Meh.  That'll just be served up with the regular thrice-daily meal of fibburgers topped with liettuce, fictions, and mendacitoes, slathered in horseshiat, and garnished with a tiny mushroom.

Most powerful?  It's his only answer to anything at all.

Only slightly safer than accidentally endorsing MMS.

Well, when the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem is a nail.

Technically it's his most powerful answer then.

Completely off topic, but something that's been on my mind recently: most conspiracy theorists tend to veer right... So I wonder how people who believe in predictive programming explain away the fact that The Simpsons "predicted" Trump's presidency, and also foresaw that it was going to be a disaster.

Then again, I shouldn't come to expect logical consistency from these people... It's just that, if I were the type of person to believe The Simpsons tried to warn us about 9/11, then I'd expect to also believe that the joke about Trump's presidency would've been a warning that he's actually with the deep state, and that they were going to use him as a tool of economic devastation.

"We have tested much more than anybody else times two," Trump replied. "We've tested more than every country combined." He went on to say, "We inherited a very broken test, a broken system and a broken test, and within a short period of time we were setting records. We have done more than the entire world combined." And he said the United States would "very soon" surpass 5 million tests per day - a figure beyond his own administration's rosy forecasts.

Did he just say this today?  Because currently the total testing is:

The United States: 6,139,911
Rest of world combined: 25,693,616

The US has only tested 1.8% of its population.

Lies, subby, or lyes?

/Or perhaps Lysol?
 
2020-04-29 10:32:02 PM  
Something else to add.  Since the start of this mess we've only tested 6,139,911 people, yet:

"And he said the United States would "very soon" surpass 5 million tests per day"

/I don't believe you.

Good question. And to take it a step further I believe the Simpsons writers colluded with Watterson when he put dumpy's brain in Bill the Cat.

I have long suspected this but seeing it in print means its real. I should have seen this years ago.

/because seeing it in print makes it real
//no matter that I wrote it
///it's now in print and true

Did anyone see the tree planting on Arbor Day? They had four people with two shovels so they had to double up. The awkward gyrations of trying to look cool while obviously uncomfortable with actually touching each other was embarrassing and kinda fun.

Guess the big V took all the money allocated for the other two shovels.

Sometimes life imitates art. Remember when they predicted that Springfield would get a monorail?

Why does Shovel get the endorsement?  Because it was on air first?
I think Shovel should be endorsing Ladder, but that's just me.

That's easy: They don't see Trump's presidency as a disaster, so they'll ignore it.

President Trump has begun clinical trials testing his most promising antidote: Can the novel coronavirus be killed with a lie?

"Yes but it, uhh, does a number on the lungs and you've got to inject the lie or get it into the lungs somehow to clean them, like how they make clean coal, they take the coal and they clean it, it is so amazing, truly tremendous and we're going to bring back those coal mining jobs, coal and other mining, it's all coming back, believe me.

Wait, what was the question?"

How the fark do you inherit a test for a virus that doesn't exist yet?

"One hallmark of Trump's dishonesty is that if he thinks a false or incorrect claim is a winner, he will repeat it constantly, no matter how often it has been proven wrong,"

No one let this man near a casino. Oh..right.

They really needed a monorail though, like a mule needs a spinning wheel.

A wild CORONAVIRUS appears!

TRUMP uses lying!
It's completely ineffective.

CORONAVIRUS uses Infect!
It's super effective!

TRUMP uses lying!
It's completely ineffective.

CORONAVIRUS uses Pneumonia!
It's effective!

Golly but there sure does seem to be a lot of misconstruing and twisting of words of the straight shooting president.

Lies have been his answer to everything his entire life, and they got him all the way to the presidency. Was anyone expecting him to stop now?

HeartBurnKid: Lies have been his answer to everything his entire life, and they got him all the way to the presidency. Was anyone expecting him to stop now?


Uh, this. It's why (probably) he feels so betrayed by the press now. It lovingly repeated his bullshiat for decades, why did it not continue doing that when he became president? I mean, it took them farking FOREVER to stop repeating his bullshiat, but finally, farking finally, they've started actual reporting, not just parroting his talking points with no criticism whatsoever. Reality forced them to recognize it. When something is killing so many people in such a short interval of time, can't really message that shiat away. Not here. Not really anywhere, but the government doesn't have quite the stranglehold on the press here that it has in Russia, China and North Korea, the countries and leaders he most admires for their ability to not be held accountable for anything.
