  1. Even by Trump's standards, going on TV and suggesting that people inject disinfectant or stand in front UV light strong enough to affect this virus is a stunning display of sheer stupidity. Almost as bad a supporting a guy who would do that. Can't overstate how much faith I've lost in people after this. How pathetic it must be to be a Trump supporter. smfh.
  2. Below is a link to Trump calling Covid 19 a "brilliant enemy" and claiming that it's too smart for antibiotics. How did people become so stupid as to vote for a man who doesn't even know that antibiotics are used against bacteria, not viruses? Idiot
  3. By time this is over the deaths of perhaps 10s or even 100s of thousands of people will be the fault of an unintelligent egomaniac who somehow was given the presidency. US wasted months failing to prepare for Coronavirus He and every last one of his supporters who can't come clean on this deserve nothing but derision and contempt.
  4. More abject stupidity from a president who appeals to the least discriminating and least intelligent people. Trump promotes dangerous drugs of questionable efficacy.
  5. Trump didn't cause the coronavirus. But he did cause this. Despite having the advantages of massive wealth and months of advance notice, the US is now the epicenter of this mess. Trump delayed, denied and obfuscated his way through inaction and he now owns the results. There are credible reports that his administration is punishing states that criticize him by denying them medical supplies. The way trends are going, it will soon be worse than Italy, with overcrowded hospitals and doctors flipping coins to determine who lives and who dies. If complete chaos is avoided, it's only due to the actions and leadership shown by states and cities. Watch the body language when doctors, scientists or other professionals share the stage with this buffoon. They are clearly embarrassed and horrified that this self-aggrandizing man baby has somehow become president but anyone who says anything contrary to him is removed from the stage. His own administration (Pence included) are constantly toadying to him in a way that would embarrass Kim-Jong-un. The fact that Trump's popularity is still growing in the US is a national disgrace and speaks poorly about the state of wisdom and intelligence in that country. I have nothing but contempt for the Republican Party or anyone who continues to support Trump. Democracy depends on people being wise and humble enough to see the limits of their own abilities; and also wise enough to recognize the strengths and limits of others. On this basis, democracy is failing miserably. Perhaps, it will be another casualty of the virus.
  6. False equivalence. However much they might stretch the truth, it isn't even remotely in the same league as Trump. He tells lies almost every time he speaks and they are easily disproven. The comparison is really idiotic. Sure - you could compare Trump to any of them. Take your pick. Trump wouldn't allow people from his own fuqqn administration to testify. Why not?? What is he trying to hide?? What is it about people in his cult that can't wrap their heads around how wrong this is? Maybe that's where the psychologists and sociologists should focus their efforts. Oh, wait. They already are. Bad guy? Lemme see. He's refused to rent to black people, making him a raving racist. I guess that's not a problem for many of his followers. He has a long record of ripping off contractors. I guess his followers don't mind if he's a crook. He used charities to enrich himself. I guess you must be OK with that. His multiple bankruptcies show him to be shitty at business so he's a fraud. Tony Schwartz, the person who actually wrote "Art of the Deal" called him a "scared child" and has repeatedly warned people about his narcissistic personality. He's a blatant misogynist. He's cozied up to the world's worst authoritarians including MbS, Kim Jong Un, Putin, Erdogan and Duerte. His fraudulent university ripped off thousands of people. He's defended and been defended by white nationalists and white supremacists. He and his family have used his presidency to enrich themselves. He's divided the country and encouraged racism. Bad? I don't know quite how delusional you need to be not see see him for what he is. Maybe you can share.
  7. There is excellent documentation that shows Trump is a prolific liar. Why people choose to listen to him is an interesting question for psychologists and sociologists. However, I'd point out that lots of lying sociopaths, including Hitler, had huge followings. Just because people listen to you doesn't make you right. It just means that people aren't very rational. Yes, "acquitted". LMFAO. Do you even know what scare quotes are? Trump was indeed "acquitted" in a "trial" that didn't allow witnesses. Sounds like a Soviet-style trial. If he was innocent, why was the White House trying so hard to block the first-hand witnesses from testifying? It doesn't really make a lot of sense, does it?
  8. Because. he. is. president. And the attorney general is corrupt. For anyone who watches something besides Fox News, this really isn't too hard.
  9. I don't recall saying it was all Trump's fault. I'm no huge fan of Obama or either Clinton. US politics is one enormous cesspool. The country is deeply dysfunctional. But far and away, Trump is worse than either Obama or the Clintons and the red states are, on average, far worse than the blue ones.
  10. I should point out that the above number is averaged across the country. The poverty is considerably worse in Trump-voting southern red states.
  11. Maybe things like "data" and "thinking" aren't your strongest points. The US doesn't have the highest median income in the world (I haven't the foggiest clue what "per median income is") but it does have one of the highest poverty rates in the developed world. Over 20% of kids live in poverty. https://data.oecd.org/inequality/poverty-rate.htm
  12. Sadly, many of them won't. The US prefers to keep its citizens poor and dumb.
  13. Hey, look at that. Apparently, it's OK just to quote half the article now.
  14. Here is some honesty from Alberta that you don't see from the main parties, who are more comfortable just feeding the myths.
  15. Note to the moderators: I see you've chosen to ignore the misogynist reference to Rachel Notley. Not surprising - right wingers get away with anything on MLW.
