Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 05, 2020

In September 2018, the Trump administration received detailed plans for a new machine designed to churn out millions of protective respirator masks at high speed during a pandemic. The plans, submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) by medical manufacturer O&M Halyard, were the culmination of a venture unveiled almost three years earlier by the Obama administration. But HHS did not proceed with making the machine.

How many stories like this before we start to suspect that Trump wanted some future pandemic to kill as many people as possible?

OOOOOH so the truth is NOW coming out. The Mask maker in the US was listened to by the Obama administration. They were working on a way to do something about it.

But wait. We now have part of a wall that blows down in 35 mph winds. So that is something we should all be proud of. So quit blaming Trump for taking away funding from other projects so we could build his wall. He promised his stupid voters he was going to build a was, so he ignored his other responsibilities and built the wall. I hope that his voters are happy, hope Coronavirus doesn't sneak up and kill them.

The Obama administration thought of this. That's all IMPOTUS needed to know to axe it. Sigh.

He doesn't need a future pandemic. He's got this one. And he's hoping to kill 20% of Americans living in blue states. Especially New York and California.

Besides. Him and his rich buddies are safe.

Also, he's trying to get another tax cut passed.

So, ventilators? Learn how to breath poor people.

If only Trump's brother had been a germaphobe instead of an alcoholic!

BUT! "ask the previous administration" COVFEFE-45 said recently, as if the last three and a half years never existed...

All Trump needs to do is mutter Obama or Hillary and his rabid base froths at the mouth and stops thinking.

He knows what he's doing.

Sorry but that was just funny. Who the hell is going to hold Trump responsible?
