CNN Is Treating Drumpf As Irrelevant

I'm not any fan of Pence, and would rather they didn't cover him.

But boy is that an insult to Drumpf by essentially telling him they couldn't care less what he has to say by cutting in only after he's done.

18. I think the vice-poodle has more common sense than trumpie.

He sees the larger picture as thousands of American citizens die. I should think his "faith" would guide him to start plotting . . .

He'd like everyone gone and swept away. The last person that should ever have
been in charge of this. Better than spanky, but still.......

8. Trump is worse than irrelevant

His actions have the repeated effect of stopping other people from taking action. For instance, when he bragged that everyone who wants a test can get a test as he did on March 6, people working on getting or developing tests stop what they're doing to see what he's talking about. After all, if there's a testing regimen about to come on line, their time and effort can be better directed elsewhere.

Then, several days or weeks later, when it becomes apparent that Trump was talking out his ass (again), all that time working on testing has been lost. If Trump had just kept his mouth shut, we'd be better off than we are. Testing is just one area, too. He's said and done so many other things that hamper the efforts of the medical professionals and the researchers that it's almost as if he's in league with the virus.

The sooner Trump is ignored and consigned to true irrelevancy, the better of the nation will be.

And not run for reelection. Johnson did that in 1968 when the Vietnam War protests were getting underway.

19. That's the way it should be

This draft dodging coward and mega con artist has really had nothing to offer to any press coverage. He stirs the fire with his offensive rhetoric in order to keep himself in the news. So far he hasn't offered any thing constructive to the Press coverage that others didn't already share.

The Press is playing into his hands, and I refuse to watch him or listen to him, as it makes me sick to my stomach.

23. True, dat.

When Chump rode the Down escalator in June, 2015, I recall saying "Oh hell, he'll be gone by January (2016)." He was such an dark horse, so incredulous as a candidate, that he struck me as nothing more than ants at a picnic. It was his many antics, though, that made him such a delight for the media to highlight him. That same media is finally starting to ridicule him as he deserves to be. Hopefully, their new-founded pushback to Chump will have the same effect as their previous freebie coverage of him did. I'm not holding my breath, though.

22. Good for them. It's a recognition of reality.

 

They are not "treating" him in any particular manner. They are only doing the right thing by not covering a non-story that is harmful to people.

24. Dr. Blix fell asleep long ago,

they snatched her body. She showed a chart of the US that showed the state's capabilities to test. I was a bit shocked when I saw Texas ranked in the highest color. I believe, I could be wrong, that Texas is next to last in the country in testing. Florida also is ranked up there but I don't remember where Florida is ranked.

Texas and Florida are opening up their economies, God help us. How can Blix and Fauci stand on the stage quiet?

I hope it stays that way.

27. He is totally irrelevant.

He offers no truthful or useful information during his campaign speeches each day. I haven't listened to as single word he's uttered in the past three years. I might read transcripts, or news articles about his inane babbling, but since I can't stand the sight of him, and his voice is like nails across a chalkboard for me, I simply don't listen to him. He's dead as far as I'm concerned, and when he finally does die I'll celebrate like it's every New Years Eve, everyone in my family's birthdays, everyone's weddings etc. all rolled into one. It will truly be one of the happiest days of my life.

32. I'd like coverage to be:

- the Western states governors have decided and are implementing abc
- the Eastern states governors have decided and are implementing xyz
- Joe Biden spoke to the nation and said def
- Nancy Pelosi discussed the bills they are passing, ghi

etc

Ignore him and cover people who are actually DOING something!
