    And you agree that Trump cannot be blamed for the debt SPECIFICALLY incurred by the Chinese virus?

    That was THEM being offered something, and they didn't accept.

    So why didn't Trump get prosecuted for this?

    they did accept, just it failed to come through for them, we saw the emails

    just like if a bank robber tries to rob a bank and leaves empty-handed

    no one said Trump was good at it, he also failed with Ukraine

    cause Trump is a sitting President and Mueller, a republican, went by the DOJ memo - figured you would already have known that

    your argument is like saying why wasn't Epstein found guilty, as if that means he is innocent - sadly bad people sometimes get away with their crimes and other times not, especially if rich

    The current daily US deaths from covid-19 WITH social distancing are 10 times larger than the average weekly deaths from H1N1 in 2009 WITHOUT social distancing. Enough said.

    The flu has been known to kill healthy 20 year olds. Experts kept warning that covid was much worse than the flu. Trump kept claiming covid was just as bad as the flu. Well, now we have the results.

    Besides his nonsense regarding the flu, among the many falsehoods that Trump is on record as having said concerning coronavirus: that it was “under control!”, that “everybody is getting better!”, that “Anybody that needs a test gets a test. We -they’re there! They have the tests, And the tests are beautiful!!”, that “we’re very close to a vaccine!” etc., etc. etc.

    Sensible people recognize that much of what he says is not true.

    There are also some with an affliction that prevents them from honestly admitting that.

    The coronavirus had now infected more than 500,000 people in the U.S. as of Friday night, constituting almost one-third of all cases across the globe.
    At least 20,071 people have died from the virus in the U.S., the highest number of any nation on earth.

    I said ON AVERAGE. Swine killed on average 40 year olds. If it spread like coronavirus, it would've wiped out a huge section of the working population and many kids would've lost their parents.

    So was some of the left wing media. So why do you only mention Trump?

    Whether one is a frenetic Trump pom pom flailer or an objective critic, Trump's record is what it is, and that is what we all must learn from by a dispassionate review of what has gone down that resulted in the U.S. now having more cases and fatalities of COVID-19 than any other nation on earth. Denial teaches us nothing.

    Despite fake assurances, it was not "under control." It did not just "go away." Everybody didn't just "get better."

    I remember the left wing media condemning Trump when he said covid was basically the flu. They were pointing to experts who said differently.

    The flu season doesn't last a full year. Even if the Corona deaths keep going at the level it's going right no it would read 60,000 for a year.

    I thought Trump supporters were attacking the media of trying to cause panic and hurt the economy to keep Trump from being re-elected? So which is it? Was the media downplaying the virus or was the media sensationalizing the virus?

    Trump-45 virus deaths are INCREASING daily, as you well know, yesterday's US daily death total set a new record at 2,035. If that rate continues without any more increases, a big IF since everyone says we have not peaked yet, Tramp will equal that total in less than a month, and easily pass your 80,000 flu mark shortly afterwards!

    Thank you for admitting it is actually the Right who suffer from TDS, since those are the claims of the Right-wing "outlets."
