Trump watched cable tv, golfed, held rallies, tweeted for a good 6 weeks while Covid-19 ran amok.

And now we need more body bags.
He took it serious, he said so - I swear!

In Trumplandia video tape archives DON'T EXIST as long as Hannity and Trump say so !


President Donald Trump has evolved on the coronavirus pandemic.

The president spent the first six weeks of the outbreak insisting that the situation was under control. He even characterized Democratic criticism of the federal government’s response, which has been lowlighted by an inability to test sufficient numbers of people for the virus, as “their new hoax.”

But this week, as the number of cases — and the death toll — rises and the economy looks increasingly bleak, Trump’s tone has shifted. In a notable development, Trump took a calm and measured tone during Monday’s press conference, deferring to experts on scientific questions and outlining the government’s social distancing guidelines.

“My administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, avoid discretionary travel, and avoid eating and drinking at bars, restaurants, and public food courts,” Trump said.

That the president is taking the outbreak seriously is certainly a step in the right direction. If people listen to Trump and follow experts’ advice, that may actually save lives.

But Trump is also interested in seizing the narrative of the pandemic now, attempting to frame himself as a president who competently handled the crisis, even referring to himself in Wednesday’s press conference as a “wartime president.”

He’s also trying to erase his early rhetoric and response. Trump proclaimed during Tuesday’s press conference that “I’ve always known this is a real — this is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

CNN ran a segment Wednesday highlighting the disconnect between Trump’s public statements now and what he’s been saying the past six weeks. Trump fired off this tweet a short time later: “I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the ‘borders’ from China - against the wishes of almost all. Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!”

It’s good that Trump is now taking the Covid-19 pandemic seriously, but it is simply not the case that he did so from the start. His own actions and public statements demonstrate this.

As the media continues to cover the story, it’s important to hold the president accountable for his actions — and inactions. Trump lost valuable time ignoring expert calls to act. He also actively spread misinformation. Real people’s lives were harmed and we shouldn’t forget it. Here’s a look back at Trump’s evolution over the two months.

Trump gutted the government’s pandemic response capability and then downplayed the seriousness of an ensuing pandemic
As my colleague German Lopez
detailed last week, two years ago Trump and then-National Security Adviser John Bolton disbanded a White House agency that was set up by the Obama administration to lead federal preparation and coordination for outbreaks like the one the world is now trying to contend with.

But during a news conference last week, Trump pretended he had no involvement in that decision, saying, “I didn’t do it. We have a group of people ... I don’t know anything about it.”

Yes, that WHO.

Your distortions aside, they were way out in front of Trump with their announcements. I gave you the timeline.

Right?
Please stop, no matter the facts presented, they only listen to Trump and his state ran media sites and radio broadcasts - as they claim to be the smarter people in the room

It takes organized labor to produce wealth (on the scale necessary to support a society). Whether that is a co-op, guild or business. And regardless of which organization is used, it takes capital to make it productive.
Obviously false since noncapitalist societies that held wealth in forms other than capital achieved tremendous productivity.

Keep yammering on about blue states deaths just like you did about the 18k deaths under Obama.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.
Fake news - the urban democratic controlled cities led the country in infections and now that they have peaked, they have now passed the torch to the rural areas that tended to vote for Trump. Correlation is not causation.

So why didn’t rural areas that voted for Clinton get hit as hard?
