National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow attempted to explain his rationale behind his baseless claim earlier this month that COVID-19 was "contained" during an interview on ABC News Sunday morning.

"Look, I'm as good as the facts are"

Everyone knew you were lying at the time.

This is the guy your cult chose. Are you doubting their choices? That will get you kicked out of the cult.

I knew that we could identify a real "Enemy of the people".

What should we do about him?

Why would anyone listen to or appoint an idiot like Kudlow? He was bagdad bob right up to the 2008 financial collapse. He was spouting the same hubris about covid.

Trump admin arrogance and incompetence will likely kill over 100,000 Americans.

The worst administration in the history of all administrations.

Is cokehead morning drinker Lying Larry Kudlow claiming that the facts were withheld from him? Is he claiming the medical people withheld details because we know that didn't happen, or is he admitting Dotard sent him out with a script of happy talk to Bagdad Bob the American people? Everybody who was paying attention to the news at the time knew the facts and knew Kudlow was full of -----. He should be prosecuted for every deat that occurred over the trendline set by South Korea, as should everyone in this regime and the Reichwing news media who downplayed the seriousness of this crisis because they got Americans killed.

He also said, "I don't think it's going to be an economic tragedy."

This part, they still believe.
Just ask them.

The market was overvalued anyway. We were bound for a recession sooner or later. It's mostly down because of oil price anyway, not because of the most jobless claims in a week this nation has ever seen until a few weeks from now.

He is referring to #AlternativeFacts.

This is what happens when an administration CHOOSES what "facts" to believe.

Don't worry. It only cost us about 100,000 people or so.

How odd that anyone who isn't Trump, a Trump associate or supporter all knew it wasn't contained.

Trump appoints a bunch of television idiots to important posts and then wonders why everything doesn't run as smoothly as a fake reality tv show. Everything Trump does is an embarrassment.

Let's not pretend they didn't know the truth.

Why do you think they classified the Coronavirus Briefing in February? Them and all their buddies could sell off stock and buy medical company stock before anyone else knew how bad it was going to get.

Well, it WAS rather obvious (in a Baghdad Bob sorta way).

But Trump and his associates/supporters aren't talking to us. They're talking to their stupid base, trying to keep them on the hook for November.

COVID-19 just happens to be the most deadly in a long string of "who could have known?" issues that the Trump administration has failed to confront competently.

Pigs won't admit they were posturing and acting stupid. They all know they blew it and it is all a matter of public record.,, the entire world saw it.

Small price to pay for experiencing the greatness that is Trumpy.

It's only a bunch of old people anyway. The tree Liberty is very thirsty this year.

The virus can't touch our very Dear Leader who is only 73 years young and anointed by Gawd.

And "apparently" hearing voices again. That's never a good sign.
