Is anyone else starting to think America is about to become a global disaster zone? A pariah?

We have the unfortunate collision of trump vs deadly health threat to the nation. Deadly health threat is winning and trump is helping it win.

The rest of the world may well quarantine itself from us. We are a danger to them because of trumpism. The rest of the worlds nations are not going to want to be reinfected, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they locked us out of the rest of the planet until this is totally over or trump is gone.

As Rachel Maddow is demonstrating right now on her show...states and local governments are in a race to acquire the necessary resources to allow their medical personnel survive and treat victims of the corona virus. They are competing not only against each other but against the federal government for these scarce resources.

What kind of president imposes this kind of deadly chaos on his nation and its citizens? This is presidentially induced anarchy.

2. I saw a catalyzing phto somewhere of

Wuhan medical staff in full PPE, and NYC nurses in garbage bags.

Not only have we fallen fast, but much has been an illusion. Much of the rest of the world has known this I think.

6. I also saw that photo.

What must they think? The doctors and nurses in other countries who have been battling this disease for months?... Probably thankful they are not in the US.

I think I am in shock, having a hard time wrapping my brain around what our government is doing to us. I know my anxiety is up, very agitated and weird dreams. So worried for our healthcare professionals. This is all so unbelievable.

3. Mission Accomplished

Less than 1/3 the population of China. A month’s head start. And more cases.

Boom

4. Maybe briefly. We will get rid of him and we will come back.

We are bigger than that rat bastard can destroy. We have resources if there’s anyone to coordinate manufacture and distribution and the states and sane governments are trying. I think they’ll succeed.

5. "Pariah" would be a step up . . .

We're a dumpster fire of magical thinking.

We exalt the dumbass, the obvious, the oblivious and the heavily-armed.

We continue to coast on our achievements of 80 years ago, while breathing death (literally and figuratively) on learning, science, common sense, respect and simple decency.

We could have Shakespeare, Eugene O'Neill, Carl Sagan and Duke Ellington; we get the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Ancient Aliens, Diesel Brothers and The Masked Singer.

We're shot through with tumors of self-interest; pharmaceutical companies happy to kill tens of thousands with their addictive shit drugs, while bribing doctors and politicians to look the other way; health insurance companies that exist for one reason - to make as much money as possible by any means necessary; gun companies that literally do not care how many kids die every year in schools and neighborhoods and Republican politicians that just can't wait to fall to their knees for another NRA/Smith & Wesson blowjob. And despite these obscenities, Nothing. Ever. Changes.

And now we get to pay the price for our stupid, selfish, ideologically envenomated idiocy.

8. Start,... we were placed on that shelf long ago..

......starting to think America is about to become a global disaster zone? A pariah?

Most of the free world gave up on us long ago. G-7 at MAGA ALA LARDOFATSO, the free world said final straw, fuck this, fuck them, fuck that !

Then he tried to buy out the German bio virus lab, and capture an exclusive world hold on ownership of the vaccine - for self enrichment and obscene profits for - His Royal Virus alone.

That was the final final straw. His only buddies now is Putie, Jing, Jung, Jong, The Turk despot, the Israeli despot, the Brazilian despot, and the Saw-die despot & oh, of course, pence.

Can you believe this country has stooped as low as all that ? The world thinks we are stupid, beyond all comprehension.

Do you blame them ?

10. I didn't think it was possible 3 months ago.

But yes, numbers are already projecting toward that and I don't see Trump acting in a way to bend that curve downward. Maybe is Ivanka got the virus he would care, anyone short of that, I doubt that he does.

11. We've been moving in the direction of global pariah

ever since Trump became President.

But the corona virus really isn't any worse here than in any number of other countries.
