Some fucking idiot ODs on a prescription medication that's hardly even available in the U.S. and it's Trumpy's fault.

All right then.
Really? If Hillary were out there telling people to drink bleach to cure or prevent coronavirus, would you give her a pass?
Yes. Stupid is as stupid does, and we're going to lose a LOT of stupid people (and, unfortunately, some not so stupid ones) before this is over.
Yes, people are going to die, but MORE people will die if our political leaders are flooding the airwaves with false information. If you're ok with that, that's your prerogative, but let's not pretend that the president's words do not have influence over a lot of people.
"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." —From the OSS’s psychological profile of Adolf Hitler

That's blaming the mark instead of the con artist. The law doesn't even do that.

It looks like Trump is now saying the economy must be kept running. Saying, "We must not let the cure become worse than the sickness itself".

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_ ... 6929332714

This is gaining traction among Fox News and his idiot supporters who are all willing to throw the old and vulnerable under the bus for the sake of the 'economy'.

So yeah. Anything that happens as a result of this approach is directly attributed to Trump.

End. Of. Story.

It's Time For Networks to Stop Televising Trump's Daily Briefings

They are only vehicles for dangerous disinformation and for the president*’s re-election campaign.

Saying Trump carries no blame for what his supporters do is like saying Jim Jones shares no responsibility for his cultists drinking the Kool-Aid.

This is a poor analogy. You're focusing on Trump at the exclusion of all other complicating factors. You're also placing him too close to the day-to-day business of dealing with this virus. This may be a problem for Europeans who seem to struggle to understand the gulf between our feds and the states, much less the feds and our communities.

Trump will play a part in this mess. My bet is that you've greatly exaggerated that role. I've seen talk to indicate that others are coming around to this view now too. Experts talking about Italy have noted the lack of preparation all nations will face for example, and the human tendency to be slow to respond to this kind of risk.

I got the same empty response to a few topics. In recent memory, a 'Chinese Propaganda' thread.

Their propaganda includes efforts to claim a new territory by printing it onto maps - the world over. Check YOUR map for this, if you want to be in the habit of seeing the bullshit.
