    And 99% of them avoidable with a decent president in charge. 50K folks in the hospital, 1K deaths a day. The interview and rationale would be comedy gold, except their are dead people involved.

    Taiwan population 50 million.
    Deaths around 200.

    This does not exactly scale accordingly.

    He followed the science. WHO and CDC stated in late January this was no biggy. That it couldn’t be spread by humans.

    Good thing he initiated a task force and travel bans.

    Instead of an ID test for voting how about an IQ test.

    Interesting that you ask for a return of literacy tests.

    Shows what we get when history isn't studied.

    Can ANYONE show me an unbiased, no snowflake prearranged question and answer session that is not limitied to 3 minutes that the current DemoRat candidate for president has agreed to since he started his campaign.

    When that certain ANYONE finishes their expected answer full of lies, twisted bull shit and deflections...I have a second question to ask.

    What happened to the fought for "just three" debates that the DemoRats are now trying to eliminate by any method they can find?

    The O.P is trying to compare the multitude of attack and trap questions asked of a sitting president during three and a half years of interviews and press conferences to a basement dwelling mole that sadly has a case of mild dementia or worse. So do not attempt the futile task of looking for this O.P. to post anything that resembles truth, facts, unaltered documentation, or the act of using ones mind before engaging ones two cell brain...if that is even possible?

    I don't think Trump gets it, but his handlers must. Yet they still sent him out there with useless info.

    Oh you mean the made up controversy?

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/04/media/right-wing-media-biden-trump-debate/index.html

    In a Monday night statement, Biden spokesperson TJ Ducklo poured cold water on such coverage. Ducklo told me, "Donald Trump and his allies at Fox News have decided an imaginary controversy about debates will be their latest attempt to distract Americans from the president's disastrous response to the coronavirus, which has cost 150,000 Americans their lives and left millions jobless."
    "This is not a mystery," Ducklo added. "The debate commission has invited both candidates to participate in three debates. Joe Biden has accepted. Donald Trump has not. Mystery solved."

    Coverage of such comments from the Trump campaign should really stress that only one campaign has actually suggested skipping the debates. And it's not Biden's...

    I guess you are too stupid to compare other countries numbers with ours. This does not come as a surprise.

    Two seconds is all it took to find an article which shows you are full of shit. Two seconds. Please explain why Trump then waited two months to even start to change his tone.

    It's time for the clown show to end.

    This again? Imagine Cuomo in charge...and imposing the NY "send infected patients to nursing homes" strategy nationwide? Or Biden's "hug an Asian" day in response to trying to restrict travel from China. Much more effective than Trump's approach.

    Once again you’re wrong, and further proof you’re another low information voter.

    Jan. 14, WHO repeated the Chinese assertion that there was no “clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”

    Jan. 23, the agency’s director-general stated the coronavirus was “not yet a global health emergency.”

    When the agency finally issued such a declaration on Jan. 30, it was after an official WHO visit to Beijing, which led the director-general to laud “China’s commitment to transparency and to protecting the world’s people.”

    Trump’s task force was started Jan. 29.
    Trump’s travel bans to China start Jan. 30.
    Trump’s travel bans to Europe start Mar. 12.

    ———————————-
    A more complete timeline:



    Here is a key fact: In the beginning, China lied. People died. Although the first case of the coronavirus was reported in Wuhan, China in early December 2019, the Chinese authorities continued through January 2020 to downplay the potential for the disease to spread.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) reinforced China’s falsehoods, saying on Jan. 14 that “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in Wuhan, China.” This was five to six weeks after the opposite was confirmed to be the case in Wuhan.

    Biden’s supposed chronicle of Trump administration failures derides the president’s statement on Jan. 22, saying, “We have it totally under control, it is one person, coming in from China…” What was actually happening in the United States on Jan. 22? It was one person coming in from China. And the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had yet to confirm the human-to-human spread of the virus.

    So, what did we know? When did we know it?


    On Jan. 17, the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that American citizens returning from travel-restricted countries were being rerouted to specific airports, where they would be screened and isolated. CDC on that day also stated that, “based on current information, the risk from 2019-nCoV to the American public is currently deemed to be low.”

    Japan, South Korea, and Thailand reported their first cases of novel coronavirus on Jan. 20.

    On Jan. 21, the first case of coronavirus in the United States was reported, of a man who had traveled from Wuhan, China. That is the case President Trump referred to the next day

    The Biden ad skips from Jan. 22 to Feb. 27, ignoring crucial developments during that time period.


    Jan. 24: The CDC confirmed the second U.S. case of coronavirus, adding again that “based on what we know right now, the immediate risk to America remains low.”

    Jan. 28: The WHO published another statement about the coronavirus, with a photograph and headline saying: “WHO, China leaders discuss next steps in battle against coronavirus outbreak.” Pictured are WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in Beijing with Chinese President Xi Jinping. According to the release, “The WHO delegation highly appreciated the actions China has implemented in response to the outbreak, its speed in identifying the virus and openness to sharing information with WHO and other countries.”

