Trumpers are confused

I do sympathize; it must be very hard to keep changing your narrative to cover each of trump's lies and reversals.
I post a lot in my local paper's comment section. They are surprisingly liberal, with profanity about the only thing that will bring a post down.

One person I often spar with used one of his/her favorite memes yesterday: That there would be no lockdown and panic if we had a Democrat in the White House, and we would be treating this just like another strain of flu and protecting our economy.
I asked them to specifically address two points.
1- Does this then indicate that the Democrats tricked trump into declaring a national emergency over what was basically a partisan hoax designed to make him look bad?
2- How all-powerful are the Democrats that they got every country in the world to also declare this an emergency, with most of them imposing restrictions at least as strict as ours and in most cases more severe?

Still waiting for an answer.

1. Well part of that is probably true

There might not be total lockdown and panic if a Democrat was in the office, but that's most likely because a Democratic President would have listened to the science, acted quickly with implementing a shelter in place, and generally acted with more of an abundance of caution rather than insisting the virus would just disappear after a few weeks on its own. But you know science, pffff, who needs it when you have a President who has that extraordinary gut instinct.

3. Oh, npk!!!!!

You're only adding to the confusion!
What will a Trumpster EVER do if he/she has to consider that a Democrat would have used the system that PRESIDENT OBAMA had put in place to handle a pandemic, as well as allowing the idea that we'd have some "pointy-headed librul" running the government agency designed to handle the current crisis?

Why, its enough to make you want to grab your red hat, your best camo outfit, all of your "GAWD-given weapons" and march down to the Kapital building!



(Oh, and SCantiGOP, you're probably in for a long "wait!" )

6. Probably waiting for a grown-up to 'splain it to him

Or at least a teenager.

Way too many words, and the multi-syllabic ones are especially tough.

7. This same person liked to throw around the phrase "Acquitted Forever"

as a response to the "Indicted Forever" meme.
Someone responded saying that had had been charged with multiple counts of sexual assault and child pornography, but his attorney had the charges thrown out on a technicality, so the first thing he did was change his Facebook page to proudly state that he had been Acquitted Forever.
The trumper never responded, probably not being sure whether that was satire or not.
We know the trumpers have a very hard time understanding 'sarcasm.'
