Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 28, 2020

Mongolia shares a border which China - where the pandemic is believed to have originated - and lacks the healthcare system of wealthier countries. With very few ventilators in the country, Mongolia would seem like a prime candidate to be ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic. But the country hasn't recorded a single COVID-19 death and has no community transmission to speak of.

FTA:
"Mongolia moved swiftly to close its borders to China in January to prevent the virus from spreading into its territory. It was just the second country, behind North Korea, to do so.

Health officials also told the public to wear a mask on January 10, just days after they had learned of the virus. The following month, the government started flying Mongolians living abroad back home and testing them."

And with a few simple precautions and some real leadership we could have slowed it considerably, as well.

But we have Trump.

It's kind of hard to take an article serious with that whopper in the opening.

#2 I think it's just a CYA statement put there to appease the lawyers.

Trump ran the pandemic response like he does his businesses. As an excuse to grift and steal money.

But they have an essentially unpopulated nation on the High Desert steppes with a bunch of nomadic hunter-gatherers who ride midget horses everywhere and live in yurts and ----.

You're comparing Mutton and Starbucks.

It's kind of mean to mutton to compare it to Donald Trump.

Trump is a racist and a xenophobe.

He should have listened to his xenophobia for once.

Trump -- and no one else -- had the power to keep this from getting to our shores.

I bet even you understand that, Maverick. But an even safer bet is that you'll never admit it.

Unlike the U.S., China contained the virus. About 85,000 TOTAL cases of COVID-19 and 4000 deaths.

This is the "Trump Flu" because our massive outbreak needn't have happened. They didn't even have thermometers at the airports when people just flew in instead in through Europe after flights from China were banned.
