This is an entirely reasonable reaction to the catastrophic Trump press conference at the CDC this afternoon.

“The CDC presser was among the most frightening Trump appearances I’ve ever seen, on the level of Charlottesville — a horrifying and surprising (even for him!) callousness in the face of death and suffering, an inability to see anything through a lens other than his own ratings”

Enough is enough. If you still plan to vote for this clown this fall, shame on you.

If you fall for the inane rantings of the NYT columnist whining about Orange man bad on Twitter then shame on you.

I watched the insane ramblings of the president of the United States this afternoon. It was shockingly horrific and every American should be ashamed of the fact that that clown is president. Shut the fvck up about the New York Times and try to defend that a$$hole president of yours instead.

Sez the buffoon who will gladly welcome a pudding brained molesting puppet like Biden as the alternative to Trump.

Pipe down hypocrite, your hairy, pimpled, smelly partisan fake lawyer ass is showing and nobody needs to see that.

Here’s a link to the full video of Trump’s CDC press conference yesterday. Every American should be shocked and disgusted by this. It is not possible to rationalize or defend this. It’s telling that the Trump sycophants replying here are not even trying to do so.

In a couple hours Jill Biden will wake up Creepy/SleepyJoe, you know, the guy is going to be The Dumbocrat's nominee for President and because he puts the Dem in Dementia say, "good morning honey ... I'm your wife, and my name is Jill. Trump is your President. You are running in the Democrat primary. You were Obama's VP, but he wont endorse you. Don't talk about the Ukraine, Corn Pop, the hair on your legs or Dog Faced Pony Soldiers today. Also, don't threaten to fight anyone, you were hiding behind me and your sister when a protester started yelling at you. Please don't try to make people in wheelchairs stand up or remember what City/State you're in - actually, it would be best if you don't talk at all, just put on your nice aviator glasses and smile. Finally, what ever you do try not to sniff any more little girls, or grope any women!"

And you're going to lecture me about rationalizing and defending the ability of Trump to run the country?

Like I said, notice how the Trump defenders cannot defend his real catastrophic press conference at the CDC yesterday and keep trying to deflect the discussion to other topics with a bunch of fictional bullshlt.

There was soooooo much confusion when this story first broke yesterday.
My apologies for posting what was thought to be on the mark, from CBS.

He’s a sociopath.

Personally i don't like to watch Trump speak for very long .. it's just becomes to cringe worthy... no matter what he's talking about.
But i watched a few mintes here and there and some of the clips others pulled out of this intereviw and ...welll...
it just sounds like more Trump.
no better no worse.
if anyone is expecting him to be FDR reassuring the nation with a fireside chat i don't know what you're smoking.
Trump, is a shallow, classless guy, someone you don't really want to talk to at a funeral of a good friend, or at the bedside of your dying mother.

he might be able to keep the lights on at the hospital but if youre' looking for compassionate leadership, you'll be disappointed.

if he's appoints good doctors, and OKs reasonable recommendations for actions and gets out of the way. that's fine.
Trump is Trump.
The media and Trump-haters aren't helping the nation or the sick to pretending that he's made matters worse.
When as far as i can tell Trump hasn't.
Unless folks were really hoping for a shoulder to cry on and some inspiring words to make the nation feel better. Sorry you got the wrong guy for that.

The problem isn’t just the lack of compassion and support for the victims of the virus (not wanting to let the people off the cruise ship because they’ll make his numbers look bad) or the totally false information he was spewing about the virus and response (saying anyone who wants to get tested can get tested, a blatant lie). Probably even more serious is the rambling insanity of much of what he said: Comparing the COVID-19 test to the Ukraine call transcript? Saying that he was getting the data on the number of cases from Fox News? Bragging about the ratings for his Fox News town hall? Calling Jay Inslee a “snake”? Saying that “it doesn’t bother me” when he was asked about the risk of virus transmission by having more rallies? Saying that he has a “natural ability” to understand everything about this virus (right after admitting that he was surprised to find out how many people die from the flu)? Yes, I’ve understood from day 1 that Trump is an unstable idiot, but to see that fact manifest itself at a time like this should unnerve every American.
