Notice before Pence and others gave their portion of the breifing they had to praise Trump's fantastic leadership in this crisis?

This is one very bizarrre cult, nauseating.

Aka: huge cruise ships. In Late 2011, into 2012, a massive flu outbreak hit the area. Immediately followed by a very potent stomach virus that affected almost everyone in port canaveral, and surrounding areas. More than once they've been quarantined.
And right up the road is a giant convention center Served by maga thousands of hotel spaces.
Both industries are 4-5 time bigger than they were then.

Some comments from elsewhere after his 'speech':

'It baffles me how half the country can listen to any thing this guy says and go, "yep, that was a sentence".'

'it helps him so much that newspapers and broadcast news pull snippets of him and sequence them in a way that makes sense. when you are watching nightly local news and just catch 30 seconds of him he still doesnt sound smart but its not like, alarming. when you watch him speak live it is ASTONISHING that he is president.'

'He had a piece of paper in front of him yesterday. All he had to do was come out and reassure the country that they were doing everything they could and listening to the doctors/scientists at the CDC.

Instead we got politicized rambling, waffling between it being a non-issue and a huge issue, and Trump passing the buck'

'As a foreigner, I weep for the translators who worked hard to get to the level when you get to officially translate the speeches of importants personalities and end up having to translate Trump.'

'Lol so the Chinese government released a virus to hurt Trumps re-election because they had no doubt he'd fuck up dealing with it and say a bunch of stupid shit as usual and that's somehow their fault that he's incompetent? Hmm it's like their brains are conserving neurons and can only spare a few at a time.'

'"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters"

And his voters applauded their stupidity and his non-existent opinion about their morals.'

Oh, For f*&k's sake... It's no wonder the stock market is tanking... they see through his bullsh*t.

Trump defends huge cuts to the CDC's budget by saying the government can hire more doctors 'when we need them'

He said it was easy to bolster the public-health agency and cited his business approach toward running the federal government.

"I'm a businessperson. I don't like having thousands of people around when you don't need them," Trump said. "When we need them, we can get them back very quickly."

The president said some of the experts targeted by the cuts "hadn't been used for many years" and that additional federal money and new medical staffers could be obtained swiftly since "we know all the good people."

And then there is this:

6 ways the Trump administration has already botched responding to the coronavirus

1. Sick and healthy passengers from a quarantined cruise ship were sent on the same flight home.

2. Despite telling Americans to get tested for the virus, US health agencies are behind the eight-ball with testing lagging behind.
As of Wednesday, only 445 Americans had been tested for the virus, while Switzerland, despite having a population 38 times smaller, is able to conduct 1,000 tests per day.

3. A coronavirus patient in California wasn't tested for days.
Federal restrictions resulted in a California patient with the coronavirus having to wait days to be tested, according to a New York Times report.

Today, California announced there are 8,400 people being monitored in the state for the virus.

4. CDC testing has been limited, so the full extent of the virus stateside is hard to pin down.

5. On top of all that, Trump has made funding cuts to the CDC over the past two years.
In 2018, the CDC axed 80% of its capabilities to combat disease outbreaks due to a funding depletion while the White House jettisoned a position on the National Security Council specifically for respond to a global pandemic. In the latest budget, the White House sought to cut CDC's budget by 16%.

6. A US patient infected with the coronavirus was accidentally released from the hospital after initial tests failed to pick up symptoms.
An American evacuee who was infected with the Wuhan coronavirus was accidentally released from a San Diego hospital.

After being evacuated from the Chinese city of Wuhan earlier this month, the patient was initially brought to a quarantine facility with three others after they all tested negative for the virus.

The person has returned to a US hospital for more observation and isolation.

from wtf's post above "'It baffles me how half the country can listen to any thing this guy says and go, "yep, that was a sentence".' "

It's true!

He was practically incoherent the other night where he was supposed to be reassuring the country. He's failing y'all. He's got 250,000 miles on him, the body is rusting and all the seals are leaking. He no longer has the tact or wit to disguise what a disgusting person he is. It's all out there now.

He will be destroyed in a debate with anyone.

It's almost like not having a national healthcare system put the USA at a disadvantage relative to the "socialist" countries.

A doctor says flu case death rate is 0.1%. Trump says "No it's much higher than that". What's that about people that overestimate their own 'smarts'.

I just heard the Bloomberg radio ad highlighting this stupidity and inability to acknowledge or address this problem. Man he's fast.

    The coronavirus death rate is uncertain. China reports two very different rates for the main infection center and for the rest of the country (much lower). Older people are much more vulnerable, so Japan has a terrible risk.
    One of the problems is the most cases are mild. Some infected people don't get symptoms. Flu is more definite about showing itself.
    Trump hasn't done himself or the country any good. He's still trying to minimize a serious situation.
    BTW, it looks like a great time to find a cheap air fare and visit Italy.

it is widespread across the country. way more than the confirmed cases. many places aren't even allowing people in from the outside. schools and attractions shutting down. sure, take the risk though not being able to go places once there, maybe getting sick and then stuck there while sick seems like a win

So much effort by the lamestream media to undermine the campaigner in chief.
