1. Just another bald-faced lie. Nothing to see here.

What on earth is humorous about this "joke"? Nothing. Because it wasn't meant as a joke-- unless everything Trumpy says and does is a joke.

3. Not a joke according to Chad Wolf, the acting Homeland Security secretary

It's just "frustration". I'd add that it is "frustration" that it hasn't magically gone away as Trump predicted multiple times. In the meantime I am expressing my "frustration" that Trump has not magically gone away multiple times a day.

5. The man who can launch nukes was just joking

What if he decides that bombing California would be a good joke?

There is nothing more dangerous than a cornered madman.

He was doing a mike-check for his weekly radio address and said this:

7. I posted the photo on my Facebook timeline to get more exposure....

with this added wording.....

The 120,643 deaths and climbing from COVID1-19 and the rising number of cases in the United States are no LAUGHING MATTER nor something to JOKE about. But, the POTUS thinks so. These deaths were HUMAN BEINGS somebody knew and loved.

We have a choice this November. A return to human Decency or continued corruption of what we hold dear.

We do have a CHOICE this November. VOTE BLUE!!!

8. So. . . Every time he has said this, he has been joking? EVERY time?

And why in the hell is anybody asking his trade advisor what he meant?

11. What is amazing to me is how easy it would be to spin if they weren't stupid

If you reported the percentage of positive tests, that number would likely go down with more testing.

It certainly would be compared to earlier figures when they were limiting tests to only people showing symptoms.
But if you encourage everyone to get tested - even those without symptoms, then the percentage of positive results would go down.

So there is a path that would both increase the testing and be able to spin the numbers to make them look positive. But they are either too stupid or too lazy to do that. Instead they would rather pretend the problem goes away if you don't look at it.


(Just to clarify - I am not suggesting that the number of cases has diminished. It clearly is increasing. I'm just pointing out how it is possible to actually do the right thing and still play number games to make yourself look good. As bad as that is, it is far better than what they are doing now.)

12. "Trump tells it like it is", supporters say...

...so why do they need to explain him so often.

Telling things as they are in obtuse and convoluted language with all the clarity of swamp muck.

What a schmuck is each and everyone of Trump's fanatics.

13. DID ANYBODY EVEN TRY TO TELL HIM...

Not to mention testing at all....can he be advised in any way, in any capacity. There is no way a man can be lost so deep in his own self importance that he can't recognize how damaging his bullshit is..

And the conservative think tank boys might say this....they might say that....they may say he meant this or he meant that--it doesn't matter, he should not speak on something of this nature unless he is prepared to communicate to the public in a manner that will not lead him to be misunderstood---DAMN THAT'S PRESIDENT 101! You can say "oh, I think I know what he really means", but that's not what he said. He didn't say what he really meant to say, he said what he said and that's what we know. DOES HE NOT HAVE PEOPLE IN HIS IMMEDIATE ADMIN TO TELL HIM THIS? WHERE'S ROBERT KELLY? It seems that since he left everything has gotten a lot worse. Apparently, he was the adult in the room.

IMAGINE IF WE HAD TAKEN HIS APPROACH IN CONTROLLING THE AIDS VIRUS.

14. Now it's just "a passing observation" per VP Pence

I'm getting dizzy.

They are sure struggling with this one.





Ed O'Keefe

@edokeefe

President Trump’s comments at an Oklahoma campaign rally about slowing down testing for #Coronavirus were just “a passing observation” and not meant in jest, @VP Pence told governors on Monday, multiple people on the call tell @cbsnews.

15. VIDEO - Here's a one minute video of that speech segment on testing

https://news.yahoo.com/tulsa-rally-trump-suggests-u-145354962.html

It's clear from this that he is totally serious about what he considers too much testing being a bad thing and all's it does is find more cases

The only humor he attempted was ridiculing testing a 10 year old "with the sniffles who will recover in about 15 minutes", and they find he tests positive, and "that's a case, that's a case" as if that's somehow ridiculous and somehow shouldn't be counted as a case.

16. Here's a joke Donald Trump would like:

"A poor bum comes up to me, says, 'Oh, Mr. Trump, I lost my job, I have no money. You're rich. You own many very successful businesses. Can you help me?'

"So I punched him right in the face. AH-HA-HA-HA-HA!"

17. That's just it... we know the man has no sense of humor...

But it's said to his base. A base that doesn't believe in science, maybe religion however I am sure many of them don't live like Christians... (Idk much about the Christian Religion, except what I have read.. My family is Buddhist.)

so He is basically encouraging them not to wear a mask... hence they nod their heads, like willful sheep.. right into the jaws of the waiting wolf Covid 19. His base is so stupid... they think, okay we can go out and party now with no masks and get in each others face and scream and be joyous! THIS is ALL A DEMOCRAT hoax, they been told.. There was no Real VIRUS... because if there was, Trump would have been telling them to wear a mask and be wearing a mask himself.

I SAW a photo the other day of a woman wearing a TEE shirt, that she obviously made... that read... DON'T WORRY MR TRUMP, YOU CAN TOUCH MY P**SY ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!

It had a big arrow pointing down from the message to between her legs, (like as if no one knew what she was talking about or maybe someone needed a sign pointing out where sex organs were located..in case, you know, someone didn't know.)

So what he is doing is basically killing off the people who love and adore him. People older .. more venerable -people with low immune systems, with bad hearts and kidneys. People who are obese... have diabetes...lung problems from years of smoking, ...and now
they are showing up to a rally, in the middle of a pandemic.. not wearing masks because if people had to wear a mask, the President would be wearing one.

Instead they believe the entire Covid 19 is a Democratic hoax... to some how help Biden's election. They believe in this Self absorbed
uneducated fool, who thinks injecting someone with bleach, makes him a near genius.Who in all likely hood could just place his hands on the sick, (if he wanted to) and heal them like some evangelical preacher..

They are following someone who is sick...mentally...and believe that if he came out and said the Clouds from now on should be the color pink, ...they will start calling them Pink Clouds...

And the Rich Republicans will chuckle and call a drink "The pink Trump cloud" ...


But all is not lost...we know certain Republicans are working against him.. and this might be what we need to turn the tide. Because any reasonable person will vote against this would be dictator. We also know if he wins, this country will not last another four years of Donald Trump...he will probably declare himself a King...and the Republicans will think its Camelot all over again! Democracy will stop breathing and die.


i could honestly see Trump taking the actual Constitution and demand its destruction. Could you imagine the loss of that alone??

21. Donnie, you are too ignorant and stupid to understand sampling.

You ignore that when testing is increased per standard time interval, the NUMBER OF NEGATIVES is increased. Then, by your logic, increasing sampling and looking only at negatives would make suppression efforts look more effective (which is false). So, you can buy some cheap "success" -- increase the sampling rate and watch the number of negatives increase.

The error in your assertion that increasing testing will find more positives (it may happen) is that you ignore the number of negatives.

Both the numbers of positives and negatives must be taken into account to get a result for trend that can be compared to other trends of variable sample size. That is, public health researchers need this meaningful number: [the number of positives divided by the sum of positives + negatives] times 1000.

Yes, more testing will increase the number of positives. But, Donnie, it also increases the number of negatives. And, we are not doing better than other countries.

22. See, this is one of those things "just kidding" doesn't fix.

Either he was joking that he slowed down testing while 120,000 of his people died...

Or he was telling the truth that he slowed down testing while 120,000 of his people died.

I am really amazed that they don’t get why “just kidding” doesn’t fix that.
