Skip to comments.200,000 dead as Trump vilifies science, prioritizes politics (Mega Barf Alert)
Posted on 09/23/2020 9:41:20 AM PDT by CedarDave
Huddled with aides in the West Wing last week, his eyes fixed on Fox News, Trump wasnt talking about how he had led the nation through the deadliest pandemic in a century. In a conversation overheard by an Associated Press reporter, Trump was describing how hed just publicly rebuked one of his top scientists Dr. Robert Redfield, a virologist and head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Redfield had angered the president by asserting that a COVID-19 vaccine wouldnt be widely available to the general public until summer or fall of 2021. So hours later, with no supporting evidence, Trump called a news conference to say Redfield was confused. A vaccine, Trump insisted, could be ready before Novembers election.
Mission accomplished: Fox was headlining Trumps latest foray in his administrations ongoing war against its own scientists.
Over the past six months, the Trump administration has prioritized politics over science at key moments, refusing to follow expert advice that might have contained the spread of the virus and COVID-19, the disease it causes. Trump and his people have routinely dismissed experts assessments of the gravity of the pandemic, and of the measures needed to bring it under control. They have tried to muzzle scientists who dispute the administrations rosy spin.

In contrast, even Dr. Fauci says there will be a vaccine by December:
WASHINGTON Dr. Anthony Fauci says by the end of this year government scientists should know whether they have a safe and effective vaccine for COVID-19. Fauci is among top officials testifying before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee on Wednesday. As the governments leading infectious disease expert, Fauci has been a realist about the dangers of the coronavirus but also optimistic about the prospects for a vaccine.
And Dr. Marc Siegel last night said he agreed we will see a vaccine maybe as early as early November (after he said that on Tucker last night, CNN said he was nothing more that a paid quack [my words] giving the worst medical advice).
The ABJ is incorrect(not surprisingly). The ever brilliant rip van byeDUHn recently let us know that 200,000,000 will have died by the time his speech was done. That, combined with the 150,000,000 he claims are killed by ‘gun violence’, pretty much leaves us survivors a lot of open space.
Um, according to the CDC, that would be 6% of 200,000.
i.e. 12,000. I think we kill more people in car wrecks. And definitely more young people.
200,000.. most of which were already dying some something else.
Big difference between WITH corona and OF corona.
This is another AssPress hit piece. These people are worse than CNN.
Well, it’s 1,800,000 less than what Biden predicted would die during his speech the other day.
I saw this “200,000 killed by Trump” bull$hit as I accidentally bumped into the VIEW this a.m. and was part of Sleepy Joe’s talking points recently. It’s being trumpeted by the libs as if it were actually true.
What a horrible and nasty thing to say about our beloved President and his wonderful work to try to contain this virus.
Read somewhere this morning that the FDA is hitting the brakes on a vaccine release and requiring additional stiffer “testing protocols” to stretch the release on out by months.
IF so, someone needs to take a good, hard look at who’s making such calls at the FDA.
Before the lockdown my small hospital had tents put up outside to receive all the dying people, we shut the world down. I think we had a total of 20 hospital patients for the whole period. We were suppose to have millions of deaths. This never happened yet we are proceeding like it has.
He also said, IIRC, that 200 people were not going to be at the holiday dinner tables this year, due to dying from COVID.
It really doesn’t matter how many, as long as he continues to be sure everyone knows it is all Trump’s fault.
The folks with blood on their hands are the anti-HCQ bunch...leftists, media and Fauxi. They’ve allowed thousands to needlessly die by preventing it’s early use in treatment. THOSE are the real murderers.
Take it as a sign that the Democrats fear losing the election. Vaccines are supposed to be a tool to increase their control, not something to make Trump look good.
I think there should be a largely peaceful protest at AP headquarters.
Given all the lying about causes of death the true figure is probably less than 100,000. One is too many, but we can thank China for ALL of them!
As long as the turkeys are okay.................
“...One is too many, but we can thank China for ALL of them!...”
Agree. We can also thank the RATs that likely colluded with them as well. And let’s not forget the Fauxi.
Heard that too. Supposedly it's in response to concerns by the naysayers that Trump will push out a vaccine even though they say it hasn't been proven effective and safe. Though a vaccine may be delayed, it won't be by months.
This POS article showed up on the morning news here in Jax today. Ran it without attribution to AP just the authors name. I did a research check to find the commie authors affiliation and for nothing fired off a note saying it was a crap article by some dem activist posing as a reporter. Nothing will come of it as the station is owned by a recent new owner from the left.
