WH Numbers Show COVID Spikes Across Nation As Trump Talks Up A Plummet | Talking Points Memo

Obviously the White House is a hotbed of ‘Deep State’ plotting.

Once again, Trump lives in a fantasy world of wishful thinking and Fox “News” propaganda. It is utterly shameful that a GOP majority in the U.S. Senate did not remove this man from office when they had the chance. Let’s repair that error next November, shall we? #dumptrump

The obvious response will be to stop releasing the numbers.

If Trump is really talking plummet, we are more and more getting into mental health issues.

I’m thinking about Adolf’s Steiner Attack.

His supporters are trying out ways to say the numbers are inflated. Once they get settled on a strategy I suspect we will be heavily subjected to a disinformation campaign.

The chinese virus is a hoax. Why is President Skanky Turdface compelling the White House staff to wear masks, take forced blood tests and rectal temperatures? This is scary, it is scaring everyone on Main street, in Florida and in the Heartland.

This would be my preferred avenue of justice. Keep knocking down those propping him up.

It’s only declining in areas like New York, where the ravages were early. This freak we have for a president says whatever he feels like saying. Doesn’t matter to him if anything is remotely true, as long as it fits the advertising points of the day. Nothing he says is anything other than one long dishonest commercial for the promotion of Donald Trump.

If NASA confirms a meteor strike on May 2021, Trump can misinform and run a disinformation op on that all he wants…

But…

COVID is not a meteor strike, but it’s as wedded to scientists and raw data as meteor strikes are.
