Trump would have been re-elected in a landslide if not for two reasons:

1) He could not put his ego aside and let an expert like Fauci led and be responsible the response to the pandemic, Trump HAS to always be the center of attention and HAS to be the hero of the story.

2) He was so insecure about his image that he could not escape the trap of seeing Covid as a image-problem, instead of ever trying to solve the underlying issue he focused all his attention on trying to change how Americans perceived the problem.  His thinking was "if they don't think its a problem then they won't hold it against me" which made him steadfastly refuse to acknowledge it was serious or that he ever did anything wrong in how he addressed it.

Actually. All he had to do was try and he'd gotten reelected.
But, he didn't even try a we're all in this together let work together thing.
And he didn't try a martial law thing.
And he didn't try to railroad China.
And he fired the pandemic team.
At every turn he refused to be a president.

Eh, that feels a bit conspiracy theory to me, and I'm so tired of those. Not that it's impossible, I wouldn't put it past him, but I suspect it was just millions of tax dollars thrown at keeping him alive and healthy enough to stand up in from of cameras until he got over it.

I'd say it's peculiar that The Trolls would show up on a thread like this, but unfortunately this is the highlight of their day. They are such miserable creatures that they know, upon their passing, no one will mourn their departure, so the only way they can compensate for their life of meaninglessness is by attempting to get someone, ANYONE, to simply acknowledge their wretched existence. I believe that to be the definition of "pathetic".

Wrong. No takesie backsies are granted on your previous lies. Attempted retcon denied.

Right wing plague rats, and you here in particular, were absolutely *adamant* that as soon as the election was over, the media would stop reporting about it, because they only cared about covid because it was part of the conspiracy of apparently literally everyone and everything to make Trump look like a horrible person (as opposed to the obvious truth that he is).

Then that did not happen because that was not reflective of reality.

As case numbers kept exploding and we were losing a 9/11 of Trump murder victims a day, the new fantasy became "as soon as the demmycrats is in power the media will stop reporting about it."

Now here we are starting our second month with sane adults in charge and it turns out *that* wasn't the reason it stays in the news either, so now you're trying to shift to "nuh uh we never said they'd stop talking about it."

Don't you people ****ing realize that other people independently remember what you said previously? This is adorable when it's a 4 year old child telling mommy she didn't take the chocolate that she just now moved to holding behind her back on AFV, not so much when it's an adult with a personality disorder trying to gaslight people.

It's clear he beats off to videos of Ben Shapiro, Steven Crowder and Tim Pool. But then again, maybe not. Maybe they are played out and there's someone new his ilk worships.

Unright: fark'emfeed'emfish: How many flu deaths have there been since... Say 1900?

Seasonal counts are used for many crucial reasons when we track medicine using "science."

This is one of the dumbest spin I've ever heard.

Imagine demanding "seasonal counts" for a disease that hasn't been around for multiple years yet. Then putting science in scary quotation marks because you don't understand how a calendar works. That's a brain that doorknobs are too complicated.


It's what fark'em's been reduced to. I think its brain finally broke. The troll was quite active mid-last-year, first arguing "iT's JuSt ThE fLu" until the deaths started stacking up too high for even it to try to argue that point, then went on a tear about how masks don't work for a while. Every thread it would get its ass handed to it again and again and again. I haven't seen anyone owned that hard since Kunta Kintae. I particularly liked the threads where it would rage quit, or the ones where it would just start spewing out nonsense to such a degree that all of a sudden all its posts would vanish and then there'd be a seven-day period where we wouldn't hear from it. I though it was gone, but here it is again, trying to make some vague semblance of a point about seasonal rates. It's sadder than normal, but stands as evidence that the mentally unhinged and poorly educated probably shouldn't be allowed access to the internet.

Wrong. No takesie backsies are granted on your previous lies. Attempted retcon denied.

