I knew he was delusional from the number of times he said he knew more about epidemiology and virology than Dr. Fauci, but he is now claiming that China committed an overt act of war against America.

Trump listens to him and trusts him. I don't think I will sleep very well now.

His rant about China was the stuff of a conspirator's wet dream.  Secret labs, bio engineered weapons, putting hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals on planes to infect the unsuspecting world.

I had to give up watching that interview yesterday. I was literally shouting at the TV in anger.

Christ, what an asshole.

There's a popular economist joke.  It's probably the only economist joke.

Economists never agree on anything, except that Peter Navarro is always wrong.

Trump is a coward that won't hit anyone while they're looking, and certainly not anyone that might hit back.  He'll take out his frustrations on the country instead.

I blame Trump for being weak on China.  Clearly Trump should not have let these thousands of Chinese nationals enter the US.  Smart.  Biden wouldn't be pushed around by China like this.

Donald owes too much to China and won't do anything. He won't do anything to Putin, anything to the Saudis, anything to Kim, because they are what he aspires to be (or thinks he is): people who get away with everything. This is why he despises actual leaders.

With China, DJT is all kayfabe. He does stuff to strut around but it's clear he adores them.

Thought experiment time:

Let's say this was a Bio attack, by whomever.  It doesn't matter.

In that case, he would have failed to protect the country from a foreign attack.  What he's doing is actively making this worse.

I doubt that he's inept.  He's doing exactly what he wants to do.  Killing a lot of Americans.

His campaign has been ramping up the anti-China rhetoric if the ads are any indicator.

He literally has nothing else and it shows.

I saw that headline on Fox yesterday; I was wondering what was up.

I know it's small potatoes compared to everything else we've got to un-fark when Trump's gone, but I really think we need to investigate all of the Trump-connected people who profiteered from the pandemic. That kind of aggressively harmful and greedy BS cannot be allowed to stand.

I was unfortunate enough to catch Navarro talking with someone on MSNBC yesterday, and his whole "China Virus" thing was delusional.

Who cares where it came from at this point?  It's here now.  What are you going to do about it here? Now?

I used to feel lucky when I read news about some Eastern European government spouting blatant propaganda as fact or a president in some African nation claiming that AIDS was a myth. "Glad I don't live there," I'd think to myself.

It's wild how this morons keep saying this, but are not pushing for a nuclear strike at China.  If we were the subject of a world wide biological attack, the proper response would be a retaliatory strike with nuclear weapons, right?  Do we just roll over for biological attacks that kills well over 130 thousand Americans and causing severe economic collapse.

Mockery to help strengthen the opposition.  We can't get soft.

Unfortunately most of the news folks do a shiatty job of confronting propogandistic talking points mano-a-mano.  It's shameful.

Peter Navarro is the helping to build the Trump Wall.

Like the Berlin Wall, it isolates people within the country ruled by a despot vassal of Russia.

Europe just clamped the gate shut for Americans -- given their atrocious and purposeful mismanagement of professional pandemic protocols and the pandering to those who would infect the rest as a statement of personal power.

An isolated economy loses even the metrics that keep it growing.  The numbers may look good until they don't mean anything.

The GOP has been moving for a few years towards China being the new "big bad" that we all have to hate because they are "undermining our freedoms." And of course to "defend ourselves" we'll have to keep shoveling endless amounts of money to our bloated and ineffective military meaning, gosh darn it, there just isn't any left over for social programs.

And the Democrats will largely go alone with it except they'll say Russia is the real "big bad."

I remember when Van Jones was forced out as an adviser back in 2009 when he was accused of signing some Truther petition five years prior.  Nowadays you can't have a position within this administration unless you're a frothing conspiracy nut.

That would mean committing their propaganda.  They don't need to do that.  They just need to ring the bell and walk away.  That does quite enough.

- Obama's birth certificate
- Ukraine and the Bidens
- Endless toothless and frivolous civil suits for alleged criminal activity

It's like whisper campaigns.  Except they're not whispering.

And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."

Trump helped China by firing our pandemic response team and ignoring our own intelligence agencies and covering for China from November 2019 until March 2020. The trade deal and Chinese trademarks for himself and Ivanka were more important.

So, you are saying a foreign government attacked us with a biological weapon and the administration was either unable to prevent it or unable to curtail it?  So was it an intel failure, a response failure, or both?

This argument just makes the admin look even worse.

Per my post above yours, that's phrasing is a huge tell.  He's not serious about the claim.  He just wants the propaganda out there and to help foster its spread.  It's a virus Team Trump has engineered.

I'm a Canadian who spent the W Years in Florida. 2010, for reasons personal and otherwise, I returned to Canada. My green carded teenage kids opted to follow shortly thereafter while my ex wife remained in Fla where she continues to live.

I have never felt so validated in my life when Trump was elected  - and doubly so after the CV19 hit.

So no doubt Donald and his daughter Ivanka will divest from China and move their businesses to the USA?
Oh, right, they like the slave labor, just like Donald hires illegal immigrants and fakes their social security numbers at Mar-a-Lago, but publicly blames them for all of America's problems.  It's all a cheap smokescreen for his base.
Hey Donald!  You're the problem!  Please resign and renounce your citizenship.  Maybe go to North Korea, you would fit in well there.
