More lies.

Image result for trump press cornoavirus press conference image

“The code of the con is to know just enough about everything so you can lie about anything." ~E. Tancarville~ 

I know I shouldn't be watching Donald trump's nightly liefest and propaganda filled news conferences to the nation, but it's like a car wreck on the highway, I find myself unable to turn away. Honestly, they don't need to bring SNL back, because the comic relief this guy gives us night after night is better than anything that they could ever write on one of those shows.

It's sad, too, because the purpose of these press conferences is to give the nation a daily update of what is going on with the deadly coronavirus. But sadly, night after night respected doctors and health professionals have to stand aside and listen to this egomaniacal buffoon tell one glaring lie after another. 

These press conferences have come to take the place of his rallies, because he no longer can meet with large groups of his cult followers to soak up the glow of adoration they pour on him.  And so, at least for now, these press conferences will have to do.

The poor journalists whose job it is to ask questions, are finding out they they are the villains in his sick game. If they dare to ask a legitimate question, he lashes out and calls them fake news. If they attempt to fact-check him, he openly and brazenly lies, because he realizes that he will not be fact-checked in real time. In that room, it's just their word against his, and unfortunately for them, the bully pulpit always wins.

Last night was no exception. trump told lie after lie about his response to the virus, and added yet another scapegoat for his missteps: The World Health Organization. He even threatened to pull funding from the organization. Imagine that, pulling funding from an organization that is responsible for monitoring the state of the world's health when there is a global pandemic raging. 

He kept touting a drug that has not been proven to cure the coronavirus, and like a true conman, he had an example of a woman who had miraculously been cured after taking his magic drug. The lady in question was African American, and he made sure to let us know that. ("She spoke so well. It was unbelievable!" You know, cause black folks are not expected to speak well. Shades of Joe Biden and his Obama articulate gaffe.) The drug in question is now in short supply for people who really need it, and this is a direct result of trump's actions. But hey, in the con game, only the present matters. 

We did learn one thing from this press conference and the medical experts last night, and that is that blacks are being more effected by this virus than all other segments of the population. They said that they are still trying to figure out why, but there is no need for that. I will tell them why: It's because blacks are the ones cleaning in environmental services and working on the front lines in hospitals, as well as other essential service industries. It's because black folks can't afford to take off from work and "social distance". They have to decide if they want to take a chance and die from hunger or the virus.  It's because blacks continue to lag behind the rest of the population when it comes to having proper healthcare and access to proper nutritional foods. It's because regardless of what you might hear, when it comes to healthcare- like so many other aspects of American life- there is no true equality in this country.

trump, of course, had a lie for that as well. "We are going to take care of the African Americans".  

Those words should terrify every African American in this country.

It’s also because, right off the top, black people disproportionately live in the big city.

Major urban areas are some of the hardest hit places in the country when it comes to the epidemic. This is not a surprise to anyone. Urban areas get more international visitors (especially NYC, which has gotten hammered) who could have brought in the virus from China, other parts of Asia, or Europe, and urban areas are densely populated, which is ideal for rapid spread of an infectious disease. And lower-income people, which includes a lot of blacks, live in especially crowded conditions.

As with every other infectious epidemic in the history of mankind, rich people have fled to their summer homes outside the cities to wait it out.

Here is a perfect example of Trump’s new press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany,
lying her ass off.
She’s not even bothering to try to make it a believable lie; she’s just counting on the fact that Republican voters are too dumb and Obama-hating to know the difference.

It is not hard to figure out why Trump hired her. The Fox Newsification of the federal government continues.

Instead this snake oil salesman and his traveling medicine show cry about being treated unfairly by the press and blame others for their faults. Just sad what this country has become. Biden can't get into office and fumigate soon enough.

If you voted for Trump, then you are interested in not only wishing death on people but making it happen.

Death by the air and water pollution he has allowed.

Death by the food stamps he has (tried to ) deny.

Death by the asylum he has refused.

Death by the police brutality he has promoted.

And, overwhelmingly, death by his colossal failure to contain COVID-19.

