  5. PIERS MORGAN: President Trump's painfully deluded train-wreck HBO interview proved he hasn't just lost control of the coronavirus – he's lost control of reality By PIERS MORGAN FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 07:33 EDT, 4 August 2020 | UPDATED: 09:27 EDT, 4 August 2020 In every great American crisis, there is a moment where the whole world can see the true character of a President. For George W. Bush it came when he was photographed staring down from the luxurious comfort of Air Force One on the wreckage wrought by Hurricane Katrina, after his government's woefully inadequate federal response. The picture made him look detached and uncaring, and worst of all, a weak and ineffectual leader. He never recovered from it. For Bill Clinton, it came with his infamous 'I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms Lewinsky' declaration. When it turned out he had indeed had multiple sexual relations with that woman, his reputation was badly damaged. Conversely, for John F. Kennedy, you could point to his rousing 1962 speech challenging America to go to the moon, instilling in Americans a spirit of unlimited optimism, as the moment when he sparked a deep abiding popularity that lasts to this day. Similarly, for Ronald Reagan, his audacious 'Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!' command at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate to the leader of the Soviet Union, cemented his place in history. For President Donald J. Trump, there have been many grim moments during his catastrophic handling of the coronavirus pandemic that may end up defining his presidency. During an extraordinary, toe-curling HBO interview with AXIOS's Jonathan Swan (right), President Trump exposed just why the US has become a horrifyingly bad template for how NOT to combat Covid-19 But last night, during an extraordinary, toe-curling HBO interview with AXIOS's Jonathan Swan, he exposed just why the US has become a horrifyingly bad template for how NOT to combat Covid-19. In an attempt to defend his indefensible record, and specifically why the US has one of the worst death rates in the world, Trump suddenly produced a collection of graphics. 'Look at some of these charts,' he said. 'This one, right here, the United States is lowest…in numerous categories…lower than the world.' 'In what?' said an incredulous Swan. 'Take a look,' said Trump, handing the chart over. Swan, a very good and well-prepared journalist, studied the chart quickly and forensically. 'Oh, you're doing death as a proportion of cases,' he replied. 'I'm talking about death as a proportion of population.' 'Well… well…' Trump stammered. 'That's where the US is really bad,' persisted Swan, 'much worse than South Korea, Germany etc.' 'You can't do that!' exclaimed Trump. 'Why can't I do that?' asked Swan, looking understandably confused. 'You have to go by the cases,' said Trump. 'We're last, meaning we're first!' It was a stunning exchange. Here was the President of the United States telling a journalist that he couldn't mention America's shocking coronavirus death toll because all that matters is not how many people have died, but how many people have been tested. 'You know there are those that say you can test too much,' Trump blathered. 'You do know that?' Swan didn't know that, because nobody other than Trump has said that. 'Who says that?' Swan asked. 'Oh, just read the manuals,' Trump retorted. 'Read the books.' 'Manuals?' Swan pressed. 'What manuals?' 'Read the books, read the books,' Trump repeated. Of course, there are no manuals, or books, that say you can do too much coronavirus testing. Obviously, as any scientist will attest, you can never do enough testing. It's the only way to get on top of this virus until there's a vaccine. What Trump actually means is that he wishes America did less testing so they didn't have so many cases because it makes HIM look bad. That's why he doesn't want to talk about America's appalling death toll because, again, it makes HIM look bad. 'A thousand people are dying a day,' Swan told him. 'They are dying,' replied Trump. 'It's true. It is what it is.' Wow. 'It is what it is' - that was the President's staggering response to the ongoing horrific slaughter of Americans by a deadly virus. No empathy, no apology, no expression of sorrow. Just a heartless, dismissive shrug. The problem for Trump in this crisis is that the stats don't lie like he does. When Swan pointed out that South Korea has a population of 51 million people but has only suffered 300 coronavirus deaths, Trump inferred, with zero evidence, that the statistics were fake news. It's his default response to any facts he doesn't like, but now he is being exposed by the cold, hard reality of data-backed truth. The World Health Organisation reports today there have been 18,100,204 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, and 690,257 deaths. Of these, America has had 4,629,459 cases, which is 25% of the global total, and 154,226 deaths which is 22% of the global total. Yet it has just 4.2% of the world's population. So whichever way you look at the numbers, the United States is doing catastrophically badly. Trump insisted that the US had the virus 'under control' despite more than 154,000 Americans dying from COVID-19 When Swan told Trump that up to 1,000 Americans were dying everyday, the president said: 'It's true. It