    Comment


      Like seriously, if the military took out JFK, surely the pragmatism within their culture must be thinking of a coup?

      They're going to hit 1m deaths (x2 WWII).

      Military need to take the steering wheel from this clown

            Even Fox has kinda started to realise that that dumb fucker is going to kill a million of their viewers and piss off the rest of them. It's pretty inescapable how bad he has messed up, although presumably people will still find a way to reelect him.

                Any reason given for that? Surely it would just be online enrollment and classes if physical enrollment isn't possible.

                  I wasnt involved in the modeling, the 100-200k deaths modeling, I have been involved in a few models....wow...just wow.

                      CNN reporting Fauci thrown aside due to his guidence on total US restriction. I could throw in a multitude of quotes on making repeated mistakes but this is unbelievable.

                      At a guess, they are 20-30% towards peak.

                      This is going to be unreal watching this in real time when it hits

                          He did. I'm actually lost for words.

                          For all our failings and leaning towards the Shinners due to some understandable frustrations. Thank God we don't have that sort of carnage. Politically they are still tearing lumps out of each other too.

                          All our Government needed was a sense of urgency to flick the capability switch on.

                            Kilcoole is actually grand. Too big now. Needed this recession. They were starting to move poor people in.

                              It's a whole failure across the states and internationally. The WHO fucked up, the CDC fucked up. The US experts were downplaying it to Trump in the beginning.

                              Other politicians wouldn't have done any better. Trump set up a task force back in Jan while Pelosi and Biden were saying it was an overreaction by Trump.

                              Pelosi did a photop telling people to get down to Chinatown and keep going out.

                              His political opponents took it less seriously than he did, but somehow if they were in charge they would have handled the situation better?

                              It's not like Pelosi and Biden calling for lock downs, they were literally doing the complete opposite.

                                5x12hr night shifts the last week, off tonight, herself is doing 12hr shifts in social welfare, some crazy stat that they processed nearly 19 months of claims in the last 2 weeks, shows what can be done when the unions are told GTFO.

                                Wine and pizza time, stick on latest Gardai-inside the K...yeah, that was a poor choice, the baby brother is a member, they really dont get enough credit, hopefully when this all settles, along with all the other taken for granted workers, they will get their dues.

                                  Ah stop please. He has had multiple opportunities to prick his ears up and pay attention and intervene proactively. He is STILL failing to do this.

                                  I remember a leadership course I did and the most profound thing I left with was Truman and "The Buck Stops Here" being embedded on his desk.

                                  I can forgive mistakes, but repeatable ones, driven by ego, of this magnitude are not only unforgivable but actually treasonous

                                        I posted on here in early Feb how worrying this was . Hes the president of the US , watched more TV than a Kilcoole poor person and he didn't seem bothered by it one month later . Come on he has handled it like a high school jock. Does the POTUS come with Any responsibility in your book. I understand his vision is clouded by money but come on it's obvious hes a major clusterfuck. Deflecting this shit is the worst kind of trolling imo. .

                                            He declared a public emergency in January. While the media and Democrats were taking about it just being a flu.

                                            I'm not going bogged down in this again. But what exactly would Biden have done differently if he was currently president?

                                            Bear in mind, he was dismissive of cornavirus while Trump was acting on it. And he would have been listening to the same CDC experts who underplayed the threat. He would have had the same governor's in charge at the state level.

                                            It's not some magical senario where he would have acted earlier and everything would have been great.

                                            I'm looking for more than just Trump conference lol, he's killed everyone.

                                                I think it is pretty clear at this stage that he isn't trolling and he hasn't really ever had a posting history to suggest that is even a thing. This has been a long-held opinion defended over multiple BVB's long before any of this happened. That opinion should though be fluid enough to recognize the current situation is beyond defending but here we are.

                                                  I'm a fan of yours Denny, enjoyed pints a few times, but find this parody so distasteful. Trump did some pretty good things, he has also done many INEXCUSABLE things. He once said he could shoot someone in the head and.people would still back him. I actually think that would stand up. He probably could. If he joked about models and modelling that is fucking disguising. I loath snowflake bullshitology but that's fucking disguisting.

                                                      It's just a mad thing to be defending denny. You've no skin in the game, so it baffles me. The guy through lack of leadership has helped create a disaster that will be in the history books as a US catastrophe for at least a generation, and you're posting a video clip that someone posted in April about a random comment in February. He's the president!

                                                        US could well exceed Italian infections per million by the end of next week. They're close enough already to corona exceeding daily deaths from the main disease killer (heart disease = 1775 US deaths per day). It's not big country = big numbers, its just tragedy. It's been called from the beginning as obvious based on Trump approach and now it's happening.

The guy through lack of leadership has helped create a disaster that will be in the history books as a US catastrophe for at least a generation, and you're posting a video clip that someone posted in April about a random comment in February. He's the president!
                                                                              Ah it's just weird to automatically assume things would be less of a disaster with someone else. It's not like Biden and Pelosi were more serious about it sooner, they were downplaying it and mocking Trump for going overboard. Pelosi was doing photo ops telling people to go out.

                                                                              In mid March Blasio was still telling New Yorkers to live as normal. He tried to get a 2020 nomination, would it be any less of a disaster right now if he was currently president?

                                                                              There's big cultural and governance issues too in the states. Power is much more decentralised and there's lower social cohesion.

                                                                              Rank the G7 leaders, in order of best to worse, and if you were American to be steering this

                                                                                  We all saw what was happening in Italy in Feb and early March and even up until the 13th of March which was the day we went on lockdown in Spain, people didn't quite believe what this meant. 3 weeks later it's still hard to fathom the extent that this will impact our lives.

                                                                                  Trump will be judged harshly, and rightly so, all his downplaying quotes have aged so badly in the space of weeks and even days (open by Easter etc.), that being said I don't think Obama, Biden or anyone else would have done anything differently, or at least so different that it would have made any difference.

                                                                                  Comment

                                                                                    I tend to think that other politicians are more likely to heed the word of someone like Fauci but Trump has not.

                                                                                    There's a stark difference between declaring a public emergency for the political gain vs declaring one with a tangible impact.

                                                                                    Denny showed the timeline, the timeline clearly had underlying political agendas as harsher travel restrictions were on the countries less impacted at that point. It was glaringly political but upon raising those issues, you're accused of losing of the wood for the trees.

                                                                                    I can't understand how people can't see how meaningless and intangible that "national emergency" actually was.

                                                                                    Comment

He would not have dismantled his expert advisory group for starters. He would have listened to experts from the absolute beginning and acted.

He would have had the same lackluster governors. The US was never gonna have a South Korea style response.
