And if it happens and Biden wins the election, 4 years from now all we're gonna hear is "Why did Biden stop a stimulus package and cause hundreds of thousands of Americans to die from Covid?"

And approximately 40% of the country will go, "Yeah, why did Biden cause every single Covid death?"

Yes, it is scary. Homelessness and foreclosures. European countries are supporting their populations. We're literally killing ours or ruining their lives with this kind of evil neglect of a massive economic precipice looming if there is no aid package soon.

At least several percent of those 40% are of advanced ages and will be dead in four years so the present base may decline in volume over the next four years.

It is probably also a question of whether this MAGA BS is transmitted to coming of age voters in the future.

I suspect the majority of youth will continue to lean away from the GOP and thus rebuild the majority for the Democrats and non-GOP alternatives regardless of the tactics you're expecting. That propaganda will probably always be there to infect brains for years to come.

The phrase "Quid Pro Quo" is trending on Twitter

Trump thinks withholding a covid relief package until after the election will force people to vote for him so they can get a check. That's his quid pro quo move now.

He's stupid. People are suffering. Supporting the package the House passed would have gotten him votes, but these idiots think otherwise. Whatever man

When you combine this action with the threat to kill SS in the the future, this is like watching someone continue to nail more stakes into their own heart. This campaign is now the Walking Dead

Just like why Obama didn’t stop 911. Major failure on his part.

Trump campaign slogans:

Vote for me and I won't give you COVID.

Vote for me and I won't block the stimulus money any more

COVID - you get what you get and don't get upset

I feel better than 20 years ago

COVID -- better than the flu, so give it a try!

What's crazy about all of this is as soon as Trump's symptoms worsen what he has done in the last 36 hours will boomerang on him like a machete.

Effectively, he just gambled EVERYTHING on being able to recover quickly OR hiding his symptoms long enough to escape scrutiny. With the way this WH leaks, I'd say the odds on that wager paying off are pretty frigging low at this point

This is why you don’t let Republicans get any sort of power at the Federal level they’ve given up any pretence of governing and will gladly let millions die and go into poverty just to fight their idiotic culture war.

I mean this a completely idiotic and I have no idea who this appeals to. It’s almost like an own goal for Trump’s campaign unless he’s just willing to take the heat off Senators. It’s a **** stupid move if you ask me.


I think the answer to why this campaign continues to bungle covid response and kill any meaningful actions is on display in the idolatrous MAGA political campaign ad devoid of actual analytical assessments sitting above your post.


It’s because Trump is a sociopath with a lack of any empathy or concern for anyone who’s not named Donald Trump. He got bored of the coronavirus for Christ’s sakes! Even someone with an ounce of empathy could realize that addressing the pandemic would build credibility with voters. This goes for the sociopaths in the Senate as well.

The problem is that the Republican Party is the cult of Trump. And no one is brave enough to tell him different. See how he acted at the debate with Biden? Imagine trying to work with someone like that, after a certain amount of time you’ll just give up and say **** this ****, he can do whatever he wants.

but of course he has. The only people on Trump's debate prep team that haven't announced are Rudy and Jason Miller and Rudy was hacking up a lung on TV so that mofo has it

They've all frigging got it

Jared and Ivanka will hide it, but they're all infected

I think Pence has the virus too. His team agreed to a plexiglass barrier between him and Harris and now suddenly they are reneging on that promise. Why? It certainly is not the optics they oppose so it could mean Pence is now symptomatic

A big part of whether you get infected or not is the viral load and length of exposure. They were all packing themselves into closed spaces and traveling together without protection for a long time. Considering how decisively Rona is sweeping through the ranks it is pretty clear they all shared and transmitted the same viral loads for a minimum of days. It only takes a few seconds if there are enough droplets in the air, but these people were in each other's faces for days or even weeks.

Hope Hicks was the first to be announced, but there could have been a spreader among them even before the Rose Garden ceremony. But that gathering cemented the deed and ensured the WH inner circle was going to be fully infected. Trump knew for at least one or two days (maybe more) that he had it and he spread it to his donors and closest associates without their knowledge which guaranteed they'd pass it on unwittingly.

Yeah, Everybody Loves Donald
