Donald Trump has always been at war against facts and science. And even after catching the coronavirus, he hasn’t learned anything from it except that he’ll receive special treatment.
At one of his rallies, Trump was boasting about how many doctors he had while also telling his flock of fucknuts, don’t let the virus scare you. It’s amazing he’s obtuse to the point that he’s boasting about his level of treatment while putting others in danger who won’t receive that same treatment.
You should not take Donald Trump’s advice regarding the coronavirus any more than you should go to him for marriage advice…unless you want a divorce.
In a call with campaign staff on Monday, Donald Trump said, “People are tired of Covid.” That’s true. We are tired of Covid. We’re tired of a president (sic) ignoring it, putting more Americans in danger, and making it harder to reopen this nation and resuming our normal everyday lives.
Donald Trump also said, “I have the biggest rallies I’ve ever had. And we have Covid. People are saying: ‘Whatever. Just leave us alone.’ They’re tired of it.” I don’t know if we should gauge the population by people too stupid to follow the habits of a guy who caught the coronavirus, and doesn’t change his habits.
Then, Donald Trump called Dr. Anthony Fauci and other scientists, “Idiots.”
“People are tired of hearing Fauci and these idiots, all these idiots who got it wrong,” said the guy who ignored his own government’s guidelines and caught the virus.
At a rally in Nevada yesterday, Trump warned his attendees that if elected, “Joe Biden will ‘listen’ to the scientists.” Oh no! An intelligent president. What’ll that be like?
“If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression,” said the president (sic) presiding over an economy in a massive depression and a nation where over 220,000 people have died from the coronavirus. Fact: None of those 220,000 was airlifted to Walter Reed Medical Center to receive experimental treatment from a team of 14 doctors.
Let’s take stock: Donald Trump ignored CDC and his own coronavirus taskforce’s guidelines. Donald Trump ignored guidelines for wearing face masks. Donald Trump ignored social distancing. Donald Trump continued to hold super-spreader events. Donald Trump’s friend, Herman Cain, died after attending one of these super-spreader events. Donald Trump held a super-spreader event at the White House where over a dozen people caught the coronavirus. At that same White House super-spreader event, Donald Trump caught the coronavirus. As soon as he felt better, Donald Trump resumed holding super-spreading events.
So yeah, it’s the scientists who are the idiots.
Donald Trump can attack Dr. Fauci all he wants, but last I looked, Dr. Fauci still hasn’t caught the coronavirus.
