Nothing shocking re: the dems responses to this post lol

Matthew Walther

September 10, 2020

 

The fact Bob Woodward has written another book about the current occupant of the White House should be greeted with roughly the level of enthusiasm reserved for such annual or semi-annual non-events as the Biennial Conference of the American Hippotherapy Association or the Pro Bowl.

 

I would be tempted to suggest that the latest affectless, indifferently written Woodward volume is a matter of at most seasonal interest, like the early September appearance of Halloween candy in supermarkets

 

Hence my inability to get worked up about the 52-second snippet of conversation between two septuagenarians released amid a great deal of manufactured outrage on Wednesday afternoon.  

 

 

One longs for the day — who could deny its sweet inevitability? — when they rhapsodize about the decency and tolerance of the earliest eventual occupant of the Oval Office to endorse same-sex civil partnerships.

Woodward is a brilliant, well esteemed journalist that helped take down crooked Nixon.

 

Trump is a crooked politician, who is basically stupid, but with an penchant for "brand name people"

 

It was too easy.

Nothing shocking for a Toad Worshiper perhaps, but the rest of us are now able to CONFIRM that your Toad KNEW the virus was both airborne and DEADLY, yet he claims he did nothing IN ORDER TO AVOID  PANIC among the American people.  It this gutless draftdodger had been ToadPOTUS IN 1942, his speech on Pearl Harbor would have been: December 7th, 1942 - a day in which nothing much happened, so just go about your business and don't try and contact your loved ones in Honolulu, they're sleeping and do not wish to be disturbed. Bye now, and have a good day.

 

In fact, he did LESS than nothing - instead of unifying the American people to work together to stop the Pandemic, he pitted the 50 States against EACHOTHER AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, then had Jared out-bid Democratic Governors (using OUR tax dollars) and divert needed medical supplies to RED STATES. His reason was simple tRump - the disease was concentrated in BLUE STATES, so by refusing to take a NATIONAL position on stopping the virus, Toad figured he could just blame the Democratic Governors! Which is what he's done and is still doing while he encourages the GOPerGovs to pretend the Pandemic is OVER, and they can open the schools and go back to Football under the Friday Night Lights, unmasked student bodies and fully open taverns and tattoo parlors.

 

Yes, thanks to tRump and his sycophantic Governors, "Student Bodies" are taking on a whole new meaning, and his solution to SS seems to be killing off a couple hundred thousand Seniors before the election.

 

Nope, nothing we didn't suspect about tRump the Toad, only now its FACT, which his lofo base will continue to ignore along with his fidelity to Putin, misogyny and treatment of his office as a profit center for Trump Inc.

Trump's base believes every denial....every lie he tells them.    Every fact, every video presented to the public view .....his cult refuses to acknowledge or believe in.    

Appears it's our turn.   

A third of Germany supported Hitler. 

One of the last appearances Stalin made the crowd shouted "father---father" in reverence even though he was ruthless and cruel. 


ALL these dictators--murders got support.....Putin ----Kim-Jong un  - -the Ayatollah----HITLER --Musolini--Stalin--Tôjô Hideki- --Saudi-Abdullah bin Abdulaziz - Hamas---OBL---and the list of MALE leaders are  WAY LONG  

 SO now it's happening with the USA and monster Trump when even the most religious have called this demon a saint.   

  I have heard COUNTLESS credible people whether it's generals who say he's a danger,  Nobel prize winning economists ,  his own team that are no longer his defenders......Trump's aunt and sister.   All these loyal Americans say that  ,   Donald Trump is a monster. He’s an idiot, a liar, a narcissist, a sex maniac, a torturer, a xenophobe.    Come to that, he is a bully, a nepotist, an adulterer, thin-skinned, corrupt and fat.

You are right Scout.  Many of trumps right have people have turned the tide because they saw him up close and personal without the SPIN and deception.  It's obvious some can't see the emperor has no clothes.  It truly is Cult-like behavior.

