Ray_Finkle: luckyeddie: That is, quite possibly, the most stupid thing I have ever read.

The most stupid thing you've read so far!

Give him another week, I'm sure he can top this


He's been going on about this same point for the past week or two, while his administration scrambles around trying to deflect it or pretend he was kidding, then he undermines them and himself by repeating it again. The dude is batshiat.

Pincy: JFC does he really not understand that the cases are still there whether we test for them or not? Are you farking dumbass Trumpers that brain dead that you don't understand this? Christ we are the laughing stock of the planet right now.


No.  He just doesn't want to know about it.  He thinks that if there's no data, no one else will, either, and he'll look far better than he does now.   It isn't registering that even if there's no actual information on COVID-19 deaths, there's still a huge uptick in excess deaths.

Alternatively, it's legitimately possible that he's genuinely so stupid that he believes that the testing is causing the problem and if it goes away, so does COVID-19.  Which means he has a problem with object permanence, one that most people figure out by age 7.

Soon he will claim that the other countries numbers are because they don't test so much.

Here is a prototype of what he will say, or close to:

"Damn Canadians, they stopped testing and now their numbers are going down."

The facts are that the tests are available for free to any Canadian, but nobody is feeling sick so there is less need for tests. Also our tests aren't American, so they are more reliable.

All the provinces ( states ) report the cases differently, as we attribute here in Quebec Covid deaths to anyone who was infected with covid and died of any reason. In their frame of mind, if you are positive for Covid and because of the pandemic you receive less care for another condition, you still died of Covid as it is a cause in your death. Basically if you die of a medical reason while you are infected here, we count it as a Covid death.

In Canada, there is neither a political reason for under reporting or over reporting.  In the US, many States have a clear political incentive for under reporting.

A General Disdain For All Of Humanity: I'm surrounded by Trumpers in WI. Glad I'm pretty anti-social. The only places I really care about is the Y, grocery stores, and the doctors.

I can't hardly wait to go back to work tomorrow and see my anti-mask co-workers. Then I can listen them to biatch about the media, the protestors, and generally anyone who's inconveniencing their lives.

Username checks out, and understandably so.

He's tested every day? No wonder he's so cranky.
