The Triumph of Donald Trump


Recommended Posts

 
UPDATE: Starting Tuesday, there was a lot of interest in the Trump administration $765M loan to Kodak that sent its stock from $2.11 to $60
 
But during that convo, the most direct evidence of executive profiteering was being CONCEALED from the public
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Kodak executives' surreptitious profiteering-

"........this means that when Continenza appeared on CNBC and Fox Business about the deal on the morning of July 29, he could not be asked about the transaction. 

The primary beneficiary of the option awards was Continenza, who was awarded 1.75 million options. The bulk of those, 981,707 shares, were the option to purchase Kodak stock at $3.03 per share. These options are now worth tens of millions of dollars. ......

The pressure this placed on the U.S. economy prompted many politicians, including President Donald Trump, to urge states to reopen and get people back to work.
 
Then and now, many public health experts say the country reopened too quickly.
 

How long we can expect the U.S. economic catastrophe to endure?

........"I mean, it just incredibly exacerbates inequality problems.

We have people who don't have a place to shelter in place that's comfortable or safe. And there are a lot of other things going on, people getting other diseases that they're not taking care of, mental health problems, heart problems, you name it. This is just a catastrophic situation, I think certainly the worst thing I have seen in my lifetime, the worst thing I think we have seen in generations.

And it isn't over..........

We're looking at Great Depression-type numbers.

Of course, we knew we had a very bad quarter, but we were hoping by now the virus would be calming down and things would be coming back. But we haven't tamed it, at least not nearly to the extent Europe has or Asia has.

And so I think it is still going to be very difficult for the next six months or more.........

 

......This is a health crisis that spills over into an economic crisis. And if you don't fix the health crisis, people aren't going to want to go out. We're not going to have the economy come back. It doesn't mean nothing can happen and we can't function. We will learn to live with it. But we shouldn't have to.

And you can — they should do giant stimulus. They should protect people, but there's nothing they could do that would help as much as some basic things, like improving testing, requiring people to wear masks. Eventually, there will be a vaccine, but I don't know when that's going to be.

So, yes, as long as the virus is raging, I just don't see how the economy can come roaring back........

First rule of Presidential Advance: if nobody shows up, "collapse" the event
(close the gap between the press in the back and the crowd up front),
though "crowd" seem to be too generous a term in this case. More like a small gathering.
 
Then fire your Advance Director.   :rolleyes:  :lol:

TikTokers told me they're worried Trump's ban will eliminate communities they rely on, especially during quarantine.

It also could motivate them to vote. “This will definitely be a game-changer in young voters,” one teen said.

:===================================

 
Sarah Cooper is the real reason Trump is banning TikTok

TOTAL ESTIMATED U.S. COVID-19 DEATHS: 153,459

Trump Death Clock

92,075
Estimated U.S. COVID-19 Deaths Due To POTUS Inaction
In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th. Experts estimate that, had mitigation measures been implemented one week earlier, 60% of American COVID-19 deaths would have been avoided. (For further reading, click here).

Family reunions are bigger than that crowd.

The trump campaign people must have forgotten to put those ads in the paper asking black and Latino people to show up as actors for a few bucks.

a member of WH coronavirus task force on NBC’s Meet the Press.
 
“There’s been 5 randomized controlled, placebo controlled trials,
 
that do not show ANY benefit to hydroxychloroquine,“ he said
