Taking a page from Trump's playbook, the WHO should just announce the changes Trump wants.  They don't have to implement anything, Trump isn't curious enough to follow up.

Is the WHO and Lancet still pretending like there wasn't person to person transmission documented till January.

Some folks can't even conceive of pulling their mouths off of the CCPs cock.

That's why Trump needs to defund the WHO until that brainless Bolshevik running it Hari Karis himself in utter disgrace.

Bloody William: Mrbogey:

Trump stopped foreigners from China coming into the US. He doesn't have the power normally to tell Americans they can't enter America.

Not so much. There were exceptions for Americans, and the government absolutely has the power to enforce quarantine measures for anyone, citizen or otherwise, coming in from a place where an outbreak has occurred.

Stopping Chinese from entering slowed down the spread to America.

Ha, how did that help now that we have the most cases and most deaths in the world? And before you fuh fuh fuh BUT CHINA LIED! again with that weak bullshiat (Yeah, they probably did, and it doesn't change Trump's inaction), how about we focus on the government, Trump's government, shiatting the bed with any kind of coordinated response to a global farking pandemic.

As opposed to Democrats like Pelosi and DeBlasio who were on record urging people to mingle in crowds and not worry about the virus. Christ, DeBlasio was telling folks to go to the YMCA in March. Trump was at least being optimistic and thinking he had it contained. You'd think Cuomo gets off on watching old folks die with his body count.

DeBlasio and Pelosi were wrong early on. How does that change that Trump and his administration didn't do a farking thing to address the pandemic until months later?

Keep talking about China lying. Keep talking about Pelosi and Chinatown. Keep talking about DeBlasio. None of those things change the fact that the president completely failed to coordinate and lead anyh form of national response to the pandemic for two goddamn months.

You reach back to January for excuses while forgetting just how long it took after anyh of that for Trump to do anything besides a tepid "China ban" that completely failed to prevent the spread of infection.


"Not so much"

Not so much? Holy shiat... Dude. American citizens aren't foreigners. You read what I wrote then proceeded to not understand it while viciously masturbating about stuff you've no clue on.

But sure, you got a point, if we ignore how mind boggling stupid the average Democrat is and how completely stupid their reactions were to this virus, then we really can't blame them!!

There is only so much Trump can do. He simply wasn't prepared for the incompetency of Democrats at all levels.

Oh look, I had to dig all of the way to the second sentence to find the problem with your absolutist take on thsi...

Taiwanese and U.S. officials have seized on the email to argue the WHO ignored an early warning that the coronavirus could likely be transmitted between people. In the weeks following the Dec. 31 note, the WHO echoed Chinese officials that there was "no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission"- even as cases began cropping up that raised suspicion of contagion.

I can find examples of the difference between "clear evidence" and "suspicion" if you would like. Because they aren't actually the same thing.

And here's your "bombshell" email:

[pbs.twimg.com image 850x601]

https://www.neweurope.eu/article/taiwa​n-releases-december-email-to-who-showi​ng-unheeded-warning-about-coronavirus/

They just asked for more information, said NOTHING about human to human transmission, and said "Well, we know it isn't SARS".

That's what you're basing this on? Because that's what the Time article is about. I can't believe that you're crowing from the rooftops about an inquiry for more info. Taiwan didn't point to actual evidence, they were just asking about a report they'd heard. Jesus, you TrumpFarkers will believe anything if Merkin Man says it, won't you? He didn't read this email, he just saw this stupid shiat on Twitter and decided to run with it.

Come back when you've actually GOT something.


They asked for more info because they knew the WHO position was wrong. That's them being polite in their correspondence.

Anyone who thinks for a second there wasn't person to person transmission known about in December by China is literally an idiot or on the take.

So, you obviously haven't been paid by the CCP so that tells us what category you fall into.

Bloody William: Mrbogey: There is only so much Trump can do. He simply wasn't prepared for the incompetency of Democrats at all levels.

Over 90,000 dead Americans because he failed to act in any meaningful way for months.

The fact that you can't face that, and keep trying to pawn off the responsibility onto Democrats and China? Speaks volumes about how shiatty your standards are and how much you just have to carry water for your dipshiat failson god-emperor.

Trump's the president. He failed to act for months. More Americans have died from the virus than died in the Vietnam war. He's in charge, he takes some of the blame whether you deflect wildly or not.


You're right. Trump's failure to hold Democrats responsible is a failing of his. Hopefully he corrects that and puts folks like Cuomo, Pelosi, Lightfoot, Whitmer, DeBlasio and such on trial. Until they're held to account for their failures, Americans can't trust the government.

It's not a bombshell in anyway. Only morons think it is. They asked because a new disease seemed to be cropping up. And talk about someplace with an axe to grind. Come back when you have someone who isn't Taiwan. Of course they want us to distrust China, and anyone else they can wrap up in the dispute is just icing on the cake. Besides, Taiwan sent this email the same day that China announced to the world they had a new disease in Wuhan that they were monitoring, so I still don't know what you thinks this proves. There's no smocking gun there, no covfefe. It's just not there.

For the record, I don't trust China. I'm just not dumb enough to chant "Hurr, durr!! WHO is part of the Deep State trying to take down Donald Trump."


I'm sorry that you're gullible enough to believe China wasn't aware of person to person transmission of the virus.

I can't help you understand that you're a sucker.

Gosh. I want to believe you and switch sides. This is your opportunity to grow Trump's base instead of watching it continue to shrink as the coronavirus continues:

Can you link me to the WHO articles and Lancet articles from December 2019 that you read to determine that Trump is right to defund the WHO?

This is important. Your side can win if you don't start doing this.
