This documentary is fully documented.

In my view, Trump needs to be prosecuted because his stupidity has
resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths, needlessly.

More than 7 million Americans have suffered from COVID-19, including Pres. Trump. Emmy winner Jeffrey Wright narrates the documentary detailing how four years of Trump's actions brought America to this moment (warning: distressing images).

President of the United States of America Donald Trump, through his rallies, invites comparison with the infamous Typhoid Mary, Ms. Mary Mallon. There is, however, one glaring difference. President Trump spreads the disease without, as far as we know, being infected with it himself. That's quite an accomplishment.

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

PS. For those of you who enjoy a good conspiracy theory, try this one. President of the United States of America Donald Trump didn't really have a case of Covid-19 disease. The whole thing was a set-up so he could play the strong man and continue to poo-pooh the seriousness of the pandemic. Proof? How quickly did he test negative, huh?

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

The cynic in me can't help but surmise that Trump's alleged infection was no more a stunt. I could be wrong, and probably am.

Hi!

I wrote that little conspiracy theory as a lark. What's scary is that some may actually believe it. These things can have legs. I tuned in to Mr. Rudolph Giuliani's AM radio show yesterday. Within a couple of minutes, he had referenced at least one story that has been thoroughly de-bunked. The belief that the means justifies the ends, applied to political ideology, leads to all manner of mischief. Sometimes, the effects are confined to those in politics. At other times, innocents are hurt or die. Enough said. Standing apart from the fray [red/blue, lib/con, Rep/ Dem or what have you,] and watching it take place is a painful experience. There are times I almost wish I could have the conviction of a 'True believer'. It armors one against seeing the damage the belief produces.

Regards.

It's so sad when blindly partisan dupes accept blindly partisan propaganda as information.

he defunded Predict, got rid of the pandemic response team, and has spent the past year downplaying the crisis and simple measures that people could take to slow the spread. it's a ****ing disaster.

Our current president let tons of Americans die. He literally caused their deaths.

How can one decent person vote for him?

Your post is either intentionally dishonest or incredibly stupid.

THE RECENT HISTORY OF US “PANDEMIC RESPONSE” DIRECTORATES.
National Security Council is a part of the Executive Branch. Special functions are routinely run through this office and uses the resources of the Departments of State and Defense.

TIME LINE OF THE “PANDEMIC RESPONSE” TEAM’S EXISTENCE:
2009: Obama’s Administration closes the NSC Health and Security Directorate which was existing when he took office.
2014: Ebola outbreak occurred. First case in Africa was in December, 2013.
2014: First American Ebola Case and death, in September, 2014.
2014: Obama names Ron Klain as “Ebola Czar” October 2014.

2016: The Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense is created by Obama to replace the previously closed Health and Security Directorate.

2018: Directorate of Counterproliferation and Biodefense replaces Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense and consolidates 3 directorates into one.

2019: Coronavirus outbreak occurred. Fist case in China in later 2018. China has been less than forthcoming on the exact dates.

2019: First Coronavirus case in the US in January, 2019. First US Death in late February 2020.

2019: Trump establishes the Coronavirus Task Force in January, 2019.

POLITICAL IMPACTS:
In both cases, when the outbreaks occurred, both in Ebola and Coronavirus, opponents of each President attacked for dismantling the NSC Directorate and the attacks were not well founded. Obama was attacked by his political opponents in 2014. Trump was attacked by his political opponents in 2020.

FURTHER BACKGROUND:
Following the creation of the Directorate of Counterproliferation and Biodefense, the National Security Council maintained 3 Directorates that all functioned in ways that “stepped on the toes” of the folks that did the actual work that they were supposed to only coordinate and help.

As an example, the NSC is intended to inform and advise the CDC with information and background, not direct actual the work. The CDC was the group most directly fighting Ebola. The NSC only assisted by providing advice and information and helped with diplomacy and military coordination if needed. Any direction of effort and people was counter productive.

The Trump Administration COMBINED three directorates had been performing functions that overlapped and were redundant:

-Arms control and nonproliferation
-Weapons of mass destruction and terrorism
-Global health and biodefense

In almost all cases, members of the National Security Council are already working for the Federal Government, usually at the Cabinet Level. The President of the US is the Chairperson of the Council. The Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense continues working to help with CDC response(s) to the Ebola outbreak(s) primarily re-occurring in Africa through the current day. Coronavirus falls under their purview as well.

Your complete ignoring of the superior survival rates among the Trump supporting Non-Black African American population exposes your bias

What are you talking about? The white house released a statement of trump's accomplishments and first on the list is he ended covid. Obviously you haven't been keeping up with the news. And those almost hundred thousand who contracted it yesterday, fake news. How do they fix their mouths to tell such blatant lies. Jr. the other day said nobody was dying from it on a day where over nine hundred people died from covid. People who support these kinds of liars are all the patriotic flag waving bible thumping americans. Nothing matters as long as the R's 'own the libs', even the destruction of our democracy.

Dr. Fauci said many times that the decisions president made saved lives!
Fauci says Trump’s coronavirus policy decisions helped save lives


Testifying before Congress on Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci repeatedly credited President Trump for coronavirus policy decisions that saved lives.

Those measures included Trump’s decisions to ban flights from China, the UK and the rest of Europe, and the administration’s “Fifteen Days to Slow the Spread” quarantine policy, initially ordered in mid-March and then extended to a total 30 days.

Appearing before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Response, Fauci said he participated in, and approved of, all of those policies — and that he believes they all resulted in the saving of lives.

We have a bunch of broken record parrots on this site.

Has Fauci praised Trump anytime recently? Is your google search stuck on what Trump did in March?

Then, of course, you have the current actions where Trump is saying his administration defeated COVID 19 which requires one to ignore the current metrics.

I don't know if he had or did not have the virus. I was hoping that he would use it as an excuse to resign due to health reasons and not have to face the humiliation of an election defeat. Pence would be President for a few months (not that I like Pence one tiny bit), but it would be worth it to get rid of Trump. But seeing his Evita act on the WH balcony when he returned from Walter Reed, he did look like he was having breathing difficulties.

Your statement does not make sense.

Trump's incompetence has resulted in far more deaths than need by. That has nothing to do with right or left politics, and a lot to do with needless deaths.

What were the acts that The President committed in his "reign of terror" by letting the Governors work independently in their states as he provided every bit of help that the governors requested?

We know that the Federal Level doctors, when questioned, asserted that every suggestion they made to the President was implemented by the President.

As the duplicitous, back stabbing, lying, Democrat-Socialist governors got Everything they asked for quickly and completely, they thanked the President in real time for his assistance.

After the crisis was over in their eyes, the duplicitous, back stabbing, lying, Democrat-Socialist governors lied to the public and there are morons in the public who actually believe their lies as they re-write history.

It's absolutely amazing how stupid so many people can be.
