Trump and his supporters view knowledge=weakness, honesty=weakness, kindness=weakness. They hate anyone who appears to show weakness.

For them it doesn't matter what Trump says, as long as he doesn't appear weak, and he avoids looking weak by doing battle with those who exhibit the three qualities above.

This is also a trap, because during those times when he doesn't do battle, he looks weak, and his supporters begin to chew on him immediately. That pressure motivates him to continue battling, to keep them at bay.

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.

Actually it's super easy, barely an inconvenience. It's called the "positive test rate". If excessive testing really explained the increase, the percentage of tests that came back positive would drop because we'd be testing up more and more negative cases. But percent positive cases has gone up, meaning that we are not even keeping up with the increasing case load.

No.  I'm talking about the issue of testing.  If the U.S. tests way more than other countries, then the U.S. is likely to show more cases.


Lowering testing rates doesn reduce cases, it simply reduces testing accuracy.  You still have just as many infected.  The point he's making is moronic at best.

I think maybe I get it.

Bearing in mind, 45 is a very stupid man, who presumably believes the U.S. is inherently best at everything.

Maybe he thinks that in reality, the rates of coronavirus infection are actually the same everywhere in the world.  So he figures every country really has about the same number of people infected, and he doesn't even consider the measures other countries have taken that addressed the threat more effectively than the U.S.

Therefore, the only reason the U.S. total infected looks worse is because of testing finding those cases.  If every other country tested more, of course they would also find more cases.  So when he talks about other countries that can send their kids back to schools, he doesn't even understand that their conditions are different.

I guess.  I can't make sense of his spew any other way, and now I've spent more time thinking about it than he deserves.

He just keeps repeating the same nonsense over and over again to the point where it just becomes tiring to correct him. Yes, it is true that we may have more confirmed cases because we test more.  We also have more cases by shear number because, in part, we have a larger population than most countries. However, the cases exist whether or not we test and we have more cases, confirmed and unconfirmed, because of the poor job being done to limit the pandemic.

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.
