Trump didn't lie, he held some things back to keep people safe

In the words of Elwood Blues,
"It wasn't lies. It was just... Bulls#."


This whole line of attack by the left undermines togetherness and confidence, and hurts all of our chances of getting this crazy ship back on course, and leaving a better world for our kids.

If Pres Trump's speeches, answers & announcements in the earliest days of this crisis hadn't been words of confidence, rationality and solidarity, but instead had given us the scary numbers about community spread, already in progress, and possible mortality rates... Well, do any of us believe there wouldn't have been mass panic? Battles in our streets for food and supplies, with a wave of injuries and deaths to go along with it?

Sure, sure... You might say "But he didn't have to LIE to us! A good president would've been honest - sugar coated none of it, given us the unvarnished truth." But if he had, I truly believe we would've begun this whole shared quarantine experience with headlines like "TP MELEE IN MEMPHIS ENDS WITH 2 STABBED AND 1 SHOT". Or how about "AT LEAST 5 CHILDREN TRAMPLED TO DEATH AFTER TRUMP'S TERRIFYING SPEECH TRIGGERS SUPPLY STAMPEDE". Can you imagine it? Because after the events of the past 2 weeks, I sure can.

They've jumped all over Trump for holding back some of the truth. But if his words had caused mass panic, don't think for one instant those same haters wouldn't be attacking him for scaring people and causing it... Words like "fearmongering" and "terroristic language". The clickbait crap-slingers and the Maddows and Lemons would say "A real president would have held something back. This proves how unintelligent he is, and how unqualified." It would be yelled from the rooftops, and screamed at the sky. Now, that might offend you; it might make you uncomfortable. But deep down, we all know it's true.


For the greater good, sometimes brutal honesty MUST be avoided. At such times, it's more important that the words of our leaders should inspire and encourage calm, rationality and preparedness; not ignite the fires of paranoia and panic. At such times, safety has to trump truth. Those manic voices who are still venomously attacking our president in an effort to convince us all that his words and decisions will lead only to death and destruction will make our situation worse, and ultimately cause more sickness and death.


Stay safe everyone.

Does anyone really think Bozo Biden or Bullsh*t Bernie would do any better.

That is not even a question because the answer is NO.

Got it.

Trump can do no wrong and even when things don't go right excuses will be made.

We all know that Trump can't do anything right in the eyes of the left.

If he had said early on that we're facing a possible disaster, or a pandemic, or a very serious situation, the dems would be condemning him for causing panic and fear mongering.

The memes are true. Trump declares "Oxygen is good". The lefties put plastic bags over their heads. The memes are absolutely true.

Oh yea. Absolutely. Held it all back for our safety. All the politicians were.

Wanna buy a bridge? What a maroon.

Bernie called Covid-19 "Ebola"...Biden sniffs hair, thinks he's running for the Senate and thinks his sister is his wife.

Extreme Trump supporters and anti-Trump people are undermining our togetherness and confidence....and completely dumbing down the conversation.

At least you got your socialist cheque. Have fun.

Here in socialist leftist Europe we do not get handed out ca$h from the government that easily.

Yes, having sold-out lines of toiletpaper is CAPITALISM, not socialism.
Yes, the government handing out money is socialism, at least more than capitalism.

Please send me some of what you’re smoking when you were watching his speeches.

You never know. I might be locked down sometime soon and it’d be nice to have something that completely altered reality to the point it made Donald Trumps speeches seem confident and rational.

Yeah, the self-proclaimed 'really stable genius' who knew this was going to be a pandemic all along.

There may be a run on TP, but there's clearly still a national surplus of orange Kool-Aid.

Now you get it!
It's a good thing Hillary just "held some things back to keep people safe", innit?



Stay safe everyone.


Just keep hiding stuff and we will be?

Old and busted: Lock her up!
New and trending: Lock it up (for the kids)!

Anyone who thinks there has been a president in the last century like this has a severe case of Reality Deficit Disorder.

I don't think this is anything you can smoke. This is hardcore, intravenous stuff.

Here's the best part: the GOP, under Trump's leadership, are leading the way to provide real support for working Americans now.

The DNC, under the leadership of the human Carcinogen called Nancy Pelosi, is trying to pass a bill for mandatory sick leave (won't help anyone who has been or will be laid off immediately) and they are *fighting* to exempt corporations of 500 employees or more. In other words: the corporations most Americans work for.

The DNC needs to die and I hope the GOP sweep the house and senate this year. There is no doubt in my mind the President's job is secure.

Probably not..so what.

Trump said some dangerous sh#t, like, it's no big deal, all the fuss surrounding it is a hoax, people are getting sick, and going to work, tad amount to saying its ok to do that..very irresponsible.
Otherwise, I doubt anyone else would of took the big steps needed.

Trump may have such a reason for saying what he did. The reasoning was invalid. He said the wrong thing.

The memes are silly pictures.
