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

Dan Balz : President Trump downplayed the coronavirus threat, was slow to move and has delivered mixed messages to the nation. The federal bureaucracy bungled rapid production of tests for the virus. Stockpiles of crucial medical materials were limited and supply lines cumbersome. States and hospitals were plunged into life-and-death competition with one another. When the public looked to government for help, government sometimes looked helpless or frozen or contradictory ...

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

"America had the reputation of being non-ideological, super pragmatic, problem solvers, par excellence," he said. "This image of the United States was an earned image, of people seeing America do almost a wondrous series of things. ... We became known as the can-do country. If you contrast that with the image of the U.S. today, it's kind of depressing."
This all flew out the window the first second Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy. At that moment, every single thing; every criticism, every conflicting observation, every alternative theory, any action or thought that was not in lockstep agreement or support of Trump's own ideas or agenda became labeled as a politically, wholly partisan attack personally against Trump regardless of the applicable or practical merits of the counterfactuals competing with Trump's notions.

Career bureaucrats who never before accused of partisan bias in doing their federal jobs suddenly became the 'Deep State' if there work product conflicted with plans of Trumpism. Federal law enforcement - always the most politically and socially conservative bastion within the US government - was claimed to be controlled and helmed by wild-eyed liberal radicals whose sole purpose was not to enforce law and order but to illicitly perpetrate a coup against a duly-elected President simply by investigating the evidence of his campaign's ongoing and lied-about contacts and seeming coordinations with a hostile foreign power - proven to have implemented a counterintelligence operation to sow chaos and distrust within the American public by corrupting the presidential election process.

It didn't have to be this way and only one person - and one cult-like following for the ultimate carnival barker given a global stage that his lack of talent never deserved - stands at the choke point between competence and farce, blocking the path for rational decision making while funnelling life and death decisions to his son-in-law whose only notable accomplishment was somehow marrying his daughter.

This is the leadership that helms America during a once in a lifetime health crisis that is unfolding with this nation seeing the greatest numbers and percentages of infected citizens and deaths in the entire world, and we've not even reached the midpoint.

Trump fancies himself as a master marketer above all else. Normally he can either shift blame to someone else, say that all relevant criticism is politically motivated out of partisan hatred against him (projection turned to 11), or he'll change the subject and act as though the problem will solve itself - minimizing its importance or impact.

He's not going to be able to dodge the numbers of dead though. He's not going to be able to dodge the huge deep crater now taking up the space his booming economy once stood upon. Trump isn't Jesus. He isn't going to create a miracle with a couple loaves of bread and some fish. Americans don't have enough food, they don't have jobs, too many don't have health insurance, and now they long for some type of hope that when tomorrow arrives they'll still have lives worth living.

We've never been anywhere close to this in our lifetimes - and while the course of the virus is entirely predictable based on our response in taking the needed measures to control its spread until a vaccine is available - no one can predict how this Trump-led government (along with Congress) will lead us into our new tomorrow especially since we're in a much deeper hole due to their horrendous navigation of this crisis so far.

Donald Trump blurs the distinction between evil and mentally ill.

I think he's both.

I think, as the sociopath he is, that he takes (for want of a better word) enjoyment in seeing other people suffer and die.

I think that Trump's behavior on pandemic, going back years, represents a PATTERN- all the world like he wanted to make sure some new disease was as fatal in this country as it could possibly be.

Now EBERLY, you go for it.

I don't think Zed is far off in his suspicions in #1. I would add some evidence and some supposition to the mix. Donald Trump is too stupid to realize that eventually the virus would spread everywhere. He saw this as a blue state problem, and was happy about it. It started in Washington, then was found in California, New York, and New Jersey. Even now, the hardest hit states are blue, even those, Massachusetts and Maryland, with moderate GOP Governors. Donald Trump holds grudges, is all about grievance and has spent his time in the WH doing anything he can to hurt the blue states; case in point the GOP tax scam which was designed specifically to SCREW the blue states; another example is his lack of response to California's wildfires over the past couple of years. Drumpf even talked about opening up economically places that had smaller outbreaks (red states), which would have given them a leg up on the blue states. Now that we see the virus spreading to the red states like Louisiana and Florida, we know that Drumpf is sending those states everything they request from the federal stockpile and more, while the blue states are lucky to get 5% of what they requested, and Drumpf is casting doubt on the legitimacy of the blue state governor requests. Donald Trump saw this as a chance to really hurt the blue states and to be seen as a hero to the red states, the evidence is there and it's very clear.

