Where was this 'Matthew McConnery' during the impeachment Witch Hunt? Why is he doing this now? Why only say something now? I will tell you why, it's because he's a loser and his message is for losers. When I had the best economy God ever saw created, where was he to thank me? To thank us? To thank you, the people? He was in his elite west Beverly Hills with the other far-left liberals of Hollywood talking about Trump this and Trump that, negative mind you, not positive, but negative, and not in a good way negative, like a COVID test, which some people say might not even be good to get, but who knows? Who knows? But they will take any chance to say something negative, so now they want to call for unity because they don't want to give me credit for all the highest testing numbers in the world, twice as many as all other nations combined, or the great bread lines we're working on, to get the most tremendous bread out to the people from our great patriot warrior farmers. Nothing about that. It doesn't matter.. I had a woman come up to me yesterday, beautiful woman, really smart and successful too, and she said 'Sir, why would Mr. McNaughty release this ad about unity with the far-left and not give you the credit for your amazing job at handling this and preventing millions and millions of deaths?' And I had to explain to her, I said it's just how they are, they hate Trump. NE-VER. TRUMP-ERs, is what I call them. Nobody else had called them that, but that's the name I came up with for them. Them and the left, they just want to see as much failure and death as possible. So no, I don't think we'll ever have unity, thanks to ads like this.

Too late.  This virus is trying to make Dear Leader looks less than competent.

Mugato: He's not wrong but that ship has sailed.


Yep. TBH, this smacks of self-serving; he's out here pointing at the barn door and going, "hey, folks, y'know this is open, right?" long after the cows have left, kicked over the lamp, set the town on fire, watched as the first responders tried to put it out, mooed as the bodies were buried, and nonchalantly loitered as the memorial statue was put up in the town square.

"Just recently, I started to notice"? Really, Matt?! C'mon - you act as though you've stepped out of your tower, distracted by your work in the cosmos, to see the rest of us scurrying about, overwhelmed by partisan division, and thought to yourself, "well, I'll have to straighten this out."

FFS.

We know, Matt. The virus isn't partisan. The response (or lack thereof) is entirely partisan, though, and this is not only not helping, but highlighting the fact that you've been apparently farking disconnected from it all for months.

I would like this message to be sent out, loud and clear, in crayons if need be, to every single media outlet. Especially those with 6 or fewer letters in their name. That does not preclude others with more than 6 letters in their name from taking note either.

This shiat starts with the media and it needs to end with the media.

No ones particular color need be called out, they all have brown on the tips of their nose.

Remember the Parks and Rec virus special? Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd) doing the opening? Why does this sound kind of like that?

Shut up and play the charming but buffoonish southern guy in rom-coms, actor. No one cares about your uninformed political views.


He's right though...but we need to keep up appearances.

You mean when people disagree on things it doesn't have to be bastardized into a political issue?! OMG!

I need to know which media outlet released this before I can form an opinion.

It kind of is though. The people actively trying to make things worse, by and large, subscribe to one political ideology. By and large, the people I know personally who aren't taking this seriously subscribe to one political ideology. I'm not looking to have a kumbaya moment with people who think the lives of me and my family are worth less than their farking stock portfolio.

There are Republicans who have done well handling this crisis and some who have done poorly. There are Democrats who have done well handling this crisis and some who have done poorly. The issue is that there's one very particular Republican who has done very, very poorly and has built up a cult of personality, a war against the media, and vilification of anyone critical of him.

Maybe they're worried about the world still being able to provide for itself when this is done and are trying to prevent more death. They see nothing but the other side holding up in their houses forever yelling about saving every single life who assume everything is going to be fine and giving no thought to how much collateral damage our current path will cause.

If things reopen before we can even test properly the collateral damage will be much, much worse in the long run. I don't know how many times it has to be said.

But hey go ahead, go out, socialize, you'll sure show us. Do us a favor though, when you inevitably get sick stay the fark away from a hospital. Just sit in your home and drown in your own fluids and think about how farking stupid and selfish you were.

Lets be honest here, that is the right answer. No one knows if this will get better or worse, so its not needed to push that it will only get worse.

I do agree, however, it will get worse, nearly everyone will likely get it, however, not everyone is likely to die from it.

Selfish is hiding in your home too scared to go outside and help the rest of the world maintain it. What good are you doing trying to shatter the optimism of people who don't want to see society collapse? I never thought I'd see people so scared of dying (are you 70+ with health complications?) that they refuse to live.

I work for a hospital. I'm going to follow the advice of actual virologists, immunologists and epidemiologists we have on staff before I follow the advice of some rando sociopath on the internet.

Here I am selfishly keeping my family safe when I could be out buying burgers and tchotchkes so some rich dick's portfolio gains a point or two. I'm such an asshole.

Well, that's... one of the dumber things I've heard today.

Stay. The. Fark. Home. If you can stay home, you're doing what health officials, healthcare professionals, and everyone else who's unable to stay home want you to do.

Only an idiot would somehow claim that doing the right thing is somehow "cowardice." Do you believe that wearing a mask is somehow a "cuck move," too?

FFS. So tired of morons who think the length of their dick matters to a farking virus.

brizzle365: I do agree, however, it will get worse, nearly everyone will likely get it, however, not everyone is likely to die from it.


Yep. The point isn't that it's so lethal that if you get it, you're going to die. It's that, if you don't get it, you save room & time in a hospital for someone who did get it, which improves their chances for a farking positive outcome.

If 20 people flood a location that can only care for 10, chances are the other 10 are going to have a bad time regardless of their demographic or ideology. If you can remove yourself from that pool, even for a little while, the health or life you save may not be your own.

How is this so farking hard to understand?!

You are absolutely correct.
To your last question, it seems that some people are incapable of objectively looking at situations from any other point of view, than their own.
*shrug*
Its not necessarily an ideology thing either. There are people in places who are not seeing the same things going on with massive infections, however, they are being stared in the face of losing businesses and livelihoods and are not getting assistance. I do personally know some. So I do understand that and can even even be empathetic to that as well, even tho I am still working, thankfully, because I couldn't afford to not be. If I lost my job? I might be thinking the same thing as a lot of folks who need to put the proverbial bacon on the table still.
With all of that said, I am still and have always been a fan of an abundance of caution.

Assuming there's only one right thing to do is actually the stupidest thing I've ever heard and that appears to be the mantra of the cowards:

'Q: What do we do about the virus? A: Stay at home'
'But I need to work' 'Stay at home'
'I need food for my family' 'Stay at home'
'I'm starving I NEED help' 'Stay at home'
'Society is crumbling' 'Stay at home'

The length of my dick can't feed my family. I'm not a porn star. 

You want to feed my family? NO? Then, like the rest of the people you just assume by some miracle are going to be fine need to get back out to work to earn a living. Sorry if it doesn't fit your, 'hide until we THINK its all fine' model. Tell me genius the point at which our stay at home action will do more harm than good. It will and no one can tell us when that is and that should worry you more than the virus.
