1. Even as Happy Talk Donnie has abandoned his "Hoax" allegation,

he has NOT walked it back. He hasn't SAID that he was mistaken, or that the Hoax is NOT a hoax.

So, it's likely still true that MILLIONS of Trump's supporters believe that the COVID-19 pandemic is a hoax, because Donnie hasn't said that it isn't. It's quite likely, then, that there will be MILLIONS of people who will get infected because they are ambivalent about protecting themselves and others.

6. Trump never admits to being wrong. Never. It won't happen.

 

Trump never admits he's wrong. His toadies give him sharpies and put out false press releases to back him up.

When confronted with his actions, he simply lies and says "I never said that" or "That's not what I meant" or "I was just joking." These are all in his standard playbook. He will continue to use them.

7. He would have to walk it back if he's interested in cultivating

and keeping his cult members healthy. I can't imagine the sheer numbers of people who'll be waking up too late. I'm wondering why actual footage of him saying this crap isn't making at least some of them them think twice.

3. So, the Trumpies have settled on "He didn't say that! He's saying the media/Dem response.."

"...is a hoax."

This is a nice soundbite for them, but what does it actually mean? What part was the "hoax" part?

12. Well, lordy, these here are the tapes!

And he's calling it a "hoax" out loud, over & over. Maybe he was *trying* to imply that Dems were helping this country in the quickest way, and we can't have that.
Maybe the "hoax" part means he thinks Democrats are being "phony" or something?
I have no idea either, because neither of us knows how he comes up with all this horseshit he does.
That must make us sane.

13. They say it and hope you don't scratch the surface

"He didn't say the virus was a hoax, but that the Dem and media criticisms were a hoax!"

But weren't those criticisms simply that the virus was extremely dangerous and he was not paying enough attention to it? Do you not agree that the virus is extremely dangerous (they all have to pretend that they've always agreed with this now)? Are you completely satisfied with the Admin's early response (They will say that they are, inexplicably)?

15. Oh, yes-- we saw him do that nauseating pretending to have

been there from the start, working as fast as they could. Plus, I saw Seema Verna make all kinds of faces behind him as he asserted that he tries never to shake anyone's hand.

22. They have a harder time explaining the "There's 15 cases, soon to zero" moment

It is essentially indefensible.

Some say "It was hard to tell the extent of the virus," at which point you say "I thought they were on it the whole time? They were both extremely proactive and knowledgeable AND didn't understand the extent? Is that your answer?"

I've heard one RWNJ say "soon to zero" doesn't mean that it won't go up, even to the thousands - just that in some short amount of time, it will crest, and go donw to zero." How do you say anything to somebody like that, other than "Sir, are you insane?"

23. Oh yes, THAT.

"Fifteen soon to zero"! Huh, mr. president?

And for god's sake, if someone *finally* uttered the words, "Sir, are you insane?" to trump, or to even demand he explain what he's saying, that would give me a modicum of joy.

14. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, someone should at least try

to ask him if he remembers saying the Pandemic is a hoax? It would take four seconds; "You called it a hoax?" Or "You called it a hoax...", Or my favorite, "YOU CALLED IT A HOAX!" In front of the cameras, please.

They only missed his expert prediction:

when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero

9. This is probably not his first premature ejaculation.

Slightly ahead of the news, eh Donnie? After this performance, he should have been Target #1.

17. You would think! It baffles me that his fans are not

getting it, the fact that he is *so* cheerfully going to lead them to their own demise. He really should have been target # 1.

10. I never thought I see the days such as these we're all going through now, that ...

actually reeks of fear and the unknown. And one person that is associated w/ these fears? Trump.

No one else.

20. There's no way to adequately prepare for a "leader"

who is hellbent on causing malicious harm to his own people, not here in America. While I knew at some point we'd have trouble, this coronavirus is off the scale. The R's are either suffering from it or helping trump make things far worse.
