    Every time this thread moves back up the page I open it hoping the useful **** is dead. Disappointed again!

    . I also thought it was racist to say to Weijia Jiang “go ask China”

    If he’d made the same comment to a black or Hispanic journalist, it wouldn’t have been racist. I don’t think we should be focusing on that comment to be the problem.

    I’d love to have seen the media slow clap him off the stage after that little flounce.

    I don’t think he would have – she’s the journo that a White House staffer said “kung flu” to last month, shortly after which Drumpf proclaimed that saying it is not racist – she gets a ton of stick for not naming the staffer. I thought it was an odd thing for him to say, and odd that she reacted – now it makes more sense to me, with that little excitement last month.

    He didn’t, though.

    Agree it doesn’t really register on the Trump scale of thunder****edness though

    Dr. Rick Bright testifying in front of the house at the mo. Brave guy, really feel for him – the Trump administration will discredit him somehow.

    Jamze – they’re pretty much the same words he’s used to dismiss others; maybe the orange buffoon has memorised them for repeated use.
    Should be easy for Rick Bright – or US media – to find photos of Bright and trump together.

    On Fauci’s latest guidance- “I was surprised by his answer actually, because, you know, it’s just to me – it’s not an acceptable answer, especially when it comes to schools”

    Not a good sign…

    The man is a proven racist, you only have to look at comments he’s made in the past especially towards women.

    I really don’t know why he has experts around him as he seems to ignore or criticises everything they say or recommend and do what he wants.

    I hadn’t been aware Trump and the reporter had history, the reactions and cries of “racist” make more sense.

    The ‘N1H1’ slip-up was quite amusing at that factory visit. He paused…and then repeated the story of how Biden always gets that muddled up.

    He was talking about his brother Fred, so I googled that – he died aged 42.

    Interesting that his grandfather, Frederick Trump died in 1918 and was actually one of the first reported cases of Spanish Flu. Trump has often said he ‘didn’t know people died from the flu’ 🙄

    Not seen any mention of Sarah Cooper here yet. We don’t need to see the orange lunatic himself now.

    Plus I can imagine him choking on his own rage at this.

    I’ve seen a couple of Sarah Cooper videos they are good. But reading the Guardian interview with her I love this bit

    WTF!!!!!!!! word salad…

    When you see them going into those hospitals and, they’re puttin’ the stuff you deliver, but they’re wrapping themselves, and the doors are opening, and they’re going through the doors and they’re not even ready to go through those doors, they probably shouldn’t.

    This should get the US to 200k deaths and quickly; opening for business, with or without vaccine.

    To be fair, he’s got more important things to be worrying about other than a couple of hundred dead people

    Seems he’s now channelling Star Trek, the search for a vaccine is to proceed at warp speed and the doctor at the head of it is William Shaffner, at least according to R4 this morning.

    Another bizarre Trump day.

    His presser in the Rose Garden was disrupted by a truckers protest. He says ‘That’s the sign of love, not the sign of your typical protest’.

    Operation Warp Speed gets announced.

    McEnany spent the day carrying around two WHSmiths A4 binders as proof that they did indeed have a tested pandemic plan that they are following. Did it take 4 months to find it? I assume this is in response to Bright’s testimony that the existing plans were ignored. Trump suggesting they never existed. Mitch McConnell stated Obama didn’t leave one. Then ex-Obama staffers posted it for all to see.

    McEnany went into more details on how Obama’s plans were no good, so they redid all the plans and did a full test of a pandemic response last year. When asked why they didn’t notice the national stockpile ‘cupboards were bare’ at that point she said they were far too busy dealing with bioterrorism threats (Obama’s fault) 🤔

    Good news, Trump has a plan.

    Then later on Fox, McEnany was asked what’s in the plan to tackle any second wave. ‘No, we have not made plans for the possible return of the pandemic’.

    Then he finishes the day with…

    If he wins a second term the US is going to be a no-go zone for travellers, it’ll be riddled with Covid-19 for years to come even if they manage to make a vaccine. You can guarantee that first supplies will go to the rich and wealthy with the poor and marginalised at the back of the queue. If he loses and we get someone else then they will have a massive amount of crap to undo in addition to dealing with the mess of Covid-19 which will take years.

    Either way the US is going to be the leper of the world.

    Will be very interesting to see how his Warp Speed initiative works alongside the WHO ACT Accelerator initiative. Someone did ask him what happens if China finds a vaccine…

    From memory, China, Russia and India are not signed up to the WHO initiative either.

    Who would be stupid enough to pin their future on the US as a major trading partner going forwards eh?

    International Trade Secretary Liz Truss said:

    The US is our largest trading partner

    So theres the first lie in the first sentence uttered by **** truss.

    £291 billion of trade/45% of uk exports are to the EU
    £220 billion of trade/19% of uk exports are to the USA

    I didn’t bother reading anymore

    They’d duck that as EU isn’t a partner, it’s a group of partners (I do agree though)

    But your maths doesn’t add up either, if 220M is 19%, 45% would be close to £500M
