I have blocked CNN stories from my Google News feed, so I didn't realize that they had become a mouthpiece for China's propaganda.  Is that *instead of*  Orange Man Bad coverage, or are they adding to their

A few thousand respirators - which may or may not be functional given China's other "donations" to Spain, Italy, and others - does not absolve them for hiding the severity and communicability of this virus until it was too late for the rest of the world.  There will come a day a reckoning after this is over, and the world won't forget how evil and duplicitous the Chinese government really is.

No, it's Trump's, for firing the people who try to tell him anything other than how great he is and for distrusting the "Deep State" intelligence community.

How much dioxin, lead and other toxins are in them?

Seems like a pretty inexpensive way to make Americans like China more than their own President.
 
2020-04-04 2:03:47 PM  
The Chinese government has facilitated a donation of 1,000 ventilators

230 of which will work as promised.
 
2020-04-04 2:04:21 PM  
They should instead donate them to all the countries that the US is hijacking supplies from.

Somehow, someway, Trump's cult will find a way to criticize this.

Maybe China created this virus so they could sell us ventilators.

Look, I didn't read the article, but the headline says "donated".

But China's probably getting rich on the shipping costs...or something.

So if they do work and are needed that'll be several thousand american lives saved. So why aren't you happy? Do you hate Americans? Why do you want thousands to die?

It probably would have been harder to hide if we hadn't cut our CDC on the ground in China staff of 47 down to 14, in addition to firing our Senior Official embedded in their infectious disease bureaucracy.

But hey, for a few months there it looked like a savings and a win for small government!

We have so few of them, anymore, though. They are still in high demand among people who want somebody to argue with.
But finding anybody willing to stand up for Trumpism who is capable of any more than inchoate grunts, or posting 4chan quality memes, is getting tough.
They don't hang around places where progs and libs are free to demolish them, or at least the smart ones don't.
And circle jerks like Free Republic are no fun.
I mean - what's really left to argue about?
We TOLD these assholes that Trump would do the same thing to America, if put in charge, that he has done to any enterprise he's been put in charge of. - crash it and bankrupt it.
it only took him three years, and our predictions have come just exactly true.
AND THEY STILL WANT TO ARGUE.

Well, that's what we got. The sincere ones have tucked tail and run off in shame, seeing how everything they promised has utterly failed.
All that remain are a few 4chan quality trolls and a couple of grumpy old men who no longer defend Trump, but only grumble about how awful they think the imaginary liberals in their heads are.
If you are looking for any real debate, it's pretty slim pickin's.

Trump is the primary person responsible for the deaths of Americans. Every disease expert knew China was underplaying it severely when they locked down tens of millions with less than 1000 known cases.

Every expert distrusts them to begin with due to their behavior during the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s where they were even more tight lipped.

Every expert knows to distrust reports from ANY authoritarian government because the likelihood of officials to hide, downplay, or propagandize anything that could be detrimental to the regime power structure.

It is not the fault of the Chinese the current administration did everything they could to ignore the problem until it was too late. China's behavior ensured it wasn't going to stay IN China. The administrations behavior guaranteed disaster at home.

Intelligence agencies around the world informed their respective governments that China was downplaying it.  Some world leaders listen to their intelligence agencies.  Donald Trump does not.
