Despite CDC Warning, Trump Doesn’t Sound Too Concerned About Coronavirus | Talking Points Memo

President Donald Trump has treated the global coronavirus outbreak like most obstacles in his way — as a messaging opportunity.


This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://talkingpointsmemo.com/?p=1293176

Tuesday didn’t pass without a shot at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who alongside other Democrats has criticized the White House’s ask for a $2.5 billion coronavirus response package — which would include transferring $535 million currently marked for fighting the Ebola virus…

… and then transferring the balance to building The Wall.

Dems need to hit Trump hard on this, starting immediately, so he is forced to own it when the virus starts to spread in the U.S.

If only.

Not too concerned about it.

I know for a FACT that if this were closer to the election, they would be using it as an excuse to suspend elections from an emergency standpoint and claiming polling places would be a vector for transmittal.

Even global pandemics can be boiled down, in his head, to what is good for Chump at this moment.

People with pre-existing conditions are said to be particularly vulnerable.

Does the genetic ineptitude that gallops through the Trump family qualify?

Fingers crossed…

Has he marked on their graph or map of what they think will happen with a sharpie of what he thinks will happen?

It’s not contained, he ought to be concerned, and his stupidity is going to kill people.
The next person in the US who catches this virus ought to be the Unconcerned Twitter-philiac

Too bad karma doesn’t work that fast.

I’m not sure you should be saying that in polite company. If the moderators ever figure out what “sadfj” means, you’ll be banned for life. Probably reported to the FBI as well.

I would never wish something like that on anyone.

At least my 2016 self never would have. 2020 is a whole different me I’m sorry to say. So, yes, let them suffer all the pains of hell.