    Think about that: On Jan. 28, the WHO praised China for its “speed and openness” in dealing with the virus. The same day, President Trump expanded U.S. airport screenings to identify travelers showing symptoms and instituted mandatory quarantines.

    On Jan. 30, the WHO declared a global health emergency of international concern.


    On Jan. 30, the CDC confirmed publicly for the first time the person-to-person spread of Wuhan virus and applauded WHO’s decision. That day, the president created the White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate efforts regarding this new disease.

    The next day, Jan. 31, the president declared coronavirus a U.S. public health emergency and issued the ban on travel between the United States and China. On that same day, the Senate voted on the production of additional documents in the impeachment trial of President Trump. Campaigning in Iowa that day, Biden criticized President Trump’s China travel ban, saying during an Iowa campaign event, “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia.”

    Feb. 4: The White House directed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to step up coronavirus diagnostic testing procedures.

    Feb. 5: The CDC issued a public statement saying, “While we continue to believe the immediate risk of 2019nCoV exposure to the general public is low, CDC is undertaking measures to help keep that risk low.”

    Feb. 18: The CDC reaffirmed that the “risk to Americans from coronavirus is low.”

    Feb. 20: The administration raised travel warnings to their highest level for Japan and South Korea.

    It was not until Feb. 26 that the first case of suspected local transmission in the United States was announced by the CDC. President Trump that day named Vice President Pence to lead the Coronavirus Task Force. The next day, Feb. 27, Pence named Dr. Deborah Birx to serve as the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator.

    On Feb. 29, the first death from the coronavirus was recorded in the United States. On that date, President Trump halted travel with Iran.

    On March 11, the WHO declared coronavirus a worldwide pandemic. The next day, on March 12, President Trump imposed travel restrictions on Europe and elsewhere. Biden criticized that decision also.

    Then, on March 13, President Trump declared a national emergency.

    If Pelosi believes the president should have done something at the beginning, when exactly does she think was the ‘beginning’? Was it during the impeachment proceedings that Pelosi instigated? Should Pelosi bear some responsibility for what she perceives as the president’s failure to focus on the coronavirus back in January?

    The single most important step taken by President Trump was his closing of U.S. travel with China, which happened on Jan. 31, something the president reminds us at every briefing.

    He’s right, but what he doesn’t say is he made that decision at a time the CDC was assuring us the risk to America was low, the WHO was covering for China, Democrats were trying to impeach the president, and Biden was attacking the decision as xenophobic.

    It is impossible to overestimate the number of American lives saved by that momentous decision by President Trump on January 31. And no media or Pelosi false narratives or phony Biden campaign ad can change the truth about the real chronology of the coronavirus.


    NOW that you have all the facts, you can fuck right off,

    The only problem is if you open my article from 1/30 you see your handcrafted timeline is a croc of shit. I don't know what's sadder, the fact you spent time on that, or the fact that your peddling it. All the items you mentioned were nowhere near enough and most were too little too late. You also conveniently left out all the great foot in mouth talking points from our dear leader. APAC countries laid a easy blueprint, which Trump promptly ignored. You live in a dream world where one look at the numbers shows how out of touch with reality you are.

    150K dead
    1K dead per day
    50K in hospitals
    Infection rates through the roof to this day.
    Testing inadequate and too slow to this day.
    All on Trumps watch.

    This is more than the entire EMEA combined. I love how you guys are constantly talking travel ban travel ban which was absolutely useless as the virus was already here. You have multiple dates in your fake timeline which are incorrect and waaaaaay later than posted in my CDC article from Jan 30th. You struggle with the truth, no wonder you like Trump.

    I guess you can eat a shit sandwich? Or maybe you prefer a bag of dicks?

    Too late!??!?

    He started a task force a day before WHO said it was a problem...and initiated Chinese travel bans the day of!

    Meanwhile, a month later, Piglosi is walking around Chinatown SF saying come on down, go shopping, no problem.

    Too late....you’re a fucking mouthbreather

    My lord. You have posted some doozies. Let's look at Taiwan. How many people are there? Who or what controls their population? I would bet a single centralized government. They are a democracy and not a Republic. Do you understand the differences? We have 50 state governors plus at least 3 more territorial governors. Taiwan operates totally different from the US. If you went there you would realize this. Please tell me where you got this statistic about 99% of the deaths were avoidable.....from the Onion? There were cases in this country long before we knew about this disease (in December). They were incubating and passing the disease on to others by the time even the WHO took action. Please tell me who ordered people into nursing homes to die. Who ordered protests to go on? Who controls the management of the virus in each state? I have asked this several times before. Yet you and several others just choose to ignore it and blame Trump for all of this. I would say after reading your post, you are not very good at this.
