a fireside chat drafted by Dana Milbank (using Trump's words):

"
The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We have it totally under control. I’m not concerned at all. It’s one person coming in from China. We pretty much shut it down. It will all work out well. We’re in great shape. Doesn’t spread widely at all in the United States because of the early actions that myself and my administration took. There’s a chance it won’t spread. It’s something that we have tremendous control over.

Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away. One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear. Just stay calm. It will go away. The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. This is their new hoax.

Whatever happens, we’re totally prepared. Totally ready. We’re rated number one for being prepared. We are so prepared like we never have been prepared. Taking early intense action, we have seen dramatically fewer cases of the virus in the United States. We’re very much ahead of everything.

This is a flu. I didn’t know people died from the flu. Here, we’re talking about a much smaller range. It is very mild. Some people will have this at a very light level. Some of them go to work.

The mortality rate is much, much better. In my opinion it’s way, way down. I think it’s substantially below 1 percent. A fraction of 1 percent. I think the numbers are going to get progressively better as we go along. This is just my hunch.

We have very little problem in this country. We only have five people. We only have 11 cases. Out of billions of people, 15 people. They’re getting better, and soon they’re all going to be better, hopefully. We’re going very substantially down, not up.

The United States, because of what I did and what the administration did with China, we have 32 deaths at this point. To this point, and because we have had a very strong border policy, we have had 40 deaths. As of this moment, we have 50 deaths. I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be.

Frankly, the testing has been going very smooth. The tests are all perfect. Anybody that wants a test can get a test. The tests are beautiful. We have a tremendous testing setup.

I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. We are very close to a vaccine. A matter of months. You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact? Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. Based on very strong evidence.

I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter. No way I’m going to cancel the convention. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!

We’re the ones that gave the great response. I’d rate it a 10. We’ve done a fantastic job. I think they should be appreciative. Gallup just gave us the highest rating. The highest on record.

I like this stuff. I really get it. Maybe I have a natural ability. We think it’s going to have a very good ending. We’re going to win faster than people think. I hope.

This blindsided the world! Who could have ever predicted a thing like this? This was something that nobody has ever thought could happen to this country.

I’ve always known this is a real, this is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic. I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously.

If you’re talking about the virus, no, that’s not under control for anyplace in the world. I was talking about what we’re doing is under control, but I’m not talking about the virus. I didn’t say Easter. It was just an aspiration. I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE.

So you’re talking about 2.2 million deaths. If we could hold that down...between 100,000 and 200,000, and we all together have done a very good job. START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!! FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!! Invoke “P”. I want our life back again.

It was nobody’s fault. No, just things that happened. I don’t take responsibility at all.

a couple more observations about the idiocy of Trump yesterday

he again was touting chloroquine... noting that in addition to the clinical trials, actual infected people are trying it [clinical trials involve actual people, him remaining unaware despite saying this in ~3 different briefings]... and claiming it can't kill you (which is false)

so, this fucking moron as alleged president is standing before the nation w/ his incredible ratings to inform the public about a pandemic, & he continually gives false information every single time, & yet he keeps being allowed to do it... where is the outrage of every adult in the White House, Congress, etc?

it's just the real media having to correct him (& they don't get to all of it), and all of them are dismissed as fake news by the cultists who only watch the propaganda team at Fox

so... again... absurdly unfit

“if you’re healthy, you and your family, it’s a great time to just go out, go to a local restaurant. Likely you can get in easily." & "go to your local pub"

a snippet from a briefing this week

"
Q Mitch McConnell. Yeah. He said that impeachment diverted the attention of the government. Do you think that, in any way? This was happening and building at the same time. Did it divert your attention or your team’s attention or the Vice President’s attention?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I don’t like to think I did. I think I handled it very well, but I guess it probably did. I mean, I got impeached. I think, you know, I certainly devoted a little time to thinking about it, right?

Q (Inaudible) the pandemic?

THE PRESIDENT: So, but think of it: It was a hoax. It was a total hoax. And when you think that I got impeached only because they had a majority in the House. They didn’t get one — they didn’t get one Republican vote — 196 to nothing. Not one Republican. It’s nev- — I don’t think it’s ever happened. The Republicans stuck together and they stuck together in the Senate — 52 to a half. A half.

So, you know, when you say that — yeah, I think it took a lot of — I see them going and saying about speed. Well, they probably illegally impeached me in the sense that, if you look at the FBI today — with what happened, the horrible things — nobody cares about that now because all they’re thinking about is the virus, and that’s okay with me.

But you look at the report that came out from IG Horowitz; it’s disgraceful what went on. It’s disgraceful. It’s a total disgrace. They got caught in the act. But you know what? We won’t talk about that now. Did it divert my attention? I think I’m getting A-pluses for the way I handled myself during a phony impeachment. Okay? It was a hoax.

But certainly, I guess, I thought of it. And I think I probably acted — I don’t think I would have done any better had I not been impeached. Okay? And I think that’s a great tribute to something; maybe it’s a tribute to me. But I don’t think I would have acted any differently or I don’t think I would have acted any faster.

