Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The Washington Post Editorial Board: Mr. Trump remains in blissful denial as crisis ripples through the Sun Belt, threatening to create chaos and distress nationwide for months to come. The reality is that the virus is not under control; it is in control. Record-shattering numbers of new cases were reported Wednesday in six states: California, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Arizona and Alaska. New daily cases are increasing in 41 states compared to two weeks ago.

IN A week in which the United States exceeded 50,000 new coronavirus cases on multiple days, more than double the rate of just a few weeks ago, there are important messages that President Trump could have sent from the White House podium on Thursday. He could have insisted that all Americans wear face masks in public, or urged them to steer clear of crowded July 4 celebrations. He could have pledged a renewed federal effort to expand the still-troubled program of diagnostic testing, a prerequisite for a return to normalcy. He could have given governors support for the need to impose new restrictions to contain the virus.

He did none of these things.

He was characteristically only concerned with praising himself. "We've done a historic thing," he said, adding that he saved "millions of lives" and now is opening up the country "far faster than anybody thought even possible and more successfully."

This is historic delusion, and it has consequences in human lives.

It's not nice to (play the) fool (before) Mother Nature.

Wear a mask in public. Let's protect each other.

Trump can't deal with his utter failure so he just lives in an delusional world where he never has to accept responsibility for anything. The ability to take responsibility for their actions should be the first qualification for anyone running for President. Donald Trump totally fails to qualify on that basis. He is directly responsible for the death count we are experiencing.

I still think Trump is an enemy agent.. he could not do any worse of a job with the virus... seems like he's tanking intentionally.

C'mon, our resident expert 'maverick' so eloquently pointed out above:

Followed by indisputable evidence.

"behind closed doors Pelosi and all her buddies DO NOT WEAR MASKS AND DO NOT SOCIAL DISTANCE. and, when the cameras are off Dr Fauci immediately takes his mask off"

If it is behind closed door and off camera how in the world do YOU know this?

Are those voices in your head telling you scary things?

I am just glad to hear somebody or something is in charge of this here American ---- Show.

This virus is so very smart. A very Bigly and Stable Virus. It's the best virus ever probably the best but maybe the best ever. I would probably maybe even vote for this virus because it's so smart and in control.

Especially if Trumpy was my only other option.
