Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 17, 2020

Taking a page from his dad's playbook, Eric Trump insisted in an interview Saturday that COVID-19 will "magically" disappear -- after Election Day. He claimed that the coronavirus that has killed 312,000 people around the globe " including nearly 90,000 Americans " is a ploy cooked up by the Democrats to stop Donald Trump from rallying his supporters at campaign events.

I hope this is fact checked and that fact check is broadcast widely. We can pick the biggest whopper per day and make it clear.

Eric Trump is as big of a moron that is portrayed on SNL.
Dumb as a bag of hammers!

If true, this means Trump will be postponing the election until April 2022.

Trump can try anything he wants but as of Noon on January 21, 2021 Trump is constitutionally no longer the president and Pence is no longer vice-president.

So it is written ~~ in stone.

If Trump tried to do that we could end up with a pro tem named Nancy. ~ LOL

That's why no president has ever tried it.

"And just like that, it will disappear"

- Donald AND Eric Trump

Verbal : After that my guess is that you will never hear from him again. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

He's not wrong because it's a hypothetical. If, and that if became a little further out of reach with latest polling in 15 EC rich states.

IF a democrat wins the White House, of course, the virus won't be gone, but the fear, panic and lock downs will disappear....Over....night !

and you can bet your little VW convertible or your electric car whose batteries have as big or bigger carbon footprint as your daddy's GTO on it

So in your world, hypothesis are irrefutable?

Curious.

Eric Trump is spouting one of many lies that Trump thinks people are dumb enough to believe.

The list of lies tells Trump puts out there to get re-elected is going to get longer and wilder between now and November.

Glad to see he's giving his family some actual work to do for all our taxpayer money they blow through.

I like the Trump brother caricatures on Saturday Night Live far more then the real deal.

At least in the parody the older one while evil also tried to look after his younger brother and the other one while simple-minded is just trying to make his family happy.

And yours is an intellectual and profound one, right?

JPW's inability to see himself in his own posts is mind boggling. What doe he do with that humongous brain, anyway?

Buy yourself a mirror for god's sake.

I'd just like to see Trump & Clan out of the way so I can hear some truth about that light at end end of the tunnel ~ whatever it turns out to be.

Like the following, for example.

sports.yahoo.com ~ OXFORD UNIVERSITY VACCINE TRIALS IN PROGRESS.

Of course, Trump would never admit someone else beat him to the punch.

Excerpt from link in #14:

FTSE 100 drug giant AstraZeneca (AZN.L) is lined up to make as many as 30 million doses of a potential COVID-19 vaccine if ongoing trials prove the drug to be effective.

UK business secretary Alok Sharma said on Sunday that AstraZeneca would make up to 30 million doses of an Oxford University-developed drug by September. The drugs giant has agreed to make 100 million doses in total.

The vaccine, known as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, is being developed by the Jenner Institute and Oxford Vaccine Group at the University of Oxford. Clinical trials began in April with early results coming as soon as this month.

Details of the production partnership between AstraZeneca and Oxford University had previously been announced but Sunday marked the first time production goals had been shared.

If my Daddy told me to go tell lies like Eric's Daddy does, I would have told my Daddy to go to ----. Eric Trup is a real -----. He should be ridiculed and laughed at whevever he raises his stupid head to speak in public.

I look forward to a day when Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and the rest can't walk down an American street in safety. They should live in fear for the rest of their (hopefully short) lives. I'm no threat to them, I've never even fired a gun in my life nor do I own one but there are others who are more capable and who are armed.

What a disgusting and vile thing to say. You disgust me.

The 2nd most disgusting thing is when you call the GOP a death cult and say this, then expect to get even a shred of credulity.

Right now the sons are just tools Trump is using to propagandize his re-election strategy. Lying comes as easy to the sons as it does for their father.

We're going to hear a lot of this trash talk between now and November. If Trump's strategy runs true to form, every lie we hear will be a projection ~~ Trump accusing others of what he is most guilty of himself.

Yesterday Trump proved my point. He said "The Obama administration is the most corrupt administration in American history."

THAT was pure "projection!"

It's true. Its not wrong to show hatred to toward trump and his cult anymore than it is wrong to show hatred toward the ku klux klan. Both are groups of hate and ignorance that terrorize others, spead misery and pain, and harm the rest of society. Both deserve hate and ridicule.

No one forced you to join. You can leave whenever you're tired of being stupid and cruel.

1. If a dem wins the white house, repubs will suddenly start taking the virus seriously and saying it's the feds' responsibility.

2. Of course a moron like you would spout that frequently disproven oil propaganda.

3. What was your old username that you had to abandon?

"He's not wrong because it's a hypothetical. "

No. He's wrong because he is a moron.

The virus is not going to disappear like magic.

Why would it? We keep giving it yummy bodies to consume.

When the Democrats win the White House we are not going back to "normal". What ever we do it should be better than what has become Trumptilian "normal".

Nothing that comes from this administration is "normal" so we are NOT going back there. We are going forward. We will leave the corruption of the Trump Crime family on the ash heap of history.

It's no accident that the states run by democrats are arresting people for observing their first amendment rights and even some of the 14th. While you two offer your crude and incorrect assessment, I'll be waiting on time to pass because time will be the final arbiter.

It is slightly more difficult to back a 'hypothetical" like a democrat winning the WH unless their "cheat by mail" platform is adopted and I don't see that happening, constitutionally at least.

Have a nice day.

To the Trumps I say go mingle among the masses. Hold your rallies. The King Conman already says he has immunity from the law and Moscow Mitch has your back. What are you afraid of?

Bringing up the Fox News hosts who are currently forking safely from their homes as they tell the rest of us to go to work pretty much makes it impossible to say anything nasty enough about them. They have given up any claim of humanity, any claim of having souls.

This is not even debatable. Eric, like every other sycophant in Trump's orbit, will say anything they're told to say.

It's on the "must do" list of Trump's campaign tactics ~~ right down to the last word.
