    The thing about this exercise is that the virus doesn’t give a shit who votes for who. It won’t be swayed by a President or Governor or Mayor or party who tries to paint a much more bullshit, positive picture than what is actually happening. Unfortunately, it’s glaring when you hear the President speak about it.

    His comments don’t hold water anymore because bullshit lines put up against a rapidly spreading virus dont hold any water. One is a variable and the other is a constant. The virus will continue to spread regardless of Trump’s Reality Distortion Field. Scarily for the President, his base will begin to see this once they start getting infected and dying.

    With Covid-19, he no longer controls the narrative. It’s not “he-said-she-said”, anymore. He tried the whole “Democratic hoax” thing early on but that bit him in the ass about 1.5-2 weeks later. He didn’t think this would be nearly as big as it has become, in my opinion.

    Where’s Dustin Hoffman when you need him, dammit.

    I'm reminded of and old Monty Python skit.

    Match book(box) hurdle. The runner( democrats) run up to the matchbox, realize they don't have enough speed to clear the matchboxes, so they stop , go back to gather more speed, and still knock over the matchboxes.

    I know you guys only believe this site when the facts run your way, but since it's a mixed conclusion I guess nobody is right. Keep bringing it up like a See 'n Say though... it's always amusing.

    Did President Trump Refer to the Coronavirus as a ‘Hoax’?

    The article reiterates what I said. He said, “this is their new hoax”.

    “Their” being the Democrats.


    What was he referring to by “this”?

    I may be naive but I am not sure how the current president or had Hillary won would have really changed much with how the virus is impacting the United States. Its not like a potential global pandemic hasn't been known as a possibility for....well at least my entire lifetime. The limited number of hospital beds, ventilators, N95, drugs, etc could have been taken care of by the Obama, GW, Clinton, HW, Reagan, etc administrations by creating a national stockpile and storing them somewhere. Not like SARs and other diseases occurred sometime recently that our lawmakers should have went "you know what happens if something comes along that is 10 times worse?" We have had Democratic and Republican lawmakers, governors and presidents that had years to prepare for this.

    However they didn't. They were more fixated on the litmus test issues like abortion, war on terror, terrible national health care plans, walls, illegal immigration, trans rights, cutting taxes, increasing spending, RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA, Impeachments, limiting the size of soda, Fake News, Haliburton, etc

    Could we have done more from January to now? Sure but one half of the country was worried about a Democratic primary. The other ripping on the primary. We had discussions of open borders, medicare for all, Tulsi being an Russian operative, gun rights, banning guns, having live birth abortions, etc Plus any action that was done was considered by some as racist. Hell we have people being critical of using the word Chinese when describing this virus.

    Our entire Government have had decades to go over a game plan if we faced a pandemic like this. ALL Have failed. Its not like the majority of the world is failing at this as well. Various governments in place like Socialist Democracies, Communist, Socialist, Capitalist, etc Everybody has failed.

    Just like prior to 9-11 somebody could have said and implemented a policy of having locked doors to the cockpit. Nobody did and it helped with 9-11. Same here. Trump like GW is the one who has to somehow mitigate this mess. Could he do better? Sure. Could be worse? Sure. However this blame goes to the entire government for not being proactive when we had the chance

    Its like in the beginning of WW2. We were not prepared. Lost part of the fleet at Pearl Harbor. Its not like FDR snapped his fingers and we had P-51 Mustangs, Carriers, Hellcats, jeeps, Sherman tanks, and B-29 bombers. It took time to build up the manufacturing sector along with innovation to produce the goods needed to win the war. Due to decades of incompetence by our government, same applies here