That is what happens when you cast a “spite vote” against the people you consider enemies.

Picture this, the summer/fall 2016 rallies in which Candidate Trump bellows to "The African-Americans" what do you have to lose by picking Trump? Fast forward nearly 3.5 years, and the friggin' answer turns out being a death sentence to a disproportionate number of black communities with limited access to health care or even quality of life essentials. Our rural communities also are encountering similar outcomes to the point it totally sucks several red states governors declined Medicaid or to expand services. How this madness unfolded is beyond infuriating. So looking forward to light at the end of the tunnel on the form of a sensible, experienced and compassionate administration.

The so-called fact is merely the ramblings of a tone-deaf, cherry-picking supremacist wanna-be. So how about the predominantly white sunbathers frolicking on the Florida beaches as though the US were not in the midst of a national health emergency? Or the 70 Texas Univ students carousing off to Mexico only for 24 of them to test positive for COVID-19?

Granted folks from all walks of life are not adhering to safety guidelines and regulations. Your tone-deafness quite frankly borders on obtuse because the conversation are black people and other people of color deemed essential workers who end up being exposed to coronavirus.

Another reason why black people are dying at higher rates from COVID-19:

Black people tend to live in places with poorer air quality and, consequently, have more asthma and other pre-existing lung problems. Which leaves you shit out of luck if you’re then exposed to a virus that attacks respiratory function.

So I was watching Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. He was on about how Trump is touting hydroxychloroquine therapy. He mentions that Trump has gone to a great deal of trouble to learn how to pronounce this word. HE then showed a montage of a dozen successive attempts to pronounce the drug name by Trump. Like you say. Right now, Trump is writing the jokes. Turns out that Trump has financial interests in a company that manufactures medical hydroxychlorquine. (How's that? I spelled it twice!) That's right. Your snake oil pitch man really is selling the drug. Serious conflict of interest here. Simply does not matter who dies or who spends their entire savings on the drug. Trump likes to receive money as much as he gets off on power.

From an email I got from Affordable Housing Online:

Economic Impact Payments are expected to begin by April 17, 2020 and paper checks will start to be mailed out on April 24, 2020, according to multiple sources.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on April 2 that qualified taxpayers who have their direct deposit information on file will get their payment "within two weeks." An article by NBC News also said that it obtained a memo stating the start of payments was “likely” to be the week of April 13. These both suggest the same timeframe.

If you have not given the IRS your direct deposit information, The Washington Post reported on April 2 that paper checks won't be mailed until April 24. It could take almost five months to issue all paper checks.

Taxpayers with the lowest income will receive checks first. These are the dates the IRS plans to mail checks for those who earn under the amount of each income tier:

April 24: $10,000
May 1: $20,000
May 8: $30,000
May 15: $40,000
May 22: $50,000
May 29: $60,000
June 5: $70,000
June 12: $80,000
June 19: $90,000
June 26: $100,000
July 10: $120,000
July 17: $130,000
July 24: $140,000
July 31: $150,000
August 7: $160,000
August 14: $170,000
August 21: $180,000

If you’re not set to receive your payment when it starts being sent out to taxpayers, don’t worry. The IRS assures on its website that payments will be available throughout the rest of 2020.

Isn't it funny that when you build a machine to recognize patterns and turn it loose on datasets including humans of different races, it recognizes the same patterns that humans have noticed among themselves for centuries?

I mean, come on.  Isn't the whole point of diversity that we're all the same and all HAVE to be the same, especially in how we think, feel and talk about diversity?  Oh, and hate white people.  We ALL have to hate white people too.

Faucci is a swamp creature with financial interests in Bill Gates' vaccine company.  It's a lot easier to make bank with a one-of-a-kind drug selling for $100 a dose than with a generic that wholesales for pennies.

Exactly the point of the article, machines do what we program them to do. Did you read it?

But yet he's still on the covid virus team. You would think that if that was true trump would fire him so he could continue to drain the swamp. Oh that's right, trump only hires swamp creatures. Ha!

Coronavirus in New York came mainly from Europe, studies show.

