Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 02, 2020

The president had urged states to "make a deal" Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, has complained that Fema contributes to a bidding war between states for ventilators, likening the situation to eBay. Wednesday's White House coronavirus taskforce briefing made an unusual start as Trump was first joined by the attorney general, William Barr; the secretary of defense, Mark Esper; and top military officials, who did not seem concerned with physical distancing. And with America still digesting predictions that up to 240,000 people could die from the pandemic, the president instead focused on "drug cartels" " a familiar applause line at his campaign rallies.

He's just repeating his rally punch lines. Mentally, he doesn't care about Covid-19 and he's using the press conferences to stage a national rally.

WASHINGTON " President Donald Trump's re-election campaign urged surrogates in a call Wednesday to capitalize on the coronavirus pandemic to attack his rival Joe Biden and other Democrats as "the opposition" in Trump's war against the outbreak, according to a person who participated in the call.

"This is the bottom line: President Trump is leading the nation in this war against the coronavirus, and Joe Biden, the Democrats and the media have decided to be the opposition in that war,"

OMG! Things are so insane, I didn't know about this being said yesterday:

Trump during a press conference: "Did you know I was number one on Facebook? I just found out I'm number one on Facebook." (Trump has 29 million followers; Obama has 53 million.)

Psychopath!

Darn and I already donated all my N95's to the local hospital so I guess there goes my idea of selling them for 5 bucks a pop on ebay.

Why we shouldn't elect idiots without experience and let them appoint idiots without experience to run things:

"Last week, a Trump administration official working to secure much-needed protective gear for doctors and nurses in the United States had a startling encounter with counterparts in Thailand.

The official asked the Thais for help"only to be informed by the puzzled voices on the other side of the line that a U.S. shipment of the same supplies, the second of two so far, was already on its way to Bangkok."

This is two months AFTER we sent 18 tons of such medical gear to China.

Republicans wanted to blow up government. They succeeded. And now a lot of people are going to die in our country for it.

Thanks Republicans.

#9 Even crazier? He's lying about it. Obama has more likes on Facebook. That's the next level of depravity.

Barack has 55 million likes to his page. Donald has 3.2 million.

This isn't nearly as bad for Trump as the time he had to tell the hookers in his VIP Room at Studio 54 that the cocaine is almost gone.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. We import almost half of our personal protective medical equipment from China. LIFT THE TARIFFS ON MEDICAL SUPPLY IMPORTS IMMEDIATELY!

If there only was some sort of action the President could take to mobilize American industrial capacity for a national emergency.

If only there was something we could do!

Oh well. Too bad. So sad.

Nothing Can be Done.

It snuck up in us!!!

Who could have known?

If only someone had known this could happen!

What's that? They knew?

Lock Them Up!!!

"The Trump team was told it could face specific challenges, such as shortages of ventilators, anti-viral drugs and other medical essentials, and that having a coordinated, unified national response was "paramount" " warnings that seem eerily prescient given the ongoing coronavirus crisis."
