Still, on the whole and given the practical limits, the President has handled the pandemic well enough. Certainly nothing his "after the fact" critics have said suggesting that they had better ideas nor would have done better.As far as how "bad" this is, if you mean in terms of electoral impact, it will be minimal. The nation's attention span is short in any case, and the rest will be confirmation bias. If a voter likes Trump, the voter will believe him. If the voter does not like President Trump, he. won't. If the voter is indifferent he or she will most likely shrug and get on with life.
Well said. Biden's and pelosi's rhetoric in the first few weeks of the pandemic spoke volumes of their ignorance. Once a statement is caught on video it makes a person look like an ass when the truth is revealed
@Dancing_Dude Niether of them defunded the CDC or threw away Obama's pandemic plan.
@OddBeMe My point is while Trump was tacking action by banning incoming flights from China, Chuckle Boy and Nancy girl and Slow Joe were slamming Trump for being a racist while promoting large crowds to visit China Town and anew York. Trump was trying to stop the virus from spreading while the Democrats were promoting the spread of the virus.Why can't people like you comprehend that. Maybe you are so controlled by your hatred of Trump that you can't or won't admit Trump was taking action while the Democrats were outbpartying
@Dancing_Dude Right, doing the wrong racist shit. And still hasn’t initiated a mandatory mask policy. That’s really the only thing we can do.
How is the question of wearing a mask remotely related to racism?
@Dancing_Dude I give. How is wearing a mask related to racism?
@Dancing_Dude- is a mask akin to wearing blackface somehow? Maybe we should check with West Virginia’s governor...
@Girther10 Don’t see the parallel there... but no. Blackface is racist. Not wearing masks is anti-social and anti-American.
So how many times have YOU worn blackface? Too many to count?
@night- I am fascinated by your rhetoric on these pages. You always have a mix of word choices that employ little used words like maladroit and you use metaphors that offer unusual visual perceptions. I always learn as much about effective writing from you as I do about whatever the substance of the narrative happens to be. Your words are enjoyable to read and I just want to say how much I appreciate your generous time spent here. I hope you hang here a bit longer...
Like the needle/sledgehammer vision... haha
@Girther10 Well thanks. As to my use of words, blame it on mom. Other kids got read bedtimes stories, mom used to read me a thesaurus. Kidding. It is just the habit of years as a writer and political analyst. They used to love me on the high school newspaper where - I kid you not - I wrote a piece on the Warsaw Pact. Suffice to say, my editor/classmate opted not to publish that one.Anyhow, thanks for the kind words. Always good to hear from you and I hope this finds you well.
@nightdrot- how many people out here in voterland do you think understand the reality of the impossible choices Trump had to make, and how hard those decisions were? I hav confidence in the American people, and fingers crossed that they are prudent on Nov. 3... and take into account the things you highlighted here..
The thesaurus reference seems not that unlikely.. I might have believed it...
@Girther10 Well, I have less sympathy for Mr. Trump than you do. In fact, for all the sturm und drang about this being the most important election in our lifetimes, in fact the choice between the two men is actually not that great.See also my response to this question where I indirectly address the issue.As to whether or not the public will grasp the complexity of the issues that Mr. Trump (rather reasonably well" addressed, my hunch is that, for the most part, the public will decide according to their partisan views and immediate circumstances.Trump voters will say he mastered things. Biden voters that Mr. Trump botched it. The "in-betweens" will vote their circumstances at the time. If they are living reasonably well, they will assume that Trump handled matters well. If not, they will not.
Ooops, here is the link: Trumptards, is it just owning libs? ↗
My ears are burning...
Btw- it’s very telling that you, a stupid Trump-hater , can’t just simply make a statement, regardless of how idiotic, but you can’t resist following your clown-like statement with another statement about those who don’t agree with you. Talk about irrelevant partisan hackery... lol
No, he lied and did nothing. If he actually did something about Covid, then this wouldn’t be so bad.

Because his base is far from a majority of Americans. Unfortunately, stoking fear also works.
@Anonymous- it doesn’t matter now or before because none of those things you listed are actual fact. Everyone knows that, but you, apparently. Lol Really? Harsher torture for pows? Or attacking civilians during wartime? You are on some alternate universe to believe such drivel. “Most morally bankrupt man in politics”... lol who told you that? Your mama? That is absurd and only you would allow such tripe in your stupid narrative. You’re mostly wrong about everything, of course. That’s why you have o problem making such ignorant words as anonymous, you know you’ll never be held accountable for such epic stupidity.
And of course you post about the covid, but show a pic of Trump viewing the hurricane damage... lol #stupidfuck
@goaded- who has a base that includes the majority of Americans? Umm I think NO one obv... lol
I can't read the last three messages, because they've blocked me.
@Girther10 So this isn't Trump saying "You have to take out their families. They care about their lives. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families." www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHUfOWrA45A&ab_channel=CNNThis isn't Trump saying to use "interrogation tactics worse than water-boarding." Being told such actions would be illegal, then said "I would go stronger." "We should go for waterboarding and should go for tougher than waterboarding." www.youtube.com/watchSounds like you're the dumb one. Don't even pay attention to what you're supporting.
YOU don’t know what I’m supporting. End of convo.
@Girther10 You're supporting Trump. Right now in these replies. And when faced with evidence that you made a poor choice, you refused to acknowledge it, because you can't admit you were wrong. Coward.
When Trump banned incoming flights from China back in January he was called a racist by Schumer, Pelosi and Biden. Remember when Pelosi told people to not be racist and visit China Town. What she did was encourage people to spread the virus.
@Dancing_Dude Pelosi isn't president so who cares about your whataboutism, red herring bullshit.What did trump do? he could've use the defense authorization act to increase testing and contact tracing. he could've promoted the wearing of masks, he could've issued social distancing guidelines earlier which could've saved nearly all lives lost to covid. he could've done all the things other countries did to successfully contain covid but he didn't. instead he chose to lie about it.He knew it was deadly, he could've taken consequential action to mitigate it, but chose to lie about it.
That applies only if he shoots a democrat.
It’s easy, just go to www.dumbshits-r-us.com for this askers address...
@Girther10 Ahh, you guys! I’d love to have you over but I still haven’t baby proofed the house yet.
Plus your mom won’t let you have people over.
And your little sister could tell us some stories about you.
Ask the relatives of the Covid Dead.
I can't ask the invisible.. My elder relatives are just pissed at putting an extra diaper on.
There are 200k families who would like to speak to you.
LOL 200,000 families? Alright, patch em through..
Yes 200,000 dead, each with a family. All believe Covid is real.
You said families, not individuals. If you're going to speak about Covid Dead, take your mask off and realize it's a small fraction compared to other respiratory diseases (Self inflicted or not). The real shit is coming next flu season.. Stay safe = Weak immune system. Damn
First, not wearing a mask won't get you antibodies. Second, each dead individual has a family. And they all believe in Covid.
