Much To Do About Virus

I have read many blog posts of people telling us all about the “expert” team that Trump has assembled to tackle the virus pandemic.

I do not believe this team is any more than a way for Trump to blame somebody when it all goes horribly wrong.

Plus if these “experts” have their finger on the pulse of the virus why would our president show his ignorance……yet again?

Twitter users took President Donald Trump to task after he suggested in a rambling interview that it would be OK if people infected with the coronavirus ignored official advice to isolate and went to work instead.

Trump told Fox NewsSean Hannity on Wednesday night:

A lot of people will have this and it’s very mild. They’ll get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor. They don’t even call a doctor. You never hear about those people. So you can’t put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this corona flu and/or virus. So you just can’t do that. So, if you know, we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work. Some of them go to work, but they get better.

Trump has been peddling falsehoods and downplaying the virus threat amid his administration’s haphazard response, even as COVID-19 illnesses spread in the U.S. 

Critics on social media appeared exasperated by Trump’s “go to work” suggestion, which contradicts Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance that people with COVID-19 should “not go to work school or public areas” and “avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing or taxis.

How can anyone support this screaming idiot after he makes claims like this?

I feel sorry for the dullards that like this man….especially after stating that “going to work when sick is a way to fight this virus”

  1. I feel sorry for the dullards that like this man….especially after stating that “going to work when sick is a way to fight this virus”

    He did not say this. You are misquoting him just like fake news CNN and MSNBC and all the others to make him sound foolish. What he said was “we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work. Some of them go to work, but they get better.”

    That is a far cry from saying ” going to work is a way to fight the virus” and using your manufactured quote to justify calling him a screaming idiot and calling his supporters dullards.

    1. Dear Mr. DiAgostino ….you have to understand that people who use “Manufactured” quotes have agendas that are served best by them.

  2. There be much delusion at the top… about global warming not existing, windmills causing cancer, and much more…. Delusion and denial is not a river in Egypt, nor is it a healthy way to deal with a pandemic.

    1. Dear Green Road — You can’t physically plug up a volcano either …It is much the same thing. Talk about containment is idle wishful thinking. If the virus is “Contained” it won’t be because of anything puny Mankind will do … unless there is another Jonas Salk out there somewhere.

  3. I fully expect all this to get a lot worse. There should be restrictions on travel, but that is being ignored. Now there is a Nile cruise ship with a dozen or so cases on board. The trickle of cases will become a waterfall.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I know that you like “Facts” a lot so let me share a couple of facts with you …..(1) The president is in error for suggesting that people who are sick should go to work ….I will give you that ….but he is not all wrong on what he is trying to say ….. even though he needs guidance before he opens his mouth because he has a history of sticking his foot into his mouth …. but he is not all wrong like I said because ….”Most people who catch the new coronavirus recover at home, and some need hospitalization to fight the virus. But in a number of patients, the disease called COVID-19 is deadly. — and that last statement comes from the horse’s mouth .. the science horse that should know. Note that science is saying that MOST people recover at home … a few need hospitalization …. and the disease is deadly in far fewer instances …. People are getting all hyped up and scared when they should do the common sense things their doctors are telling them to do …and forget about what the politicians are saying. But let’s not blame the politicians for not knowing what they are doing with this crisis because isn’t it a fact that they usually don’t know what they doing with anything they tackle? I am sure a Liberal president could be just as clueless as Trump is about this thing.

  5. If I didn’t dislike Pence so much I’d feel sorry for him because he really is damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t. If he shockingly takes charge of this and makes sure that the public stays informed, people are treated, test kits are plentiful, etc. then Trump will wind up jealously resenting him. If he screws this up like he did the HIV outbreak in Indiana, then Trump has his scapegoat.
