States under the command of Donald Trump has not. China has not. Donald Trump, and Trump alone, is responsible for America leading the world in...stupidity, callousness, and moral ineptitude.

I have refused to teach on-line. It is a terrible medium. I have recently reconnected with a long-term student on-line. His grandma is 98 years-old. Despite this pandemic malady having been eradicated from this country for some time now, his family requested on-line tutoring in respect for their grandma. Thais loves their elderly. I encounter elderly Thais on a daily basis. Who would wish this problem on their beloved elderly? Apparently Xi and Trump do.

I wished she was chosen as running mate long before one was chosen. Stay safe Governor Whitmer along with the rest of the family! You're my hero!
Agreed.

And those terrorist punks should be held with COVID positive, extremely sick patients - with no masks or social distancing.
And still after some extremist threats against the Governor, Trump continues to stir the pot to try to get his political adversaries killed or jailed. Dictator!

Trump is running scared. His bully tactics riles up his base, but for someone trying to enlist the average suburban housewife, this must be terrifying. Support Trump or get kidnapped and killed by his toothless thugs.

Trump is like that fat white dude in a bar that had too much to drink and is complaining about all the troubles in the world because of women, blacks, Mexicans and Chinese. A lot of people just get up and leave, some try to have a conversation trying to drown out his loud talk, some try to pacify him and some actually agree with him and complain about the same thing. It's really a class war not a race war but this drunk in the bar has to have some people listen to him. Too bad this drunk gets a national stage. Brace for second wave of the coronavirus in a couple of weeks as we rely on the inept leadership of the bar drunk.

I couldn't disagree more. Trump is the president by mistake. The idiots who supported him did so by ignoring their ideology in support of an embarrassing Machiavellian ideology. The summation of modern Republicans amounts to the overturn of Roe V. Wade. There isn't anything else. They spend more and pollute more. Republicans complain about deficits, and yet they have contributed the most to America's debt. Donald Trump has contributed to America's debt the most. Continue to build your ineffective wall...continue to promote weird, ineffective antidotes for Covid-19.

This problem goes back to the 2016 election when the Democratic electorate put up the seriously flawed Hillary on the ballot and gave the independents and Hillary haters someone else to vote for. As bad as Trump was, and has since shown to be, Hillary was a far worse option at the time.

I’m sorry I fail to see how Hilary was a “far worse option” at the time. Yeah she had her flaws, but anyone with an ounce of knowledge of government, domestic and international, and Trump’s business acumen knew they weren’t gonna mix well.
