    Well it's not as if any HONEST person can blame Trump for absolutely ALL of the debt after this crisis. The SCUM Chinese government on the other hand CAN be blamed.

    Well it would never get to a president without the actions of Congress, but yes, they sign the bill in the end.

    Just like Trump was riding Obama's pandemic non-readiness wave?

    Well done for demonstrating that he didn't call the virus ITSELF a hoax, just the Democrats' response to Trump's response. :roflol:

    Yes he did.

    "This is their new hoax".

    What is "this" that he is referring to according to you?

    I just told you. How did you miss it? "The Democrats' response to Trump's response."

    Nowhere, but anyone with two brain cells to rub together can figure it out. Where exactly does he say "the CORONAVIRUS is a hoax?"

    He called it a Democratic HOAX. Do you deny that?

    In the above clip, he said "THIS is their new hoax." You're going to have to define "THIS." Again, anyone with two brain cells to rub together can figure it out.

    Bailing out the failed Trump economy..... but the bush wars also accumulated debt under Obama and continue to under Trump

    I understand that to the right, now that Trump has spent more in 4 years then Obama did in 4 years, that the debt no longer matters

    I was asking specifically about "bailing out the failed Bush wars." What do they have to do with Trump?

    He appears to, and commands the mindless adulation of a smitten ilk in that regard.

    Most Americans do not share the blind faith of his worshippers. Our sentiments concerning his performance in the current crisis are quite different:

    To whatever extent he was bamboozled by China, and regardless of his intelligence services warning him, Trump expresses effusive praise for that authoritarian regime.

    Screen Shot 2020-04-10 at 9.32.09 AM.png
    Trump... praised Chinese premier Xi Jinping for the country’s handling of the novel coronavirus outbreak...

    “Just had a long and very good conversation by phone with President Xi of China. He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Great discipline is taking place in China, as President Xi strongly leads what will be a very successful operation. We are working closely with China to help!”

    While Xi did not thank the president during the call, the Chinese leader aimed to reassure Trump that the outbreak was under control.

    “We are fully confident and capable of defeating the epidemic,” Xi said.