is what it is.' Pictured: Bodies are transferred to a temporary morgue in Brooklyn during the height of the pandemic Trump knows it, everyone knows it. But he also knows if he admits it, it may cost him the election in November. So, he's now reduced to lying, obfuscating, deflecting, and anything else he can think of to avoid being held accountable for what has happened on his watch. Last night, Americans saw their President deny the incontrovertible. They saw him pretend he's got coronavirus under control when he's completely lost control. And they saw him challenged relentlessly on all this bullsh*t by a top-class journalist determined not to let him off the hook. It made for electrifying but very unedifying viewing, combining the detached uncaring conduct of George W. Bush during the Katrina crisis with Bill Clinton's cynical lying about Monica Lewinsky. There were many other awful moments during the interview, including Trump once again offering weirdly uncritical support to accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, refusing to call the late civil rights campaigning legend, Congressman John Lewis, 'impressive' because Lewis hadn't gone to his inauguration, and stoking self-serving fears of election night mail voting fraud. But it was his meandering disingenuous nonsense about coronavirus that swiftly went viral around the world. Some people on social media even assumed it must be a comedy sketch given how preposterous it appeared and the fact it was appearing on a network famed for shows like Veep and Succession. This, sadly, was very real. I didn't laugh. Instead, I cringed, I despaired, and then I felt angry. America is being overrun by coronavirus because its narcissistic President has put his personal ego before doing his job – from spewing his dangerous 'cure' theories to trashing his top medical experts if they dare to speak the truth and boasting inanely about his covid news conference TV ratings. Trump's made the crisis all about him, not the American people. As a result, the American people are dying in massive numbers all over the country. Jonathan Swan's constantly bemused face last night perfectly summed up what we were all thinking as the President brandished his meaningless self-serving charts and spouted his nonsensical self-justifying drivel: what the f*ck is he talking about?
  6. Princess, still don't know the film. Maybe more clues, thanks
  7. Interesting how those republicans who so oppose the mail-in ballots have themselves voted by mail. and to try and make a distinction between "mail in" and "absentee" balloting is, again,the republication insult on the intelligence of the American people - they're the same!
  8. That's quite a defence this guy has of Donald Trump: "HE'S BAD BUT HE'S NOT THAT BAD."

  11. As I said, the Republicans who controlled Congress wanted term limits, which came to haunt them when Reagan wanted to run for a third term. Of course, he was probably beginning to show early signs of Alzheimers by that point. All of the experts, except the neo-Nazis, far-right extremists and worst of the GOPers recognize that FDR is one of five best presidents in American history. FDR had NOTHING to do with what happened in Eastern Europe after WW II. Many of the people in the affected countries had been under poverty, slave labor and dictatorships for hundreds of years before Stalin. There was absolutely nothing FDR or Churchill or DeGaul or anyone else could have done to prevent the Soviet Unions expansion. I realize you stopped learning world and American history after grammar school. This makes no sense whatever. What Point????????????? FDR did not want to sit out the war. He very much wanted into it because he saw the ultimate dangers of UK losing (and they would have) and potential for Europe, Asia and Africa being dominated by Nazis and Communists (Soviets). BUT, he knew the American people did not want to go to war in Europe again. That is why he started lend-lease and trading war materiel for islands in the Caribbean. Worth repeating. As I said, MacArthur was a good tactician, but not a good strategist. Especially when it came down to global politics. Bombing China very likely would have gotten the Soviet Union more involved. China and Soviets were allies at the time and Soviets would have seen nuclear attacks on China as prelude to nuclear attacks on them. It also would have caused a huge furor in our allies and their civilian populations. Not to mention the suffering of the Korean and Chinese populations for decades to come. Not a good move for a "Christian" nation. His wanting 30 to 50 nuclear bombs showed his basic ignorance of the long-term effects of nuclear weapons. He also had little understanding of where the radiation could easily spread to South Korea and possibly even Japan. Actually this shows how weak he was as a tactician even. He was unable to conceive of how to use the might of the US and the UN forces to defeat the North Koreans and Chinese.
  12. The Week @TheWeek "The eulogy never mentioned present-day Republicans. It included no reference to President Trump by name. Yet the reaction on the right to Obama was furious — just as it was during the entirety of his two-term presidency." Why Obama still drives Republicans nuts His eulogy for John Lewis was typically soaring. The reaction on the right was furious. theweek.com 6:08 AM · Aug 4, 2020·Sprout Social
