Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 10, 2020

Former President Barack Obama has sharply criticized President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, describing the administration's response as "an absolute chaotic disaster" during a call with fellow Democrats, according to a recording obtained by Yahoo News.

Trump has failed at everything he has tried except grifting the gullible and money laundering.

Trump is the biggest failure in the history of failures.

A very unstable doofus.

Totally compromised.

Make America Depressed Again.

Pretty sure COVID 19 is doing exactly what Trump wants.

Killing New Yorkers.

More from Trump:

Trump: 'We make ourselves look bad' through coronavirus testing.

"The media likes to say we have the most [coronavirus] cases, but we do, by far, the most testing. If we did very little testing, we wouldn't have the most cases. So, in a way, by doing all of this testing, we make ourselves look bad."

He quickly added that the United States has "done more testing than every other country combined" -- which is ridiculously untrue, but which has nevertheless become one of the president's favorite lies.

Regardless, Trump's unscripted comments offered a peek into an unhealthy perspective: he apparently has a problem with coronavirus testing, despite its critical significance, because the resulting data makes his administration "look bad."


What a dumb fkkk.

The problem is, stupid people believe these kinds of things are true.

Because there is a tiny grain of truth somewhere inside of all that. With no testing at all, we wouldn't even know what disease was killing these people. Why's flu season so bad this year, must be some new kinda flu we can't test for. Oh well, back to work America.

Obama and Trump have both left an indelible footprint on America.

One of strength, intelligence and stability and the other of weakness, ----------- and screwups.

Trump is in too deep now. He set this country on the road to disaster. Now he's trying to walk on quicksand. With 80,000 deaths, the Senate is starting to feel the pain of their own jeopardy. It won't be long before there's a mad scramble to save themselves. They know it and the GOP knows it. They've seen this movie before.

They're going to start siding with the House democrats.

Interesting how you've talked yourself into saying such things.

Such professions of faith are required in the Trump religion.

We "atheists" know that everything would be much less desperate now with Obama in charge. Or Biden.

Well, that's certainly your opinion, which you are free to expose for all and sundry. However, please keep that part of your anatomy, which everyone also has, to yourself. Thanks.

Jeff,

This is an anonymous comment section.

You can just say you hate Obama because he's black.

Don't pretend like you know things about politics or care about our standing on the international stage.

Man up.

As the saying goes. The truth will set you free.

As #19 coincidentally point out, in order to be right winger you have to tell lots of lies if you want to participate in a public forum. JeffJ MUST pretend it is something other than Obama's race which leads him to be so critical if he is to participate on a DR discussion involving Obama. The truth about what he believe and feels won't set him free, - it will get him permanently banned from this any other mainstream site.

Congratulations, JeffJ. You built that.

This is the issue:

Everyone has different opinions.

But Conservatives have different "Facts".

You can't argue with people who invent their own "Facts". Even if you prove beyond a doubt they are wrong about a fact, they refuse to believe it.

JeffJ argued hard that there was new evidence in the Flynn case. After being given an Order from the Judge showing their was no new evidence, he still insisted the evidence was new so he didn't have to change his opinion.

In the future say Obama was a "dark stain". Or better yet a "black stain".

The censor won't moderate it and you can kill two hateful birds with one stone. You get to trash Obama and his race all at the same time! Win win.

Since DR Libs are so smug and refuse to accept that they aren't perfect, I'll help you kids out:

""What we're fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy " that has become a stronger impulse in American life," Obama said in the 30-minute recording. "And by the way, we're seeing that internationally as well. It's part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty.""

That is Obama being truthful about the situation. That is him accepting that these trends of being selfish, tribal, and divided are LONG TERM trends. They didn't just start. In other words, have some humility like your Messiah does. He knows our nation has a deep rooted problem and has had it for much longer than Trump has been in office. One of Obama's best traits was his humility in many situations...not all, but many. I believe this is why Clinton didn't get elected. The country was ready for another Dem based on the attitude of hate that has gripped the nation, but without humility that hate is seen as incompetence. Hillary was the most smug candidates I've ever seen. Sad part is I think she was very qualified for the position. But a resume doesn't make someone the best fit for a job.

Yeah sure. That's why every job requires one. They don't mean nothin! Just a formality right?

Things were bad when Obama was President because of folks like you.

And now they are worse because of folks like you.

If you are part of trumps base then you are also part of the problem. Because he is only listening to you. And talking to you. Not me. I am a Democrat. Not a "real" American. Therefore I do not matter this election.

You see... I never heard Obama say anything like that after he was elected. To him we were all Americans to be governed as best he could. Now let me guess your response. You will say something like Obama started it with his (one) statement:

"And it's not surprising then they get bitter,they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Of course they did not identify republicans as those people but we could certainly infer that is who he was referring to.

Trump in the other hand comes right out and says that Democrats are "evil and vicious" and "dirty" and "human scum". And worse.

The fact that you cannot see the difference is very telling.

And FYI because I know the whole quote won't be produced so it is taken out context here it is:

@You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Not one mention of "Republicans" but he sure nailed down what a trumpet is.

McConnell warned Obama to STFU because he knows Trump will go after him with Porky Barr. Count on it.

"McConnell warned Obama to STFU because he knows Trump will go after him with Porky Barr. Count on it."

That's not the reason. Obama's credibility rating is so high it can still affect the stock market.

THAT is the Trump/McConnell worst nightmare.
