    This is mad though, he can't seriously think the better outcome for his campaign optics is letting hundreds of thousands die.

    This is him failing the marshmallow test in a spectacular fashion.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    especially when if he's being selfish (which he is, given) it's his voters that will suffer mostly from this. such a fucking moron.

    As a once-Republican of sorts, I cannot understand, nor condone, what people here like about Trump.

    Well, on the bright side "states rights" actually do something here; because its simply not up to him. Sure he can do incalculable harm by withholding financial relief and federally-coordinated support, but i dont think he can actually shout "back to work expendable peons" and anyone has to listen.

    Things are changing so rapidly tho, i think there is a possibility that if the quick antibody tests actually work as advertised, more countries will switch over to a "test, track and selectively quarantine" tactic come Easter. So he might come out of this not smelling like shit, politically speaking. Huge gamble tho.

    the gloriously fucked nature of american politics means he's going to come out of that spat with better approval ratings, and it's somehow going to be the democrats taking the blame for opposing his stimulus package when the bodies start piling up.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    easy, the "lying media!" narrative plays straight to his base's prejudices, the democrats seem more interesting in figuring out how to turn the stimulus into a means-tested shitshow than actually passing anything and there has been no indication that the right-wing media machine is going to break rank on any of this shit in the first place.

    we're in a post-factual world, it what happens is less important than the narrative that can be produced surrounding the events, surely the last couple of years have taught you that ?

    Because Trump will lie, and blame, and enough people will believe his lie that the truth will not matter, because they want the lie to be true, because their self-identity and self-worth depend on it. It's a cult. No different than Jonestown, only on a much larger scale.

    Nah I knew that. I was asking for specific examples not the "anything we do Trump will twist" baseline assumption.

    People want to get back to work. Put their heads in the sand, and pretend that this is all an over reaction. Even as shit hits the fan, some people will manage to not have a catastrophic health event, and still believe that Trump put them back to work, while the welfare loving democrats wanted everybody to stop working.
