I dont doubt HRC or anyone mocking Trump would take hydrochrolonique if they were in the ICU and the doctor thought it could be their last chance.

What's funny about this tweet is Hillary's complete lack of self awareness in that she still doesn't realize that she is one of the most despised political figures of the past 30 years, easy.

Who the hell would take advice from her?

Someone who lost to a gameshow host?
Exactly, wasn’t she recently blaming Sanders for her loss? Everyone’s fault but hers.

Whoever runs her twitter for her should’ve just posted that from their own account. If I’m not supposed to take Trump’s advice then I sure as hell won’t take it from the person who lost to him.

50 something posts since joining. ONE since Oct '17.
That's the formula for a shit-stirrer. They can just fuck off.
Not necessarily. EviLore EviLore sent out a mass email last week so it’s possible that some people who thought GAF was dead but didn’t go to Ree got the email and came back. The list from P phoony17 does omit some important events though, such as the now-deleted-but-forever-archived WHO tweet on 14th Jan stating that Chinese officials confirmed that the virus can’t be transmitted from human to human.

And his response is to come back and post one message. In the politics section. Giving shit to Trump. On a video game forum.

🤔🤔🤔🤔

Yeah I meant that as a general statement, i.e. not everyone returning recently is a Reeeeeturner. H HawksWinStanley for example seems fairly normal. P phoony17 definitely seems like a shit stirrer though. His list basically lied through omission.

This ad sums up old Trumpy boy pretty well.

Right out of his own mouth. He simply refuses to stfu. Well he has a TON of such idiotic quotes during this pandemic that I imagine will be used by his opposition.

He really is like an old white Kanye West.

Anthony Fauci has to step and correct the president yet again. The April 12th deadline is just as loony as when Trump said that we have 15 cases and those 15 will be down to zero in the coming days.

Are you cunts fucking stupid? It’s a spliced together video of out of context snippets. Seriously, can you even tie your own shoelaces?

It's not out of context. Watch the full videos on YouTube.

The splicing makes it appear as though he called the Chinese Virus a hoax when he did not. There’s something seriously wrong with you idiots who keep falling for such blatant propaganda.

Edit: It’s Share Blue propaganda you fucking amoebae

What's funny to me is how Trump is executing solutions that would have been considered lefty pinko commie bullshit 4 years ago, but for some reason (some) liberals are still opposing everything he does no matter what.

Just like observing how certain people act during the Clinton/Bush/Obama years and contrasting that to how they act now, really is illuminating on who cares about policy and who's just here to root for a team.
Yeah it doesn’t matter what Trump does. They want Trump to fail. They’re trying so hard to find a needle in a haystack-

Liberals are born to ruin any positivity. They’re like feminists

If a meteor was screaming towards Earth set to end all life on the planet and Trump personally shot it out of space, Libs would be complaining

They’re pieces of crap

Let's not generalize all those who call themselves liberals now - that's wasn't the point of my post.

I wonder what the excuse is going to be when the case load reaches 100,000 and 1000+ deaths? Isn't he paying attention to the explosion of cases in Louisiana? Doesn't he understand that it hasn't peaked yet or run its course through the rest of country?

Enough with the conspiracies. This is an airborne pandemic, the democrats and the media don't have any control over how fast or where its spreading.

Neither does Trump.

Nobody will listen, and if you force people to do what you want with government action, you will ignite a civil unrest. Best thing is to handle the curves and try to control the worst areas first case by case in hopes to slow it down. An ebb and flow.

The media could do a better job with writing articles to aide in this situation convincing people to stay home, rather than the fucking fear mongering mental gymnastics OMB no matter what he does politics they’re playing.

*Checks for mention of early China travel ban decision for which he was criticized at the time* Nothing... Cool! Definitely no agenda here.
Yeah love the retroactive second guessing, just support the president, that candidate you like, they probably would have been just as bad or worse.

The evidence suggests that the virus is dangerous to people with certain medical conditions and those over 70 years old (and a much smaller danger to those under 70). So obviously shutting down the entire country indefinitely is a bad idea. We can all agree on that. We’d hurt ourselves more than the virus can. We all agree.

But the media will continue to hype every coronavirus death, as if these are the only deaths that count and the only deaths that were preventable. We will NOT get BREAKING NEWS alerts for the regular flu deaths (so far this season, more than 23,000, compared to 533 from the coronavirus), car accident deaths, or all the deaths from kids choking on hot dogs and guns in Chicago

Only coronavirus deaths are considered newsworthy.

Anybody who likes CNN, NBC or the mainstream media is garbage compared to me. Yes you are!

