Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 27, 2020

Medical professionals around the US told BuzzFeed News that the official numbers of people who have died of COVID-19 are not consistent with the number of deaths they're seeing on the front lines.

They want to keep numbers and panic down. They will lie to do this. Trump has no respect for the truth.
By extension neither does the gov.

You mean the same guy who lies about job numbers, his inauguration size and almost everything else is lying again.

I'm shocked!

These people are dying just to hurt Trump's chances of re-election. Lame!

Yeah, hashtagging this isn't politicizing death at all.

People are going to die regardless, but Trump bears some responsibility for the increased the number of deaths. His disregard of government pandemic plans before the virus hit. His slow response after the virus hit. His plan to get us all back to work before the pandemic is over will increase the death rate even higher. It is political.

Politician: *does something dumb that causes people to die*

Other people: "Hey that politician did a dumb thing, we should hold him accountable for that."

ROC: "Stop politicizing their deaths!!!!! Waaahhh!"

Like, any time a politician does something that causes people to die, we can't talk about it?

Was opposition to Obama drone strikes "politicizing" the deaths of the victims?

Can we ever raise awareness and discuss when a politician causes death or is that always off limits?

Trumpers are politicizing this issue by not holding Trump accountable for the lack of preparation or ability for health infrastructure to respond.

Numerous warnings and plans went ignored. Agencies focusing on the inevitability of this issue were gutted financially and qualitatively with leaders not being replaced. Further, B. Hussein deserves significant blame, but not nearly the level of significance Trump deserves. Three years into your presidency and you're still looking over your shoulder to point at the other guy? Pathetic, unconvincing, and nothing more than the yammerings of a carnival barker.

Trump is politicizing this issue more than anybody because he is the one with the most to lose politically. Never forget that, ROC.

They didn't officially die of Coronavirus unless they test positive for Coronavirus.

No Tests=No Deaths from Coronavirus

This was the Trump plan.

The total death counts will be accurate. Deaths at home and in hospital above last years numbers will be a good proxy, even if cause of death is missing covid.

Joe Biden sure isn't. For someone who appears to be the DNC nominee for 2020, he sure has been absent from the conversation.

It's almost like Joe is in hiding. Did he get himself infected?

I wouldn't be the least surprised. Same goes for Elizabeth and Bernie.

I'm guessing most of the people staffing their campaigns have it too. Simply too much physical contact involved when running for office, especially POTUS, to consider otherwise.

I've wondered all of that. I would be even more shocked if Trump himself doesn't have it. He may be asymptomatic, and good for him if he is, but as much meeting and greeting as presidential candidates do, I don't see how they could have avoided it. And that's a scary thought.

We're not supposed to take note of the bodies holding up the DOW curve. Nothing to see there.

#TrumpBodyCount will go up as we find the people who died at home without health insurance or a hospital bed to get care or a respirator.

Honestly, I think that might be the plan. The senior-moment gaffes are stacking up at a torrid pace and that's happening in the process of limiting his exposure. Earlier this week have gave a short video speech in his basement and it went really bad. The teleprompter failed for a bit and when it did he was all over the place.

He's not as sharp as he used to be. Does that mean he has dementia? No. He's still my preferred candidate, BTW.

How does any criticism of Biden make one a full on Trumpkican? Is he a saint? Is he above reproach?

You are not as sharp as you used to be either.

That's Debatable.

Trump is a vindictive, lying POS and will do ANYTHING to get re-elected. Otherwise, his lying --- is going to prison.

The last thing that Biden should consider when he takes office in 2021 is a pardon for Trump as an attempt at uniting the country. If Biden contemplates such a move, he will cause such unrest that the National Guard will be called out to restore order. The best hope for Trump when he loses is to resign and let Pence take over. Pence can then issue the pardon. There will still be unrest but not as much as would have happened if Biden does the pardon.

Then there is the issue of NY state and NYC. I am sure that Trump's henchmen are looking for something to tarnish the NY State AG and NYC Prosecutor. Pence won't be able to pardon Trump for state crimes and no matter how much Trump comes to the aid of NY State, I don't think that Cuomo would jeopardize his presidential ambitions by pressuring the NY State AG or NYC prosecutor to drop their cases against Trump.
