Donald Trump wants children back in the classrooms because....

...he thinks that might permit more people to enter back into the job market, thus lowering the unemployment rate, thus making it look better for him on election day.

He doesn't care about the health of the children, or the teachers, or anyone else that might contact the virus.

He is thinking about what is best for himself.

It's as simple as that.

1. Yep! Because someone told him the reason

people canít work is they donít have childcare. The health and/or safety of anyone is immaterial.

I think he wants to see as many infected and dead as he can before he leaves office. We can call it Biff's revenge.

Everything act of--or lack of action by--this maladministration serves to either harm America or harm its citizens.

9. I watched a short clip

Was expecting to see an educator instead tRump came on first...

Only reason he gave was unsupported.

All he said was it was important, very important. No reason why so important.

Any thinking person would need to see the importance behind the importance. Know what I mean??? 😜😳🤪🤯

25. In February 1981, freshly inaugurated Ronald Reagan......

got up in front of the TeeVee cameras in the white house with a graph showing two lines. One going up and right, the other going down. Pointing to the upward line he said, "this is the republican tax plan". Pointing to the other line, the one going down to the bottom right corner, he said, "this is the result if the failed legislation of irresponsible democrats has it's way". There was no explanation given for that pronouncement. No data or tangible substance to support such a conclusion. It was a "trust me" moment brought to you by the Gipper made flesh. The audience (having pre-empted all 3 networks, it entailed everybody watching TeeVee at 7:00 pm eastern time on a weekday evening) faced the choice of accepting his word that he could divine the fate of the economy or realizing that he was a charlatan taking a big political gamble. His gamble was successful, he got his tax breaks. And 2 years later he had to revoke them because they resulted in the biggest job loss recession since the "stagflation" of 1973-75. The establishment news media was stunned into complacency which evolved into compliance. They haven't asked many questions of substance or demanded legitimate answers since. They've pretty much stayed with the "horse race" aspect of things to the exclusion of all others.
"Any thinking person would need to see the importance behind the importance. Know what I mean???" Yes. If they only trusted their lying eyes.

29. Because it is hard for parents to go back to work if the kids aren't in school

I remember Mayor Diblasio saying that when this whole thing started. Not sure if I spelled Diblasio correctly. He didn't want to close down schools because it would be hard for parents to work.

13. Claim of political reasons for closures is classic Trump projection

He is prolific at lying, not good at it. He blurts out the rationale for his statements thinly disguised, choosing a side on a non-existent political battle. You could edit out everything he said apart from "political reasons" and come away with the same reading of the statement.

14. The thing that Chump and McTurtle are too stupid to realize...

There are no jobs.

Many of the jobs lost due to COVID are gone forever.

Even after the pandemic starts to wind down, the unemployment rate will be higher than the Great Recession.

23. For most working families the only "child care" they have is school

 

Unfortunately most people, when faced with a choice between the possibility that they might get sick versus the certainty that they will lose their jobs and homes if they can't work, are going to choose to roll the dice. And they will rationalize that decision, and in doing so "might" give Trump credit for making the decision for them. It is of course unconscionable that we are putting families in that position to begin with, but I think that is the political calculus in the White House.

24. The Back-to-School Buying Spree

 

Is a boon to the economy. Parents are rushing to buy school supplies and clothes and other items. In some states they have tax free days to encourage spending. BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS: TRUMP WANTS TO SAY HE REBUILT THE ECONOMY BEFORE NOV.

30. My first thought when the orange asshole started on DEMANDING that kiddos go back to school.

He wants Mommy and Daddy to have the schools open so that they have childcare and they can go back to work. Fuck the kiddos...it's the economy that matters to the orange asshole.

31. If all I am is a babysitter

Then I want Babysitter pay!

600 students

$10/hr That's reasonable, right?

X 3 days a week (# of times I see them)

$18,000 a week

Deal!