Or the alternative is that Dotard is nothing more than a stupid, incurious malignant narcacist whose unrealistic belief is his capacity to read, understand and manage this problem has been overwhelmed; and because as with every GOP POTUS in my lifetime his disdain for government and Drumpf's specific flaw that requires him to surround himself with sycophants who are afraid to tell him something he doesn't want to hear he has effectively set himself and the government up to fail miserably at the exact moment we needed them the most.

For Eberly, none of this is personal. It's just something intangible he hears about. So. He's apathetic.

Someone he cares about will have to get COVID19 for him to care.

It's why, though he doesn't support Trump, he doesn't see what's so bad about Trump. Because nothing Trump has done, has really had any negative personal impact on Eberly.

You can apply this same train of thought to nearly everything Eberly posts.

In the end. It's all about him.

In the last month, the totality of response has been incredible. No amount of faux outrage because more than 0 people died doesn't change that. As a nation, we have responded very well. I know the political party not in power thinks that everything can move at light speed when they aren't in power and ignore all of the times when their party has had to address national emergencies and things don't happen at that speed. But as a whole, everything has gone very well. In fact, the only aspect we have been terrible at comes from the people, not the government. Now, one could argue it is due to the government not declaring martial law and forcing everyone to stay at home the second a new virus was announced, but that's only opinion and isn't part of the response discussion. Unless, of course, you are a person who does want all American society militarily forced to stay inside because more than 0 people got infected and died. The funniest part is hearing the same people complain about the government's response are ALSO the same ones complaining that their freedoms are being taken. There is a very technical term for those people...stupid. Here's a point that hopefully some of you will research to get a better understanding why partisan hate is failing you...go back to 2015 and see how much difference our response readiness was to something like this. You won't see much difference, in fact some parts were worse even after being much closer to previous pandemics than we were when this one hit. Some were better but some were worse. And that, my Liberal friends, means your hypocrisy is showing and you need to go wash your face.

Of course, that is not to say that we can't learn lessons and do better next time. There is always room for improvement. But just because something can improve doesn't necessarily mean it's bad. Otherwise, everything you've ever bought that says new and improved means the predecessors were bad, which common sense dictates is not true. It just means we find ways to make things better based on new findings and research.

I am also wondering, does it ever get tiring to have opinions that are only your opinion because of party affiliation? At some point, doesn't it get old that you live like that? How long does it take to realize your life can be much better if you stop spreading hate and instead live in a world where you are objective and constructive?

Trump pre-actively pats himself on the back for 240,000 American dead.

He'll be equally self-congratulatory at 500,000.

I wonder if you saw Trump's press conference last night?

That, alone, is reason he shouldn't be president.

In the last month, the totality of response has been incredible.

This sums up the sheer stupidity of the Republican Party.

Republicans: "We killed 200,00 people, crippled the economy and doubled the national debt...but we sort of stepped in after that!"

And the Feds STILL aren't fully stepping up.

Humtake, you should find a hole, crawl in, and never come out. Stupidity is as infections as COVID-19 and I worry you will continue to infect others.

All of America, Nay the entire world, will be much better off after November.

Period.

That's a mirage for some people. They believe they can see some sort of oasis in the horizon...but it's not there. An example could be "All of American will much better off after November".

That can be a true statement if things work out they way we hope...but it doesn't mean that poster will be better off.

Because some of us are not in it just for ourselves. It is not all that important or earth shaking whether I succeed or fail personally. I am just one person. My web does not extend that far.

It is important that America succeed. If America fails we all fail.

Are you lecturing someone else on that subject?

Why are you here lecturing anybody?

Right now, you're somewhere around 60+% of the posts on this place. And it's all flinging poo at others.

And you're going to lecture how you're selfless and a good person?

Idiot.

"Anyone that wants a test can get a test!" "if you need a test, you can get one!" "I haven't heard about testing in weeks!" - Trump

Orange County, Florida closed testing 7 minutes after they opened because they hit the Federal limit of 250 tests in one day.
