you seem to at least have a bit of common sense here. If Trump had come out right away and told the American people what he was told, would that have saved lives, or cost them? Remember, initially millions were going to die. But Trump initiated the China Travel ban within 48 hours of hearing the news.

Remember Pelosi begging everyone to come to China Town to party? that was a while after Trump did what he did.

Now if you want to argue that he lied, I can't defend him, he did. But was his lie in the best interests of the people, or was it malicious and cruel?

I'd honestly like to hear what you think here. The obvious idiots, not so much.

trumps covid19 clusterfk is probably the least of his worries come Nov. The GOP is in chaos.

www.rawstory.com...

Still peddling gossip? Of course, why not? The GOP is fine this Nov, the only people panicking are those pushing emotional hit pieces for the uniformed.
Plus, Trumps handling of the Chinese plague has resulted in saving millions of lives as a Novel virus can result in several billions of deaths without adequate prevention measures.
The Dems are in full panic as they’re unable to stop the riots destroying their images lol.

The amusing part about all this is that Trump requested this interview, for all to see.

The only people screeching? You, the leftist and those that hold water.

IT HAS ZERO BEARING ON PUBLIC INTEREST.

Now, why do you think that is? Because as far as Americans are concerned, they are going back to their lives and doing what they need to do, any issues with that are taken up with their governors as Americans are a bit more educated in regards to who holds the cards to these issues.

Nobody is listening to liberal media and “Bombshells”, lmfao, only those that think it may hurt Trumps image and try to push small beans BS links like Rawstory and CNN don’t yield that kind of return they think and hope.

Less then 60 days till elections folks, the economy is ticking back up and Chinese plague dwindling in all aspects in cases from infections to deaths, Trump and America has all but beaten this virus.

It’s best to ignore the low info feed and let the left digest all Anti Trump material in their echo chamber, it effects none of us and normal Americans could care less of their screeching, lets keep focusing on Making America Great Again.

Should be called "A distraction of a publicity stunt in defense of Trump, Israel, and Abu Dhabi". Little else. Trumps promise of and Palestine-Israel peace deal?... this isn't that, in the slightest. But hey, you are using it just like Trump! Trying to distract from the thread just like Trump is trying to distract from all of his other ridiculousness.

NorEaster, ty for speaking up. It does not matter what this tyrant says or does because these people are incapable of seeing reason. It is seriously scary how their devotion can't be broken and even scarier knowing what extent this could all go because they have been put under this spell. We all know that if this was Obama all these people would be saying what we are about Trump which makes this even more frustrating. They have turned the word "Democrat" into an insult, and by doing this it automatically dismisses any argument not affiliated with the Republican agenda. I think history has shown us exactly what happens when one group of people start to hate and dismiss anyone and anything that is not in agreement with what their leaders vision.

When rationality is thrown out the window in favor of loyalty to a person or ideal eventually words won't do enough damage to satisfy those who have fallen into the side of tyranny and physical action will eventually become their tool to silence anyone who has a different opinion. The anger and venom these people harbor is frightening. They have pre-fabricated arguments for any point you make not to say that you are wrong or that they disagree but to point the finger back at you and always say "how about the people on YOUR team and what they do" which only says to me "we know how terrible the things we are defending are so our only course is to try and bring you and the people in your party down the our level so we don't feel as guilty".

This country runs on more than one party working together and this has been made almost impossible now since you are invalid if you don't support Trump. This can only lead to a clash which will divide us further and break down democracy even more than it has been already. Good, honest, caring people know how terrible Trump is and I don't care what party they are a part of but until those people start speaking up and showing these radicals that violence, racism and bigotry are not going to be accepted as the new norm these Trump supporters will fall deeper and deeper into the insanity they are powerless to escape from and soon they will allow this man to do anything he wants and they will have no choice but to agree and adopt those views as their own because admitting they were wrong attacks the thing this president holds higher than anything else in the world, EGO.

I used to be angry but now I am fearful and sad at what has been done to these poor people and hopefully they can see reason again before we lose everything because 200k deaths due to ignorance, regardless if the pandemic is his fault or not, was not enough for them. His actions could have made that number much lower than it is today and that is what is trying to be shown to you and not some "leftist hit job" trying to ensnare you. HUMAN LIVES...that is not important enough for some while that MAGA hat is on though. Shame on you.

He was hiding that the virus was a real threat and was downplaying it when he knew it was a threat.

He made a whole thing about how the coravirus is not a big deal... when he obviously knew it was.

Hillary? What are you talking about... The defenses against trump are becoming more bizzare each day..

Best intention? I don't know. It obviously wasn't cruel intent but he most likely wanted to prevent an economic tragedy.

Yet he didn't prevent economic hardship and informing the American people could have possibly increased our ability to slow the virus early on.

His greatest crime is that he so blatantly mislead the public. Out of the belief that the government and POTUS know best and will always lie if they think its better for the country.

You think Trump will disclose Aliens now? Nope.. He is now proven that he will lie on matters that are important to the public interest. Typical politician.

It doesn't matter though. The lemmings will vote either Trump or Biden. They will play by the rules and continue the circus.

Why do we even discuss? Trump could drone strike a school bus and biden could fall asleep mid-debate and the same people would vote for them.

Trump is still the better choice in Nov.



There is no good choice in nov.

And voting for the lesser evil makes us a fool.


Was there a "good choice" in November 2016?


