At the time it was 30. And in New York Mayor Cuomo sent coronavirus positive patients into nursing homes. NJ did the same. And of course they blame trump as you. Trump acted fast. No one acted faster than trump, besides maybe Austria.

Don’t get me wrong I don’t love the guy, but I would take him any day of any week over Hillary, Barry, or Biden.
LOL!

Some Trump fact-free quotes

Quote:
January 22, C N B C i n t e r v i e w“We have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.
Quote:
When: Friday, February 7, and Wednesday, February 19
The claim: The coronavirus would weaken “when we get into April, in the warmer weather—that has a very negative effect on that, and that type of a virus.”
Quote:
When: Thursday, February 27
The claim: The outbreak would be temporary: “It’s going to disappear. One day it’s like a miracle—it will disappear.”
Quote:
When: Wednesday, June 17
The claim: The pandemic is “fading away. It’s going to fade away.”

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

There is a debate in another thread about the cognitive abilities of left and right-leaning people.

Interesting to read through this thread and see the differences.
People criticise Trump but do not waste their time and energy on Pence or other GOP people.

On the other side, people forget Biden is their target and run off into all sorts of time wasting diversions like Harris, Obama, Hillary, et al.

That's because Pence and the GOP are all petrified of Trump and he is the architect of the current situation. Remove Trump and install the Democrats and the face of the GOP is going to suffer a big reform as they do their best to avoid the same ever happening to them again. Putting aside for a moment the terrible impact he has had on the country at large in so short a time, Trump is the biggest PR disaster that the Republicans could ever have hoped for and once he is gone a lot of them are going to be having to live with the public scrutiny of their actions and the effect it will have on their reputations. I fear that history will not remember them kindly.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

More alleged criminality in Trump's inner circle!
Quote:
Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and three others were arrested and charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors who contributed to a fundraising campaign for a private border wall, the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York said Thursday.

Was there ever another US President with so many close associates arrested, found guilty, pled guilty, &&&?

Wonder how much info on Trump the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York can squeeze out of Bannon

Trump has had consistent high ratings among Republicans.

Win or lose, Trumpism won't go away.

Trunpism may not go away, but at least it won't be in a position of control and authority within a country. I am sure that even you can appreciate the subtle differences there in that rather obvious logic.

"Trumpism?" Is that that condition where someone's frontal lobes never fully developed?

Excellent acceptance speech by Biden at the DNC yesterday, blew away all those dubious claims about his mental faculties

It was a great speech and very poignant. As for his mental faculties... well the guy is objectively old at 77 (the average US male life expectancy is 78.5), so they are undoubtedly not as sharp as they used to be. However, I believe they are still good enough to be president and way ahead of what Trump is capable of even if he were 20 years younger.

Whereas Biden is a statesman, politician and diplomat... Trump is a sleazy, petty, superficial, unintelligent and thoroughly corrupt man. As far as people go, it is quite literally the difference between night and day.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I think the average life expectancy for a while male is a lot more than the average.

I would have guessed the same but its not correct.

Its 78.7 as an average across the races and 78.6 for whites. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_a...0(75.0%20years).

75.0 for blacks, 77.4 for Native Americans, 81.9 for Hispanic and 86.3 for asians.

I think this is for men and women - but it seems unlikely that white men significantly outlive minority men on this basis.
