Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 05, 2020

Donald Trump has said he hopes George Floyd is "looking down right now" and saying the decline in US unemployment announced on Friday is a "great thing that's happening for our country". The nation's unemployment rate saw a surprise decline following the coronavirus pandemic but remains higher than during the Great Recession.

Poor Trump had his "great day" ruined by another pesky reporter:

Then came some fact-checking. PBS' Yamiche Alcindor asserted asked: "How would a better economy have protected George Floyd?" Then she added: "Black unemployment went up by 0.1%, Asian-American unemployment went up by 0.5%. How is that a victory?"

Instead of answering Alcindor's question, Trump indignantly responded, "You are something" before walking away.

Tone deaf? I guess. Clueless is what I call it though.

The unemployment rate in Germany is up to 5.8. And Trump is crowing about nearly 14?

Trump says we're winning,bigly. Time to thank him again. Our great father showing us the path to greater and greater prosperity.

It's a bookkeeping trick. The feds loaned my boss money so he pays me not to work. Technically I am off UC, but still getting paid to do nothing.

Don't go wild spending all that money. That 75% your boss is required to spend on keeping you on the payroll has just been reduced to 60%. Sorry, but you'll be getting a pay cut soon thanks to Trump's forked tongue.

Germany's lockdown results are still exploding. Theirs is a Q2 thing, where the worst of ours hit in Q1.

We have not seen the worst of ours. New York was what will happen to the rest of us. In two weeks everyone will be locked down again in America.

Maybe Trumpy can send his storm troopers to tear gas that unruly virus when it starts surging a few days from now.

More lockdowns you think? And they're going to enforce those with the police huh?

And in every major city it'll be the Democrat mayor's political appointee having us tear gassed. You'll have to go to Fed property in DC to get tear gassed by the DOJ.

Also potential to be tear gassed by a Governor's "national" guard.

They need to in the cousin fccking areas of certain states, and in all areas of the sister fccking states.

No doubt.

Hopefully they all just kill each other.

The world would be a better place.

No more lockdowns. No one is going to listen if they are proposed:

Las Vegas is officially back.

Hours after saying that "this is a great day" for George Floyd, Trump retweets a post quoting conservative commentator saying of Floyd, "The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me."

Our flight just got canceled, I even scrounged up enough N95 masks and gloves for our anniversary there but now it looks like we won't be going. They want almost 400 more for the flight change and that's just not in the budget.

Pisses me off a bit but at the same time seeing the complete lack of precautions in that video maybe not such a bad thing.

Meanwhile, deaths from COVID-19 continue to be 1000+ per day. We're still at triple digit new day-over-day cases in my city.

BTW, Brazil's president, Bolsonaro, a Trump act-alike, has banned reporting of cumulative deaths from COVID-19. Trump must be seething with jealosy over Bolsonaro's ability to do that.
