Like I said, elect a clueless TV game show host as president and this is the sort of clusterfvck you get.
There is no CDC fiasco just a partisan Resistance zealot spouting Orange man bad propaganda.

ďI donít need to have the numbers double because of the people on that ship,Ē he said. Trump did say he would defer to the medical experts and Pence later said the ship would be brought to a U.S. port.

The legislation Trump signed at the White House provides federal public health agencies with money for vaccines, tests and potential treatments and helps state and local governments prepare and respond to the threat.

Other countries have quarantined ship passengers on board for weeks but Trump has only the most cruel and venal motives for suggesting we might avoid inflating the number of people infected by importing them. The President continued that he would defer to the medical experts on the matter but that is conveniently truncated by Resistance zealots. It's the same ham fisted editing condoned by blind Trump haters to manufacture his supposed support for white supremacists at Charlottesville despite his clear statement he wasn't referring to them.

But in Resistance speak a lie becomes true with repetition.

It's a constant theme of Democrats that any problem can be solved by increased Federal spending except when Trump signs off on an additional $8 billion in funding to fight the Corona virus he is still an incompetent game show host.

Thoughts?
A real Trump supporter wouldn't have assumed the worst. Do you really know why he cancelled that visit? Many important medical professionals have been telling the public to calm the **** down. Panic isn't helpful, except to Trump haters and the MSM. Italy has hundreds dead, we have 22. Look at our population differences. You tell me if our measures have been ineffective. I don't think so. Trumps actions are praise-worthy, because there is no way to know when and where the virus will pop up. You can't control everything, and to expect the President to is galactically ridiculous.

Trump didnít offer any public health justification for keeping the people on the ship. His one and only reason for wanting to do so was his objection to having to include the sick people on the ship in reported US cases. He said that twice. The rationalizations involved in trying to defend him here are laughable. He essentially confessed to having no concern for the actual health of the people on that ship. As with everything else, all he cares about is himself. The biggest con he pulled is convincing a bunch of rubes that he actually cares about people.

And, by the way, I’m not freaking out. I’m going to work every day and I think the panic buying and overreactions are unwarranted. That said, a lot of the panic I do see could be alleviated if Trump were capable of talking and acting like an actual competent leader. Unfortunately, he isn’t capable of that.
Why is it that the left hangs on Trumps every word? I mean, come on, you say EVERYTHING he says is a LIE! My attitude is that words means nothing, especially from politicians. The left sucked up 100% of Obamas BS talking points, and he laughed at you behind your back.

Words mean nothing to me, actions, and results, do.

Obama did not keep anyone from panicking, his sycophants in the media controlled what people worried about, and didn't worry about. They tell people what to think about and talk about on a daily basis.

The media is driving the panic, and FOX is right there doing it with them.

Trump is doing fine; if you need or expect ANY President to be the primary source of information and/or instructions on Covid-19 or any crisis you are stupid. The CDC f'ed up with the test and FDA policies hindered any outside agency from bringing one public. Still, it is on a better timeline than Obunghole's CDC's response to H1N1 and overall, there is no way that any administration could screw a pandemic response worse than that.

Let's revisit in 6 or 7 months and see where we are . . . My prediction is Covid-19 will have waned and will be a distant memory, just like every other leftist churned "Trump's done now" hoax.

Look at this chart. When it was compiled we were still over a week away from Obunghole declaring a national health emergency:



Where was the stock crash then, where was the hours of news coverage of every sniffle and cough in nursing homes?????

Even more to the point, were was the outrage when Obozo was President, when the CDC said that the 1 million infected people mark had been reached in June and only 5000 tests had been run thru the CDC?

Where was the outrage when only 1000 H1N1 test kits (each kit has 600 individual tests in it) had been shipped by September, (with most going abroad) five months after people began getting sick?

Compare that to this event, HHS Sec. Azar said that, "We will have by the end of this weekend over 1.2 million tests around America in public health labs as well as in private and commercial labs, and that is scaling up by the millions, ramping up rapidly."

And before you say, Azar had to correct VP Pence, I'll remind you of what the idiot Biden said a month into H1N1; ďWhen one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft.Ē . . .

Why don't you just shut up and sit down and stop being an ass?
Bumping so I donít forget.

I wanted to repost this sentence from American.
