Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 13, 2020

President Donald Trump and members of his coronavirus task force are pushing officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to change how the agency works with states to count coronavirus-related deaths. And they're pushing for revisions that could lead to far fewer deaths being counted than originally reported, according to five administration officials working on the government's response to the pandemic.

Trump seeks re-election standing on the very bones of his countrymen.

What's worse is the right will give it to him.

Even if the CDC doesn't, they'll be eviscerated by rightwing media and within days the 30% mouthbreathing GOP right will discount every single thing the CDC has to say.

Because Trump asked them to do so.

And thank God the likes of Mackris and Ira aren't here because they'd at the forefront of spreading that insidious crap.

Donald Trump walks into a room and coal is clean again, cars are affordable, decent housing is everywhere and my youngest looks a lot like the milkman.

Did you ever wonder what is must have been like to live in an era of American history where the President was subsequently panned as being terrible?

Now you don't have to.

Once again Trump is doing what he accuses others of.

Trump is the type of "captain" that doesn't go down with the ship but takes the ship down with him. He's a dumbass lying POS.

Yes I have because I have lived through Nixon, Reagan, Bush 1, Bush 2 and now Trump. All should have gone to prison.

No he isn't. He's the type of "captain" that commands virtually, while safely on land. He's the type of "captain" that want us all to be "warriors" though he claimed to have bone spurs when his time to be a warrior arrived. He would never go down with the ship but he would order his crew to stay aboard as they sink. I can hardly wait until Capt. Brett Crozier becomes Sec. of the Navy.

Far more qualified than the partisan hack who fired him. He will be Sec. of the Navy just so Trump will be humiliated.

Except the part that the Secretary of the Navy has to be a civilian.

By the time of the election, the death count will be 15, and going to zero, just like King Louie Trump so decreed months ago...

Lol. So Trump sees an issue with a count that the media on both sides have been reporting and decides to try to improve the way it's done. You know, improving things like Liberals keep yelling at him to do. So he does it and Libs lose their minds he is trying to improve.

Pathetic Glenn Becks.

Well, these so-called "rules" can be changed.

Just ask Humpy and the deplorables.

Improving it by having the CDC lie about the numbers?

You have a strange definition of "Improve."

If we counted Flu deaths like we count Coronavirus deaths, we'd only have 10K-15K per year ruled as Flu deaths.

All our current flu death numbers are pure estimates rather than tested or reported cases.

Trump sees an issue with how the medical community is recording deaths and the issue is not about accuracy, it's because the numbers expose his ineptitude. He's want to do the same thing he has accused China of doing.

With Trump, it's always about numbers - and how he can distort them to his advantage. Because substance has never really mattered to him, only how he is perceived.

This man's reelection campaign is deadly. How is it possible that we allow this to happen do us?

I never shared ideology with Glen Beck like you have for as long as you've been posting here. Hilarious post, if I didn't know better, I'd think your posts are parodies of right wing nuts like Beck. But that would require intelligence of which you are a bit lacking.

Humtake in a nutshell:

1. Say something stupid
2. Run away
3. Avoid reading anything that proves him wrong
4. Repeated on a new threat
