Sunday, March 29, 2020

How a failure to test blinded the U.S. to Covid-19 -- Aggressive screening might have helped contain the coronavirus in the United States. But technical flaws, regulatory hurdles and lapses in leadership let it spread undetected for weeks.

WEll its obvious to me the dems and libruls staged this whole thing to further the socialist agenda.

It worked too... all the peons ordered to stay at home so the economy crashes and the world as we knew it comes to an end.

Ironic isn't it?

I have close relatives who watch fox news and still think Coronavirus is a media hoax.

One of them got on an airplane to go to a place he usually drives to, just to prove a point.

Trump won't face any consequences for his failures because anyone who liked him before doesnt believe he did anything wrong.

Biden will have to drop out late into the campaign, and his running mate will have to take over= unopposed landslide

Wow...after all this you still want Joe out of the way. That's FF for days. Seriously FF for days! So you think Trumplethinskin's handling of this giant HOAX to put him out of office is going to fetch him a landslide as long as Biden is out of the way?

I wish I could say that Trump won't let his own people starve during a pandemic, but we Irish are familiar with such things from history.

What's worse, I've talked to countless Right-wingers who don't see food as a right.

Trump finally encountered a challenge that could not be beat by lies, threats or other peoples money.

It will cost 100,000 Americans their lives.

Only 100,000?
I appreciate your optimism!

I am only blaming Trump for the deaths that were preventable. But the level of ignorance and expertise denial in the US could kill more.

It's biblical. Conservatives made a false idol of Trump and now they are paying. We all are.

Someone overdosed on Tucker and Hannity and is going to be flat out devastated when their Orange Fuhrer loses in a landslide. Fox New's own poll already has Benedict Donald DOWN 8-10 points.

Trump screeching about the COVID 19 being a Democratic hoax has done more damage than his negligent response to the virus.

#26 | Posted by ClownShack at 2020-03-29 01:23 PM | Reply

#26 Trump calling it a hoax was just one facet of Trump's negligence.

He's so used to crying "Democrat" he forgot to cry "Wolf!"

Again, this is why they voted for him. This is the populism they crave. They love the safety of feeding from his hand.

It may well have been politically expedient to let the wolf roam free in all fifty states, and then blame the governors for not stopping it.

Will Americans forget about the next eight weeks, eight months from now? Will Americans credit Trump for stopping it, after the first wave overwhelms the hospitals and the mass graves filled with lime and covered with dirt?

At least 25% of us will. They'll praise Trump for culling the herd of the old, the sick, and the genetically inferior.
So Much Winning!

I'm not saying it isn't real but you people want to predict deaths and blame Trump. That qualifies you as fools. But it's comical during the 4th year. But it's your high card in what little life you have.

Predict deaths? The models have been, and have always been, accurate.

Take it up with them.

It's actually your hiding the truth that makes people complacent and leads to deaths.

Just be honest.

Fauci just said between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths according to the current numbers.

There have been hundreds of models run with deaths ranging from 4000 to 6000000. So yes sure one of them is probably correct.
