Donald Trump Says America’s Ventilator Shortage Was “Unforeseen.” Nothing Could Be Further From the Truth.
“We have tremendous numbers of ventilators, but there’s never been an instance like this where no matter what you have, it’s not enough,” Trump said on March 18. “It sounds like a lot, but this is a very unforeseen thing. Nobody ever thought of these numbers.” A day later, he doubled down, noting that “nobody in their wildest dreams would have ever thought that we’d need tens of thousands of ventilators.”

Except, of course, somebody did think that. A lot of somebodies, actually, and for a very long time. Almost every federal agency you can imagine has, in fact, warned about shortages — and some have offered specific and sobering estimates of need — for the better part of two decades. (...)

A reporter asked Trump why there is a gap between things he says (e.g., millions of tests) and what happens in reality. Trump says he hears “good things” are happening on the ground. No one asks: Well, how can we trust anything you say? Why do you say things that are demonstrably not true? (...)

More than three years into the Trump presidency, you might hope that the media figured out how to convey the degree to which Trump is entirely out of touch and ill-equipped to handle a deadly pandemic of massive proportions. You would be wrong.

We would all be safer if he were locked in a closet for a few months.

Today's press briefing started with him talking about getting the release of a hostage overseas who is terminal.  Truly good news, but he spent 5 mins talking about one person and the amazing work of his team while every other family in America waited to hear anything about why they can't leave their homes for the next month.

Only those who credit his leadership remain on stage (which is why a dozen is down to 4).  His new nickname is "China virus", having used his famous sharpy to correct the notes he was given that called it Corona.  His stupidity is already killing people, and when someone does the regressions to show what reacting to this a month earlier would have done for the country...fake news!

Media Dutifully Report Trump’s Fiddling as Coronavirus Burns Through World
  • He called COVID-19 a “foreign virus” and promised “the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront” it in “modern history.”
  • He banned “all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days” to “keep new cases from entering our shores,” though later this turned out only to apply to non-US citizens (and not to people from Britain or Ireland, either, for some reason); Americans traveling abroad will still be tested (somehow) before being allowed onto planes.
  • He announced that “I met with the leaders of health insurance industry who have agreed to waive all co-payments for coronavirus treatments,” which turned out not to be true (Common Dreams, 3/12/20), and that “we are cutting massive amounts of red tape to make antiviral therapies available in record time,” even though antivirals for the new virus aren’t available yet and may not be for some time (AP, 3/11/20).

CDC urges Americans to stay safe by doing opposite of everything Trump says
 

At this point, Trump should be required to appear in public dressed only in those hospital gowns that don't quite close in the back. OR, to save people from that awful flabby sight, hot pink slankets.

Donald Trump has sown fresh confusion about the US government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic by claiming that a therapeutic drug will be available “almost immediately” – only to be contradicted by officials.

Trump Betrays His Promise to Protect and Fight for American Workers
Meanwhile, although Trump bragged in June 2019 that the wages of American workers “are rising at the fastest rate in many decades,” this claim is far from the truth. In fact, wages rose faster only a few years before, under his predecessor. Furthermore, an examination of what economists call “real wages”―wages offset by inflation―reveals that they have remained remarkably stagnant during the Trump era. As the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics later reported, “real” average weekly earnings of American workers rose during 2019 by just one-tenth of 1 percent.

The wage stagnation of the Trump era is particularly hard on America’s vast number of low-paid workers. According to a study by the Brookings Institution appearing in late 2019, 44 percent of U.S. workers (53 million Americans) were employed in low-wage jobs that paid median wages of $18,000 a year. The writers of the report concluded that “nearly half of all workers earn wages that are not enough, on their own, to promote economic security.” Moreover, as data gathered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates, the percentage of low-wage workers has grown dramatically. Naturally, many of these workers have been forced, by economic necessity, to work two―and sometimes three―jobs to survive.
But his economy!

Trump has repeatedly tried to downplay the virus.

The president has pushed a widely disputed claim that the virus would “go away” once the weather gets warmer. “We’re probably down to about 10” cases, Trump falsely claimed during a press conference in India on Tuesday.

 
Speaks volumes about the conservative community that their leadership is spewing utter bullshit about a potentially catastrophic virus.

Trump held a rally in Manchester on Monday night, where he reiterated a debunked claim that voters from Massachusetts drove up to the Granite State to vote in 2016. “Remember last time?” Trump asked the crowd at Southern New Hampshire University. “We won the primary tremendously.

"Hundreds and hundreds of buses" full of Massachusetts residents who were somehow magically able to vote in New Hampshire?  He's just allowed to repeat lies (sometimes ones like this which are entirely unsubstantiated) endlessly - what does that say about his supporters?  Looks like his knowledge of American geography and history hasn't improved much either:

“Concord. I love Concord!” Trump exclaimed. “Oh, Concord. Do you know how famous Concord is? Concord. That’s the same Concord that we read about all the time, right? Concord. I love Concord.”
It’s quite possible that the Concord Trump referred to was the one in Massachusetts, which is where the “shot heard 'round the world” helped kick off the American Revolution.
 
What was especially fun was his pronunciation.  Con-Cord vs the local Kahnkud.  Should have gone to Hahvud instead of Penn...he'd know bettah.
