Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 11, 2021

CDC:COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth. In some circumstances, they may contaminate surfaces they touch. People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected.

Rofl...I love how DR just glossed over the part where it says they grossly misrepresented the ability of covid to spread. So all this time you were hating on Trump for not making this a national apocalypse pandemic and under-reacting, he was actually representing reality more than the CDC.

So, the question is, how sheepish do all of you feel now? Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

I don't in the least. Nor would anyone with a brain that was cautious. What a stupid, ignorant, idiotic conclusion to draw from this.

This has all been known for months.

Doing nothing because he was a self-absorbed ignorant moron isn't "representing reality more than the CDC."

Also interesting is how you've glossed over the new data showing efficacy of masks.

Saying it was one case and that it was going away is criminally negligent.

Saying it will go away like magic, it was not as bad as the flu, telling people to defy stay at home orders was criminally negligent.

Holding super spreader events was criminally negligent.

Denying funds to blue states because of your political agenda was criminally negligent.

Telling people to take hydroxychloroquine, bleach, disinfectants and shove uv lights in the body was criminally negligent.

I'd argue that Combover Quisling did more than nothing. He actively sabotaged the best efforts of Dr. Fauci and the contagious disease experts by downplaying the seriousness of the virus and disease, by comparing it to the flu, by encouraging his MAGAts flaunt mask mandates and shutdowns, by encouraging Americans to gather for religious services, and elsewhere, and by pursing an idiotic strategy of herd immunity, which killed hundreds of thousands more than needed to die.

I like to use the South Korean example to illustrate exactly how bad Dotard's response was, both countries got their first case diagnosis on the same day, but South Korea, with their experience with SARS, immediately started masking, physical distancing, testing and contact tracing, while Dotard publicly downplayed it in spite of what he told to Bob Woodward about knowing how easy Coronavirus spread and how dangerous COVID was. South Korea controlled the pandemic and had very few cases and deaths:

I'll accept that culturally the US is different from South Korea, I will add that's because about a third of us are too stupid to follow good advice, or are subject to being conned into joining a cult of personality because we believe BS fed to them by the Faux Entertainment Channel and Reichwing "media." So if the US had done just as well as Canada, at least 225,000 more Americans would still be alive today: How about against the EU, this study finds that US deaths at 100 days were 100% higher than the EU. If you push the numbers out for the length of his Presidency, since we know he did nothing to improve things at any stage, Dotard is personally responsible for at least 250,000 dead Americans based on official COVID death statistics: Now we learn that if you add the excess deaths in the country to the COVID count, since people who died at home were generally not tested for COVID, we see that nearly a million Americans died on Dotard's watch, and if he's personally responsible for about half, then that's the blood of at least 450,000 dead Americans on his hands.

Orange Adolf also sabotaged the efforts to control the pandemic by pushing Hydroxychloroquine as an effective remedy. The morons in his cult actually believed that they could go about their lives as normal, and if they got COVID, they'd be okay because they could get Hydroxycholorquine at the hospital. A few days ago I had an argument on FB with a MAGAt who still insists that Hydroxychloroquine works against COVID, because Peter Navarro continues to promote it. I cited several articles including from scholarly journals and could not get through the wall of stupid. I cited CDC and the study done by the VA, and nada. I swear people like Dumbtake refuse to learn because being stupid doesn't threaten their worldview.

It is simply not possible that poor backwards and right next to China Vietnam has such low coronavirus rates compared to America without the virus having the equivalent of fifth columnists in the White House and the Senate in 2020.

An aerosol is just a small droplet, so transmission by small droplets has always been almost certainly the case.

If anything I think you understated it. IF Trump had manned up and actually been on top of it telling people to mask up, etc. I think we would have done even better than Canada because his minions are so fervent.

Trust me, you're preaching to the choir.
