It is like a clip from Veep, except it is real



.
@jonathanvswan: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the U.S. is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”

@realdonaldtrump: “You can’t do that.”

Swan: “Why can’t I do that?”


Fucking hell. Seriously - even if they love his racism and grit and trying to dismantle American democracy - they must surely draw the line and this level of a horror show?

Trump: "I think It's under control."

@jonathanvswan: "How? A thousand Americans are dying a day."

Trump: "They are dying. That's true. And it is what it is."


To those who still defend him - do they not understand he is talking about them - IT IS WHAT IT IS?!?! Meh to the lives of over 150k citizens...

It would almost be funny if it wasn't so scary. He is batshit crazy.

6. Hypothetical...

You mother is dying in hospital.

There is a cure available, but your doctor ignores it.

Then when your mom is minutes away from death, the doctor comes in and demands you give him credit for keeping her alive until now because other doctors could never have achieved this in the history of medicine - which is fake anyway.

How would you react?

4. Yeah he is fed bullshit from the sycophants that surround him

And he believes the nonsense they feed him. But that is because he cannot face reality and that is a very dangerous thing in such a stupid man.

7. Exactly!

What very specific statistic can we engineer that tells a good news story?

Hitler: I need to know that our slave labour system is the best in German history.

Nazi Admin: well sir, the employment figures for non-Germans are way up - everyone is saying that.

8. A response which shows his true sociopathology.

Death is just “what it is” WTF??
I’m sure the dead and their suffering families have a different opinion of that matter. What it is is horrific but to him it’s just we the expendable dying.

As for his absolutely insane claim “it’s under control” this is the exact same denial of catastrophic reality that we saw depicted so masterfully in the HBO miniseries Chernobyl. The corrupt collapsing Soviet regime insisted to its people and the world that “it was all under control” never mind the meltdown was about to kill an entire continent. That regime’s denial of reality, suppression or facts, threatening and marginalizing scientists, and refusal to protect its population is exactly what this murderously incompetent cabal is doing. As a result this plague is OUR Chernobyl and the death toll is mounting-indeed it’s now many times the number who died in that catastrophe and until these people are driven from their positions of power over our lives and deaths it will only escalate. Once they are gone they need to be held accountable for their crimes against humanity. Only then will the dead and the suffering have justice.

10. They give this illiterate moron a few

colored pictures and lines on paper, tell him sir this shows you're the greatest. Just say that wave them around a bit and your good. That works most of the time but not when he's face to face with someone who is knowledgeable and keeps pressing for answers he doesn't have. More of this please.

11. He said deaths are going DOWN in FL. Here's the post-reopen 7-Day Trend




It only ticked down at the end because many labs were closed due to the impending storm which also reduced staffing at the state and at hospitals so reporting over this past weekend dropped off
