    Trump's ever-changing Corona virus narrative

    Link: "Because you are talking about a potential of up to 2.2 million and some people said it could even be higher than that. You are talking about 2.2 million deaths. 2.2 million people from this," Trump said.
    Since January there has been a systematic campaign by Trump and his supporters to dismiss this virus as no big deal and "just another flu" and anyone who says otherwise, be it scientists, journalists or otherwise, are accused of being part of a liberal conspiracy to ruin America's economy. As most of you know, yesterday Trump extended the quarantine all the way through April, and even admitted that if nothing was done, the number of deaths could far exceed 2 million. It's good news that he changed his mind from stubbornly insisting we will reopen the country by Easter, no matter what, but let's take a look at a few of the things scientists and journalists were mocked for that Trump has now come around on:

    1) This isn't just a flu, it's much more dangerous and this is a very serious pandemic.
    2) The quarantine was completely justified and is the only viable solution.
    3) Easter was way, way too early to arbitrarily lift the quarantine.
    4) Literally millions of Americans could die if this is mishandled.

    These are all things that Trump and his supporters argued were lies and hoaxes spread by scientists, journalists and Democrats. Now Trump has pulled a complete 180 and adopted all 4 positions and his supporters will now undoubtedly follow while pretending they never disagreed with any of it. Why the hell do you pieces of **** have to make EVERYTHING partisan? Why do you attack experts one day then reverse your position the next as soon as Trump acknowledges it, then don't have the balls to admit you were wrong? Can you not put aside your hate for America for one day so we can work together? No, Trump did not cause the virus and nobody has accused him of doing that, but how he handles this crisis will determine how many Americans die, and he will be graded on that in comparison to other nations.

    Now, time for Trump supporters to tell us they never opposed facts 1-4 and that suggesting so is an evil liberal lie.

    It's worse than just 1-4. Trump has trashed governors and just last night accused some hospitals of perhaps selling PPE out the back door. He suggested the media "Look into it".

    This guy is clearly not up for this crisis. This is why I refuse to watch the WH briefings on the virus. Yesterday we got all the information we need on the morning shows without Trump.

    Re: Trump's ever-changing Corona virus narrative

    Add to that his obscene comment yesterday that he will have done "a good job" if "a hundred thousand" people die.

    The list of things he and his supporters considered hoaxes and liberal conspiracies that they now believe is quite long. I do applaud him for eventually accepting the facts, but it's disgusting beyond belief that they've spent this much time trying to discredit the crisis then refuse to admit they ever did.

    He's already setting expectations super-low because I think he's finally realized how serious the situation is and how hard he's bungled its handling. 100-200k dead Americans is horrifying. We launched a 2 decade, multi-trillion dollar set of wars for 3k dead Americans, but this barely gets a shrug.

    Everyone in this story from the beginning has done 180 flip flops, often many, to include the Chinese......everyone has a different story after they experience this bug......the bug scares the crap out Humans.


    Let's stop with the "All About Trump" BS.

    And yet, while Dems and Trump haters were obsessed with their malicious, unsupported impeachment attacks on Trump, he was already taking steps to reduce the danger to American citizens from the coronavirus.

    Another day...another attack.

    yawn...

    "We did one of the great jobs, you say, "how's President Dru... Trump doing?" They go, "oh, not good, not good". They have no clue. They don't have any clue... We did something that's been pretty amazing. We're fifteen people in this massive country. And because of the fact that we won early. We won early."

    It's more than the setting of expectations. It's his way of making everything about Donald Trump's beautiful Presidency. He doesn't want these massive deaths to reflect poorly on him. He wants them to cast a glowing light.

    Sorry dude, but it is all about Trump. He's been fiddle fu**ing around while people are dying. He places blame on everyone but himself. But you know what, I place equal blame on republicans who allowed this MORON to get elected.

    As has been said before, Trump did not create the virus. His handling of it has been an F- all the way through.

    Ok, so far we have:

    "Everyone was wrong so who cares about how wrong he was!?" - 1

    "The impeachment hoax distracted him." - 1


    Let's keep a running tally. These are odd ways to defend Trump calling the things scientists and journalists have said from the beginning "hoaxes" just to accept them months later.
