Bet you never thought you’d be seeing this, did you?

And yet, here we are.

Because of the Loser in Chief/Liar in Chief, America is f**ked.

India, which has over 1 BILLION MORE people than the United States (which has 330 Million+), has 10,495,147 cases of COVID-19 while America has OVER TWICE as many – 22,849,962.

Let that sink in for a moment.

India, which has 300% MORE people than the United States, has LESS THAN HALF the number of cases America does.

America has OVER 117% MORE cases than India.

Because of his, and his administration’s utter ineptitude and incompetence, our nation is closing in on 400,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19… all unnecessarily.

When ebola popped up on the global public health radar, the Obama administration didn’t allow it to spread globally. And yet, what did the Loser in Chief/Liar in Chief do when faced with a possible Public Health crisis?

He cut practically ALL monies allocated for biological terrorism, and pandemic response, and eliminated practically ALL the offices, agencies and departments charged with protecting the American people.

And then, what else did he do?

Deny, deny, deny.

And when that didn’t work, he lied, falsely claiming that… well, just read it for yourself.

January 22, 2020 – While attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, POTUS was asked by CNBC Squawk Box host Joe Kernen if he was worried about a pandemic.

JOE KERNEN: It was a couple of years ago. Before we get started – with- we’re going talk about the economy and a lot of other things – the CDC – has identified a case of coronavirus – in Washington state. The Wuhan strain of this. If you remember SARS, that affected GDP. Travel-related effects. Do you– have you been briefed by the CDC? And –

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I have, and –

JOE KERNEN: – are there worries about a pandemic at this point?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: No. Not at all. And – we’re – we have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s—going to be just fine.

JOE KERNEN: Okay. And President Xi – there’s just some… talk in China that maybe the transparency isn’t everything that it’s going to be. Do you trust that we’re going to know everything we need to know from China?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I do. I do. I have a great relationship with President Xi. We just signed probably the biggest deal ever made. It certainly has the potential to be the biggest deal ever made. And – it was a very interesting period of time.

Then, on March 19 – POTUS said, “Nobody knew there would be a pandemic or epidemic of this proportion.”

We know that the President lied, because when he was interviewed numerous times by veteran reporter Bob Woodward in preparation to write a book, he later spoke with Mary Louise Kelly, host of NPR’s All Things Considered news program, pursuant to publication of the book, and was asked about his series of interviews with the President, and said that the President told him that he had known all along that the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19 disease, was much more virulent, damaging, and easily transmitted.

Mr. Woodward said that in his February interview with Trump, he thought Trump was referring to the virus in China, and told her that, “I … believed he was talking about the virus in China, because he had talked to Chinese President Xi [Jinping] the night before.”

Woodward also said by March, that he personally knew the coronavirus was an “American problem” as well, “And so I’m asking the question, what did the president know, when did he know it, and how did he know it? And I worked for 2 1/2 months to find out and it was finally in May when I discovered that there was this meeting, January 28, in the Oval Office.”

He added that, “I wish I knew what I learned in May earlier. Unfortunately, I did not. I’ve done this almost for 50 years, and I think I have a public health responsibility, like any citizen does — or maybe a journalist has more of a responsibility. If at any point I had thought there’s something to tell the American people that they don’t know, I would do it.”

It was also in Woodward’s March 19 interview with Trump that the President said, “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

But, then again, you probably already remember all this.

When one builds a house of cards upon a foundation of lies, there’s nothing of any good that could ever come from it.
