    They sure are convinced it's the same.
    Trump November 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

    Trump as President of the United States March 2020:
    “I don't take responsibility at all”

    They're implicitly claiming "orange man bad" is the same as "black man bad". They do believe Trump suffers "racist" oppression. They would like to openly claim "white man bad". But everyone would instantly see that for the racism it is. By employing 'orange man bad', there's a veil before the racism.

    We know criticism is not about Trump being orange, nor about him being white.

    There were "free runners" hitting every Viking ball carrier on about every play who just did not get blocked. Otis Taylor was the very tall receiver you describe.

    In general, the Chiefs were larger than the Vikings at every strength position.

    The following year, the Vikes played the Chiefs again and beat them. Coaching and preparation make a difference.

    Just another painful memory that sometimes bubbles to the surface for me.

    Anyway, this real world situation is a bit different in that the Coronavirus threat was not expected. A scheduled football opponent is.

    Defenses, like a vaccine, cannot be created until the specific threat is encountered. I suppose in that way, the current virus threat and the 3-4 defense of the Chiefs, are parallel.
    Good analogy. Trouble is that we live in a very different world today where we are getting away from being what used to be called "manly" and football is too brutish for many liberal/progressive males and certainly the females here don't give a whit about football, so a football analogy goes way over their heads.

    Today we have a story of 430,000 people coming here from Wuhan just since China first DISCLOSED the outbreak.

    Some 430,000 people flew from China to US after coronavirus first detected: report | Fox News

    About 430,000 people have flown on direct flights from China to the United States since Chinese officials first disclosed the outbreak of what is now the novel coronavirus to world health officials on New Year’s Eve, according to a new report published Saturday.
    Note that this is a HUGE amount of Chinese people flying here between the time China DISCLOSED the outbreak and Trump locked them down! It is inconceivable that MILLIONS of people wouldn't have flown to and from Wuhan well BEFORE this time and after the virus was REALLY discovered in November. This is really the key for me and why noting at all could have been by Trump or anyone else because infected people were already here long before China said a word. I am baffled that logical thinking humans cannot understand and agree with this.

    Instead, they say like some evangelical, "Well, if that was true why didn't we have lots of infections earlier?" and just dismiss the FACT that Chinese people flew here well before China ADMITTED to the virus and after they knew about it which is undisputed was in November and not January.

    One doesn't have to know the answer to why there weren't cases earlier except to say that we can't know there is a "turquoise frog" kills people until we know that it was a "turquoise frog" and not the flu. IOW, how can a doctor or hospital test for the China virus when they didn't know there was such a thing? Since they couldn't, all those people that were hospitalized and died before January were marked down as having the flu.

    Their cowardly, lying coverups are being supported by the sycophant propagandists acting as unquestioning stenographers to spread their revisionist history.

    In the meantime, we are STILL a Federal system of government and the STATES are the entities that should have been preparing for this thing all along.

    Lying butt holes!
    That is why we are called the United STATES of America and why there is no popular vote. The states are independent entities and as we can see, Cuomo and other governors have taken it upon themselves to not allow chloroquine and Cuomo was the one that spent 750 million on some solar thing instead of masks. The same people who then want Trump to get them.

    Somebody tried to say mocking him for his makeup was the same as messing with somebody because for the color of the skin they were born with.

    Then someone said it wasn't makeup but rosacea. Which make your skin red, not orange.

    I agree that it's a dog whistle.

    But their hero is still a man that wears makeup every day.

    No one is an opponent of Trump because of his skin color. You act like his skin color matters, is relevant, and then act all offended when someone points out that's racist. Typical.
    every meme that disfavors the left is a dog whistle to your side. its totally unwarranted and getting rather old. no one cares.

    A LOT more Americans are going to die than needed to, and somehow Trump supporters try to pretend like that's our fault for daring to criticize dear leader.
    The reason why more people are going to die with coronavirus exposure is because of the scientists who've instituted this extreme social distancing program to stop the spread. Social distancing doesn't prevent anyone from contracting coronavirus and, because of emphasis on spread, the crisis will be artificially prolonged (to the date a vaccine is found) and that artificial lengthening will kill more people. Thanks scientists.

Social distancing doesn't protect those with pre-existing conditions to the virus nor does it make allowances for those who are asymptomatic or have slight symptoms to the virus.' cabse5 04/09/20

    Lol, I've heard some dumb arguments from Trump cultists but this might be one of the dumbest. The scientists are wrong! Americans should huddle in as close to each other as possible to prevent the spread of the virus!!
