Pres Trump continues to turn this American health disaster/crisis/emergency into political theater.

Americans are dying, and Pres Trump continues to play politics.

It's no longer just a matter of incompetence. Pure malevolence seems to be at work here.

Trump/GOP seem to be doing everything in their power to destroy this country. Wonder how much Putin is paying them for this service.

I don't believe in smear campaigns
But when I do, I invest in the GOP smears
I prefer RNC smears over DNC smears as they serve me better personally

Is it even really that?

Fauci polls better than Trump and he's jealous.

Trump retweets game show host who said CDC is lying about coronavirus to hurt him politically
thehill.com

...President Trump on Monday shared a tweet from game show host Chuck Woolery, who claimed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other sources of information are lying about the coronavirus pandemic to hurt the president in November's election.

"The most outrageous lies are the ones about Covid 19. Everyone is lying. The CDC, Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all but most ,that we are told to trust," Woolery tweeted. "I think it's all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election. I'm sick of it."...


Pres Trump - politics above the health of Americans.

Chuck Woolery used to be a good looking guy. Now he looks like a melted candle.

Yes doctors, that lot of lib-commie knaves bent on thwarting the United States.

135,000 dead. And all he cares about is himself. Shameful.

I wish Trump could be charged with mass murder.

HRC warned us about the Deplorables. Did we ALL listen? No. And now, one of the best public servants in a long, long time is about to be smeared for doing his job, telling the truth to power and sounding an alarm that was later drowned out by an orange foghorn and dog whistle...

How long before Chuck Woolery becomes head of the coronavirus task force?

HRC warned us about the Deplorables.

How dare you use that term! Just for that I'm gonna vote for Trump/GOP in 2020 while drinking a bottle of bleach and spraying Lysol in my eyes. Then I'm gonna run around maskless, spreading the fake virus, and go to an all you can eat asbestos buffet. I'll cap off my day by returning to my volunteer job mining coal so I can help poison the environment for the generations that follow. Maybe I'll watch some videos of children being locked up in cages to help me fall asleep.

How did those dastardly Democrats get 375,000 foreigners to die for our hoax?
Or are they in on it too?

Trump acts like a spoiled little girl.
Can't wait for anybody to take charge instead of crying victim all day every day.

The White House is denying this...

White House Stresses Trump's Good Relationship' With Fauci
www.bloomberg.com

..."The notion there's opposition research, that there's Fauci vs. the president, couldn't be farther from the truth. Dr. Fauci and the president have always had a very good working relationship," White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters....

Reminds me of this video...

So Trump is indeed claiming that testing actually creates new cases. From earlier today:

"We test more than anybody by far. And when you test, you create cases. So, we've created cases."

More Trump:

"As an example, we've done 45 million tests. If we did half that number, you'd have half the cases, probably around that number. If we did another half of that, you'd have half the numbers. Everyone would be saying we're doing well on cases."

Trump would prefer no testing at all. Then he could claim no coronavirus.

It's hard to reconsile that, but essentially whatever is televised is reality to his base.

All I see are posts calling fauci a wackjob and needs to shut up. This guy makes speculation and predictions and has been dead on so far. Must be jealous his ratings higher than trumps..

Trump's working that "Dr. Fauci's been wrong a lot of times" to justify keeping Fauci off center stage.

Any time Fauci has been wrong is because of an abundance of caution. That's a good thing.

Trump should try an abundance of caution sometime before he shoots off his mouth.

Trump claiming Fauci has been wrong about things, does he think we've forgotten all the garbage that came out of Trump's mouth about this virus? I'll take Fauci's information any day over Trump's.

Trump is a day trader. What he said yesterday, or even an hour ago, doesn't mean squat.

Just saw this from CNN:

The answer to a question some of have been wondering:

"Under federal law, Trump doesn't have the power to directly fire Fauci, a career civil servant, and remove him from government. And while Trump could try ordering his political appointees to dismiss the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fauci could appeal -- a time-consuming process."

With that information on hand and knowing how punitive, vindictive and desperate Trump is to keep the public uninformed/misinformed about the severity of the health crises sweeping the country, I'm going to take a wild guess and predict that Trump will now attempt to block the entire Center of Disease Control from receiving the data they need to analyze the direction the coronavirus is taking.

If Trump is successful, the only voice we will hear is his. Which is exactly what he wants.
