Ignorance and incompetence vs. intentional slow-walking a solution to the pandemic?

Iím thinking this behavior of the trump administration is intentional. And it has to do with Nov. 3.
This makes me sick to my stomach but I canít get it out of my head. Your thoughts?

1. Ignorance, incompetence, stalling

until Trump/Jared finds a way to make money off of the tests and supplies.

2. Haven't quite put my finger on

the whole intent angle yet. Yes, it's intentional but how do they intend to get to their objective? It pisses me off to where I am dusting off my gloves and getting back in the fight on a political track. Not taking this sitting down. At least two of my immediate relatives are in direct danger from this shitstorm and I'm pissed. One of the endangered family members is my very aged mom and she will die alone if she is beset with this illness... That really pisses me off since that is her greatest fear, dying alone.

This unforgivable and I will hold it against every R politician for the rest of my life.

5. Best wishes for your relatives, esp. your Mom. I'm angry too. Angry as hell. I'm a nurse (retired)

and when I see that medical staff dont have personal protection equipment i want to do something that Iíll regret. These people put their lives on the line every day and they are being treated like shit.

7. And thet brings me to the other family member

who is an RN is a large city in Calif. and the hospital where she works has been dedicated to treating covid19 patients. So I'm very concerned about her too.

3. I think it is intentional.

It is more than a coincidence that the White House, the Republican Senate, and FOX News all got on the same page at the same time.

6. That's their idea of managing the situation.

It's who they are. It's what they do.

They're not capable of addressing real problems, and have no interest in doing so. It's all just managing the propaganda while stealing everything that's not nailed down and prying up what is.

I have no idea how this will all eventually settle out, but it's a helluva maelstrom going on.

4. I also agree that they're letting it happen on purpose.

This is merely based on every observation I've had of the trump admin. It's deliberate. It makes me sick to my stomach.

8. Survival of the fittest? Culling the herd?

I wouldnít be surprised if that was brought up to him. Classic Stephen Miller thinking.

12. First off, remember that he dissolved our Pandemic Response Team in 2018.

He stalled because he's ignorant and incompetant. He immediately called it a hoax and blamed the Democratic Party. FOX parrotted his bullshit and the GOP followed in lock-step. The stock market sunk every time he opened his yap, and so here we are.

IMO the only way he could have intentionally used this pandemic as a political weapon is if he could restrict it to Democratic majority areas. You can't do that with Twitter or a Sharpie.

Enter Joe Biden.

Joe actually KNOWS what to do and presented a well-laid out plan on his website and in a public address to the nation. The creature is already scared shitless of Joe, and Joe's address showed our nation what a REAL President looks like. So the creature finally decided to try acting presidential but it's too little, too late.
