CNN Headline

Current story says: Trump concerned that aides contracting Corinavirus will undercut his message that the outbreak is waning.

Translation: trump very scared that if people who work for him die, it will be bad for him politically.

He is barely human.

But there ARE some people who work for the orange, pussy-grabbing nutcase whose deaths wouldn't disturb me one little bit.

I'm hoping they stay healthy.

46. Pretty Weak!

At least half of everyone there is just a working stiff.
They're not power people. They're just earning a check.
We know how we get when a conservative says, if someone's job is lost, go get another job.
Now, it's OK to tell these people the same?
I simply don't believe they're all on it.
For one thing, with this maladministration, there's no plan. They're operating on the whims of the day.
Everyday workers probably nearly whiplash!

ANd this refers to a higher level person so they most likely agree with him.

2. I don't think he is human at all.

I remember Tony Schwartz (author of The Art of The Deal), in the months leading up to the 2016 election, going on MSNBC and CNN with a look of panic in his eyes trying desperately to warn the county that Trump was nothing more than a dark void. He said that Trump had no soul.

He only cares that his grip on power is slowly fading, and though he does not realize or accept it quite yet, the end is near.

If they have but one life to give for him, then so be it.

8. I don't think Trump would feel sad if his own kids died

The sadness he would feel if he does feel sad would be if it was inconvenient to him in some way. For example if they died of covid 19 it would be sadness over what the OP says. That it would hurt him politically .

I don't think he would feel the usual parent/family/friend sadness if Ivanka died who is supposed to be his favorite. He likes her because of how she benefits him . He likes to show her off . But I don't think he would feel sad over losing someone he loved because I don't think he loves anyone (other than himself maybe and even then it's in a disgusting way).

I said before that Trump would easily sell out his kids including Ivanka to save his own ass if he ever got into legal trouble. He would easily have them go to prison for years or life if it meant saving his own ass.

9. Of course, he isn't worried about his staff. He's worried aboiut not winning the damn electioon!

I wonder how the 2 staffers that got the virus feel about his comments? I've got to believe if there were 2 cases in the WH, there will be more. I also believe those voters who he's worried about losing are already thinking, damn, if the WH can't be protected, what's that mean for us?

Looks like DT has finally run into something that doesn't care if he bad mouths it, likes about it, or throws a bunch of tantrums, it's the enemy that's more powerful than HIM!

The coronavirus will not be intimidated by his "absolute rule". It is every bit as uncaring as he is.
