You are making an inference that this president is smart.  He is not. 

Of course he's smart. He's worth 2 billion.  He's also living rent-free in your brain. So think about that for a minute.

However, I'm not really certain what is more dangerous in the emotional rhetoric of your post.

Your inference that the constitutional republic hasn't been subverted by a financially elite and illusory two party ruling class.

Or your inference that the government exists to protect anyone and the president is responsible for your personal safety.

But please, continue to enjoy your bread and circus.

I was going to use the Washington Post, but readers would have to subscribe to the link.   Plus, unlike this poor excuse for a president, I will correct myself (which is what I was trying to do the last time I edit my post), and state this instead:

 

Thank You I will look at it. Although I was hoping for something a little more trusted . When I was doing my nursing research courses I was told to always suspect any website ending in .com as suspect as they are almost all monetized. Better to use sources with .edu

OK so I looked at PoliticusUSA.com and there wasn't anything of substance there accept a bunch of pop-ups designed to infect my hard drive with Viruses. The  Politifact article also does not state actual lies but rather opinions. Mostly what these cites do is school yard finger pointing "Liar, Liar pants on fire!" which we all know is what people start doing when they don't have a cogent argument.

I am not trying to offend you, but this is a very simplistic view of research.  When you go higher in your education, you will get a better understanding on how to vet information.  For example, newspapers in general are not .edus.  Thus, vetting information requires more work than looking at .edu vs .com.

Living rent free in people's brains. I plan to plagiarize that. Awesome quote!

People do seem to let dislike/hatred of that man occupy a whole lot of their thoughts.

 I am not in any way a fan of Trump and he certainly is a narcissist (but then almost all politicians are!) .

Where is your evidence that all politicians are narcists?

Well played I had to look up the bread and circus comment but it certainly is apropos to the situation.

Almost every Newspaper has political bent. And most of what they report is designed to point people in a particular direction.

I am going to step away as this is about to go into name calling and education shaming which I will not do.

Please, let's move back to the topic specifically and not meander and get off-track into full-blown Politics. It takes this thread off-topic.

Thanks.

OK so no I do not think he has Covid - he's tested weekly and there is no way that information could be contained.

If you click the title of the falsehood told by President Trump you can read the actual lie AND the evidence. I will post the first of MANY here:

Donald Trump stated on May 19, 2020 in remarks to reporters at the Capitol:  “If you look at the one (hydroxychloroquine) survey, the only bad survey, they were giving it to people that were in very bad shape. They were very old. Almost dead.”

President Trump was wrong that hydroxychloroquine studies only gave drug to dying patients

  • Trump spoke as though there was only one study that found no benefit from hydroxychloroquine, and said it only looked at people “that were in very bad shape,” almost dead.
  • There have been three studies, and all found no link between hydroxychloroquine and reduced deaths.
  • All studies filtered out the impact of underlying health problems.

I have no reason to believe he does. He seems asymptomatic. 

🤦‍♀️just because you are asymptomatic does not mean that you don't have it. Thus the need for social distancing, masks, etc which is a whole other thread.

I don't think the president has it. I do think if he did have it, he would do anything possible to contain that information.
