President Donald Trump told CNBC on Wednesday that he trusts the information coming out of China on the coronavirus as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms the first case of it in the United States.

And he never met Lev Parnas, Rudy Giuliani, Michael Cohen or Stormy Daniels.

Well, I feel so much better because Donald Trump tells us "we have it totally under control." What a load!

There was also no injuries from Iran's missile attack until the truth came out.

Unless things have really gotten out so f hand I doubt Trump has a hand in public health responses in the US, let alone around the world.

Trump's a fat slob. He knows absolutely nothing about health care.

#6 yup. Something that was blown out of proportion at the time.

#9 | Posted by jpw at 2020-01-22 05:54 PM

Trump could quarantine people coming from China. For our safety, of course!

You don't sound well. I hope you go see a doctor soon.

Don't worry, folks. Trump knows more than the doctors!

#20 | Posted by Gal_Tuesday at 2020-01-22 11:10 PM

And if there does happen to be a big outbreak somewhere in this country, never fear. Trump will personally show up to hand out paper towels!

Some good background info...

Snakes could be the original source of the new coronavirus outbreak in China
theconversation.com

...Snakes " the Chinese krait and the Chinese cobra " may be the original source of the newly discovered coronavirus that has triggered an outbreak of a deadly infectious respiratory illness in China this winter. ...

Using samples of the virus isolated from patients, scientists in China have determined the genetic code of the virus and used microscopes to photograph it. The pathogen responsible for this pandemic is a new coronavirus. It's in the same family of viruses as the well-known severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), which have killed hundreds of people in the past 17 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) has named the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV.

We are virologists and journal editors and are closely following this outbreak because there are many questions that need to be answered to curb the spread of this public health threat....

This new 2019-nCoV causes similar symptoms to SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. People infected with these coronaviruses suffer a severe inflammatory response.

Unfortunately, there is no approved vaccine or antiviral treatment available for coronavirus infection. A better understanding of the life cycle of 2019-nCoV, including the source of the virus, how it is transmitted and how it replicates are needed to both prevent and treat the disease....


Worth the read if you want to get up to speed ..

Well, if he doesn't say that and says there is danger and then no other cases are reported, Dems would go nuts with conspiracy theories and just rely on spreading more hate about how Trump was wrong. I'd rather hear things are going good because, well, it actually coincides with all scientific data right now. I know Dems only agree with science when it's a topic that the GOP doesn't agree with (and vice versa), which is why this can easily be seen as just more spreading of hate.

@#24 ... just rely on spreading more hate about how Trump was wrong. ...

It is not spreading hate to say that Pres Trump was wrong.

In the majority of the instances, it is stating a fact to say that Pres Trump was wrong.

Even his supporters on this board have told me not to listen to what Pres Trump says because he lies so much.

Never had the Corona virus, but I have had a strong case of the Negra Modelos.

You need help.

What science is telling you everything is going good?
China lied to the WHO to make it look like it was contained. It appears not to be. That's what the Science is saying.

Immortan Don is counting on administering antibiotics to anyone who gets the virus.

Public health announcements are always very touchy things.

The top priority is always to avoid causing a panic. At this point, it's extremely unlikely Trump says anything but "we have it under control".

At this point we more than likely do.

Anybody interested in this who hasn't seen it already I recommend the movie Contagion. It actually does a pretty good job of presenting the topic accurately, although there were a few things that made me laugh.

See, this is the problem when the POTUS is an inveterate liar. NOTHING he says can be taken at face value, so at times when an announcement on a national concern comes from him, people, well normal people, say, "THAT CAN'T BE TRUE", cause everything out of his pie hole is a lie.

The Orange Lard Barge as usual has no idea what he was talking about and just making schitt up on the fly to placate the reporters asking him about it.

He really is the most useless president ever.
