We told he was gonna.
You laughed at us.
Your laughter sounds a lot less convincing, these days - has a hollow, frightened ring to it.

Tell me again how people trust Trump on the economy.

The fact that the stock market hasn't bottomed out at zero shows you exactly how little that has to do with how Americans actually live.

It's almost as if the people in charge of the country don't give a shiat about the economy as long as they get theirs.

The ONLY answer is universal basic income and single payer healthcare.

People cannot be so vulnerable that they have to choose between their health and their paycheck.

Finally seeing the fallout from the Obama recession. Thank goodness Trump is in office. We'll need a businessman to fix this.

Trumper response - "this was totally unforeseen and an act of God, he is not responsible - what about Obama and how he killed 26 million people with SARS and laughed and laughed in his tan suit?"
 
2020-04-23 9:44:50 AM  
Well, Trump HAS been trying to undo everything Obama has done.  I guess he's "succeeded"...

Trump and Susan Collins cut pandemic response.

They caused this problem deliberately.

So all of human history plus specifically 20 years of warning that this exact scenario was coming, several presidencies spanning both parties worth of preparation dismantled on purpose by the current administration, and the fault lies with *looks around frantically grasping at invisible gnats* the phantom chimera labs. Got it.

You sure? I heard it was Obama, and his Deep State, along with the Demoncraps and Killery.
Anybody but the stable genius in charge of our own country, of course. He clearly has clearly stated that he isn't responsible for anything, and we know he never lies.

The biggest, most beautiful unemployment. No one's ever seen unemployment this high. It's amazing. Believe me.

Put some perspective on the number.
Approximately 155 million workers in the USA. Which means about 16.5% of workers unemployed Plus the 3.5% pre COVID unemployment puts the USA at about 20% unemployment.
 
2020-04-23 9:48:59 AM  
It took 23 days for Florida to process my unemployment claim just to determine eligibility - faster than I thought it would be but still slow as hell.  It will probably take another few weeks for the money to come in.  Hell they just got around to sending out checks for the $600 a week stimulus 2 days ago to people who filed ages ago.  Fun stuff.

I'm definitely grateful that I can still work. In fact, there's still hiring going on, as evidenced by one of my coworkers giving her two-week notice yesterday. Given the pace of hiring in Silicon Valley, she probably started the process before the shelter-in-place order, but still... She got hired during a pandemic.

And thats the bullshiat unemployment number.

Cant wait to see the real household survey in early may. I bet itll be like 35+ million jobs lost just in april after losing 2.9 million jobs in march... when the gov said only 700 000 were lost.

They're both right, but 26 million unemployed Americans didn't happen because Trump is a fascist.

I'm seriously thinking that the people who (re)engineered it were less worried about the solution as they were perfecting the cause. First you make the demon to prove that you can, worry about the fallout of your failures to contain later when after all, depopulation was the goal the whole damned time.

It's worse.  We can't talk about opening anything - curve isn't flattened, second wave, peak just around the corner.  Also, look at how much damage Trump has done, look at the people lining up for food.