But the Democrats, their whole — their whole life, their whole being, their whole existence was to try and get me out of office any way they can, even if it was a phony deal. And it was a phony deal. And it turned out — and all you have to do is look today at the FBI reports. Take a look at what the FBI did. Take a look at the people. Take a look at Comey’s report — 78 pages of total kill. Take a look at that. Take a look at the report on McCabe. Just read it and you’ll see how horrible it was. And you know what? I don’t think this country is going to take it, if you want to know the truth.
"

- there was no hoax
- it was not an illegal impeachment
- many R senators agreed what he did was wrong
- the FBI had -NOTHING- to do with it (impeachment was entirely on Ukraine)
- the IG report, nor Comey, nor McCabe, nor any other reports show any corrupt intent against Trump (NONE) ... him using his standard 'take a look at' nonsense as he has no idea


no other adult would continue to spread this total bullshit as alleged president

"I don’t think I would have done any better had I not been impeached. Okay? And I think that’s a great tribute to something; maybe it’s a tribute to me."

Anyway, your chief issue seems to be that you can't handle Trump's personality and speaking style. In that case, maybe just stop listening to him?

He's objectively the best choice in a race in which the other side has been hijacked by socialists and SJWs. He's good for the country, the economy, and your liberties. If you view of him more of an abstract and less as someone who you have to compulsively watch for 20 hours every day, you might have an easier time voting for him this November.

"Show me concrete examples of how the country has ACTUALLY suffered "

since the blob entered the scene:
-trust in FBI (by R's) dropped 20+ points
-trust in media (by R's) i saw one poll again about 20 pts (from 30s to teens)
i'm certain it's dropped for courts(judges)/intel agencies too, why wouldn't it? (not going to spend time hunting for polls)
plus he has & will continue to claim the elections are rigged & full of fraud

these are not positive effects (even for Forwyn, as all his smears are not based on any facts... 100% of them just about making himself look better)

plus he promotes Fox News opinion shows & OAN... actual GARBAGE media

plus he fills the minds of his cultists with other misinformation besides those false smears

yes, he's harming the country... massively

------------------

"the environment is fine dude"

Trump has openly mocked environmental concerns repeatedly, dismisses climate change (even the report by his own admin), is actively seeking higher polluting cars... and appoints EPA-hating energy execs to lead the EPA where they seek soundproof booths to do business.
yes, i'm concerned.

--------------

"Who has Trump actually caused to be put in jail for crossing him? I'll wait for your list. "

you consider this an argument for your side... it's actually a massive embarrassment. The President has repeatedly accused people of crimes & wanted them investigated/arrested & his people just ignore him... they ignore the head of the branch of government that is in charge of enforcing the law.

that shouldn't happen... yet we have an unfit idiot moron dictator child so it simply has to be... military leaders have had to ignore him too. Plus others around him who just hope he forgets he asked them to do something (which isn't just news reports, it's come out in testimony).

also, this coronavirus thing i hear about that Trump can't pronounce

he claims 3x a day every day that he closed the border w/ China (which isn't even true, as usual) but that's all he did... til mid March. At best, he slowed the spread which only bought time, yet he did nothing w/ that time.

"
So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!
"
^ that was March 9... even though kargen will claim it's mind-reading, that's Trump saying the flu is worse & that it would be crazy to shut anything down over this virus

just one of tons of examples of him downplaying virus, plus he contradicted the experts

& he's still repeatedly lying even w/ his 'changed tone'

the bullshit artist claimed that when he was comparing to the flu, he wasn't downplaying it, as some of the worst pandemics have been flus

are any of you fans willing to swallow that obvious bullshit? why do you tolerate it? why do you think he wouldn't lie to you about any & everything? (he would & does, i assure you)

see his tweet above (Sun Apr 05 12:15:24 post) if for some reason you will try to claim he's not a fucking liar

================

and for at least two briefings straight now, he has suggested doctors/nurses take hydroxychloroquine before their shifts to guard against the virus... citing his 'many people are saying' evidence:

"
I just think it’s something — you know the expression, I’ve used it for certain reasons: “What do you have to lose?” What do you have to lose? And a lot of people are saying that when — and are taking it — if you’re a doctor, a nurse, a first responder, a medical person going into hospitals, they say taking it before the fact is good. But what do you have to lose? They say, “Take it.”
"


it's unlikely they would listen... but still shows what a fucking unfit piece of garbage he is... what study has shown it prevents getting the virus? if there was one, he could (& should) cite it, instead we get "a lot of people are saying" which he uses often on made-up bullshit

(plus when a reporter asked Fauci to weigh in on it, Trump stopped him saying Fauci has answered it enough times)

enough R Senators agreed that what Trump did was wrong to have successfully impeached him (but only 1 willing to say it was impeachable)... thus it was not a hoax nor bad case made... it was quite disgusting for Lamar Alexander to say case proven so no witnesses needed, thus Fox News (& Trump) allowed to keep pretending nothing was wrong


one recent example of Trump's garbageness:

Trump: "Will be immediately sending 100 Ventilators to Colorado at the request of Senator Gardner!"

