2. It's far worst than it would have been if we had only had a better leader. One who didn't lie ...

... about the need for mask and social distancing.

4. The manhas NO understanding how pandemics work.

Over 1,000 people dying are dying a day and that adds up quickly. The rate of infection is the highest in the world. The number of deaths and cases are the highest for any given country. Trump has no idea that this is NOT under control. Rural communities are at a higher risk due to community hospitals will be overwhelmed with cases.

5. That interview is the worst of him I've seen yet.

He’s getting worse. He’s obviously not mentally competent to understand the questions. That is frightening.

But more frightening is that no one is stopping him.

I fear for my country.

11. You know, Earl, I'm a big LOTR fan, and this weekend my daughter and I watched all the movies.

As to the books, I've read each one maybe a dozen times.

I watched this whole interview with Trump and you know what it reminded me of?

The Axios guy probably felt like Aragorn did when he was trying to interview Gollum over 'many weary hours.'

Trump is our Gollum, and the presidency is 'his precious.'

14. Thanks. I had not seen it. I closed out my twitter account a while ago.

Pretty funny, but this is how Trump will be on the stand too, (if) when he goes to trial on some of the numerous charges the Mueller investigation devolved onto states Attorney Generals. Bunch of stuff still alive in NY, and Trump can call that 'fake news' as much as he wants, but that jail cell will be real.

Especially now that the Kushner news came out about why there was not a coordinated national response. That was truly despicable.

13. Clear evidence of the correctness of Mary Trump's diagnosis

Only a true sociopath would blithely say mass needless death is just “what it is.”
I’m sure the dead and their suffering families have a quite different and more negative 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, ignoring, silencing,
and threatening scientists strenuously warning of the danger, and refusal to protect its population is exactly what this murderously incompetent cabal is doing in response to this pandemic. As a result this plague has become 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 now 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 true justice.

30. That's the reason I recommended the movie to so many people, family, etc.

A lot of young people look derisively at the former USSR because of the economics of Communism, not the actual power structure that had party pols telling scientists how to do their jobs, denying there is a problem, etc. To me, the biggest impact of the movie was in seeing how their political structure ruined critical thinking, denial of reality, etc.

The best part was the miners, I think. They were a tribe of workers willing to do what was needed.

33. Yes! You're exactly right.

The brilliance of the miniseries was, in part, in how it depicted the abominable manner in which life and death decisions were being made with everything focused on preserving the image of the regime and those in power with the health and welfare of the people not being of any concern. The admonition by the party apparatchik in the first episode to lie to the people and keep them in the dark about the scale of the disaster and it’s threat to their lives and have them focus only on “their work“ reminded me of the rancid bleatings of the lieutenant governor of Texas the Rethuglican apparatchik Dan Patrick who was pushing to force businesses to open and herd people back to work that “senior citizens will be willing to die for the economy” 🤬 That’s what gives the miniseries such relevance to the current catastrophe we are experiencing as we see the EXACT same attitude being exhibited by the Trumpists who, I might add, would fit neatly into that corrupt decaying regime as they are comfortable with suppressing truth, muzzling scientists, and letting large numbers of people die in order to cling to their rapidly slipping stranglehold on power and control of we the people.

Yes I LOVED the miners! They had a tremendous spirit of selflessness and willingness to tackle the problem head on in order to save lives despite the incompetence and criminality of the regime which is the spirit we see today being exhibited by the front line health care workers dealing with the death and suffering caused by this regimes criminal mismanagement of this crisis. The leader of the miners was great wasn’t he? Basically told the apparatchiks to their face “don’t BS me, and your threats are meaningless: I’m going to protect my people and do what’s best for them” Exactly who you want in a leader which is in stark contrast to Mr “it is what it is” 🤬

And they never seem to grasp that a “Benevolent dictator” is an oxymoron: never has been such a thing, never will be. But I guess drinking all that bleach interferes with proper neuron functioning!

15. That puts it in perspective.

The GOP doesn't care about 1,000 Americans dying per day. This includes the Congress and the state lackeys as well.

The Democrats were fighting tooth and nail to reduce the 114 Americans dying per day before the ACA and the 94 Americans dying per day through guns.

Remind those non-voters who say there's no difference between the parties.

23. They say what they need to say to win

They are agenda driven and anything else is just tactics needed to fulfill the agenda.

Anyone notice that what they are doing is quite similar to the m.o. of a sociopath? Use and discard people when convenient.
