Only reason I may be "triggerd" is the fact you are ignoring most of my points to fit your beliefs.
Look at China. They had a full lockdown, and they recovered quickly, which meant their economy did not suffer like what we are seeing in the UK and America.
So, while China was having a full lockdown, Trump was mocking the virus with his Tweets.
It was Jan 30th when China expanded the lockdown beyond Wuhan to the entire province of Hubei. And this is the date WHO declared a global health emergency.
And now you are pushing 100 thousand deaths. The worst hit country in the world. Of course if the lockdown was introduced ealier, more lives would have been saved.
Would not be able to handle all the minions and people comparing me to Jesus, Moses and Noah!
Yes, I have something to say about them. They are idiots who now have blood on their hands. Any person lying and playing down the virus who are in the public eye have blood on their hands.
You are not listening, and I do not think you ever will, so pretty pointless really, so this is my last post on this. I have given you more than enough evidence, but you just do not listen.
So you would have welded people inside their homes? That's how China did the "full lockdown." We don't know how many died from hunger or lack of medical care. If that's your solution, no thanks... I'll take my chances with the super-cold
North Korea had almost no cases, probably because they (according to reports) had an even stricter lockdown. If anyone was deemed to be contaminated, their entire family was executed... just to be safe. Just because something works, it does not always follow it is the best course of action.
You might also want to remember that, as far as the rest of the world knew at the time, there was little to no risk of the Wuhan virus spreading outside of China. China did not tell us it was communicable until later... they actually told the WHO (who dutifully played the part of parrot) that there was no indication of human to human transmission.
Gee, thanks China!
And the following day, Trump implemented a travel ban from China, and was lambasted for it. Recall that this virus was spreading in China since late 2019.
More like Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin.
And we would likely have realized the extent of the danger had China not withheld vital information.
You seem to think that a President can just do whatever he wants when he wants how he wants to who he wants. Nope. Even the President has limitations on his power, and I for one am damn glad he does. You're thinking Emperor, dictator, or King. That's what China has: an Emperor. He wields almost unlimited power inside China.
That includes the power to silence researchers in order to hide information that might be embarrassing.
Well, at least you're agreeing with me there. The difference is that Cuomo had the authority to lock down New York (or at least thinks he does now) while Trump had no such authority. Oh, yes, and while all this was going on, Andrew Cuomo was forcing, by power of law forcing, nursing homes to accept patients who were known to be infected and infectious. About half of the New York deaths (and remember New York was the hardest hit state and accounts for a substantial number of the US deaths) came from nursing homes having to follow Cuomo's mandate.
Oh, I'm listening... I can't seem to stop listening. It's like watching a train wreck simulation. I can't turn away.
You refuse to place any blame whatsoever on China for actually releasing the virus and then withholding information until it was already spreading across the globe.
You refuse to even accept the WHO's complicity with China in covering up the virus in the first place. You didn't even mention Cuomo and his direct murderous actions concerning nursing homes until I pointed it out.
You didn't even mention Cuomo and his direct murderous actions concerning nursing homes until I pointed it out.
You think Donald Trump has unlimited powers as President.
You absolutely refuse to accept that everything you are saying is based on hindsight, which was not reality at the time due to China's actions.
I place blame where blame lies, not where it is convenient for me to place to place it. Could any of our Western leaders done better? Hell yes! But did they have the information needed to know what to do at the time? In most cases, no, and in a few cases, yes.
I will defend Trump where he is being falsely accused of something beyond his control... I will defend anyone who is attacked thusly.
I authored a thread praising Cuomo early in this situation, because I felt he was taking the needed approach and he was being demonized elsewhere... of course, that was before the extent of his actions became common knowledge. Now I am condemning him for those actions.
If you think you get a pass over demonizing anyone, you're sorely mistaken.
Even though I do not agree with welding people into their homes, it worked!
There is a difference between killing people with the virus and their families too, and welding people into their homes, but making sure they have what they need.
You keep on saying this, but completly ignoring my points. Why was Trump mocking the virus, and not taking the virus seriously when it hit America?
What was the point in the travel ban when weeks after that ban, he was mocking the virus and not taking it seriously?
Trump is a complete moron, but he is not a Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin.
What the he'll are you talking about? We are talking about how he obviously did not take the virus seriously, and ignored advice given to him about it. This is not about the power he has, it's about how he, himself messed up on this one.
But you and Lord Trump have one thing in common. You both refuse to admit you are wrong.
Where have I refused to blame China? This is about how your government handled the virus in America, not how China handled the virus in America.
See, you are shifting again. You keep on doing that. I said earlier in this thread that in due cause, if the WHO made huge mistakes, then there will be an investigation. Not once did I say WHO are innocent in all this.
Again, what did I say that? Why are you lying?
I have a feeling you will defend Trump no matter what. Even if the evidence is staring you in the face that he made huge mistakes. You try and find excuses for his mistakes.
You said he sent out those ridiculous tweets and was mocking the virus and not taking the virus seriously, to not concern the "American people"
Well done! Yet you cannot do the trump for trump, who obviously made huge mistakes regarding the virus.
I have backed up everything I said with the tweets he made, and the timeline. That Prove a he made mistakes and ignored important advice.
