    Whereas, of course, the real Satan personified is Hillary Clinton. Every right winger knows that. You're just mad because the characterization fits Trump so much better.

    Itís what they do.

    The also routinely fall for previously discredited right wing memes.

    Talk radio, Fox and the trash blogs all know that their audience has a very short attention span, knows next to nothing about history, world affairs or government, and is easily sold just about anything as long as it is packaged to confirm a pre existing belief set. They donít remember (or choose not to), when one of their memes gets discredited. So they repeat it on cue.

    Seen it called Wuhan Coronavirus, Chinese Coronavirus, Covid-19, Novel Coronavirus, and multiple variations from sources all over the globe.

    Who gives a damn? The virus doesn't care where it came from, it just makes people sick and kills. We need to drop the petty nonsense and pull it together. This entire thread is so stupid.

    Trump gives a damn, because he can demonize China and fear monger to his fans, while pandering to their prejudices.

    Which is why he keeps trying to wrap China around it. You know that as well as anyone else here does.

    This is a typical Trump play. We’ve seen his act for four years now.

    Okay let me name some of the ways that the right, as influenced by Fox and Trump, has managed to undermine national security, create fear, instill a sense of hatred for Hispanics and people of color and elevated the status of people like Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman.

    Remember the 'love letter' that came from Kim Jong-un? Remember how Trump proudly walked 20 steps into N. Korea to shake hands and have a photo op with a dictator that murders and imprisons innocent men, women and children? Remember how Trump expected he would get a Nobel Peace Prize for that? All that came out of that was more prominence and servility of the people of N. Korea to their Leader. Yes, it was great publicity, for Kim. North Korea had a visit from the very first sitting US president since the Korean War. Was elevating Trump's own status with N. Korea helpful to the United States? He thought so. Kim Jong-un was the enemy, remember how Trump threatened N. Korea with 'fire and fury'? He made them enemy #1 and then felt he had prevailed over N. Korea when he victoriously stepped over the 38th parallel. You believed it, right? This was a national security threat by giving N. Korea official acknowledgement by a sitting US president, it elevated the status of Kim Jong Un and made him stronger in the eyes of his people.

    Now let me be clear about the specific departments and patriots to our country that have served the US unfailingly, fastidiously and devotedly for decades whom Trump has chosen to demonize, destroy or obfuscate into the mysterious 'deep state' just for your benefit. John Brennan, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Alex Vindman, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Ambassador William Taylor, Fiona Hill, George Kent, Michael McKinley, and many others. These were all non-partisan career officials whom Trump described as 'deep state' or 'Obama hold-overs', it's simply not true.

    What Trump has sought from the first day of his administration was to minimize the role of career officials. In the foreign service, 45 percent of the 166 ambassadors serving under Trump are political appointees chosen based on loyalty and campaign contributions, the highest rate in history. In short, Trump got rid of anyone who would disagree with him and appoint only 'yes' men to do his bidding, and that has been what's destroying us from the inside out.
    Don't change the subject. You claimed the descriptive, "Chinese" was used to rile up Trump's base, but an even cursory look at disease descriptives shows the place of origen is a fairly common practice to identify them. Here are just a few of the many:

    West Nile Virus. ...
    German Measles. ...
    Ross River Fever. ...
    Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever. ...
    Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever. ...
    Marburg Virus Disease. ...
    Lassa Fever.

    You're just having a partisan fantasy.

    Do you actually think I care what demented left wingers call Trump? I'm just pointing out the glaring hypocrisy here. I don't have time to be mad when this Chinese virus is about to kill us all.

    The only disease that you listed that would possibly qualify as being detrimental to an entire country is German measles which was named in 1866 and decades prior to the CDC revisions of their disease-naming policies. The rest you listed have no significance whatsoever to the topic of naming a disease that may be construed as being racist.

    The entire point seems to have flown right over your head if you listed 'West Nile Virus'

    Absolutely, how in the world could you say that any one of those you listed can be compared to naming coronavirus as 'Chinese' ?

    Do you see some race or ethnicity in the ones you listed? Tell me which one denotes a race of people? Are you getting the gist of this yet?

    West Nile Virus. ...
    Ross River Fever. ...
    Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever. ...
    Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever. ...
    Marburg Virus Disease. ...
    Lassa Fever.

This virus is the same 'corona' that caused SARS and MERS. Coronavirus is pretty common all over the world. This one is a deviation from the same virus. Several doctors are referring to it as 'Novel-Coronavirus' rather than Covid-19.
    But, but, but, didn't this strain of the coronavirus begin in China? Aren't the most infections in China, aren't the most deaths in China. Didn't we trace its origin to China. Makes more sense to call in the Chines Coronavirus than the Trump Coronavirus as many democrats and media have done.
