...of their feelings? Can you imagine if they weren't so caught up in the bullshit impeachment and the country could have responded more quickly to the developing global health crisis?

Putin and Trump were on the leading edge.

I don't know but honestly Trump sure looked like an asshole going off on that reporter today. That is not needed especially during times like these, no matter how much he may not like this reporter or any of them for that matter. He's got Fauci and I think her name is Dr. Burk the blond lady that wears the scarves- both probably would like to stay out of the political fray. I give them credit for not making any faces during that exchange. I don't know but he sure doesn't help himself when he does stuff like that.

There was almost no overlap between the two events and Trump downplayed it for 7 weeks before lighting his hair on fire despite warnings. This starts with Trump not doing shit for weeks and not the Democrats who control half of a branch of government. Nice try though.

There is lot of people that have no paper but are good in the field of management. See Bill Gates.

Does your college make you better at driving? No.

A relative is a manager at the IN health department. Why was there an aids epidemic in Indiana? It was against Pence's faith to hand out clean needles to heroin addicted in the state. Fortunately, the head of the health department ignored Pence and did it anyway. He's a menace that doesn't believe in science.

Republicans in the state were happy to see him leave.

Very few of our politicians are "scientists" or physicians. Supposedly, many politicians are "Ivy League" lawyers. But you have to really wonder how "smart" Ivy Leagers really are. The Lori Laughlin case is just a microcosm of what has been going on for decades, if not centuries. The children of politicians and other devious influential types have been buying their way into Ivy League colleges for a long long time. They disguise it as "legacy" enrollments, but money often buys "legacy". They often don't count legacy applicant grades and test scores in "averages" as they would drive the averages way down. This would open them up to thousands of lawsuits by angry parents.

All qualifications should be based on carefully proctored standardized tests for each course, not GPAs, or which high school or college or university they attended.

About the only thing Pence can do well
is answer a reporter's question in a typical political way without losing his shit. Trump is in meltdown.

Maybe if the Prez actually read what was put on his desk...... but he does know more than everyone else and he will tell you that.

U.S. intelligence reports from January and February warned about a likely pandemic https://wapo.st/3dkqTcH

Never his fault... blame the Dems or Boogieman or ghandi or the big bad wolf... whatever you can because he makes no mistakes. Matt would tell you but he’s occupied pleasing Trump right now.

Trump is mentally ill.

Ask yourself this question: if the other men at his daily news conference had the same “tanning bed eye cover” white skin - ringing each eye - contrasted with his orange facial skin - from the tan bed - topped off with a layer of his famous orange foundation makeup - wouldn’t you think those guys were scary nuts?

Like Joaquin Pheonix appeared as he portrayed the Joker killer in his academy award winning role in the movie , Joker?

Trump’s appearance is frightening and ghastly. Yet because you are used to it - you don’t notice or consider it - just one of many signs screaming - he’s mentally ill, indeed.

The Joker, Trump is in charge of America’s response to this pandemic. No wonder we’re within hours of looking exactly like Italy - on a much larger scale - with more disease and many more deaths.

No facilities are set up to handle the overflow of patients needing beds and ventilators! Where the hell is the US military which knows how to do precisely that?

No face masks, face shields, gloves, outerwear, beds or vents to properly handle this war. Instead - the response of a third world country, a banana republic, with an insane clownish madman at the helm - making this a live horror film.
