    “President Donald Trump told reporters on Monday that impeachment did not affect his ability to respond to the coronavirus, but it had distracted Democrats.

    As Breitbart News noted Mar. 13, the timeline of events shows that President Trump took actions against the coronavirus throughout his impeachment trial — but Democrats in Congress did nothing until impeachment ended.”

    The democrats were preoccupied by impeachment alone during the critical times of January and early February. While Nutsy Nancy was passing out impeachment pens, Trump was forming the Coronavirus commission. Trump fought hard to deal with the virus while democrats were fighting him.

    Citing Breitbart as a source for anything serious. Thanks. I needed a good laugh with my coffee.

    Trump claims he took Corovid serious all the way back in January.

    Why then did he not do all the things we now know should have been done?

    Secure enough PPE

    Ventilators

    Reassemble the pandemic task force he disbanded

    Develop a real plan to fight this...

    Maybe he was playing some of that 4-D chess the right is always giving him credit for.

    Trump is all about, and only exists, as APPEARANCE. This lie, too, is only an appearance. Not what is, but how it seems. That is the farthest thing from leadership.

    Unless you've been living under a rock or lack any sense of perception, you would know Trump puts Trump first, always did and always will.

    Nothing he said was downplaying anything. It'd get worse before it gets better which is what he said. If everything is done perfectly we'd have about 100,000 deaths which is very low considering China had 21 million deaths as evident by the canceled cell phone accounts and considering that Seoul's population dropped from 38 million to 9.7 million.

    Direct from Trump's invented encyclopedia. Actually he claimed no one knows South Korea better than him and he claimed the population of Seoul is NOW 38 million. It was never even close to that, not even the metropolitan area's population but you apparently believe every single lie that comes out of that Presidential orifice.

    Impeachment was one of a plethora of Constitutional responsibilities, and belated, selective, hyper-partisan finger-pointing will not alter the nation's current plight.

    Trump repeatedly tried to convince the American people he had a handle on a situation that, by his own team’s metrics and projections, has now spiraled wildly out of control.

    Pretending that Fake Don's happy talk did not ignore the ominous warnings is a desperate ploy that is contradicted by the documented evidence:

    "We expect we will see community spread in this country.
    It's not so much a question of if this will happen anymore,
    but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen
    and how many people in this country will have severe illness."

    It's “under control!” a “problem that’s going to go away!”
    “We have very few people with it"
    and “the people are getting better,

    they’re all getting better!”
    February 25, 2020

    Why would you trust a source that doesn't know Seoul better than Trump?

    Why would you trust a pathological liar who lies with nearly every single sentence that comes out of his hole? Why would you believe he actually knows anything about South Korea, just because he said so?

    Seoul, South Korea Population

    Population in Urban Area, now

    How many more sources do you need? Oh just 1 - Donald Trump.

    Do you seriously believe that because Breitbart reported it means he didn’t really say it?

    Trump put up a travel ban from China early and his critics attacked him for it. Trump started the Wuhan virus commission that started working right away on this and all the opposition could do was criticize who the President assigned to lead it and coordinate with various agencies of government and criticized the demographic make up of the commission. All this happened during the democrats impeachment orgy.

    TDS even in the face of a pandemic is a trait of the far progressive left.

    TDS = Trump Defender Syndrome? So you characterize yourself as "far progressive left" then? I characterize myself as Bob and any fool with any reasonable intelligence and any sense of reality who has ever heard Trump open his face hole knows the pathological-narcissist-in-chief puts himself first, last and in between at all times, but especially first.

    I’m proud to defend our great American President from his domestic detractors reading their Chinese handlers propaganda talking points.

    Trump took actions regarding the Chinese spread pandemic while the democrats were engaged in impeachment tunnel vision and he was a far bigger enemy to them than this disease was.

    Actually, as the record shows, he lied a lot about the imminent pandemic that epidemiologists were warning him was about to ravage the U.S., repeatedly pulling fake rosy scenarios out of his flabby butt, rather than demonstrating responsible leadership like South Korea whose vastly superior results is an index of Trump's tragic failure.
    • January 22: "We have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China."
    • January 24: "It will all work out well."
    • February 2: "We pretty much shut it down coming in from China."
    • February 19: "I think it's going to work out fine. I think when we get into April, in the warmer weather, that has a very negative effect on that and that type of a virus. So let's see what happens, but I think it's going to work out fine."
    • February 24: "The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA…Stock Market starting to look very good to me!"
    • February 26: "Because of all we've done, the risk to the American people remains very low…When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done."
    • February 28: "It's going to disappear. One day, it's like a miracle, it will disappear."
    • March 7: "It came out of China, and we heard about it. And made a good move: We closed it down; we stopped it. Otherwise — the head of CDC said last night that you would have thousands of more problems if we didn't shut it down very early. That was a very early shutdown, which is something we got right."
    • March 9: "So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!"
    • March 10: "It hit the world. And we're prepared, and we're doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away."
    • March 12: "It's going to go away. … The United States, because of what I did and what the administration did with China, we have 32 deaths at this point … when you look at the kind of numbers that you're seeing coming out of other countries, it's pretty amazing when you think of it."
    • March 23: "America will again and soon be open for business…Parts of our country are very lightly affected."
    • March 26: "They have to go back to work; our country has to go back. Our country is based on that, and I think it's going to happen pretty quickly."
    • March 29: "So you're talking about 2.2. million deaths — 2.2 million people from this. And so, if we can hold that down, as we're saying, to 100,000 — that's a horrible number — maybe even less, but to 100,000; so we have between 100- and 200,000 — we all, together, have done a very good job. But 2.2, up to 2.2 million deaths and maybe even beyond that. I'm feeling very good about what we did last week."
    • March 30: "New York is really in trouble, but I think it's going to end up being fine. We're loading it up, we're stocking it up...And then by a little short of June, maybe June 1, we think the — you know, it's a terrible thing to say, but — we think the deaths will be at a very low number. It'll be brought down to a very low number from right now, from where it's getting to reach its peak."

    (The above chart has not yet been altered by a Trump Sharpie.)
    It was back on February 25 that Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, sounded the dire warning that Fake Don ignored:​
    "We expect we will see community spread in this country.
    It's not so much a question of if this will happen anymore,
    but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen
    and how many people in this country will have severe illness."
