Yes. With all due respect to Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, both of whom seem very smart and capable, there are plenty of other smart and capable virologists who can go on CNN and explain what will happen to people if they don't social distance.

Yes and in Trumpís pocket or vise versa. They have a safe with dirt on him. And thatís not a conspiracy. Itís a fact. They bought damaging stories about him and killed them over the last few decades.

Unfortunately, I believe (from first-hand experience) that the average trump voter doesn't actually want trump to do anything for them; they love him because he's going to use his position to inflict pain on people they don't like... racial minorities, LGBTQ, non-christians, feminists/women who don't their place, coastal elites, liberals, etc. They couldn't give a fuck whether or not he lowers their taxes or brings them less expensive healthcare. They just get off on seeing him put "Mexicans" in concentration camps and tell black people they're "Low IQ."

There's never going to be a point where you lay his corruption bare for them to see because they don't give a shit. There's really nothing that he can do crack his support other than to stop hurting people they don't like.

This. What is going to be addressed in a quick news interview to the general public, is pretty basic. Nothing really new has come out in months. Sure some fine tuning (like wearing masks) but nothing radicle. And certainly nothing new or extreme about need for testing, social distancing, etc.

Dr Sanjay Gupta has been doing "COVID-19 facts and fiction" every night it seems. And as CNN's chief medical dude, I'm sure he knows a slew of experts they could have on if they felt the need to.

So Trump said Saudi Arabia and Russia are still producing oil. Big fucking deal. Oil does you no good if no one has a job.

What does it mean when someone talks and they repeat themselves(sometimes more than once). Is that dementia? Is that The Lying King?

For the American public, is there anyone complaining that gas is too cheap? It's so weird to me that he spends so much time on this.

Why should Trump or Pence care about how many people have passed away during the health crisis. It was Obama's fault !!!!

Nah. Don't have to make it harder than it has to be. Just say "Lie" to everything, then make a retraction later if there's actually something true. I imagine it won't come up that often.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

They should run trump's speeches on a five minute delay so they can do fact-check pop-ups. And keep a running counter showing all of his lies ticking off to the side.

"I've been on this since day one."

"FACT: He claimed it was a hoax during a campaign rally on Feb. 28."

Yesterday on the MSNBCs Brian Williams Show a guy said-The Virus is the Boss. Trump isn't The Boss.

Don't think The Lying King should be setting timetable's in which people could return to work.

I think states like mine will probably go back too soon and community transmission will probably start again, so my wife and I are planning to continue social distancing from the public for at least 2 weeks after any shelter at home is lifted to see if the hospitals start filling up again. It will take at least 2 weeks for cases to start percolating to the hospitals once everyone goes back into the pool.

I'm not trying to go back to an NYC commute, especially after how great working from home has worked out for me. I might just tell them to let me go if they start trying to rush me back to the office.

That's a good plan.

Perhaps your governor will surprise you. Here in AZ, we have a Trump toadie as governor, but to his credit he took action relatively early (especially given his connection to Trump). And locally, even a fair number of the MAGA types are actually wearing masks and complying with social distancing and self-isolation...in spite of their embracing wacky conspiracies about how the virus was created by 5G transmissions, or a Chinese bioweapon, or a George Soros plan gone awry.

I have seen that work-from-home amplifies a person's work ethic... if you're a nose-to-the-grindstone, sleeves rolled up, type of worker, then you'll be even more so working from home. A slacker becomes a super-slug when working from home.