The virus came to Italy because of the huge number of Chinese working in Lombardy and flying back and forth to Wuhan.  This is on China and the globalists.

How do you program a machine to be racist, when it's only acting on the data YOU gave it?

It's almost like race is a biological reality or something.  Nah, can't be!  That offends $CURRENT_YEAR sensibilities.

That article on "machine racism" is funny.  It cites examples of soap dispensers and self-driving cars that weren't tested with black people—and then goes off on the "racist" results of machine-learning systems which ARE tested with black people.  Trained on them, to be precise.  Then people are shocked, SHOCKED that it... learns that race leads to different outcomes!

You could probably make the machine "non-racist" by programming it with some explicitly racial biases in its rating scales to give "equal outcomes".  Equality is the new god we all have to worship.  Any inequality is "racist".

There are two ways to be "racist".  The first is to have no experience with blacks and shun them as strange and threatening.  The second is to have experience.  African saying:  "What's the difference between a tourist and a racist?  About two weeks."

No, the whole point of diversity is not that we're all the same. The point of diversity is that people from all "groups" have something to contribute to human community and that each person is an individual. Some people are violent, and some people are dishonest, but many people in every group are good, law-abiding citizens. This can be determined only by their individual behavior not by their group membership.

Is this concept too difficult for you to grasp?

That company would be Sanofi.

According to Trump’s financial disclosure, he owns between $1,000 - $15,000 of the Dodge & Cox mutual fund.

Dox & Cox’s mutual fund has 2.9% of its money in Sanofi.

Trump owns 2.9% of something between $1,000 - $15,000.

Trump owns $29 to $435 of stock in Sanofi.

Or third, just be a racist. Thanks for your input anon. Carry on with your racist anonymousness.

Of course it is. We're talking about a person too dishonest or not bright enough to create a screen name. When you see anon 9 times out of ten it's a young not so bright person who gets their jollies posting goofy racist BS.

Fergus keeps seeing the numbers go up whenever testing is done, so hey! let's cut the funding for testing tomorrow.

"Uh, Mr. President, you'll lose the election if you do that."

"Fuck. Really? Do I have to?"

"Yes, Mr. President. Cut the funding, lose the election."

"Shit. Let 'em do it, then, I guess."

Trump's Tax Returns and impeachment trial said...


The orange tan orangutan is going to claim victory when the total deaths attributed to this pandemic totals less than 250,000. His base is easily the most confused group of social misfits since the Jefferson Davis confederates.

The one thing we can all agree on is that he has single handedly disproved the IQ argument.

So today there are fewer total ICU patients statewide in California than there were yesterday.
Whether that signifies a trend or not we can't say just yet, but it does comport with the timing of our early shelter in place orders, so maybe?

Meanwhile, the case numbers in the more rural areas of the country (and even in California) are doubling every four days.

This can be worse than it has to be, or not, it's up to us.

Not to trivialize life and health but how do you see that affecting trump politically?

dinthebeast said...

I really don't know. I would hope that when friends and family sicken and die and the economy crashes harder than the thirties, some of his supporters would reexamine their positions, but they've been proving me wrong on exactly those issues over and over for a long time.

As long as he can come up with a lie that fits their prejudices, they still have a powerful incentive to avoid looking like the marks and suckers he has played them for, and that goes back farther than his presidency to the bait-and-switch the Republicans have been selling their base since Nixon.

So perhaps it will depend on what kind of night we have on the third of November more than anything else, and whether we get to hold a fair election that day or not.

Seems like we have a lot of work to do between now and then.

Some people are violent, and some people are dishonest

So why do we need "disparate impact" law to include people who have less (even less than nothing) to contribute, and prevent the dishonest and violent from being punished for their deeds if they're "minorities"?

It's quite obvious that Republicans can't govern. Either they are to stupid or they have sold their souls to the dark side. They care only for themselves and not for the American people.

PilotX said...

"It's quite obvious that Republicans can't govern."

And the sad part about it is they do it purposely to prove government can't work. It's the dumbest things in the world, government doesn't work so elect me to prove it. Then again I paraphrase but as Nixon said stupid people need representation too.
