The Deadly Math of tRump's Denial

By ignoring his National Security advisors and DOING NOTHING for 63 days after the Covid19 threat was explained to him, Toad managed to insure we will face an epidemic of biblical proportions.

 

Even if he had STILL refused to make any move toward equiping our medical personnel with the test kits, PPE and ventilators that are now about 90% SHORT of meeting demand, a simple warning to increase our "social distancing" and stay home as much as possible WOULD have had monumential consequences for reducing the spread of the disease.

 

But Toad didn't want to hurt HIS numbers, so there was NO social distancing for 63 days. During that time, Patient Zero was idenified on 14 Feb 2020. With NO social distancing, 2.5 people would've been infected by 19 Feb and 406 infected by March 15th and around 140,000 by March 30, WHICH IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED.

 

If Toad had acted on his Security teams advice and taken action to reduce social interaction by 50% - tell people to stay home as much as possible, encourage businesses AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to allow people to work from home and cancel all major gatherings - the spread would be 1.2 infections in 5 days, 15 in 30 days and around  5000 today.

Doing then what we're doing now, the total invections should be around 200.

 

Electing a mental and moral midget will cost America thousands of unnecessary deaths. DO NOT DO THAT AGAIN!

Trump World is an alternate reality bubble where truth, facts, and logic do not apply. Those who live in the real world know Trump called the CoronaVirus a Democratic Hoax. And just last week, Trump said on national television: The Virus is under TREMENDOUS CONTROL. Really?

So true of "bubble world"!

And what, no matter how much they want to rewrite history, what does Obama, 2009, and h1n1 have to do with the current virus and trump's actions...or non actions?

Or in reality, just another "bubble world"

denial, diversion, and deflection...not addressing people's current plight!

cRITICAL POSTED-Trump World is an alternate reality bubble where truth, facts, and logic do not apply. Those who live in the real world know Trump called the CoronaVirus a Democratic Hoax.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Those in the real world don`t twist the truth-----

Politico appears to misconstrue the subject of the president’s statement, claiming that Trump “tried to cast the global outbreak of the coronavirus as a liberal conspiracy intended to undermine his first term.”

But an examination of the video and transcript show Trump actually described Democratic complaints about his handling of the virus threat as “their new hoax.”

Ain't it so true Scout. 
Two other items that would have helped also:

Testing. If you don't know who has the virus, or who is contagious, how can you  know the infectious locations, and then help to prevent the spread. All that they can track now is the after affects, if you have the virus and need hospitalization, or if you die. 
Masks. There is a renewed call for wearing masks in public. Even after the SG in Feb said they weren't needed to prevent transmission. As a quote said "my mask protects you, your mask protects me"!

And what do both of these have in common? Ignorance, no planning, and inaction by trump...neither can be promoted to help in prevention because there are not enough tests, and not enough masks...

It's that simple!

How many has trump put in jeopardy?

William posted -No, I don't feel angry or bitter from telling the truth...once again, hate is being confused with telling the truth...I suffer no such confusion, nor do some others on this site!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Trump acted within weeks after learning how serious the Corona Virus was and  beginning to spread to other places around the world from China .In January he invoke the travel ban and was called xeonophobic. Now the Dems said he didn`t act soon enough.Such hypocrites!  Compared to the swine flu and Obama/Biden administration he acted much more quickly---

Though he lamented being called a "racist" for doing so, Trump says if he hadn't hardened the U.S. borders at that point, the virus would have had gained a bigger foothold in the country.

Now, let's go to the Wayback Machine.

While American health officials declared a public health emergency on April 26, 2009, then-Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano downplayed the announcement, calling it “standard operating procedure," adding that she would rather refer to it as a "declaration of emergency preparedness." It wasn't until four months later in October, that then-President Obama himself declared an H1N1 national emergency.

CNN reported in October 2009:

 

Since the H1N1 flu pandemic began in April, millions of people in the United States have been infected, at least 20,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,000 have died, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It's really very simple.  tRump's incompetence and denial has been at the cost of hundreds of lives in America. Voters should remember that at the voting booths in November.

And now we're in the Deadly Math of tRump's Greed.

 

Trump won’t rule out that his business will benefit from emergency coronavirus legislation

Let’s just see what happens.”

That, much used response, to any yes or no question, admits the truth is not in him.

Trump says he won’t comply with key transparency measures in the coronavirus stimulus bill

The administration says it won’t provide documentation for audits into $500 billion in corporate bailout funds....

 

That bill also establishes a Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery (SIGPR) within the Treasury Department to audit and investigate half a trillion dollars in loans for large businesses. In his signing statement, Trump said that this provision raises “constitutional concerns,” adding that his administration would not comply with such an official’s request for documents....
This seems to suggest the administration believes it is the president’s duty and not that of an inspector general to ensure the funds are distributed as the law intends....
The addition of this transparency language was what ultimately swayed some Democrat senators to vote for the bill. The bill also establishes a congressional oversight panel to examine the IG’s reports....
Trump also said that he would not adhere to a second provision of the bill that would grant some congressional committee consultation for expenditures made by the State Department, Department of Veterans Affairs, and US Agency for International Development (USAID)....

dt believes the US economy belongs to him and him alone. His 'name' is 'all over' every dime. In your face, undeniable reality of Greed. Drink the koolaid, cash the check, vote for me. And that's not all.

 

Early crisis financial machinations skipped accountability norms, of necessity. Now that slippery slope is wide open for business. Normal accountability processes, and the laws thereof, do not apply. Targeted for expiration, transparency issues. He IS above the law. The virus is giving dt the opportunity of his lifetime to rape and pillage.

There is no, "We'll see" here.

*********************

The very plausible and equally sad truth of it all is that The Donald's only reason for pushing for this legislation was to create an uncheckable slush fund for himself and his wealthy buddies.  The fact that we (the peons) got anything at all (yet to be seen how that will shake out) was the Republicans' effort to keep Trump supporters and the resistant masses of the Democratic persuasion pacified.

 

In all reality, as Trump signed the stimulus package into law, his check was probably already deposited before the ink was even dry on the paper.

Thousands of Americans will needlessly DIE because gutless GOPers refused to obey their oath of allegience TO THE CONSTITUTION and refused to remove ToadPOTUS for his high crimes.

 

The Republican Party bears 100% of the resoponsibility for the dead Americans their toad will leave in his wake and not ONE of them deserves to be reelected!

 

Correct the error of 2016 - NO MORE GOPers in Office in 2021!

Speaking of numbers, after listening to the Sunday blather and rant trump press  conference, he seemed to be bragging about the new tests coming on line...

might trump be in for a big surprise?

If many, many more tests are performed, easier to take, more people tested, and more test results are released, will trump be able explain the actual number of people infected. The current number of infections may be artificially low, due to the restrictions on and lack of test kits. 

 

More testing will be good, will the results be eye opening!
