Townhall: "He didn't answer anything," Tubiana told me afterward. "He was lying through his teeth."

Paul Tubiana of Bethlehem, PA was the first questioner. He asked: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2016. I'm a conservative, pro-life and diabetic. I've had to dodge people who don't care about social distancing and wearing face masks. I thought you were doing a good job with the pandemic response until about May 1. Then you took your foot off the gas pedal. Why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus?"



I held my breath. Trump has never been challenged about his mishandling of the pandemic quite like that before. Trump's initial response: "Well, we really didn’t, Paul." And then he blamed China and promised that "we're within weeks of getting" a vaccine.



"He didn't answer anything," Tubiana told me afterward. "He was lying through his teeth."



Tubiana is like so many people: As the pandemic raged, "I was feeling scared, alone and powerless," he said. He said "there were failures of government on both sides of the aisle" last winter and spring, but he felt like Trump stopped providing leadership as the crisis continued from spring to summer. He said he thought Trump stuck to "canned responses" at the town hall.

"there were failures of government on both sides of the aisle"

I'm sure that went unchallenged too.

Hi


Donald Trump is a crazy, lying bigot, said ... his closest allies?

Then Sen. Ted Cruz says, “Whatever he does he accused everyone else of doing. The man cannot tell the truth but he combines it with being a narcissist. A narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen.”

Cut to Sen. Rand Paul, saying, “My concern is that he would grab up that power and really treat the country as sort of his little bully fiefdom.”

Haley, Conway and Beck were critics
Then former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who’ll speak at the Republican convention this week says, “Donald Trump is everything I taught my children not to do in kindergarten.”

Sen. Marco Rubio says, “Donald Trump has been exploiting working Americans for forty years.”

Lindsey Graham again, “He’s a race-bating xenophobic religious bigot.”

Long-time senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway says of Trump, “He says he’s for the little guy but he’s actually built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy.”

Before he became Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, “Donald Trump said the other day that if he ‘told a soldier to commit a war crime he would go do it.’ ”

Conservative radio and TV host Glenn Beck says, “I don’t think Donald Trump has even read the constitution, knows what’s in the constitution.”


having posted that; I swear I self-deleted that post as several others made my observation much earlier.

16. It's the same color that tells his brain that 'there were failures on both sides of the isle'.

No there fucking well were not. I'm sorry for his troubles, but WE WARNED THEM. He voted for trump anyway, because the cruelty WAS the point.

Now that cruelty has impacted him personally, and were supposed to feel all bad for him I suppose.
Hes welcome to be mad and hes welcome to vote for biden or stay home.

But that's about the extent of my empathy at this point.

4. Joe Biden is going to stick it to Trump during the debates...

With that SEG of his and the TRUTH.

I will be watching Trump's body language. That will indicate to me that Trump is on the defensive , unprepared to challenge. The LIES will be flowing like a river that had its dam burst wide open. Then Joe will go in for the kill. He will be prepared.

24. One of the debate rules need to be a dead microphone when it's not your turn.

The candidates have visible timers showing the time remaining. They need to know that as soon as the red light goes on, their microphone goes off. Don't allow him the mechanism that lets him talk over anyone.

What in the ever loving f*** were Democrats supposed to be doing? Did this idiot forget that we tried to remove him by impeachment but it was his party that was just okey doke with someone in charge who had zero experience?

The stupidity boggles my mind.

8. Yeah more like it started to personally effect that voter in May and suddenly it got very real.

Yeah Trump has been a dumpster fire from day one not just on COVID but on everything. Until May that "everything" wasn't hurting this Trump voter though.

15. End of April, early May Trump had enough anti maskers out there causing problems for the Dem Govs

that were handling covid giving this man the security that he was feeling at the time. Trump had nothing to do with it, the Dem Govs were ignoring Trump doing what needed to be done.

18. If someone is puzzled, confused, and frightened, I want to feel sympathy for them.

But if they say they voted for Trump in 2016, all I want to say to them is "What the hell did you think was going to happen when you voted for an abysmally incompetent, ignorant, hate-filled idiot!?!?"
