The 2020 Olympics in Tokyo will be postponed due to the coronavirus and likely will not take place until 2021, according to a news report from USA Today. The report quotes a phone interview with International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound who said that while logistics are still being worked out "the Games are not going to start on July 24, that much I know."

OK. I'll bite. What does Trump have to do with this? What is his big failure that caused the Japanese to postpone the summer games?

Actually, I thought it was kind of funny how Bored posted a "hate trump" post in a thread that had nothing to do with him. It's funny how OCTD does that to people. I'm glad you found humor on my calling him out on it. I know many righties did too. Looks like we're all smiling together, snoofy!

Canada was the first country to announce it was not sending a team to Tokyo a day or so ago, to align with its social isolation advice to its citizens.

Trudeau leading by example. Trump flailing incoherently and being contradicted daily by his health experts and now wants to end the pause because he is a coward.

So by announcing that Canada was not sending a team to the Olympics Trump is a villian? Even though 205 other countries (based on 2016 summer games attendance) had not made this announcement? Again, tell me how Trump's actions had any influence (pro or con) on the Japanese decision and provide proof. Or I'll even settle how Trudeau's decision not to send a team influenced the Japanese decision. I only ask for proof because as a OCTD victim, your opinion is obviously worthless.

As I said, OCTD strike deep

Does Trump send you thank you notes for allowing him full and unfettered access to your skull? He should, because he has it an he loves it.

My post did not say Trump is a villian, he is an incompetent.petent lying coward, learn the difference. Strike 1.
The IOC made the decision to postpone not Japan. Remedial reading comprehension might help you. Strike 2.
I enjoy criticizing trampy to draw the inevitable knob polishers that seem compelled to defend him while claiming not to vote for him. Strike 3.

You said he was "flailing", yet fail to provide any evidence of that except a weak and irrelevant "Trudeau..."

I'd still like to hear your reasoning on the "flailing" thing and how either Trump or Trudeau had any influence in Japan's decision.

Thanks!

"I enjoy criticizing trampy to draw the inevitable knob polishers that seem compelled to defend him while claiming not to vote for him. Strike 3."

And I enjoy drawing attention to victims of OCTD. I proved my point. I'll wait for you to prove yours.

It would also be good if you could explain how pointing out that you bring up Trump in a thread in which he is not a player at all makes anyone a "knob polisher".

Again, Thanks!

Would someone please explain to Commisioner Gordon that leaving the Bat Signal running all night costs the taxpayers money?

Thanks.

It aint easy being Bored, I suspect he's out of work, and his sig other really wants him to get out of the house.

I completely banned the Olympics once they chose Sochi. It's a parody and a profiteering scheme nothing less. Whatever it represents now has little to no resemblance to its original concept.

He says "we can't let the cure be worse than the problem" while the number of cases is rising exponentially. That's flailing. He can't "manage" this pandemic so, if it affects economic activity, we are moving towards ignoring it. If Trump was President when the Germans and Japanese attacke the U.S. we'd be speaking Japanese or German right now. When a battle becomes too tiresome just move on and ignore it and it will go away. That's his plan! It isn't part of his agenda so let's just pretend it isn't there no matter what are the consequences. No, that's crazy, what we actually need to do is LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE ON THE FRONT LINES, the healthcare people. They say isolate so we should isolate. We need to keep the numbers of us showing up at ERs to manageable levels and the only way we can do that is to isolate, no matter what Orange Hitler says.
