Putting an idiot who does not believe in science in charge of the response to a pandemic...



How very Trumpian... put a fucking idiot in charge.
Announcement of a prayer circle in 3...2...1...

This will be his entire strategy


After all anything else would be federal intervention on a persons own health choices, were suggesting self isolation and popping to the doctors is not financially viable for the vast majority of those most at risk...

1. trump put Pence in charge because

 

he has no intention of being anywhere near an outbreak site, first responders, hospitals, and people recovering.

I'm thinking Pence will be kept in a secure location when he's back in Washington.

2. The upside of this is

that if Pence botches the job, he can be replaced on the ticket. Is Ivanka ready for her (next) closeup?

3. Is trump setting Pence up now so he can blame him for his failure protecting us, then he can insert

ivankie for his VP, and for self protection? He doesn't like Pence . His appointment shows his contempt for the safety of the American people now. He's again busy going for self protection from this , not to protect the American people by appointing someone like Pence. trump knows he's in deep , deep trouble with this now, especially from his job cuts and funding cuts.

4. people don't get it yet

 

Okay tinfoil hat conspiracy says russia brought this thing about.

Lets sweep that under the rug though and just look at the current situation.

The country has been asked to stay home from school, stay home from work because there's a health crisis.

In a few weeks or a couple months, half the country is going to be sick from a virus.

What a PERFECT time to declare a national emergency. Gosh.. we need help everywhere.. doctors and hospitals need help... people need help with supplies.. who is better able to handle this than the armed forces? or at minimal the national guard?

And who could play the cop role? Ice maybe?

People have immediately dismissed this as anything but nature biting us in the butt but the virus is gift-wrapping the country for trump to finish off.

It's hard to tell whether putting pence in charge is trump being trump or trump sabotaging any real response to this virus.

Going to call my all my Reps today and ask what the Democrats are doing to be pro-active about this.

14. I'd imagine a national call to pray to Jesus to fix it would be his rexponse

Or perhaps bringing back bleeding to rebalance the bodily humours.

6. Maybe the reason for his pence appointment

He knows anyone from CDC or other experts won't lie for him, but pence will.

RE: Some Christians who are aghast at moral collapse see the disease as one of the plagues in the Bible’s Book of Revelation.
Can they explain to us why even righteous Christians in China are being infected?
I thought that Lot and his family were spared the punishment meted on Sodom and Gomorrah?

This may bring the Trump administration down.
If he lies or blames the media then he is done.

Huh? Weatherman, what are you smoking?
Exactly what would Trump be lying about? And the media with its hysteria - manipulated by people like the CDC director (who is the sister of Rod Rosenstein) coming out and giving an unauthorized call to panic - is certainly to blame for much of the “we’re all gonna die” panic.

11. Does anyone ever notice that Trumps greatest problems come out of "nowhere".

What most people think should be obvious it is day to day life that he cannot cope. Have you ever been in the room where someone panics. That is the essential Donald Trump who instantly reverts to lies in order to gain control.

12. God help us

since our own government won't.

Republicans always campaign on how government is ineffective and won't help. Then they get elected and prove it.

16. Thoughts and prayers for America.

Your status as a third world country is now well and truly established.

Be prepared for an uncontrolled outbreak of a nasty virus with a devastating effect that would put any other third world country to shame.

Too late for the adults in the room to take charge, unfortunately. i always thought that planning and hoping to get rid of Trump in the 2020 election was leaving it far too late.