Gardner just happens to be one R Senator at risk this election... you think these two things unrelated? Trump using medical equipment to score political points... he's disgusting (plus he's indicated repeatedly that you should only praise him if you want help from him)

I don’t know why President Obama hasn’t supported Joe Biden a long time ago. There is something he feels is wrong. Why isn’t — he’ll come out. I’m sure he’s got to come out at some point because he certainly doesn’t want to see me for four more years. We’re not — we think a little bit differently.

You know what? I’ll tell you, it does amaze me that President Obama hasn’t supported Sleepy Joe. It just hasn’t happened. When is it going to happen? When is it going to happen? Why isn’t he? He knows something that you don’t know, that I think I know, but you don’t know.

Trump says he trusts China's Xi on coronavirus and the US has it 'totally under control'


PUBLISHED WED, JAN 22 2020 5:01 AM EST

President Donald Trump told CNBC on Wednesday he trusts the information coming out of China on the coronavirus, which has killed nine people and sickened nearly 500 others in that country.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday confirmed the first case in the United States.

"We have it totally under control," Trump told "Squawk Box" co-host Joe Kernen in an interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "It's one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It's going to be just fine."

Getting a Stimulus Check? Trump’s Name Will Be on It

The decision to have Mr. Trump’s name on the checks, a break in protocol, was made by the Treasury Department after Mr. Trump suggested the idea to Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, according to a department official.

The president’s name will appear in the “memo” section of the check because Mr. Trump is not legally authorized to sign such disbursements.

his mental illness far exceeds the typical politician

and why don't you care how often he lies? (& if going w/ 'every politician lies'... NOT SO CONSTANTLY!)

he should have a reason for apparently insisting his name be on the checks

and how fucked up is it that it was ever approved to begin with

if any half-fit president had requested it, the treasury secretary would have noted it's illegal & that would have been the end of it... here either he insisted they find a way, or Mnuchin was too scared to push back that he searched for a means to do it (either way is fucked up)

he needs 5 of the 9 of these for mental illness level narcissism (although that's not his only illness):

- A grandiose logic of self-importance
- A fixation with fantasies of infinite success, control, brilliance, beauty, or idyllic love
- A credence that he or she is extraordinary and exceptional and can only be understood by, or should connect with, other extraordinary or important people or institutions
- A desire for unwarranted admiration
- A sense of entitlement
- Interpersonally oppressive behavior
- No form of empathy
- Resentment of others or a conviction that others are resentful of him or her
- A display of egotistical and conceited behaviors or attitudes


does he fit 5? he fits all 9 w/ tremendous strong powerful scores... more powerful than that powerful hammer that he used more powerfully than anyone can ever know

every politician isn't knocking all of those characteristics out of the park in crystal clear fashion

for the crazy person:

"
Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!
"
~ a Trump tweet on Apr 1 of this year


at the next briefing:

"
Q And do you think tweeting about it will help prevent that from happening —

THE 'PRESIDENT': Yeah, I think it’s — it’s not tweeting. It’s called “social media.” It’s social media. It gets out. I have, you know, hundreds of millions of people. Number one on Facebook. Did you know I was number one on Facebook? I mean, I just found out I’m number one on Facebook. I thought that was very nice for whatever it means.

No, it represents something. And when I can explain to people: Just don’t do it. You know, it’s going to be bad if you do it. It’s going to be really bad. And they don’t need to do it. They have enough problems. Iran has enough problems without doing that.

But we’ve been pulling back very substantially over the last year, in Iraq. And so, you know, that’s the way it is.
"

that's the 'president' confirming his tweet was a direct warning to Iran... although embarrassed to call it tweeting, plus nonsensically claiming (& lying to have just learned) that he's #1 on facebook... w/o knowing what it means (& no one else knows what he means either)... but he's been saying it for months so not just 'learned' (as i have noted before)

...he is such a fucking moron

but anyway, yes, tweets matter... if you maintain your position, please direct me to the official notice that the public should ignore the communication coming from the president that only you seem to know about (& that he would have specifically contradicted, thus you are definitely wrong even if it did exist, which it doesn't, even though many in the White House & other adults who have to defend him probably wish they could issue...)

Nei, det representerer noe. Og når jeg kan forklare for folk at de må bare ikke gjøre det. Du vet, det kommer til å bli ille om du gjør det. Virkelig ille. Og de trenger ikke gjøre det. De har nok problemer. Iran har nok problemer uten at det gjør det.

If Norwegian is unable to adequately convey the gloriousness of the God Emperor's messages, then maybe the language itself is the problem there.

Fortunately that's not a long-term problem. Norway's EF EPI rating is 67.93, which makes Norwegian a redundant language in the long run.
