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.

Username... checks out?

Also... just think: If there had been one 500th or less of this compassion and professionalism one year ago, something close to 500,000 Americans would still be alive.

Thanks, MAGAts.

And senators who voted to acquit the first time, knowing damn well both the incompetence and criminality of the admin and the degree of danger presented by the virus as known in early reports and analyses.

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.


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.
WTF?

At least they went symbolic rather than literal. A half million candles would look like a rocket launch.

I am now glad I didn't post a rant about how terrible candles are in the thread right below this one.

But please, don't try lighting 500 candles at home.

I've never thought about it, but I expect they've taken great lengths to make sure the White House doesn't burn down...again.

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.

My dad told me that.  Also that corona virus is a Chinese new world order conspiracy.  My conversations with him have been very brief in the last year or so.

Someone leading us.

The occupant since Obama never held any type of memorial, or recognize the deaths.

I don't think we ask the POTUS if they want experimental stuff.
Just like the secret service drags them away.

That's not a problem with candles, that's a problem with adults who haven't learned anything about anything during their lives.

So does everything else in your house, with the possible exception of a HEPA filter (provided you clean/replace it regularly).

If I could have monkey's fly out of my ass on command, I'd be the biggest attraction at the carnival. That isn't going to happen either, but is probably 1000x more likely than Trump being a decent human being.

Or if he wasn't such a shiatbag that mobilized the largest vote against him in history.

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.

Who was that attorney who first claimed 500 deaths, then upped it to 5,000 deaths, then to 50,000 deaths? The first time was because he said he made a math mistake and missed the decimal point or something. Yeah, what's his claim now?

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.
