    You cannot bully a virus. Making proclamations with this being an unknown is foolish. Keep a close eye on Louisiana, New York, California, Florida, and Washington. Things are going to get a lot worse.

    What light does Trump see at the end of the tunnel? Hopefully it is a warning light.

    The Giant Hole in Trump’s absurd prediction is what it refers to. You asked the question, and I answered it.

    I don’t understand. Trumps position is that it’s going to get alot worse. This week and next. They aren’t sugar coating it.

    Why did he come out and set Easter as the day, and have no rational reason? It makes no sense.

    Sauce seems to think this article is enlightening for some reason. I don't get it either.

    as a leader he is offering light at the end of the tunnel for a very scared, misguided and growingly restless citizen base.
    did you miss the part about that being a goal?? he is trying to keep us all pointed downfield instead of listening to the media deathclock that keeps telling us we are all gping to die and there is no hope.


    Holy F$CK i cant believe a leader would offer some sort of hope.
    we should all be in the house waiting to die

    False, misguided hope that has no rationale. The adults in the room, then have to walk back his comments.

    What are you referring to? If you’re talking about the doctors on the team, it’s their job. If the non MD in the room wants to talk about a drug that has shown some success, there’s nothing wrong with that.

    A very good article. Thanks for posting it.

    The problem is that the Administration hasn’t properly defined the problem and therefore is having from the very start not knowing how to solve it. So many missteps and misstatements.

    In a crisis the best ASSET is credible leadership. One man wants to be in charge to show he knows best so he can take the credit and pass off the blame. We aren’t that stupid.

    Trump is no leader. Leaders don't waffle around and openly change their mind every two days when faced with a crisis. Leaders offer clarity and consistency and when asked what they have to say to the nation offer something more inspiring than "You're a terrible reporter."

    Trump is no Winston Churchill, he's a spray-tanned internet troll Neville Chamberlain. He's not worried about the American people he's worried about his crumbling overleveraged real estate "empire." Mar-a-Lago can only be closed so many weeks before the President of the United States has to go back to his Russian oligarch financiers for a bridge loan. He would let millions of Americans die rather than reveal how broke and incompetent he is as a "business man."

    Someone let him in front of camera without Dr. Fauci so he went all deranged. Apparently after meeting with Dr. Fauci in the evening, he's walking back his idiotic earlier statements because they are dangerous.

    Strange.
    I saw an interview with Dr Fauci tonight who was falling all over himself praising Trump and acknowledging the difficult balancing act Trump has in this.

    What does Fauci want from Trump ?

    Advice on the molecular structure of Covid 19 ?

    He's been there since 1984. I'm sure if he had a strong disagreement he'd have the balls to say so.

    I will be surprised if Fauci is still there by the end of April.

    Can you link where Trump is *walking things back* ?

    NC Pitt said he's seen nothing about Trump walking anything back but you wouldn't know that since you have him on ignore.

    Can you link where Trump walked anything back ?

    His stated comments is he wants to get the facts out. Regardless of what trump says- haven't you seen him correct Trump?

    You're making my point then.

    Has Trump stopped him from getting the facts out ? Seems he gets plenty of facts out during the pressers,and numerous print and TV interviews I've seen him do

    He's getting what he wants from Trump without having to fall all over himself in tonight's interview praising Trump

    This has Trump's quotes. Funny that NC still hasn't figured out how google works yet.

    That link doesn't show him walking anything back.
    It states exactly what he stated this afternoon.
    He'd like to have things up and running by Easter.
    He never stated earlier today it was a definite.

    As I show below, you stated that he was walking things back "in the evening". Then you show me his quotes from the briefing in the afternoon, which I watched live. As I said, there has been no "walking things back" in the evening.

    Why don't you get the stones to take him off ignore so you can confront him yourself?
    Or has he really destroyed you so much in the past your ego can't take it ?

    Actually,we get the fact that yesterday I criticized him at least 4 or 5 times but when you've got nothing this is your go-to TDS laden response to facts you can't dispute.

    How's AOC doing ?

    I just read the articles from the town hall earlier today. I also read most of the transcript. I watched the later briefing live. There was no daylight between what he said earlier and later in the day. joey is getting his information from biased sources.
