1. It's like Trump opened Pandora's box.

It's almost as if good or even semi-competent leadership might help prevent a lot of full-blown horrors from being unleashed upon humanity.

4. I can't wait to see how messed up our response to that will be

Hopefully it gets contained over there because if it comes here you know itíll rage uncontrolled because our administration is clueless.

Bloody hell.

6. Trump will find a way to make it worse.

The US used to take leadership and send resources. Trump doesn't want to do jack shit because he is too stupid to understand that to prevent something like this from hitting our shores, you have to stop it in its tracks. I think mostly it's he just doesn't care.

7. Well he already defunded WHO (illegally)

So there goes that line of defense.

Hopefully China will give them the adequate resources they need.

Knowing Donny Dumbfuck he is likely to try and fly in some patients here to show he can do better than Pres. Obama did and then end up killing 5,000,000 Americans.

In a month.

3. I hope the WHO has the resources to quash the outbreak before it gets here.

Because if Trump is in charge of keeping us save....

8. I thought there was a vaccine for Ebola now?

Wasn't one developed after the last outbreak when cases made it all the way to the USA?
