The General 'Murican Politics Thread

Recommended Posts

Almost feels like this coulda also been done to deflect away from the myriad of things currently Trump has going against him, if even just for a few days, which could do a lot for him. A few days (hell, even a few hours nowadays) is all it takes after all to get people to move on

 

Also, in regards to the Melania stuff, I’m hearing a lot of conservatives claim the call is “out of context” or “not the full recording”.... is there a longer call that puts into context her going

I can't help but be suspicious this is an attempt to get sympathy votes from "undecided"/"centrist/moderates/whatever they call themselves" ala what happened to Boris Johnson after he got COVID.

That, and also play into a scenario where Trump "triumphantly" returns and claims he beat the virus and thus it isn't as bad as the "EEEVIL LEFTIST ANARCHIST BLM MUSLIM JEW COALITION OF DOOM" makes it to be.

Maybe it's just that Trump is such a pathological liar and monster that I can't help but be worried.

Not to mention this could be used to spread the COVID to Biden and other Democratic people.

 

EDIT: Additionally, there's also timing to consider. The next debate is in 2 weeks, and COVID generally takes anywhere between a few days up to 2 weeks to truly be certain of. Trump could just be using this to duck out of any future debates given what a disaster the first one was for him.

Well shit, Trump's being airlifted to Walter Reed Hospital. It seems to be legit illness.

Kinda hard not to say it, but looks like karma has finally caught up to this Administration. Kayleigh McEnamy has tested positive for Covid-19.

As one YouTube comment summed this mess up:

Trump Administration — “There is no pandemic.”

Pandemic — “There is no Trump Administration.”

Hopefully a lesson is learned here...

The entire Administration might have caught it; Trump's already trying to pretend it wasn't as bad as it seemed by leaving the hospital, despite COVID having periods of wellness and extreme sickness.

Also doubt they'd learn any lesson; they only want to hurt as many of us as possible and they only care because it's caught up to them like the Masque of Red Death story.

Oh, I was actually referring to the country going forward learning a lesson from this, not the Trump Administration. They’re just reaping what they sowed at this point, with added risk to others.

There's something darkly hilarious about some dumb bitch in the Trump Administration trying to throw shade at Biden over failing to control a pandemic while she is quarantined after being infected with Covid by Trump himself.

Should we be worried that this Hunter Biden thing is going to turn into "Hillary's Emails 2.0" or is this probably gonna blow over and not much the election much?

Given that Hunter Biden doesn't have 30 years of hatred, misinformation and misogyny directed at him like Hilary, Trump's evil and incompetence is evident to everyone and he's working from the position of incumbent instead of "LETS TRY SOMEONE NEW" position, and Biden is basically squeaky clean/has very little to use against him/is an old white guy who won't offend the unconsciously racist amongst the left wing,

There are just far too many blatantly obvious holes in this to be believable except to the most stubborn and reality-denying of Trumpers...

 

 

Well, it's hopefully not likely to do much, if anything,

Plus, Covid is still a thing and hasn’t been dealt with that’s interfering in our lives.

I’d like to think most people are far more interested in that than something completely irrelevant and not likely to kill them. Especially with the most powerful office in the world not being safe from it.

QAnon is basically using repackaged Nazi Propaganda.

Quote

 

A secret cabal is taking over the world. They kidnap children, slaughter, and eat them to gain power from their blood. They control high positions in government, banks, international finance, the news media, and the church. They want to disarm the police. They promote homosexuality and pedophilia. They plan to mongrelize the white race so it will lose its essential power.

Does this conspiracy theory sound familiar? It is. The same narrative has been repackaged by QAnon.
