The president on Friday threw his support behind protesters in Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia who held demonstrations to oppose stay-at-home orders and other restrictions meant to curb the spread of the virus, calling to "liberate" those states. All three are run by Democratic governors.
In the days since, Trump has continued to approve of the protests even as they flout his own administration's guidelines to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people and remain six feet apart from others.
"As far as protesters, you know, I see protesters for all sorts of things," Trump said Sunday. "And I'm with everybody. I'm with everybody."


Clearly not, jackass.

We should protest the protests.

This should put the fire Fauci dipshiats into rabid frenzy.

So, that means that Trump thinks it's still a hoax.

They will backfire, much like Fauci's protest.  I wish him luck keeping his job, he's going to need it.

I'm surprised Trump hasn't tried to get rid of him yet.

Unless he actually has already tried, and Fauci told him to get stuffed. That's usually more than enough to get Trump to shut his wordhole.

Yeah, they've already vilified Fauci and want him fired because he doesn't fit the narrative, so they won't listen.

The protests aren't about restarting the economy.  The protests are about deflecting blame for this fiasco away from Trump and the GOP.
 
2020-04-20 4:12:03 PM  
The only way this could backfire any worse is if Obama or Clinton said it.

No no, just let the stupid ones weed themselves out and thus convince those who were on the fence to not be idiots. Kill two birds with one stone.

Maybe snap some pics, exploit facial recognition for a dox-and-shame campaign? Turnout is apparently low enough that you might be able to get all the plague-rats, and let's not kid ourselves: the overlap with the usual dox-and-shame targets isn't going to be low.

Not being able to sit-down for a meal at Applebee's is the equivalent of the Japanese internment camps in the 1940s.

I'm sure some people don't understand why we're all supposed to shelter in place, but these protests seem designed to cause political pain on intelligent leaders (can't call it an anti-Democrat thing since DeWine in Ohio is a Republican who saw his duty and did it). Not sure if it will work at the ballot box, but it will probably make a lot of people sick and might end up killing a few before then.

No way Trump tried it himself. Maybe he asked Jared or Miller to do it, but Trump's too much of a frightened child to confront anyone with a spine.

It's a runaround the fact that Trump couldn't force the states to reopen by himself so hes recruiting his cult followers to do the dirty work for him.

He's undermining his own administration's plan.

Remember he couldn't take a side when it came to Nazis. I suppose tomorrow we will hear about how there are good people and viruses on both sides.

A counter-protest consisting of drones would be hilarious.

Yes, we are once again being dragged down by our lowest common denominator. This is a recurring theme in America. Maybe one of these times we will do something about it.

If I was an employer, I don't know how much of a rush I'd be in to open business again, given the probability of liability and negligence lawsuits.  Somehow, I doubt that even if protesters signed some kind of waiver, that it would hold up.  Sh*t, half those employers are willing to do little or nothing as far as PPE or preventative measures to protect workers in non-pandemic times.

Using the Chrome article:
1) Enter chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy in URL bar
2) Change setting for "Autoplay policy"

Looks great, except in my updated version of Chrome, that setting doesn't exist.

Given diddly-fart's obvious mental decline (mental condition bad when elected, worse now), the verb to think may not be an appropriate description of his cerebrations.

Trump is psychologically incapable of criticizing anyone who praises him. He is exactly the kind of mark ass trick intelligence services pray for.
There are probably more Russian agents in Florida than Moscow right now.
 
2020-04-20 4:41:22 PM  
Fauci needs to realize he's using reason with people who are actively rejecting it.
 
2020-04-20 4:41:54 PM  
Can we get the good Doctor to run for President? we don't have anyone as it is and Fauci seems like a pretty smart fellow.
