The Washington Post - opinion - The 5-Minute Fix

 

today

 


Responding to global health scares has traditionally been a rather bipartisan operation here in the United States, but that could change quickly if officials let politics drive decisions ...

 

And yet there’s a concern that President Trump’s administration is doing just that, prioritizing politics above keeping Americans safe. 

 

Here are five reasons his critics are worried:

 

1. The Post’s White House team has reported that Trump’s advisers are worried about what coronavirus could do to his reelection effort. 

2. In Trump’s news conference Wednesday, his goal was to ease worries about coronavirus in the United States.

3. After essentially firing his global pandemic response team two years ago, this week Trump appointed someone with a vested interest in his reelection, Vice President Pence, to lead the government’s coronavirus response.

4. The conservative media machine is out there casting doubt about the virus. 

5. So is the White House.

 

On Friday, Trump’s acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney accused journalists of bringing down the stock market by reporting on the virus ...

 

... Mulvaney’s comment was enlightening about what’s important for the White House when it comes to the coronavirus: the president.

This may explain why Trump won in New Mexico in 2016.

Shortly before the vote, the New Mexico amendment banning idiots and the insane from voting was repealed.

Unrelated it's possible for a woman to break three laws at once: being in public unshaven on horseback while wearing a kimono, and carrying a lunchbox.

Anywhere else that would be weird. In New Mexico it is pretty much par for the course.

Trump's got a big problem coming up with campaigning.  Big crowded political rallies full of red hatters spitting bile. Especially so when many will be believing the messages being propagated through conservative commentators and social media trolls that "the virus is fake news / a democrat hoax". Throw into the mix that many of them are old and unhealthy looking, and it's really a great recipe for a kind of "Social Darwinism" that many of these morons believe in  -backfiring in the bigliest way.

Yeah, I couldn't see Trump embracing anyone, including Melania or his kids, or as he calls his prodigy, those things that ruin a woman's body.

Strange thing about "germaphobe" Trump is he had raw dog sex with a porn star. Guess he doesn't care if he's the one giving diseases.

Business Insider: Trump is such a germaphobe that aides aren't allowed to cough in his presence and visitors must wash their hands before entering the Oval Office, report says

I would think a porn star would be likely to give as good as she gets.

I never thought about online shopping for dried orange mushrooms on pron sites before.
Thanks for the thought.

I have two recurrent fantasies about the appropriate mode of death of Donald Trump:

 

Scenario 1:  He is struck by lightning whilst ranting at a hate rally.

 

Scenario 2: The germophobe Narcissist is killed by Covid-19 whilst loudly denying its existence.

 

More probably, his fast food diet will kill him, but not before he wins the next election.  😐

The Washington Post - Trump’s new attack on Biden exposes his own unfitness

 

March 4, 2020 

 


At a rally in North Carolina on Monday night, this actually happened: President Trump ripped into a resurgent Joe Biden by claiming he bungles facts and often appears confused.

 

Yes, Trump suggested the former vice president is mentally unfit for the presidency.

 

Let it be noted that this came only hours after Trump held an open session on coronavirus, at which he stumbled over the concept of vaccines and seemed to suggest he has no idea that clinical trials are required for medications. ...

 

Does Trump really want to open the door to a debate over mental fitness for the presidency?

 

Apparently he does. At the rally, Trump slammed Biden for botching a gun violence statistic ...  “Sleepy Joe, he doesn’t even know where he is or what he’s doing or what office he’s running for.”

 

If Mr. Biden won the presidency, Mr. Trump said, his staff would actually do the governing. 

 

They’re going to put him into a home, and other people are going to be running the country,” the president said, “and they’re going to be super-left, radical crazies. And Joe’s going to be in a home and he’ll be watching television.

 

Yes, those words were actually uttered by Trump, who regularly relies for his most urgent policy updates on none other than Fox News. ...

type what we like, after analysing the super tuesday results (by my own analysis) Trump is getting his second term.

 

prediction: Biden vs Trump but if the Dems have a bitter fight to the bitter end (like last time) that will tear apart the Dems and Trump wins again.
