Why did ToadPOTUS do NOTHING for so long

Our excellent intelligence services began briefing the Toad on the existential threat posed by Covid19 in early January, before there were any cases detected in the USA.

 

Toad hates anything intelligent (it always exposes his stupidity), so he placed a call to his dear friend Xi Jinping, Xi assured the Toad China had everything under control and this was just another nasty flubug.

 

So lil donny ignored the warnings and held campaign rallies on 9 Jan in Toledo and 14 Jan in Milwaukee. Meanwhile, several Republicans who also heard the intel briefings began unloading their stocks to preserve what GOPers all hold more dear than people, THEIR MONEY.

 

Had Putin not slithered the Toad into the White House, a competent President would have AT LEAST contacted the NSA and CDC Emergency Pandemic Response Teams to see what needed to be done, but of course Toad could not do this as he had FIRED all the doctors and research scientists on both those teams back in 2018. He fired them because they had been established by President Obama, and our most racist President since 1864 cannot stand anything positive created by anyone who is not white, a trait that endears him to much of his base.

 

After firing those whose job it was to plan for epidemics, Toad slashed CDC funding for tracking disease in other countries by 80%, so there was little information beyond what the NSA had assembled, Republican Congresscritters were too busy saving their wealth to bother telling their constitutents (except for a few of the richer ones, I'm certain) so no alarm bells went off.

 

The whole thing was like us losing communications with Pearl Harbor in 1941 because the President had cut the RCA cables and fired all the Navy's radio operators.

On top of Trump's other instances of incompetence and negligence there is this.

Exclusive: U.S. slashed CDC staff inside China prior to coronavirus outbreak

 

WASHINGTON(Reuters) - The Trump administration cut staff by more than two-thirds at a key U.S. public health agency operating inside China, as part of a larger rollback of U.S.-funded health and science experts on the ground there leading up to the coronavirus outbreak, Reuters has learned.

Every time I think he can't sink any lower he digs another hole.

You're being a bit hard on him scout. There are only so many hours in a day and it's exhausting monitoring Fox and tweeting non stop, and that doesn't even deal with those long hard weekends of schmoozing at Mar-A-Lago.

True, but he saves plenty of time by not applying his bronzer properly and not really thinking about what he hears on Fox, just regurgitating the bumperstickers.

Of course, coming up with all his fantasys would take a lot of time - inventing the notion that he looks orange because of incandecent lights for example - THAT would've kept him pondering for WEEKS. Not sure about Chinese paying his tariffs - he probably actually thinks that's how it works, he is that stupid.

And golf. Can't forget golf. He wouldn't be as effective as he is if he didn't play golf at his very own golf clubs in Florida, NJ, and God knows where else.

Well it's really tough getting a skin shade that doesn't clash with whatever varmint is perched on his head. 🙂

Thanks. I was told the other day that Covid-19 would run from me faster than I'm running from it. 🙂

Scout is spot on. What trump is doing is trying to cover his rear, for all of his poor decisions and lack of preparedness.

Our State Governor who is a repub, and disciple of trump, is doing the same thing, not having prepared properly. Holding the crappola press conferences, and having the Dept of Health rep come out and say the same stuff as the trump bobbleheads...what they don't say: we were not prepared, we ignored all the signs, we have hardly any test kits, medical supplies, preventive wear, or the machines that we will need. And we want the public to donate to us, and help us do our jobs!

We see what is happening...you messed up. And all Us will pay for your incompetence!

Dear @Olderscout66,

Everything you said was spot on!  We have a president who is ruled by his ego and greed and devoid of compassion, intelligence, or even good common sense.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of the Republican Party have followed him down the same path--putting themselves, their families, and their money first before the good of the people (even those who voted for them). 

 

So now we find ourselves in swallowed up in this quagmire of disease and death; a situation which may have befallen us regardless of all best efforts to prevent it.  But because the alarms bells were not sounded early on (when they knew) and the Calvary had been disbanded nearly two years earlier, this catastrophe has now rolled in like a tsunami and will undoubtedly sicken and/or wipe out many good American citizens who would not have "had to" perish if only decisive action had been taken at the onset as oppose to this deadly game of "catch-up" now being played.

agreed. he is not a president-he is barely a subhuman. Now he is trying to be complimented or "applauded" as arp puts it for doing very little too late. Distraction for foul deals he is making with the power /money pigs. Our country is going down because of them /HIM.
