Trump again claims coronavirus is 'going to just disappear' as US sees record number of new cases

Source: The Independent via MSN

Donald Trump has repeated a claim that the coronavirus is going to “just disappear”, a day after the United States announced a record number of new cases.

“I think we’re gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point that’s going to, sort of, just disappear — I hope,” Mr Trump told Fox Business on Wednesday.

The comments come as more than 48,000 coronavirus cases were announced across the country on Tuesday, the highest daily number since the pandemic began. Eight states reported single-day highs: Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas.

It is not the first time Mr Trump has made the claim that the virus will vanish on its own — one that has been contradicted by his own expert advisors. Speaking in February, when just over a dozen cases had been confirmed on US soil, Mr Trump said: "One day it's like a miracle, it will disappear."

1. I think it's a planned crackdown on news media

Make it illegal to mention coronavirus in public.

Why is it so hard for people to see that?

5. Trump is a big believer

in Dr. Norman Vince Peale's "Power of Positive Thinking". His parents went to Peale's church and IIRC, he and Ivana were married there.

Simply put, Trump's taken this idea to its not-so-logical extreme. If he just believes hard enough that COVID-19 is going to simply go away....then it will.

Of course, it's ridiculous. But hey....that's Trump for you.

9. A true believer that hedges his bets - he insists everyone in the West Wing wear a mask

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/11/white-house-issues-memo-requiring-staff-to-wear-masks-in-west-wing.html
White House issues memo requiring staff to wear masks in West Wing, CNBC, 5/11/20
... The directive from the White House management office was laid out in a memo to staffers Monday afternoon, NBC reported. ... The memo also asked staff members to avoid visiting the West Wing, where the Oval Office is located, unless it is necessary, the sources told NBC.


Something to keep in mind when some fuckhead harasses you about wearing a mask -- if they're so ineffective or the Covid19 is just a hoax, or if only wimps or “Democrat Islamo-Maoists" wear them, then ask the fuckhead why does your fearless leader require everyone near him to wear a mask? Why is he wimpifying his staff -- and by extension himself?

27. I was a fan of Peale in college.

In fact, I give his book full credit for helping me turn my life around completely from a deep depression, and it may have even saved my life.

There is nothing wrong with that philosophy.

That having been said, I DO seem to recall that Peale advocated quite forcefully that effective action needs to be coupled with your positive thinking. In fact, you pretty much need to work your ass off and "meet the Lord halfway", as it were. Only a lazy, total moron would think otherwise, and Trump is the God King of lazy morons.

30. Trump never embraced Dr. Peale's philosophy

Trump has always been incapable of learning. His history proves that point.

For a couple of years, I attended Marble Collegiate Church in NYC and heard a few of Dr. Peale's sermons and many of his successor, Dr. Caliandro. I concur with your observations about the fundamental requirement to work hard and the quality of their philosophies.

I also concur with your observation of the lazy jackass in the White House.

In his own head, he is probably visualizing himself going down Pennsylvania avenue to flower petals dropping down upon him, he is not the President, he is king of the world....

He just can't believe that some actually buy into his ludicrous comments, and as for the rest, they can simply F O.

Trump. Doesn't. Care. Not one bit.
