Give it 3-4 weeks.

Just because the rest of the word figured out widespread mask usage *before* losing 200k lives doesn't mean that there was anything wrong with his response of calling it a hoax, blaming China and democrats for all his problems, and then waiting for it to disappear like a miracle.

Trump isn't stupid. Why do you think he keeps trying to kill testing while claiming we do so much of it?
 
2020-08-27 6:40:52 PM  
We're going to make this a conversation but this is pretty much within most margins of error.  Along with all the regular limitations of this type of polling etc.

Maybe you guys should thank him for destroying those sorting machines at the post office which were spreading the virus willy nilly

For sure, I want the pandemic to go away, but I don't want Trump to get any credit for it.  Is that wrong?

The US needs to do what Italy did. Show trucks full of coffins and dead bodies so people take it serious.

Oh, so NOW Americans are stupid? Not when 63 million of them voted for an obviously stupid, racist asshole in 2016 because of "her emails" or "Clinton"? Or when 100 million of them didn't bother voting at all because "both sides are the same" and "it doesn't matter who runs the government."

But NOW they're stupid. LOL

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Give it 3-4 weeks.


Yeah, we're probably seeing a slight decline from the last round of social distancing pushes, but a spike at the end of September is not out of the question. The administration will probably make a huge push against restrictions in September-October to bolster the economy in advance of the election, and we'll get to see what happens as seasonal flu intersects with Covid.

No, it isn't wrong.  Chances are there will be something worse coming up in the next four years with or without Trump.

I'd think it'd be obvious by now that someone doesn't have to be smart to fark all of us. He's done it numerous times. We all saw it.

From what I've heard, there isn't gonna be a seasonal flu this year. It hasn't gone around the southern hemisphere (because of measures taken against COVID), so it isn't coming here, either. You should still get a flu shot, should those become available.

We will have 250K COVID deaths well before November. They can't bullshiat on that number. They can act like it's no big deal, which frankly I think is already working against them.

The numbers shot up after all of the George Floyd protests and riots. After a few weeks of peace, numbers léveled off. Expect Kenosha to be a hotspot in approximately 12 days.

It behooves Democrats to have more riots because more riots mean more Corona and thus worse ratings for Trump. That's why they won't let Trump send in the troops!

Cause someone smarter told him to?
 
2020-08-27 7:02:10 PM  
He was right. Less testing means less proven positive cases. So that's why the cases have gone down because we're not testing. See? Make sense?
 
2020-08-27 7:02:18 PM  
Ignore the polls.

Also, while cases have been going down, with so many states still acting like it's all a hoax, along with idiots traveling in large groups, one can expect to see the numbers going back up within the next 3-4 weeks, as those same people end up coming down with COVID.

I'm really curious who they are asking about this.
Because if you are asking anyone who lives in a place where you have to wear masks everywhere, can't eat inside restaurants, no bars, no concerts, no sporting events, and all the rest...  The longer this goes on, the more clear and obvious it is that, not only is Trump handling the pandemic badly, he is, in fact NOT DOING anything at all.  Nothing.  He's literally just waiting for it to go away.  He is pretending it's not real.

And people who are suffering know this.

So really, who the FARK thinks he is handling this thing well?!

And remember that by mid-September, almost all kids will either be quarantined after botched in-person learning or will have started the school year virtually. Parents trying to balance work and being a homeschool teacher will be VERY aware of the ongoing Covid crisis.

He is a complete idiot with decades of honed instincts around feeding his narcissism. It's both true that he has no plan but he's skilled at driving a narrative that makes him look good.
Don't underestimate him but don't ascribe forethought to anything he does. He thrives in chaos.

God I hope so, because so far the worst and loudest people I've seen on social media have all been Mommy Culture zealots squawking up and down about opening the economy and "it's just a flu" and how vaccines are evil.