Your COVID-19 numbers are a bit off. US deaths have risen to over 1,000 and the number of cases just keeps getting higher and higher.


The country is not going back to normal anytime soon. I know it sucks, but it's the reality of the situation.

In your zeal to correct people you fail to grasp the message. Coronavirus cases could be off by a factor of 10 and still not match the deaths caused by everyday shit nobody cares about and would never shut down the entire economy over.

And you don't seem to understand why it's necessary and why COVID-19 needs to be taken more seriously than the typical seasonal flu. And that's not me saying that. That the medical experts saying that.


The new coronavirus causing COVID-19 has led to more than 454,000 illnesses and more than 20,550 deaths worldwide. For comparison, in the U.S. alone, the flu (also called influenza) has caused an estimated 38 million illnesses, 390,000 hospitalizations and 23,000 deaths this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

That said, scientists have studied seasonal flu for decades. So, despite the danger of it, we know a lot about flu viruses and what to expect each season. In contrast, very little is known about the new coronavirus and the disease it causes, dubbed COVID-19, because it's so new. This means COVID-19 is something of a wild card in terms of how far it will spread and how many deaths it will cause.

"Despite the morbidity and mortality with influenza, there's a certainty … of seasonal flu," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a White House press conference on Jan. 31. "I can tell you all, guaranteed, that as we get into March and April, the flu cases are going to go down. You could predict pretty accurately what the range of the mortality is and the hospitalizations [will be]," Fauci said. "The issue now with [COVID-19] is that there's a lot of unknowns." (During the week ending March 14, 15.3% of tests for a respiratory illness turned out positive for flu, compared with 21.1% the week prior.)


It's those unknowns and lack of knowledge that is forcing this shutdown and it's why things can't just go right back to normal so soon. And the fact the number of deaths in the US keep climbing so rapidly despite this mass shutdown should cause everyone to be a bit more cautious. Opening everything back up too soon could could result in a health/economic disaster even worse than the one we are already experiencing.

Sir, you are dangerously and haphazardly spreading truthful misinformation. Just because your facts hold up to scrutiny doesn’t mean you can push them into the public because that would endanger people at risk. Don’t be a murderer. Stay At home, wait for the Pelosi / Cortez package and if you lose your job, suicide or otherwise remember Trump did it to you.

Deep, he would do himself a greater help if he would just shut up! His mouth is his biggest problem. He's always putting the cart in front of the horse with this thing.

This virus isn't his fault, but every time he starts whining about Obama, or things he could have already been doing or framing every thing his Administration has done as a historic triumph..........It comes off like a con.

He can't sell this thing. More importantly, he doesn't have to. Look how popular Cuomo in NY has become, he's hovering around 80% and all he delivers is bad news. It's called a disaster bump and Bush had 90% after 9-11.

During times like this the people stand with the President. But if he keeps congratulating himself for the job he's doing while the case loads keep rising, and unfortunately more people lose their battles with Covid19 he does injury to himself. The news media will gladly give him all the rope he needs to hang himself.

Mr President, shut up! Stop running your mouth about this when you are surrounded by people better qualified to respond to the press. Be the Comforter in Chief. Stop pretending to be a doctor, stop pretending you have this under control. Let the American machine take over. Aid these desperate governors and they will evangelize the good things you do without your daily self aggrandizement.

60% of the nation agree that he is doing a good job. The media needs to check themselves first, and stop with their bullshit "reporting" and "baiting".

Have you watched any press conferences? He always lets the more qualified than him answer and explain things.

He has to be the bigger man right now. He can't allow himself to be baited. He has to find a way to stop making this all about him and rise above it.

And once he stops doing that he would have taken a lot of pressure off himself and his administration. He's wrong to say it would be hard to complain about his response. There is no perfect response to a pandemic, but every time he frames his response that way it just sounds crazy.

Is it fair to call it a deadline? I actually don't know on this one. I saw the interview in which he said, "I'd love for things to be back to normal by Easter" and the tweet that said "the cure can't be worse than the disease" (paraphrasing both), but did he ever set a deadline for "returning to normal" in more concrete terms than that?

Nah, it's Trump.

He is going to tell them to shut the fuck up and that they should do better by the American people, since they have a responsibility themselves to as well.

That is what a damned leader does. Not pussyfoot around those CCP/Establishment hacks.

From what I heard, the timetable was not a "deadline", it was to "see where they were at to make a decision on how to proceed with the next steps". He is taking a optimist route, while the MSM are trying to continue their fear mongering and hysteria engineering, sowing discord per usual.

If he were doing what they are doing now, those slimy unethical bastards would be spewing the opposite.