I have to agree with the subject. It was pretty much a given that Trump had been informed by his intelligence services of the impact of this virus. I think what was shocking was Trump's admitting that he did nothing and planned to do nothing.

What's shocking is how Trump was stupid enough to spill the Truth to Bob Woodward, and later lie to America.

 

What is also shocking is how stupid Trump was to think and Ace reporter, who took down Nixon would not catch it.

The first is the only class of persons likely to be aware of the book's existence, namely Woodward's fellow journalists and the rapidly aging subset of upper-middle-class white liberals who will purchase and perhaps even read parts of it.

 

 

Dream on. Believing that the book and taped conversations are only known to a select few is absurd. They're being heard nationally on both TV and radio on a daily basis............and will be for some time to come. We're only 50 some days from the election and interest is high, with people home now more than normal (thanks to the pandemic), and they're paying attention. What the Woodward book is doing is peeling the outer husk off of Trump and revealing the rot within that was suspected but not confirmed. Now we're hearing it confirmed by Trump himself.

  Don't Be Shocked Trump Lied About COVID On Tape. Be Horrified That It Won't Matter

 

Wednesday confirmed something that most of us already suspected: Donald Trump knew all along exactly how deadly COVID-19 was.

 

 

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump explained to reporter Bob Woodward on February 7. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu … This is deadly stuff.”

 

 

In public, Trump was saying just the opposite.

 

 

“We only have five people,” he told Sean Hannity. “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.”

 

 

On February 11, he promised folks at a campaign rally that COVID “miraculously goes away.” Three days later, he assured Geraldo Rivera that “we only have, basically, 12 cases and most of those people are recovering and some cases fully recovered."

 

 

On February 24, he panic-tweeted, “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries. CDC & World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

 

 

Two days later, he told reporters, “When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

 

 

Two days after that, to the delight of his supporters, he was branding COVID as a “new hoax” peddled by the Democrats.

 

 

“I wanted always to play it down,” we now know he confessed to Woodward on March 19. “I still like playing it down.”

 

 

The shock here isn’t that Trump was lying. Nor that Woodward refused to disclose the truth in real-time. Nor even that the president’s lies contributed to the spread of COVID, which has now killed nearly 200,000 Americans, infected more than six million, and sent the nation spiraling into economic and social chaos.

 

 

The shock is that Trump’s support will barely budge.

 

 

This story will rage for a few days, as did the news that our commander in chief calls our troops as "losers" and "suckers." As did the news that he attempted to extort Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden. As did the news that he considers white supremacists “very fine people.” And so on.

 

 

Every week — sometimes every day — new revelations emerge that affirm what we already know: Trump is a lazy, inept, bigot with a wounded ego where his heart should be, and a cash register for a conscience.

 

 

What matters isn’t this reality, but the fact that a rabid minority of our citizens have become inoculated against it. They live in a cultish bubble of partisan propaganda filled with protective buzz words and talking points, a hivemind fueled by rage, paranoia and shame. For decades, right-wing media demagogues have made billions of dollars exploiting their anguish.

 

 

This is why the president of the United States can lie — without consequence — to Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson and Geraldo Rivera, even about a virus that could kill their viewers. Trump didn’t lead a movement in 2016. He merely inherited an audience that had been vaccinated against unwelcome truths years ago.

 

 

On days like this, when we come face to face (yet again) with the catastrophic iniquity of Trump, my mind turns to the description of Kurtz that Joseph Conrad offers in "Heart of Darkness": “I saw the inconceivable mystery of a soul that knew no restraint, no faith, and no fear, yet struggling blindly with itself.”

 

 

More than that, I think about the forces that led us to award so much power to such an empty man, and have induced so many of our public servants to ignore his abuses, and sanction his lethal efforts to set us against one another.

 

 

Conrad was wise to that peril as well. “Your strength,” he observed, “is just an accident arising from the weakness of others.”

 

 

Every citizen of good faith will have to stand against that weakness in the weeks to come, or America will become something far more savage and dangerous than a democracy.
