If you know Biden and Obama stopped their testing-- they just stopped it. You probably know that. I'm sure you don't want to report it. But they stopped testing. Right in the middle, they just want, no more testing, and on a much lesser problem than the problem that we have, obviously, with respect to-- this is the worst thing that's happened since probably 1917

Playing "Let's Guess What Trump Really Meant" is a dumb game for babies, because he never means anything, he just lets the words that makes him feel good fall out of the burgerhole until the people they clap and cheer.

But I'm sort of curious whether this bit of word salad has its roots in any sort of Facebook right-wing-hoax thing about like "OBAMA FLU WAS 500X WORSE THAN COVID BUT HE STOPPED TESTING SO YOU DON'T KNOW" he saw on his phone and believed, or whether this is standard-issue no-connection-to-reality ad-lib bullsh*tting about how the thing everyone is mad at him for is actually the lazy and stupid black man's fault.

Why doesn't Obama use the time machine to prevent Trump from running? That still puzzles me.

Even worse, he was briefed on the Facebook post and that was the apex of his ability to regurgitate the info in a semi-coherent manner.

It I'd now up to his minions to explain what the hell he was talking about....you know the questions on if President Obama actually stopped testing and how the Cadet has the bestest test anyone has ever seen.

That's how it works

Come on, he's obviously talking about SARS-CoV-1, not SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19). Except he's letting Biden and Trump off easy. Back in 2003, Biden and Obama never even got testing started. They didn't lead at all. As above, it was Katrina all over again.

I think he means that we stopped testing for H1N1. We didn't need to of course. It was exactly like every other influenza virus as far as treatment and outcomes go, and testing is expensive.

We basically just decided that it was easiest to count the H1N1 pandemic numbers by taking all influenza cases, and subtracting out the number of cases that we predicted we would have of regular flu strains. Which made perfect sense to do in that case.

Samsquantch: Why doesn't Obama use the time machine to prevent Trump from running? That still puzzles me.


As a member of the illuminati, he knows that his reputation will be sealed by comparison of those who flank him. He wasn't content to be compared with GW, he wanted more. So he worked to get the worst possible President to follow him and so used the White House Correspondents dinner to goad Trump into running. And he entrapped Hillary by allowing her to use a private email server. Q told me.
 
2020-07-14 3:28:41 AM  
And when you test, you create cases. So we've created cases.


No, you've verified cases that already existed, you farking idiot.  It's a not a cat in a box, waiting for an electron to decay.

Obama admin shut down H1N1 testing, complicating Biden's attacks on Trump's coronavirus screening
Public health officials disagreed with Obama CDC's decision


I haven't read it closely about what it is actually claiming and what it is based on.


I did look at this paragraph

> "In late July, the CDC abruptly advised states to stop testing for H1N1 flu, and stopped counting individual cases," CBS News reported in 2009. "The rationale given for the CDC guidance to forego testing and tracking individual cases was: why waste resources testing for H1N1 flu when the government has already confirmed there's an epidemic?

"

Swine Flu Cases Overestimated?

By Sharyl Attkisson
October 21, 2009 / 9:03 AM / CBS

If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn't have H1N1 flu.

In fact, you probably didn't have flu at all. That's according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation.

The ramifications of this finding are important. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Britain's National Health Service, once you have H1N1 flu, you're immune from future outbreaks of the same virus. Those who think they've had H1N1 flu -- but haven't -- might mistakenly presume they're immune. As a result, they might skip taking a vaccine that could help them, and expose themselves to others with H1N1 flu under the mistaken belief they won't catch it. Parents might not keep sick children home from school, mistakenly believing they've already had H1N1 flu.

Because it's always someone else's fault, or the result of their actions.

Years ago I ended a long term friendship, because of the actions of the supposed friend of mine. For the next few years, I was accused of spreading stories about the former friend, when the most I ever said about the situation was "I don't hang out with him anymore."

The thought that people might think badly of this person because of their own actions did not register with my former friend. No, someone must have been undermining his reputation.

Langdon_777: Seriously this ignorant narcissist was the best the US could come up with to be the president?  I recon you could have just randomly picked the president and you would have gotten a better one.


Having no president at all would be better than this. If Trump had been locked in his bunker, unable to communicate with the outside world in any way we would be significantly better off.

He has bungled the response to this pandemic through his frantic attempts to minimize the threat, cast blame on China and the WHO and to save his precious Dow Jones Industrial Average.

His delusional belief that he is always the smartest person in the room is directly responsible for the death of tens of thousands of Americans and he should be held to account.

I see it now... H1N1 is a virus, which is a virus, like the flu, but not and this seems like HIV but we can't do that because its like sex but with men but ewwwww.... I KILLED HIM! RODGER!  NO?

Why do we have to wait for November January?  Why can't a group of people actually concerned about the country march into Washington and, starting at the top, just throw each farking asshole in turn into the Potomac until they get to somebody willing to actually DO SOMETHING about the pandemic?

Imagine if this was like a 10% mortality virus instead of 0.6%.  Imagine if it left people maimed instead of simply with long-term chronic health problems.  For fark's sake, the worst country in Europe is now at less daily cases than many large US CITIES.  What the fark does it take to start trying some of the Constitutional remedies for complete dereliction of duty?

Trump has said numerous times that the number of rona cases would go down if there wasn't so much testing. ergo, he must be praising Obama for putting a stop to H1N1 tests.

I have a family member who can't walk thanks to Covid. As in, their brain was not damaged but their nervous system was attacked. They are still in the physiotherapy ward of a hospital, indefinitely.

I have friend who had symptoms for 80+ days. He is in his 30s. He refuses to work outside his home until there is a vaccine, luckily he is IT so he can do that.

It looks like a  difference without a distinction, this "chronic health" euphemism that media are using instead of disability.