Nope. but like the rest of the fools I voted for a lesser evil.

never again.

He still to this day pushing his followers to Not ware mask when hes at conventions .

"Major felony"?
Really?
Because you disagree with him?



no because he lied in a time that the truth could save live.

REALLY? Then why did DEMOCRATS call him racist for stopping flights from china. why did they ENCOURAGE people to "go to chinatown and hug someone"? why didnt they start a group/committe to prepare to deal with the corvid "threat"... wow do you really think people cant do a google search for facts? smh

..cause the truth wouls hurt is feeling and made it look bad

wow.. you really think he cares what the democrats think ? isnt that what you accuse him of doing that he doesnt care what others think.. now you say he does? you cant make up your mind can you?

people died because he lied...period

i know its redundent and you wont answer but ill ask again "what SPECIFIC PROOF" that anything he did WAS DIRECTLY responcible for anyones death from covid? i really dont expect a FACTUAL REPLY but more seeing if your answer is amusing in an ignorant sort of way

...and he did it because all you trump supporter just let him do it and even repeate is deadly bull#


really? it was "trump supporters" that told people at begining of covid "pandemic" to "go to chinatown and hug someone"? that demanded he not ban flights from china. i dont understand your continued rantings but i admire your dedication to it.

its like if you see someone drowning and you dont jump in the water to save them cause you dont want to mess your hairs...


by far one of your most amusing emotional rants to date... well done

what is amazing your current tactics are so old.. old as in published in a book from 1948 by george orwell called "1984"

specifically the tactics of the "ministry of truth".. they may actually have worked if we didnt have an internet that (at least for now) cant be "put down a memory hole" and re written to make the "past" fit your current "present narrative".

Reading this thread is an amazing experience.

I would've doubted that anyone could dream up a plausible defense of Trump's relentless and aggressive dismissal of the threat of this pandemic over the last 8 months and his demand that people reject the simple and proven infection spread mitigation instruction by his own health experts, now that we all know that he knew how deadly this virus is and that he believed that it was deadly and how easy it was to catch the virus - but here it is on full display in this thread.

This isn't just blind partisanship, this is nearly impossible to believe.

I wonder how many of Trump's own "fans" are already dead because he convinced them that they were chumps if they wore masks in public. Yeah, Trump didn't cause the pandemic, but he's still trying to convince his own followers to go ahead and open themselves up to get infected. And, after nearly 200,000 deaths and many thousands of people who survived with permanent heart, lung, and/or neurological damage, he and his administration are still putting as much distance between themselves and any plan to figure this mess out. They clearly don't care; not about the pandemic or about their own base.

And, now that we all know the truth about what he knew and when he knew it, most of his followers are working overtime to bend and twist their own minds to come up with an excuse that doesn't expose Trump as sounding completely evil.

I don't post much here anymore, but I just couldn't hold off on this one. You guys are the ones that are being lied to by Trump. The rest of us know better than to even listen to anything he says. He's not a danger to us. He's a danger to you and anyone else who believes that he's NOT a complete psychopath. You're the ones in his gun sights.


But what about Joe Biden? Huh?

Spot on.

What kind of peace deal only includes one of the sides?

At best, this will be a curious footnote alongside the disarmament of North Korea. How's that coming along?

I love it when people talk about 1984 on ATS.

The memory hole does not destroy all memory or evidence of something. It is a symbolic eradication, not an actual eradication. Some people remember and keep quiet. Some people remember but it suits their purposes to pretend otherwise. Some people remember and don't care. Some people remember and don't know they remember. Some people remember and convince themselves they have forgotten. Some people genuinely forget.

If you want a parallel to "We have always been at war with Eurasia", or "two plus two equals five", there's plenty of it here.

the last part of your post we are in complete agreement .
but thats an added point.

your missing the significance and meaning of me pointing out a memory hole and its use in 1984

yes people have memories of the truth .
but as the book pointed out (quite clearly and is scary) that the memory hole destroyed PHYSICAL PROOF of whatever thing your remembering.
without that hard proof (which is destroyed) you can re write the history to reflect whatever you want it to (as they did).
anyones memory comes into question as if its accurate due to no hard proof to refer to for accuracy.
hell even winston (as anyone could) doubted what they remembered. they questioned if it was accurate and as time went on became even more questionable if not forgotten outright.
human memory can be reasonably questionable at the best of times and why we in court give more weight to hard facts/ evidence vs human memory .

the tactic of telling the same lie over and over until it becomes the truth works because you dont have the hard proof to counter it.

that is what the democrats are trying and only keep failing is because we dont have a "ministry of truth" with a "memory hole" destroying the past and re writing it .

but lets be honest and IMO quite afraid because daily we are seeing this "memory hole" concept being attempted .

the destruction of monuments, removal of "offensive" books , and wanting the language (ex there is more than male/female gender) to be forced to change.

that the very history in schools is being altered, changed, and twisted to fit some agenda . That is altering peoples memories right there.

with the press deleting old stories, changing narratives , and acting like they didnt report XX before.
just look at trump over covid and biden over his racism comments.

i sum this up by saying this

unless one pays attention and deals with threats when small it may be too late to deal with them later.

the frog in the pot story

Hmmm... yet no charges filed? Is their not the political will to levy a charge against him? I don’t think that’s the issue...

So I’ll go ahead and make an assertion as well. You’re being hyperbolic and just spewing your own opinion, which is based on a delusion.
