China has acknowledged it destroyed some samples of the novel coronavirus in the early stages of the outbreak, but challenged U.S. allegations that this was conducted as part of a cover-up.

So it had stuff sitting around in labs not eqquiped to handle it? Right. That would explain the disappeared doctors and the studies scrubbed from the internet.

China admitted.....what.....this has to kill the left. They would have to admit, just partly that trump was correct. Even though we know they know but hold true to China cause of the DNC or DMC stance.

China unleashed a deadly virus on the world and the right eagerly spread it to kill Americans so they could shop and party.

The Reich wing are an anti American death cult.

Trump said covid was like the flu and would go away. He waited for the virus to spread before doing anything. Then he said he knew it was a pandemic before anyone.
Trump lied. 50,000 Americans died.

Why?

It's but the slightest of exaggeration.

Ongoing evidence tends to confirm it.

But it's nice that someone could say something that touches you people.

I've been imagining you people as that crowd of Kali worshippers cheering on human sacrifice in "Temple of Doom".

Donald Trump is going to go golfing. GOLFING, and the American COVID death count will breach six figures in just a few days, and will continue to risw.

DON'T TELL ME that he and his followers have the same concern about dead and dying human beings as the rest of us do.

I'm guessing your answer will be some nonsense that only exists in the caricature left in your head.

Thanks for doing your best to prove to us just how ffffking (R)Tard Trump's voters are.

Trump is the President of the United States.

His job is to protect the nation.

He failed. His failure allowed a virus to spread across this nation.

Thank God Trump wasn't President during the Ebola fiasco. Otherwise millions of Americans would have died from Ebola.

That's funny because Ebola is waterborne and you have to drink from the same river sick people bathe....

Ebola viruses are highly transmissible by direct contact with infected blood, secretions, tissues, organs, and other bodily fluids from dead or living infected persons. Transmission via inanimate objects contaminated with infected bodily fluids (fomites) is possible.

It's like HIV.

While your depiction of the left is obviously wrong, don't play us for stupid, I do agree that China has something to do with the release of covid-19. From what I have gathered it was transported from Italy into China for study, but that may be completely false information. They are desperate to hide the origins of the outbreak and so reverse engineering the information, particularly when China likes to disappear those involved makes it rather conclusive that Chinese government-funded labs are involved.

Do you consider China to be a far-left government?

Why does it matter where it came from? The issue is how we responded to it. Compare the results in the US with the results in South Korea. Both recorded their first infection on the same day.

Totalitarianism, human rights abuses, etc. are left wing?

Do you see them advocating food stamps or public housing? Or upset with the rich getting richer while the poor can't improve their lives?

You're pretty worthless as usual.

Nope.

We also blame China. We just don't use it as an excuse for Trump doing nothing for all of February, refusing to take the virus seriously, and opposing testing, contact tracing and protective equipment.

It's no small wonder you took the name Crassus after the Roman leader who put down the Spartacus slave rebellion and crucified 6,000 slaves along the road to Rome. He was one of the most greedy men in history who got himself and his son killed by his own arrogance.

#21 | Posted by Sycophant You are alone in the opinion that Communist are not left wing. Does the term "useful idiots" used by V. Lenin register? How about the term 'the dictatorship of the proletariat"? What part of the word dictatorship do you not understand?

No, I'm really not.

The issue is you are trying to use a left-right model taken from US politics and apply it to a party in China. It doesn't work that way.

The Communist Party in China may be communist but that doesn't mean they are clearly Leftist.

Leftist Attributes of the Communist Party:
State Ownership of Some Businesses
Strong Central Government

Rightist Attributes of the Communist Party:
Very Nationalist
Very Socially Conservative
Old Right Capitalist with banking, investment and real estate
Less Democratic, more Oligarch in nature

You saying the Communist Party is Leftist is like saying a Buddhist is either more Christian or more Muslim. It simply doesn't make sense.

Ironically, the opposition to the Communist Party in China over the last decade is coming from what you would consider leftist groups were they here in the US.

You are a "Useful Idiot" for Conservatives because you associate the Chinese Communist Party with the Left in America. But no one is surprised.

If Trump decided in January to restrict all travel into the US, massively restrict, due to the virus, every court would have had lawsuits, everyone would have screamed he has no proof to do it with this extreme measure, and Trump's action would have been just a deflection of the impeachment process.

The country was focused on impeachment went ---- broke loose. A virus was far from the front pages.

Early on, both parties throughout the country, didn't see the severity.

US citizens would not have accepted restrictions then, and still balk at them now.

The WHO gave bad assurances from the beginning. Taiwan at least acted. Most countries did wait-and-see. Unfortunately, this virus didnt conform to waiting.

I don't blame the pols for waiting. This is a new, infectious virus. What the leaders did was fail. Not just the President. The Governors failed. Fed and State.

The virus doesnt care what is on your voting card.

"The worst pandemic response in the history of all pandemic responses."

This is why kids should never be involved in politics. History is a long time and all the evidence is there that proves this completely wrong. In fact, this statement is EXACTLY something Trump would say if he was the one making the statement if he wasn't in charge. These type of all-encompassing exaggerations is what the Left continues to hate on Trump about but then they turn around and do the same thing. And yet they are still oblivious to doing it even when it's so easy to see.

I like how Humtake has taken deflection to the next level by comparing Donnie "the Disaster" Trump's response to COVID-19 to the responses to every known pandemic throughout history.

I mean, clearly the response to the black plague was worse than the response to COVID19. (Mostly thanks to state governors who took it in their own hands to issue quarantines and protect the people of their states.)

Thanks for the History Lesson, Dumbtake.

Trump hasn't killed as many of his own citizens as Stalin, so I guess he's doing a great job!
