Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 01, 2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is facing a call for an investigation after it sent a coronavirus mailing prominently featuring President Donald Trump's name to millions of Americans. "In terms of design, the main feature of the mailing is Trump's name rather than the actual guidelines," the watchdog group Accountable.US wrote in a Wednesday letter to the Department of Health and Human Services' inspector general. "In fact, the message including the President's name takes up more real estate on the postcard - one full side - than any other item."

Past discussion has not vitiated the smarminess of Trump's behavior.

Like I said before, I'm just surprised that the card didn't read:

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S
CHINESE VIRUS
GUIDELINES FOR
AMERICA

And as I said somewhere else, that I suspect that Trump never even read what was on the back side of the card, let alone believe that it was relevant. It's like the report where he wants his name, and easily recognized Sharpie-written signature, on the face of the relief checks being mailed to American taxpayers.

Thankfully, if you have direct deposit set up with the IRS you won't have to ever see a check with that piece of filth's signature on it.

Ego, Hubris and vanity don't even began to capture this. What a jackhole.

Of course if it said "CDC" tRumpites would have called it fake news...

It was reported that once Trump realized that he might be able to get his name and signature placed on the on the face of the relief checks, that he asked one of his minions to go to the Treasury Department and see whether it was possible to NOT use direct deposit, but rather, ONLY send out paper checks. As toady as Steve Mnuchin might appear when he's standing there drooling next to Trump, I think he realized that if they had tried something like that, even the Republicans in Congress would be demanding his head on a pike.

The answer to the IG's question is "Yes" of course the CDC was trying to get Trump reelected. The CDC has been captured, and with this mailing they are trying to rehabilitate Dotard's image as concerned for American's health as oppsed to the moron who until a couple of days ago spent months downplaying the threat this country faced.
