Covering Trump

April 7th, 2020

Trump’s mob says that This Mope never called the virus a hoax. They say, he was mocking the Democrats response. OK, examine that. What was the Democrats message Trump’s calling a hoax? The Democrats called  the virus an emerging pandemic and demanded action. They demanded the Federal government manage and distribute PPE’s, ventilators and the free flow of information. Instead, Trump mumbles, it would be like the flu and “disappear in April.” Trump’s chief obfuscator, Sean Hannity, claims he never said it either, but oops Sean, there’s this thing called the internet.

Trump’s claim that he never said it was a hoax is like jumping off a 20 story building and saying you can fly. You’re right, for 19 floors. You want a real hoax? How bout everyone in this shit-show? Starting with Sean Spicer, to Sec of Energy Rick Perry, to the cluster**** on the USS Roosevelt, and the F*ckKnuckle’s lack of leadership in dealing with states not sheltering in place.

So, medical first-responders are heroes, as well as grocery clerks, truckers and Americans keeping their distance to slow the spread of COVID-19. But don’t forget the press and their battle against the tens of thousands of Trump lies that used to be simply an affront, but today threaten the lives of millions.
