As I listened to Rachel detailing....

....the many announcements Trump made in the presence of all the business leaders of all the programs that were to be rolled out, like testing in parking lots, etc., but which have not materialized, I couldn't help but think of the famous aspect of the Ukraine quid pro quo in which the Ukraine President was urged to make just an announcement that an investigation was underway. That's all that was needed, just an announcement (so that the story, the propaganda, could follow from that).

It certainly seems like that's what's happening now with the Trump administration coronavirus non-response. Make an announcement, an empty announcement, for appearances' sake only to make it look like there's a Federal response, to deflect from and cover for the fact that they have no intention and never had an intention to do anything....It's all been a p.r. show by the p.r. President. And behind the show? He doesn't care if people in blue states are dying, if Democrat governors are left to fend for themselves and look incompetent, if healthcare workers have no supplies....He only wants to deflect attention away from the schemes of stealing supplies and selling them for a profit, promoting "cures" to which he has financial ties, etc., not to mention the workings of a very sick personality that only seeks to punish those who did not and will not vote for him, who are not loyal to him, or in the case of SDNY who may be seeking to bring him to justice.

It's the only way he knows how to operate.....a very sick and cynical individual....

1. Great comparison

Thanks.

He does expect his followers to believe whatever he says, but I believe it's wearing this in places. Hope...

10. Great. It takes different minds, working together,

to clearly identify what's going on.

Now we need a way to clearly communicate his hypocrisy in saying "I have all the power" and "I take no responsibility." Never in a million years would his acolytes let their children get away with this.

3. Spot on analysis Sogo

I've had much the same thoughts as you. I don't think this is simply about incompetence, although it's obvious he's in over his head. I think this is being done on purpose.

5. There's a reason he was on a reality TV show.

It's all about 'show' to him. He's a con man, playing the shell game. But there's nothing under any of the shells. He is the ultimate snake oil salesman. That's all he has ever been.

7. That was such an obvious dog and pony show on the WH lawn.

And yet Americans fell for it and he got a bump in the polls.

But people are starting to realize he hasn't done jack shit for them.

8. His brain-washed cult (an unbelievable 40%)...

would crawl over burning coals and broken glass to follow him through the gates of hell. No amount of facts, truths or reason will ever change their opinion of their “Christ” in the flesh.
