Oh, wait.

If we didn't check their breathing and heart rates, they wouldn't have died!

cooldaddygroove: We'll come back strong from what?


Why, the eight years of tyrannical, lawless misrule by the Obama crime syndicate, of course.

Paraphrasing only slightly, this is exactly what I have been told by the numerous crazy people I am unfortunately required to co-exist with.

How can anyone with 2 working brain cells agree with this mouth-breathing, hamberder-munching, baby-caging moran?

that's the saddest thing about this country, all those morons that support him

So I think we should add "by not understanding math" after every description of his actions or failures.

edmo: He should brag up the superiority of our death certificates as well.


Just donate $50 to the RNC and you can get a death certificate signed by Dr. Donald J. Trump!  Did you know he's a doctor?  Someone said he was a doctor and just to be sure, he took and aced a doctor test!

You don't have to be dead yet.  When it happens just have the next of kin fill in the date and reason for death.  You'll want all your surviving friends and family members to see your death was signed off by Dr. Donald J. Trump.

Original: Original Tweet:

realDonaldTrump: Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000. If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG! :: https://t.co/hhwYOrnWZn


My roommates' braindead sister is convinced that they're giving people Covid through testing kits.  Unfortunately their mother listens to her, her pastor, Fox News and OAN and whatever garbage the crazy sister sends her on Tik Tok. Not necessarily in that order.   And unfortunately she's not alone.

This is what 40 years of rightwing mass media has done to millions of people.  The reasoning ability of at least one entire generation has been almost entirely stripped away.

China showed that 100% lockdown is the only way out. Europe's 95% and America's 50% are both half-assed measures that suppress the virus but don't really stop it. There isn't the willpower for really ending the pandemic outside of totalitarian nations. The world has decided a "middle way" of infection, death, and mask wearing is what is preferred because economy.

Oysterman: I'm not even sure if we test more than others.  Weren't there not enough tests available to begin with?


Per Worldometers we are only 19th in tests per capita.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronav​i​rus/

While some of the countries ahead of us are small enough that a few thousand here or there can cause large swings in the ratio and of course call any number from Russia suspect, but that still leaves us behind Lithuania, the UK, and Denmark. The UK is a cluster so we should expect them to be doing lots of tests, but Denmark and Lithuania are kicking our butts in terms of tests per confirmed cases.

So, in regards to Trump's "Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000."

Per capita sounds like a commie phrase that's used to make people confused. If a number larger than another then it's the biglier number. That's real math.

Thanks. That'll be even more fun.

Maybe I cracked his code?

Perhaps it's not that tests causes cases. I think Trump is trying to suggest that our testing rates have revealed all of the cases, therefore we're responding properly; given that we have all the available knowledge to fight COVID-19. But his narcissism won't allow him to acknowledge that he doesn't actually understand the science.

There's no way in hell he could spell both Pittsburgh and Gettysburg correctly on the first try, nor does he have a clue what the Magna Carta was.

No, it was a taking point about how other countries had done more testing at the start and we had such low numbers.

This is just another example of trumpster fire tripling down.
 
2020-08-01 9:09:05 PM  
This had reached the point where we basically have Michael Kelso from That '70s Show or Jason Mendoza from The Good Place as president, at least in terms of intelligence and scientific understanding.

They would find a way to use mental gymnastics to show that their faith was correct all along.

"This was all part of His plan! I wasn't supporting the antichrist, I was just making sure the revelations came to pass!" I'm sure an angry, almighty would fall for that.

Gergesa: wademh: Fact: Most of these people were admitted to hospitals. Hospitals are causing Covid-19 deaths.

It is worse than that; hospitals are actively murdering patients to create flesh golems so doctors and nurses can have an unfeeling army to take over the U.S.  We are through the looking glass people!


I'm playing a Necro on Diablo3 right now, so I'm getting a kick at the mention of flesh golem...

Except I'm playing a corpse explosion necromancer....

Nah, they've just been testing more lately.  Isn't that your logic you donkey brained shiatheel?

Interesting how the normal putin lickers don't come out in support of their fat orange god when he makes such fundamentally stupid statements.  It's almost as if they know just how stupid they are.  Sometimes.

Perhaps one of the true believers can explain how their raping fat blob is correct.  Please?  Even soviet spud?

I guess he thinks cases are like, negative ratings.