Right wing plague rats, and you here in particular, were absolutely *adamant* that as soon as the election was over, the media would stop reporting about it, because they only cared about covid because it was part of the conspiracy of apparently literally everyone and everything to make Trump look like a horrible person (as opposed to the obvious truth that he is).

Then that did not happen because that was not reflective of reality.

As case numbers kept exploding and we were losing a 9/11 of Trump murder victims a day, the new fantasy became "as soon as the demmycrats is in power the media will stop reporting about it."

Now here we are starting our second month with sane adults in charge and it turns out *that* wasn't the reason it stays in the news either, so now you're trying to shift to "nuh uh we never said they'd stop talking about it."

Don't you people ****ing realize that other people independently remember what you said previously? This is adorable when it's a 4 year old child telling mommy she didn't take the chocolate that she just now moved to holding behind her back on AFV, not so much when it's an adult with a personality disorder trying to gaslight people.

When, exactly was tge election over again?

So, how long until one of the usual suspects finishes his in depth "investigation" into this photo and makes the "stunning" accusation that there are only 496 candles in the picture, which obviously means the number of deaths is being made up by the fake news media who can't even keep their own story straight.

fark'emfeed'emfish: How many flu deaths have there been since... Say 1900?

Seasonal counts are used for many crucial reasons when we track medicine using "science."


This is one of the dumbest spin I've ever heard.

Imagine demanding "seasonal counts" for a disease that hasn't been around for multiple years yet. Then putting science in scary quotation marks because you don't understand how a calendar works. That's a brain that doorknobs are too complicated.

Herr Morgenstern: kab: NINEv2: Its soul crushing to think that the only reason that fat fark survived is due to a shiatload of experimental treatments.

It wouldn't be surprising to learn that he survived largely due to not actually having it in the first place.   "hey, lets pull a publicity stunt to downplay the perceived danger of the virus"  is absolutely something that administration would have thought was a good idea.

Eh, that feels a bit conspiracy theory to me, and I'm so tired of those. Not that it's impossible, I wouldn't put it past him, but I suspect it was just millions of tax dollars thrown at keeping him alive and healthy enough to stand up in from of cameras until he got over it.


We should be thankful that he had it and this stuff kept him alive. Despite Pence being a plank with a blank face painted on it, Trump's death would have martyred that party over the finish line.

OK, I'll play.

It's clear that the COVID-19 "season" mirrors the influenza one, so we'll split at May 1

...and everyone dies with or without bleach.

My point was you're a farking idiot spouting conspiracy theories. Bleached brain and all.

Which one was the conspiracy?

A) the fact that we have seasonal counts for every other illness
B) that we used to track medicine using science?

You never answer anything do you? You just post screen shots from unnamed sources that most people with a bit of intellect would find it immature and filled with fake bravado of what you think political discussions are about. It's really sad. Who is your hero? Please tell. Not that you won't be laughed at.

It's clear he beats off to videos of Ben Shapiro, Steven Crowder and Tim Pool. But then again, maybe not. Maybe they are played out and there's someone new his ilk worships. Someone even more imbecilic and edgy. A new denizen among 'actually' incels who is five foot two and has an even higher pitched voice and an even greater Napoleon complex than Shapiro.

Because fark compassion and empathy. He'd rather be a dick.


Wow.

Meatsim1: The Dog Ate My Homework: It's ironic to think that if Trump had been a decent human being, he probably would have been re-elected, but he also never would have been elected in the first place.

Trump would have been re-elected in a landslide if not for two reasons:

1) He could not put his ego aside and let an expert like Fauci led and be responsible the response to the pandemic, Trump HAS to always be the center of attention and HAS to be the hero of the story.

2) He was so insecure about his image that he could not escape the trap of seeing Covid as a image-problem, instead of ever trying to solve the underlying issue he focused all his attention on trying to change how Americans perceived the problem.  His thinking was "if they don't think its a problem then they won't hold it against me" which made him steadfastly refuse to acknowledge it was serious or that he ever did anything wrong in how he addressed it.
